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!

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
