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!

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!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
