My Cuticles Are Terrifying

I am currently sporting OPI Alpine Snow with some OPI Black Shatter over top.. Which makes up my favourite combo (black and white!!) - BUT - I was just looking at the photos I took.. And.. My cuticles are extremely scary.

I mentioned I have been really sick.. When I get sick (I assume this happens with a lot of people), my skin gets really dry.. Despite my best efforts (high H2O intake, lotions, etc) my skin is extremely dry. Especially my cuticles and surrounding nail area. I should just leave that alone.. Right? Wrong. I am a picker. I usually pick and peel my skin until I bleed. I don't even notice sometimes until I use the washroom or something and have to wash my hands.. Then, voila! Blood. Bad Dee!!

I will give you a photo of something I wore last week. My mother and I were meeting up with a friend of hers (and her friend's daughter) to see a movie. I really do not like going out and not having my nails painted.. So I quickly applied this to my nails. I know I have an image with this look somewhere in my inspiration folder. Anyways..


I useddddd OPI A Grape Fit and CG Liquid Leather. And see? My cuticles and that weren't too bad.. You know what.. Because I like to run this here blog on honesty.. And want all of you to see when I make mistakes as well.. I will show you how scary my nails are. Both. Hands.

Remember, you were warned.

You can still close the page..

No? Well, ok.. Here are my scary hands as of right now.. (I seriously snapped the photos 10mins ago..)







Yikes! I really do apologize.. And I hope I don't lose a ton of followers for posting these ugly photos! Le sigh.

In other news.. I returned home today.. And there is a little package waiting for moi. I believe it is nail gems.. So I will play with those some time.. AND! My best friend has given me 3 awesome nail art ideas lately. She BBMs me them.. And I quite like them! I am hoping that by next week I will actually have the energy to start doing some fun designs again. Seriously, this cold will be the death of me.

I should probably sneak off to bed asap here. I have work.. I have no idea how I am going to pull that off.. A bit of shopping AND a movie to attend tomorrow. I am going to med up and pass out! Have a fantastic night everyone - and a terrific weekend (:



  • shortwidenails - They actually look like they took a lot of time and patience, when really, they didn't! I had all the colours on a piece of paper and just went around, dabbed some polish on to my sponge and immediately on to my nails. If I thought a colour was too heavy or there wasn't enough of another, I just got more of the polish and dabbed it on! I think I am going to do these again some time soon - maybe with some different colours (:
  • Halifax - I know hey? Maybe one day we'll get some equality with the polish companies OR some amazing online shop will open that is Canadian and won't charge double for the polish alone. Ahh dreams - so nice, aren't they?
  • Chantal - It is one of the worst feelings.. I agree with you there!!

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!
