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.

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!
