Everybody Walk The Dinosaur!

Hello everyone!!

Long time, no post - I know. I took a little mental vacation.. I have still been doing my nails and photographing them, but the idea of uploading, editing, and preparing posts just sounded like a nightmare. Yes, I know, in the grand scheme of things, it really is not a lot of work, but to my mental state, it just seemed like too much. I apologize.

I am starting to feel recharged, and good 'mentally' (I realize this makes me sound like I am really out to lunch/a space case, but I promise it is just health related and that it just affects my moods. I am not depressed or bipolar or anything else.)

Funny that the things that spurred me to post was snapping off my long ass nails yesterday. Ok, one snapped off, the others I just clipped down. My post for today will feature my newly shortened nails, and then my next few posts will feature my long bad boys that I had for quite awhile. Admittedly, I missed short nails. So much easier!

I was looking for inspiration earlier, and one group of gals gave me a bunch - I was just getting some supplies ready to do something else, when I saw my dino nail decals and completely changed what I wanted to do.

I found the base photo HERE and just.. went from there!


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze Violet-Vibes
  • China Glaze Glow With The Flow
  • China Glaze Treble Maker
  • China Glaze Daisy Know My Name?
  • China Glaze Home Sweet House Music
  • China Glaze DJ Blew My Mind
  • MakeItStick Dinosaur Nail Vinyls
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I honestly used two triceratops decals, as those are my favourite dinos, but I got to say that the pterodactyl and t-rex decals are killing it with the background!

That is all for today. Happy to be back. I am hoping to post 1-2x a week, mayhaps more, mayhaps less, but I am back.. well.. I was always still present and doing nails, just not sharing them. Fail.

Take care until next time!

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

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
