Sugar Spun

Hey everyone & Happy Canada Day!

So.. textured nails.. textured nail polish.. I wasn't too keen on the whole idea - not because I think it looks bad (it looks rad) but because I know that when I wear rhinestones or studs, etc, I pick at my nails and ruin the whole mani within the span of 24 hours.

I saw this awesome tutorial on The Nailasaurus the other day.. and figured I would actually give this whole sugar spun nails a go. I didn't glob polish on the side of fingers - but maybe I will try that next time..



I didn't pick them all off within 24 hours either.. kind of impressed with myself. I think I have been sporting them for almost 2 days. Yeah. Serious business!

I used butter London Slapper as my base, and then butter London Cheeky Chops for the sugar spun technique. I also used a dotting tool instead of a toothpick..

Thinking back, and knowing that I'd be posting it today.. I should have used red and white.. you know.. for Canada Day. Oops!

Hope everyone is having an awesome day - and I will see you all 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
