Happy Birthday To Me!!

Of course I just have enough time before my DAY ends to get this all posted up.. I meant to do it earlier in the day.. But.. You know how fun, busy days can be!

I knew for my actual birthday nails, I wanted cupcake nails.. And I randomly stumbled across this tutorial, so I went with that - and I love it!



For these bad boys, I used: Daisy Nail Lacquer Pink Sachet, Orly White Out, Joe Butter, Essie Silken Cord, China Glaze Make Some Noise, China Glaze Entourage, and OPI No Room For The Blues.

I got to spend my day with my siblings.. And it was so much fun! The weather was fairly nice - but extremely windy.. So we took advantage of that! We went mini golfing.. then to Ruckers.. And it was just really great! Then it was home time to enjoy family supper, amazing cake, and a few episodes of 'Sons of Anarchy'.

Now I am going to show you some of the gifts I received.. From my family, of course.. I love that they all seem to know exactly what to get for me!




My siblings (ok, my brother with help from my sister) got my the amazing neon yellow flats that I have been ogling from Aldo - I thought the extreme neon colour would make me look even more pale than I already am.. Totally doesn't! I love them!

Then my sister knew I loved and badly wanted this Christian Dior perfume. I actually really wanted Hypnotic Poison, but in the store she wasn't entirely sure, so she grabbed this one instead. Not going to lie: I love it! It stayed with me all throughout our adventurous day - she actually did a good thing in buying the "wrong" perfume.. Though I wouldn't say it is wrong anyways. She also bought me this set of bangles because she knows I love them for one, and two, they sort of have a reptile/snake-like air to them - love! AND a bottle of nail polish. We were in Chatters a couple weeks ago, and I had never seen this colour (OPI Metallic 4 Life) swatched.. I wanted it, but had already paid for my other purchases.. Plus I have so many bottles of polish anyways.. Well, she remembered that I liked it. Such a smart girl!

Then my ma bought me my first "real" piece of luggage. My sister and I went on a mini-trip a few months ago for work, and we took the bus to get to this other city. EVERY person on that bus had rolling luggage, except for us - we had the classic duffel bags. We plan on doing some further distance traveling in the next year and a half.. This will definitely help with that. Plus it is a lovely eggplant purple colour - I love it! Ooh, and the lining has a maple leaf pattern.. And there is a maple leaf embossed on the side as well. So good!

Hah! Posting before midnight my time.. This still counts as my birthday post.. I hope everyone enjoyed April 4th as much as I did!!

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!
