I need an affirmation

Hopefully I will have a light box this weekend because I hate taking so many pictures now.

Today I have some Take That nails for you guys. I haven't done any in a while! I know how you all missed them. My friend and I were actually going to go and see them, but Jason left so what was the point. That being said we did see them in Cinemas. Overall it was a fantastic show, but you can't really beat a bunch of middle aged men dancing. These nails were inspired by the live version of the song Affirmation from their last album Progress. Watch the video below. I was telling my friend their costumes reminded me of a cult. Just something I though of.

Also fun titbit: I don't think Gary Barlow sweats. Moist at points, but never a full blown sweat. Witchcraft.

Oh Canada!

Today is Canada Day! Which means it's time for a Canadian manicure! I say that like I do something every year, when in reality this is a first. And I wont lie, it's mainly because I find the maple leaf complicated to draw. It's easy, but even easier to mess up. So I was thrilled that I had a maple leaf stamp to use from The Born Pretty Store.

Honestly though, the manicure is just ok. I used Barry M Blood Orange for the solid red, and I used Essie Fishnet stockings for the stamping, as Blood Orange was horrible to stamp with. Then I just added OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls to the red nails. I also used that as a base for the stamping. The red was streaking all over the place 1)Because that red has a tendency to bleed and streak and 2)I had JUST thinned out my top coat, and it's more watery consistency did not help the cause :/

What do you think? Have I failed the country I love so much?

PS. I feel so bad I'm running a couple days late with a review post, but I have no light box which is making photos harder to take. Hopefully in the next couple of days I will have one. It will make taking photos soooooooo much easier!

10th Time's The Charm!

I used to take a lot of photos when I started blogging. I want to say I could easily take 60. Now a days I try and limit myself to around 15 shots, as it's just less overwhelming. Lets be real, when you take 60 shots half of them are similar or identical to a bunch of other ones you have. Well since I have been redoing my room I have been lightbox free, which means a lot more misses rather than hits. Long story short I was worried I wouldn't get to share this manicure because ALL the shots were crap, minus the last shot. Huzzah!

On to the deets. This is a simple manicure(as I'm sure most of you have noticed) I used Chanel's Malice and Zoya's Tomoko. I used Nail Vinyl's to make the squiggly lines. Easy as pie. I ended up wearing this longer than I usually wear manicures for. FIVE days. If I'm going to wear Malice I WILL be getting as much use out of it as possible.

Stop! Hammer Time!

I don't know why but the other night I really wanted to do nails inspired by Luboutin shoes. Don't know why, but I just did. When I saw these studded heels I knew I had the PERFECT Born Pretty rhinestones to go with it. And I of course HAD to pain the other side of my nails red(Revlon Red Carpet)!

My nails were on fleek!

Sadly the fleek died a day later when I stopped liking them.

Ps. I will do my Wiki Challenge nails this week, but when I have time. I have a pretty nifty topic(This week you had to find a random article!).

Pps. The rhinestone wheel was a NIGHTMARE to open. They have since fixed the problem, but the cases they were in used to have a lid that swivels, but mine wouldn't budge. So I ended up using a hammer to open it.

2 Become 1

As you can see I haven't been around much this month. While I no longer have mould, I now have an empty room with new furniture that has yet to be built because I have been quite the busy bee lately. I haven't really been doing much art because I haven't really had a place to do it, but I have been missing it loads. I haven't actually done art in weeks :'( I finally couldn't take it and decided to start up again with something simple.

I decided to combine two things to make something super awesome. I started out with a white base  and then did a gradient using Sinful Colors Pull Over, and Picture Polish Mad Magenta. When I was done that I applied a thick coat of clear polish(I think by Sally Hansen), and then quickly blobbed on Orly's Liquid Vinyl. I did this one finger at a time. Finally I let it dry for about 20 minutes before I added a coat of top coat and la voilà! I think it looks fab, don't you think?

Ps. For your viewing pleasure

If I liked hot weather, a tropical escape would look nice right about now.

Sorry I have been away the past week. I have mould(eep) in my bedroom and had to get that dealt with. Because of that I have had to take pretty much everything out of my room including all my nail stuff. And I threw out my light box because I figured since I was emptying the room I might as well get rid off stuff I didn't need. And that light box was looking rough. Luckily for me I took photos for these shortly before my room was taken apart :)

These are nail wraps for the new Incoco Tropical escape collection.

First I have Tropical Getaway which is described as "A lush design of island leaves"

Next I have Summer Dream which is described as "A cool azure blue". I'll be honest, I'm not a huge fan of single colour wraps. I personally think I can paint my nails one colour in less time then it takes to apply these. Also EVERY little imperfection shows up on these(as you can see), so you have to be very careful. That being said there is no dry time.

Finally I have 2 that I combined. Summer Night which is described as "A playful & bright tropical design"and Strawberry Daiquiri which is described as "A bold, punchy summer pink". As you can see I combined the plain wraps with the wraps with designs then I added some rheinstones to the plain ones just to add a little something extra. I really liked this combo and I have been wearing this for almost a week with just a bit of tip wear. And I did add topcoat.

Overall even though I wasn't a fan of the plain wraps I do think they are all great quality and I would recommend getting some of the fun summer designs. You can get them now at the Incoco website for $8.99USD or you can get one of their 4 bundles, which contain 4 different packages of wraps they are normally $33.96USD, but are currently on sale for $27.00USD.

Can you tell it's fake?

Ugh my night was a mess. Started off ok with a large pizza that I ate at the speed of light with the boy. Turns out that was a horrible idea. I hadn't had much to eat all day and when I eat heavy food after a long stretch of nothing I get BAD abdominal cramps. So I got horrible cramps and once they subsided I decided to tap out for a while and just lie down. I'm not sure that was the best idea. At the time I didn't notice this but the boy's place was HOT. You could feel the heavyness in the air when you took in a breath. I think I ended up getting heat exhaustion, because whenever I woke up I was in a pool of sweat, dizzy and my heart was pounding. I'm feeling much better now, I slept in my clothing and makeup, but whatever.

Today I have for you week one of the A-Z's challenges successor, The Wiki'd Challenge. This time around all our prompts come from random Wikipedia articles. This week the subject was 'Tattoo'. For this I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. Originally I was going to do a tattoo I wanted in the future, but I have actually already done something with it in the past. My next option was doing something with fake tattoos, but I didn't feel like buying any. Sooooooo I took it into my own hands and did my own fake tattoo. Can you tell it's not real :P I don't know why but I thought that was amusing originally.
