Colourful Plaid Tutorial

Hello everyone!

As promised, I bring you the photo tutorial for my colourful plaid nails.. I apologize in advance.. while taking the photos, I only snapped ONE photo of each step. I never only photograph my nails once.. so I have no idea why I thought one photo of every step would suffice. I FAIL! But. Despite some of the fuzziness of the photos, I think you will all be able to understand what to do.

Shall we?

 


Just a reminder of what we are doing..


You don't have to use the exact same colours I used.. You can use any colours you have on hand, or colours that you love having together. I knew that I wanted to use the blue and pink from Pop Art and decided to go with another bright and contrasting colour, which is why I chose yellow. I also added the black and white as colours that sort of tie the whole look together. For even more fun, just use all different colours rather than play it safe with shades.



Start with your base colour. I used the blue side from Revlon Pop Art.




Then add four lines with your next colour. I used Zoya Pippa.




Next add two lines, one in the middle of the nail, and then one intersecting just below the "middle" of your nail. I used the pink side from Revlon Pop Art.




Next we are basically doing the same step as last time. A thinner line just off of the middle of the nail, with a line intersecting just above the "middle" of your nail. I used Orly Liquid Vinyl.




Last step is adding some white "flick dots", they aren't quite dots, and they aren't quite lines.. they are.. flicks! I add them across the pink lines, and I used Orly White Out.


I hope this has been somewhat educational.. and that you give this look a try! If you do, I would love to see them! Have fun - and I will see you all again soon!!

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

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

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
