Grey Scaled Cheetah

Or Grey Scaled Leopard.. Who knows.. Something from the cat family..

I was sorting through my untried drawer (well, I have some polishes that are untried in a drawer along with some other nail art/polish supplies.. I don't have enough new stuff to need a whole drawer.. though that would be kind of neat.. and intimidating.. anyways!) and I saw that Essie Cocktail Bling was still hiding in there. Um, Dee, why? You love grey polish.. I obviously had to do something to remedy this non-usage of this grey bad boy.



I used Essie Cocktail Bling, followed with some dots of China Glaze OMG and accenting/dots with my trusty China Glaze Liquid Leather (Orly Liquid Vinyl is hiding on me.. and it displeases me greatly!) and I also used a dotting tool that was sent to me from Born Pretty.

I have to say.. Cocktail Bling is a very intriguing grey to me.. It is almost hints at a lilac-y colour in some lights.. And I am not a huge fan of lilacs, but as a colour, I like. And I feel somewhat dismayed.. OMG is sitting at the 50% mark.. I think it will have to go in to hiding and only be used for special occasions, unless I come across another bottle somehow.. The stress!!

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
