Rainbow Polka Dots Nails Inspired By Kayla

A while back, the genius Kayla, blogged about her amazing rainbow polka dots manicure. I knew, as soon as I saw it, that I HAD to copy it.. It was stunning! Then, last week, she posted up a tutorial. I already knew how I was going to go about doing it.. But having a tutorial always helps (:

And, I'm not going to lie.. I absolutely love how it turned out! - And side note: It took a smidge less than 25 minutes from start to finish. Love that!


I used: CG White Out, CG Rich & Famous, Orly Sol Cabana, Orly Spark, Color Club Twiggie, OPI No Room For The Blues & CG Spontaneous.

I also used a dotting tool, which was sent to me from Born Pretty.

I figured I would finally blog for a few.. Especially since I want to be around the computer right now. My sister and I ordered some feather hair extensions that are less than impressive.. I am currently in contact with the seller trying to remedy the situation. It has kept me from looking through my F21 order that came in today. Le sigh.

OH! I also bought a polish (the other day..) that I have kind of wanted for awhile now.. And once my friend told me that Essie polish was on sale at Shopper's.. Well, I jumped at the chance to own Essie Turquoise & Caicos.

The evening I bought it, I knew I had to wear it immediately. BUT.. I don't do so well with just polish.. And it was late and I had to work in the morning.. Ohh right. White Cap. LOVE this combo!



I actually loved this enough to use this combo for my toes. I think it looks fantastic together.

Now I think I am going to go try the newspaper mani that my best pal was talking about AND sporting last night! My rainbow dots are too chipped to get another day of wear :(

I hope everyone is having a great night!!




  • Claire - Thankies!! (:
  • Irishenchantment - Thanks doll! They worked well together!
  • ABOP - I agree!!

The rainbow dots remind me of these candies I ate when I was little --the ones where its a sheet of candy dots and had to peel off the candy

I love the 2nd mani, I totally want White Cap !!

It looks great!
I'm glad to see that you can use colours besides the ones I used and still achieve an amazing result. I'm happy to have inspired you. :)

GREAT job on your dots...I have not gotten around to trying it since Kayla posted it...and me thinking I can do this one myself - real nail art - imagine that! And as for adding White Cap...well it's on my wish list STILL - seeing it overlayed here has me rushing to get it moved off the wish list to the on the way list now!!!

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!

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!
