Chanel Malice

Hey everyone!

Today is just a "swatch" post. A couple of weeks back.. I had to make a rather difficult decision to have one of my pet rabbit's put to sleep. It was an awful day, and an awful experience (though the vet and his assistant were absolutely lovely people - so their decency was very appreciated).

She would have been 10 years old in March. It hurt even more because she was born in this house, and now.. she is no longer around.. There is just her brother left from the group of five babies, and, well, there is Bennie, but he doesn't count for anything *grin*

The next day, while scoping out things on the internet.. I came across a site that was selling Chanel Malice.. A colour that I have been wanting ever since seeing a swatch of it.. But I had held off.. until the day after my sweet baby girl's death.. In a moment of absolute weakness, I ordered the polish.



When it arrived, it was a bittersweet moment. Here was a polish that I desperately wanted! Yet to justify my buying it, I was an emotional wreck. I obviously needed to put it on pretty quick.. I wasn't disappointed.

Nail Life Gripper
Chanel Malice
Cult Nails Wicked Fast



Le. Sigh. It is just exceptional. I wore this all on its own, and I received SO MANY compliments on it.. It is that captivating of a colour..

Yes, it is the most expensive polish I own (hopefully ever.. it was rough realizing what I had paid after escaping my emotion stupor) and I wish that I could say that it wasn't worth the price, that it was horrible formulation, that it was awful.. I'm sorry, my doves, I cannot. This was exquisite in every sense of the word. It applied like a dream (could have been a one coater - but you know meee!!), the brush was great, it dried wicked fast, it wasn't runny or too thick, just a real treat of a nail polish!

Now, I would be happy to add more Chanel to my collection, but it will be pretty difficult to fork about that much cash for a nail polish.. it will have to be pretty special!

Have a great Monday everyone!!

I am so sorry for your loss. I recently lost my rooster too on 22 january after 3 days of illness :( It was terrible, i tried so much to save him but he was in so much pain . Anyways coming back to the nail polish it is beautiful and a nice buy . Normally when i do impulsive buying i usually regret them after a while

My condolences. We lost a pair of our house rabbits this year, both due to old age. When our bunnies live long lives with us, we rejoice, but it makes their leaving even harder

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!
