Day 8: Sally Girl Grape & Nails Inc Special Effects Sloane

Hello everyone!!

Another two for one day.. I think I might have to keep doing this to just get through all of my untrieds.. I feel like this should make me feel bad, but it doesn't at all!!



The Sally Girl polish is actually scented - which is probably why they went with the name "grape" as I feel the colour is not grape-like at all - but that doesn't make it any less lovely! It is more grey-purple-taupe in my eyes. I honestly didn't know it was scented, as it doesn't say anywhere on the bottle.. yet as I was painting my nails I said: I smell grapes.. whaaa? Then it all made sense.

The Nails Inc is from their Special Effects line and it is "3D glitter".. It is really in your face sparkle-y in certain lights - I obviously quite like that! And the base colour is opaque within two coats.. I cannot complain about that!! It is just really gritty. I even topped it with two coats of top coat.. I bet it will be a complete beast to remove. Oh well!

I included the out of focus photo as I feel the glitter give you a taste of how exciting the polish can be when the light hits it.

Hope everyone is prepared for Monday - and that you'll all have a great day! See you tomorrow!!

P.S - remember to head over to Silver's blog to see what she posts up today!!

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

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!

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
