A Whale Of A Good Time

I am a HUGE fan of the nail art over at Mad Manis and have a wealth of their work saved in my inspiration folder. The other night as I was perusing through, I saw my saved photo of the Whale mani, and knew that is exactly what I had to copy!



Ok, now, I really love them.. BUT.. I kind of feel like they are more like psychotic killing whales.. They have that crazy look in their eyes! I'm also really glad that people seemed to know what they were.. They actually sort of remind me of 'Boo' from the Mario games.. Sort of.

I used China Glaze First Mate, OPI No Room For The Blues, Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink, Orly White Out, Orly Liquid Vinyl, and a dotting tool that I received from Born Pretty.

Oh, and as I write this, Ben is ringing his 'attention' bell (we call it something else, but that is kind of inappropriate, so I will save you all from having to hear what it is really called). It must mean he wants me to share a new photo of him with all of you.


Bennie, well, degus in general, have an affinity for shiny items. Apparently nail polish with some shimmer is no different. He tried to steal this and put it in his man cave. Don't worry though, I saved the polish!

Have an awesome Wednesday everyone! See you again soon..

They do look rather psychotic. In a very good way, of course!

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!
