31 Day Challenge: Day 23 Inspired by a movie

Ugh. So many movies to choose from.. THEN once I decided on a movie.. I failed my way through a few nail ideas.. Then I was like 'oh, derp!' and did something simple.. Or so I thought it would be. Except that I screwed up the placement of two items.. BUT.. I think that is ok. PLUS I was running out of time and needed to get these bad boys done so I could go study.



Yeah. I went with Home Alone. I have a very special place in my heart for the movie (ok, and the second film!!) Plus I kind of love Macaulay Culkin.. And the character Buzz McCallister. I first went with a bunch of little elements that make up the movie.. But I kept messing something up and restarting.. That was getting to be a large mess. I finally decided to go with the house that is on the cover. I placed the chimney on the wrong side and technically the blue should be darker.. But ahh well, I tried! I do believe The Daily Nail did Home Alone nails at one point in time?

I used Essie Mesmerize as the base, the some Essie Silken Cord and Orly Spark to finish it up. Again, could have been better.. I spose I should try a bit harder. If I didn't have exams and assignments looming over my head, maybe things would be better.. AND I know I shouldn't use excuses as everyone has something going on in their lives at any given time. Merp! I'll do better.. I'll try!

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!
