31DC2014 - Day 2 - Orange

Hello everyone!

Day 2 of #31DC2014 prompts me to do orange nails.. now, in my original map out of ideas, my first five days were fruit/veggie inspired nails.. then.. I stumbled across some of the photos of those beautiful turquoise stone nails.. which quickly made me look at the day 4 prompt of green and say 'sold!'.

Then it occurred to me that the process of making the turquoise stone nails could potentially look rad over other colours.. such as the colour orange. Why not, right?!

Best. Decision. Ever.

I am obsessed with these nails

I started off with a base of my favourite orange, OPI A Roll In The Hague, on all of my nails.


Then I took some China Glaze Midnight Kiss on a bit of cling-wrap and dabbed that on to my nails.


I followed that step with adding a drop of FxFS Dark Matter into some room temperature water, then spritzing some hand sanitizer onto the polish and dipping my finger in.

LOVE! I really like how all the nails turned out.. though the ring finger upset me at first.. but once it was all said and done, I enjoyed its presence with the others. I was actually really displeased to have to remove this. I would have sported this for at least a week!

I can grasp this concept, yet water marble nails are still a myth to me. I am dreading day 20!

See you all again tomorrow!!

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!

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Gross Nails

I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat OPI Coca-Cola Red China Glaze Cranberry Splash KL Polish Snickerdoodle OPI Suzi - The First Lady of Nails OPI My Vampire Is Buff Orly Liquid Vinyl Sponge Dotting Tool Fake Nails These were rather fun to make.. but dangerous! Who knew breaking up fake nails would make them so sharp! Fun! That is all for today! See you tomorrow!
