Rasta Zigzags...I think??

Hey sex-ba-boms! (20 points to you if you get that reference!) Do I seem a little bit more chirpy than last week?? Oh it is because I absolutely am! Between you and me, shark week came a knocking last week...yeah, so during that time life can seem to suck in general and I feel super emo! I even kinda had a small cry because I was a day or 2 late and my stomach was feeling uncomfortable. So I had this full on fight with myself that I don’t want to be pregnant but if I am I promise I won’t resent the baby and I’ll bring it up being awesome and geeky and and and...Needless to say, I wasn’t pregnant! Don’t get me wrong, I do want kids one day but I’m also smart enough to know me and my husband can’t afford it right now. Like not at all! So for now WHOOOO! I just wish my uterus would rather just send me a notification like “Hey! You’re not preggies! Look at you taking you birth control like a responsible little adult! Kudos dude! Totes laters till next month...hopefully! *high five*” 

So enough about that bit of TMI for today, let’s get to nails! I’ll be honest, there was absolutely no inspiration behind these nails and I just felt like using some brain searing neons and black. SO I DID EXACTLY THAT! #WINNING

I started out with a coat of Sinful Colors Snow Me White as my base color. When this was dry I added a coat of Nubar Palau Coral over one half of my index & pinky and China Glaze I’m With The Lifeguard over the other half. I then took a small piece that I tore off a makeup sponge and dapped WOW Nail Polish #393 down the middle. For my ring and middle finger I made a stamping decal using the above mentioned colors and Bundle Monster Stamping Plate BM-423.

Am I the only one feeling kind of a rasta vibe with this mani?? It is totally unintentional but hey, I’m not complaining! Also, my camera hates neons! Such a pity because this mani SCREAMED in real life AND I LOVED IT!

Lots of mad love...

Lazy Flowers FTW!

Hi there lovelies & globs! Have you ever had one of those days where you have all the meh’s in the world on your shoulder? I’m having one of those days. I just want to go find a corner and cry for no reason... And then look for actual reasons and cry some more! COS I’M THAT HARDCORE! Man, my teenage emo kid would’ve been proud. But alas, I’m an adult and I know there are people out there with actual reasons to cry and they just keep motoring on! I salute you, legit martyrs!

So I was dying to post today and really want to start posting more because I actually love blogging and I do have material lined up. I’m just, plainly said, LAZY! Lazy lazy lazy! But in an attempt to get me out of this funk I decided to post. So I give you this SUPER EASY random flower mani. Random and easy but made with love!

I started out by laying down 2 coats of China Glaze Some Like It Haute. For the flowers I simply dipped a dotting tool into a bit of China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, OPI If You Moust You Moust and Essence Blue Bubble Di Blue and placed flower patterned dots over the base. For the little dots inside the flowers I used WOW Nail Polish #393.

Straight forward and to the point! Don’t you wish life was like that?? Easy peasy as dipping dotting tools in pretty polish...just make sure your life’s base is a bad ass glitter bomb!

Lots of mad love...

Spazzy Stripes!

Hi there you sexy beasts! Raaaaawr! Why the rawr? Because it’s Friday! Do a sexy rawr to the person sitting next to you!!!...What’s that? The person next to you is a creep? Ok fine! Do a sexy agonising painful scream in their direction. Did they run away in terror?? YOU’RE WELCOOOOME! Also, can we take a minute and stare at my sexy new blog banner?? My Viking man has mad skills right?! I’ll do a sexy rawr to him any day. PS...If anyone is interested in using his mad design talents, give me a shout. He does this type of thing to make a bit of pocket money so the more design work, the more Burger King and polish he can buy me! #WINNING

So since it’s Friday and we’re all in a lazy easy mood, I decided to keep today’s nail art easy. No big explanations, no big hoorah of what inspired me and no diddly nonsense because let’s be honest, you’ve heard enough of that from me today.

I started by laying down 2 thick coats of China Glaze I’m With The Lifeguard as my base colour. When this was dry, I double stamped over the green using Bundle Monster plate BM-316, Sinful Colors Snow Me White and WOW Nail Polish #393

See? So easy it almost feels like cheating. Buuut besides my camera hating neons and making my skin tone look different in every picture, I liked how this came out. Simple but kinda funky!

Lots of crazy MAD love...

HAPPY NEW YEAR...A month late!

Hi lovelies! Heck, it’s February already! FEBRUARY AND IT'S ONLY MY FIRST POST FOR THE YEAR! For shame Thea! For shame...To be honest I have been mentally exhausted from about September last year. 2015 was not one of my greatest years. Beside marrying my best friend/my viking man and moving into our own place, it was a year I do not want over. But that being said, it was also the year I met 3 of my favourite people IRL! Shout out to my crazy loves, Michelle from Ordinary Misfit, Briget from Because I Can and Megan from Mama Zombie Mumbles. Hoping with my next holiday I can see them again. Ok, parts of 2015 sucked HARD! But the good moments were great!

So, on to 2016. I’m not one for resolutions because I know myself and when I make resolutions it’s like the universe is screaming at me “CHALLENGE ACCEPTED” and I end up failing. BUT I do have a few things blog wise that I want to do. I want to start posting more regularly, get more active with the blogs, social media and also challenge myself. I want to try new things or do things I consider gradient nails! :P I’ll also be launching posts that will fall on certain days that will push me to commit more and actually help me with new blog material. The one I am most excited about is Fangirl Fridays! Buuuut I can’t tell you too much about that right now because that would just give the fun away!

So...hopefully this year I can grow as a blogger and rise above my own expectations as a person. Sure I’m not a “New Year, New Me!” type of person but I can still be at the end of 2016 and say “HECK YEAH, WE RULED!”.

Lots of crazy mad love...

#31DC2015: Rainbow Nails aka Where the hell is my pot of gold??

Hi lovelies! Aaaah, how I want to be witty and funny tonight but alas, I am exhausted! So how about I do this post, go shower and then snuggle into my viking man's back? I like this idea!

#31DC2015: Rainbow Nails

This prompt slayed me! SLAYED! I really thought it was going to be easy but I swear every single idea I had just turned out disastrous! 3 manis later and on the brink of quitting, I settled for this.

I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. When this was dry, I went in with my fan brush and the following polishes to create my "rainbow": China Glaze Spontaneous, China Glaze Starboard, Nubar Competition Red, Tip Top Nail Chic Banana Split and Sinful Colors Endless Blue.

I'm actually kinda sad that I struggled so much with this prompt because I was really looking forward to it and I pondered over it for so long. But I also think that was my problem. I overthought it. But so we learn and grow!

Lots of mad love...
