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!

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.

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.
