Psycho Killer *Pic Heavyish*

By The Talking Heads. This is a band that my dad loves, and I didn't mind it when he listened to their albums, but this song is hands down my fave! There are just songs that I enjoy for certain elements. The element that I like in this song? They sing a bit in FRENCH! Maybe that is why I love 'Bad Romance' so much.. I digress.

Before I show you what I am currently sporting on my fingernails, I must show you all a gift I (ok, my sister and I) received. Two of our co-workers just got back from Hawaii, and they picked up this set for us..




Pretty eh? They are called 'Island Girl: Hawaii' and they are lovely! Sadly the green polish appears to be the only one with a label (it is called 'Aloha Girl') - I might have to check out the website listed on the side to see if I can find some more colour names! I love the names listed on polish - sometimes that is half the fun!! I will try to maybe get some swatching done on the fake nails I still have lying around the place.

SO! Here was my quick design.. My sis and I were watching movies last night, and I decided that having my nails naked for 2+ days was long enough. I saw this photo before I logged off:



I didn't do mine exactly the same.. Hence the inspiration.. Anyways..









My sister says it looks like creepy trees.. Which I like. Because creepy = good to me! I think I will be changing my nails either tomorrow (err.. later today..) or Saturday afternoon at the latest. I need something new for NEW MOON! That is correct.. I am a Twi-Hard, I'll admit it. My favourite friend and I are going on Saturday night to see it.. Supper first, then some sweet vampire/wolf movie time. I am pro-Team Edward by the by.

Anyways! Hope everyone had a terrific Thursday and are prepared to have a fabulous Friday!

OH! And I just wanted to send out a mondo-huge THANKIES to Tuli for sending me an email and letting me know that my comments weren't working. You're a doll!!

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!
