You Are Outta Lime! + Where's My Blanket???

Hey everyone!

A few weeks back, I wanted to stop in at a London Drugs on our (the dude and I) way to grocery shopping as they had those large storage bins on at a really good price. We went. I got a bin. And 2 on sale polish. After we got home, I had them sitting together on my desk, and was like 'hey, these work together!' and so I made it happen.


Please excuse the smudge. I decided to stake the photos shortly after painting.. and I always fumbled my camera. I decided to go with a smudge instead of dropping my camera. I think it went really well for me!

I loved both of these polish right off the bat. The green is great - it took 2 coats to make me happy, but that is kind of what I expect from polish, period. Then the topper.. how fun!! Different sized black matte glitter and then some random orange and yellow bits? Uhh, yes, thanks.

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI You Are Outta Lime!
  • OPI Where's My Blanket???
  • HK Girl Top Coat (probably why my nail smudged.. this top coat and I do not get along).

That is all for today! See you 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!

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.

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.
