Autumnal Chevron Drip Nails

Hey everyone!

Ok. First. I have to talk about this amazing polish colour. A few days ago, I died over MyNailsDid's post of Barry M Mustard.. and I instantly wanted that polish.. or a mustard polish. It had to happen. She offered to try and hunt down a bottle whilst on her vacation (which I almost took her up on) - but then she mentioned that she thought Color Club Je Ne Sais Quoi should be similar.

An order to nailpolishcanada.com went in almost immediately.


I am obsessed with this colour. Does it really compliment my skintone? Not sure. Do I care? No.

With that order, I did snag some of the Essie Fall collection.. so.. why not put them all to use? And follow some nails by ChalkBoardNails?


 I. LOVE. THESE!

They basically scream autumn.. while also screaming heinous, but wearable sweater, with a touch of badassery because of the drips. I should honestly get a job describing photos.

These took a bit of time as the chevron is just done by hand.. but hey.. worth it!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Color Club Je Ne Sais Quoi
  • Essie Udon Know Me
  • Essie Kimono-Over
  • Essie Maki Me Happy
  • OPI My Vampire Is Buff
  • Orly Glitz
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

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).

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…
