TTDIHALC - Day 4 - Sparkles

Hey everyone!

For day 4 of this #nailartjan challenge, it calls for sparkles.. and I had the perfect photo for inspiration. Scope THIS PHOTO here by mrslochness on instagram.. go drool, as I have already done. You see why I had to take a stab at this, right?!

I wish I would have captured a bit of video for this.. you cannot imagine the amount of sparkly goodness that this mani gives off. Sparkle heaven, really.


I feel like I have to get used to my new camera more.. I feel like these photos are not doing this mani justice.. but.. it is the thought that counts, right?!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze Midnight Kiss
  • China Glaze De-Light
  • OPI Comet In The Sky
  • Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I started off with a base of gold polish, then painted on my gold glitter polish. Once that dried for a few, I tossed on a coat of Comet In The Sky, then a coat of Gelous followed by some Seche. I used the Gelous to give the glitters a smooth finish rather than that gritty texture that multiple glitter polish layering tends to give off.

That is all for today.. see you again next time!!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

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