Autumnal Chevron Drip Nails

Hey everyone!

Ok. First. I have to talk about this amazing polish colour. A few days ago, I died over MyNailsDid's post of Barry M Mustard.. and I instantly wanted that polish.. or a mustard polish. It had to happen. She offered to try and hunt down a bottle whilst on her vacation (which I almost took her up on) - but then she mentioned that she thought Color Club Je Ne Sais Quoi should be similar.

An order to nailpolishcanada.com went in almost immediately.


I am obsessed with this colour. Does it really compliment my skintone? Not sure. Do I care? No.

With that order, I did snag some of the Essie Fall collection.. so.. why not put them all to use? And follow some nails by ChalkBoardNails?


 I. LOVE. THESE!

They basically scream autumn.. while also screaming heinous, but wearable sweater, with a touch of badassery because of the drips. I should honestly get a job describing photos.

These took a bit of time as the chevron is just done by hand.. but hey.. worth it!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Color Club Je Ne Sais Quoi
  • Essie Udon Know Me
  • Essie Kimono-Over
  • Essie Maki Me Happy
  • OPI My Vampire Is Buff
  • Orly Glitz
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

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!
