31 Day Challenge: Day 19 Galaxies

Oh. YES!

I think I can honestly say that galaxy nails are becoming my favourite thing to do nail-wise. I mean, yes, this IS only my second time doing them - but what is there to not enjoy?

I know I applied my sponging with a heavier hand this time - but I think it still looks like it should - and I like that!




I think these photos might have a tad blurry - I do apologize for that! I have a "new" set-up for my photos and I will have to work out all the kinks.. Or maybe just start taking more photos.. 4 doesn't seem to be cutting it right now!

I used: China Glaze Haunting as a base (must say: this polish is stunning! Yeah, I know, just black with some silver glitter - but it really is close to perfection - especially for a galaxy mani!), followed by some sponging of a mini bottle of white OPI polish, Zoya Pippa, mini orange OPI polish, & OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue.

The next time I do a galaxy mani - and it will probably be sooner rather than later - I am going to try some greens and purples. I have seen some photos using those colours and it looks amay-za-zing!

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!! I am terrified of day 20, just sayin'!

I have to agree with you I love doing the galaxy manicure. You get really pretty nails without having to be an artist, lol. These look wonderful.

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!
