Squares

I stumbled across an image on this tumblr (it was on page 2 during my search) and I instantly saved the image and could not get it out of my mind.. Then I remembered I had some new Butter London (seriously, I feel like they should just create the polish line at my place.. so I can test them all out first.. That is how much I love them!) polish that I had my eyes on to use!!



I used Butter London Cheeky Chops (yellow) and Slapper.. I have said this before, and I will say it again right now.. I freaking love Butter London nail polish. I know it is a bit on the pricey side, but seriously.. So worth it! The only one that I have that I am not in love with is 'No More Waity, Katie'. If you're thinking about getting one or five - please do yourself a favour and get it/them, you will love this brand. Ok, I will stop my fangirling there!

You might have noticed that I clipped down my nails. They were all doing fine, no breaks or chips on EITHER hand, but I had a moment of, well, whatever, grabbed the clippers and nipped them down. There is just something about short nails that I love!

I also got to do something fun on Friday evening before date night with my 'bff' - I got to do 3 sets of nails at a little get-together/going away party. So, 'S', if you're reading this - I hope you and your friends enjoyed your nails and that they survived through the weekend! I had fun doing the nails - and it was kind of crazy. I'm used to doing one set of nails.. But three? Insanity, but a good time none the less.

Ooh, and I had mentioned some untried Butter London polish.. Well, two of them are now tried, but anyways..


This is Lady Muck, Cheeky Chops, The Black Knight (I always want to write 'The Dark Knight' - curse you Batman!) and Slapper. I also recently "acquired" Branwen's Feather, but that will be coming up in a different post at a different time - how ominous!

I hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday - it is time for me to go and hit the books some more. Exam tomorrow. Yikes!

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!
