Peachy Pink

I finally got around to using my CG Peachy Keen polish.. It has been sitting in my untried drawer for a few moments in time..

I started off by painting my nails with it and just figured I would decide what to do after painting it on.. And omigosh! What a colour!! I didn't think it would be so.. bright? I figured it would be a touch more brilliant than CG II, but it is totally different! I actually kind of love this polish..

Once it was dry-ish (I am not a patient person when it comes to drying time on polish), I decided try and gradient pinks.. I used this Essence gem that I got in the Elfster Secret Santa exchange.. And I notice it when I look at my nails, but it was very faint, so instead of work on the gradient effect, I just grabbed a sponge and sponged on OPI Elephantastic Pink. I actually really enjoy this subtle yet in-yo-face look! It is perfect for summer.. Now if we could only begin summer here..


Now a question.. I do believe I have reached a plateau with my cuticle cream. It just doesn't seem to be doing as well as it once did.. Here in lies the question.. What cuticle creams do you use/like/have heard good things about.. I have read quite a bit on the Lush cuticle cream.. And according to friends we actually have one here situated in a mall.. I could venture out and get it.. But of course I want to check with the polish crowd first. Lemme know!

I hope everyone is having a terrific Thursday and will continue to have a wonderful week!!

  • Tierney - Thankies doll! And I am seriously not worried about when it gets sent out.. I just know that one of these days I will have it in my possession and all will be well! I picked up a 'thing' or two for you, so hopefully I will get those gems shipped out asap as well!!
  • ThRiSzHa - Thank you (: you flatterer you (: Actually, this works out well because I always love the creations you post!!
  • shortnails - Actually, I stuck fake nails on to my nails.. Only because I knew I would be using large amounts of glitter and I did not want to cry during removal - heh! BUT! Awhile back, on a blog somewhere out there.. They posted about the 'foil method' for removing glitter polishes. You put your polish remover on cotton balls, apply said cotton balls to the nail, then wrap the fingertip in tin foil and let sit for a couple of minutes. Afterwards, you just take off the tinfoil and the polish should basically all be removed. I did use this method and it seriously works! I think there were two nails that I had to 'scrub' for a swipe or two. So much better then taking an hour to remove manually!!

I haven't tried the Lush Lemony Flutter but I use Orly Cuticle Therapy Creme and I find it to be quite awesome myself. Love that Peachy Keen, such a pretty color, nice sponging!

what sponge did you use? it looks really gradient like. When I sponge stuff on its like blob...not even close to gradient looking. maybe my sponge does not have enough holes.

Okay..I won't lie ..i'm cheap. I heard about the cotton ball/ aluminum foil technique but I have never used it because I'm afraid that it uses way too much polish remover and 10 cotton balls, one of each finger. Maybe I need to cut the cotton balls in half. The cotton balls have to be really drenched right?

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!
