My Quick 11:45pm Shop Attack

I know.. No music title post.. Geez!!

 
Only because I just updated iTunes and need to restart before I do anything else.. And then I would be picking the song title manually and that is just not fair at all!!

 
Last night when I got off of work, my brother picked me up and was like 'We have to run to Shoppers'.. HEY! No problemo.. I love that place! So after my marathon shopping the other day and not picking up a single polish.. I of course went down the polish aisle of the store.. They still had their Insta-Dri polishes on for $3.. I nabbed two of them + a 60 Second Top Coat by Rimmel.. Thought I would give it a whirl..

 


 

 
Now, we know I am not one for swatching new polishes.. Plus I am already wearing my Russian Navy Unsuede-i-fied polish action. SO! I rigged something up.. And this was the best photo I could come up with..

 


 

 

 
Not the greatest.. But I tried! Both of these have 2 quick coats.. Green is my favourite colour, so I obviously love this one.. But it was Uptempo Plum that caught my eye at the store first.. Deep plum-purple with tiny light purple flecks? PERFECT!

 
Now on to what I am currently sporting..

 


 


 

 

 
I love this polish.. But I decided to add a top coat this time to totally change it up.. Not going to lie.. I am kind of in love with it. I got tons of compliments on it at work.. And I didn't even do a design this time! I think it is because it is all shimmery and gorgeous.

 
Whelp, time to stop procrastinating and actually do some cleaning up around here. 6 cages.. here I come!

 
Have a whimsical Wednesday all (:




  • gildedangel - Trust me, it was difficult! I did actually look at some polishes in certain places, but the prices are so weird at all these different shops. I would be like 'this is a terrible price!' next place would be even worse and so the day went on. Don't get me wrong, I honestly do not care about price too much, but why would I pay $11 for a drugstore polish.. Might just be me, heh!

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!
