Poster Sale

I know.. Not a song title.. Actually, it could be, but if it is, I have never met this tune!!

I used the title 'poster sale' because I went to a poster sale this morning with my sister. The university here holds an annual poster sale.. I have never gone and neither has my sister.. And she REALLY wanted to scope it out. So I agreed to go with her.. And it was AH-MAH-ZING! I quickly snapped some photos of my purchases.. But first I will show you my nails..



I wanted to use OPI Mad As A Hatter, but wasn't entirely sure how.. So I went accent nail. This was boring to me, so I added a diagonal stripe of MAAH.. And silver tape.. The tape came off before I went to sleep last night.. I didn't even snap a photo because I was so angry. I was even angry enough to painstakingly take off the polish without using the foil method. Anyways, a new look I will put on later this afternoon. I am thinking red.. with dots.. and bows.. I have seen some new YT vids (:

Ok.. Poster pictures! I am really excited about these. My mom was like 'why would you buy a bunch of posters?' I told her they were an investment in artwork for my future home/apt/condo/etc.. Plus I told her we'd be framing them soon.. That seemed to get her to leave me alone about them!! I only bought 4.. well, it should have been 5.. But when I got up there to get my posters, they were sold out of one of the images that caught my eye the most! Grr.. Oh well.. I could probably recreate it myself whenever I feel like picking up my paintbrushes for something besides my nails. My sister bought a whooooole bunch, but I will just show mine!


This was the first poster I chose.. Now, I am not one for blatant advertising.. Nor am I the type of person to have my home littered with images supporting companies that I hardly own any of.. BUT! The lady walking in that amazing plaid skirt and jacket? LOVE! Plus it is a black and white print.


Here is the second gem I chose. I have actually seen images similar to this one.. But I needed to own it. Again, black and white with a pop of colour.. Totally my thing!


Third choice.. Umm.. The green in the background matches my walls perfectly! I was like 'eeehhhh.. I don't really need it..' and my sister was like 'it matches your walls, plus I know you want it, write it down'.. So I did. And am super happy that I did!


Anyone else notice a trend in what I like? Pops of colours! I looked at so many NYC skyline prints and posters.. And was like 'I don't really need them'.. I probably saw this one in 5 different sizes.. Then when we were waiting in line to hand in our tickets, it was displayed once again.. It was like a sign. I had to have it!

The whole morning was amazing! I am kind of disappointed in myself that I have missed out on this sale the past few years.. I have never seen so many great images on display in one place.. Unless it was a gallery. I cannot wait for next year!!

I hope everyone has a FIERCE Friday.. OH! I should be getting my polishes today.. I requested 2 colours from the new OPI collection.. And CG polish.. I am not going to announce colour names - I don't want to jinx myself!!

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
