The Cupcake Tutorial

Finally huh.. I posted my Readers Challenge a few posts back, and I actually got a challenge from Tier asking for cupcake nails. I posted a picture of what I had come up with, and she liked it, so onwards I went with the tutorial.

I had planned to do this awhile back, but work got all crazy.. Intestinal flu for all.. Good times (sarcasm!)

Anyways, I apologize for the picture quality. I am looking into constructing a light box to see if that will help. I think it should. And there was a slight mishap which I will explain once we arrive at that point.

 
  
  
  
  
  
Here is where the problem happened. I was allowing the nail some drying time before I would pop it onto my own nail to snap a photo.. My nail painting station/art station is in a very bad spot aka the floor.. My mother happened to stroll into my room.. AND buh-bye nail.. It got rolled over and smooshed and blah! So this was the original nail, which I do like better in one way. I went with a different method for the cupcake bottom this time around, I think I like the defined lines better.. But to each their own. 
I hope this helped in some way to show you how to possibly do cupcake nail. Another way I thought would be cute would be to have your nail a cupcake-y colour, then have a mini cupcake painted on to the nail.. Maybe I'll do that some day.. We'll see!!

I need to paint my own nails again soon here.. It has been.. 3 days of nakedness!! Scary! But I did some damage to my middle nail.. I will try and snap a photo, I have been filing this mother down, but you can still see that I snagged it on something, lifted the nail bed a bit. Blergh! Ahh well.. 

Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday!!

Your Comments... Answered!!

  • Tierney - I really like the toothpick method as well. I stayed far away from it due to intimidation, but am glad I finally gave it a whirl! Nice and easy!!
  • shortnails - Yay Canadian bloggers!! I am always happy to find them myself to find out where they possibly get their polishes from.. Because we do not have any major suppliers, and those that do carry the brands I want, basically commit murder on the pricing!!
  • Musicalhouses - Yay! I hope you do try it out, it is really a bunch of fun!
  • shortnails - How you explained it is pretty much exactly what I did. There are some videos on youtube that you can check out for methods and such - but I think you have it down already!!

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
