Blue, Dots, Gold, Oh My!

Hello everyone!

I have had these photos edited and tossed to the side for at least two weeks meow. Why? Well, because my cuticles are so freaking dry that I thought it was just too gross to post. I don't even know how they photographed looking that awful - I honestly don't remember them being so awful. Must have been a really "off" day. This is your warning. My cuticles look rough, but the nails are too adorable to not post.

A little while back, I came across this POST over at Little Nails, and I loved the idea of having your base colour coated over with some gold leaf and then put dots on top of that - genius!



I used a base of China Glaze Sunday Funday, then I used my own handmade gold leaf top coat, and followed that with some fun time dots using China Glaze Lemon Fizz. I love this combo of not only polish, but of design - it is so fun! And it makes the dots look 3D.

Despite my super dry cuticles, I figured the greatness of this whole look would outweigh it.. maybe? Please?

I look forward to doing this with other colour combos - it is just delightful!

Have a fabulous day 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
