Faux Christmas Marble

Or maybe faux needle drag mani? I really am not too sure. It is faux Christmas something or other..

Anyways..

Hello everyone!

I went to work with bare nails the other day, and my favourite table of resident's were giving me a hard time - especially since my main critic had her nails painted a sassy pink! I told them it was their fault for not telling me how to do my nails (they toss me ideas from time to time and I will come in the next day with one of their colour choices) - so of course one lady said 'green and red, because it is Christmas time!' No problem.

But what to do?

I had not idea. Dots? Cool.. Lines? Rad.. What about a huge mix? Yes.


 This was it after two days (I forgot to snag a photo before that!) I just painted strips of green, red, and white. The green is China Glaze Gaga For Green, the white is Orly White Out, and the red is China Glaze With Love - then once I had the strips painted, I grabbed a small dotting tool and just alternated grabbing polish from either side.. I still think my thumb and index finger look the most interesting.

But.

I wasn't quite done with this..



I had to add some Christmas glitter vomit. This is a quick coat of China Glaze Party Hearty. Yeah, it made it a lot more fun. The ladies agreed today. My harshest critic said it was 'lovely'.. Great lady!!

Ok. Enough study procrastination here. Have a great night everyone!!

EDIT: While scrolling through pinterest, I came across THIS mani - same idea, though her look is amazing and mine pales in comparison, I'm still pleased with my faux work..

I like it!! The glitter is the perfect touch too, I think glitter always makes marbled manis look 100% more awesome! :D

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

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!! I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica , SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica . They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!! One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop .. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well. I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
