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

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

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!! I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica , SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica . They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!! One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop .. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well. I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a
