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!!

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

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
