When Lightning Strikes

It is sometimes really unimpressive.. Sort of like the look I am about to post.

I saw this on a Sophy Robson post and I have been wanting to try it out forEVER! I decided to finally give it a go yesterday. I don't necessarily hate it, but I don't really like what I did either. I was really tempted to take it all off and do something different.. But.. Whatever. I decided to give it a day or two on my nails. I have a bunch of cleaning to do tomorrow, so it can come off at that point in time. PLUS, when I was scoping out her website, I saw something extremely amazing that I want to do now.. And it is really simple.. So you will probably get three posts out of me this week - hooray!

I also apologize about the somber post from yesterday. I just really felt the need to type out that experience. I am just stressed from that and something else that is going on in my life. A HUGE change. Should be interesting (:

Anyways! On to the nailage!


See that terribad lightning bolt.. It should be way thinner at the tip. Blergh! Ahh well!!


I used CG Liquid Leather, OPI Jade Is The New Black & SH Insta-Dri in Lightening.. That 'e' is really making me mad in their polish name.

Oh, and last night I did go out to the casino with the parents (yeah, I'm rad!).. Playing roulette with the dad.. It is pretty awesome. He puts up the money, and if we make a profit.. I get 25%.. I have played roulette 3 times now.. and have come out with $664.. Not that I am bragging, I just find it awesome because I am saving money like a beast because I have to take 6 weeks off from work starting mid-July.. And this is really, really, really going to help me out!! I know gambling isn't a great way to make money (believe me, it is a battle!) but it is nice when you take a chance and can walk out with some swagger!

OH! Also.. 100 followers! GUH?! I showed my brother last night that I had 99 followers, and he was pretty impressed. Now, my brother is like a youtube guru, so I told him that I had tried to make a video tutorial before for one of the manis I did, but of course the video didn't upload properly. He told me that if I ever want a video made up, he will happily help me out.. So expect a video tutorial soon! I think I am ready for that.. Even if it is just via photos for now (I will have to get a tripod for the camera or something before I can do a full out video!) I also think I will have to cap off a number so that I can collect goodies for a giveaway of sorts. Should be fun!!

Take care everyone.. I leave you with a photo of Bennie that I just took. He is finally starting to trust me again. Like I said, he has been acting weird.. Probably because he lost his mate/pal.. He was perched in my hand and his mitt made me laugh hysterically. Plus, he really wanted to steal my camera!

  • Tierney - Thank you doll! *hugs back* I basically feel like someone died.. I would probably have freaked out if the pet store sold me TWO pregnant guinea pigs!! I do, however, know what it is like to have a surprise pregnant animal. The one night my sister was going to feed the rabbits (we had two, a male and a female - separate cages) and we were all down in the basement chatting as a family.. And we see my sister slowly back away from Nixy (girls) cage.. She had five little babies nesting in there. Later we found out that my mother let the two out together and that they 'didn't DO anything'.. Surrre mom! We conned my parents into letting us keep them all. - What did you do with the babies? Did you get to keep them, a few of them, one of them or did you have to sell them/give them away? And thank you about the nails.. I adore polka dots as well!!
  • jaljen - Oh, I know the pain of their bites! Bennie (and Jet) were more like nibblers.. Then they learned that we were their pals so they never did bite us hard. The last few days though, Bennie has become a biter. He has stopped now and is beginning to perch on my hands. Last night he fell asleep cupped in my hands! I am always freaked about them escaping.. You turn away for a moment and they are gone! Little rascals! Yes, sorrow and joy about sums all pet ownership up! Thank you.. I liked the name as well, just didn't mean for it to be that sad!!
  • AggiePigeon - She really was.. It is still weird to say 'she'.. And I love the conversion to Jetta! Adorable.. If she was still here, I would totally use that!!

Oh man, that rabbit story made me laugh!
My stepdad at the time decided we could keep 2 of the babies, the other 4 were given to a pet store.

I love your nails! I want to try lightning bolts sometime.. Hm. That would be fun!

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!
