Goodies

I know.. This will be a post filled with goodies instead of nails - BUT - I will post up some nails tomorrow.. Today is about items I have bought and received in the last couple of weeks - yay!


So, a couple of weeks ago.. I came home to not one package - but two! Which is THE BEST! Since I already knew what was in the Sephora box, I of course had to open the package from Li Lian of shortwidenails. She had contacted me earlier about having some extra (duplicate) image plates and the first person she thought of was me - awe, yay! BUT she also tossed in some extra items and a sweet note!


She sent me the 3 plates: m56, m60 & m73. She also included a wealth of fimo canes and a set of amazing gold press-ons with rad musical note & stars glitter/confetti! Thank you Li Lian, you're a doll! I will be playing with these items soon!!

Then, of course, I opened up my sephora package.. some body wash, some face wash, some freebies, the naked palette.. THE NAKED PALETTE! Yes, I know I am a bit of a late comer on to the Naked palette train, but hey, better late than never! And my god.. LOVE me that palette!!

Actually, I am also really excited as there is a Sephora opening up here in the city next month! Eeeee! I cannot waaaaaait! We are going opening day. Seriously. I. Cannot. Wait! Oh, and this palette has a shadow called 'Creep', so of course I am in love with it!

Then, last weekend, while out and about, I picked up a few goodies..


I honestly did not know that Aldo sold polish! I snagged this glittery bad boy called 'Gold Digger'.. Then I am a sucker for the mini OPI Halloween sets.. Actually, pretty much anything to do with Halloween I need to own. I love the names they chose also.. The orange is 'He's My Boo', the white is 'Mummy Knows Best', the black 'I Only Date Werewolves' (my favourite name of the bunch.. queue Alcide flashbacks..) and the glow in the dark green 'Zom-Body To Love'.

In a way it was good my sister met up with us.. She talked me out of a bunch of other shades saying we had colours like them already.. But.. but.. Ugh. Next time!!



Then some swatch action for you all!

Well, hope everyone has an excellent Thursday night! I am going to go get some more school work in.. Bleh. This go to work and come home and do school stuff in a killer. No wonder my sucky immune system is failing already.

Bye for now!

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…
