Lauren Conrad Cheetah/Leopard Mani

Hello everyone!

I saved this photo to my inspiration folder a long, long time ago. As far as I remember, it was posted on a nail board somewhere and supposedly it was a twitpic via Lauren Conrad.. I'm not sure, but you can see it here.






For it, I used: SH Choco-Latte, CG: White Out & Liquid Leather. I also used a dotting tool that was provided to me from Born Pretty.

I was actually going to do something different as I painted my nails Saturday night and was working the Mother's Day brunch the next day.. I was thinking pastels and flowers.. And thinking of polishes that I use all the time.. Then I snapped out of it, grabbed a polish from my untried stash and went with that image. And.. I like it.

Although, now that I am slowly running out of time before I am going out.. I really want to paint my nails.. I wonder if I can pull something off.. We shall see!

Also, I was asked to post swatches from the Too Faced Naked Palette.. I have never done this before.. So, I hope I did it correctly. Here goes..



All of the shades I just wiped my fingertip in and did a quick smear across my arm.. I think this photo showed off some of the sheen the best, but, of course, they are much more gorgeous in person!

I hope everyone is off a great start in their week!! I should hopefully have another post before the end of the week..

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

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
