The Blues

Hey everyone!

I am positive that I have mentioned at least 8 million times how blue nail polish is my favourite. I feel like it compliments my skin tone the best, or, at the very least, I feel very confident when I sport blue polish. Just on of those 'quirks', I suppose. Anyways.

When I came across THESE NAILS by Sensationails4u, I was like 'yup', but immediately slapped some polish on to my nails. I changed it up a smidge because I do not have nail vinyls (plus I probably would not use them correctly and ruin lives) so I free-handed the lines and was not pleased with the lack of crispness.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze License & Registration Pls
  • OPI Gargantuan Green Grape (yeah, believe it!)
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Dotting Tool
  • Little Brush
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I want to go on a sort of mini-rant, but not a rant at the same time. One of the first.. oh.. 20 polishes I ever bought was the "original" formulation of OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, and I was OBSESSED with that gem.. then, it was down to less than a quarter of the bottle left.. it was all thick and goopy - even nail polish thinner could make it workable. THEN. I saw that GGG was available using my points on NPC, so I went for it, and was thrilled when the package arrived because I knew I would be replacing a favourite.. only.. it was not the same polish! It is.. like.. blue. Um. Duuumb! I mean, like my sister pointed out, it is still a nice polish colour, but it was not the colour I expected it to be. BUT. Then I can use it in manis like this, and it is rad. So. Rant in the fact that I no longer have that particular shade in my collection, and non-rant because it is not a total loss.

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!
