7 Things About Me:
  1. I am currently awaiting my acceptance letter for school. I think I finally found something I really want to do! I will share more later as I really do not want to jinx that acceptance letter!
  2. I read. A. Lot. I actually keep track of the books I read.. I am hoping to actually get to 50+ books this year.. I only made it to 42 last year! I blame surgery getting in the way.. I enjoy excuses!
  3. I have a fondness for exclamation marks.
  4. I despise onions. I will actually sit and pick them out of my meal.. Even if they are tiny. Yet, I will eat an onion ring or two.. And that is all onion basically. I am strange.
  5. I have lost a lot of weight within the last 5 months. I don't notice it a lot.. Then you try on something that is sizes and sizes smaller and I have to choke back a sob. It isn't so much the amount, it is just the changes in everything. I am strongly in like with myself.
  6. I might have one of the strangest travel ipod mixes around.. It goes from The Talking Heads to The Roots.. Extremely slow/sad tunes to uptempo techno'y songs.. And I enjoy every minute of it!!
  7. I personally believe I have one of the most functionally 'dysfunctional' families ever.. I would never trade a moment I have shared with them.. Even the terrible times, as they helped to shape our closeness. Also, the friends that I have kept for many years.. They are my family as well.

I am awarding the following blogs:

Here is where I am bad with awards.. I never know exactly who I should tag.. I mean, what if I tag 15 people and someone else is like 'she is such a magoon.. why wouldn't she toss me the award?' - I would feel horrible! And I really do not enjoy that feeling. SO! Here is my proposal.. If you haven't been awarded this award and you want it.. Take it from me as an award.. Because honestly, anyone that follows me (I follow back!) - then you're obviously rad and I enjoy your blog!!

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:
 “DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics
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…
