Princess day! Inspired by Chalkboard Nails which is to say I wanted to do Princess Peach and hers were the best ones I could find to work with.


I started with a nude base, using one of the other new (old, on sale) Sephora X polishes I picked up a few weeks ago. This one is called Marvelous. While the color is very pretty, it is also incredibly sheer! If you have pretty nails and want to go for a simple french, this would be a great polish. However, my nails are a bit of a mess (read: stained) and it took 4 coats to reach the opacity you see here. It wasn’t even 100% opaque! I gave up anyway because my nails were getting thick.


I am not going to list all the polishes I used, partially because I don’t think it matters specifically, and partially because I’m not 100% sure on some of them!



Anyway, we have Toad (pinky), Princess Peach (ring), Mario (middle), Luigi (pointer), and a very sad looking Bowser (thumb) that we are going to ignore. The only Mario game I actually play is Mariokart, but I always play as Peach so this seems fair!


Hope you enjoyed! I should warn you…this ends the prompts I did even remotely well. I don’t even have anything for Thursday (inspired by your bag? Really? My purse is black. No thank you and I am tired of 31 days without break).

Nerdtastic Tuesday: Super Mushroom

It has been a while since I have done nerdy nails. Too many elegant things recently! Time for fun. And what is more fun than the speed-boost-giving super mushroom from mariokart? NOTHING!


I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this, but I have only actually played three video games (I have watched many, but not played many). Those three: portal 2, rock band, and mariokart. There is nothing on this planet that can make me curse and threaten to kill people more than mariokart. Except maybe my sister. But you get the idea.


The red super mushrooms bestow a speed boost during the race. And they are fun! At some point I will do “real” mario nails….but I did these on a Tuesday night so I needed something easy.
