The Reader Challenge + A Quick Look


Reader Challenge.. I can hear a you all asking ‘what is the reader challenge?’.. Well, I am not so sure it is a challenge, but more so for some reader input!

The Challenge is for my lovely readers out there (yes, you!). Have you ever come across a nail art image that you are too scared to try/just don’t know how to go about doing it? WELL! I will try it out for you. I can post up tutorial pictures of how I went about doing it so that you can either just see it done (to the best of my ability) or learn some easy routes to trying it out yourself.

I don’t believe in difficult methods. I think things should be simple yet effective. In my perfect world (aka my mind) I feel being ‘challenged’ at least once a week would be great, but I’ll settle for every once in awhile. I will leave this challenge up on the side bar so that it will always be a constant reminder.

There are a couple of ways to go about this. First, you either have to send me a photo of your idea or just explain it and I will draw it out and double check to make sure it is what you were thinking of. Second, sending your idea and or picture to me – it can be done via e-mail (delaynee88@hotmail.com) or just leave it as a comment and I will get to it.

I am not sure what the response will be on this, but I was working on my nails last night while gaming and figured I would issue this ‘challenge’ and see if anyone would take me up on it.

I don’t care how difficult it is.. I will post the photos up even when I fail – I am trying to have no shame!!

I think it could be a lot of fun.. So please, any crazy/fun/silly/pretty/ugly nail art designs you have come across.. Challenge meeee!! I have a lot of images myself, but I’d like to see what others can come up for me to try.

Thankies for your time!


Now for some quick looks.. My mom had asked me if I would paint her nails for her.. So of course I did! It is like a sickness.. I will people to ask me to do their nails! She said I could do whatever with whatever colours.. But the last time she said that and I tried to use red, well, it didn't happen. Using CG II, Orly Glam Rock, Black SilkLine and my trusty bobby pin..





She is really happy with them and so am I. It allowed me to practice 'cheetah print'. Then, since painting her nails again reminded me of the red nail polish debacle, I decided to use red on myself. I used Essie Lollipop, OPI Alpine Snow, Black SilkLine and my trusty bobby pin..




The bows are not too impressive.. Anyways.. There was my quick (massive) update!
 
Enjoy the rest of your magnificent Monday!!

Okay, I really don't have any specific ideas really.. But I'm always trying to think of ocean or beachy nail art. Also, I think I need to learn how to do cupcakes, my younger sister loves all things cupcake.

Just a couple ideas!

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
