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!!

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!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
