Renegade

By Styx. This is probably one of my favourite tunes of all time. I am not entirely sure why.. But it is!

Yesterday I had painted my nails purple ala OPI A Grape Fit! And then added black stars on each nail.. Then went off to a hockey game with my lovely mitts on.. When I took them off? The stars were taking bites (seriously) out of the lining in my mitts. I was not impressed. Although I loved how it looked.. I think it would be more suitable for summer as the little stars won't try to nom on everything!!

After I removed the look (sorry, I didn't even snap a photo :\) I decided that I should paint my nails with one of my new polishes.. Sooo.. Grey seemed like a good colour choice to me. Kind of fits my mood as of late. ORLY Mirror, Mirror was selected.. But me being me.. I couldn't just leave my nails as polish without some sort of embellishment..

I went through my nail art folder.. It is huuuuge!! And found this image:




I loved the little floral details.. Reminded me of Old Wallpaper.. So.. Old Wallpaper was born. I also decided to try using acrylic paint and a paintbrush for this.. And I have to say, I absolutely loved this method! I think I will have to buy a set of mini acrylic paints just for my nail art purposes!!

Here are the photos.. I even included a shot of my right hand.. I have to say that using a paintbrush was really weird! I don't have a problem with a polish brush on nails or a paintbrush on canvas, but this one threw me off.. Some practice is needed..


 
 


Luckily I keep looking at my left hand, haha! Not entirely sure why, but I absolutely LOVE this look.

Well, thankies for stopping by - have a wonderful Wednesday!!




  • gildedangel - Thank you! I thought it would be kind of fun.
  • Velvet - Thank you.. I am slowly starting to feel not so terribad! And I think it looks pretty nice as well (:

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

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!! I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica , SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica . They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!! One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop .. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well. I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
