The Blues

Hey everyone!

I am positive that I have mentioned at least 8 million times how blue nail polish is my favourite. I feel like it compliments my skin tone the best, or, at the very least, I feel very confident when I sport blue polish. Just on of those 'quirks', I suppose. Anyways.

When I came across THESE NAILS by Sensationails4u, I was like 'yup', but immediately slapped some polish on to my nails. I changed it up a smidge because I do not have nail vinyls (plus I probably would not use them correctly and ruin lives) so I free-handed the lines and was not pleased with the lack of crispness.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze License & Registration Pls
  • OPI Gargantuan Green Grape (yeah, believe it!)
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Dotting Tool
  • Little Brush
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I want to go on a sort of mini-rant, but not a rant at the same time. One of the first.. oh.. 20 polishes I ever bought was the "original" formulation of OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, and I was OBSESSED with that gem.. then, it was down to less than a quarter of the bottle left.. it was all thick and goopy - even nail polish thinner could make it workable. THEN. I saw that GGG was available using my points on NPC, so I went for it, and was thrilled when the package arrived because I knew I would be replacing a favourite.. only.. it was not the same polish! It is.. like.. blue. Um. Duuumb! I mean, like my sister pointed out, it is still a nice polish colour, but it was not the colour I expected it to be. BUT. Then I can use it in manis like this, and it is rad. So. Rant in the fact that I no longer have that particular shade in my collection, and non-rant because it is not a total loss.

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

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!
