My Quick 11:45pm Shop Attack

I know.. No music title post.. Geez!!

 
Only because I just updated iTunes and need to restart before I do anything else.. And then I would be picking the song title manually and that is just not fair at all!!

 
Last night when I got off of work, my brother picked me up and was like 'We have to run to Shoppers'.. HEY! No problemo.. I love that place! So after my marathon shopping the other day and not picking up a single polish.. I of course went down the polish aisle of the store.. They still had their Insta-Dri polishes on for $3.. I nabbed two of them + a 60 Second Top Coat by Rimmel.. Thought I would give it a whirl..

 


 

 
Now, we know I am not one for swatching new polishes.. Plus I am already wearing my Russian Navy Unsuede-i-fied polish action. SO! I rigged something up.. And this was the best photo I could come up with..

 


 

 

 
Not the greatest.. But I tried! Both of these have 2 quick coats.. Green is my favourite colour, so I obviously love this one.. But it was Uptempo Plum that caught my eye at the store first.. Deep plum-purple with tiny light purple flecks? PERFECT!

 
Now on to what I am currently sporting..

 


 


 

 

 
I love this polish.. But I decided to add a top coat this time to totally change it up.. Not going to lie.. I am kind of in love with it. I got tons of compliments on it at work.. And I didn't even do a design this time! I think it is because it is all shimmery and gorgeous.

 
Whelp, time to stop procrastinating and actually do some cleaning up around here. 6 cages.. here I come!

 
Have a whimsical Wednesday all (:




  • gildedangel - Trust me, it was difficult! I did actually look at some polishes in certain places, but the prices are so weird at all these different shops. I would be like 'this is a terrible price!' next place would be even worse and so the day went on. Don't get me wrong, I honestly do not care about price too much, but why would I pay $11 for a drugstore polish.. Might just be me, heh!

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…
