31 Day Challenge: Day 18 Half Moons

What I planned to do for today, in theory (aka in my mind), seemed amazing; I still think it would look amazing if I spent more time doing it and, well, if I used a different method.

I bring to you the Half Moon challenge nails.. I would have to say that so far, I am most disappointed with these nails..



Yeah, gross. Ugggh.

I used some China Glaze Liquid Leather and my newly acquired OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It.

To make up for my lackluster skillz here, enjoy a photo of my new children..


Chatters must have been having some sort of deal when I bought these.. I brought the bag excitedly to my sister and was like 'guess what I bought?!' and she immediately guessed the Muppet collection polish.. But, the first thing I pull out of the bag was a top coat. My face dropped. Second bottle, base coat.. WTF?! I don't buy OPI top/base coat.. Then I checked and it really was my bag.. Oh right, I am saying they must have been having some sort of deal where you get the top and base coats.. Moving on..

We have: Divine Swine, Gresh Frog of Bel-Air, Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, & Rainbow Connection.

Cannot wait for tomorrow.. GALAXY nails!! Eee!

Now to waste a few more hours until it is movie time. Yes, I'm a Twi-Hard! Have a great Friday everyone!!

I'm not crazy about half moons as a rule, but this is a pretty good attempt imo. :)

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!
