Rainbow French

Inspired by Sophy Robson. I have actually been thinking about doing this nail look for awhile - just from glancing at the photo of it.. Then I checked her website/blog last night and saw the tutorial was up!

I could have done more justice on this look, but of course I have to try and do my nails before I go out to run errands aka I rushed it!

Which isn't totally terribad.. I just need to have it on for today.. Tomorrow for work.. And if it can hold out until Thursday evening, I will be pleased! I don't have too much luck with longevity of 'French' manicures though..


The one thing I do really like about it? It screams SUMMER in your face!! I also think I need a lighter purple shade..

What was used - Rainbow Lineup picture order: Essie Lollipop, CG Breakin', Orly Sol Cabana, CG Lemon Fizz, OPI Green-Wich Village, OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, Essie Mesmerize, OPI What's With The Cattitude?, Opi Purple With A Purpose & OPI A Grape Fit!

I hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday and will have a wonderful week! I will try to post up again before I leave for the weekend.. A weekend off again? I feel faint..

Oh, and I suppose I should answer some comments.. It has been awhile!!

From My Plea:
  • shortnails - That pretty much shatters my heart!! It always seems to be the way to when it is something you really want!!

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
