Kelly Meets Latticed Lilac

And got totally destroyed by a mini-monster who has an affinity for shiny items.

Quite the intro, wouldn't you say so?

I know I would!

Now for some explanation.. It was 2am.. I had an appointment at the bank at 10am.. I needed to have SOMETHING on my nails.. And I needed some sleep in there somewhere. THEN I remembered my newly acquired bottle of CG Crackle Latticed Lilac. I also remembered testing it on the nail wheel over Zoya Kelly. PERFECT!

Not going to lie.. I love this combo.. So, before I could capture it in a photo AND do cleanup.. I visited with Bennie.. He is a degu and has shown up on here many times before.. Anyways.. Apparently degus like shiny things (or he does, at least).. My nails happened to be quite shimmery.. He tried to steal my nail.. It wasn't like the time he bit me out of anger, he didn't even do any damage to my nail.. Just the polish..


You can plainly see the damage that was done.. Rascal! Ohh well. It was only going to be a one day thing anyways as I had to do dishes the next day. Though I do think this will be the next combo for my toes - I love it!

Now, even though Bennie was a nail wrecker, I still allowed him some hangout time with Fonze. I, of course, nabbed a photo for all of you to enjoy..


That is about all for now.. OH! Except hello to my new followers (: 261?! WHAT?! AWESOME! I appreciate each and every one of you, always!

Hopefully I will have something rad on my nails mid-week to show. And I am hoping to film another tutorial soooon!

Have an awesome start to the week everyone - I know I am!!

OH! Also, I know I shouldn't ask.. BUT.. If you don't know anyone else entered in that Styled On contest (on facebook), or, you like my entry, please vote for me!! That would be great!! VOTE HERE

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:

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…
