Mix and Match

Is basically what this post is all about!

I will start off with my nail stickers that I basically wore through all of last week..






These gems are the Sally Hansen Salon Effects in 330 Fly With Me. I honestly wasn't really interested in these, but my sister tried out a set a couple of weeks ago, and loved them! So I grabbed this set as I know that I will never be able to paint a decent butterfly on my own.. AND I have to say: love. These are great! I mean, when this photo was snapped, I had been wearing them for 4 days (3 of which were serious work days..) and I felt they didn't look TOO bad. I think one of my favourite parts was the removal.. They are real nail polish.. So taking it off was like taking off your regular old polish.. awwwwesome! I think I would recommend these for a special occasion though.. I remember seeing on another blog that for the cost of a "high end" (err.. mid-range?) bottle of polish (which does multiple manis) - you get one from these. I mean, you can accent mani to your hearts content..

My only other complaint is the size of some of the strips.. A few of them are real monsters. Oh well, all in all, I really did like them and do recommend them. Especially for designs that you know you will never be able to do on your own.. Also, SH, do something with skulls and I'll be your biggest fan!!

Speaking of skulls.. I have no idea why, but recently (ok, since like February or March) I have been OBSESSED with skulls. My bff picked up on this and bought me an amazing skull necklace for my birthday and I seriously wear it every chance I get! I will this tie in to my next photos, I promise!

The other day (read: a couple of weeks ago) I was perusing amazon.com (not .ca for once!) and really wanted to order the bundle monster plates as I see so many great manis being done using those little gems. What sold me? Skull action!


The skull bad boy is actually the very last plate. I apologize for the glare. I took 5 different photos and this is the best.

But I got something else from them as well...






Fimo canes! YAY! Although it is a strange purchase as I really am not a rhinestone wear-er.. But I figure I can stick these on to jazz up certain manis.. Maybe even pedis.. Who knows!! I then used a recently emptied out rhinestone wheel to house some newly sliced canes. I picked out a few that I would want to try to use sometime soon.. But honestly, way too many to choose from!!




Some of my cutting is a bit too thick I believe.. But it was worth a shot.. Ooh, notice the skulls! Awe yeah!!

Alright, well, that is all I have to post up for now! I did paint my nails this evening, but forgot to photograph them before uploading all these photos.. I guess that means you'll get ANOTHER post later.. (:

Have a great day/evening/night - well, whatever time you're reading this at, enjoy!! It is 2:30am.. I should probably go pass out now!! Goodnight!!




  • rebecca - I hope you took advantage of the sale!! I will have to scope out that shade myself!! Just in case..
  • shortwidenails - True, but they often have really awesome deals! And some of the stores more so than others, which is weird! Ahh I LOVE White Cap - except that I always want to call it 'Snow Cap'.. Haha, luckily I can sleep when my room is a mess.. Otherwise I would never sleep! I actually started tidying it up earlier this evening.. It took me 3 hours to basically clear off my dresser. Yikes!!
  • Irishenchantment - Haha I figure I might just be the only one.. Yay! Thank you for following (:
  • Vintage Makeup - Thaaank you very much! And I agree, they are super cute!
  • Minty - I cannot wait to keep testing it over other gems!! Heeey.. It only takes 1.. Right? Right! (:

Using the rhinestone wheel is brilliant! I think I may want some fimo canes. I need to see a post to be fully convinced though.

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

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!

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
