Talking In Your Sleep

By The Romantics.. My love of 80s music comes out again!

I have had some serious trouble with typing lately.. So if there are a ton of mistakes in this bad boy, I apologize in advance!!

So, my last "manicure" only made it through one day.. I traded to work in the dishpit and ruined two nails in the process. I actually meant to post this last night but was too tired and went to sleep instead!

Inspiration picture here: http://nailart4fun.ning.com/photo/2277784:Photo:86?context=latest

Theeeeen.. I was getting ready to watch a whole bunch of episodes of 'The Guild' and decided that it would be a great time to work on my nails.. And after I scoped that photo I was like 'I love polka dots'.. I own two pairs of shoes, 2 shirts, 1 camisole, 1 bag, my makeup kit and various other articles in black and white dots.. So why not do something like that on my nails? Plus I had a managing shift and it looks some what sophisticated (I am rational.. seeee?)

And this is my take:



Photobucket
Photobucket
Left Hand
Photobucket
Right Hand


I decided to take a photo of my left hand and my right hand to show that I do the same on both ;p Although trying to snap a photo of my right hand is pretty tough.. And that is with my awesome ambidextrous-ness!

OH! OHHHH! I would also like to point out that I actually made an effort of cleaning up around the nails before posting.. I know, please pick your jaws off of the ground!

I hope everyone had an awesome Monday and is ready for a super Tuesday!

*Side Note*: I forgot to snap a photo of my bobby pin, which is what I used to make the large dots. I am forever greatful to that youtube video for showing me the way in using a bobby pin as a perfect dotting tool! <33

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!
