Stepping Stone

By Duffy. Sigh.. The way she sings this song is just so pretty! I know some people say her voice is too annoying to listen to repeatedly, but I really like it..

Gah.. Who blogs at 4:10am? Stupid insomnia.

Sooo.. A girlie that I work with asked me when I was painting my nails again.. And I said within my few days off.. And I asked her what colours I should use.. She picked blue - wanted something with two shades of blue. Done.

I actually found a youtube video for this look.. But I changed it up a bit because I wanted it to be different. BUT! I did - you know what.. Scope the photo of what I used first:

P.S - Sorry I always snap photos before cleanup.. So yucky!!


The dots were made with a bobby pin! How neato is that? I kind of like youtube and all the little tips and tricks I find! I was going to order some of those dotting/marbelizing tools.. But for now this works. I am trying to be good and pay off some stuff before going back to school.. When all I want to do is spend money on nail polish and makeup.. and books! UGH! /endrant

Well.. I spose I should get some shut eye before shopping tomorrow.. err.. today!

Oh.. And just a quick snap of my make up from the evening.. I liked it.. I mean, considering I haven't been doing my make up too often anymore.. But anyways!

Love the manicure! Very cute and I love the blue. I love Duffy's voice. It's nice to hear a more unusual voice. I can't stand the Brittany type voices. Makes me want to scream! I don't like that genre of music anyway. I'm sure there are plenty of people up with you at 4AM. I'm up any time day or night. I'm glad I have a computer to fill my time.

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! Thi

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 :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
