Iron Fist Zombie

The Iron Fist Zombie (flats!) are basically what finally inspired me to do this mani. I have to say, I love Iron Fist flats.. I think I own 3 pairs and I believe my sister has 4 or 5.. Anyways! At Christmastime, I got her the Zombie flats and now she wears them all the time.. (side note: she also has the wallet and it is amazing..) ANYWAYS! Many, many months ago, via tumblr, I came across THIS image, and of course I saved it to my inspiration folder. Fast forward to Saturday night and me scoping through my folder looking for the one major 'mani' I was going to do for the week (aka a couple of days as they will get wrecked once I am in the dishpit at work..)



I will apologize for my shiny nails. I was actually already in bed, following my night routine that I had mentioned in my last post.. So I had already slicked on some Nubar cuticle oil.. Then I remembered I would be at work in the morning.. And, as far as my experiences go, work is a 50/50 killing zone for nail art/polish. (side note: I would have been ok, I was spared working with the dishes.. Every bit of paint is still intact!)

I know there is some smearing of the black paint around the eyes, but, I really do like this. I think it is something fun and it threw a lot of people off.. My favourite part to paint were the teeth.. I have no idea as to why - they just were!!

For this, I used: OPI Green-Wich Village, CG White Out, CG Liquid Leather, OPI Shorts Story and of course my trusty brush, which is why the silly yellow nail art bottle is splayed out in front of the other guys.

Now for some just day in the life chit-chat. I decided last week that I was going to eliminate online shopping for awhile. I am not really trying to save money or anything, but I figure it would be smarter to start holding on to more money.. Cause you never know what large purchase items are going to turn up, or, if you get really sick and have to miss work, etc.. So, that plan died a horrible death on Friday night.. And has continued up to today. Ugh. Two of the places I have placed orders with can be blogged about, so that will be fun! One of them isn't going to be here til sometime mid-June, so that will be a long wait.. Another should hopefully be here this week - and it is 100% nail related! Yay! The other orders placed was for clothing.. Yeah.

Another thing I quickly wanted to mention.. The other day, the dad asked me if I still was filming YouTube video tutorials. I don't even remember the last time I filmed one. That is pretty bad. I think my problem is that I didn't have it set up to my main account - which is connected to my main e-mail, etc, and I always forget to check with that other account. I am not sure if any of you watched them (don't worry - you don't have to!) but I think I am going to start filming again and have them on my main account so I can keep updated on the comments and such. Way easier! I was hoping to film tomorrow during the day, but I have a hair appointment tomorrow (I was really good and actually waited for almost 2 months! My roots are killing me slowly on the inside.. I never wait that long!) - so I am not sure yet about tomorrow.. But! Expect a new video sometime by the end of the week. Anyways.. I should probably silence myself now.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is having an awesome start to the new week! Take care until next time!


  • Tierney - Totally strange, but I actually thought about you with the Mermaid's Tears polish - I am not sure why it reminded me of you, but it did! I actually think if you try it out, you'll love it! I was a tad skeptical myself, but tried it and loved it! I did put Silver Shatter over the others, just to see, and none of them blew me away like it did over Mermaid's Tear!! I am glad you got the same shades though - they are all gorgeous!!
  • Minty - Well, thank you for the tag!! I was reading through yours and was like 'hell yes, I completely agree with that! I am stealing it!!' 
  • shortwidenails - I am glad you like it (: I look forward to your email!!

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
