Dove & Fully Turqued

Hello everyone!!

Today I bring you two polish that I am insanely excited to share! Plus x 2: I think this pairing is brilliant and the names of these polish are genius!

I will start off with sharing why the polish names are genius. Zoya Dove.. I use 'dove' as a term of endearment for pretty much everyone. I call people 'my dove' or 'my sweet, baby dove', and it seems to make people smile. I adore it. And I (heart) NP Fully Turqued. Okay, I know it is a play on the added turquoise activity in the polish, but it is also a play on being fully torqued aka a line from one of my favourite shows: Workaholics. (I actually discussed it with the creator of I (heart) NP - and that is exactly where she got it from! Yes!)

Enough explanation.. photo time!




Again, I apologize for the dry shape of my mitts. Stupid *insert whatever I am lacking in my life*.

Anyways, this was three coats of Zoya Dove (which was sent in my Private Pumpkin exchange from the wonderful Silver) and a single coat of I (heart) NP Fully Turqued. Love this combo. Though I feel an orange or a pink will be my next base with Fully Turqued. Yeah, it will be magical!

See you all later.. and.. Let's Get Weird!!!

Fully Turqued is amazeballs. I'll never be done lemming. ;p Also can't wait to see it with orange. --0a burnt orange would be really rad. Thanks for showing!

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!
