The Sister's Haul

Hey everyone!!

Sorry I haven't posted yet this week - I honestly do not know where the week went!

I have a photo to post of the polishes that my sister hauled recently. She was out and about (aka shopping) and had phoned me while I was at work to let me know she had bought some China Glaze pack and an OPI polish. Once she told me it was from the Christmas collection, I was immediately asking her if she saw a polish called 'Party Hearty' - she had. She didn't buy that one though, she had bought the trio pack with the two greens (Mistletoe Kisses & Jolly Holly) as well as a gold (Midnight Kiss). She was also pumped because they had a display for the Burlesque collection - she picked up Sparkle-icious - which I was really happy about as it was on my list to buy!

So, starting from the top: CG Midnight Kiss & Mistletoe Kisses, OPI Sparkle-icious, CG Party Hearty & Jolly Holly.

Oh, wait - what is that? You see Party Hearty when I said she didn't pick it up? Yeah. I asked her (maybe a little forcefully..) to go back in and please please please pick up Party Hearty! And she did (:

These are the nails I am currently sporting. Sorry, a pre-clean-up photo!! I actually filmed a bit of a tutorial for them. I e-mailed the genius mind behind SuPa Nails to make sure it is okay to use them/make a video about them. We'll see!

I am going to a wedding tomorrow, and I think they will complement my dress. It is just a dark purple.. So I might as well have fun with my nails. Oh, and well, my shoes. They are cheetah print flats. What can I say? I don't really go to weddings (:

I hope everyone had an amazing week! AND that you all will have a great weekend!!

  • Pretty - Thankies! I am feeling tres better now!!
  • shortwidenails - Yeah, I have no idea what it was. It was definitely flu-esque and terrible! Yet, I didn't really pass it on to anyone? Maybe it was specifically designed just for moi! I do use a tiny brush. I should probably snap a photo of it one of these days. It is basically my best friend for nails.
  • Sylvia - Thankies (:
  • Lacey - I wish I had her creative mind! Thankfully I can just copy her ideas and hope for the best!!
  • Zara - Thank you and thank you (:

Are you turning your sister into a nail polish addict???? muwhahaha!!! I'm still on the fence for party hearty. I'm wait until I see what you do with party hearty then i'll decide if I want to get it or not =) yes, I value your pictures/ matching colors very much and thus will wait until you show party hearty then I will decide if I will purchase it or not =)

I think you should post a picture of your dress. I won't lie, i'm having hard time matching your nails to leopard print shoes since you said your nails are like your dress? or is your dress a plain color?

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…
