Crying Over You

By Platinum Blonde.. Ahh.. Good ol 80s tunes!!

Sorry x 85 that I have disappeared again!! Things got pretty crazy around Thanksgiving.. My favourite uncle was here.. I had to work a bunch.. Spend time with him and family.. THEN! I was scheduled to go to some appointments in another city that is about 2 and a half hours from here (it is called Regina).. My mother was supposed to come with me.. But was called in for her knee surgery on a cancellation.. Which was great, she needs this surgery, but it threw me into some crazy zombie mood.. Luckily the uncle was still here so he was able to take me to Regina because he was going that way anyways.. Phew!

I got home on Friday, which means I should have posted up a look or two.. BUT.. I spent Friday in the mediclinic with my brother.. Thursday night he took a puck to the foot while playing.. Once they were on their break between periods, he took off his skate to check out the damage and there was no way that skate was going back on. His foot was about 6x its normal size.. They took xrays and such.. Thinks there is a crack in the bone.. He is on crutches. So I have 'limpy' and 'crutch' to take care of.. So to make sure they aren't always limping or crutching around, I make them watch movies with me. Heh.

On top of taking care of them, I have also been working since I got home.. So work, watch movies, do laundry, tidy up, etc etc.. My days have been long, but I am happy to help. PHEW! Ok.. photos..

I thought I had a photo of the look before this first one, but I guess I didn't.. Not really missing out on much, but here goes..

The first one I saw on youtube and went with it.. The second one I have seen an image of. Sorry for the scary dried out hands.. Even my special steroid cream couldn't repair all the damage from washing machine chemicals (the machine is broken at work.. the hose is in a pail.. That was tipping.. Reached in.. OUCH!.. plus it doesn't help that my hand skin is already vulnerable because of exzema.. urgh).. Plus I wrecked my nails a lot at work last night.. Oh well, I will put something new on in the next day of three..

I want to do Halloween nails.. but I still think it is a smidge too early! Soon though!! Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday!!

How's your Mom doing after her knee surgery? Hope she does well. Your poor brother! Hope he recovers fast and is okay! Take care of yourself and don't wear yourself out. Ask for help if you need it. Glad your Uncle was there to go with you. Take care of your hands. I had eczema a long time ago. I was washing hair alot in beauty school. I broke out bad and got an infection. I had to wear cotton gloves with rubber gloves on top to wash hair. Didn't work out well. Maybe me itch like crazy.

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:

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…
