31DC2014 - Day 5 - Blue

Hello everyone!

Day 5 of the #31DC2014 orders blue polish to be used.. All right! Green is my favourite irl colour, and I do love me some green polish (all the green!) but blue has to be my favourite polish colour, I find that no matter the shade, it compliments my skin tone. But. What to do on my nails?

Why, blueberries, of course.

I found THIS image, but could not find a source, any know who did these gems? Anyways, using that photo as my guide, I got to work.


I started off with a base of Barry M Blueberry (how fitting) on each nail.


I then drew some half-blueberries on the tips of my nails.. they actually remind me of blue tomatoes, but I want you to be thinking blueberries! Anyways. I used China Glaze I Sea The Point to do that. Then I added some highlight with FxFS White Matter.

I then added the little stem.. actually.. this is probably why I am thinking tomato.. I started with OPI Amazon...Amazoff and did some highlighting with Essie Mojito Madness.


When I was all done with the berries.. I knew my nails were not done.. right! I always feel like dots add the finished touch. These nails were no different. I used China Glaze New Birth for the dots. Now they felt complete.

That is all for today -- see you 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!

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!
