Dim the Lights.. It's Floral Time!

Hey everyone!

Haha.. uhhh.. my post title is killing me right now. My pals and I (my sister in particular) use the 'dim the lights...' line a lot, but originated from 'Road Trip', and it definitely does not end with 'it's floral time', but it is cheeky and I am going with it.

We have been having some very strange weather lately - yes, even for the prairies in Canada. We had a dream January (we had days that were above 0.. we had melting in January), which led to some extreme temperature lows in February, but compared to some winters, I almost feel like this was a cakewalk for a winter. And, it is intense how quick the turn around in temperatures have been. -30c on Saturday overnight.. and then up to -2c on Monday.. oh.. ok weather. Let's do this!

Because of these 'balmy' temps, I think of spring, and spring makes me think floral.. so.. here are my first set of floral nails for 2015.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • butter London Trout Pout
  • China Glaze White on White
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament
  • OPI Chillin' Like A Villain
  • OPI Cajun Shrimp
  • Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street
  • Color Club Twiggie
  • Little Brush
  • Dotting Tools
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I just really wanted to use Trout Pout again.. haven't used that gem in awhile. Then I decided to stay in the colour family for the flowers (roses?) and Chillin' Like A Villain and Cajun Shrimp fit the bill. Love these. Oh, and I needed gold in there just because.

Got a wealth of compliments on these.. and many thought they were jamberry (that is my fave kind of compliment) and a wealth of people lately have been telling me to start doing gel/acrylics.. who knows.. maybe some year I will learn?

That is all for today! See you all again soon!!

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!
