Pink Plaid

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you a look that I really like irl, but the photos make my lines seem more shake-y.. Oh well! I also notice via the photos that I am either going to have to thin out the remaining contents of my Seche Vite OR start a new bottle.. We shall see!



I used: OPI Mod About You, OPI Shorts Story, CG Liquid Leather, CG White Out* & OPI Ogre The Top Blue.

*For my pinky and ring finger, the white is actually the CG Crackle polish.. I thought it was so weird that my white polish globs on the paper were drying up incredibly fast.. Yeah.. Because they were crackle polish. Whoops!*

Yesterday I went out shopping with the sis and a pal for a bit.. I know I shouldn't really be out shopping as our Edmonton trip is on Friday.. But oh well! I ended up buying a new button up sweater that is sort of something that I wouldn't wear aka it isn't black or all grey.. a wealth of goodies from the Body Shop, some MAC makeup (I used up a gift card and tossed in a few extra dollhairs), oh, and, nail polish, of course. My new kids..


Here is CG Watermelon Rind & CG White Cap. I have mostly seen White Cap used as a layering polish, and I am not really one for just laying a polish and calling it quits, but I figure it could be rad over other polish on my toes.. Plus I'll probably play it up on the finger nails at some point in time!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!



  • FOREVER '92 - Thank you AND thank you! I think that is what drew it to me the most.. Zebra accent, how can one go wrong!?
  • Ash-Lilly - It always throws me right off.. I really dislike something, yet everyone else really likes/loves it. Makes me wonder about the manis that I personally love.. Maybe they look terrible? Who knows!
  • JQ - I think I might have to transform into a daily mani changer.. It has only happened the last 2 or 3 times, but I start to do something else, hate it, remove and start over.. And thank you!

White Cap is so great as a layering polish. Do something great with it so I can copy. ;o) I bet the plaid is awesome irl.

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!
