Gold Fingers

..Sort of?

I saw this post on Chalkboard Nails (I was linked there by my pal Silverinator), and I knew I had to get my mitts on that top coat. I am really, really thankful for my birthday group (more on the lovely people in that group soon!) right meow, because I was able to use an address of one of the members (thankies Ro!!), then she sent it onwards to me. It sort of sounds like a bit of work - but I'm going to say it was completely worth the work! Most of which I didn't have to do.. Just had to do the paying (:




On chalkboard nails, she used a turquoise base, and I thought it looked stunning.. But she also said it looked badass when used over black.. No brainer!! I used Orly Liquid Vinyl and Essie Turquoise & Caicos followed with some Gold Leaf top coat.

I. Really. Love. This.

It is beyond simple, but that gold top coat takes it just a smidge on the edgy side, and I think it looks 'badass'.

There is a link to an e-mail address to get in to contact with the creator of this top coat.. I am not entirely sure if she still has some available - but if you're a person that just wants your polish to go one step further, you should really try to get your hands on this! And the bottle sticker is kind of amazing also.

I actually received more fun nail mail to play with.. AND.. I may have started to get goodies for a giveaway.. I see I am getting MIGHTY close to 400.. SAY WHAT?!

Well, that is all for now - take care until next time!

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!

Splatter Floral Nails

Hey everyone! Last night, after I did these nails and when I went to bed - I was quite pleased with my nails. When I woke up this morning, though, I wasn't overly crazy about them. I thought of a few things I could change so that I would really like them.. I am very tempted to take how I want them to look and recreate them before work.. I might just have to do it. Anyways! Really, there is nothing wrong with them.. I just sort of find them.. boring? Ah well! I used: Lime Crime Milky Ways China Glaze White On White OPI My Favourite Ornament China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Sweet Hook OPI Mod About You Formula X For Sephora Infatuated Orly Liquid Vinyl China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I made the roses with a "main" colour and white, then I did the details with the "main" colour and black mixed together. Again, I don't dislike these bad boys.. I am just not amazed by them! Also.. did you
