Periwinkle Squares

Yes, I'm back. Two days in a row!

I think I am just super pumped because last night I actually got to put in an hour of reading.. with minor discomfort! Yes!

Oh, plus I have some photos of my little Bennie at the end - enjoy!


Here is what I used.. CG Secret Peri-Wink-Le & CG Liquid Leather. I was going to use a purple like the image does, buuuut.. I have a few untried and I really don't want them to become too many.. So CGSP it is! Also, I have been using two 'base' coats. I added OPI Matte Nail Envy into the mix because my nails are quite long right now.. And the crazy part is that they are all basically the same length.. I am just trying to avoid a nail break.. Once that happens I will clip down all my nails and start over again. Sigh. It is just nice to have these nice long nails again.

Inspiration picture..

My take...

These were actually kind of easy to do.. For the most part. A few of the 'squares' were filled in (like my pinky and ring fingers), but I just dabbed some black and tried to fix it up. Now, in the inspiration image, I do like the little gems and such they use.. But, I don't really like wearing little gems.. I find them to be impractical.

Ok, now the promised photo of Bennie. I think awhile back I said I wanted to get photos of him in his dust bath because it is amazing.. Well..
I had to toss in the last image.. He was so into his dust bath, he didn't notice his favourite non-toy: my camera. Then, mid swivel in the dust, he stopped and stared straight at me.. Then he tried to grab the camera cord. I adore him!

Whelp, that is all I have got to say for now.. I hope everyone will have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend! See you all next week (:

Excellent job. The jewels really aren't workable, I agree with you.

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
