Creepy Mannequin Polish

So I decided to leap upon the band wagon and test out 'mannequin' hands. The reason I bought the polish? One of my co-workers came up to me yesterday at work and was like 'the new OPI Tokyo collection is out.. you should pick up some of them' and slapped her CosmoProf card down on the table. I pretty much gasped.

Sadly, when I arrived, the collection isn't going to be available until Wednesday.. So I grabbed CG II and Liquid Leather (replacement) and a few random top coats and base coats. I was a bit underwhelmed by their selection this time. OH! And I also bought a replacement white silkline polish. I might remember to snap a photo or three later on.

When I arrived home from that venture and starting to get ready, I had about 2 hours before my friend and I were going to see a movie, (we saw Legion by the way), so of course I had to do my nails. And of course I grabbed CG II.



This actually freaked me out.. In some lights, it did look like mannequin hands. When I reached out to grab things, I seriously scared myself. So.. I added some quick detail..




It helped. My nails didn't bother me as much anymore.. I took it off when I got home. Has that ever happened to anyone before though? Actually being bothered by the polish you're wearing? Leave me a comment and let me know.. I mean, I know I am a little strange, but I cannot be THAT strange.

Oh.. And.. The other night my sister was saying she had no inspiration for her nails.. So I welcomed her to check out the bulging folder that I have of nail art ideas. She was so pleased with what she had done.. And I was happy with how excited she was. I asked her if I could snap a photo and post it on here. She said of course.



Tuxedo nails! Cute huh? She is suuuuper pumped with her work.. So those of you reading this, if you have the time, leave her a comment that I can show to her!!

I hope you all are having a magnificent Monday - welcome to February!!

No you are not strange, I've had to go out and buy polish remover while I was at work to remove polish that I dislike! I don't mind your mannequin hands actually! The polish is nice! Can I spy a pink blush to it!? I like the detail too!

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
