Dim the Lights.. It's Floral Time!

Hey everyone!

Haha.. uhhh.. my post title is killing me right now. My pals and I (my sister in particular) use the 'dim the lights...' line a lot, but originated from 'Road Trip', and it definitely does not end with 'it's floral time', but it is cheeky and I am going with it.

We have been having some very strange weather lately - yes, even for the prairies in Canada. We had a dream January (we had days that were above 0.. we had melting in January), which led to some extreme temperature lows in February, but compared to some winters, I almost feel like this was a cakewalk for a winter. And, it is intense how quick the turn around in temperatures have been. -30c on Saturday overnight.. and then up to -2c on Monday.. oh.. ok weather. Let's do this!

Because of these 'balmy' temps, I think of spring, and spring makes me think floral.. so.. here are my first set of floral nails for 2015.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • butter London Trout Pout
  • China Glaze White on White
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament
  • OPI Chillin' Like A Villain
  • OPI Cajun Shrimp
  • Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street
  • Color Club Twiggie
  • Little Brush
  • Dotting Tools
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I just really wanted to use Trout Pout again.. haven't used that gem in awhile. Then I decided to stay in the colour family for the flowers (roses?) and Chillin' Like A Villain and Cajun Shrimp fit the bill. Love these. Oh, and I needed gold in there just because.

Got a wealth of compliments on these.. and many thought they were jamberry (that is my fave kind of compliment) and a wealth of people lately have been telling me to start doing gel/acrylics.. who knows.. maybe some year I will learn?

That is all for today! See you all again soon!!

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!
