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!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
