Bridget Jones's Diary Inspired Nails

Actually, it was the second film, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. I was watching this movie the other night and passed out with about 40ish minutes left. Of course I could not leave it unfinished.. So I watched from about that point onwards the next afternoon.

In one of the scenes (where Bridget finds out she will be working with Daniel on his TV show...) she is wearing a light blue blouse with either black or brown dots and some peachy-pink dots. I instantly knew I wanted to paint that on my nails.



I was rather annoyed that during the painting process - well, just before I was getting ready to apply top coat.. That there was some cotton fluff attached to a dot on my index finger. Of course I grabbed it and of course it would drag across the brown and ruin my night. Ohhh well!!

I still really loved how this turned out! I also really liked all the colours together!!

I used: OPI What's With The Cattitude?, Essie Little Brown Dress, Color Club Pardon My French (I think) and a dotting tool which was provided by Born Pretty.

I should really make little labels for my Color Club polishes.. They came in a set and are not labeled on the bottle. Kind of annoying as I also have to look back to see what they are called!!

Well, I am off to go paint my nails with the franken polish I made for the contest over at More Nail Polish - if you haven't seen it, go check it out! You have until June 2nd to enter.. Plus, as this is technically my third (I basically made the same colour on my first and second tries.. Anyways..) - it was nice to have a reason to do some frankening!

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday.. I have been cleaning. all. day!


  • Enigma - Yay! I am glad I am not the only one (:

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!
