Quirius Swatches (Pic Heavy)

I am really not one for swatching polishes, but it was asked for, so I will do it! I am super sorry to have to show some really sloppy polish applying.. Please look past that fact - PLEASE! Anyways, on to the photos..

All of the pictures are clickable to be enlarged..

3 coats; a bit streaky and dried rubbery - a white base might be beneficial here!

3 coats; rubbery and you could see all the brush strokes..

2 coats; 1 more coat would have gotten rid of the brush strokes.

3 coats; could use more as at 3 coats it felt like only 1 - super quick drying time!

All very pretty! Maybe a drop or 2 of thinner would make them less 'rubbery'? Enjoy your time with your Uncle :)

Kae - I agree with them all being gorgeous.. and glitter is always a plus!!

Mary - I never thought of that.. I might have to try that.. But I notice that CG Shocking Pink (neon) goes on rubbery unless there is a white base first.. Not sure if that will change anything, but I will give thinner a shot!! And thanks, I am super excited to see him!!

gildedangel - Anytime!! Although maybe next time I will do a better job!!

Love all those polishes. Very pretty on you. My favorite is Arabian Nights. Love all that glitter. Have a wonderful time with your Uncle. My Uncle used to come visit twice a year and stayed with different familes. I really miss him, he died about 5 years ago. I think of him often.

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!
