Sea Spray

I could not handle even 24 hours of just a polish.. I had to add SOMETHING to it..

I couldn't figure out what.. Then, after going to the gym with a pal and watching RED, I decided to play 'The Biggest Loser' on kinect.. I kept watching the water in the background, which led to what I painted on to my nails..



I admit, I apparently had the shakes last night.. I couldn't do any type of lines to save my life! All I did was take a white polish (I believe I used CG White Out), I placed a dot in a different position on every nail, then followed the dot out with lines.. I do like this.. It is tres simple, but effective. Maybe next time I attempt it, I won't be so shaky!

Have an awesome Thursday everyone! I have some errands to run, followed by painting and putting a room back together.. Should be fun!!

I am on the hunt for OPI Black Shatter - Thanks for the tip Alyssa!! - I plan on having it in my possession by the end of the day!!

I think this is a very nice mani, even though it's simple! I think I'm going to do this at some point..

this is really cute. what brush did you use to do the design? a normal paint brush? how long is the bristles? I saw some brushes that had bristles that were 2 inchs long..that's a really long paint brush..not sure if I could control the design with such a long end.

im having the problem where I keep changing my polish. i mean my polish does'nt even last long enough for some kind of design
I love what you did here. Its fun and quirky.

Yes! Name-checked!!! Haha, hope you got the Black Shatter alright :)

PS- I was running some errands earlier today, and lo and behold- the confectionary across the street from your house had one sad, dusty bottle of SH Hidden Treasures tucked at the back of a display. I died from happiness.

This is really neat. I like the organic quality of it. Reminds me of elevation lines on topographical maps. <3

Gorgeous! I love it! And I can't believe you freehanded those lines so neatly!

I just found your blog, so decided to look at your previous posts. I really like this one, somehow it reminds of fingerprints - maybe I've watched to many episodes of CSI!

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

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!! I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica , SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica . They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!! One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop .. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well. I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

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
