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!!

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

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!

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Gross Nails

Hey everyone! Not sure what else to call these.. other than gross.. these are the nails I imagine some sadistic swamp-dwelling mother of mutants to have.. yeah, that. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat OPI Coca-Cola Red China Glaze Cranberry Splash KL Polish Snickerdoodle OPI Suzi - The First Lady of Nails OPI My Vampire Is Buff Orly Liquid Vinyl Sponge Dotting Tool Fake Nails These were rather fun to make.. but dangerous! Who knew breaking up fake nails would make them so sharp! Fun! That is all for today! See you tomorrow!
