Turn That Frankenstein...

...Into A Frankenfine.. I'm sorry. I'm slightly sleep deprived and have random quotes swimming in my mind. I am pretty sure that is from Dodgeball..

I just got back from my travels to my 3 month post-op appointment (I have to travel to another city (Regina), which is about 2.5 hours away..) - AND - All appears to be going quite well for me.

On the way home, the father and I made detours and I got four massive pumpkins! 2 for moi and 2 for the sister. 4 pumpkins weighing in at a grand total of 108 lbs! Insanity! Now I have to figure out what I want to carve.. Or possibly make stencils (my genius favourite friend explained pumpkin stencil making to me the other day.. I would have never guessed!)

Anyways! Enough about my day.. Well, the beginning of my day. I am going to show you all what I am currently sporting. The video tutorial (not by me!) can be found HERE.


I have been getting compliments by everyone. And, they are super easy to do! And.. well, they are quite cute! My sister and I were actually watching 'Hocus Pocus' the other night (when I painted these bad boys) and they actually remind me of Billy from the movie. Moving on..


For this I used: Seche Clear Base Coat, OPI Who The Shrek Are You, CG Liquid Leather, SH Salon All The White Stuff and, of course, Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

THEN! When I arrived home, I was getting ready to race to my computer and formulate a letter to TD about my order.. I placed it on September 22.. And it is October 12.. It has NEVER taken them longer than a week to arrive to me.. Luckily enough, a mini package was waiting for me! Yay!

Here we have CG: Zombie Zest, Ick-A-Bod-Y & Mummy May I, Orly Halleys Comet, OPI Ski Teal We Drop, and CND: Colour Urban Oasis and Effects Teal Sparkle.

 I am obviously extremely excited about all of them.. But I am particularly excited to try the CND. PLUS! They have colour with the amazing Canadian 'u'. I am really not one for layering, but after the fun I had testing out the Dr. Pepper mani, this seems like a good plan!

I am a bit sad though.. I wish these would have arrived a few days earlier.. I would have swapped out Who The Shrek Are You and used Zombie Zest instead. Ahh well.. Now to use these three Halloween inspired polishes to finish off my Halloween Month themed nails!!

Have a great day everyone!

  • Zara - Yay! Thank you! That took me awhile to get them just *so*
  • shortwidenails - I thought it would take forever to dry, but it actually wasn't too bad. I also thought I would catch them on everything and have to change the mani soon after.. It lasted me a full week!!

It's been a while since I've been around the blogosphere but I just have to say that I LOVE this. I might just have to try some monsters of my own now. :D

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:

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…
