Stepping Stone

By Duffy. Sigh.. The way she sings this song is just so pretty! I know some people say her voice is too annoying to listen to repeatedly, but I really like it..

Gah.. Who blogs at 4:10am? Stupid insomnia.

Sooo.. A girlie that I work with asked me when I was painting my nails again.. And I said within my few days off.. And I asked her what colours I should use.. She picked blue - wanted something with two shades of blue. Done.

I actually found a youtube video for this look.. But I changed it up a bit because I wanted it to be different. BUT! I did - you know what.. Scope the photo of what I used first:

P.S - Sorry I always snap photos before cleanup.. So yucky!!


The dots were made with a bobby pin! How neato is that? I kind of like youtube and all the little tips and tricks I find! I was going to order some of those dotting/marbelizing tools.. But for now this works. I am trying to be good and pay off some stuff before going back to school.. When all I want to do is spend money on nail polish and makeup.. and books! UGH! /endrant

Well.. I spose I should get some shut eye before shopping tomorrow.. err.. today!

Oh.. And just a quick snap of my make up from the evening.. I liked it.. I mean, considering I haven't been doing my make up too often anymore.. But anyways!

Love the manicure! Very cute and I love the blue. I love Duffy's voice. It's nice to hear a more unusual voice. I can't stand the Brittany type voices. Makes me want to scream! I don't like that genre of music anyway. I'm sure there are plenty of people up with you at 4AM. I'm up any time day or night. I'm glad I have a computer to fill my time.

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!
