My Secret Santa

Hello everyone!!

I am pretty shocked that I am actually able to concentrate long enough already to snap a photo and to try and make this post! I hope it makes sense, fingers crossed!

So, I have been pretty sick lately, not like coughy-sneezy-etc (ok, a little bit!), but I have had an extreme headache since last Thursday evening. My mom and I finally called this 'Hospital Hotline' because we were all getting a bit worried. According to the nurse, I probably have H1N1, but if I came into the hospital, I would be sitting for hours, and if it wasn't exactly what I had, then I would either have it, or if I did have it, I'd be passing it around. AWESOME (not really).

I have been told to self-isolate.. So, other than being around my family, who has already been exposed, I am not welcome around other people. I have missed four days of work. My head hurts, my eyes cry on their own, my body feels like it got hit by a semi, etc. Blah. Although, for a 'flu', I don't mind this.. I am not a fan of the whole upchucking deal. I find that when the head pain starts to take over, I just close my eyes for a few, it wards off the pain for awhile. Or I have to use strong meds to stop the pain and put myself to sleep!

I have been extremely careful about everything I do though.. Sanitizing everything, frequent handwashing, having my own towel to dry my hands, etc. So far my family seems to be doing well, which is super good!

ANYWAYS! This isn't a post to just talk about what a disease-bag I am, it is to talk about MY SECRET SANTA.. From elfster of course :D

I awoke to find a package sitting on my dresser, looked at the sender, and was super excited!! I actually cracked a smile, it hurt, but was totally worth it!!



If I am not mistaken, she is Theresia of Amused Polish.. And what she sent is AMAZING!!

I received:

3 nail polish (Essence Colour & Go in 'Disco Glam'; S-he Stylezone in 'Aqua Shine'; and a franken called 'Grass Is Always Greener' which I am extremely excited about!!!);

An adorable lip blam from Claire's - the flavour/scent is Cookie Dough!

An Essence stamping kit! That is really awesome to me because it is something I have never heard about! AND! The plate is amazing! It has stars! I seriously almost screamed when I saw it - but decided not to, my brain is shatterable I believe.

Oh, and these candies.. That are fizzy and sour and wonderful!!

Thank you thank you thank you! I cannot wait to try out these gems!!!

Sure hope you don't have H1N1! Hope your feeling better. I know the regular flu really knocks you out. Nice Christmas gift.

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…
