These Nails Are Bananas - Take: Blue!

I saw that someone pinned my Banana Nails the other day. I loved seeing them again. I had forgotten about them.

Queue to Saturday afternoon. I was searching around the internet for some yellow nail inspiration.. I just really wanted yellow nails.. and I wasn't set on any particular idea. Then I stumbled across this POST and I was like 'oommmgggggg Banana nails with a BLUE background.. YEX!!!' So I did them, immediately.


I used OPI No Room For The Blues as a base, then I went on to use two yellows for the bananas: Butter London Cheeky Chops & Joe Fresh Butter, then I used some Orly Liquid Vinyl for the black details. I love these sosososososo much. Who wouldn't be jazzed about life to have bananas on their fingers?!

See you all later!!

Looking around your blog here for options to follow other than on the Google dashboard and don't see any. Wishing I had your email addy but not listed here either so posting here - you can take this down later...would love to see you add the Blogger widget for email subscriptions. I never get time to go to my dashboard and wade through - ditto on Bloglovin etc. I know a lot of folks who have no idea how to use any RSS kind of feed and would not 'get' dashboards either but they all follow their email...be great to add that as an option. I only stumbled on you when I happened to look at someone's blog roll and timing was right - yours appeared. Not sure how I will find my way back to check to see if you added the email widget..will try to book mark this and check back. Oh - I don't get through FB either - my account is jammed with indi musicians I work with and follow and I miss about 98% of that in the news feed too. But as said, I can work away at email all day long off/on and always get through it eventually. Good luck with the rest of your schooling - good field to go into. I work as a clinical laboratory scientist in microbiology...health care fields have jobs!

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!
