Half n Half Nails

I have been loving this PHOTO  for a long time via tumblr, so when it showed up on some boards via pinterest, I knew I had to recreate it. Not going to lie: I love it!!



Out of the numerous pink polish I own, I decided I wanted to try out Pink Friday from the OPI Nicki Minaj collection. At first, I hated it.. It looked really gross with my skin tone, and usually pink polish and myself are close to bff status, so I was a bit upset and was prepared to start over with a new pink.. But I told myself to suck it up and add some Turquoise & Caicos and move on with my evening.. It worked. I like them together - it makes me not hate that pink with my skin tone. Case closed.

I already sort of mentioned what I used, but for safe measures: OPI Pink Friday, Essie Turquoise & Caicos, and Orly Liquid Vinyl.

Speaking of pinterest, is it weird that I almost cried when I found people repining and liking photos from my blog? And I mean cry tears of joy.. For whatever reason, I find it amazing that people repin what I do.. Which, I mean, I'm a copy artist for 98% of what I post.. I'm not creative enough to come up with my own designs, but the fact that people like them anyways is kind of a big deal to me!!

Have an awesome Friday loves!!

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!
