Countdown To Halloween: 6 Days

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my own little mini-series.. Countdown To Halloween! I am going to be posting a Halloween-esque nail look everyday right up to Halloween.. mostly because I want to honour my favourite time of year, but also to give any of you some inspiration for nail art that you could potentially rock for Halloween!

To allow this countdown to commence, I decided to do something with the image plate that Nail Polish Canada sent to me. For the past year, one of the reps there has been sending me rad seasonal/holiday BM plates, and I never really use them. I love the whole deal with stamping, but I am horrid at it, so I avoid it as much as possible. But, when I was forming this series idea, I figured why not put that gem plate to use?! So, here goes.


The plate has 6 images, and sadly, I only have 5 fingers on my "photographing hand", so you get 5/6.

I started my nails off with a really amaaaazing ombre using FxFS Flashy and China Glaze Lubu Heels. I then used FxFS White Matter along with BM-H07 and went to town. Again, my stamping skillz leave much to be desired, but I think you get the idea. My absolute favourite is my pinky with the stamp with all the wording. It makes my heart smile!

You can snap up that plate, along with a cacophony of other goodies, HERE.

That is all for Day 7! 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!
