Pink Cheetah Fail

One of these days I swear I am going to master cheetah-print-esque nails on myself. Sadly today is not that day.


Sooo, this will be my last entry for a little while.. I go in for surgery on Monday and will be in the hospital until Thursday.. Once I am released I get to travel back home (about 2 and a half hours) and prepare for my 6 week recovery. Bleh.

That is why I haven't been posting anything this week. I have just been relaxing, making sure I get everything in order for at least next week as I am not sure how everything will turn out.. I had to travel today and go for my pre-assessment appointment.. Went over things to expect AND I got to meet the man that will be making me go to sleep for a bit.. Pretty intense. Then had to have MORE blood work done.. So my hand will be nice and zombie like tomorrow.. And on top of all that.. I have been on my liquid surgery prep diet for 13 days now.. So I am excruciatingly tired.

Anyways, enough of my whining! I should go and rest. Last day of work tomorrow. Then traveling on Sunday.. Surgery at 8am on Monday.. phew!!

Oh.. And like I have been telling everyone that isn't immediate family or a very close friend: do not worry about the surgery I am having. Just know that it is happening.. I don't really wish to discuss a bunch o' details about it.. That is all!

I hope everyone has an amazing week!!

P.S - Since I was in Regina today.. I made a quick stop in at the Dollar Giant as Deez Nailz mentions these polishes by the brand Billie that she always gets there.. I was all pumped because her photos show these lovely displays of the polish.. Yeah.. The Dollar Giant in Regina looks like a bomb went off in that area. There was ONE single bottle of this milky coloured Billie polish.. But I didn't even bother with it as it was half empty. Sigh.

Your Comments Answered
  • KarenD - Thank you.. I figure that it lasts long enough for me to take photos and I don't have to mess around with glues.. Simplicity is usually my friend! And thank you.. They are not as good as the webs I did at Halloween, but I tried!!
  • Meeka - It was such a tough book to get through! I really did think it would be a quick and easy read as the book is quite small, but no. I write down all the books I read, as well as start and finish dates. I started it sometime in April and just finished it up now.. I mean.. I read other books in the mean time, I just lost serious interest in the book. She isn't a great writer to begin with, but that was basically garbage!! And YES! You got it! Haha, I love that you changed the lyrics in your mind as well (:
  • shortnails - You totally should.. It is beneficial when you just don't want to paint your own nails/you already have something done. And yes! HT IN CANADA! I had been told it wasn't coming here either, so I had a swap sort of set up.. But running across it in the store was like a dream! You'll have to keep your eyes open for that gem!! Well, the liquid diet is for my surgery prep.. It is just this protein drink.. It isn't horrible.. But what I wouldn't do for real food at this point in time I tell ya!!

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!
