Colourful Zebra Fade

I obviously could not come up with a better title of this bad boy..

Besides that, hello everyone!! I hope you're all doing well!!

I figure I should get a post up today as I will have at least enough content for another post sometime before the week is done. I am starting to get to a place where I don't have to paint my nails and post up the same day.. I am starting to get a bit behind.. (much to the displeasure of my bff! Sorry Gordo!)


These were the nails I have been sporting for the last few days.. I swear Rebecca of Rebecca Likes Nails is my muse or something. She used a stamp to make hers much, much better.. But I don't believe I have that particular stamp (I have another one, but it just wasn't the same..) - I freehanded it.. And I might have been drinking at the time, so please do not judge too harshly!! (:


These are the gems I used. Of course I forgot to snap a photo of another child.. But, you're all pretty familiar with him.. Anyways, these kids are: OPIs: Shorts Story, A Grape Fit, Ogre-The-Top Blue & No Room For The Blues. I also used CG Liquid Leather. Technically I should have used the sponge technique to make this look even better, but I just painted them on.. No fuss!

Speaking of my 'bff' (I use that term in quotes as, well, we ARE, but I need to find a better term for it..) - she has been working crazy amounts of overtime, so she got yesterday off.. Mondays happen to be my Saturdays, so I got to spend the whole day with her! It was awwwwesome! Of course we went shopping. I will show you the non-nail polish goodies I bought (look for the nail polish bad boys in an upcoming post..) - If you are strictly all about nail polish and do not wish to look at anything but, you can close up the window now.. BUT, I have a huuuuge love for nail polish and an almost equal amount of love for other cosmetics (make-up, bath and body products, etc).. I think most of us do, but hey, some don't! Onwards we go..



I will start with the bath/body goodies.. I went to two 'rival' shops.. For a few reasons.. I used to have serious issues with scents.. I still do, but I can handle more now.. Little bits at a time.. Anyways, we stopped in at LUSH and for once the store wasn't extremely overpowering in its scents - win! I really wanted to get a lip scrub from them as my lips have been peeling a lot, and I don't help as I bite them constantly. The items are: Dragon's Egg bath bomb that smells AWESOME! Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly (it smells like jube jubes!!), Bubblegum Lip Scrub and a Charity Pot lotion.. Notice how I went for one thing and came out with more. I'm such a sucker. Oh, the Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly is amazing! So is the lip scrub.. Tested them both out last night.

I also wanted to quickly stop in to The Body Shop.. I was visiting the shop that a friend works in the other day (I wanted to get a candle.. and I get an awesome discount!) - as I was leaving, I noticed they had a new scent (at least to me..) LEMON! I am a sucker for lemon scented items. Of course it would be 4 bottles for $16, so you're getting 50% off. Done. I snapped up Sweet Lemon, Pink Grapefruit, Satsuma and Strawberry. All of them smell fantastic! I didn't see my good pal Raspberry in there.. I hope it wasn't limited edition.. I will have to ask my friend!! Anyways.. I love the shower gels.. They smell amazing and leave your skin nice and quite soft.


Also, while we were out.. I needed to stop at the MAC counter. The other night I used some of my Blacktrack fluidline.. I hadn't used it in a long time.. And I think it might be 6-7 years old.. Yikes! Time to replace. I was good there. That is all I bought. Then, later in the evening, the mother wanted to do a quick Shoppers run.. That is never a good place for me. I always buy some type of cosmetic. I have been wanting to get a bronzer as I do not absorb any colour during the summer (ok, maybe a shade darker.. and by darker I mean pinker).. I of course loved this one..


I did apply it a bit heavier so you could see it.. Notice the shimmer? I love shimmery products. I know they may seem silly and childish, but I don't get sick of them. I will probably be in my late 40s wearing shimmery eyeshadow (even though they are unforgiving with wrinkles..)

And that is all for today.. I hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday! I shall talk to all of you sometime again during this week!!




  • Claire - Aren't they adorable!? LOVE them also. Thank you!!
  • The Nail Buff - Thank you very much (:
  • A Polished Touch - Thank you! And thank you so much for following (:
  • Minty - Thank you!! I love the colour alone, but I really felt it needed an extra kick.. (:
  • Doo - Your orange franken is sooo lovely! I love the holo action to it!! I actually think the one you made is closer to what I wanted!! It looks so awesome because of the lemons.. That is my story and I'm sticking to it!!

Comments

I did almost the EXACT same mani last week! The only thing I had that you didn't was the silver glitter. Our brains must be hard-wired with Rebecca's.

I really like this :) And I espeically like the fact that you are doing your nails while drinking ;) Maybe I should try that one day :p
For some reason, I added you to my US blogger list in Google Reader, until I saw the Quo bronzer lol. Was really tempted to pick it up myself :)

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

Splatter Floral Nails

Hey everyone! Last night, after I did these nails and when I went to bed - I was quite pleased with my nails. When I woke up this morning, though, I wasn't overly crazy about them. I thought of a few things I could change so that I would really like them.. I am very tempted to take how I want them to look and recreate them before work.. I might just have to do it. Anyways! Really, there is nothing wrong with them.. I just sort of find them.. boring? Ah well! I used: Lime Crime Milky Ways China Glaze White On White OPI My Favourite Ornament China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Sweet Hook OPI Mod About You Formula X For Sephora Infatuated Orly Liquid Vinyl China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I made the roses with a "main" colour and white, then I did the details with the "main" colour and black mixed together. Again, I don't dislike these bad boys.. I am just not amazed by them! Also.. did you

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Gross Nails

Hey everyone! Not sure what else to call these.. other than gross.. these are the nails I imagine some sadistic swamp-dwelling mother of mutants to have.. yeah, that. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat OPI Coca-Cola Red China Glaze Cranberry Splash KL Polish Snickerdoodle OPI Suzi - The First Lady of Nails OPI My Vampire Is Buff Orly Liquid Vinyl Sponge Dotting Tool Fake Nails These were rather fun to make.. but dangerous! Who knew breaking up fake nails would make them so sharp! Fun! That is all for today! See you tomorrow!
