Countdown to Christmas: 1 Day aka Holly Nails

Hey everyone!

Just sneaking in with this post.. it has been a crazy last couple of days, and I was worried if I started the series before actually 'finishing' all looks, I would get caught at the end.. I sort of have, but, I did just complete this one.. so that gives me a few hours of today, and some of tomorrow to do my Christmas nails. A friend today gave me the idea of what to do for the nails I sport on Christmas. I like it. I will go with it. You shall see tomorrow.

Enough babbling, on to the nails.

Using this PHOTO as inspiration, and my smART nails nail art stencils, I came up with this..




I used:
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • butter London British Racing Green
  • OPI Coca-Cola Red
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament
  • Dotting tool
  • Little brush
  • smART nails P105

I actually quite like these stencils. Though, I did cheat - slightly. I was not waiting for the holly sprigs to dry, so I just used a dotting tool to create the berries. But. All in all, a very simple way to achieve a very intricate look. Minus my lines. Let's not pay attention to those wonky gems.

Merry Christmas eve, everyone. See you again tomorrow to share with you the nails I will personally be sporting for Christmas day. Have an amazing sleep and I hope Santa brings you rad gifts.. or, my favourite thing, time with your loved ones!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..
