Gloomy, yet fun floral nails

I was going through the blogs on my blogroll yesterday.. err.. two days ago now? And was reading a post over on Kayla's about her reaching 1,000,000 page views (which is amazing - congrats!) and how she is having a little bit of a nail art contest.. The theme is 'floral', and I figured I hadn't done floral nails in awhile - and this was a good excuse to do so!

I'm not even going to lie.. I absolutely love what I did here.. I'm kind of obsessed with my nails right now. I'm not even embarrassed to admit that. I want to go out and show these off.. Awkweird? I don't think so!





I immediately knew I wanted to do something with a grey base for two reasons: one being that it has to be "gloomy" to get flowers to eventually bloom (I am going a bit poetic here..) and secondly, I remembered this post and how much I loved grey and pink together..

After I had the grey and pink dots.. I figured I wanted to go with yellow "flowers".. Rad.. Then I had white to add the floral-y/rose-ish accents.. But I looked at the pink polish again and thought 'why not?!' - I'm glad I did! It really made them pop! Then I did the leaves.. Cool-cool-cool.. But I felt that there was too much "dead space" and my white polish was still sitting in front of me, unused.. Ahh yes, little white dots..

I know there is a lot of activity going on.. But I am seriously in love with these nails of mine.. I'm hoping that they don't chip for another day or two.. I'm going to put off any serious chores til at least Monday (:

I hope everyone is having a great day/afternoon/evening/night and I will be back again with another post soon!!

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
