China Glaze The Hunger Game Capitol Colours Collection

This. Post. Could. Not. Wait!

I had originally planned to post up some other new stuff I got the other day and the nails that I did with one of the newly acquired colours.. BUT! When I picked up this package today and saw it was my order from Nail Polish Canada, I knew that post was going to be put on a back burner.

Okay, first, I have to make a confession. When I did see the swatches for these gems online.. I wasn't overly thrilled. I just knew I'd be ordering them all anyways because I loved the book series so much.. I know, a sad reason to have a bunch of polish that you aren't overly excited about. In this case, however, I am really glad for my inexplicable reason to own them all. They. Are. All. BEAUTIFUL!

I did some swatching on a nail wheel to post up.. I mean, they do not do these bad boys justice, and for that I truly am sorry.

THEN! I had a moment of sheer genius. There are 12 colours.. And just over 12 days before the movie comes out.. PAPOW.. I can do a '12 Days of The Hunger Games' series. (I hope no one else out there has this going on either.. I mean, if they do, let me know! I will link you!) I was so jazzed about my idea, I bbm'ed my sister and told her. She probably thinks I am now crazy. It was either her or my bff I would have to message about this epiphany. I went the sister route as SHE READ the books (love you Gord!) - moving on!






So we have: Fast Track, Dress Me Up, Hook & Line, Mahogany Magic, Foie Gras, Agro, Harvest Moon, Riveting, Stone Cold, Smoke & Ashes, Electrify, and Luxe & Lush.

Again, I know these swatches do not do these any justice.. You'll just have to stay tuned for my '12 Days of The Hunger Games'. My plan is to post everyday using a different polish out of the 12 in some sort of nail design or as a base, you know how it works. I will sort of go from my least favourite to my favourite - though that isn't really a fair statement as I kind of have a new place in my polish loving heart for them all.. I guess it should be the from the polish I feel I will personally use the least to the one I feel I will use the most. Yah, that sounds better.. Right?

I will have that starting on Monday.. I am extremely excited. I scare myself sometimes.

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

Day 27: The Hungry Asian Cookies (and) Cream

Hey everyone! I decided that for today and tomorrow (my last day - eeek!) that I would choose two polish that mean something to me. Today I am going to be sharing Cookies & Cream made by the awesome Kae aka The Hungry Asian. When I first started blogging, I immediately started following her. She is the reason behind many of my polish purchases.. heh. She started "frakening" polish awhile back.. and I had a HUGE lemming for Cookies & Cream - but, at the time, she wasn't shipping to Canada. Then, when she started to ship to Canada, I would always miss the restock times.. Then I just sort of.. forgot about it. Then, a little while back, while stumbling through all the amazing gems on etsy.. I saw a photo.. I didn't need to see the seller or the name.. I knew. It was ordered almost immediately. And it has sat.. until now. It still makes me heart smile. And now that it is mine? Constant smiling heart! I decided to not use undies on this. It is

Terrazzo Inspired Nails

 Hey everyone! Will speed-race past a whole 'sorry I have been away' write-up and just go straight to the goods. I apologize in advance for my VERY dry cuticles (I cleaned up as much as I could in edit mode.. but, still bad) - I have been applying oil and lotions multiple times per day for.. weeks.. and.. no beneficial results, sadly. I went with terrazzo print inspired nails for this go-round. I started with a base coat, then OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI, then, using the brush for the each nail polish, I went in with: OPI Suzi Shops & Island Hops, OPI Sailing & Nail-ing, OPI Amazon...Amazoff, China Glaze Liquid Leather, China Glaze Sweet Hook, Essie Chinchilly, Color Club Je Ne Sasi Quoi, and Sally Hansen White On - then finally topped with Seche Vite. I am hoping to slowly creep back into regularly posting new content here - so, stay tuned!
