Welcome 2011

With a photo of my nails.. And some goodies I have picked up in the last few days.

I guess I will first start off with my fail NYE mani. I was so pumped to finally try Essie Little Brown Dress that I completely forgot that it was NYE. Duh. I just decided to sponge on some glitter ala OPI Sparkle-icious.. Then I added some star shaped glitter. I didn't totally hate it, but, I forgot to press the star glitter in to the polish.. It started lifting pretty badly. I had enough time at the end of running errands that day (yesterday) to snap a photo before the horrid removal process.


One of these days I will give Little Brown Dress the love and attention that it so deserves.

After I took off that disaster.. I was flipping through the InStyle January magazine.. And found this..

EDIT: This is where the scan of the image/article WOULD BE.. Now add in that my scanner is being extremely lame. Hopefully I can get it working asap.. Then all will make sense!!

It is Ruffian-esque.. But with some colours that I kind of like.. I of course had to test it out. I used CG Liquid Leather and Rimmel Lasting Pro Finish Steel Grey. After my shift today, I came home.. Have some very minor tip wear (and that is after working in the dish pit - yay!!) and I decided to finally test out a matte top coat. Second photo is with CG Matte Magic top coat.



Now some photos of goodies I have picked up in the last few days..
 Essie polishes in Sew Psyched & Merino Cool
 
 Orly Rage, CG Atlantis, Nail Life gripper base coat (LOVE!) and Orly Ridgefiller
Pack of 10 nail polish and art wheels, A.S.P (All Season Professional) 'Manicure Saver' - it grips the cotton balls for you.. I'm thinking it will be great for cleaning konad plates! A 10 pack of DL professional brushes and Tropical Shine mini 4-way buffer.

Yeah, I finally went to Sally's Beauty Supply.

Anyways, that is all for now! Hope everyone is having a great start to 2011! I am going to go watch a flick or play some kinect.. Or.. something!!

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
