A Comparison To Ease My Mind

The other day I ventured in to the Chatters supply store.. Now, in my defense, I was actually trying to find a bottle of Party Hearty for someone else (: BUT! Of course I was snooping around.. Me snooping around nail polish is never a good idea.

I picked up a bottle of Little Drummer Boy.. And LOVED it. Then more wandering.. Then I looked at it again and put it back.. Because my mind was telling me I had something really close to it at home. After setting it back down, I found the Burlesque collection.. And nabbed a bottle of Glow Up Already (green glitter.. of course I had to have it!).. I was about to pay, but instead I turned around and grabbed Little Drummer Boy again.


When I got home.. I looked at Little Drummer Boy with delight, but that nagging feeling came back. I searched through the polish collection and spotted Midnight Mission. My brain yelled 'see! see! SEE!!!!'


Little Drummer Boy is on the left, Midnight Mission to the right. To my absolute delight.. They are quite different! I now feel I am justified to own both! Though.. I have to say.. Midnight Mission looks like Russian Navy Suede when I add a top coat.. Oh well!! I am just happen to have both of these gems within my collection.

Now to quickly remove this and green up my nails. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are in the Grey Cup (Canadian version of the Super Bowl) final today.. Against Montreal.. Who beat us last year because of a devastating call.. Anyways! Redemption time! I am thinking green and sparkley.. (:

They definitely don't lookalike, you did a good thing buying that polish, haha! I'm exactly the same, even though I only need one thing, I always come back with more!

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
