December 1-5 GLADvent Calendar

Hey everyone!

As promised, here is a run down of my advent gifts for December 1-5.. If you have no idea what I am talking about, please visit this post HERE.

 Day 1: A lovely bracelet with an orange-y red butterfly printed bead.. It was mentioned that there was going to be a bracelet with some charms tossed in along the way.. Very cute! It looked so tiny, I didn't think it would first around my wrist.. but it does.. with a wealth of slack. Thank you dainty wrists!

 Day 2: The cutest-miniest-sweetest little baby roller ball of Cranberry Sugar.. cuticle oil.. At least I am assuming it is cuticle oil. That is what I used it as.. if it is a roller ball of perfume.. well.. at least my mitts will smell amazing! The scent is really sweet, which I love. It reminds me of making Kool-Aid as a child. Good times!

Day 3: a bead to join the bracelet - it is an intense abstract design with a multitude of colours. I like it. On to the bracelet is goes!

Day 4: Cat.. tattoos? I believe.. and a bad ass ring! I really, really, reaaaaalllllly like the ring!!

 Day 5: Um.. wait, what!? If Sammy starts doing nail polish as well, I might have to pick up a third job. Or move in to a cardboard box and just use all my savings on living costs to support her store. This is a gorgeous red holo polish. Lord have mercy!


And here we have all the goodies together - week one.. not too shabby! The ring! The polish! That cuticle oil.. love it all! Cannot wait to see what next week brings - yay!

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.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

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…

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
