December 1-5 GLADvent Calendar

Hey everyone!

As promised, here is a run down of my advent gifts for December 1-5.. If you have no idea what I am talking about, please visit this post HERE.

 Day 1: A lovely bracelet with an orange-y red butterfly printed bead.. It was mentioned that there was going to be a bracelet with some charms tossed in along the way.. Very cute! It looked so tiny, I didn't think it would first around my wrist.. but it does.. with a wealth of slack. Thank you dainty wrists!

 Day 2: The cutest-miniest-sweetest little baby roller ball of Cranberry Sugar.. cuticle oil.. At least I am assuming it is cuticle oil. That is what I used it as.. if it is a roller ball of perfume.. well.. at least my mitts will smell amazing! The scent is really sweet, which I love. It reminds me of making Kool-Aid as a child. Good times!

Day 3: a bead to join the bracelet - it is an intense abstract design with a multitude of colours. I like it. On to the bracelet is goes!

Day 4: Cat.. tattoos? I believe.. and a bad ass ring! I really, really, reaaaaalllllly like the ring!!

 Day 5: Um.. wait, what!? If Sammy starts doing nail polish as well, I might have to pick up a third job. Or move in to a cardboard box and just use all my savings on living costs to support her store. This is a gorgeous red holo polish. Lord have mercy!


And here we have all the goodies together - week one.. not too shabby! The ring! The polish! That cuticle oil.. love it all! Cannot wait to see what next week brings - yay!

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!
