31 Day Challenge: Day 7 Black and White

Good ol black and white nails, aka: my favourite combo!

I took the easy route on this challenge.. I went with crackle polish! I have actually never successfully used my white crackle polish - and it almost was a success here - but not quite.. You'll see.




I was just starting apply the white crackle on my ring finger and I noticed it was cloudy. I jerked my hand away, but not quickly enough! It dripped on to my nail and I was stuck. I had to apply to that nail. It still somewhat worked, but it looks a bit gross.

AND, if I am using a black crackle polish, I usually go for OPI Black Shatter, but I actually like the China Glaze version better.. I see the results INSTANTLY, whereas with OPI I am left waiting for a bit. Solid!

How did I not realize that China Glaze makes crackle? Very cool- almost looks distressed.

Oh, this looks really cool actually. I don't own any crackle polishes. Gotta look into that. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the challenge :-)

@Aleya Bamdad - They do! I quite like them now that I have given them a fair shot! They even have metallic crackles now - and they are BEAUTIFUL!!

@Sophie - You should definitely get some! They are easy to use and it adds a little 'extra' to your nails (:

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!
