Blued Lines

Hello everyone!!

Today I bring you a post based off of THIS POST aka my favourite thing to do - find amazing photos of awesome nails via pinterest and try to re-create them (re: ruin them) my way. She used tape, and it obviously look stellar.. I didn't use tape.. Because.. Tape and I are enemies and I refuse to put up with his shenanigans!



My line work looks insanely "shotty" in these photos, but I swear, in real life, from a safe distance, they look pretty professional. Ok, from a safe distance and without my glasses or contacts.. (:

I used two coats of OPI Skull & Glossbones as my base, then I used my little brush and some OPI Ogre The Top Blue and China Glaze First Mate.

These are the nails I will be sporting to see City & Colour tonight at the Saskatoon Jazz Fest.. though now that I mention that, I do remember I was going to use the new album as inspiration and paint my nails like the CD. Gosh dangit.. Well.. we will see - I will probably just sport these and do those nails some other time. I'm obviously on par with all of my thoughts these days.

Hope everyone is having a spectacular day - see you again soon!

Ooooh wait! Something to share.. a sneak peek, if you will..

Scope out this bottle shot.. I need to prepare a post all about it.. but I'm super excited.. and you all should be too.. There might be a little giveaway coming my reader's way.. I mean, what? Look at this awesome polish! More details coming 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

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!

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
