AFK

I feel like I have been AFK regarding blogging for a loooong time! Reason? I have been lazy.. Actually, that isn't really fair. I have actually been back at work quite a bit.. And after not being there for 6 weeks, a single shift weighs me down!! When I have a day off, I sleep for a least 10 hours (max has been set at 14 hours). I know, that is probably bad, but I was told that if I am tired, I should sleep/rest, so I am!!

I just wanted to pop on here quickly to post some photos for Li Lian. She asked to see a swatch of CoverGirl's NailSlicks in Khaki - and, with that, your request has been filled!!


A photo with flash and a photo without. I actually really do like this shade.. I thought it would be a bit darker, but it is more goldish than anything else. Both of these snaps are using three quick and thin coats of polish. The next time I use it, I am going thick.

I was debating posting a photo of myself that I just took moments before because I actually (for some weird reason) feel really pretty right now. Maybe it was from feeling super gross all day long and then feeling a bit better and messing around with hot rollers.. I don't know.. I guess maybe next time.. We'll see - I don't want to scare anyone away!!

Now I have to run.. It is my brother's first exhibition hockey game of the season! Hopefully he'll make the team (like they have a choice.. he is amazing!!) - Have a great night ladies!

Expect some nail artage next week. I am in the dishpit at work for the next 4 days so painting my nails is redundant!!

yay!! thanks for the awatch. For some reason I just really like the nailslick colors. I think they are really unique..this one included. i'm going to post a picture of my bottle later...it's all evaporated and empty but I don't have the heart to throw it away.

what is a dish pit? do you work in a restaurant?

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

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!

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
