Stop Crying Your Heart Out

By Oasis... Another sigh-worthy song. I absolutely love this song - I sing it quite often, haha!

This weekend has been extra awesome! Friday night the 'crew' from work decided to have a bowling night.. We didn't have as many people as usual - but we had some old favourites show up.. Plus added drama at the bowling alley - who knew eh? That all was really great, but what tops that is that one of my good friends and co-workers returned from her 3 month work stint in Victoria, BC. So happy to have her home!

It was great to spend hours with her before we went bowling, but what was even more awesome was that she was really excited to give me a gift (ok, my sister and I!).. Anyways..

SERIOUSLY! Look at these! Aren't they gorrrrgeous?! She was chuckling as I was basically drooling over them. She was at a market (apparently they have tons in Victoria, so it was either there or Seattle.. not *quite* sure) and saw these polishes and figured we would love them (and we do!) she said she spent forever choosing colours for us! Such a sweetheart!

*Side Note*: My sister and I were laughing because my camera apparently didn't like 'Passion Pink' - every photo I snapped was blurry-ish on my camera just of that polish. So now I figure it will be all 'Final Destination'ish and I will die in some freak nail polish incident when I use it. Heh. I am a dork.

I have decided to dedicate my next few polish-doings to these gems. I pulled the yellow out of the bag first, so I figure that will be the one I use first.

I am not super happy with this look, but I am not that upset by it either.. Again, forgot cleanup before photos - I will learn, I promise!

I think the consistantcy of the 'Neon Yellow' and 'Power Up' are similar.. I had to put three coats on before it stopped being too see-through.. I think with 'Power Up' I will toss on a coat of white before hand..

Also, 'Marine Life' didn't photograph properly with flash or without.. It is a darker more turqoise-ish colour.. Hopefully when I do a look with it, it will show up better.

Well, I spose I should go pass out for a bit before my shift. Two more then a few days off! And excellent movies are released on to DVD this Tuesday - YAY!

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
