Gem Nails + Two New Kids

Last week, my friend asked me if I could do her nails (we will call her by my favourite nickname for her: Yaz). She really liked the nails that Samantha was sporting in SATC2. Yaz loaned me the other, which I watched on the computer so I could screen cap the nails as I could not find them via the internet ANYWHERE!

Then we did our take on them. Yaz has gel nails, and when she went to get them filled, they didn't have a nice dark blue (like Sam has) - so she decided on a lovely purple-magenta-y colour. We then used some nail gems and a couple polishes, along with a dotting tool, to achieve this:



I got to see them again last night.. We did these on either Wednesday or Thursday (I for the life of my cannot remember.. The days all blend together lately..) and she hasn't lost a single gem!

I have also acquired two new polish brands (to me!).. Meet my two newest children:

We have Zoya Valarie and Sparitual Drop Dead Gorgeous. When I ordered these, I was obviously loving purple. I ordered them from a new (to me) company that was recommended by a friend. I actually ordered three polishes.. And yet there are only two pictured. I am still waiting for OPI Black Shatter to show up. This company has terrible costumer service.. I will never be doing business with them again.

Which brings me to a question for all of you: What (if any) websites do you order polish from?


I used to order from TD, but now shipping is $20 regardless. I am looking for a place that either ships to Canada or is located in Canada, is up to date with collections AND won't cost me a small fortune to ship polishes.

I also had Valarie on for a few days.. I forgot to photograph before work yesterday.. The application and colour is amazing! I cannot wait to add more Zoya to my collection! And I am currently awaiting the arrival of my CG Crackle polishes! Woo!

That is all for now!

I'm looking for the same thing. It's probably impossible :( If any company is located in Canada, we have to pay almost double the price for the polish. No win win situation

Ditto, looking for the same thing! I hate feeling ripped off.

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
