Nail Wheel Swatches

I finally figured out what to do with the package of nail wheels I bought..

I normally buy a few new (to me) nail polishes every month.. Sometimes I mention them, sometimes I don't. What I am really good at, however, is hiding them in my 'to try' drawer and totally forgetting about them..

Today, while out and about, I happened to stop in at Winners.. And right in the 'beauty' section was a set of Color Club polishes (the Pardon My French collection) - I have never seen them available there (although I have heard of them being around from time to time..) so I immediately snapped them up.. Even though I wasn't a HUGE fan of the shades. There was also a trio of e.l.f brand polishes.. I hummed and hawed over them, but ultimately ended up purchasing them.

Now, after being home and putting a swipe (or three) of the polish on the nail wheel.. I am extremely happy with my purchases.

Now on to the photos..

 The pretty CC polishes.. There is: Pardon My French, I Believe In Amour, Hot Couture, Oh Naturale, Turn The Other Chic, Take Me To Your Chateau and Si Vous Please.
 The e.l.f polishes.. They are: Moonlight, Royal Purple and Dark Navy. Also, I for some reason, took horrid photos of the wheel, so cut-off there is CC Pardon My French.
 Shown here is CC I Believe In Amour, Hot Couture and Oh Naturale.
 Shown here is CC Turn The Other Chic, Take Me To Your Chateau and Si Vous Please.

 And this is what I am currently sporting. It is CG Sea Spray. I knew I would probably be racing around running errands AND I really hate running around with naked nails.. I didn't do any designs/nail art because I knew I would probably be painting later.. But I do really like this colour and want to add a little something to it.. What should I do!?

Now time to address comments as I haven't done that in awhile. Sorry for the lack of nail art in this post.. I will try to get something else up by the end of the week - I promise!!

  • Steffie - Thank you.. I also like them.. A nice subtle approach.. Although I cannot complain about rainbow-in-your-face cheetah print either.. Hmm..
  • Vixxan - I do too!!
  • shortwidenails - Bah! I knew I was forgetting a photo of something in this post! I will definitely snap a photo of it.. I actually really hated the pen at first.. But after playing around with it (and remembering to go over the design a few times for coverage) I kind of like the pen. I should get it in white as well! They have a wealth of different colours available!

Oh my gosh Dee... I love the Hot Couture pink glitter polish. So cute! I only do solids because I'm too lazy and impatient to have my nails dry. At least if I reck it I can redo it because it's only one colour.

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

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

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!
