January Polish Days - Try Something New!

Hey everyone!!

Something a little different to bring to you today.. I came across this 'Polish Days' monthly themed blog participation.. ehm.. thing, and thought that it sounded fun! I had a really long time to figure out a new technique to try, but of course, I'm a master at procrastination and left everything to the very last minute.

Of course, at the last minute, I'm busy.. but I did need to paint my nails for work the next day (aka today).. SO! I figured if I paint my nails with an untried polish, that counts as something new (it even says in the description for the month that you can just use an untried polish).. I stay within the rules AND get to test out a new polish..

And that polish is..

Deborah Lippmann Let's Go Crazy

So, let's!




This is 'Happy Birthday' in a fun grape jelly base.. and I really, really like it! This is two coats.. it dried super quick, I'm happy with it.. All in all, I'd say it is a winner. My last two Lippmann purchases have been awesome in my book! To date, they are the most expensive polish in my collection.. but.. if I have my way (with myself.. that sounds weird.. ummm) I will add a Chanel polish in to my collection next month. I really, really want it. And I'm on a "no-buy" for the rest of this month.. Anyways, I'm babbling!

Make sure to check out the other posts for today - they look gorgeous!

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!
