Metallic 4 Life

This is a polish that my sister bought my for my birthday.. And I love it! I had seen it awhile back and she has remembered me commenting on it (clever girl!) and I am glad that she did. It really doesn't seem THAT exciting.. Black base.. Silver glitter of various sizes.. Ho-hum.. But I kind of feel like it is.. Magical.



I apologize that my nails were a little beat up.. I either take a photo right after painting before clean up time, or too late.. After I have done activities and my nails look like garbage.. I can never "win"!

Anyways, this was 2 coats of OPI Metallic 4 Life.. Then.. On a blog the other day (I went back well over a week in my blog roll and could not find it - she used Lady Muck as a base.. And purple over top.. With striping tape.. Anyone??) - but I was like 'oooh.. I will accent nail this up with the striping tape and Silver Shatter! It will be all criss-cross-y and shatter-y'.. Nah. It didn't shatter.. But I still kind of like it. And I did receive compliments on it from strangers. Mission complete.

I actually have 2 other posts all saved up.. Ahead of the game? What! That is insanity.. Look for another post soon - until then, take care!

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

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
