Pineapple Mani + Summer Nail Art Challenge Entry

Hey everyone!

I came across a tutorial for some seriously adorable nails.. and I knew I had to copy them immediately because the nails featured pineapples, and to me, pineapples scream summer.. and.. well, it is summer right now, so, it was basically the perfect time. Makes sense, right?!

I followed THIS TUTORIAL for the most part.. kind of took my own spin, but that is usually how that works, for me anyways..

Then, once they were done, I thought to myself: 'there is too much blank space', and I quickly added in some pink dots. Perfection!


I used:

  • Duri Rejuvacote (base coat)
  • China Glaze Sweet Hook
  • Sally Hanse Pacific Blue
  • Lime Crime Once In A Blue Mousse
  • China Glaze Fairy Dust
  • Fan Brush
  • HK Girl Glisten & Glow
Also, the day I was first sporting these nails, I got a message from Nail Polish Canada about a Summer Nail Art Challenge - ahh fitting, these are a perfect entry for that! Two birds, meet one stone.

I did receive sooo many compliments on these nails! I even received a few comments asking if they were jamberry nails, and then when they found out I did them myself, they were sad because they wanted to order them. Ahh.. good times!

That is all for now -- see you all again soon!!

P.S -- if you have looked at these and thought 'hey, these are actually quite cute!' then maybe you could spare another moment, head on over HERE, and give me a little vote-ski? That would be rad!

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

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

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!
