Diaster Nails That Turn Out Rad..

Hey everyone!

Technically I have a different mani that I should share with you all first - but I just finished these nails, and despite it going in a completely different direction then I had planned, I really like these.

My plan was to get really get patterns with the hairspray on the polish whilst in the water.. buuuut.. I am not sure if the mist wasn't fine enough, if my water was the right temp.. too many variables on what went wrong. My plan was to have these really acid-y-marble-y white, grey, and black nails. But. Since that was not happening, I decided to add hot pink in the mix - and ended up with these very.. grunge-y-abstract-y nails. Still a win!


I even included my left hand.. just to show how different they all are. My favourite is my thumb on my left hand.. but that right pinkie is giving me solid vibes as well. Right middle.. we need to have a chat.

I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
OPI Alpine Snow
Orly Mirror Mirror
OPI Black Onyx
Orly Neon Heat
Hair Spray
Water
Easy Peel Latex
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

So, you see, even a fail can turn into something rad!

Have a great day everyone -- see you 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).

This Is Halloween: Zombies

Hey everyone!

I am really, really, REALLY excited to share my gross zombie nails with you for this day of the Challenge. I viewed the awesome nails (and subsequent tutorial) from The Daily Nail - I knew immediately that I had to try that out at some point in time.. and zombie nails seemed like the perfect time to do so. I didn't get mine as squishy as hers.. so there wasn't as much wrinkling.. THEN I had a great idea.. I would legitimately press on my nails at lift polish and peel it and make it look gross. Totally worked to what I wanted.. Here goes..




I had to wrestle around with some dirt before snapping photos.. I feel like it added to the zombie effect.. I mean.. if I'm a zombie, washing my mitts is not something that I really care about anymore.

I love these gross gems! Actually, my sister has requested that I do these for her nails on Halloween. The only thing I don't really like.. Is my pinky. I added too much of the puke-y green.. maybe that nail is just overly…
