Rad AF Nails

Hey everyone!

Ok, I like to toss the word 'rad' out there on the daily.. but these nails are legitimately rad. That is the only word that can be used to describe them.

THESE nails are inspired by PamelaPomelo and then, once I was finished.. I was like 'hmm.. no.. these need something...' so I went with black outlines. I wanted to add dots, so I sent my sister a photo and said 'dots or am I done?' and she said I was done. I agreed. I am glad I decided to go with both of our instincts because greatness ensued.


I know I am saying this rather early, but I predict these nails to be in my favourites for 2015. I love them sososososo much!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze Electric Pineapple
  • China Glaze Rich & Famous
  • China Glaze Sweet Hook
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Little Brush
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Ugh. Honestly. I need to end the post here.. because I want to take off my polish right now and toss these bad boys back on. Must. Stay. Strong!

Have a solid Monday, and I will see you all again soon!!

The Finest Neons You Have

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you a recreation that I just adore. I tend to ask my sister (a lot) for inspiration on nail art, and she always delivers at least 2 photos. This go was 3, the other 2 I plan to do at some point - but the neon nails just spoke to me at the time.

I tried to do some tracking down, but it kept leading me to dead links, and there is no watermarking - if anyone knows who did THESE NAILS, tell me so I can tag them appropriately.


Look at the neon-ness! I just freaking love it! Especially that orange.. siiiigh.. I feel like these will be necessary again in the summer - maybe even on my toes!!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Orly Glowstick
  • Orly Neon Heat
  • Orly Tropical Pop
  • Dotting Tool
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Hope you are all having a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Mint + Pink Leopard Print

Hey everyone!

Yes, I know, another leopard print mani. But.. buuuuuut.. leopard print is so easy and eye appealing! Plus, this combo.. I look at these photos and I am like 'daaaamn.. I did a really good job'. I snagged this via my pinterest board - original post HERE by Paulina's Passions.


OBSESSED. HEART EYES. DEAD.

Anyways.. I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI That's Hula-rious!
  • OPI Suzy Shops & Island Hops
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Dotting Tool
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

So completely obsessed with these nails. I mean.. the colour combo.. the excellence of the mix going on.. I die. I love.

Thanks for stopping by -- see you again soon!

Neutral Leopard + Chevron Prints

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you THIS mani that was posted by Nailstorming, and that one of my irl friends tagged me in to recreate. So, her wish - my command.. yup.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI My Vampire Is Buff
  • Color Club High Society
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Dotting Tool
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I love this. Simple and effective.. though, after doing freehand chevron for the.. whatever-th time, I decided to order some nail vinyls. They should be around soon. I look forward to that becoming a smidge easier.

Hope you have a rad day - see you again soon!

St. Patrick's Day Nails 2015

Hey everyone!

Just thought I would do a quick post for today.. being that it is St. Patrick's Day. This day is rad for many reasons, but two that I especially like are: it is one of my best pal's birthday, and this day has a parade of green - and green (all shades) is my favourite colour.

Tiffany, from Nail Polish Canada, was kind enough to send me an image plate for this particular day - so I figured I would put it to good use as two of the images I quite liked! The image plate is BM-H05.


I used:
  • Color Club Twiggie 
  • Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • China Glaze Pine-ing For Glitter
  • Essence Nail Art Glitter
  • BM-H05
  • Toothpicks

Does anyone notice my weak attempt at water marbling? I tossed some gold glitters on there to try to mask it a bit.. which looks rad. In hindsight, I should have gone with a more vibrant green glitter, or just have done a gold accent nails - but I still quite like the whole thing overall.

Have a gnarly St. Patty's Day -- see you all again soon!!

Hey everyone!

With all the editing and "preparing" I was doing yesterday.. I forgot to set-up my posts for this week. Fail? Well. At least I caught it before Monday was over.. or I would have ruined this sort-of-schedule I have going currently.

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze License & Registration Pls
  • Essie Turquoise & Caicos
  • Formula X For Sephora Meteoric
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today! See you all again soon!!
