Somebody To Love

By Leighton Meester featuring Robin Thicke.. This is another song I got a hold of quite some time ago, but was never overly interested in.. Until I gave it a full listening to and realized she is speaking French in the song.. Playing this song and 'Psycho Killer' by The Talking Heads back to back? Win!

Here is the mani I worked on last night (at 1am.. an insomniac that suffers from boredom yay!) Annnd.. Because I was feeling extra generous (and I was pretty happy how it was going after painting on black lines) I started snapping photos.. Enjoy!



  1. Paint base colour. I used 2 coats of OPI Alpine Snow.
  2. I globbed some CG Liquid Leather on to my index card, and using a nail art brush, I painted on black lines.
  3. Using OPI No Room For The Blues, I painted in the sections that are to be blue.
  4. Using SH Insta-Dri Lightning, I painted in the yellow sections.
  5. Using OPI A Shorts Story, I painted in the pink sections.
  6. Using OPI A Grape Fit, I painted in the purple sections.
  7. (Not Shown) I used some more CG Liquid Leather and went over the black lines.
Yesterday I found a wealth of nail art magazine downloads, so I am just stocked with pics to test out - which I look forward to sharing. Now, I LOVE THIS!  I seriously cannot stop looking at my finger nails.. And seriously, it only took maybe 45 minutes from start to finish. I already had a lady this morning basically calling me a liar and asking where I get my nails done. I mean, it isn't the best work ever, but it is something that I have done that I am incredibly pleased with. Now I can rest in happiness for a few days until my insomnia boredom strikes again!

Have a fabulous Friday everyone!!

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
