Zombie Zest Shattered

Hello everyone!

Sorrrrrry x a whole bunch! I have not been a very good blogger lately. I actually just have not been good at doing my nails lately. Everything I seem to even attempt is a pretty serious fail - so much so that I don't even want to scale down the images and post them. (They are really THAT bad!)

I had worn CG Zombie Zest with OPI Black Shatter for the Skrillex show on Tuesday evening.. And it actually held out until today.. Then, once I returned home from work I realized I had pulled a 'derp' move and never took a photo.

You get to see some tip wear and some chipped polish due to me doing dishes at work and my forever hate relationship with wearing gloves while doing the dishes. (seriously, it makes my hands much, much worse!)


The only reason I am sharing this is because I actually think it is a great combo! Halloween-ish, while not going over the top. A "safe bet", if you will.

AND! One more day to enter my little giveaway.. I cannot believe the response to it - you're all awesome for entering AND for actually reading what I wrote and telling me what you like (or don't like) about my personal favourite month: October. I cannot wait to find out who the winner is!!

Annnd I should also be painting my nails tomorrow as well. I'm hoping that I will actually do a good job.. Unlike the fail job I did with my Freddy Kruger nails - yikes!

Have a great evening everyone!

EDIT: I ended up buying an extra set of Revlon polishes as a bonus due to the volume of people entering the giveaway. I got the 2 winners via random.org on Friday (ok, Saturday at 12:05am) and e-mailed them. No response from either winner.. SO.. I have used random.org again to select two people - I am e-mailing them right now.. Hopefully I will hear back from these two so I can send off these gems!

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

Day 27: The Hungry Asian Cookies (and) Cream

Hey everyone! I decided that for today and tomorrow (my last day - eeek!) that I would choose two polish that mean something to me. Today I am going to be sharing Cookies & Cream made by the awesome Kae aka The Hungry Asian. When I first started blogging, I immediately started following her. She is the reason behind many of my polish purchases.. heh. She started "frakening" polish awhile back.. and I had a HUGE lemming for Cookies & Cream - but, at the time, she wasn't shipping to Canada. Then, when she started to ship to Canada, I would always miss the restock times.. Then I just sort of.. forgot about it. Then, a little while back, while stumbling through all the amazing gems on etsy.. I saw a photo.. I didn't need to see the seller or the name.. I knew. It was ordered almost immediately. And it has sat.. until now. It still makes me heart smile. And now that it is mine? Constant smiling heart! I decided to not use undies on this. It is

Terrazzo Inspired Nails

 Hey everyone! Will speed-race past a whole 'sorry I have been away' write-up and just go straight to the goods. I apologize in advance for my VERY dry cuticles (I cleaned up as much as I could in edit mode.. but, still bad) - I have been applying oil and lotions multiple times per day for.. weeks.. and.. no beneficial results, sadly. I went with terrazzo print inspired nails for this go-round. I started with a base coat, then OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI, then, using the brush for the each nail polish, I went in with: OPI Suzi Shops & Island Hops, OPI Sailing & Nail-ing, OPI Amazon...Amazoff, China Glaze Liquid Leather, China Glaze Sweet Hook, Essie Chinchilly, Color Club Je Ne Sasi Quoi, and Sally Hansen White On - then finally topped with Seche Vite. I am hoping to slowly creep back into regularly posting new content here - so, stay tuned!
