Countdown To Christmas: CHRISTMAS DAY Nails.. 1 day late.

Hey everyone.

Well. I did it. I failed. I apologize. I allowed my sickness to overcome my will to do my nails. I rocked naked nails for Christmas.. though, I did sleep for basically 18+ hours of the day, sooo not too many people had to see my naked nails. I plan to be better by Saturday aka tomorrow, as that is when I am spending time with my family. Le sigh. I was sick last Christmas, and just did a repeat this year. Lame. Next year I would like zero illness, thanks.

Anyways. On Christmas eve I stopped by a store that my friend manages because.. I felt I needed to give myself another Christmas gift and get some more boots. Found a pair, and then as I was leaving, she mentioned me doing reindeer nails. Now, there are those really fancy Far Isle stag-print reindeer, or cheeky cartoony reindeer. At the time, I didn't ask her to clarify, but, I went with cheeky for today. Plus, my nose would not give me enough time to do anything too lengthy work wise as it needs to be blown every 2.358 minutes. Dumb.

I used THIS PHOTO as my inspiration, and just added a holiday classic nail polish.. which I believe my sister actually bought this one.. I stole it. Sorry Lee-Lee!


I used:
  • China Glaze Party Hearty
  • Essie Little Brown Dress
  • Essie Mink Muffs
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • OPI Coca-Cola Red
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Little brush
  • Dotting tools

Some of my reindeer look a little crazy, but I am quite ok with that. They make me smile.

Thanks for popping in to check out my Countdown to Christmas nail art series, it means a lot. Hope you enjoyed them, and maybe even tried a few yourself.

See you again real soon with another post! I sincerely hope everyone had a great Christmas, no matter how/where/when you celebrate it. Or not. I just hope you had a good festive time. There we go. And, done.

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

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

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!
