The Need For Orange Nails

Hello everyone!!

So, yesterday was a crazy and sad day. Most of it is work related, and I don't really want to delve in to it, but, I will just say, yesterday (during the day) sucked! My evening was a lot better.. I got to spend it with one of my favourite persons.. And we did a lot of talking before our movie watching.. Somewhere in our babbling, I excitedly said 'I have 200 followers on my blog!!' and she had said she noticed the other day I was at 196.. And that I should have a giveaway. I completely agree. We are going to be hanging out again tomorrow and we might do some shopping - either that or next weekend, SO! Watch out for upcoming Giveaway announcements!

Now on to this 200 followers biz.. WHAT?! How!? Seriously?? I remember when I first started this blog and I got to 1 follower. I thought I had really made it. AND it wasn't someone I knew.. I actually didn't start telling people about my blog for the longest time.. I am still not sure why - maybe I thought people would think I am even more weird? Who knows! Anyways, what I want to say is: thank you. Thank you to each and every one of you that has clicked 'follow'.. It means a lot to me! I honestly wish I could send everyone items to show how much I appreciate each and every one of you.. But until I start buying lottery tickets and successfully win the lottery, you'll just have to accept my sincere words of gratitude!

Geez, onwards to the good stuff already!!


Last weekend, I was at Shopper's Drug Mart with my siblings.. And saw that they had Essie Mink Muffs and Chinchilly.. Two of my lemmings.. Seeings how I only seem to find Essie polish there, I should have just bought them.. BUT Shopper's retails Essie polish at $12. A tad steep. Fast forward to Tuesday.. I am heading home from my hair appointment (buh-bye gross roots!) and stopped in at the mall.. I was looking for root volumizing powder.. Couldn't find it at Zellers, so I hotfooted it over to Shopper's.. I did get what I wanted.. But I also bought these two as they were on sale for $9! I can handle that..



I am most excited about Chinchilly - so I swatched it on last night with the plans that I would do some nail art today.. I was pumped.. Got this photo.. Went to my bed.. And tossed and turned for hours. Finally at 4am I got out of bed. I knew what the problem was. With my horrible day mixed with some massive headache, I had stopped listening to my thoughts. I wanted orange nails. I could not sleep without having orange on my nails. Has that ever happened to anyone? Not necessarily about a nail colour, but just that you need to have something so badly that you cannot sleep.. Be it a conversation, listening to a certain song, maybe having some type of snack.. Maybe I am just really strange.



I removed Chinchilly (which I loved) and slapped on Orly Sol Cabana. I am still shocked that I only have a small bottle of this polish. I love this orange. Once it was applied, however, it just wasn't enough.. Something was missing. I grabbed CG White Cap and slapped a coat on. I am pretty sure I sighed with content and then shut off my lights and went to bed. I know, I didn't do a clean up, but I was so excited to photograph these when I got up that.. Well, this is what you get!

Also, when I was outside taking this photo.. Yes, I went outside to take it - not sure if it looks better (also I was trying for a super shot!) - but I liked how the sunlight makes them sparkle! Anyways, about being outside to take this photo.. While out there, I discovered two goons...



2 of our 4 female rabbits remain. I believe these clowns are 6 (maybe even 7?) years old.. Top photo is Cow (aptly named huh..) and bottom is Lakai. Maybe when the lone male rabbit is outside tomorrow, I will snag a photo of him. (side note: as I type this, Bennie is frantically jostling his water bottle.. I think he might be jealous).

Anyways, that is all I have for you today! I am sorry I lied about having a video up by the end of the week.. I couldn't think of anything creative to do (even my inspiration folder failed me!) - I figured I would ask if there is any look I have posted that you would want to see a video of? Let me know and I'll happily do it!

I am going to go out and transplant the pumpkin plants soon.. Wish me luck!! Oh, speaking of plants.. The SpaRitual seed card that I planted has yielded one sprout thus far..






Have a great day everyone!!

shoppers..barlgh....such a rip off..wellmost of the time..cept shampoo sales =)

I really need to get my hands on colors like mink muffs and chinchilly..i really own no brown greys...very odd.

so what do you think of white cap?

and I am like u..cept I dont even get into my bed until i have it done...worst part is when it's because my room is a mess and I can't sleep..then I spend an hour or 2 cleaning..all happy....but sweaty then need to take shower etc etc and that totally cuts down my sleep time =(

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
