The Cutest Spider.. Ever.

Hey everyone.

Yes, that is a legitimate statement, this will be the cutest spider, ever. And, for those that know me, you know the repulsion that spiders invoke in my core. I do a tap dance and basically scream/cry/try to sell my soul to the devil, anything to get away. I even barter with the spider. Like, if they disappear when I turn my back, we can pretend that we never crossed paths. It never works. The last spider I encountered even charged at me. That is enough of that story.

When I stumbled across these beauties on Born Pretty, I was like 'yes, please', and they were the item I was most excited for.

Now, I only pasted the spider to my nail for these photos. They, unfortunately, have this weird bump on the back, so they cannot adhere flush against your nail. I want to keep them for a fun special occasion mani.. so that is why it was only applied for this mani. BUT. This mani was specifically planned to showcase this little bad boy.


Guh! This mani is just so pretty/girly.. and distressed.. and spider-y, all at the same time! So good.

I used:
  • OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
  • Essie Rock at the Top
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Spider Gem

I did two coats of Don't Touch My Tutu! then did some 'sandwiching' with Rock at the Top (love this!!), then, I did the whole distressed water marbling with Liquid Vinyl. I love the whole look of this. I even switched back to my holy grail base coat-top coat pairing of China Glaze Strong Adhesive Base Coat-Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.. and I got 5 days worth of wear! It has been monnnnths with only a day or 2 while using the Glisten & Glow stuff. Apparently me and those 2 just do not mesh, which was upsetting as many people rave about it. Ahh well!

That is all for today. If you go check out the Born Pretty store, and want to pick up some rad nail art goodies (honestly, who doesn't?!), use the code AHB10 at checkout and save yourself 10%.

See you all again soon!

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..
