America's Suitehearts

Well, it isn't just THAT song, it is the South Rakkas Remix. A random fact, I always promised my sister that if they (being Fall Out Boy) ever came even remotely close to Saskatoon, I would get us concert tickets. On August 1 we will see them in concert, and we don't even have to travel as they are coming HERE! Yay! Anyways, on with the nail stuff eh.

As I have mentioned in a few posts, I have been taking a lot of shifts within the dishpit at work (I kind of like doing dishes.. weirdo I know) but I do them with nail polish on most of the time. Sometimes it stays on, other times I can peel it off no big deal. I figured this had to do with the yellowing of my nails, but the same thing is happening to my sister. We were not impressed considering we use base coat and everything.. One of our coworkers figured it was because we take off our polish, we repaint with something else. That is moreso true about my sister, I usually wait a day or two if I have no work/nothing important to do.

SO! I see this package sitting on the table on Saturday night..

But I didn't ask her about it until last night.. So she saw I wasn't wearing any nail polish and grabbed my index finger on my left hand..

I was pretty stunned, and my dad happened to be in the room and was pretty impressed as well! I couldn't stop touching the nail or looking at it.. It almost felt like wearing a gel nail.. The pink circle shows the buffed nail.. I circled the yellow spots in green.. So then I sat there and worked on the rest of my nails..

I know I still have a bit of yellowing.. But this was amazing to me! I told her if we like this system for in between time, I will pay for the refill kit. I am not going to lie, I am MAJORLY impressed.
The kit also includes a cuticle cream, which is good for me. As anyone that has glanced at some of my photos, you will see that I am not too nice to them. I never had the nail biting habit, but I'm a nail picker.. I used to pick and pull at my nails, cuticles and side of the nails until I would draw blood. I don't do it as often anymore, but I notice that when I am stressed out or working a lot, I am really mean to my nails. Hopefully starting this whole repair deal will work!
I will have to keep updates on how this kit works!!
Well, time to get ready for work. Nice managing shift for the next week and bit - YAY!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!! Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you! I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit. Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this! I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed. Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time! The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are! Thi

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!
