Everybody Walk The Dinosaur!

Hello everyone!!

Long time, no post - I know. I took a little mental vacation.. I have still been doing my nails and photographing them, but the idea of uploading, editing, and preparing posts just sounded like a nightmare. Yes, I know, in the grand scheme of things, it really is not a lot of work, but to my mental state, it just seemed like too much. I apologize.

I am starting to feel recharged, and good 'mentally' (I realize this makes me sound like I am really out to lunch/a space case, but I promise it is just health related and that it just affects my moods. I am not depressed or bipolar or anything else.)

Funny that the things that spurred me to post was snapping off my long ass nails yesterday. Ok, one snapped off, the others I just clipped down. My post for today will feature my newly shortened nails, and then my next few posts will feature my long bad boys that I had for quite awhile. Admittedly, I missed short nails. So much easier!

I was looking for inspiration earlier, and one group of gals gave me a bunch - I was just getting some supplies ready to do something else, when I saw my dino nail decals and completely changed what I wanted to do.

I found the base photo HERE and just.. went from there!


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze Violet-Vibes
  • China Glaze Glow With The Flow
  • China Glaze Treble Maker
  • China Glaze Daisy Know My Name?
  • China Glaze Home Sweet House Music
  • China Glaze DJ Blew My Mind
  • MakeItStick Dinosaur Nail Vinyls
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I honestly used two triceratops decals, as those are my favourite dinos, but I got to say that the pterodactyl and t-rex decals are killing it with the background!

That is all for today. Happy to be back. I am hoping to post 1-2x a week, mayhaps more, mayhaps less, but I am back.. well.. I was always still present and doing nails, just not sharing them. Fail.

Take care until next time!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).

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!
