Hearts

So, I stumbled upon a new (to me!) blog the other day.. And fell in love with pretty much all over her designs. Many photos have been stuffed in to my inspirational folder..

It is http://rebeccalikesnails.blogspot.com/ and she is amazing. I kind of feel weird talking about someone like this whom I have never met/spoken with/anything.. But still! I need to put down her blog url for some more recognition.. And maybe some of you haven't come across her as well. AND if you have and never mentioned her to me.. Well, you're mean (:

Anyways!

I came across this adorable heart design she did. Of course I had to give it a whirl. Now, I have to apologize in advance. I have been slathering my hands in lotion every few hours, applying cuticle creams, etc, and I still picked at my skin really badly the other day. So.. Uh, they look gross. Sorry x 10!!


I used: OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Shorts Story, CG Lemon Fizz, CG Peachy Keen, CG Electric Pineapple & CC Take Me To Your Chateau. I also used a dotting tool which I received from Born Pretty

I also forgot to post up these shots the other day.. Two of my favourite friends gifted me with some nail polish for my birthday.. And I love them dearly for that!!



The Fun Dip polish actually does smell awesome.. Well, at least the yellow gem does. I have this weird obsession/affinity for yellow polish.. Yet I don't really own too many yellows.. ANYways.. Then we have Finger Paints polishes in Art Dearler Teal-er & Model Colour. Both are awesome!!

Whelp, that is all for now kiddos.. I am off to Edmonton in the a.m and I am extremely excited about it! It gives me a break from S'toon.. And just everyday stresses.. Which is really, really nice!

I have a large lump sum of cash to spend. I plan on a new summer-ish wardrobe (I am looking at you F21), some new makeup (*cough*illamasqua polishes*cough*) and I really new a new purse. I need all of these things.. Plus maybe a bit more!? Who knows!!

Take care til next week everyone!!

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…
