No Song Title

Yes, I am being extremely lazy today! But I just wanted to do a quick post before I decide to read, do art or game.. Or nap. Yeeeah.. LAZY FRIDAY!

I went out to do a little birthday shopping (not for me.. that is next month!) but for my daaaad! But of course that means I have to do a bit of shopping for myself. After hitting up Sears, I decided to stop in at Dutch Growers.. Which I mentioned back in the day.. They are a konad supplier and after using konad (well, technically I used an Essence plate last night..) I decided to treat myself! Plus one of my friends has a birthday coming up and she told me that she likes using konad - yay! I did buy one plate for her (she likes the french tips only..) but I might have to keep it for myself.. and get her something else.. We'll see.

 
I bought plates M70 and M45.. Oh, and my camera really hates me today so I apologize for the terribad quality of photos.. I think I snapped about 20 photos of everything and just nothing was working. Blah! I also bought the double ended stamper because I like the idea of using that small side for the smaller images.. and full images for my baby sized pinky nail.
After going there it was time for a quick run to Zellers.. I actually didn't want to go to the cosmetics section because I didn't want to see nail polish.. BUT.. I went because I needed my favourite exfoliating scrub and such.. 


 
I nabbed the Art Deco nail art 'lacquers' first.. I have never tried this brand, but figured I would give them a whirl.. Plus I read somewhere that you can use them with konad? That would be super as these were $2 compared to the $7 konad polish (again, I paid through the nose for the konad stuff, so next time I will just order online!) Then, as I was leaving, I noticed these Wet n Wild polishes on the bottom rack.. And this cute little bottled colour caught my eye! It photographed lighter than it actually is.. It is like a smokey purple.. LOVE IT! It is called 'Bite the Bullet' - I cannot wait to try it!
 
My nails currently.. Kind of suuuucky, but oh well! I used OPI Sapphire in the Snow, an Essence image plate (thank you Secret Santa exchange :D) and CG Devotion. It is a cute idea, I just need to work on my stamping skillz! It will be nice to just use a stamp sometimes instead of trying to paint everything!
Once I returned home it was about 2:30.. Finally at about 3:04 I decided to check the amazon website because I was expecting a shipment today.. But figured maybe they date changed it and it would arrive Monday, nbD as long as it arrives before Thursday aka the dad's birthday.. I ordered him a DVD along with some books for myself.. Anyways, check the website..

 
Delivered? SAY WHAT! I race upstairs and my mom is on the phone to her mom.. I of course interrupt this conversation.. 'Did someone ring the bell?' 'No honey, what's up?' 'It says my package was delivered.. So weird..' 'Well, there was a dark haired guy looking around.. Yes mom, the one I told you about..'.. I open the door, look around, nothing.. Look at the mailbox - PACKAGE! Yay! Now I don't have to wait and worry about it being delivered. Plus I finally have reading material again.
Wait, didn't I say this would be a quick post? Geez! I'm done now!!

Have a fantastic Friday everyone (:

Your Comments... ANSWERED!
  • Tierney - I still have to shorten them.. Or maybe I'll just have to post them up novel style - and I really liked yours, they are all wonderful things!!
  • gildedangel - It was one of those things where I didn't really feel it until I saw it.. I knew moving that book shelf that a nail had broken, but then I saw it and it STUNG! Of course my brother was like 'you're such a girl!' but for once that actually hurt. Boys.. And thank you! It can use some work and I need to tell my sister to keep the bottles neat.. Polish all over the place!!
  • susies1995 - Thankies doll!! It was kind of nice to see all my gems face to face at the same time, haha!

Love your nails! I need to start using my konad stuff again.. I haven't for awhile and that won't help me get better at it. Haha.
What you said about buying stuff for yourself while shopping for other people made me laugh. Back in January I was trying to figure out what to get one of my friends, she is really hard to shop for. I ended up buying myself new shoes before I finally found something for her. They were on sale though :P
Oh and happy almost birthday to your dad!

Really nice. It is fun to shop for ourselves whenever we are out and about. :)
Have fun,

zellers has a pretty good nail polish sale when it comes around..I try really hard to avoid them..but seriously the sale is awesome

for the LA colors I tried white and it works with konad. try the dollar stores the dollar store in my area called everything under a dollar (a lie cus sometimes are above a dollar) sells them for $1.


nail breaks suck..they are quite frequent for me because I am really really rough..but the worst part right now is nail peeling/ chipping. I'm looking for a strength nail top coat right now.

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
