TTDIHALC - January - Day 2 - Fresh

Hey everyone!

When I decided to do this #nailartjan challenge, the very first prompt, I was like 'err.. fresh? wat.' Then I was like 'ok, fresh.. like.. flowers.. so floral print', then I realized I did not want to have floral nails be my first nails of this new year. Nothing against them, I just.. yeah, was not feeling it.

Then I was like 'fresh.. like.. so fresh and so clean-clean', yes, I did rap.. err.. speak some Outkast lyrics in my mind. Then it dawned on me 'fresh, like.. squeaky clean.. bubbles.. got it!' I had literally just screen capped an amazing mani photo and this was the perfect time to recreate it.

Without further ado, I give you my take on 'fresh' nails. I used THIS PHOTO for my inspiration. They were created by nailaddictart (found on instagram).




I absolutely adore these! I think they scream 'fresh'. Freshly painted.. a fresh white.. bubbles.. commme on! Perfecto!

I used:
G&G Stuck on Blu!
China Glaze White on White
Some pearls gems

I did two coats of white, then dabbed on some more base coat and just applied the pearl gems at random.. and until I was happy.

Remember to go scope out all the other rad nail art using the '#nailartjan' hashtag.. because there are bound to be amazing photos to drool over! Or, if you happen to be looking at this, let me know you are participating so I can go scope immediately.. I love that!

See you again in a couple of days!!

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!
