Clowning Around

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you a post that I wouldn't normally want to share.. but what has happened has been very strange to me.. and I'm also kind of wondering if it has happened to any one else before.


Notice the bubbles? They didn't show up until day two of wear. Seriously. And, there wasn't too many.. this photo was taken on day four of wear. Lots of bubbling - and, if you look at some of the glitters (like the neon yellow on my pinky) the polish underneath is being eaten away.. Weird?


Again, just all the bubbling. I am not sure what happened.. Or if it was just a bad mix all around? I found this very strange because usually I'm a "speedster" when it comes to nail polish/nail art. I don't ever wait for things to dry. This time, I waited in between coats of the base white, waited for it to dry completely, then added some Clowning Around, then waited for that to dry, and then used my top coat. I don't know if I should try my normal method next time.. So strange. Though from far away, it is adorable and super summer-y.

I used two coats of China Glaze White on White, a coat of Lush Lacquer Clowning Around, and topped it all off with Seche Vite.

Oh, and it looks awesome when glow bowling.


Has this ever happened to any of you? Bubbling a day or two after application? And the polish being eaten away?

Hey - love this look!! How old is your topcoat? I find when my topcoat starts to get a little old and is gumming up a bit, it will cause delayed bubbling. Try some new topcoat for your next mani and it should be ok! I think heat can make that worse too.

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!
