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!!

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.
