Reptile

I have no idea why.. But lately I have been obsessed with snakeskin. No, I would never wear something snakeskin (real or fake.. I am pretty sure I wouldn't.. ah geez!) - but the idea of it seems rad..

I looked at some images online of snakeskin nails - most either used stickers, konad or mesh. I have 1/3, and none of my plates would give me the results I wanted.

Now. I didn't have mesh.. but I did have lace. I mostly wanted something to lay under where I was going to sponge for texture.. And this is the result..



I even included a snapshot of my rarely photographed right hand.. Looks fairly scary.. The only reason that photo is included is to show that the base colour I used was more prevalent on that hand - and I like that.

I used: OPIs Gargantuan Green Grape & Jade Is The New Black, CG Liquid Leather, Essie Sew Psyched & OPI Alpine Snow. I also used my trusty little brush for the black lines. Gargantuan Green Grape was my base (in case anyone was wondering..)

After my base was dry, I put lace over my fingernails and sponged on top of it.. I started by sponging one colour at a time.. But have more fun just mixing and matching afterward.. I am really not too sure if the awesomeness of these bad boys shows through via these photos, BUT, I am quite in like with them.

Sorry I disappeared for a bit there. Apparently working these extra shifts is sucking my will to live. That paired with the gym, my brother's hockey games and a sad attempt for a social life equal no time for blogging. Bad me, I know!

Hopefully sometime tomorrow.. Err.. Make that Saturday - I will post up some work I did on a friend's nail and some goodies I received in the mail today (and also a mini rant!)

I hope everyone has been having an amazing week and that is continues through to the weekend! I am off to get ready to go have a Jersey Shore/Movie Evening with a friend. Then it is back to work tomorrow.. bleh!!


  • Lacquer Ware For Tips and Toes - I know right? I am just glad you understand what I am talking about (:
  • Aurora's Nails - No, no it is not. Now I am the complete opposite. I could literally sleep at any given moment. Silly body - make up your mind! And thank you!!
  • Deez Nailz - I am always practicing that sweet, sweet zebra stripe.. Same goes for Cheetah print.. At least we all can do decent fakes, right? And I saw it! You did an amazing job!!

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
