Day 9: Essie Fiji, NYX Dynamic Glitter, and Wet n Wild Stars & Stripes

Yes, you have read that correctly: a 3 for 1 deal.. and I am not going to lie, this is extremely cutesy and girly and lovely.

I pinned a photo of this POST from Neverland Nail Blog - and I think she got it from somewhere else.. and.. well, where ever this did originate from - you're a genius!

I loved the purple.. and I happen to have a lovely lilac purple to use from my untrieds.. but I didn't have any purple glitter (that I felt was good enough to use)..

As I was perusing what I could use.. I spotted Essie Fiji.. Yup, I wanted to use that adorable pink. Sitting close by was NYX Dynamic Glitter.. Hey, awesome! I will do another glitter accent mani - nbD - two birds, one stone. I was jazzed about life. Then I was scrolling through pinterest.. saw the mani again and I thought.. why not do it with the pinks?! AND GET STAR GLITTER FROM WnW STARS & STRIPES! kjhbkxjdgfhkdjg.. I have momentary spells of genius-dome.



Adorable, right?!

I did 3 thin coats of Fiji, then I used one of my trusty little brushes to do some "swipes" of Dynamic Glitter, then I used a dotting tool to pick up just the stars from Stars & Stripes. Perfection.

I abso-freaking-lutely love these! It is going to be a sad day for baseball when I have to change things up tomorrow. Le sigh. Thems the breaks, right?

Remember to scope out Silver's BLOG to see what she has posted up for today!!

P.S - This is my 300th post. 300th!! Yay!!

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!
