31DC2014 - Day 3 - Yellow

Hey everyone!

For day 3 of the #31DC2014, the prompt is: yellow. Yellow is one of favourite nail polish colours.. it only gets trumped by blue.. so.. obviously I grabbed every yellow from my shelf and just looked at them. Now, I am not sure if anyone else is like this, but one of the first things that I think of when I want to work with yellow nail polish is: bananas.. I have gone banana nails a few times.. so why not do it using all yellow shades? Done.


I started all nails off with a base of Illamasqua Load


Once that was fairly dry, I used Zoya Pippa to make my banana shapes. I followed that with a stripe of Sinful Colors Unicorn to add a touch of a highlight, then roughly outlined and added some detail to the bananas using FxFS Dark Matter.


I feel like any time I do nail art, the look it never complete without some sort of dot activity. This look was no different. I grabbed Ninja Polish Humblebee, got some on the tip of my tiny detail brush and threw down some matte glitter dots. Done. I was content!

There is just something about banana nails that makes me 100% happy. Maybe because it is so strange.. no idea, but it always turns out fun!

Hope everyone has a great day -- and I shall see you tomorrow!

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

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
