31DC2016 - Day 29 - Inspired By The Supernatural

Hey everyone!

I cannot believe I have actually made it to this zone in the challenge.. usually I pack in the towel on the first day of the 'inspired by' zone. Yay me! I think I have successfully completed this once? Not sure - will look in to that.

So.

Supernatural.

I thought of a Ouija board.

Funny side story. When my sister and I were younger, we convinced our mom to let us buy the Ouija board - but she warned us not to let our dad know we had it. Or he would be.. displeased, and get rid of it. Which was always strange to me - as our dad is suuuuper easy going.

Anyways.

We bought the board. Had not even cracked it out of the box - but we had to hide it as our dad was about to get home from work. We waited a couple days to get back to our hiding spot to get the board out and try it. It was gone.

Our dad somehow 'sensed' the board, and immediately disposed of it.

Rude.

And hilarious.

Anyways.

The nails. I used two sources to help me. THIS youtube video and a photo.


 I know - mayhaps not the greatest attempt - but mayhaps with my Halloween nail arts coming up, I could always revisit. We shall see!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Color Club Nomadic In Nude
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today! See you all again tomorrow!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

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…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
