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!

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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.


I used:
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!
