Foil Manicure & Give-Away Update

It's a late post night for me. I am just now getting home for the evening. We left the house this morning before 7am and got home after 10pm. Talk about a long day. But after work I wanted to go grab some polishes for the 2nd place to the give-away, and since I had the kids with me, we ran a few other errands and stopped at the movies on the way home. Phew! Could we have fit anything else into the night?

Well I grabbed some stuff for the giveaway and for the past few months I have been grabbing some stuff here and there and so I put everything for my give-aways together and didn't realize how much I really had set aside for giveaways. So I decided to enhance the 1st place prize as well. After all this I still have enough for another 2 give-aways in the future. WOW! 

So here is the updated 1st prize:
I added in 4 more polishes. L to R: Essence Go Wild, LA Splash Sparkling Angel, Isadora Diamond Blue, Sweet Violet, Lac Biege & Smokey Grey, Zoya Adina & Essence Everybody's Talking About.

Now for the second prize:
L to R: Rimmel Steel Grey, Essence Go Wild & Everybody's Talking About, Isadora Galaxy & Sapphire, Goldie un-named color & ULTA Sunny Romance of San Tropez Mini

So what do you all think of my choices?  I will update the Give-Away page with the new prizes. 

In the mean time, time is running out to enter. You have until Monday March 15th at 11:59 EST to enter. I will announce the winners sometime on Monday. If by some miracle I get to 200 followers by then, I will add a third prize!

Now for my Foil Fun

I was bored last night and decided to mess around with some foils. I already had RBL Stormy on, so I left that alone. I wanted to see about mixing up some silver & purple foil in a somewhat deconstructed pattern to see what kind of effect I would get. Here is what I ended up with.

I think it came out pretty cool. Everyone thought I had fake nails on today, so not sure if that is a compliment or not. What do you think? 


  1. Great prizes, and your nails look *really* neat! How did you do that??

  2. this is so pretty! i love it! howd you do it??

  3. hannahhloves - I got a foil kit on transdesign and put some of the glue on my nails and then tapped at the glue before it became tacky and then tapped the silver and purple foil over that. I wanted to do a tutorial for that, but my daughter didn't want to take the pics for me. I may do it again with different colors and have someone take pics for me then.
