Checking Out

By She Wants Revenge. Interesting musician who some say has the same kind of sound as Depeche Mode.


Oh, um, hello! How are all of you? I cannot believe how long I have actually disappeared for. I see my last post was on December 2.. And I am still coming to terms that I haven’t posted anything in a month. That is ridiculous! If I happen to still be in some blog rolls, then thank you for that, and if not I totally understand.

I could try to explain things that were going on, but it basically comes down to me not feeling like actually doing my nails for awhile there. I would slap on a colour and that was it – if I put on any colour at all. I was in that whole zombie-mode that I had talked about once before. Then one afternoon I looked at my nails and saw how boring they were.. Then I realized that I missed doing that little extra.

I am wondering if it is just the Christmas-y time of year that I go through some sort of ‘funk’, who knows. Not to say I didn’t have a great Christmas, I totally did! My favourite Uncle was here, I rekindled a friendship, I hung out with the sibs (playing wii), I bought 2 nail polish (haha.. but seriously.. a replacement ‘Alpine Snow’ and ‘Russian Navy Suede’ – which I love by the way!!)

I was actually watching ‘Julie/Julia’ with my mom and sister on Saturday night, and while she was blogging, I realized that I missed blogging.

I am hopping that I am going to be back and just booming with activity, but we’ll see. Hopefully at least once a week for now!!

I finally charged the battery on my camera and found out I had some photos from two other looks before I took a hiatus. OH! And we also got pet Degus, I will snap some better photos of them and then tell you all about them. They are FANTASTIC!

Ok, on to the photos..








I apologize for all the chip-age. Work (in the past month especially) was a beast to my nails! I have actually noticed my nailpolish chips easier now. My sister has said the same thing about hers, even though we both use top coat. Time to change brands I spose.

I have an order from Trans-Designs being shipped out today, and I basically have my next order already made out.. Will post more about that when it arrives!

OH! Also, I have been looking at Zoya polishes more now, I want to try them out!! Does anyone know of a site that will ship to Canada that also sells Zoya polishes? I think that is about the only way I will get my mitts on them. Guh.

Have a magnificent Monday everyone!!

P.S - I will add this song to my music player a bit later. I hear the wii calling my name!!

Glad to see that your back. I just think it's the weather causing all the problems with nails. My skin is so dry that I have to keep cutting it off around my nails. I don't even go outside so I guess it's the heat. Makes a mess of my sinuses also. I love that first manicure. It's really adorable. I love TransDesign. I have an order coming from them also.

The first one is really delicious! I just received a package from TransDesign - and I got Russian Navy Suede too. It's really amazing color!

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:

Created out of the needs and desires of T.…

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…
