St. Patrick's Day Nails

This post is going mostly be about my St. Patrick's Day nails.. But I had to mix in some other random photos/stories as well.. Which I usually do.. Anyways, onwards to the post!


Since I am doing St. Patrick's Day themed nails, I obviously have to do something with my favourite colour: green. I personally love every shade you can throw at me.. Even the crazy 'puke' greens. I can never get enough green! For the look I did, I used: CC Twiggie and OPI Jade Is The New Black. I also used a dotting tool that was sent to me for review from Born Pretty.


And here they are. Hopefully you can tell that I TRIED to do clovers.. I don't hate these, but I don't really love them either.. And some look half decent.. Others.. Erm, not so much! But whatever, I tried!!

Oh, and, Happy Birthday to YD if you ever stumble across this post! Your date of birth is totally and completely fitting of a 'holiday' for you!!

The next thing I am going to talk about is the perfume I bought the other day.. Now, my sister, her friend, YD and myself are all heading to Edmonton next month (I am extremely excited!!) - so I have put off my order from Sephora as we're going to be going to one of their actual stores (they are also building one here.. just not sure when.. anyways!) - I really wanted THIS perfume.. Because I heard it smells like green apples, which I love. Then I remembered Shopper's Drug Mart and their perfume selections. Went there. So glad I did not order that perfume. I would have disappointed. It smells terrible to me!! I was stumbling around the rest of the fragrances slightly upset, then this caught my eye and I remember hearing that the Harajuku Lovers perfumes actually smelt really great.

And.. This one does! It smells extremely coconutty to me, which I love! Also, I am scent sensitive and this has yet to make me stuffy/coughy/sneezy/bitterly angry.. Perfumes always seemed like the ultimate girly thing to me.. And it just so happens that lately being extremely girly is exactly what I am going for. I just wanted to type about my happy findings with this perfume!!


Finally.. These little darlings showed up!! I am really pleased to have them all in my possession. I personally really like the crackled trend. I find it looks like you've done something really fun and interesting with your nails when you haven't really done anything at all aka they will be perfect for my lazy days.. When I don't want to do nail art!! Pictured are: Fault Line, Black Mesh, Crushed Candy, Lightning Bolt, Broken Hearted and Cracked Concrete.

My sister actually had CC Twiggie with Fault Line (purple) over top on the other day.. It looked amazing together!!

Anyways, that is all for today! I hope everyone has an amazing day! I imagine I will probably have another post up before the end of this week (:



  • Swaafie - Thank you! I know she used gold sequins, which I was going to do.. But I wanted something a bit different and more button-y!
  • Minty - Ooooh awesome idea! I totally accept the challenge! Expect a post about that soon!!
  • Tierney - I knew you would like them!! You should totally do something like that for one of the yacht club parties!!

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!
