Peachy Pink

I finally got around to using my CG Peachy Keen polish.. It has been sitting in my untried drawer for a few moments in time..

I started off by painting my nails with it and just figured I would decide what to do after painting it on.. And omigosh! What a colour!! I didn't think it would be so.. bright? I figured it would be a touch more brilliant than CG II, but it is totally different! I actually kind of love this polish..

Once it was dry-ish (I am not a patient person when it comes to drying time on polish), I decided try and gradient pinks.. I used this Essence gem that I got in the Elfster Secret Santa exchange.. And I notice it when I look at my nails, but it was very faint, so instead of work on the gradient effect, I just grabbed a sponge and sponged on OPI Elephantastic Pink. I actually really enjoy this subtle yet in-yo-face look! It is perfect for summer.. Now if we could only begin summer here..


Now a question.. I do believe I have reached a plateau with my cuticle cream. It just doesn't seem to be doing as well as it once did.. Here in lies the question.. What cuticle creams do you use/like/have heard good things about.. I have read quite a bit on the Lush cuticle cream.. And according to friends we actually have one here situated in a mall.. I could venture out and get it.. But of course I want to check with the polish crowd first. Lemme know!

I hope everyone is having a terrific Thursday and will continue to have a wonderful week!!

  • Tierney - Thankies doll! And I am seriously not worried about when it gets sent out.. I just know that one of these days I will have it in my possession and all will be well! I picked up a 'thing' or two for you, so hopefully I will get those gems shipped out asap as well!!
  • ThRiSzHa - Thank you (: you flatterer you (: Actually, this works out well because I always love the creations you post!!
  • shortnails - Actually, I stuck fake nails on to my nails.. Only because I knew I would be using large amounts of glitter and I did not want to cry during removal - heh! BUT! Awhile back, on a blog somewhere out there.. They posted about the 'foil method' for removing glitter polishes. You put your polish remover on cotton balls, apply said cotton balls to the nail, then wrap the fingertip in tin foil and let sit for a couple of minutes. Afterwards, you just take off the tinfoil and the polish should basically all be removed. I did use this method and it seriously works! I think there were two nails that I had to 'scrub' for a swipe or two. So much better then taking an hour to remove manually!!

I haven't tried the Lush Lemony Flutter but I use Orly Cuticle Therapy Creme and I find it to be quite awesome myself. Love that Peachy Keen, such a pretty color, nice sponging!

what sponge did you use? it looks really gradient like. When I sponge stuff on its like blob...not even close to gradient looking. maybe my sponge does not have enough holes.

Okay..I won't lie ..i'm cheap. I heard about the cotton ball/ aluminum foil technique but I have never used it because I'm afraid that it uses way too much polish remover and 10 cotton balls, one of each finger. Maybe I need to cut the cotton balls in half. The cotton balls have to be really drenched right?

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
