Analogous Nails

Polish Hoarder Disorder (PHD) posted up the Analogous Color Challenge, so of course I had to accept it! (It was extremely difficult to not add a 'u' to colour)

And of course I chose the Yellow, Green-Yellow and Green spectrum.


I am not sure whether I have mentioned it before or not, but I work at a retirement home (as well as my sister) and the residents always enjoy seeing what we have done with our nails. There is one table of ladies in particular that always give input and I think once they started making a big fuss about our nails, everyone else has to grab our hands to see them. Sometimes it makes serving take longer, but I don't mind. Sometimes they even give me ideas.

Now, why am I giving you this background information you ask? Well, yesterday while I was serving, the ladies at aforementioned table of course all had to get a closer look. Then one of the ladies, really loudly, said: 'those green nails are hideous!'. Now, usually she isn't so blunt.. So I was like 'Awwwe -insert name here-, you don't like them?' then she said 'oh no, I like them, I just hate green!' - It just goes to show that while some people favour a colour, others really hate it.. Anyways.. Random story.

I hope everyone is having an excellent week thus far! I need to kill a few hours before I hang out with a friend.. We're going to go look at cell phones then have ice cream. Sounds like a solid evening! I may just return home with an iphone.. Depending on monthly costs and such. We shall see! Oh! Plus it is in the mall.. Maybe I can sneak in to Claire's and find me some of those mood polishes.. Oh the possibilities!!

Your Comments Answered
  • AggiePigeon - I did a little reading on the Orly creme you speak of.. I kind of like the sounds of it.. Plus I kind of heart the brand! Thank you for tossing out that suggestion, I think I might just have to order it!! And I agree, it is a lovely colour!!
  • nailsss - Haha! I totally agree! It really does! I actually did get a ton of compliments on this one. And lots of random people grabbing my hands to look/touch my nails.
  • Lily nail - Thank you very much (:
  • shortnails - It is just a little yellowy-orange sponge I picked up from Michaels in a sponge variety pack (ha!) I will try to remember to snap a photo of it next time.. You could totally cut the cotton balls in half - I did! I just put on enough remover to cover my nail.. I know it does seem like a waste, but, I would imagine that you wouldn't be wearing glitter nails ALL the time.. Right? So that way if it is only once in awhile it isn't so bad.. I figure it usually takes me 10+ cotton balls to finish the job using elbow grease, I might as well toss in some tin foil for good measure (:

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
