St. Patrick's Day Nails 2016

Hey everyone!

So, today is St. Patrick's Day - and it is one of my rad friends' birthday as well - but, this day is notorious for, well, drinking mostly, BUT! It is also just an overload of my favourite colour, green, and gold.. and rainbow.. leprechauns.. you know, all that good stuff.. but I am going to focus on the green and gold aspect!

I did a lime green base, some "dry brush" technique with two other shades of green, and then gold dots/blobs.. I know I saw an IG pic the other day with white, blue, purple, and gold - but of course I didn't bring my phone to my pc here - I will make the match on my IG post and then update on here after. Sometimes I am just SO smart.

Anyways, here all the nails.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze Grass Is Lime Greener
  • Essie Off Tropic
  • China Glaze Treble Maker
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament
  • Dotting Tool
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today!

See you 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.

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
