Dapper Grey Nails Did

I don't have too much to say about this mani - it's just ok. I rushed it because I had to bolt out of the door to get some pizza with my girls so I just did a simple french using China Glaze Recycle for the base, White on White for the tips and some dots of black from a striper pen. Thing is it chipped the next day cause of the STUPID Sally Hansen base coat I've been using. BAH.

Ben also tells me it reminds him of Totoro...which actually makes me kinda like it just a bit more.

So, there you have it. And another crappy iPhone picture to boot!

Minx Nails Did

So my friend Nikki and I went out to one of the 2 salons in Toronto currently doing Minx nails. It was something that I had been wanting to try for a while but just putting off mostly cause I've been lazy LOL. Anyway, we made a date to do it, and I have to say...I'm a little disappointing. I mean, the result is lovely! But when it comes down to it its just a foil pressed on and applied with heat.

The longevity of it was so upsetting - the technician told us that it would last 7 to 10 days and that evening/next morning the edges already started to roll. I'm not sure if it was the application or just the nature of Minx itself, but it was disappointing. The great thing is that they LOOK awesome for the short amount of time that they're adhered properly. I got a mix of this funky 80's confetti motif with the mirrored silver (the one Beyonce rocked - not that I care...but there you have it).

All in all for $55 for 4.5 (3 of which they looked ragged) days that's a lot of polish I coulda bought...but I guess to try it once it was okay. Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic, but at least its from an iPhone 4 so its not that bad!

Mod Kiwi-licious Nails Did

Where have you been Mr. Blog??? Sorry about the hiaatus! Ben stole my camera while he was in Germany for 10 days and then I've just been going 120% at work and the last thing I want to look at is my laptop when I get home :( BUT I do have 3 whole posts coming up (two with wicked bad iPhone pictures, so I apologize in advance).
om nom nom
So preggo-me has me really into kiwi's lately. Actually I devoured about oh, 15 in the past week alone!!! So I thought I'd do a little modern homage to my favorite fruit of the moment (although I've already moved onto watermelon, I'm so fickle like that) with some kiwi inspired nails! I used Nubar Green Tea for the base and a simple black striper pen for the "seeds". Simple...and for its simplicity it lasted all of 2 days!

Dear Sally Hansen Extended Wear Base Coat:
Does extended wear mean for more than 2 hours? Because that's all I'm getting out of you. You are the worst base coat I have ever ever used and I hate you.
