31 Day Challenge: Day 31 Re-create your favourite challenge

Ohhhh no, no, no, NO! Did you think I would give myself the satisfaction of re-creating MY favourite challenge? Nope, not at all. I went back and looked at all my failboat attempts and decided to try to DO better. Did I do better this time? Sort of. I had more fun.. There was a smidge of deception here and there, but mostly fun.




Just tossing this out there.. I liked it better with the tape on.. I thought the tape looked the best. So, this compared to my other attempt - better, right? Please? It is far from perfect.. Butttt.. I kind of like it.. Ok, seriously, the idea is amazing, I just cannot for the life of me execute it correctly. And my index nail was out for murder.. The first time I went to dip it in to the polish/water, nothing stuck to it.. The second time it did, but for some reason the bottom right corner looks like it was eaten away by acid.. No idea what went on there.

Anyways.. friends, the 31 day challenge comes to an end now.. It was exhausting, but I loved it.

Now we can get back to normal. I want to start filming tutorials again soon.. I want to start posting AT LEAST once a week.. I need to start backlogging posts or something. Thanks for sticking with me through these 31 days. I look forward to the rest of this year with all of you (:

EDIT: What a jerk.. almost forgot this two days in a row!!

I must admit that I also like some of the stuff on the tape. :)

This looks pretty! way better than the first try! I love the bright colors!

I tried it once and it took forever to dry after taking my fingers out of the water.. does this usually happen? I mean.. do I have to wait for an hour or so for it to dry to apply the topcoat?

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!
