Gold Swirls

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you some nails that I think are actually really pretty, but still very fun.

Gold swirls.. sounds pretty straight forward, but this gold polish is amazing!

A month and a smidge back, a co-worker/pal took me to CosmoProf (she has a card - yay!) and of course I picked up some nail polish. Two of the polish I picked up are featured in this look - and one of the polish is actually a new brand, to me.

I, of course, stocked up on Seche Vite (it was under $5 per bottle..) and I snapped up OPI You're Such A Budapest and Morgan Taylor Glitter & Gold.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI You're Such A Budapest
  • Morgan Taylor Glitter & Gold
  • MND Vinyls
  • Sponge
  • Nail Experiments Liquid Latex
  • Tweezers
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I used the sponge method to apply the gold glitter, and again, just obsessed with that method! The glitterage is so opaque and easy to work with. Just so in love!

Vortex Swirl stencils are available HERE, and the liquid latex can be purchased by contacting Elena HERE

That is all for today - hope you are having an amazing day, and I will see you 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

Day 27: The Hungry Asian Cookies (and) Cream

Hey everyone! I decided that for today and tomorrow (my last day - eeek!) that I would choose two polish that mean something to me. Today I am going to be sharing Cookies & Cream made by the awesome Kae aka The Hungry Asian. When I first started blogging, I immediately started following her. She is the reason behind many of my polish purchases.. heh. She started "frakening" polish awhile back.. and I had a HUGE lemming for Cookies & Cream - but, at the time, she wasn't shipping to Canada. Then, when she started to ship to Canada, I would always miss the restock times.. Then I just sort of.. forgot about it. Then, a little while back, while stumbling through all the amazing gems on etsy.. I saw a photo.. I didn't need to see the seller or the name.. I knew. It was ordered almost immediately. And it has sat.. until now. It still makes me heart smile. And now that it is mine? Constant smiling heart! I decided to not use undies on this. It is

Terrazzo Inspired Nails

 Hey everyone! Will speed-race past a whole 'sorry I have been away' write-up and just go straight to the goods. I apologize in advance for my VERY dry cuticles (I cleaned up as much as I could in edit mode.. but, still bad) - I have been applying oil and lotions multiple times per day for.. weeks.. and.. no beneficial results, sadly. I went with terrazzo print inspired nails for this go-round. I started with a base coat, then OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI, then, using the brush for the each nail polish, I went in with: OPI Suzi Shops & Island Hops, OPI Sailing & Nail-ing, OPI Amazon...Amazoff, China Glaze Liquid Leather, China Glaze Sweet Hook, Essie Chinchilly, Color Club Je Ne Sasi Quoi, and Sally Hansen White On - then finally topped with Seche Vite. I am hoping to slowly creep back into regularly posting new content here - so, stay tuned!
