Good morning lovelies & happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s week is off to a not too stressful start. Today I’m excited because I’m sharing a stunning nail art look that I’m really, really excited about using the beautiful shades from Sunday’s Swatch Sunday post.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Black Dahlia Lacquer Frozen Twilight (NailStuff.ca exclusive)
Black Dahlia Lacquer Winter Dusk (NailStuff.ca exclusive)
NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio — I used the thinnest one to make it easiest to create my drag marble
Look at the close up! I adore the look of Frozen Twilight against Winter Dusk.
I’m not going to lie — I was a bit nervous about how well these two shades were going to marble together. & quite honestly, this might be the most successful (& beautiful!) drag marble I’ve done in longer than I can remember. It sort of reminds me of when you find rocks that have geodes & crystals running through them.
It just turned out so pretty!
The jelly formula on Frozen Twilight being a bit on the thinner side meant it was also a lot easier to get the polishes swirling without things starting to dry too quickly. Nothing worse than trying to do a drag marble, & your polishes are drying as your trying to marble them! Then you get weird bald patches & have to start over. Ugh, the worst! But these two shades marbled together like a dream & I’m super happy with the end result.
What do you think about this drag marble featuring Frozen Twilight & Winter Dusk? Do you like how I paired these two shades together? Do you love the Autumn vibes that these shades are giving off? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below!

I’m kind of obsessed with how these turned out! They remind me a bit of jawbreakers, which marble nails can do. I like the neon colours popping against the white base. They turned out exactly how I imagined in my head & I’m so happy about it!
Drag marble nails are one of those looks which I always think are going to be so easy, but then surprise me with difficulty, haha. In this case, I had to swirl my four polishes in the while before things started to dry… & I had to work fast! But, you know, I think in the end it gave a really cool effect, & I got lots of compliments on the finished look which always makes my day.
If I had to pick a favourite nail? Probably my middle nail. I think my swirling turned out best on that nail for sure.
What do you think about this drag marble look? Are you a fan of the neons against the white base?

Hello lovelies & Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far. Here on the East Coast you can feel that Winter is quickly approaching — it was downright cold this morning. & I am not a girl who enjoys the cold! Especially because it absolutely wreaks havoc on my nails if I get busy, & forget to keep up with my nail care routine!
But enough about the cold, let’s concentrate on the good stuff: this icy smoosh design inspired by @grapefizznails! Anne is a fellow Canadian nail guru who creates the most stunning smoosh nails I’ve ever seen! Literally, it’s like witchcraft I swear. As soon as I saw her latest smoosh design I knew I needed to attempt a recreation ASAP.
How absolutely gorgeous did this turn out? Obviously nothing compared to the original, but I think I channeled my inspiration very well. It gives me a nice Fall Icy feel, which works well with these chilly November days. It was also pretty easy to create as well. Anne has some pretty awesome tutorials on her instagram on how she creates her smoosh marbles, as well as drip marbles & other nail art! So definitely check them out, especially if you want to recreate this look as well.
What do you think about this smooshy marble design? Do you think my recreation lived up to its inspiration? Would you wear this look on your nails as well? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! I hope everyone’s day is off to a lovely start. It’s super freezing here in Halifax today (-8 degrees BEFORE wind chill), & I am not a fan of the cold at all. But at least I got to start my day off with a sugar free caramel hazelnut soy latte.
Today’s nail art look was a random decision. I actually had originally planned on doing some floral nails, but it was late, I was tired, & I needed something faster. I haven’t done any marble nails in a while, especially a drab marble, so it felt like a good time to do them.
Please excuse my dry cuticles. No matter how much hand cream or cuticle oil I apply, I just can’t seem to keep up with this horrendously cold weather/hand sanitizer combo. Ugh. But, at least my nails look pretty!
& that’s what is most important, right?
Really loving the end result of this marbling. I always have a bit of trouble with the first few nails, but we always get it figured it. Also I love the purple & gold colour combination forever. I don’t think I could ever get tired of purple nail polish! Plus I don’t think I’ve ever worn this pretty purple I won from Beyond the Nail a few years ago (via Instagram). They actually moved bases to my city, so I’m excited to start purchasing more shades from them in the future because they make gorgeous polishes!
What do you think about this purple marble? What nail art are you planning for this month. We’ve got St Patrick’s Day & Easter at the beginning of next month, so lots of fun nail art to come!
Today I have a have nail art design to share with you. I’ve written before how I love playing around with different techniques, & lately I’ve been really into marbled nails & the many ways to create them. For today’s design, I created a marble design using polish & acetone–a technique that I’ve shown off before.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Nailtek 2
Top Coat: Seche Vive
China Glaze For Audrey
Quo by ORLY Feeling Free
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Black Heart
Xroma Polish & Vinyls Spiral Star
Obviously the easiest way to show you how to create this design was with a tutorial, so check out below!
I just really, really love this colour combination. There is something about turquoise & purple that goes so well together. Also why don’t I grab China Glaze For Audrey more often? It was my very first ever China Glaze shade, & now I remember why I fell in love with it. Just so pretty!
