Contest Winner

The lovely ladies over at Polish or Perish were holding an anniversary giveaway a couple of weeks ago.. I decided to add my name into the mix.. At the time there were 600+ entries.. Draw date comes and out of 873 names, mine was chosen.

I FREAKED OUT! I might have even fist pumped..

Anyways.. Last Friday (the 13th.. ooo!) a package showed up for moi.. And I'd like to share the contents with all of you..

Earlier today I posted a swatch photo using these beauties.. Minus the GREY polish of course. The brand is called 'Brucci' and I have never heard of them, but I love them. They apply nicely and are perfect with two coats! From L to R: Emmi & Olli Go Bananas, Sheri's Pistachio Creme, No Label, Gianna's "Rockin" Blue, Roberta's Green Garden and Alexandra's "Hot" Gray (it kills me to write grey with an a).

I loooove Sheri's Pistachio Creme polish. It makes me want to make pistachio cake.. Maybe I will surprise the family with that sometime this week!!

Here we have Denim Creme and Funky Frost

 These bad boys are: Steel Creme, Concrete Creme, Marble Creme and Mosaic Creme

 These are: Khaki Frost, Purple Rage and Blackened Teal. I am actually really excited to try out all three of these. So is my mom. Sigh.

These guys are all mattes.. They are: Matte Galaxy, Matte Blue, Matte Olive, Matte Plum and Matte Grape.

And now some solid randoms: Barielle Ultra Speed Top Coat, Essie Wicked, Essie Matte About You, Essie Show Me The Ring, OPI Thoroughly Modern Millie, OPI Mini? and Seche Vite Top Coat.

I usually do not put my name is for giveaways (or too many..) but I had to for this one. I really wanted Essie Wicked and Matte About You. The fact that I won is still surreal to me!!

Thank you x a million to the lovelies at Polish or Perish - you are all amazing!!

  • Kimberly - Fail indeed!! One day, when he is super wealthy, I am going to remind him of all the things I did/bought for him.. And that he wrecks my things. We'll see what happens! And thank you, Bennie is a gem for sure!!
  • shortnails - That would be amazing if they did have them!! I don't have one here (sadface!) and thank you.. Everyday is just another step in the right direction.. Or some other philosophical saying!!

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.
