Pseudo-Indominus Rex Nails

Hey everyone!

So, I can practically hear people reading out the title of this post.. pseudo-indominus rex nails.. and you're probably like 'um.. what?!'

I'll explain.

So, it is probably absolutely no surprise that I am obsessed with dinos.. which in turn makes me obsessed with the Jurassic Park flicks. This past summer marked the release of 'Jurassic World' (which was awesome, in case you have not already viewed it). Anyways, in that flick, real dinos hanging out at a dino-zoo is a legit thing, and people are apparently 'bored' by this (seriously people!) - so the park people decide to create a dinosaur of their own - clearly a genius idea! So, Dr. Wu strings together some DNA strands, and creates the Indominus Rex! Yaaah! There are strains from a few different species woven together.. and one of them is the cuttlefish, which gave this rad beast the ability of camouflage - which leads me how these nails tie in to that.

I was sent these awesome golden 3D nail art bad boys from LadyQueen. Find them HERE.

So then I slapped on some black polish, splattered on some gold, and attached the dinos. Slight camouflage, but in the right lighting, they are detectable!


If you happen to be scoping out all the goodies on LadyQueen's site, and want to make a purchase, why don't you save yourself 15% by using the code: BSLC15

Enjoy - and have an excellent day!!

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
