Sephora Grand Opening Haul + My Sad Start To Halloween Nails

Ok, so, I will keep this no secret: I love Sephora. And, I love it even more now that was have one here! I swear, this is a tremendous day in Saskatoon history; horrible day for my wallet.

I went with a few of my faves for a full out event evening - and it was so worth it! I actually stayed under my Sephora budget, so I also bought myself the Katy Perry perfume as it smells amazing. Annnnyways..



I didn't have anything I particularly wanted.. And I was good - I put back the UD Book of Shadows palette.. BUT.. I found a different palette to purchase. A Tarte palette inspired by True Blood. Le sigh. And the colours seem to be quite pigmented. Swatches? Anyone? And the rest was just.. added bonuses. Ok, I lied. I did go wanting something in particular: Makeup Forever Smoky Lash. And I got it - yay! The only thing that I wanted that they were out of was a NARS blush.. I will get it next time, I guarantee it.. I mean, I will basically live there.

Now you can see my sucky first go at Halloween nails for this year. I apologize in advance, I didn't even clean these up as I was going to take it all off.. But I then saw the clock (midnight, yesterday) and was like 'ehmmm.. go to bed, you write an exam in the morning!' And they stayed. And people actually seem to like them. Weirdos (:


My red lines are too thick for the most part. I am dying without my "special" brushes. There is just no replacing them. Ugh.

BUT, I do have something exciting for my next post - which will be asap.. Eeee!!

Take care til then!!

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

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
