Striped Nails

Hello everyone!

I bring you my striped nails that I did the other day.. The idea is actually from an image that I made a few years back as a background for a webpage.. I was clicking on my picture folder and just before I could head over to my nail art inspiration video, I saw that image and thought it was perfect for some nail art!


For this look I used: OPI Alpine Snow, CG Liquid Leather, OPI Who The Shrek Are You?, Quirius Lucy Diamond & CG Heli-Yum.

ALSO.. If any of you are interested.. I made a VIDEO to go along with this post. Yeah, I finally made a video! I had my awesome brother edit it.. I think I am going to need his help for a bit longer. He uses vegas as an editor.. He made it look so easy and I know it really isn't that easy!

Anyways, please, check out the video and lemme know what you think!!

Also, since I can do videos now.. Is there a look I have posted up before that you want to see done as a tutorial? Let me know and I will comply!!

I hope everyone has an awesome Friday night and a great weekend!!

  • KarenD - Yay! Glad someone agrees with me! Yeah.. Hopefully the next time I do swatching, I will have some better photos to share (:
  • shortwidenails - I am surprised that you haven't found a supplier for CG in Vancouver.. That just blows my mind!! BUT! I am glad to make you want to get Party Hearty!! I even checked at Chatters today for ya - but of course they are all sold out! Grr! I hope you can still buy off of ebay - it will be well worth it!! I have a mini bottle of MAAH.. I might just have to consider it for a New Years mani! I also might have to convince her.. We'll see! Haha, and my brother as well (: - I agree about it on the yellow.. I thought it would be a fun idea, but it is really, well, blah!

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!

This is actually …

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!!
I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica, SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica. They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!!
One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop.. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well.
I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop:

Created out of the needs and desires of T.…

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
