The Dotted Ribbon

Sorry, just have time for a quick post. Feels like forever since I used a song title for my post. AND answered comments. I promise (for real this time!) that I will catch up on all the stuff next time.

I was super pumped to show off this look, but upon closer inspection of the pictures (and after getting a couple hours of sleep instead of being up for 40 some hours..) I am disappointed by all the black dot 'dragging'. I really need a new black nail art pen, BUT, the brand that I like hasn't been restocked in a loooong time at CosmoProf, makes me extremely worried. Plus I cannot find them online. Scary!!

Anyways, another mani that looks better in real life (and from a bit of a distance) I still like it. Every time I glance down, I am reminded of something but can never bring to words what it is that I am reminded of. Grr!

The base colour is OPI Dim Sum Plum, which, of course, didn't photograph as it should. It is truly an amazing shade. I cannot believe I waited so long…

Blog Award

I have actually been given this award twice now.. Once from the lovely Tierney at Tier's Thoughts and by Li Lian at nails nails nails.. I figured I should actually acknowledge these awards so I don't look like a chump!!

Now, with this award you are supposed to:

-Post the award on your blog
-Link the person(s) that has (have) given you the award
-Pass the award to 15 other blogs you have discovered

Here is the problem when I get tagged/awarded/etc, I never know exactly who to send it off to as any blog that I include in my blog roll is a blog I love. I have stumbled across many a-blogs and just exited the page after reading a few entries, only because I am not really interested. So, to all of the lovely people that I follow, I love your blog!! I read all new entries (I apologize, I am not the best commenter :\), but I try! Thank you all for doing what you do, I appreciate it.

My bank account? Not so much (:

Fairy Dust Swatches Plus Some Extras

Juli (aka shortnails) at Shortwidenails asked me to do some swatching using CG Fairy Dust. Of course I was more than happy to oblige her request.

She asked to see it over OPI Purple With A Purpose, a black (I used CG Liquid Leather) and CG OMG. As an added bonus, I will show it over OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender as that is what I am currently sporting.. I know, no nail art, craziness!! I am lazy and my allergies are killing me!!

For the following photos, the first nails are just with two coats of the base colour and one coat of Fairy Dust, the second nails are two coats of the base colour and two coats of Fairy Dust

So, as you can see, it is a multi-coloured sparkly dust.. And for once my sub-par photo skills are actually a benefit.. I especially love the last photo, unfocused multi-coloured glory at its finest!

Now on to my nails.. The colour is Lucky Lucky Lavender, but seriously, I don't see too much of the lavender-y (aka purple, in my mind) side, I see a stellar barbie pink. Like I …

Haulage

Yes, a quickie 'haul' post. My co-worker that is also a hairdresser loaned me her card for CosmoProf, so of course I took advantage of that!

I didn't take as much as I wanted (which is probably a good thing..) But I did get a few things.. Take a look!

Couple of empty bottles (Only .75!! How could I not?!) Because I have been wanting to try frankening.. I would have bought more, but they only had the 2 (sadface). Then CG Fairy Dust, which I have seen a few times layered over polishes (over black looks UH-MAY-ZING!), CG In The Lime Light (Neon).. Um, it is green! And neon, perfect! And they only had CG Matte Magic in mini bottles, so I figured I would try it out as well.  OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender.. A super pretty lavender.. Love the colour, hate the scent.. So nailpolish is perfect for that! OPI Need Sunglasses? looks so gross in all the photos I took. It looks like a soupy orange-tinged mess, but looking at it right now as I post, it looks like a brilliant yellow!! And OPI Sh…

Somebody To Love

By Leighton Meester featuring Robin Thicke.. This is another song I got a hold of quite some time ago, but was never overly interested in.. Until I gave it a full listening to and realized she is speaking French in the song.. Playing this song and 'Psycho Killer' by The Talking Heads back to back? Win!

Here is the mani I worked on last night (at 1am.. an insomniac that suffers from boredom yay!) Annnd.. Because I was feeling extra generous (and I was pretty happy how it was going after painting on black lines) I started snapping photos.. Enjoy!

Hazel

By Junior Boys.. I have seriously listened to this song 28 times within the last week, I cannot get enough of it! I bought it off of iTunes quite awhile back, but never really listened to it. Then, about a week ago, I finally gave it a fair listen to and absolutely love it!! I don't even know what it is about the tune.. Usually though, once he says 'hazel', I restart the song.. And it isn't said until the end.. Weird how the title actually is the most disappointed part of the song.. heh.

Ok, so, before I show you the mani I am currently sporting, I must say this.. This actually looks approximately 8 million times better in real life. The photos showcase my mistakes more than my own eyes do.. I mean, yes, I notice the lines that my silly black silkline polish left.. But some of the other mistakes that I notice in the photo are harder to notice with the human eye. I just had to get that off my chest.. Now.. Onwards!

A couple of things.. First, Kae should really be getting…

Just Quickly

Sorry I haven't been posting too often here.. I don't really have a legitimate excuse, other than the fact I am a super procrastinator. I have an out of the city doctors' appointment on Wednesday, and all the stats I have been keeping on myself are not complete. Ugh. I had planned to start (heh) them on Friday, and work on them after work during the weekend, but of course that never works out. Now I am in full panic mode!

I just need to sit down and finish it all up, should take an hour or three, just, when can I take that hour or three? Now.. After I update here of course!! And them maybe after I che- see how this happens?!

Anyways! On to the slightly more fun stuff..


I wasn't too impressed with this, except for the fact that it was SUPER bright. Lucky for my it chipped the next day and I had a good enough reason to take it all off - yay!

I slapped something else on, but didn't get a photo before I had to remove it. I have big plans for either tonight or tomorro…

Dee's March Favourites

I have seen a bunch of youtube videos about ‘enter month here’ favourites, so I decided that I kind of want to just incorporate that idea to this blog.. Now, I know that this is my polish endeavours, BUT! My ‘enter month here’ favourites will be about anything, be it nail polish, make up, books, etc – just whatever I was loving for the past month. I am going to try to keep up with it for a bit.. And if anyone else is interested in writing this type of entry, go for it! I will love reading them just as much I do watching them! Here goes. Dee’s March Favourites CG Lemon Fizz.. Every time I go to do my nails, I seem to constantly be reaching for that gem, then I have to remind myself that I have other colours to use and then choose something else. For me, it is thus far, my favourite yellow! CoverGirl Clean Makeup foundation for normal skin (technically I could use oily and/or sensitive, but I went with ‘normal’, and it is perfect!) – I instantly love…

Happy Birthday To ME!!

Technically it is on Sunday, April 4th (aka Easter Sunday.. overshadowed by a holiday.. blast!) But no big deal, I am still super pumped!!

This evening, during supper, my sister was like 'want to open your gift from me?' - My family has never been one to wait to give gifts to each other..

I was SUPER SUPER SUPER EXCITED when I removed the tissue paper and there in front of me was..

I know, it isn't nail polish, which would have been amazing as well, but no.. It is something that I have wanted for such a long time!! I have my ipod 30G classic.. But I really wanted an ipod touch.. oh gosh, she is so pretty!! I am doing this now before I have to go setup and play with this gem!! OH! And metallic green comfort fit ibuds! woo! The buds they send with the ipod products hurt my tragus piercing.. Anyways!!

These were my nails from a couple of days ago.. Just something easy to get through my managing shifts. This was after three days of work.. Including dishes and laundry and all tha…
