TTDIHALC - Day 14 - New Technique

Hey everyone!

Sorry, I am a couple days late getting my blog post up.. BUT! I did post these on instagram on the 14th.. so technically, not late - gnome sayin'?

Anyways.

For the new technique prompt, I was stuck.. I looked at millions (ok.. hundreds) of photos, and was like 'did, did, did, did' and was coming up empty-handed. I posted a quick memo on the PAA page on FB asking for help, and I got it. Two came up a few times that I was like 'hmmm'. One was nimbus nails ala The Nailasaurus and the other was shaving cream marble. I had done similar techniques to the nimbus nails, so I really wanted to do the shaving cream nails, but the dude was already low on shaving cream (mental note: buy an extra can to try the shaving cream marble!), so I went with nimbus because acetone and q'tips, I got!



For this, I used:
  • China Glaze White on White
  • China Glaze Sunday Funday
  • Essie Bikini So Teeny
  • China Glaze One Track Mind
  • Formula X for Sephora Infatuated
  • Acetone
  • Q-tips

Scope out the tutorial by Sammy HERE. It is awesome, and easy, and looks rad!

Also. Fan girl moment. Sammy liked my instagram photo. Yay!

Sorry for having this up late.. the rest of them should be up on time. Heavily note the 'should'.

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..
