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! 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
