Yule Shoot Your Eye Out

By Fall Out Boy. A Christmas themed song because today was like a Christmas morning to me..

My long awaited package from Quirius arrived today!! I was suuuuper pumped to get it.. Not just for myself, but that package contains 12 polishes.. 6 for me and 6 for someone else (I cannot say for whom though, just in case!)

First, I have to talk about their packaging.. It is done up really nicely!! They are safely tucked into these little boxes that are wrapped in some serious bubble wrap encaved by packing peanuts. I fell in love with this company just at that point.

Then I finally got to the part where I was allowed to open the boxes.. Now, it says each box contains 6 polishes, yet I had 3 boxes (I will answer the mysterious box question in a bit (does anyone else chuckle at the word box? oh my immaturity strikes again!)). I checked on box two to make sure it was correct for someone, it was.. Opened my box (heh) and this is what I found..

Now for box three..

Caribbean Turquoise & Autumn Bronze


GIFTS! I had to show the stickers on top because they spelt my name correctly!! Even when I fill out documents with my name, an 'i' is always missed, or a 'j' is tossed in (true story) so this was tres exciting to me. They can get my name right but the government cannot.. I'm just tossing that out there.

The pictures in flash change the last two colours quite a bit.. Caribbean Turquoise is much darker, and Autumn Bronze looks like a dirty metallic aka not so gold.

I don't know if anyone noticed from tiny glimpses in the photos, but my nails are naked.. So there will be a polish post asap!!

Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday, I know I am!!

I don't have any of this brand. There's many I would love to have! Pretty colors you picked out. One with my name also. I'll have to get that one sometime. I just bought Zoya's polish with my name. It looks like skim milk to me. I'll have to try it on. I'm not too much a fan of white polish. I can always use it to layer other polish. Hurry up and swatch. That's really nice that you get extra polish for free!

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
