Atlantis Zebra

Hello everyone!!

Hope you all had a great week! The start to mine was a bit crazy.. For some reason I decided it would be rad to work two shifts on Sunday.. Basically 16/24 hours worked. It has led me on a strange path of sleep deprivation aka destruction of my life. At least my next pay cheque is going to UHmazing. I need to start saving for Edmonton anyways..

Now that the intro is out of the way, let's move on to what I am currently sporting on my nails..



There is a definite possibility that I took 43 photos and these were the two that I liked the best.. And they are still not so great. CG Atlantis was being a major pain for photographing. BUT! I am happy to report that my new camera is back in business! Thank you ebay for saving me $44 (plus taxes) for a new charger PLUS spare battery.






These are the gems I used: Nail Life Gripper Base Coat, CG Atlantis, CG Liquid Leather, Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, and my handy nail art brush.. That I still keep in the gross yellow polish as it keeps the brush in tip top shape.

I hope you'll all have a great weekend! The next couple of weeks are going to get a bit insane via work, but I am hoping to still sneak in at least one post a week! Also, I have been working on getting a swatch of each polish I use. Not only to keep cataloged on here for all of you, but also to ease my troubled mind.

Take care til next time!!



  • Swaafie - You really should! You would do such a great job with it!!
  • shortwidenails - I will show you a close up of the brush that I love! I did buy a set of brushes last month, but haven't really used them.. Anyways, the brush..


is like that.. nothing too serious.. Sometimes I have that happen to.. I still do designs even when I know they are going to get wrecked the next day. I cannot help myself!! Oh, and here is a photo of the SH Nail Art Pen - it is like working with a permanent marker, basically..

  • Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes - Thank you! I thought so too (:
  • Alyssa - Hah, I thought about it after and wondered if I should just have put 'A' - as long as it is ok, your name will stay as is!! Bah! If I would have known you were looking for that gem - I would have told you!! I found it once at a Shoppers, and then saw that display at 'The Store'. I am just glad you have it now!!
  • amelia - Well, sometimes I am not so creative, but I am an okay copy-artist (: But thankies!!
  • JQ - That is an awesome comparison! I would have never thought of that!! Thank you!
  • Musicalhouses - Thank you for thinking they are neat! I was right next to displeased with my work, but, it seems that people really quite liked it (:

Nice. I love Atlantis and I hate that it tends to be shy when trying to get a very good photo of it.

This is very pretty, I keep practicing that zebra stripe - I'll 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! 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
