31 Day Challenge: Day 11 Polka Dots

Oh yes, polka dots! My favourite, most trustworthy/never fail, go-to nail art..

I decided to go to the untried drawer for this day of the challenge (for the umpteenth time!)

I found two colours that I thought would play well together.. And they did. And I am now madly in love with one of them.




I used China Glaze Midtown Magic and GOSH Golden Brown to achieve this look.

Ok, I know I am going to sound a bit.. err, crazy here, BUT, Midtown Magic is one of the sexiest colours I have yet to come across. It is like a.. chocolate purple.. Does that make sense? I seriously thought it was a brown base, but it isn't at all.. It is a purple tinged bottle of, well, magic! I am really glad I second guessed myself in the store and picked this up a month+ ago.. I cannot wait to use this again.. And it is a polish I would happily sport all on its own. /swoon.

Oh, and, I hope you're all sporting your poppies today and that you remembered to give your moment of silence at 11:00am. Take care til tomorrow!!

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
