The Nail Polish Tag

The rules are to answer the 10 questions, pass this tag onto 5 bloggers, and to make sure the bloggers you tagged know about this!

1. How many polishes do you have?
I would say under 200. I am currently working on a spreadsheet, so hopefully I will be able to give a legit answer soon!! EDIT: Hah.. ugh. 248 + 33 that I took out because I don't ever use them.. plus many, many minis. A lot more than I thought I had. Whelp, time to add more!

2. What is your favourite brand of polish?
I am going to have to say China Glaze.. But I do hold Orly in high regards as well.

3. Do you like crackle nail polish or do you hate it?
I quite enjoy them.. I just don't use them too often. Only when I'm in a rush and need something to toss on to my nails to make them seem fun!!

4. What is your first nail polish brand?
It was probably Maybelline.. Or Cover Girl Crackle polish way back when. I saved some of my babysitting money to purchase it.

5. If you were to have your own nail polish line, what would you call it?
I would call it G&G.. It reminds me of the days playing Railroad Tycoon with my dad (aka me teaching him how to play!) and we always named our company G&G (Gloeden & Gloeden, our last name).. I feel it has rad name. I guess that is what my company would be. A line though? Something nerdy and referencing movies or books. I would probably name the colours after my favourite movie murderers.. awkward?

6. What nail polish colour does not compliment you?
Actually, my Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air does not suit me at all! It makes my pale skin look too zombie-esque when worn alone. I layered it over What's With the Catitude? and it looks better..

7. What nail polish colours do compliment you?
I don't really hate any colours on me.. But that doesn't mean they compliment me.. BUT, I figure I'm a "winter" colour wise, so, any rich tones.

8. Name two of your best nail art friends.
I would say my sister for irl nail art friends.. Though I do have friends that are getting more in to painting their nails and such - it seriously makes my heart smile! And online? I'd say Li Lian of shortwidenails - she is such a sweetheart! We have had some good correspondence over the years..

9. What was the best nail polish gift you've ever received?
I'd say when I won the Polish or Perish anniversary giveaway. I don't really enter too many giveaways, but I did enter that one and won.. I got so many nail polishes - and brands that I would otherwise never get my mitts on!

10. Make a speech about thanking the blogger who tagged you.
Alex won one of my Revlon nail polish giveaways.. It finally arrived to her! She is a sweetheart and I was happy to be in contact while we anxiously awaited those gems to get to her! Not only did I get to know her a bit, but I found a new blog to follow - always a bonus!!

Now for the five blogs.. well, you all should know by now how I am with these bad boys. If you're reading this and haven't been tagged YET, well, then, TAG! Do this (:

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!

Splatter Floral Nails

Hey everyone! Last night, after I did these nails and when I went to bed - I was quite pleased with my nails. When I woke up this morning, though, I wasn't overly crazy about them. I thought of a few things I could change so that I would really like them.. I am very tempted to take how I want them to look and recreate them before work.. I might just have to do it. Anyways! Really, there is nothing wrong with them.. I just sort of find them.. boring? Ah well! I used: Lime Crime Milky Ways China Glaze White On White OPI My Favourite Ornament China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Sweet Hook OPI Mod About You Formula X For Sephora Infatuated Orly Liquid Vinyl China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I made the roses with a "main" colour and white, then I did the details with the "main" colour and black mixed together. Again, I don't dislike these bad boys.. I am just not amazed by them! Also.. did you
