My Birthday Shindig Nails

For my birthday shindig, which was last Saturday.. I already knew what I was wearing clothing-wise, but I wanted something that was sort of matchy.. Because I wanted to use Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday as my accent..

Then Butter London Trout Pout came in to my life. I honestly could not be happier!! It is an amazing colour by an excellent brand. I actually think Butter London is quickly climbing to the top of my favourites list.. Which is great and sad - mostly for my wallet. That weeping you hear - yeah, my wallet.

Though, as most people say: you get what you pay for. Yes, I have to shell out for cash for the Butter London, and I believe I get less in the bottle compared to other brands, but, I love it. The formula is perfection.. I have a few more on the way.. I think my eyes just glazed over.

Enough with that hmmm.. I do apologize.. These photos were taken the day AFTER my shindig.. There was some intense games of quarters going on.. My nails are a little hurting, but you can get the general idea of this simple mani.



I actually HAD to order a few more that I've been wanting lately because the Canadian website recently launched the 'lippy's and I knew I needed the trout pout gloss.. and another polish (or 3.. yikes!)

Take care til next time (:

OH! And.. Happy Friday the 13th! I am going to be spending the evening with my bff.. I'm hoping that means that something awesome will happen to us because of this day.. Here's to hoping, right?!

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

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!

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
