Playing With Goodies

This evening, after I returned home from a friends house, I came to the computer desk and looked over at the goodies that had been sent to me. Then, an idea formed. Sure, I don't want to take off my current mani, so why not bust out the fake nails and go to town?

Perfect.



First, the C/Krackle polish. Love. It. I am actually going to take off my 5 point flower mani tomorrow (after running a bunch of errands) and slap this on. I might even use the same colours. I didn't add the thumb in as it just didn't work. I am not sure if it is because I used a glitter polish or what - but I will work on that! After they were done crackling, I topped it with Seche Vite. I am really excited to do this to my own nails!

Then we have an attempt at Cheetah print.. I think I am starting to maybe get the hang of it? Although, despite what I am saying, I actually kind of love this. I used CG II as the base, then used my new love, dotting tool, along with OPI OPI & Apple Pie. Then I added the orange coloured rhinestones for some.. dimension!

Ok, so, this look was probably the most disappointing to me. I just couldn't get the pearls to go where I wanted and my bows are a bit wonky.. And adding the glitter was.. Well, anyways! I used OPI A Shorts Story followed by Street Wear Glitter. Then I used some of the pearls for the middle of the bow. Cute idea, I just need to execute it better!!

Now something that I wasn't enjoying while painting it, but then loved it afterward.. Started off with OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue (which I am disappointed that I have never used before!!!) followed with some sections of Orly Halleys Comet. Then I went rhinestone crazy..

So, that is it for now.. I just bought Essie Little Brown Dress and am kind of dying to test it out! I think I just might have to do that!

I hope everyone has an amazing Friday night and a great weekend (:

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
