Day 4: OPI Color So Hot It Berns

Hey everyone!

Sorry my post today is a little bit later than usual! It has been a whirl wind, slightly suck fest-y, kind of a day.. Up until now, that is!

I stayed up too late last night to make up my blog post for the morning (we are working our way through the first season of American Horror Story.. Does anyone that reads this blog watch that show?! SO GOOD!!!) - so I decided to snag all the sleep I could, wake up, take photos, and write a blog post all before work. Absolutely no problem there! I woke up feeling well rested for having less than 5 hours of sleep. Was ready within 10 minutes - leaving myself 20 minutes to take the photos and write the post!

15 mins and change left to write up the post.. My computer had restarted itself in the night. Lately, when my sweet baby computer restarts, it goes to a boot screen and my nightmare. I kept trying to restart in to safe mode to run a file check so that maybe by the time I was home from work, my love would be up and running again. What did I see instead: the blue screen of death. Whomp whomp!

Thankfully one of my mom's awesome friends gave us the name of her "computer guy" - my mom contacted him while I was at work - when I got home, we took the computer to him - he ran diagnostics - found out my hard drive is dying.. get a new hard drive - and he will get back to me once everything is up and running again. He says I shouldn't lose anything. FINGERS. CROSSED!

Sorry for the novel beginning.. My day was a nightmare that is now starting to not be SO bad! But my post is 12 hours later than I wanted it to be. Oh well, such is life!!



Ohh boy  - a treat (sort of!) usually you just get photos of my left hand as it usually turns out looking better.. heavy on the usually - this time I really felt that my right hand looked better! Top is my left hand, bottom is the right. Now, this isn't very good ikat activity, but I tried!

The red base, which is my new favourite red, is OPI Color So Hot It Berns, the white is China Glaze White on White, grey is Orly Mirror Mirror, and the black is Orly Liquid Vinyl.

Of course, on MY COMPUTER which is currently knocking at death's door (though it isn't going to be answered), I had all the links I wanted to share about the mani inspiration - I did some looking.. Ok, the youtube video link is THIS, and the photo link is THIS. Look at all the work I go through for all of you amazing people (:

I had many comments on this - mostly compliments, though one person told me they remind her of Dead Pool and that they are scary. I take that as a compliment as well, so, all compliments!!

That is all for today. I hope I will have my sweet baby back tomorrow and that I will get my schedule back on track.. Or close to it! Hope you enjoyed day 4 - see you back for day 5!!

P.S - remember to scope out Silver's blog to see what she used for day 4!!

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!
