TTDIHALC - Day 20 - Fav Colour

Hey everyone!

The prompt for today is 'fav colour', to which I was like 'do I go with my in real life favourite colour or my nail polish favourite colour?' In the end, I went with my in real life favourite colour, which is green, any and all shades. Always makes my brain happy.

Then I remembered THIS PIN and was like 'that is exactly what I need to do!'

One kind of baby problem came up.. my polish did some very weird activity when sprayed with the alcohol. I don't know if it was because of the polish type I used.. I normally do that method with black nail polish and have zero issues.. so I am wondering if this metallic-y bad boy just wasn't affected the same way. Eh. I am still beyond thrilled with the result.

Also. I do apologize.. as I was editing these photos, I noticed that my cuticle oil was still.. visible. My fingers have been very dry, and I pick my nails/skin on a normal day, but lately I have been pretty stressed out (many factors.. illness, work, etc) so I have been picking and picking until I draw blood. I was able to edit wounds out, but yeah. I am making it a new habit that when I started picking, I have to either stop and apply lotion or cuticle balm/oil. It is starting to help. Annnnyways. Nail time!


I used:
  • unlabeled Color Club dark green polish
  • OPI Just Spotted The Lizard
  • Alcohol spray

I absolutely love this whole water-marbling-without-water-marbling effect. Obsessed!

See you again in a couple of days!! Fav design prompt is next.. any ideas what I will do??

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.
