Rainbow Snakeskin aka Rainbow Tire Prints

I know, the title is a little strange.. But stick with me, and I will explain.

I really wanted to do something rainbow-esque the other day.. Yet my BM plate 215 was calling my name (aka the snakeskin pattern).. Then it suddenly hit me: sponge on a wealth of colours and use the pattern on top. YEX! (and I legitimately mean 'yex' - just say it in place of 'yes', believe me, it is fun!)

What I had wanted to do was have my colours all sponged on top of a yellow base, then use grey and black layered stamping action.. Though when I tried the grey on my pinky, I hated it and just went with black. Now, it is sort of distressed in some places.. And at some points in time, it still looked like a snakeskin print to me.. Then, I was like 'no, this is something else.. but what?' THEN I thought of the obscure movie 'Rubber' and my nails resembled tire impressions.. Everything made sense to me for the rest of the day after that.

I know, I'm strange. Moving on..







I used Orly Spark as the base, followed by some sponging of OPIs Ogre-the-Top Blue and Who The Shrek Are You?, then some Orly Sol Cabana, and finally China Glaze Heli-Yum. Then I used BM plate 215 with some Wet n Wild Black Creme.

 My only remaining question: what do you see? Snakeskin? Tire print? Something entirely different - sorry, could not resist.

Have a stellar Sunday pals - it is now time for me to start up my work week.. ugh.

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

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!! I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica , SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica . They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!! One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop .. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well. I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
