Christmas Eve Nails

Hello Loves! I know, I know, it's almost New Year's Eve and I'm only just getting around to putting my Christmas Eve nails on the blog! Oh well, this Holiday has been busy & tiring! I'm still undecided as to what I want on my nails tomorrow, I'm not going anywhere fun/I have nothing festive to wear clothing-wise, but I want my nails to be as festive as possible!

I copied this look based on something I saw while scrolling through my popular page on Instagram. I don't remember the account name, since I didn't save the photo, so if you know who these belong to originally, let me know and I can credit them! I used Revlon Vixen, Konad Special White and a whole bunch of BM plates and some dotting tools!





I hope you all have a fantastic New Year's and I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for all of us! Thanks for reading <3

Belated Christmas Nails

Hi Loves and Happy Sunday! I'm sorry it's been awhile since I posted, I meant to post on Tuesday or Wednesday the nails I wore last Saturday (the 20th) for my family party, and then post what I wore on Christmas Eve later, but my family has been sick on and off for the last 2 weeks, and I started to think I was coming down with something too! In the end, I seemed to only have laryngitis and a bit of a chest cold, so I actually feel perfectly fine, but I can't speak and I haven't been hungry, which equals not eating, and therefore I've been pretty low energy!

Anyways, I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and you're starting to look forward to the new year!

These simple nails are what I wore to my family party on the 20th. I intially planned on matching whatever Christmas socks I wore (our theme was Crazy Christmas Socks) but I ended up running out of time, so I quickly threw this together. I used Essie Dressed to Kilt and stamped a snowflake from one of my BM plates, the put a rhinestone in the middle.

Merry Pinkmas

Happy Sunday Loves! I hope you're all having great day, I'm relaxing and watching Football after my extended family's annual Christmas party last night. It definitely wiped me out and it will be early to bed with me tonight!

I have done a "Pinkmas" manicure before and this year I felt a little uninspired, but I decided to cheer myself up with a seasonally appropriate pink manicure. My base is Essie Mod Square, and then I stamped various BM Christmas images in Konad special white, OPI Mod About You, Sally Hansen Silver Sweep and OPI You're a Pisa Work!

Christmas Ornaments

Hi Loves & Happy Friday Eve! Today was probably my last teaching day of 2014! It feel so weird to say that, but hopefully in the New Year I am teaching more! This is going to be a quick post because I'm about to fall asleep. I've been getting ready for my family holiday party on Saturday, about 50ish people come to my house every year!

I used the BM H03 plate again and stamped over China Glaze Emerald Sparkle with Sally Hansen Silver Sweep. I couldn't really capture it with my camera (and no sunlight) but Emerald Sparkle really glittered behind the design and it almost was like my nails were full of teeny glittering ornaments!





Have a great Friday everyone!

Christmas with Bundle Monster

Hi Loves, Happy Tuesday! I meant to post this yesterday but somehow I forgot! I can't believe we're so close to Christmas! It doesn't feel like it anymore, since we've now had about 4 days of rain after last weeks snowstorm, so it's just wet & damp here! I'm hoping over the next week we get a little bit of snow each day, so it doesn't overwhelm us, but so it starts to really feel like Christmas!

Nail Polish Canada is an awesome Canadian online polish retailer, and I've enjoyed using them over the past few years, they have everything from polish, to LED lights to treatments and stamping! They kindly sent me a Christmas plate, Bundle Monster H03 and it's one that I have been eyeing over the last few Christmases!

I had to try out the cute bells & mittens image, so I stamped it in China Glaze Passion over OPI Christmas Gone Plaid!




I hope you're all having a great week! Thanks for reading <3

Snowy Scene

Hi Loves & Happy Thursday! I painted these a few days ago when it was all green and my nails did not match the outdoors, but looks like the weather decided to take a hint. Eastern/Central Ontario got our first hit of snow and man, it slowed us down. I was supposed to be on my way to Windsor for a funeral, however, after getting up at 5am and leaving at 5:50 am, it took us more than 2 & 1/2 hours to get to the beginning of Scarborough, which normally takes 25 minutes, so we had to turn around and go back home, since we were going to miss the funeral/wake, and then we'd be sitting around in Windsor waiting until we could go home and miss coming back in Toronto afternoon rush hour! Oh well, at least the snow looks pretty when I'm not driving in it, and now I'm on the hunt for some good winter boots!

I tried a gradient, but I think I needed to be a bit heavier with my colours, since they were a bit washed out. I used Picture Polish Beige, and sponged on OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and Essie Marshmellow. You sadly can't see the white too much, but oh well. I stamped various snowflakes on with Sally Hansen Silver Sweep. I used 5 or 6 BM/Konad plates, so I'm not going to list them all!




I hope you're all having a great Friday Eve, if you're stuck in the snow, or going to get hit later tonight, stay safe!

Peppermint Nails

Hi Loves & Happy Tuesday! I can't believe we're already into the second week of December. Last week I was felled by my first cold in a while, and let me tell you, it's hit me hard. It's been sort of a cross between a nasty cold & the flu, but thankfully I'm on the mend and I can eat again, so I'll be better in no time!

One morning I couldn't sleep and I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw these nails by Chelsea of the Nail Network and I knew I had that exact plate and I got to work recreating them!

I used Essie Dressed to Kilt, konad special white polish and China Glaze Lighthouse. Candy Canes are my favourite part of the holidays (or anything peppermint related really) so I was happy with how these turned out!

OPI First Class Desires

Hi Loves! Happy Thursday, or Happy Friday Eve! I hope you're all having a great week! I'm going shopping with a friend tonight, and since I'm actually done all my Christmas shopping, it'll be nice to hang out and browse without having to find and cross items off a list!

When the OPI Gwen Stefani Holiday collection first came out, I knew I had to own some of the colours, and when I saw First Class Desires in person, I knew it would come home with me. It's a gorgeous dark purple with gold shimmer. I love it, and I plan on wearing it ALL. THE. TIME.




If you don't own this, well, what are you waiting for?! Go get it!

It's That Time of Year Again...

Hi Loves! Where have I been, am I right? I know it's been about 6 months since I've posted anything, but really more like 8 months since I was really posting. I have not been in the mood to post, or even paint my nails for awhile, which has been making me sad. However, Christmas is my favourite Holiday and ever since October I have been getting back into "seasonal" colours and manicures, and I've been itching to start decorating for Christmas since November 1st!

Since it's started to get cold here in Ontario, I've been buying and lusting after sweaters ( I am always cold) and I figured why not wear them on my nails. Karen from Nail Call posted a combination on twitter/IG and I had to recreate it.

I used China Glaze Passion, then stamped with Cult Nails Nevermore and Nail Craze plate 03. I cannot for the life of me get this stamped straight, but oh well!
