Wicked Game

By Chris Isaak. I have loved this song for many, many years but did not have it on iTunes.. The other day my dad was saying that the CD I made for him a few years ago is finally starting to skip, so I imported all the songs and burnt him a new disc.. I forgot how many awesome tunes that CD had - one of them happened to be this gem. I fist pumped!

 
Soooo... Last night during the hockey game (Go Canada!!) I decided I would work on my nails during intermissions.. And I also decided that it was time to give OPI Jade Is The Black a go. MY GOODNESS!! I FREAKIN' LOVE THIS SHADE.. with my skintone that is. Plus it is in the green family and greens, plural, are my favourite colours/shade family in general.

 
I just didn't know what to do with my nails.. I mean, JITNB is gorgeous on its own, but that is so not me. Which made me grab another green that I adore, Orly Mint Mojito.. That still didn't make me go 'oh, I know what to do now!'

 
I grabbed a sucky silkline colour I have.. The only reason it stays around is for the brush.. I use it for any other polish.. Good times.. I dipped the brush in some Mint Mojito and just started painting lines.. Which turned into.. Well.. Allow me to show you..

 
 
 
 
It turned in to what I like to call the 'Minty Jade Criss Cross'. Looking at this photo, I am most disappointed with my painting skillz on my index finger, but oh well! I kind of love this. I forgot to snap a photo of my middle finger pre-polish, but you can see it is on a weird slant.. The nail is actually lifted on that side. I have no idea how I did this.. I think I beat myself up during sleep time.. I have awoken at times with scratches on my face and arms and a black eye once.. I wouldn't put it past myself..

 
Anyways! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday! I am off to finish laundry and glance at my messy room and walk away from cleaning it.. Sounds like a good day to me!!

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
