Girly Bloody Nails

Hey everyone!

So, my sister tagged me in a photo on IG earlier and requested that I do those nails.. which was perfect timing as I have this mustard coloured sweater to wear for Thankskilling supper tonight.. and I had mustard-y nails (that post will be up probably tomorrow..) ..I know there was a purpose of this story. Anyways.

THIS was the image she tagged me in, then it took me HERE and eventually HERE.

So.. here is my take.


Two things I would change upon looking at the images:

1. Do more of the rose technique that I like to use when I do floral nails. There just isn't enough definition - especially on the thumb where it is more visible, &
2. Use a red that I would normally use for the splatter - I feel this one left a pink cast on some of the nails when I applied top coat. Ah well.

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI Alpine Snow
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Essie Madison Ave-hue
  • Essie Minimilistic
  • OPI Gargantuan Green Grape
  • OPI Cinnamon Sweet
  • 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.
