Here I Go Again

On my own!! Going down the only road I've ever known.. Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.. But I've made up my mind.. I ain't wasting no more time!! Umm.. Sorry.. This song is by Whitesnake and I seriously have had this song on repeat in my brain. I have been singing it like crazy too.. Last night while gaming I was singing it as well.. My brother had his mic on.. So the 'boys' laughed at me.. Good times!!

Sorry if I go off track a smidge in this post.. I had blood taken about an hour ago.. And I'm jittery from it! Sadly I have problematic veins in my arms aka they do not want people to take blood from them.. So they have to take from my hand.. And then I get the shakes and my hand becomes weak for the day.. And bruises.. Yay!

Yesterday I rushed through doing my nails because I was going to go out for supper and then shop for supplies with my friend before our weekend escape (T - 5 hours! Woo!) BUT! Thinking back, it was waaay better to do them yesterday because my hand will be too shakey today. What a thinker I am.. Either that or I can work my way out of any situation.. Anyways!!


First two photos are mine.. w/o and with flash. Third photo is the inspiration picture. I realize that it should be more of a teal colour and a darker purple in there.. But I switched it up a bit!!

I used: OPI What's With The Cattitude?, OPI Jade Is The New Black, Essie Mesmerize, OPI No Room For The Blues, OPI A Grape Fit! & CG Liquid Leather.

This was actually a lot of fun to do! I thought I would be getting all angry and do a shotty job, but I don't think it is too bad!!

I have so many "inspiration" photos from these nail art magazines, yet none of them just make me want to do my nails.. Hopefully this weekend away will recharge my copying skills and I'll be ready to start power-housing through these magazines!!

Also, I need a name for these gems! I usually name my photos before I slap them into MY nail folder.. Yet I have no witty/lame/fun name for these bad boys - any suggestions?

Anyways, I hope everyone has a RAD weekend! I will try to be doing the same (:

Are they a bit Art Deco? But I can't think of an amusing name.

I La-Lique them. (If Lalique is anything to do with Deco. I could google it, I suppose...)

I hate it when they say, "Collapsing veins." It sounds as if you are on the verge of death! It frightened me so much the first time I heard it.

Feel strong soon.

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!

This is actually …

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 and desires of T.…

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
