Kelly Meets Latticed Lilac

And got totally destroyed by a mini-monster who has an affinity for shiny items.

Quite the intro, wouldn't you say so?

I know I would!

Now for some explanation.. It was 2am.. I had an appointment at the bank at 10am.. I needed to have SOMETHING on my nails.. And I needed some sleep in there somewhere. THEN I remembered my newly acquired bottle of CG Crackle Latticed Lilac. I also remembered testing it on the nail wheel over Zoya Kelly. PERFECT!

Not going to lie.. I love this combo.. So, before I could capture it in a photo AND do cleanup.. I visited with Bennie.. He is a degu and has shown up on here many times before.. Anyways.. Apparently degus like shiny things (or he does, at least).. My nails happened to be quite shimmery.. He tried to steal my nail.. It wasn't like the time he bit me out of anger, he didn't even do any damage to my nail.. Just the polish..


You can plainly see the damage that was done.. Rascal! Ohh well. It was only going to be a one day thing anyways as I had to do dishes the next day. Though I do think this will be the next combo for my toes - I love it!

Now, even though Bennie was a nail wrecker, I still allowed him some hangout time with Fonze. I, of course, nabbed a photo for all of you to enjoy..


That is about all for now.. OH! Except hello to my new followers (: 261?! WHAT?! AWESOME! I appreciate each and every one of you, always!

Hopefully I will have something rad on my nails mid-week to show. And I am hoping to film another tutorial soooon!

Have an awesome start to the week everyone - I know I am!!

OH! Also, I know I shouldn't ask.. BUT.. If you don't know anyone else entered in that Styled On contest (on facebook), or, you like my entry, please vote for me!! That would be great!! VOTE HERE

  • beachgal - You should give it a try! It isn't overly difficult, but it one of those manis where people are shocked and think it took you forever to do! I think it is just because of all the different colours (: AND, I cannot stress this enough, BUY WHITE CAP! You will love it!!!!

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!
