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

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!

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
