Yellow and Gold Bracelet

What do these 3 random colours have in common?



Other than the fact that they don’t really go together?

They are what make up the next manicure I am going to show you all!!



I got the idea from a bracelet I saw in an InStyle magazine from 2008? Maybe 2009? It could have even been 2010.. I am not entirely sure. I know I have mentioned my ‘inspiration folder’ within my computer, but what I have also started is a ‘real life’ inspiration folder – it now is a complete page within the folder! Yay! Means more tutorials.

Wait.. Tutorials? Oh right! I filmed how I went about making this manicure. I hope you’ll watch and enjoy – and maybe test it out for yourself? I would love to see the results; maybe with some other colours? Anything!

While I am speaking of video tutorials, Li Lian of shortwidenails had asked about my roses manicure I did HERE.. I actually filmed a video quite awhile back, but I, of course, didn’t upload from the camera properly and deleted everything.. I got a chance to re-film about a week ago and just found the time to do a slight edit and get it done. You can check that out HERE.

3 videos now.. 2011 is already looking promising for video filming. Any looks that I have done in the past that you would want to see as a video tutorial? I would be happy to oblige in any type of request. You can leave me a comment here on the blog or toss me an e-mail!

I hope you all had an amazing day!!

**I haven't answered any comments in the last little while, so I will just address them all right now!!**
  • Trincess - You really should! I think you would do an amazing remake of that mani! Maybe next Christmastime?!
  • DesertNails8 - Thank you! I agree - I like it in any light conditions! I have already recreated that look on my mother.. The sister is asking me to do it for her as well! Seems to be a crowd pleaser!!
  • shortwidenails - Glad you're alive! It has been quiet without you!! I think that is actually my favourite as well.. Or Old Wallpaper.. I like both of them for different reasons. I imagine it would - I was looking at Dorothy Who? the other day.. But grabbed CG Atlantis instead!
  • Doo - I am glad you like that one - it is really fun and easy to do.. I think I will have to mess around with other colour combos! Awe, thanks. I can honestly say I enjoyed painting each and every one of them! 
  • shortwidenails - Haha! I love that! Glitter polish is a real life saver! I think I now remember why I have never used them again.. Give it another 6 or so months and I'll try them again.. Only to be disappointed! I am excited to test out Atlantis.. Just have to think of something to do with it.

Glow bracelets and glow necklaces are considered novelty party products. They are referred to as glow sticks necklaces and bracelets sometimes because they are in essence special size glow sticks.

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

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!

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
