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??

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..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
