LadyQueen Water Decals - Feathers

Hey everyone!

Today I have some water decal nail art to share with you!

LadyQueen got in touch with me again, and asked if I would be interested in picking out some water decals, and giving them a go - which of course I said 'yes' to!

I got 3 sets (you'll see the others later on..) - and decided to use the dark purple feathers first. (you can scope out the set HERE).

I started off with a base of OPI You're Such a Budapest, and then applied the decals.

My only complaint..

They all go on backwards.

Like, after you soak them in some water, and apply to your nail, and sponge the backside, you take away the paper backing, and you are left with an upside down decal - but thankfully I just quickly manipulate them with tweezers, grab hold, flip them, then put them in place! It is an extra step, and one you have to be fairly quick about - but they do work. I will have to see if the others do that as well. Because, if I am going to use something else to do nail art (ie: decals, stickers, vinyls, etc) I expect it to cut down on the extra work.. otherwise I'd rather just do it all by hand, honestly.


The plus side.. they do look really nice - though they do not last. This was after 13 hours of wear time, and if you look at my index finger, some of the decal is already gone.

For the extra work in having you flip every decal over, it isn't really worth it wear-time-wise. But, if I had some event to go to, where I only wanted my nail art to last for that particular event, I would rock these again.

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI You're Such a Budpest
  • LadyQueen Decals
  • Tweezers
  • Sponge
  • H2O
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

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

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
