Countdown To Halloween: 4 Days

Hey everyone!!

Soooo.. the post for today is another one that I was going to redo, but then I decided that it isn't that I don't like the outcome, I just don't like that at the time I was sick and had to blow my nose.. and my nails were not quite dry.. BUT.. I also don't mind showing you when mistakes happen - this is my real life.

As I have mentioned many, many times in previous posts - I have an awesome sister and friends who constantly send me rad photos of manis they want me to try - my sister sent me a wealth of photos with manis that I should try to recreate for Halloween. This is one of them. Bloody fingerprints.

Looking back on the whole thing meow, there are a few things.. ok, one thing for sure I would want to try differently.. and that is a. either using a different colour of red, or b. using acrylic paint instead of nail polish. Things to take note of for next year (for myself), or for you right now, if you want to give this a go.

Also. Maybe make sure you do not have a death cold whilst painting your nails.. you will want a solid block of time where you do not have to blow your nose. Seriously. I actually had my nose plugged with tissue, but it really did not help. Dummmb!


I used:
FxFS White Matter
FxFS Flashy

I did a solid coat (or two) on my nails of White Matter, painted some Flashy on my finger, stamped it once on paper, then pressed onto my nails.. I wasn't thrilled with the first go over, so majority of my nails are "double finger stamped".. because I am awesome.

Again, love this whole method, it usually looked amazing - and this is still rad - minus the smudged activity because my nose would not leave me alone. Sigh.

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!

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!
