31 Day Challenge: Day 22 Inspired by a song

I would have probably had some more trouble doing this one.. But then about a week and a half ago, my brother told me that Troy from Community (played by the excellent Donald Glover) had a rap album about to be released and that is has been doing it for awhile, etc..

Of course I had to scope some of the songs. There are 2 that I absolutely love.. And the rest are also pretty great. He is nerdish (seriously, some of the lyrics are just.. nerdishly awesome!) and explicit and just excellent.

Anyways. I decided to use the song 'Heartbeat' as my song choice because it fits this heart monitor mani I have seen before that I really wanted to do on myself.. Did and done!



I used Orly Liquid Vinyl and Essie Silken Cord. I decided to skip the lines on my thumb as I tried to see how I could align my thumb with the rest of my fingers for photos and yeah, wasn't happening.. So sad little hearts is what you get via the thumb!

I have been trying to take some photos without the thumb involved.. But it feels weird to me. I think I will always have to be a thumb-in-photo-includer. Yah.


This is my inspiration song.. Again, I am warning you, it does contain some explicit lyrics.. But really, are there any better type of lyrics? (I mean, explicit lyrics are great as I feel that sentence does not make any sense..)

AND I love his whole album and now I am slowly collecting some of his "older" tunes as well. Love. Him.

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!
