Boredom Overcome By Party Hearty

Hello everyone!

I have a day off today.. And quickly became very bored. I started working on making a light box.. And then I sliced myself and didn't want to do a perfect job anymore (heh).

Then, as I was tending to my newly self inflicted wound, I noticed my nails were bare.. So I then picked out nine random bottles.. Well, not really random.. But it'll look that way!

In this lineup we have: CG OMG, Liquid Leather, Jolly Holly & Midnight Kiss; Essie Mesmerize & Lolipop (side note: I just noticed that Essie 'Lollipop' is just 1 l.. Geez louise! I always was using deux l's..); OPI Alpine Snow & Sapphire In The Snow; BYS Yellow Sunshine.

Now, you're probably thinking that is the strangest polishes together.. And you're right. I do some weird combos, but I don't think I would be able to do something with all of these gems.. Oh right, the post title. You caught me. They are all going to be meeting up with..

This guy, CG Party Hearty.

I am going to use this time to apologize for some of the photos. The light box is not perfected.. I like some of the photos and others are really yellowed out! I promise to work on this so that my photos can look more visually appealing! I also didn't do any cleanup on my nails - sorry x 2!!




I have also misplaced my 1 coat'er photos.. Grr! Once I find them I will edit this post.. ANYWAYS! The photos containing Party Hearty are with two coats. Most of the colours didn't surprise me with how awesome they looked with PH.. The one that really made me happy?

Essie Mesmerize with 2 coats of PH. I really didn't think the blue would look that great with red and green sparkles.. But, I proved myself wrong.

This post is actually a bit of a bust.. And for that I do apologize! Maybe I will post something up tomorrow with better photos..

BUT! What I can say is that I absolutely love PH! It is going to be perfect for holiday manis.. And I would especially recommend it if you're a person that just enjoys wearing polish without adding nail art.. As this adds that little extra without being too over the top! LOVE!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday! I am going to go do some more work on the light box.. And paint my nails (:

  • shortwidenails - Oh, she has been painting/doing nail art for about as long as I have.. So technically, she is already one of us (: Seriously, I think you should get it - it is gorrrgeous!! My dress was just a dark plum colour.. So I figured since it was plain, I could dress it up with shoes (cheetah print flats) and of course my nails.. And surprisingly enough, it all worked out well together! Also something strange.. My sister and I were both 'dressed up' and yet we didn't take a single photo. I was in a dress and she in a skirt.. I thought the world might end, but, luckily, it didn't!

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!
