31DC2013 - 03 - Yellow + One Gross Nail Break

Hey everyone..

So, I do my challenge day nails a few days in advance - especially at the start.. because the start fell on a long weekend when I had plans made, it is always nice to have a little lee-way, nice to be a bit ahead in case real life comes to haunt you a bit.. etc.

Well. This post will contain a slightly graphic photo of a severe nail break. I mention this because my "long for me" nails will be gone after this post. I was going back and forth about clipping my nails or not because of this nail break.. In the end, I decided to clip them all off. They can grow back. Right?! Anyways, on to the post.

I decided to bust out a rad new glitter polish that was sitting in my untried bag. I knew I'd base my nails in my favourite yellow polish, top it with the glitter, and life would be good. I don't know what is with me and glitter polish lately, but no matter what I do, how long I wait, etc, I keep getting little bubbles show up. UGH. Oh well, such is life.


This is Candy Lacquer Citrus Smoothie over China Glaze Lemon Fizz.. and bubbles. Life ruiners.

And.. the nail break..


Thankfully it isn't on my "photo hand", and now it doesn't hurt.. but for the first 3 days? OUCH!!

How did I do this, you ask.. well.. I went to open a window.. I did not notice that the stick was in the ledge.. I went to slide it open, and I heard this perfect little 'cracking' sound. You all know that the little 'cracking' sound is never a good thing.. I didn't even want to look. But I did. A nice crack basically through the middle of my nail. The worse part? It wouldn't come off. I had to wiggle my nail off. Sigh. That was a traumatic night. My poor ring finger had the shakes for the next day.. Good times.

Well, see you all again tomorrow!!

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!
