The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2014

Hey everyone!

I know I have been a smidge absent lately, but I am gearing up for some intense postage, yes, that is correct - I am going to give another go at The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I have tried a few times over the past year, and if my memory serves me correctly.. I don't think I have ever successfully completed it. 2014 is my year! At least that is the mind set I am going with. I am quite looking forward to it this time.. also.. I am trying to be super organized as September is going to be a very busy month -- increase in work hours, a couple weddings (a few? there is 3.. 2 on the same day) and I am sure some party activities in there as well. Phew. It will all be worth it! And, like I said, I am trying to be organized - I have been doing some drawings to give me ideas for the actual days. Yay!

If you're interested in doing it as well, or just want to scope the layout, check out the photo. I know for sure Chalkboard Nails is doing it, and probably a wealth of others!…

Who Doesn't Love Splatter Nails?

Seriously.. I want names!

Hey everyone!

Today I bring to you one of my favourite methods of nail-art-doage... yeah: splatter!

I used:

Sally Hansen Pacific Blue
China Glaze The Grass Is Lime Greener
Orly Neon Heat
Essie No Place Like Chrome
and a straw


I really like these gems. And splatter is just so much fun.. can be a touch messy, but always fun!

Have a great day, and I shall see you all again real soon!

Duri Rejuvacote Review

Hey everyone!

This post has been a long time coming, so, better now then, well, later!

Anyways. 

In mid June, my nails were in crisis mode. How they got to that state, I have no idea, I had not really changed anything with, well, anything. Yet my nails were straight from some demonic possession movie. They were splitting, chipping, infected, angry. Basically they were disgusting. 

Late June, I was mentioning it to my coworkers.. and low and behold, not even 2 hours later, I had an e-mail from a rep at Nail Polish Canada asking me if I wanted to review Duri Rejuvacote, and I quote: "Duri Rejuvacote is an award-winning nail growth treatment that's known to heal split, cracked, damaged nails within a few weeks. It helps you get naturally strong, healthy nails and can be applied as a base coat or top coat."

It was almost as if I had some sort of wire on.. these were the exact problems I had just been complaining about. Of course I immediately fired an e-mail back saying I would h…
