About Me




Name: Delainie Gloeden

DOB: 04.04.1986.

Where I call home: Saskatoon, SK, Canada

I don't really know when my love of nail art started.. I vaguely remember starting to want to do more "fun" designs when I was a touch younger, and saving up my babysitting money to buy those crackle polish.. because they were awesome!

Then, when I was in high school, I would paint my nails and sometimes do dots.. nothing major.. it must have really started while I was taking my youth care classes.. more dots and lines, etc. Then, a couple of years ago, I got in to more elaborate designs.. and it hasn't really stopped. I just really like the idea of having "fun" nails - whether it be just painted nails, glitter, full out designs, whatever. Life is too short to not polish your nails. Just saying!

The reason for this blog was to show off what I do (nail art) to a wider audience. I always got really great responses from those I know and from unknowns. I had been looking at photos for ideas and decided I should just start up a blog to have a place to store my own.

I am not personally a creative person. I usually cannot just think up an idea and execute it. I have to see a picture and copy the idea. That is how I have always been. Basically, if I don't have a plan to follow, I will fail.

I love make-up, nail polish, movies, reading, art, hockey and online gaming.
I happily work at a chiropractic clinic.. and most of the patients and my co-workers enjoy my nail art activity!

Some of my favourite things:

Food: I hate a lot of things, and like a lot of things.. but favourite.. ooohhh boy.. ummm.. I really like chicken - you can do so many things with it.. and spicy foods.. and strawberries.. and raspberries.. and pineapple! Oh, and broccoli. And cheese. See.. this could go on forever. And peanut butter - seriously, in a pinch (which I seem to get myself in often because I don't want to actually cook anything) - I just eat a spoonful of PB and my life is better.

Drinks: High quality H2O. I carry a bottle with me everywhere I go. And I love iced tea (Brisk) annnd Mind Over Matcha booster juice. I could survive off of these drinks for the rest of my life.

Movies: I love all movies. Specifically horror flicks. But as for a favourite? Yikes. Well, I can watch 'Pitch Perfect' at any point in time with no complaints. I love it! And the remake of 'The Hills Have Eyes'. And 'Copycat'. Notice how I can never give a simple answer?

TV: Law & Order: SVU, The Killing, Sons of Anarchy, Workaholics, The League, The Walking Dead.. I'm sure there might be a few more, but I always make sure these are PVR'ed and I believe I am caught up on all of them. Awe yeah!

Music: Awe geez. I listen to so many different genres and bands and artists.. ummm.. I dislike country. That makes it a touch easier. I love 80s music. 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' by Simple Minds might be my favourite song, ever. And I really like Fall Out Boy. And dubstep.

Games: Video or board? I like L4D & L4D2.. and The Sims.. and anything zombie related. I'm not great at console games, though I do have an xbox360.. but I'm great at N64 and game played via the computer.. and board games? Life.. and Cards Against Humanity.. because they are hilarious!

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…
