Saran Wrap Leopard

Or cheetah.. I never really know what to call the print.. Anyways - hello everyone!!

On Friday night I was feeling pretty good - I figured I would do some water marbling using my AMAZING Lime Crime polish.. As the last time I used them all, I forgot to take photos before it was all wrecked and disturbing. SO! Water marbling and I are not good friends, and we are going to remain that way for at least another week or three (until I try again).

My right hand (the hand I started with) looked AWESOME! I have never had something that actually resembles the marble action, and it finally did. Things were looking up. Started working on my left hand.. Disaster city. It looked like someone had mixed all the polish together and maybe just vomited on my nails. Upsetting.

Then I decided to paint my nails all different colours and do the saran wrap technique.. Though I didn't let the base dry enough - so I had bald patches.. Ugh. Ahh yes, easily covered up with some leopard/cheetah activity. Sigh of relief. Many a-compliments ensued.. So all of my "fails" helped to lead to a success.


As I said before, these are using my Lime Crime polish.. Now to break down what each finger is..

Thumb: Parfait Day (base) with Crema De Limon
Index: Peaches "heart" Cream (base) with Lavendairy
Middle: Creama De Limon (base) with Pastelchio
Ring: Lavendairy (base) with Once In A Blue Mousse
Pinky: Pastelchio (base) with Peaches "heart" Cream

All of the work is done using my little brush-lette and Orly Liquid Vinyl.

The only polish not shown on these nails is Milky Ways, which I had used on my other hand.. I guess I could just start taking photos of both hands when it is a mixed mani like this - noted!!

I ordered all of these gems from HERE - it helps if you have awesome friends in the US who are willing to help you out when it is something that doesn't ship to Canada (thankies Ro)

I actually really like all of these.. They could all almost be one coaters, the colours are amazing - and they are all bright, yet pastel. Love.

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!
