Kayla Shevonne Inspired Ikat Nails

Hello everyone!

Now, I am no stranger to the excellence that is (are?) ikat nails.. but.. I happened to be reading Kayla's blog yesterday (congrats on the wedding.. if you ever happen to read this!) and I stumbled to her tutorials section. I hadn't decided on how I should do my nails.. and then saw the ikat tutorial. I know how to do them, BUT, the colours she had used for her tutorial instantly clicked with my brain and it was basically a done deal.

Scope her rad tutorial HERE.


I used Lime Crime Crema De Limon as my base colour (yellow), butter London Slapper (teal), China Glaze Liquid Leather (black), and China Glaze White on White. I also used my trusty little nail art brush and topped it all off with some Seche Vite.

I started a new job, and am absolutely loving it. Also, added to the fact that it is great, some of the gals in the office are also in to nail polish! Finally people who don't look at you like you're super crazy when you exclaim that you love nail polish. It is really nice.

One of the girls also inspired a polish purchase the other day. I will do a comparison post at some point. It is basically what I wanted one polish to be - but it is even better. Vague statement is vague.

My life is getting back on track. New job, new place, school is going well.. I figure I can add back my love affair with the polish world again. Expect more from me.. I should be back to regular programming reeeeeal soon. I have missed it.

Take care until next time..

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
