Splatter Nails

AKA a very thin line separating good and terribad.

I swear this type of nail art is almost as elusive to me as water marbling. They don't seem like they would be that difficult, then I give them a whirl and basically fail. Yet I really do like the look of both.. Some year I will get the hang of it all!!



As you can see, I messed up quite badly, especially on my middle and ring fingers. The other three, I liked. I also liked what was going on on my right hand, but I forgot to take the photos before heading out to bowling last night.. My thumb nail is ripped and torn up.. Cannot show! BUT I can tell you that there is really only one fail nail on that hand..

I based the colours I used off this photo - and the colours I used were: Orly Liquid Vinyl as the base, followed with some Zoya Pippa, OPI Ogre-the-Top Blue, and Orly White Out. Sorry, I forgot to snap a bottle shot!

I guess I am going to have to go remove this polish and head back to the drawing board for something different - awe yeah! Have a great weekend everyone (:

I think it looks great. The color combination is amazing! And I don't even think of your ring finger nail as a fail. :) Can't wait to see your next attempt!

I haven't tried this technique yet. I love your thumb and pinky!

I think they look great, I like the colours you chose! Stuff like this can take a while to get the composition just right - the first few times I tried galaxy nails I haaated them because I couldn't balance the colours correctly! Just takes practice! :)

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
