Neon Skulls Turned Unhappy Faces

Hey everyone!

Wow. I have been away from the blogging life for awhile now. I have not enjoyed my "break". Work, work, and living out of the hospital for a week in there has not helped anything. (side note: living at the hospital was not for me.. my boyfriend broke his elbow.. he needed surgery.. we lived in hospital.. well, he did.. I did part time, the other time was spent at work or not sleeping. Good times!)

Anyways.

I have some backlogged posts to get through. During my awful hospital-filled week, I did not paint my nails. I just picked that up again yesterday.. but I believe I have 4 posts to do before we get to the current activity. Should be caught up by the end of next week.. aka.. my birthday! Awe yeah!

I always get so off track.

Many weeks back, as I normally do, I sent a text to my sister asking her what I should paint on my nails. Her response this particular time was for me to do rainbow skulls. The idea = rad, but I have not painted skulls on my own nails in a long time. A nightmare ensued. Then, when all was done, at first - hated them.. but then.. ehhh they weren't too bad and it was 1 am, and work in the morning, etc etc. I left them.

One of the gals at work said they looked like unhappy faces.. and I liked that so much more! My subpar skull nails turned into awesome unhappy face nails. Life miraculously went on.


A wealth of polish was used.. and, much to my happiness and dismay, I have not put any of them away yet. Here goes:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • China Glaze White On White
  • Essie Lights
  • L'Oreal Tangerine Crush
  • China Glaze Sunday Funday
  • China Glaze Lemon Fizz
  • Formula X For Sephora Wham!
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

So bad. So fun.

That is all for today! See you again reeeeal 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
