Mimosa's Before Mani's Under The Boardwalk

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you two previously untried polish of mine.. and two polish that I think are nothing short of exquisite after using them.

I paired China Glaze Mimosa's Before Mani's with Joyful Noise Cosmetics Under The Boardwalk - separately, I adore both, but together, they are kind of amazing. You'll have to scope and see what I mean. Though I ask of you to please forgive my cuticles. I have been a cuticle cutter for the last.. year? I have now decided to stop clipping/picking at them all the time and just leave them as is. It is going to be a bit of a process, I know.




Mimosa's Before Mani's is a peach-meets-coral colour infused with gold shimmer.. So, basically it is drool-worthy. The first coat was a little iffy, but the second coat evened everything out. It was gorgeous all on its own, but I knew I had to jazz it up some more.

Under The Boardwalk is jam packed with glittery goodness! Various sizes, shapes, colours, even some bar glitter - be still my heart! You can pick that gem up HERE.


I feel this is a perfect summer mani. Simple, yet it definitely packs a punch. I am in serious like with my nails as of right now.

I hope you're all having a great day - and I shall 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

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!

Splatter Floral Nails

Hey everyone! Last night, after I did these nails and when I went to bed - I was quite pleased with my nails. When I woke up this morning, though, I wasn't overly crazy about them. I thought of a few things I could change so that I would really like them.. I am very tempted to take how I want them to look and recreate them before work.. I might just have to do it. Anyways! Really, there is nothing wrong with them.. I just sort of find them.. boring? Ah well! I used: Lime Crime Milky Ways China Glaze White On White OPI My Favourite Ornament China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Sweet Hook OPI Mod About You Formula X For Sephora Infatuated Orly Liquid Vinyl China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I made the roses with a "main" colour and white, then I did the details with the "main" colour and black mixed together. Again, I don't dislike these bad boys.. I am just not amazed by them! Also.. did you
