Laid Back 31 DC - Day 6 - Favourite Colour Family

Hello everyone!

Day 6.. favourite colour family.. now, I know what some of you (who have been followers for awhile) will expect me to go with greens.. because, well, green is my favourite colour. This is a true fact. BUT. In the nail polish world.. my favourite colour family.. is.. BLUE. I have yet to come across a blue polish that I don't like. True story. I feel like all the shades compliment my near translucent, pale skin. 

I followed (sort of) this awesome TUTORIAL to create my blue fishtail nails. Oh, and I love them.




Products Used:
Nail Life Gripper (base coat)
Essie Bikini So Teeny
OPI No Room For The Blues
Nails Inc. Baker Street
Poshe Top Coat




I really, really like this.. especially on my recently shortened nails. It makes them look pretty awesome (if I do say so myself)

I actually look forward to doing this a bunch of times with other colour combos. This is fun and easy to do - but it looks like it is a lot of work. Those are the best kind of manis!

Take care everyone - see you again soon!

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

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
