Cleopatra In New York

Hey everyone!

Well, first off, Happy New Years eve! Any awesome plans for the night?

I am still not feeling 100% after this almost week-long battle with this nightmare cold, so I don't think I will be going out to celebrate this evening.. whomp-whomp! BUT! I figured my nails still had to be some what fun, even if they were just to wear to work.. I didn't want to put in too much effort though, but, I wanted them to be a base in case I do decide to venture out and can bling them up some more..

Cue one of my new polish babies.. Deborah Lippmann Cleopatra In New York. (LOVE the name!) I own quite a few black with silver polish, but none with gold and black come to mind.. I had wanted to get this one when the DL polish was on sale at nailpolishcanada, but of course - it was sold out! When my siblings and I ventured out to Edmonton, I made it a point to stop in to Murale just so I could snap this colour up. Mission: accomplished!


Black jelly-esque base, two different sizes of gold glitter.. what isn't to enjoy? This was two coats without a base. I feel it worked out quite well. Plus, it will be easy to add more activity to this should I decide I'm well enough to venture out (probably won't happen, but you never know!)

Anyways, thank you all for sticking with me through 2012.. shall we see what 2013 has in store? Happy New Year!!

@ Sarah - Me too! It is really sad to know that I really never do it and didn't own anything like this before. Must make up for lost time!

@ Brittney - Thank you, same to you (if you happen to ever see this!) I am currently winning the battle versus this cold!!

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!
