Stripper

By Soho Dolls.. I am not entirely sure why I enjoy this song so much.. But I do! Maybe because the female singer is almost monotone? Who knows! Oh, plus it ties in to my love of soundtracks.. It is from Gossip Girl and it is on the OMFGG Vol. 1 album. If you're interested, check the music player off to the side there.

I am going to keep this post to a minimal.. I am currently trying to nurse myself back to health. I have some doozy of a cold. Bleh. BUT, I just wanted to say that my transdesign order arrived! Yay!


Essie: Lollipop & Mint Candy Apple; OPI You Don't Know Jacques! Suede; ORLY: Mirror, Mirror, Glam Rock, Iron Butterfly & Solid Gold; CG: Doll House & Solar Flare.

I know these are all polishes that have probably been posted to death, but I am quite pleased with my random order (:

My mom grabbed Doll House and was like 'this will be a expletive to get get off..' and then brushes some onto her thumbnail and 'oooooh'ed'. I am pumped to try them all out.. I did get to test out Mint Candy Apple. I had wanted to get away from showing you all my chipped nail polish action, but I decided to show you all this one because I had a nail accident at work and this happens to be the only picture that sort of shows it off..




Ok, I circled the 'accident' in pink there.. When I work managing shifts, you're in charge of laundry for that part of the shift (normally about 3 loads..) The housekeeping staff was a bit behind during the day, so I figured I would be super helpful and do an extra load or two.. WELL.. When I was putting rags and such into the washer, one of the snaps from the mop cloths grabbed a hold of my nail.. And tore it. It looks like a polish chip, but I am actually missing a chunk of nail. There is a definite ridge. It took a layer or three.. Not too impressed.

I am going to try filing it down and I am going to use CG Liquid Leather and CG Doll House and hide it for a few days. Sigh.






  • gildedangel - Thannnnk you.. I am looking forward to getting my mitts in on all of that stuff as well. Once I am feeling better and can actually sit and play I will be happy!!
  • Velvet - Thanks doll. She is still holding on. It makes me feel bad.. BUT! She is being enticed to eat with her favourites (bananas, Ritz crackers, apples and nibs). I am looking forward to getting to play with all of that stuff as well!!

Oh no! The break doesn't hurt too much does it? That mani is so pretty; it's a shame that it got ruined!

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

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!

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
