Scribbled Paint

That is what I think about when I see this image plate used..

I was feeling a bit lazy the other day.. That and I had about 30 minutes until it was errand running time.. BUT! I had naked nails. I do not like that.

I had Little Drummer Boy still sitting at the desk.. So I slapped on some of that.. Then sprinted to the collection area and nabbed Adore and an image plate.



Sorry for the messy photo. I took another photo two days later, but there is some chipping on my index nail. What I am excited about is that I have been working a bit more on the light box. The polish bottle photo is using the improved box. I haven't perfect my camera settings to it yet.. And I am not sure if I like the lamp/light YET, but I don't want to correct things too much to this camera as my Christmas gift to myself will be a new camera. This bad boy is just over 3 years old. He has served his purpose!

Oh, the colours used are: CG Little Drummer Boy & CG Adore stamped with konad image plate m70.

I was procrastinating cleaning up my room and or computer desk.. Get started.. Then decide to do this post instead. Now I start back at work tomorrow.. Gee.. I guess this cleaning will have to wait until next week (;

Have an excellent weekend everyone! Yay for staff Christmas party tomorrow!! I might have to do my nails up.. But we are going bowling.. hmm.. tough call!!

  • Zara - They were pretty great! Sadly I didn't get any photos of them.. I waited til the next day AFTER work, and they were chipped everywhere. It was still fun for a day!!
  • KarenD - Haha glad I am not the only one that thought they could be similar! Now I am just glad that I second guessed my second guess (a third guess?) and bought it anyways.
  • Lois - I am really glad I have both!! And I know, I am seriously the worst for that!!
  • shortwidenails - Haha, I so should have! Then maybe it would have gone differently :( I don't think I have anything that can dupe anything else I have.. I am just starting to work on getting photos of all my polish.. So I guess we'll see in a bit. I'm nervous about having dupes.. Then I will just be angry with myself! Even angrier if I have been using both and not noticing as well (;

Very ambitious for a 30-minute mani; it turned out nice!

muwahahaha. bowling + nice nails. I guess if you concentrated very hard on protecting your nails..but then you wouldn't have fun at all.

I don't own this plate but I may have to get it.

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…
