Suede Flowers

Just a quick post as I have to run out with the bro (Happy Birthday!!!) and exchange his new jeans.. AGAIN! I thought birthday gifts were supposed to be easy..

The other night I took to my twitter to ask for an idea on how to polish up thee old nails. Gingerkittyd said I should konad with matte polish over glossy polish.. Sounded amazing! But sadly a combination of things kept this look from happening. 1. My stamping skillz are not up to par 2. I just couldn't get anything to go well. Once I did have all my nails stamped, I hated it!! Not the idea, I just thought it looked sloppy (it was all my fault though!!)

So. Removed everything and started again. I didn't know what to do and I was too lazy to go grab a brush, so I used a pencil with my suede polish and made these flowery.. things?


I apologize for the chips. We went to my friends cabin for the weekend.. Of course I forgot to take the picture beforehand. Still, without a top coat, this actually held out fairly well.

My favourite part is that when we were driving home on Sunday, we decided to stop for a sit-down-meal at Boston Pizza before finishing our trip. Just before we left, I ran to use the washroom and this little girl was outside the door.. I went to push the door open and she said 'your nails are beautiful'... I was elated! I said 'thank you so much sweetie' and went on my way. That comment made me feel better for the rest of the trip home. (Right now road trips take a ton of energy away from me.. It makes me sad!) So at least I was happy when I fell asleep for a bit.. Hah!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is having a great week! Gotta run!!

Love it!!!
That reminds me of when time when I was at the ice rink, a little kid was waiting for his lesson to start and he came over and told me I had beautiful blue nails. It was adorable.

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:

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…
