Quick Update-Esque Post

Hello everyone!!

I feel like I haven't updated in forever.. Which is mostly true.

I think my lack of posts is due to the fact that I just haven't really been doing anything with my nails. I know, extremely boring!!

If I do wear polish, it has to be something glittery as the glitter adds some depth to my nails, blahblahblah, I'm trying to find excuses for my laziness.

I mean, it was my favourite friends birthday on Saturday.. And I ran out of time during the day between work, picking out new glasses and showering that it came down to either taking a nap or painting my nails. Nap won. I went to an event with naked nails. I actually feel really sad writing that. Ugh. NEVER AGAIN!




These are the photos I currently have to post up. Boring, right? I am currently sporting Across The Universe.. And we're not the best of friends. There is extreme shrinkage AND tip wear all in less than 24 hours. Mer! I also think next time I use it, I will base with another polish. Live and learn.

Earth Matters. Green. Glitter. Love!

Ahh that reminds me!! I will have to snap a photo for the next post.. The seed card I planted.. Totally has a tiny, tiny little sprout! I ran around the house like a crazy person showing off that sweet, sweet baby to anyone that came in to my field of view. I'm so proud!

I think with my work schedule the way it is.. I will be painting my nails way less.. But I am going to have to designate days. I think I will have to do something Saturdays, as I work more outside of the kitchen on Sunday.. And then something again either Sunday evening or Monday during the day. Otherwise I will never paint them.. Which would break my heart.

Ok, enough sad update-ish post!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! This "week" is always crazy for me.. It is a week of birthdays.. My FF on April 30th, the ma on May 2nd and the sis on May 4th aka today - Happy Birthday Lee-Lee!!

OH! Something else I wanted to mention.. I went for my first ever pedicure with my FF earlier in the evening. It was an excellent experience.. One I plan to actually keep up - especially for the summer! I am sporting CG Ruby Pumps, which, oddly enough, is a polish I do not own.

Alright, now I'm done!



  • Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes - I actually loved applying that polish.. I can see why it is one of your favourites!! I also cannot wait to see what that GOSH polish has to offer me.. Soon!!
  • JQ - I own 3 SpaRituals, but so far this is the first I have used and I have to say: love! I think you will really enjoy the brand once you get your hands on some!!
  • Minty - Thank youuu!! And thanks for the award! I will think of some facts and post something up soon! I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!! Thank you!!
  • Swaffie - I am quite pleased with what I have purchased in the past couple of weeks as well! And thank you, thank you! I will get to work on that award asap as well!! Muchly appreciated!!
  • shortwidenails - And swatches you shall get! Next post, I promise (err, don't totally hold me to that!) - But, what I can tell you from using both a few times: I am in love and I am extremely happy that I ended up purchasing both. In the long run, the Natural is more what I sway towards, but have been using the Naked palette WAY more!!

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
