St. Patrick's Day Nails 2015

Hey everyone!

Just thought I would do a quick post for today.. being that it is St. Patrick's Day. This day is rad for many reasons, but two that I especially like are: it is one of my best pal's birthday, and this day has a parade of green - and green (all shades) is my favourite colour.

Tiffany, from Nail Polish Canada, was kind enough to send me an image plate for this particular day - so I figured I would put it to good use as two of the images I quite liked! The image plate is BM-H05.


I used:
  • Color Club Twiggie 
  • Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • China Glaze Pine-ing For Glitter
  • Essence Nail Art Glitter
  • BM-H05
  • Toothpicks

Does anyone notice my weak attempt at water marbling? I tossed some gold glitters on there to try to mask it a bit.. which looks rad. In hindsight, I should have gone with a more vibrant green glitter, or just have done a gold accent nails - but I still quite like the whole thing overall.

Have a gnarly St. Patty's Day -- see you all again soon!!

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

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.

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
