Slow Life

By Gizzly Bears (featuring Victoria Legend - at least on my version..) Yes, a soundtrack song. From 'New Moon'. I think it fits today kind of nicely. Slow, mellow, etc. Because, when I look out the window, it is gray, snowy, windy, rainy, disgusty.. Blah.


This is all I have to offer photo-wise for today. Nothing super great. Pretty basic actually.. I will try to do something more fun next time. The weather has been le suck, so I haven't been too amped up about anything lately. But, I do plan to have awesome nails for awhile after this.. I am working a bunch of shifts up front, so I want to have snazzy nails. That is the plan.. Now let's see if I can execute it.

I actually have to venture out into the storm today.. Although I just wanted to curl up with my book (The Girl Who Played With Fire), eat some Chinese food later (my sister's birthday supper choice, yum!), have some cake, and sleep. But nooo, the animals need some more sacks of food.. And I need a new headset. GRRR! When you cannot yell at incompetent gamers.. Things are not well! Anyways..

Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday!!

Okay, I don't see how you can say this is nothing super great. I think it looks awesome and really fun. I kind of want to try that with different colors.

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

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!

Splatter Floral Nails

Hey everyone! Last night, after I did these nails and when I went to bed - I was quite pleased with my nails. When I woke up this morning, though, I wasn't overly crazy about them. I thought of a few things I could change so that I would really like them.. I am very tempted to take how I want them to look and recreate them before work.. I might just have to do it. Anyways! Really, there is nothing wrong with them.. I just sort of find them.. boring? Ah well! I used: Lime Crime Milky Ways China Glaze White On White OPI My Favourite Ornament China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Sweet Hook OPI Mod About You Formula X For Sephora Infatuated Orly Liquid Vinyl China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I made the roses with a "main" colour and white, then I did the details with the "main" colour and black mixed together. Again, I don't dislike these bad boys.. I am just not amazed by them! Also.. did you
