Dainty Roses

Hey everyone!

I just finished up my nails for today - and immediately wanted to share them.

I picked up a bottle of Formula X Dainty yesterday and really wanted to put it to use - but didn't know what I wanted to do with it. Then I remembered these water decals from LadyQueen and it was settled.



I also decided to re-shape my nails back to be more almond-y.. such a good decision!

I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Formula X Dainty
Rose Water Decals from LadyQueen (scope them HERE)
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I actually had a very easy time using these decals. The last set I used from LadyQueen applied upside down/backwards (so inside of having the image show up top, it would show the white backing, which I had to quickly flip before they settled on to my nail.. I expected these to do the same) - but no, super easy to apply. Just make sure that you apply them exactly as you want them to sit. These gems are unforgiving! They settle in suuuper quick and you cannot manipulate them.

I had pictured them being smaller, which, I could have cut out singular roses and applied them that way - I was going to do extra dots on the nails, but I just applied these in full, and I love it!

Also, I wanted to show a comparison shot of Dainty to White Matter to show that Dainty isn't just a white polish.. where White Matter is a perfect stark white, you can clearly see that Dainty is a tinge warmer. It isn't so in-your-face whiteness. I love it - and the name is perfect for it.


So.. what I am saying is that you do, in fact, need both.

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).

Party In The Hills

Hey everyone!

Phewwww!

After all the danger, excellence, and excitement from the 31 Day Challenge, I am not going to lie, I am a little burnt out. Top that off with just.. a rough life-patch, well, it just leaves this nail art enthusiast less-than enthused.

I did do a couple of swatch photos for some polish that I had been admiring from afar, so I will share those. And I do have a couple more coming my way. But.

Despite having naked nails at work today, I did paint a full set.. but.. you won't see those for awhile. I am.. working. On something. I mean, I am sure it is guessable, but hey. Act surprised.

A few weeks back, I spotted some swatches of Orly Party In The Hills, and not only is it gorgeous, but it reminds me of this polish that a patient wears - and I always mention it.. and it also reminds me of The Weeknd. I am obsessed. It is a thing. His little sassy neck thing in the video for Starboy - I die.

Anyways.

This.. polish.. is.. amazing!

I slapped on a coat of my favourite…
