When in France…

31 Mar

I’m not actually in France, and this manicure isn’t actually what I have on my nails right now.

However, a few months ago, I gave myself a french manicure, took pictures, and forgot all about them. So, you lucky readers get to see them now! Voila!

For the white tips, I used two coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in ‘Whirlwind White’, as well as nail stickers to keep the line nice and straight. You can buy french nail stickers at any drugstore (I got mine from Shoppers Drug Mart). I don’t remember what kind they were, but if you ask the person working in the cosmetics department, they will be able to direct you to some ample choices for stickers. I painted one coat of Rimmel Lycra+Minerals in ‘442 French Rose’ overtop. This colour is a sheer light pink and is perfect for softening the hard white line. After that, I put one coat of Revlon ‘Extra Life No Chip Top Coat’ on and there you have it!

I just have to say that the Revlon top coat is one of the best I’ve ever used in my life! It makes my nail polish as hard as ROCK! I would recommend it to anyone, anytime, anywhere!

Pretty In Pink!

25 Mar

The other day I was looking an manicures online and saw a lot of ombre nails floating around. But, since I don’t have five similar (but different in shade) pink polishes, I decided to do a makeshift ombre manicure. I hope you like!

The two colours I used were Sally Hansen Insta Dry, of which the darker is called Fuchsia Flare and the lighter was Pink Blink. What I did was paint the three inner nails on each of my hands the darker pink, and the last two (ring and pinky fingers) the lighter pink. Lots of people thought this was a cool idea!

Also, my birthday was the other day (March 20th). My mom made this beautiful cake for me!!!!! Isn’t it lovely?

Ugh, Exams

22 Mar

I’m sooo sorry I haven’t been able to post much lately. School is becoming INSANE and I have have two exams today already!

I did a manicure the other day with two different pink polishes, so I will post pics of that soon.

But for now, school is my first priority!

Love y’all!

Hot Water Hurts

14 Mar

I did such a stupid thing today. It started out with me putting water in a teapot to boil. Once the water had boiled, I put a teabag in my cup and held the cup up while I began to pour water into it. Then, only for a split second did I look away from what I was doing to talk to my mother, and that’s when it happened.

I screamed in pain, bolted to the bathroom, and let a waterfall of cold liquid run over my hand while trying to hold back my tears.

I accidentally poured searing hot water over my thumb, which now feels like its being jabbed by a thousand needles every second. So I bought some Ozonol and gauze wrap and made myself a mini-thumb-cast.

Moving right along, I tried out the new Nicole by OPI “Disco Dolls” colour from the Kardashian Kollection and I love it! Here is a picture of the colour, along with my poor, throbbing thumb. 😦

Enjoy your evening (or rest of the day, for wherever you are in the world)!

12 Mar

Hello, my dears!

I would just like to let everyone know that my cousin has now decided to join me in blogging!
Her name is Jodi and she loooves nail polish just as much as (if not more than) I do!
So, please give a warm welcome to the newest member of my team!

Hope you are all having a lovely Monday. More swatches to come soon!

Here’s what my nails look like right now (I apologize for the fuzzy picture)! This is “Gilty Pleasure” by Sally Hansen. It’s a beautiful colour and it looks minxed in the sun! One coat is enough, but I did two here. 🙂
