Electric Pineapple Attempts Camo

And sort of fails. Although, I don't hate this.. It just isn't quite how I wanted it to turn out.

First, I shall start off with a photo of Electric Pineapple on its own..


I feel it is the younger and more diluted brother of Who The Shrek Are You.. And I kind of like that! I feel this is going to be constantly on my toes during summer.. And I haven't been a toe painter in a long time, so that is saying A LOT!

Now, a bit of an intro to what I did to my nails after.. I was perusing nail art images, specifically for camo print nails.. And came across the forums at makeupgeek.com, specifically the thread of nail art.. The nail art photos are amazing, but one continuous poster caught my eye and it just so happens that she has a blog!! I am a little upset that I never came across her before, but I have to say.. I am in love with her work!! I feel that I will be using a lot of her images for upcoming looks!!

Her name is Kayla and she runs this BLOG and she is fantastic at nail art.. Check it out!!


Her nails are obviously better than mine, but I tried. It didn't really turn out camo-esque, but, I don't hate them. She also used yellow as her base, but I really wanted to use Electric Pineapple. Badly.

I ended up using: CG Electric Pineapple & OPIs: No Room For The Blues, Elephantastic Pink and A Grape Fit!

I also used a dotting tool, which was provided to me by Born Pretty 

There is nothing currently wrong with these nails, but I think my nail painting habit has mutated. I fight myself to not paint my nails something different everyday! It.. Is actually beginning to feel like a sickness. I may or may not be worried.


  • shortwidenails - They are rather amazing.. Now I kind of want to sport them! My mom just has to put up with it. She asks me to paint her nails, and it seems to me, the crazier, the better! She was pumped when I just put dots on her nails and then ecstatic when I added some cheetah/leopard-esque action. Have you ever asked your mom? Maybe she would surprise you!! And funny you should ask about my brother's nails. I don't think he would ever allow me to do some nail art test runs, but he does have to help me make some polish colour decisions every now and again. I ask for his input (:
  • Jeanelle - Yay! Glad you like them! And, they are very lucky, heh! My sister actually does her own nails 99.987% of the time, that evening I just felt like doing other peoples' nails. I told her she should let me start taking photos of the designs she does.. One of these days maybe..
  • Niki* - You so should!! You would do an awesome job of them!! And I shall go check that out once I hit 'publish post'.

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…
