MerMAN, dad, merMAN

Hey everyone!

When I received a wealth of nail mail a few weeks back, these two screamed a mermaid scale mani with the little nail charms I had also received.. the only itty-bitty-teeny-baby issue?

Not enough contrast.

Whoops!

Thought that counts, right.. right?!

I still think these look exquisite.. but hey, I am slightly biased (and also my own worst critic, but I digress)

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Girly Bits Dreaming Tree (can be purchased HERE)
  • KBShimmer I've Seen Sweater Days (can be purchased HERE)
  • My Nails Did Mermaid Scale Vinyls (can be purchased HERE
  • Starfish Nail Charm (sent to me from LadyQueen - link on sidebar w/ 15% off code!!)
  • Random Nail Pearls
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I honestly love everything about this - minus the fact that you cannot really make out the scale-age (needed more contrast..) BUT! Still rad - and, I managed to keep it on for 3-5 days (cannot quite remember) and I took them off  BEFORE I picked off any of the goodies.. yeah.. so, go me!

Have a great day - 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.
