My Cuticles Are Terrifying

I am currently sporting OPI Alpine Snow with some OPI Black Shatter over top.. Which makes up my favourite combo (black and white!!) - BUT - I was just looking at the photos I took.. And.. My cuticles are extremely scary.

I mentioned I have been really sick.. When I get sick (I assume this happens with a lot of people), my skin gets really dry.. Despite my best efforts (high H2O intake, lotions, etc) my skin is extremely dry. Especially my cuticles and surrounding nail area. I should just leave that alone.. Right? Wrong. I am a picker. I usually pick and peel my skin until I bleed. I don't even notice sometimes until I use the washroom or something and have to wash my hands.. Then, voila! Blood. Bad Dee!!

I will give you a photo of something I wore last week. My mother and I were meeting up with a friend of hers (and her friend's daughter) to see a movie. I really do not like going out and not having my nails painted.. So I quickly applied this to my nails. I know I have an image with this look somewhere in my inspiration folder. Anyways..


I useddddd OPI A Grape Fit and CG Liquid Leather. And see? My cuticles and that weren't too bad.. You know what.. Because I like to run this here blog on honesty.. And want all of you to see when I make mistakes as well.. I will show you how scary my nails are. Both. Hands.

Remember, you were warned.

You can still close the page..

No? Well, ok.. Here are my scary hands as of right now.. (I seriously snapped the photos 10mins ago..)







Yikes! I really do apologize.. And I hope I don't lose a ton of followers for posting these ugly photos! Le sigh.

In other news.. I returned home today.. And there is a little package waiting for moi. I believe it is nail gems.. So I will play with those some time.. AND! My best friend has given me 3 awesome nail art ideas lately. She BBMs me them.. And I quite like them! I am hoping that by next week I will actually have the energy to start doing some fun designs again. Seriously, this cold will be the death of me.

I should probably sneak off to bed asap here. I have work.. I have no idea how I am going to pull that off.. A bit of shopping AND a movie to attend tomorrow. I am going to med up and pass out! Have a fantastic night everyone - and a terrific weekend (:



  • shortwidenails - They actually look like they took a lot of time and patience, when really, they didn't! I had all the colours on a piece of paper and just went around, dabbed some polish on to my sponge and immediately on to my nails. If I thought a colour was too heavy or there wasn't enough of another, I just got more of the polish and dabbed it on! I think I am going to do these again some time soon - maybe with some different colours (:
  • Halifax - I know hey? Maybe one day we'll get some equality with the polish companies OR some amazing online shop will open that is Canadian and won't charge double for the polish alone. Ahh dreams - so nice, aren't they?
  • Chantal - It is one of the worst feelings.. I agree with you there!!

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
