Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

By Sir Elton John. I love him!! I don't like all his songs, but the tunes I do like I end up playing a ton. Like this one. It is just so good! For some reason it calms me down. I think I have listened to it over 100 times in the last few days.. Since my beautiful little baby DJ passed away (sadface x 1 million.)

Hello lovelies!! I have a post with a slight tutorial with it. When doing this tutorial business I noticed something: my camera is terribad!! We have been together for.. 3 years now I think.. And he is just so outdated. My sister bought herself a camera around Christmastime that has 12.whatever mega pixels and the picture she takes are STUNNING! My little bad boy here has 7.2, which isn't terrible, but I am wondering if someone has done something to my camera and hasn't told me :(

Plus I think I should look into building a lightbox for my photos as well. Maybe I will get on with that today.

PLUS! I am going to making another post hopefully later today with an idea I thought up yesterday! Ok, now to the photoy-goodness..
The Inspiration

What I Used


The Finished Look

The Steps

I am not sure if the guide will be helpful, but I figured if someone saw this wacky look and wanted to know how to go about executing it, I would lend a hand! I used a bobby pin for the dots and just went for it. I came across this photo (it was just an image littered amongst many others from a Japanese nail art magazine) and I knew I had to try it.

For the most part I do really like it.. I think the black 'strap' is strange though.. Not to say I don't like it.. It is just really different!!

Oh, and a quick snap of what I picked up at CosmoProf the other day..
Alrighty.. Time for me to go do some cleanup.. And not on my nails (heh) - and I tried clean up around the edges with acetone.. Black polish + acetone = angry stained skin!!



  •  gildedangel - Thank you doll! I will let my sister see that comment - she will be pleased!
  • Danielle - Thank you for assuring me I am not totally out to lunch!! And good eye - there is some tiny pink 'particles' within the polish!

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…
