America's Suitehearts

Well, it isn't just THAT song, it is the South Rakkas Remix. A random fact, I always promised my sister that if they (being Fall Out Boy) ever came even remotely close to Saskatoon, I would get us concert tickets. On August 1 we will see them in concert, and we don't even have to travel as they are coming HERE! Yay! Anyways, on with the nail stuff eh.

As I have mentioned in a few posts, I have been taking a lot of shifts within the dishpit at work (I kind of like doing dishes.. weirdo I know) but I do them with nail polish on most of the time. Sometimes it stays on, other times I can peel it off no big deal. I figured this had to do with the yellowing of my nails, but the same thing is happening to my sister. We were not impressed considering we use base coat and everything.. One of our coworkers figured it was because we take off our polish, we repaint with something else. That is moreso true about my sister, I usually wait a day or two if I have no work/nothing important to do.

SO! I see this package sitting on the table on Saturday night..

But I didn't ask her about it until last night.. So she saw I wasn't wearing any nail polish and grabbed my index finger on my left hand..

I was pretty stunned, and my dad happened to be in the room and was pretty impressed as well! I couldn't stop touching the nail or looking at it.. It almost felt like wearing a gel nail.. The pink circle shows the buffed nail.. I circled the yellow spots in green.. So then I sat there and worked on the rest of my nails..

I know I still have a bit of yellowing.. But this was amazing to me! I told her if we like this system for in between time, I will pay for the refill kit. I am not going to lie, I am MAJORLY impressed.
The kit also includes a cuticle cream, which is good for me. As anyone that has glanced at some of my photos, you will see that I am not too nice to them. I never had the nail biting habit, but I'm a nail picker.. I used to pick and pull at my nails, cuticles and side of the nails until I would draw blood. I don't do it as often anymore, but I notice that when I am stressed out or working a lot, I am really mean to my nails. Hopefully starting this whole repair deal will work!
I will have to keep updates on how this kit works!!
Well, time to get ready for work. Nice managing shift for the next week and bit - YAY!

Hope this kit works for you. I can buff some yellow out but not all.

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!

This is actually …

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!!
I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica, SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica. They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!!
One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop.. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well.
I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop:

Created out of the needs and desires of T.…

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
