Framed Cheetah

I was really jazzed to try out the whole 'outlined' nails trend that I have been seeing in photos.. Now, I do really like it, but I think next time I would paint the nails in the outline colour first THEN do the middle colour.. Maybe it will be easier? Probably not, but I can pretend.

ANYWAYS! I have this bin in my room that houses all my books to read.. It is white with rainbow cheetah print and lime green edges (a photo of it would be smart..)

I knew that is exactly how I would do my outlined nails. My best friend said it like my nails have "frames", and I loved that.. Which is how the name 'Framed Cheetah' was born. Yup, trivia in the making right there!

For this, I used: Orly White Out, China Glaze Entourage, OPI No Room For The Blues, China Glaze Rich & Famous, Orly Spark, OPI Sparrow Me The Drama, and Orly Liquid Vinyl.

I am hoping to be able to post up something again by the end of the week.. I have a final exam on Friday and then leaving for a quick overnight trip to Edmonton on the Saturday.. I am already boarding the excuse-train.. I am seriously hoping to have a post made up for you all though! Ooh and this is my first actual nail art of the new year.. Yay?!

I hope everyone had an excellent weekend (I sure did!) and that you will all have a phenomenal week. It is about to get seriously cold here. I'm not impressed.

I hope everything goes as smoothly as possible for you!

Great mani. I love every aspect of it, I'm going to have to try out my own version of this soon. (I'll link back to you!)

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!
