TTDIHALC - January - Day 2 - Fresh

Hey everyone!

When I decided to do this #nailartjan challenge, the very first prompt, I was like 'err.. fresh? wat.' Then I was like 'ok, fresh.. like.. flowers.. so floral print', then I realized I did not want to have floral nails be my first nails of this new year. Nothing against them, I just.. yeah, was not feeling it.

Then I was like 'fresh.. like.. so fresh and so clean-clean', yes, I did rap.. err.. speak some Outkast lyrics in my mind. Then it dawned on me 'fresh, like.. squeaky clean.. bubbles.. got it!' I had literally just screen capped an amazing mani photo and this was the perfect time to recreate it.

Without further ado, I give you my take on 'fresh' nails. I used THIS PHOTO for my inspiration. They were created by nailaddictart (found on instagram).




I absolutely adore these! I think they scream 'fresh'. Freshly painted.. a fresh white.. bubbles.. commme on! Perfecto!

I used:
G&G Stuck on Blu!
China Glaze White on White
Some pearls gems

I did two coats of white, then dabbed on some more base coat and just applied the pearl gems at random.. and until I was happy.

Remember to go scope out all the other rad nail art using the '#nailartjan' hashtag.. because there are bound to be amazing photos to drool over! Or, if you happen to be looking at this, let me know you are participating so I can go scope immediately.. I love that!

See you again in a couple of days!!

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!

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
