Even More Goodies (Pic Heavy)

I thought receiving a package yesterday was rad.. But two days in a row!? YAY! Day brighteners to the max!!

I will just get right in to the photos because this post will be full of them..

I had to snap a quick photo of the opened box before I opened any of the boxes within.. Why? Because Kris used coloured tissue paper and I'm a sucker for coloured tissue paper! (I know.. I'm weird!)

In this photo we have Spa Gel Toe Separators and a CH-924 foot pumice.. I am actually quite enthralled with the idea of using the toe separators.. I have never used them before and it seems like fun!!

The Seche Secrets of the French Manicure set. Doesn't it looks awesome!? The kit includes: Seche Clear (base coat), Seche Porcelain ("A luxe nail lacquer designed to make your nail tips white while enhancing the natural nail color"), Seche Rose ("A luxe nail lacquer used to enhance the natural pigment of the nail bed") and of course, my favourite, Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.  A…

More Goodies

This ties in to my Contest Winner post..

I like waking up to a package with my name on it.. It always make the day seem so much better.. Then you get to the innards and it is much better than you could have hoped for!!



Super exciting!! I cannot wait to test them out.. In order, the plates are: m74, m75, m76, m77, m78, m79, m80, m81 and s10. I have to say the little bunny on s10 is making my heart happy and break all at the same time!

Now, question.. Which should I test out first? Colour combos.. Let me know what you would like to see and I will happily oblige!

ThRiSzHa - Thank you, I thought it was pretty great myself! It looks ten times worse (to me) right now.. Maybe I'll snap another photo for my next post.. And agreed, there will be no polish on that nail for a LONG time!!Amber - Yeah, I must admit it sort of seems like a surreal injury to me.. Yet every time I look at what is causing me pain, I can see it - so it did really happe…

Diagonal Zebra Mix

Hello everyone (:

I bring to you another look that I saw on WAH Nails. I really liked this particular look because it is simple, yet it grabs attention as if it were a more complicated design.

I have had a bunch of people grab my hands in the past few days (I have been wearing this for 6 days now).. I find friends and/or mother/daughter combos are the best.. They grab my hands and then hold them in the air to get others to come and look. Embarrassing, yet it is nice to get acknowledgment for the work you've done. Onwards to the photos..


I used OPI No Room For The Blues, OPI Dim Sum Plum & CG Liquid Leather for this.. I started out by painting on the blue.. I didn't let it dry fully because I thought there would be this rad mixed purple-y line once I added the purple, but it didn't happen.. oh well!! Then, using my nail art brush from that yellow, I painted on the zebra-esque lines. Super easy and super fun!

Ok, now, a few entries back, I think I said something about wa…

Suede Flowers

Just a quick post as I have to run out with the bro (Happy Birthday!!!) and exchange his new jeans.. AGAIN! I thought birthday gifts were supposed to be easy..

The other night I took to my twitter to ask for an idea on how to polish up thee old nails. Gingerkittyd said I should konad with matte polish over glossy polish.. Sounded amazing! But sadly a combination of things kept this look from happening. 1. My stamping skillz are not up to par 2. I just couldn't get anything to go well. Once I did have all my nails stamped, I hated it!! Not the idea, I just thought it looked sloppy (it was all my fault though!!)

So. Removed everything and started again. I didn't know what to do and I was too lazy to go grab a brush, so I used a pencil with my suede polish and made these flowery.. things?


I apologize for the chips. We went to my friends cabin for the weekend.. Of course I forgot to take the picture beforehand. Still, without a top coat, this actually held out fairly well.

My fav…

Contest Winner

The lovely ladies over at Polish or Perish were holding an anniversary giveaway a couple of weeks ago.. I decided to add my name into the mix.. At the time there were 600+ entries.. Draw date comes and out of 873 names, mine was chosen.

I FREAKED OUT! I might have even fist pumped..

Anyways.. Last Friday (the 13th.. ooo!) a package showed up for moi.. And I'd like to share the contents with all of you..

Earlier today I posted a swatch photo using these beauties.. Minus the GREY polish of course. The brand is called 'Brucci' and I have never heard of them, but I love them. They apply nicely and are perfect with two coats! From L to R: Emmi & Olli Go Bananas, Sheri's Pistachio Creme, No Label, Gianna's "Rockin" Blue, Roberta's Green Garden and Alexandra's "Hot" Gray (it kills me to write grey with an a).

I loooove Sheri's Pistachio Creme polish. It makes me want to make pistachio cake.. Maybe I will surprise the family with that som…

Pink and Pink

Just a somewhat quickie post.

I am starting to make myself get up at better times (I can go to bed before midnight and not wake up til 2:30pm the next day.. And that is giving you the earliest time I could wake up at). I am starting to actually be more beneficial to my body after surgery. Finally I am starting to get through my head all the changes that have already happened and will happen. Craziness. I am starting to snap out of my funk! Woo! Plus it has just been over a month now.. Time flies when you're not having fun as well!!

Side note.. The other night, my bro had some of his pals over.. They were drinking and wanted to snap some photos of, well, anyways.. They borrowed my camera. Now, my camera isn't high quality, but I didn't want to get a new camera til around Christmas time as that would be my gift to myself.. I may have to invest earlier than I thought. It doesn't focus like it used to.. You have to take the photo and cross your fingers that it isn't to…

Comic Talk

Hello everyone - looooong time no post. For that I do sincerely apologize! I have been doing so well after surgery that I figured that feeling of 'wellness' would just continue.

Wrong.

I hit a WALL this past.. Well, 10ish days. It has not been fun. All this amazing colour that I had (seriously, my eyes and cheeks and skin were all AMAZING looking, even without makeup) now I sort of look like a walking corpse. I would say zombie, but zombie are rad and I am not lately. I actually scared myself the other evening. I was washing my face and I swear my eyes were colourless and lifeless. I could go on and on about how terrible I have been feeling AND looking, but I'm here to discuss that.

A few posts back, Li Lian mentioned the website http://wah-nails.com/, so of course I had to check it out. They do some really fun nail art.. Most of which I find somewhat simple to replicate. I of course had to test out at least one of their designs asap.


Sorry the photo suuuucks! I really did…
