The Totally Doable I Have A Life Challenge! Feb 11: Pastel

Hey everyone! Getting this post up late because.. well.. I don't really have a good excuse. I did these nails a couple days ago.. I just didn't take photos and edit them until now. So. Pure laziness? Zoiks. This pastel day screamed for the use of a ziploc bag, so that is exactly what I did. And here are the results..  I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat China Glaze Lemon Fizz Lime Crime Lavendairy Lime Crime Once In A Blue Mousse Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat Ziploc bag, cut into small squares I really like using the little ziploc squares to create this faux-marble kind of effect. Although I have some chips in my nails.. I think I will leave them. Also. I have no idea how to match my nails to my OOTD for the 14th. Sigh. This could be interesting. Or maybe just a 'miss' day, but still.. I will post something! Until then, take care!

The Totally Doable I Have A Life Challenge! Feb 9: Hearts

Hey everyone! I am just squeaking in with this entry. I really have to pay attention to dates more. Maybe I will learn that soon.. yeah.. right.. better luck next year! Super quick.. and this is also going to my entry for the contest at Nail Polish Canada . If you can spare a moment - you should go scope out the entrants and toss in a vote!! I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat China Glaze With Love Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat In my mind, this looked waaay cooler. It was a heart-take on the interlocking dot mani. Kind of a bit of a fail.. but I think the idea would still work.. I just need to come up with a better way to execute it. I think I started to get it more at the end when I did my thumb.. but it is not quite perfect. Darn! Have a great day everyone - and see you soon!

The Totally Doable I Have A Life Challenge! Feb 7: XOXO

Hey everyone! Does anyone else think 'Gossip Girl' when you see/hear XOXO.. no? Yes? Please?! Well, that is what I think. That, and I also started rewatching GG as of Wednesday evening. I have missed that gem show tremendously! Anyways.. I kind of completely spaced out that today XOXO nails had to be done. Whoops! You get my 15 min from start to finish nails for today. I know I saw this idea somewhere on the internet the other day.. I forgot to save the image, and of course when I went back to look for it, I cannot find it. But. Someone will recognize this design and let me know who originated it.. so I can toss a link somewhere here, si vous plait! I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat a england Guinevere OPI Lincoln Park After Dark And that is it.. no top coat.. no nothing else.. well, ok, a little brush. Quick and to the point. XOXO nails. Now I am going to go make something to nom on whilst I watch GG before I have to get ready for work. Soli

The Totally Doable I Have A Life Challenge! Feb 4: Dots

Hey everyone! For this day of the challenge, it says it is polka dots day.. sooo.. basically my favourite day, EVER! I had a photo sitting in my inspiration bin - simple dot mani using an array of colours. Of course I needed to replicate it. I do not know where the original photo is from - probably from one of the many magazine scans that I used to have on my computer. This particular image made the cut when I decided to purge my serious photo collection. Side note: if anyone recognizes the image and knows exactly where it is from - let me know so I can give some proper credit! Anyways. Now, I know the image shows pastel colours - and pastel colours are amazing.. but.. I am more of a vibrant polish kind of gal. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat China Glaze Lemon Fizz China Glaze Sweet Hook Essie In The Cab-Ana China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Bottoms Up A dotting tool Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat That is it for today.. I will see

The Totally Doable I have A Life: February Nail Art Challenge 01: Glitter

Hey everyone! The other day, while perusing through instagram, I saw that Rie of Nails And Noms had posted a photo about this February nail art challenge created by Californails (side note: I was not familiar with her before.. and now I might be kind of obsessed! Amazing blog! Scope it out!!).. I kind of glanced through it.. and then glanced at my nails. After doing some fairly intricate nail activity, only to have it ruined 2 hours later at work, I happened to be sporting a simple mani with glitter accent nails.. what is day 1? Glitter! It was overly fitting. I obviously meant to have this posted up yesterday, but in the past 48 hours, I have worked more than I had time to sleep or just 'relax', so getting photos and a post up wasn't in my cards until today - I do apologize. My friend Porter was over the other night.. and whipped off her sock to show me her pedi colour - and she asked if I knew what it was. She said the name was 'Suzy' something - OPI
