Halloween Round-Up of 2011

This post is just going to be a smorg of nails photos and Halloween yard decor..

The love Halloween. In fact, it is my favourite day of the whole entire year. I think it is more so that I love the fact that all things "scary" are celebrated. LOVE. It! I usually do not actually go out and celebrate bar style; my thing is decorating.. We didn't get everything working this year, but I plan to start working on decorations as soon as the weather is nice (aka July) and make sure I get everything that I want to work, well, to work!

I will toss up the nails pics first.. These are from the last few weeks. I apologize for my awful photos and sometimes my nails are badly chipped - I will get better soon - I promise!







Now the decorations..










Also - I had to select two new winners for my giveaway.. I received e-mails back within 12 hours.. Needless to say, I was ecstatic!

The winners are: Alex & Anh. I am shipping those packages out tomorrow!! Then I cannot wait to receive word that their goodies arrived safely.

And that is it.. for now. I really want to start that 31 day challenge. I would like to start tomorrow.. but we shall see! My weeks have been filled with a wealth of activities, work and school. I still need to find some time for more exams. Bleh. BUT, do look forward to that 31 day challenge.. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

I hope everyone had an amazing October and a fantastic Halloween.. Bring on the other 364 days, I'm content now (:

@lucyclark - Thankies love!

@beauxs mom - YES! Yayyy! I am glad someone (other than my family) knows who IT is. He scares me.. I wanted a different image of him for the pumpkin, but I had to go with what was available. I might have to sketch out my own next year (: He is terrifying though..

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!
