Rose Comforter

Hey everyone!

My nails right now totally make me think of a B&B and what I hope they would either have as their comforter/bedspread or wallpaper. Strangely enough, I love it.

I feel this photo doesn't quite do it justice, but all of my other snapshots sucked, so this will have to do!


I also have to apologize for my cuticles. I have been doing a bunch of baking, cleaning and dishes lately. Despite slathering in cuticle oil and lotion every night, they still look like that! Grr! I figure the cold weather doesn't help things much either.

I know my roses are not the greatest, but for my first attempt, I am quite pleased.

I chuckled quite a bit over them this afternoon. There I was, clutching an xbox controller, playing UFC, career mode with my awesome figher, with super girly nails. Sigh.


Here is what was used: CGs Re-Fresh Mint & Lemon Fizz, Konad Special Nail Polish in White, OPI Shorts Story, CG White Out & Brucci Roberta's Green Garden. Also, I used Konad image plate m79 and a dotting tool.

Dotting tool sent to me from Born Pretty Store for review.

I really wanted to either do a full crackle nail mani OR use my new Essie Little Brown dress.. But for some reason I just had to do this.

I did want to use December as a month to just showcase Christmas themed manis, but I really couldn't be bothered. Which is strange. I think I will have Christmas-y nails on Christmas and that is all..

I hope everyone is having an terrific Thursday! See you soon (:






  • Jennifer Leigh - Thankies! It is so fun to use (:
  • shortwidenails - I haven't tried it on my own nails yet.. But I don't think it should be too hard to remove. I will let you know though - I mean, it cannot be as bad as glitter, right? These rhinestones are larger than the set I bought years ago, but I kind of like them.. If I am going to sport rhinestones, I don't want them to be subtle! ;p
  • KarenD - Oh yes, it is kind of a hard choice now.. Just do something with polish or add some goodies? I am not complaining though!!

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

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!

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
