Valentine's Day Nails - 2015 - Set 1

Hey everyone!

Sorry I have not posted in a bit.. I was sort of waiting to see if a February nail art challenge would be posted up.. and then I had a few posts just waiting.. and finally I was like 'edit those photos and get some posts going' - so, I shall.

I am going to hopefully do another set or 2 of Valentine's Day nails. I have approximately 10 ideas jotted down in a notebook, but I don't think I will complete that many. I figure at least another 1 or 2. Mayhaps 3.

I am not a huge celebrator of Valentine's Day.. like.. not couple-y things. My dude and I met 2 years ago on Valentine's Day.. and have mostly been together since.. so I guess that is cool? I just like to either do absolutely nothing, or hang out/go out with friends - which is what the plan is for this year. What is your Valentine's Day plans? Let me know in the comments!

So, for those of you going out, or even just staying in, but want fun nails - maybe you can gather some inspiration from these posts? Who knows.

My first set of nails is a classic (ish?) nail art technique: braid. You can scope out exactly how to do it HERE. I love it because when you are finished, people are like 'ummm.. how?' and really, once you start it, you realize how simple it is.. and how awesome it looks when finished.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Formula X for Sephora Brazen (light pink)
  • Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink (pink)
  • China Glaze With Love (red)
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Those are the polish I used.. basically for a braid mani, you need three colours, can be any colours you want, and just go to town. I promise you will love how it looks when you are all done!

See you all soon with another post!

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

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

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
