Lights, Camera? Pirouette My Whistle!

Lights, yes, Camera? Nah.. Well, I took the photos with a camera.. Technically? And Pirouette My Whistle.. Yeah. I honestly am the most loser-y person I know most days.. Moving on..

I picked Essie Lights the other day and was EXTREMELY excited about it.. It just looked so jazzed up and amazing in the bottle.. And I'm on a strange kick/fascination with all things neon lately.. It lived up to my expectations.

During that same shopping trip, I grabbed a couple of polish from the OPI Ballet collection.. Even though I wasn't too thrilled by the whole collection, seeing these two gems in person made me really, really want them! One of the pair that I nabbed is Piroutte My Whistle.

I had been playing with some nail wheels.. And had PMW over Lights.. And immediately I took off what I was sporting and slapped these gems on. It was basically like having heaven on display on my nails for a few days. Yeah, these two together made me THAT happy.



Ahh yes.. and looking at these photos - this was also the day I clipped down my nails again. I just love me some short nails! I apologize for not including my index finger in the shot.. I clipped it out.. That finger was covered in green nail polish.. I was working on something (:

This was actually Essie Lights over Orly White Out (I prefer to put neons on over a base of white.. I feel it makes them look more awesome and opaque!), then a coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle. I seriously love this and almost want to just do this again. Actually, maybe it will be my next pedicure!

That is all for today - see you all again real 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
