I'm A Bad Blogger + Guest Nails

My last post was 12 days ago!? What the freak have I been doing!?

Oh, right. Not my nails (too often).. I have been working mostly in the dish pit and have no reason to do my nails. Plus, when I do paint them, I haven't really been doing anything fun. I slap a crackle or shatter top coat on and go.. So, for that, I do apologize!

I do have a wealth of photos to share though.. Let's get started!



First, my nails. I have always enjoyed the look of what Nailside was doing, but was too scared to test it out as I wasn't sure if myself and tape would get along. I followed the Mummy Mani  tutorial.. And, I liked the results! I went a little crazy with tape placement and sizes, but I really do like the outcome and will definitely try it again (and again, and again, etc).

I used OPI A Grape Fit as my base followed by CG Avalanche.

Then, last night, I went to my bestie's baseball games right after work. It was excellent! I had wanted to go watch some games this morning before working the evening shift, but I slept in.. Whoops! I hope her team is doing well!! THEN after the games, we returned back to the city and went straight over to the Exhibition!! I have not gone in 11 years, so that was quite fun!

We did some rides, played some games, etc.. My sister and some of her friends were also going, so we met up with them! One thing I really like about my friends and her friends, we all get along really well, we're like a large set of blended sisters (or family members).. It always makes for a great time! Oh, and, we all won domo dolls, nbD or anything..


Now go back a day.. It was 'Jersday', and my good friend had asked me to do a French Manicure for her as she had a wedding coming up the next day? Or maybe it is today? I cannot remember! But, she came over, I did my first official French Manicure and we watched Jersey Shore. I forgot to snap a photo of her nails! THEN, another good friend popped in.. She has been working on growing her nails up a bit, and they finally had reached a point that she found suitable for me to paint them up! She had mentioned before that she really liked how I did my ma's nails at one point in time, so I decided to do that very same design for her!



For that design I used CC High Society on four of the fingers and for the dots on the ring finger; OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue was used on the ring finger and for the dots on the other four fingers; followed that up with some WnW Black Creme for the leopard/cheetah spots.

I have also been thinking lately that I should somehow start incorporating more about make-up items in to my blog so then I don't go 12 days without posting anything.. So, I give you a photo of some new items I am putting to the test.. Then, probably within a month, I will show photos from purchase date to that point in time and see if there are any changes.. Hopefully that will be all right with everyone! Oh, and I will toss in a photo of Bennie cuteness and call this blog post a wrap!


Have a great weekend everyone!!

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!
