Here I Go Again

On my own!! Going down the only road I've ever known.. Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.. But I've made up my mind.. I ain't wasting no more time!! Umm.. Sorry.. This song is by Whitesnake and I seriously have had this song on repeat in my brain. I have been singing it like crazy too.. Last night while gaming I was singing it as well.. My brother had his mic on.. So the 'boys' laughed at me.. Good times!!

Sorry if I go off track a smidge in this post.. I had blood taken about an hour ago.. And I'm jittery from it! Sadly I have problematic veins in my arms aka they do not want people to take blood from them.. So they have to take from my hand.. And then I get the shakes and my hand becomes weak for the day.. And bruises.. Yay!

Yesterday I rushed through doing my nails because I was going to go out for supper and then shop for supplies with my friend before our weekend escape (T - 5 hours! Woo!) BUT! Thinking back, it was waaay better to do them yesterday because my hand will be too shakey today. What a thinker I am.. Either that or I can work my way out of any situation.. Anyways!!


First two photos are mine.. w/o and with flash. Third photo is the inspiration picture. I realize that it should be more of a teal colour and a darker purple in there.. But I switched it up a bit!!

I used: OPI What's With The Cattitude?, OPI Jade Is The New Black, Essie Mesmerize, OPI No Room For The Blues, OPI A Grape Fit! & CG Liquid Leather.

This was actually a lot of fun to do! I thought I would be getting all angry and do a shotty job, but I don't think it is too bad!!

I have so many "inspiration" photos from these nail art magazines, yet none of them just make me want to do my nails.. Hopefully this weekend away will recharge my copying skills and I'll be ready to start power-housing through these magazines!!

Also, I need a name for these gems! I usually name my photos before I slap them into MY nail folder.. Yet I have no witty/lame/fun name for these bad boys - any suggestions?

Anyways, I hope everyone has a RAD weekend! I will try to be doing the same (:

Are they a bit Art Deco? But I can't think of an amusing name.

I La-Lique them. (If Lalique is anything to do with Deco. I could google it, I suppose...)

I hate it when they say, "Collapsing veins." It sounds as if you are on the verge of death! It frightened me so much the first time I heard it.

Feel strong soon.

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

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!
