Tutti Frutti Candy Cane Stripes

No work today, there's a blizzard going on and I'm stuck home, not even going to try to swim through the snow to my car, which is also snowed in deep.
I thought I would use the opportunity and practice my freehand lines, I bought a ton of nail art brushes from Borne Pretty Store a while ago and I've been dying to use them.

I take all my pictures in natural light and because of the gloomy weather the pics aren't that great today but I still want to show you guys my candy cane stripes.


Polishes used:
OPI - Kiss Me I'm Brazilian
Orly - Blue Collar
OPI - Red Hot Rio




Oh and thanks for all the lovely comments, I read every one and for the most part always answer back but I realized today that the new layout won't let me reply to your comments, I'm pretty bummed out by that and I probably have to change that soon and after all the work I put into this it feels crappy...
Just thought I'd let you know why I'm not answering your comments.

A VERY late Halloween post - Comic Book Nails and my Costume

There, I did it again, no blog post since October. I've been extremely busy with school, work and just life in general and I haven't been able to paint my nails so the state they're in right now isn't pretty.

I went as a comic book girl on Halloween and of course I had to do my nails as well.

Cobwebs and Spiders

This became a one big mess!! I'm investing in a better striping brush today because the ones I own are crap.
I started with the cobwebs and thought that it was going great, then I decide to do a spider, BIG fail.
I still decided to post it, you know, the good, the bad and the ugly ;)

When I get the new striping brushes I'm ordering from Born Pretty Store there will be a point two 
take on this one.

Peppermint Taffy

The boutique I work in is a little bit out of town and is right next to a shop called the Christmas Garden and as the name says its full of Christmas-y things and is open all year round. 
One of the things the Christmas garden is famous for here is their considerable variety of taffy caramels that come in many tastes and colors.
I try not to go in there so often because the caramels call to me, they tell me to eat them all (!!!!), but for rare special occasions when I want to treat myself  I go and buy a (mountain of them) a few I and always think to myself that they are perfect nail art inspiration and if I can contain myself and won't eat them all at once, I could do a series of taffy inspired nail art. What do you think? Good idea? 

But anyway, on to the nail art.
Here's the first one, peppermint taffy.


Polishes used:
OPI - Alpine Snow
Essie - Peach Daiquiri


I'm eating the caramel as I'm writing this, it's heavenly!

A Makeover!

As you can probably see if you follow my blog I gave it a makeover, I've been blogging now for over a year and thought it was time for a change. New layout, much simpler and cleaner than the standard blogger one I had but still with a splash of pink to it, and added social media buttons so it would be easier to follow or contact me. I can't say that I'm one hundred percent happy with it but it'll do for now.

Tell me what you think.

Leaves In The Snow

I had a feeling about this, everything is covered in snow, it's beautiful to see the snow cover the bright autumn colors and I wanted to try to interpret that on my nails.

Fall Is Almost Over

It started snowing today and I got a little melancholy over it, I'm not a snow person, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have fibromyalgia and snow means cold, cold means pain.
In my desperation over the snow I got out my fall color polishes and decided I needed to use them before winter starts for real.

This is what I came up with.
