Quick Update-Esque Post

Hello everyone!!

I feel like I haven't updated in forever.. Which is mostly true.

I think my lack of posts is due to the fact that I just haven't really been doing anything with my nails. I know, extremely boring!!

If I do wear polish, it has to be something glittery as the glitter adds some depth to my nails, blahblahblah, I'm trying to find excuses for my laziness.

I mean, it was my favourite friends birthday on Saturday.. And I ran out of time during the day between work, picking out new glasses and showering that it came down to either taking a nap or painting my nails. Nap won. I went to an event with naked nails. I actually feel really sad writing that. Ugh. NEVER AGAIN!




These are the photos I currently have to post up. Boring, right? I am currently sporting Across The Universe.. And we're not the best of friends. There is extreme shrinkage AND tip wear all in less than 24 hours. Mer! I also think next time I use it, I will base with another polish. Live and learn.

Earth Matters. Green. Glitter. Love!

Ahh that reminds me!! I will have to snap a photo for the next post.. The seed card I planted.. Totally has a tiny, tiny little sprout! I ran around the house like a crazy person showing off that sweet, sweet baby to anyone that came in to my field of view. I'm so proud!

I think with my work schedule the way it is.. I will be painting my nails way less.. But I am going to have to designate days. I think I will have to do something Saturdays, as I work more outside of the kitchen on Sunday.. And then something again either Sunday evening or Monday during the day. Otherwise I will never paint them.. Which would break my heart.

Ok, enough sad update-ish post!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! This "week" is always crazy for me.. It is a week of birthdays.. My FF on April 30th, the ma on May 2nd and the sis on May 4th aka today - Happy Birthday Lee-Lee!!

OH! Something else I wanted to mention.. I went for my first ever pedicure with my FF earlier in the evening. It was an excellent experience.. One I plan to actually keep up - especially for the summer! I am sporting CG Ruby Pumps, which, oddly enough, is a polish I do not own.

Alright, now I'm done!



  • Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes - I actually loved applying that polish.. I can see why it is one of your favourites!! I also cannot wait to see what that GOSH polish has to offer me.. Soon!!
  • JQ - I own 3 SpaRituals, but so far this is the first I have used and I have to say: love! I think you will really enjoy the brand once you get your hands on some!!
  • Minty - Thank youuu!! And thanks for the award! I will think of some facts and post something up soon! I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!! Thank you!!
  • Swaffie - I am quite pleased with what I have purchased in the past couple of weeks as well! And thank you, thank you! I will get to work on that award asap as well!! Muchly appreciated!!
  • shortwidenails - And swatches you shall get! Next post, I promise (err, don't totally hold me to that!) - But, what I can tell you from using both a few times: I am in love and I am extremely happy that I ended up purchasing both. In the long run, the Natural is more what I sway towards, but have been using the Naked palette WAY more!!

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!
