Pastel, Dots + Flowers

Hey everyone!

I went seeking advice via my FB page the other day aka a week or two ago (yikes!) and asked for suggestions. A local pal suggested spring nails, as in pastels and flowers as we started to see spring-ish weather at the time.. then it snowed for a few more days.. anyways, that is besides the point.

I took her suggestion and did pastel nails, dots, and then flowers - I used a different technique this time.. not sure if I am totally jazzed about the results - I think I will want to tweak that method a touch or three.


I used:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI What's With The Cattitude?
  • Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink
  • China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint
  • China Glaze Lemon Fizz
  • China Glaze Sweet Hook
  • China Glaze Sunday Funday
  • OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue
  • China Glaze White on White
  • OPI Jade Is The New Black
  • China Glaze Gaga For Green
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

PHEW! Oh, right, I also used a dotting tool annnnd a tiny brush. I did really love this idea.. but my flowers and leaves aren't desirable in my eyes. I will get it right next time.. right?!

Take care until next time!!

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!
