The Baker Street Mix

Hey everyone!

It is no secret that I love blue nail polish - I am positive I have shared that fun fact many a-times.. (you know.. how green (any shade, ever) is my favourite colour, but in the nail polish world, I cannot turn down a blue!) that is still how it goes - BUT - I think Nails Inc. Baker Street is my favourite blue polish: 1. It is blue and 2. It is called Baker Street - hello?! Sherlock Holmes reference.. genius! I rest my case.

I came across this gem PHOTO via pinterest awhile back.. and thought that it would be a perfect recreation so I could bust out Baker Street.. and then I was like.. why not use some of my other top fave polishes?! Swell!


And these beauties were born. I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • China Glaze White on White
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament (phew - I wrote it without using 'u'.. that was unbelievably difficult, lemme tell ya..)
  • Nails Inc. Baker Street
  • Dotting Tool
  • Poshe Top Coat

I switched up my top coat this time - I was having trouble with same-day chipping while using my beloved Seche Vite - I am hoping it is just a bad bottle or something.. I have never had a problem with it before. This combo of base and top coat gave me zero chipping - I wore these for five days before I even started to have tip wear. Good times!

I will see you all again real soon with another fun recreation - I already have it picked out.. but I am having an internal debate. I have work in a few hours, and I have naked nails.. but there is a wealth of cleaning I want to do after work.. so it doesn't make sense to polish my nails now.. but I hate having naked nails. Sigh. The dilemmas we must face..

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
