Oranganade Franken

So, I took advantage of a contest to create a franken polish! Yay!

I told myself as soon as she posts up the photos for the contest, I will post up my entry on my blog and what I did with it.. Without further ado.. I present..

Oranganade...


It photographed somewhat 'blah', but there was actually quite a bit of shimmer to this gem..



Here is how it all started.. I used 1/2 bottle of Ulta Sun-Sational, 3/4 mini bottle of some random red OPI mini, 1/6 bottle of Color Club Turn The Other Chic, couple drops of China Glaze White Cap and ditto for China Glaze White Out...

The bottle shot sort of shows more of the sparkly goodness.. But, you all know I cannot just wear a polish..


I had to jazz it up some.. I give you.. SPARKLING Oranganade.. Yeah.. I actually think I would have gotten the results out of the franken that I wanted if I would have put Hidden Treasure in to the mix. Ahh well, live and learn!!

To make it 'Sparkling Oranganade', I used: Oranganade Franken, SH Hidden Treasure & CG White Out, as well as a dotting tool (which was provided to me by Born Pretty) and my newly acquired fimo canes (the lemons, to be exact).

I figured it would be a cartoony effect of soda pop.. With some lemons tossed in.. Yay? Nay?

Remember to head over to More Nail Polish and vote! Even if it isn't for me - there are some really amazing entries that you should all scope out!!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I better scuttle off to bed before work.. Bleh! Goodnight!!

AH! I'm obsessed with this manicure! Not only is the franken gorgeous, but the nail art you did to go with it makes it even better!

Really pretty shade of orange! I just did an orange franken too today (inspired by the contest you took part in), with some holo.

I was much lazier than you and just added one color + holo. Yours looks so much more fresh I like it! Mine is more like a-late-summer-orange whereas yours bring the lemon slices alive :D

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:

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…
