Floral Nails featuring Madam Glam nail polish

Hello everyone!

Long time, no see. I know.

Let's see.. during my absence I: moved, transitioned into 'birthday season', and had something really horrible happen - but I don't want to really discuss that right now. Though, this horrible thing that happened is the reason behind me wanting to do nail art tonight..

PLUS! I wanted to share some awesome Madam Glam polish that was so kindly sent out to me. I must say, I am quite the fan of their formula.. and this one colour.. oh maaaaaan.

I was contacted by a rep from Madam Glam (not sure if I can use the name or not.. but, Hi A!) - and she asked if I was interested in trying out some more products. Duh, of course! She told me to select a couple shades, but I went a different route - I feel like I am constantly picking the same types of colours - so I asked her to choose for me.

She did good!

These were the polish I was sent:
Midnight
Vintage Girl
Heart Stone
Caribbean Island

 I also had two other new to me polish hanging out on my desk, asking to join in.. so.. shall we?


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Essie Madison Ave-hue
  • Madam Glam Vintage Girl
  • China Glaze Whip It Good
  • Madam Glam Midnight
  • Madam Glam Heart Stone
  • Madam Glam Caribbean Island
  • Dotting Tool
  • Little Brush
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Ok. Guys. Gals? It all works. I am actually extremely obsessed with the formula on these Madam Glam polish. Especially for nail art-ing it up. Sometimes I find that some polish is soooo runny, and it never seems to want to become 'tacky'. This stuff does become tacky SUPER QUICK, which at first worried me, because then usually it is a baby step from tacky-to-dry. No, this stayed workable the entire time. And usually I have to dab new polish down constantly. Start to finish for 'Vintage Girl' for the flowers.. 1 dot. For serious. Mind, blown! Love. And I was on their site and saw a polish called 'Cheeky Lemon'.. must.. refrain!

Have an amazing day - and I will start seeing you guys more regularly. I swear!

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).
