I'm A Bad Blogger + Guest Nails

My last post was 12 days ago!? What the freak have I been doing!?

Oh, right. Not my nails (too often).. I have been working mostly in the dish pit and have no reason to do my nails. Plus, when I do paint them, I haven't really been doing anything fun. I slap a crackle or shatter top coat on and go.. So, for that, I do apologize!

I do have a wealth of photos to share though.. Let's get started!



First, my nails. I have always enjoyed the look of what Nailside was doing, but was too scared to test it out as I wasn't sure if myself and tape would get along. I followed the Mummy Mani  tutorial.. And, I liked the results! I went a little crazy with tape placement and sizes, but I really do like the outcome and will definitely try it again (and again, and again, etc).

I used OPI A Grape Fit as my base followed by CG Avalanche.

Then, last night, I went to my bestie's baseball games right after work. It was excellent! I had wanted to go watch some games this morning before working the evening shift, but I slept in.. Whoops! I hope her team is doing well!! THEN after the games, we returned back to the city and went straight over to the Exhibition!! I have not gone in 11 years, so that was quite fun!

We did some rides, played some games, etc.. My sister and some of her friends were also going, so we met up with them! One thing I really like about my friends and her friends, we all get along really well, we're like a large set of blended sisters (or family members).. It always makes for a great time! Oh, and, we all won domo dolls, nbD or anything..


Now go back a day.. It was 'Jersday', and my good friend had asked me to do a French Manicure for her as she had a wedding coming up the next day? Or maybe it is today? I cannot remember! But, she came over, I did my first official French Manicure and we watched Jersey Shore. I forgot to snap a photo of her nails! THEN, another good friend popped in.. She has been working on growing her nails up a bit, and they finally had reached a point that she found suitable for me to paint them up! She had mentioned before that she really liked how I did my ma's nails at one point in time, so I decided to do that very same design for her!



For that design I used CC High Society on four of the fingers and for the dots on the ring finger; OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue was used on the ring finger and for the dots on the other four fingers; followed that up with some WnW Black Creme for the leopard/cheetah spots.

I have also been thinking lately that I should somehow start incorporating more about make-up items in to my blog so then I don't go 12 days without posting anything.. So, I give you a photo of some new items I am putting to the test.. Then, probably within a month, I will show photos from purchase date to that point in time and see if there are any changes.. Hopefully that will be all right with everyone! Oh, and I will toss in a photo of Bennie cuteness and call this blog post a wrap!


Have a great weekend everyone!!






  • Audrey L - Most people never know what I am talking about.. Then they see a photo of him and are like 'oh, so, a rat?!' - haha, they can think what they like! Those two are adorable together though! And thank you, I love that combo SO much, I am currently sporting it on my toes!!

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
