Post 100 (Pic Heavy-ish)

My 100th post.. I spose it isn't the most impressive milestone, but I am still pretty happy about it!!

All I really have to post about is all the goodies I have acquired lately. And by goodies, I mean polishes!!


I bought these gems before I went away for surgery.. Actually a week or two before.. I just had them hidden away in a bag.. Until now! The photo (from l to r) is OPI Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees Suede, OPI Manicure/Pedicure Papaya Pineapple Scrub (this smells amazing! I used this before I went away for surgery - cannot wait to use it again..) & a backup of CG Strong Adhesion Base Coat (seriously, I love this bade coat!!!)


I snagged these two bad boys from London Drugs last week.. Notice something with the bottle of OPI Alpine Snow? Right at the 'O', the serial number has been filed away. I *almost* put this back, but I was in desperate need for another (yes, another, this is bottle 4..) bottle.. BUT! The main reason for going to LD was to get Seche Vite  as it is the only store in my city that seems to carry that beautiful stuff. Yeah, that is my third bottle. Technically I am working on bottle 1 and 2, but it will never hurt to have another backup.. Right?


Last, but not least, is my TD order. It showed up on Friday - YAY! 2/4 deliveries of my recent online shopping spree are here - glad this was one of them!! From l to r we have: Orly Viridian Vinyl, Orly Purple Pleather, CG Ingrid, CG First Class Ticket, CG Midnight Mission, CC High Society, CC Warhol, CC Mrs. Robinson & CC Twiggie (not pictured is the large bottle of lotion I also ordered)


And this is what my nails currently look like. I had about 30 mins to do my nails before running out and doing errands.. So of course I had to attempt to do something to my nails. I couldn't resist Twiggie's calls!! I am none to pleased with my mani-action, but that is ok! It was just something to cover my nails for a day or three.

I will also post up what WOULD have been my PHD challenge entry had I remembered to actually try to somehow photograph them. I am sad that I couldn't figure out a way - I kind of adore them. PLUS they made me make a FRANKEN POLISH!! I will probably get that post ready for Monday or something.

For now, I have to finish off this 1/2c of Peanut Butter Chocolate Explosion protein drink (even with this bad boy, my protein intake for the day will be too low.. GRR!! I don't want my hair to fall out!!) and then most likely pass out with my book. I am eh so sleepy lately!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!

  • jaljen - Thankies! I am glad you agree (:
  • Tierney - He is my adorable little fellow! He is so ridiculous now.. We discovered he LOVES sunflower seeds, so.. I would give him one to shell and while he was working on that one, I would shell another for him.. I bought a HUGE unsalted shelled bag last night.. He basically runs to his bars anytime someone comes down and begs for a sunflower seed!!
  • Niki* - Thankies! I love him!! And the nails aren't too shabby either (:
  • Pretty - Thank yoooou (:

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!
