Mr. Brightside

By The Killers. Again, my iTunes is choosing a song that is actually quite fitting. The nails I am posting are fairly bright.. Haha.. Sorry, had to! I loved The Killers album Hot Fuss, but have been less than thrilled about their last two.. Which is upsetting, but I still have Hot Fuss to go off of, and there isn't one song that I skip through when I listen to the whole album - that is always a good sign!!

I am actually going to show all of you something else that I do when I am going to do my nails but not at my computer desk.. I saw the original image for this on another site and totally forgot to save it.. I just grabbed an index card and drew it out and then closed the window (silly Dee) - so if any of you happen to come across it, let me know! Or if I find it again, I will post it up.. It is way better than mine.. I had a serious case of shakey hands going on and could not make a straight line to save my life!! Oh, and I added another 'tutorial'.. I really need to figure out a better lighting situation.. Anyways! Photo time:










I seriously had random people grabbing at my hands all week.. Which isn't as strange as it sounds!

Also something strange.. I pretty much have another post to do right away.. I actually have things prepared early! I will either do it tonight or tomorrow as it isn't a V-Day look because I'll have to post that up either tomorrow or Sunday - phew!

I also received a challenge that I am super pumped about.. I will include my first 'draft' of that idea in the next post because I liked it but am not overjoyed about it.. Plus I used a fake nail because I had just done this look.. I want to do it on my own nails and all that jazz.

Whelp, I hope everyone is having a freakin' fabulous Friday!!

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…
