Bahama Mama & The God of Destiny

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you Essie Bahama Mama with some accents of Rainbow Honey The God of Destiny..

Many of my favourite youtubers have been mentioning Essie Bahama Mama.. So when I stumbled across it at the store, I immediately purchased it. I love Essie polish.. but I think this is the first one (formulation wise) that I haven't been in love with. It is extremely runny.. I have never had that with an Essie polish before. Maybe it will be better.. who knows.. AND! For such a "dark" colour, it took three coats before it was even deciding to be opaque. In my mind, it is very similar to OPI Miami Beet.. I will have to compare.. I would much rather use Miami Beet if I want this particular shade on my mitts again. Dangit!

THEN! I got my new set of Rainbow Honey's Chrono Cross Collection in the other week.. I was going to swatch them all and do a big review post, but I figure I will just use them and show you how I am actually wearing them, and then maybe do a big ol' post at the end showing them all off. Yeah, that sounds good!


One thing I will say about Bahama Mama.. It is really, really glossy! Even without topcoat.. I guess it does have some redeeming qualities. 3 coats of Essie Bahama Mama (4 on some of my fingers..), then 3 coats of Rainbow Honey The God of Destiny on my middle and ring fingers.

Super simple, but a nice way to showcase some glitter. I like the combo!

See you all again very soon!!

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!
