Day 7: OPI Don't Touch My Tutu! & Rainbow Connection

Hey there everyone!!

Yet another two-fer post.. And this one I am extremely excited about as I think I found a method that I really quite like!!

I finally got to try my hand at the whole 'jelly sandwich' effect.. and, I think it is gorgeous and fun.



I started off with 3 thin coats of Don't Touch My Tutu! followed by a layer of Rainbow Connection, then another coat of DTMT. I liked it, and probably should have stopped there... But, me being me, of course I couldn't! I then layered the whole thing with another coat of RC and a topper of DTMT. I like the extra activity!

When I was done, this really reminded me of my bff - so I had sent her a message telling her such and I even bbm'ed a quick snapshot over. She said it reminded her of birthday cake - which I think is a pretty accurate description!

I have some nubar jelly polish to play with as well - expect another 1-2 jelly sandwich posts from me within the next few days.

7 days out of the 28 already! Time flies!!

Here is a quick overview of what went down with my nails this week.. My favourites.. were the ikat nails - what were yours??

Have a great day everyone - and remember to go check out Silver's blog to see what she posted up for day 7!!

This is so pretty!!! I adore jelly sandwiches especially with the multi coloured glitter like this! I have a NYX dupe of that glitter and I love sandwiching it with this pale pink I have from Essence too! :)

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!
