Countdown To Christmas: CHRISTMAS DAY Nails.. 1 day late.

Hey everyone.

Well. I did it. I failed. I apologize. I allowed my sickness to overcome my will to do my nails. I rocked naked nails for Christmas.. though, I did sleep for basically 18+ hours of the day, sooo not too many people had to see my naked nails. I plan to be better by Saturday aka tomorrow, as that is when I am spending time with my family. Le sigh. I was sick last Christmas, and just did a repeat this year. Lame. Next year I would like zero illness, thanks.

Anyways. On Christmas eve I stopped by a store that my friend manages because.. I felt I needed to give myself another Christmas gift and get some more boots. Found a pair, and then as I was leaving, she mentioned me doing reindeer nails. Now, there are those really fancy Far Isle stag-print reindeer, or cheeky cartoony reindeer. At the time, I didn't ask her to clarify, but, I went with cheeky for today. Plus, my nose would not give me enough time to do anything too lengthy work wise as it needs to be blown every 2.358 minutes. Dumb.

I used THIS PHOTO as my inspiration, and just added a holiday classic nail polish.. which I believe my sister actually bought this one.. I stole it. Sorry Lee-Lee!


I used:
  • China Glaze Party Hearty
  • Essie Little Brown Dress
  • Essie Mink Muffs
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • OPI Coca-Cola Red
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Little brush
  • Dotting tools

Some of my reindeer look a little crazy, but I am quite ok with that. They make me smile.

Thanks for popping in to check out my Countdown to Christmas nail art series, it means a lot. Hope you enjoyed them, and maybe even tried a few yourself.

See you again real soon with another post! I sincerely hope everyone had a great Christmas, no matter how/where/when you celebrate it. Or not. I just hope you had a good festive time. There we go. And, done.

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
