Extra Large Update + Reader Challenge!

I will try to keep the type-age about day to day life to a minimum.. I have a bunch o'photos to share. Here goes..

Here are the nail decals I made to go towards my Valentine's Day mani, buuuut.. I used them and I love the idea of making your own, but I ended up taking off the look because I absolutely hated it. It was almost 11pm the night before (I had to work at 7:15am) but I needed to have my nails painted.. So..
These gems were born. I am suuuuper sorry I didn't get a better photo of these.. I finished at about 11:30 and went straight to bed. I was quite happy with my hearts (made them with my best pal, the bobby pin!)

These were the nails I sported just before my V-Day mani.. I wanted to try out that whole toothpick deal.. I actually really liked this and could not stop looking at my nails. I love when you do a look that you cannot stop looking at. I will do with different colours and such some other day.. Plus I think I might want a base colour first.. I'm thinking red with the black and white.. We'll see!!


My new children! I have actually had this for over 10 days!!!! and never posted them.. Horrible, I know! I am still trying to think of the perfect look for JITNB and DSP.. But I decided I just HAD to try For Audrey, so here is what happened..


I am a little ticked that I put on my top coat so quickly on my left hand (re: smudging on my thumbnail) but I wanted to return to the living room and watch the rest of the hockey game.. Urgh! Ahh well.. I posted my left and right hand because this is a look where I like the right hand better.. AND! I love For Audrey on black! So excellent! Speaking of For Audrey, I think this polish was overhyped for me. I was sooo pumped to finally get my mitts on it.. And I was thinking when I slapped on this polish that time would stand still.. It didn't. I like Mint Candy Apple more. Ahh well, I am still pumped to have this gem as a part of my collection!!


I did receive a challenge! It was from Tierney and it was to try and do cupcake nails. This is what I came up with.. Is this is sort of close to what you were thinking of, I will totally post a tutorial - let me know! If not, I have one other idea..

Phew! Update complete!!

I love the toothpick thing. I did that with christmas colors for one of the many holiday parties I went to. I really like the colors you did though, it looks really great.

I also love what you did with For Audrey, that looks AWESOME.

Finally, the cupcake nails are reallyreallyreally cool! I'm going to have to try. I wasn't really thinking of anything specific, I just think it would be cool to do my sisters nails like cupcakes since she loves them so much. A tutorial would be great if you could do one [:

another canadian!!!

I love finding canadian nail bloggers....as I am having difficulty finding certain polishes. I'm from vancouver and we do not have a sallys around here so new collections of nail polish are really hard for me to find.
I was wondering where did you get the mad hatter opi nail polish? I think I need it.

Wow all your nail looks are simply stunning! I especially love the toothpick one, at first I thought it looked weird, but now you've inspired me to give it a go!

did you just stripe on different nail polishes..let it dry a bit then when tacky slightly dry drag the nail polish through it? it's gorgeous

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!

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Gross Nails

Hey everyone! Not sure what else to call these.. other than gross.. these are the nails I imagine some sadistic swamp-dwelling mother of mutants to have.. yeah, that. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat OPI Coca-Cola Red China Glaze Cranberry Splash KL Polish Snickerdoodle OPI Suzi - The First Lady of Nails OPI My Vampire Is Buff Orly Liquid Vinyl Sponge Dotting Tool Fake Nails These were rather fun to make.. but dangerous! Who knew breaking up fake nails would make them so sharp! Fun! That is all for today! See you tomorrow!
