31DC2014 - Day 22 - Inspired By A Song

Hey everyone!

Right when the #31DC2014 was about to begin, my bff was in Toronto with her sister.. so I sent her a text about a handful of days within the challenge that were, well, basically my kryptonite, and asked for her help. Not only did she give me ideas, but her sister put in some ideas as well.. so now I should be all set to get through the challenge. Did I mention that I love them? And if they happen to peruse this -- love you guys! Thank you!

The idea for this day was to do nails inspired by Nicki Minaj's Anaconda.. perfect! Snake skin nails, I can do that! I actually sat down to watch the video to get ideas for colours. Um, yeow! What a video! Anyways, I decided my palette would be hot pink, black, and gold.

Love.


I started off with a base of FxFS White Matter to help make Orly Neon Heat pop! Then I stamped with FxFS Dark Matter and the BM-215 plate, and followed up with a stamp of Orly Glitz.

These photos do not do these gems justice. I am obsessed with how they turned out! I will definitely sport these again when the challenge is all over!!

See you 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

Hey everyone! Not sure what else to call these.. other than gross.. these are the nails I imagine some sadistic swamp-dwelling mother of mutants to have.. yeah, that. 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!
