Lush Lacquer: Slumber Party, Cruisin 4 a Bruisin, and Snow Globe

Hey everyone!

I received these gems in the mail a couple of weeks ago (I will include links for you to go scope them out and possibly purchase from etsy, where I purchased mine).. and I wanted to use them all in a mani before I posted about any of them. I finally have that task completed.

I think I now have a solid 6 (7?) polish from Lush Lacquer, and I just absolutely love them. I especially like the three I am about to share with you all - so, let's take a little looksie!





We will start with Slumber Party. When I saw THIS post over at Chalkboard Nails, I needed to have this polish so I could wear this combination. And I'm really, really glad I did get my mitts on it.

This polish is a lovely mix of tiny white (matte) circular and square, circular black, circular blue, hex blue, hex purple, and large square pink glitters.

I used two coats of Slumber Party over a coat of Orly Mirror Mirror.. I was going to leave it with one coat (because it did look amazing) - but I wanted more pink square glitter! For some reason that just makes this polish for me. All of the other colours mixed together are swell, but then it is like 'BAM! Pink squares - you're welcome."

I had no trouble applying it either - which is how it usually goes for me and my polish from Lush Lacquer: zero application problems.



Up next is Cruisin 4 a Bruisin - the name alone is awesome - I guess it is pretty great that the polish coincides with the name. When I first opened these gems, I knew I needed to wear Slumber Party immediately, and I told my sister she could wear either this one or Snow Globe, and she went with this one. She painted Essie Mesmerize as her base - now, she said she should have gone with a lighter base - but I thought it still looked quite nifty.

When I went to use it.. I had a minor dilemma: what colour to use as my base? I immediately figured pink.. I thought it would look really 80s-like (I feel I was correct).. Then I was like 'oooh wait, a light blue!'.. When I was collecting a light blue from my shelf, I scoped a yellow and was like 'that could be fun!' I painted each base on a nail wheel, topped them with 2 coats of C4AB and posed a question to my amazing birthday group beauties - and everyone agreed with a colour, or two, or all three. Then I though "ooh, gradient!" but, I wanted to do a gradient right after wearing (aka Friday) and I didn't want to do to two gradients in a row (though there is nothing wrong with that!).. Then it occurred to me: alternate. Duh.

The pink is China Glaze Sugar High, blue is Essie Bikini So Teeny, and the yellow is Sinful Colors Unicorn - all of them topped with 2 coats of C4AB. Fun. 80s-esque.. aka my dream.


Lastly, Snow Globe. Lovely, right? I immediately knew I'd be wearing this over black. It looks amazing. What is not to like? Tiny white glitter, and an array of colourful activity mixed in: hex and squares in red, yellow, blue, purple, pink.. This is 2 coats over China Glaze Liquid Leather.

I loved all of these combos SO much that I made polish earrings out of them.. I took photos, but they all looked rough - I shall try again and edit them in.

I absolutely love these 3 newly acquired Lush Lacquer nail polish gems. Do any of my excellent readers happen to own any LL? Or if you could own any - what would you like to have? I noticed on their etsy page that they have their holiday polish up.. Must. Be. Strong.

Take care until next time everyone!!

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!
