Sea Spray

I could not handle even 24 hours of just a polish.. I had to add SOMETHING to it..

I couldn't figure out what.. Then, after going to the gym with a pal and watching RED, I decided to play 'The Biggest Loser' on kinect.. I kept watching the water in the background, which led to what I painted on to my nails..



I admit, I apparently had the shakes last night.. I couldn't do any type of lines to save my life! All I did was take a white polish (I believe I used CG White Out), I placed a dot in a different position on every nail, then followed the dot out with lines.. I do like this.. It is tres simple, but effective. Maybe next time I attempt it, I won't be so shaky!

Have an awesome Thursday everyone! I have some errands to run, followed by painting and putting a room back together.. Should be fun!!

I am on the hunt for OPI Black Shatter - Thanks for the tip Alyssa!! - I plan on having it in my possession by the end of the day!!

I think this is a very nice mani, even though it's simple! I think I'm going to do this at some point..

this is really cute. what brush did you use to do the design? a normal paint brush? how long is the bristles? I saw some brushes that had bristles that were 2 inchs long..that's a really long paint brush..not sure if I could control the design with such a long end.

im having the problem where I keep changing my polish. i mean my polish does'nt even last long enough for some kind of design
I love what you did here. Its fun and quirky.

Yes! Name-checked!!! Haha, hope you got the Black Shatter alright :)

PS- I was running some errands earlier today, and lo and behold- the confectionary across the street from your house had one sad, dusty bottle of SH Hidden Treasures tucked at the back of a display. I died from happiness.

This is really neat. I like the organic quality of it. Reminds me of elevation lines on topographical maps. <3

Gorgeous! I love it! And I can't believe you freehanded those lines so neatly!

I just found your blog, so decided to look at your previous posts. I really like this one, somehow it reminds of fingerprints - maybe I've watched to many episodes of CSI!

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…
