I was tagged with the Kreativ Blogger award awhile back by the super amazing Minty over at Haute Lacquer.. I am finally going to accept the award and get some facts up here for all of you to peruse. (I really like reading people’s responses.. I think they are always great!) – be sure to check out her blog if you haven’t already! She posts up swatches and nail art!

Write 10 facts about yourself.
Pass the award to 10 bloggers and tell them about the award.

Ooh boy, 10 facts.. I will try to make these “facts” that I haven’t mentioned yet.

1. I have lost a lot of weight within the last year, in fact, it hasn’t even been a year and I am still in shock and awe when I step on to a scale. The number keeps getting smaller and that makes me feel.. Good? BUT! I am having some serious body dysmorphic issues. I am constantly asking for reassurance, and it isn’t that I fishing for compliments, but I still feel like I look the same.. There is the odd time that I will catch myself in a mirror in a store or my reflection in glass and I have to stop and stare. That sounds so egotistical, but I cannot believe it is really me. Hopefully I can get to a point where I know exactly how I look.. (does that sound crazy.. hmmm)

2. I have this “social anxiety” type thing.. I can be in crowded places, but I need to have someone I know really well around me at all times. If I am left alone in said crowded places, even if it is friends of my friend, I get uncomfortable until I get extremely upset and have to leave. I hate it. I cannot rid myself of it.

3. I am very protective of the people I choose to have in my life. My family and friends mean the world to me. It is gross how much I care about all of them!! 

4. I really like gaming. Almost as much as I like nail polish.. Which is a WHOLE lot.

5. One of my sister’s best friend (and someone that I have come to also call ‘friend’) and I are obsessed with Sephora. On the Edmonton trip we all went on, her and I had to have our photo taken outside of the store, we sandwiched the Sephora logo with our shopping bags in hand. We know we are getting one here now. We plan to be at the grand opening.  

6. I really like music. But I am sort of weird about it. I have tons of songs/albums/etc, but I make playlists every few weeks and specifically only listen to the songs on said list. Once I seem to be skipping more tracks than I listen to, I make a new list. I have songs I have purchased on iTunes from listening to a preview and still have not listened to the full song. I know, weird!

7. Minty wrote this as her fact 7, and I completely agree with it, so I am also going to use it. “I am ALL FOR gay rights. 100%, no question about it. I may not be bisexual or a lesbian but I truly believe in gay rights.” – I feel that in these times, it shouldn’t matter who you love and whom you want to marry. It cannot make “statistics” any worse.

8. This is probably going to sound really horrible, but I swear I have a limit of time spent listening in a day.. I sometimes literally tune out of conversations. I honestly do not mean to, but it happens. I also notice my listening skills deteriorate when certain people will not stop talking.. That might not be a coincidence.. Probably mostly work related.

9. I follow a fairly particular night routine. If I miss a step and I’m already nested in my bed, reading, I will actually make myself get up and do said missed step. The only times this routine can be void is when I am not at my own place. That makes it sound so strange. It is really just showering/washing up, applying lotions, brushing the chops, etc, but I do things in a specific way.

10. I read more teen ‘novels’ as an adult than I ever did as a teen. When I was 12, the dad had me reading university literature... Now that I’m older, I get to read the easy and fun books! Yes!



I was also given the Liebster award by Swaafie – Thanks a bunch!! She is amazing and has some incredibly unique nail art! Make sure you scope out her blog!!

Thank you both very, very much!!

You all know how terrible I am with tagging others. If anyone wants to have the Kreativ blogger award and post up 10 facts about themselves – then – I tag YOU! I want to read your facts!!

I will be back next time with some sort of nail art or something.. See you then!!

It's not really funny... but I'm the exact way when it comes to you're number 2! One time in a crowded mall in a big strange town I was with my sister and her boyfriend at the time (now husband) and they disappeared on me! I was freaking out and couldn't find them and my cell phone wouldn't work and I starting crying and hyperventilating. The sad part is that I was 21 at the time.... I can't help it! It makes me nervous and how do I know they hadn't been kidnapped or ran off getting into trouble?! At least I can kind of laugh at myself about it now.... Lol

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…
