Random Tip

No, not a song title.. I will save those for nail polish posts.. This post is just a random tip!

So, my mother was watching 'Oprah' the other day and Dr. Oz (I hope that is the correct name..) came on and was giving 'beauty tips'. ANYWAYS! The one my mom paid closer attention to was the one about foot care.

If you have rough skin on the bottom of your feet, or even worse, the white flakey/chalky skin (I was closer to this category, gross, I know!)

What you need to get rid of the yucky whiteness is use Oxy/Stridex/Clearasil pads (any that have the 2% salicylic acid - which is pretty much all of them..), vaseline or cocao butter and some socks.

-Start off with a clean foot (preferrably) and swip all over with the pad
-Slather on your vaseline or cocao butter
-Slap on a sock
-Repeat to other foot

I have been doing this for five days now.. And HUGE difference. I spend a lot of time on my feet/walking around, especially with work and everything else. I really never think twice about the damage done to my feet. Now that they are not rough or with all that buildup of skin - they look awesome! I am so excited and reccomend this to anyone.. Hopefully this will help someone out like it has helped me.

I was pretty much the tester in my family. Now that my mom and sister have seen the results, they are like 'oh, maybe I should try this!'

Nice to hear that it really works. I wonder if it's expensive to keep using it. I also wonder if you have to use it everyday.

I think the stack of 90 Clearsil pads I bought was on sale for $3-something.. And vaseline isn't too bad for a large jar.. So I would say it is under $10 with maybe a pair of socks thrown in :D

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…
