Day 3: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark & Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals

Hello everyone!

Day 3.. Silver and I actually did a touch of collaborating today.. Because we're that awesome!!

She said 'purple' and I said 'yup' - well, it sort of went like that.. Which means I had to slightly cheat and actually dig through the bag, but I'm sure that can be forgiven!!

I grabbed LPAD immediately - I knew I wanted to use that gem. I used to own a mini of it - but I never did get to use it.. When I finally had a chance to grab a bottle of it, I did. I hear about it so often that I figured I should just own it. (Side note: fantastic purchase!!)

As I was putting the other polish back that had to be moved out for me to have some digging room, I realized I was holding on to WnW Back Alley Deals.. It is a purple and fuchsia glitter. My immediate thought: accent nail. Secondary thought: the cool kid taped accent nail that Silver did on her day 1. Yes and yes!


Ok, me and tape mani activity don't get along very well, so I'm extremely pleased with how this turned out! I might even get crazy with a design next time.. Woah - head rush.. better settle down here!!

Pictures and a gif cannot do this glittery bad boy justice!


The super inky purple of LPAD with the super fun-ness of BAD is just.. fantastic together. As I type this I keep clawing my hand to just catch the glitter in different light. I am enjoying this a bit too much.

I should also mention that BAD was a gift from Collette who is a member of my birthday group.. It is just exceptional and I'm forever grateful to her for adding it to my collection!!

I hope you'll have a great day - see you for day 4!!

P.S - Remember to scope Silver's blog to see what she has going on for day 3!!

P.P.S - I got to do nails for S on Monday. She chose the whale nails that I did that I originally found from MAD Manis.. Hers ended up looking less psychotic than mine - a very good thing! S, if you're reading this - I hope your first day of school went well and that your nails are holding up nicely!! Thank you for the goodies - I LOVE THE EARRINGS!!

The whale nails are SO CUTE!

I've had Back Alley Deals for like, a year now and I don't think I've ever got around to using it. Better change that!

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!
