Halloween Round-Up of 2011

This post is just going to be a smorg of nails photos and Halloween yard decor..

The love Halloween. In fact, it is my favourite day of the whole entire year. I think it is more so that I love the fact that all things "scary" are celebrated. LOVE. It! I usually do not actually go out and celebrate bar style; my thing is decorating.. We didn't get everything working this year, but I plan to start working on decorations as soon as the weather is nice (aka July) and make sure I get everything that I want to work, well, to work!

I will toss up the nails pics first.. These are from the last few weeks. I apologize for my awful photos and sometimes my nails are badly chipped - I will get better soon - I promise!







Now the decorations..










Also - I had to select two new winners for my giveaway.. I received e-mails back within 12 hours.. Needless to say, I was ecstatic!

The winners are: Alex & Anh. I am shipping those packages out tomorrow!! Then I cannot wait to receive word that their goodies arrived safely.

And that is it.. for now. I really want to start that 31 day challenge. I would like to start tomorrow.. but we shall see! My weeks have been filled with a wealth of activities, work and school. I still need to find some time for more exams. Bleh. BUT, do look forward to that 31 day challenge.. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

I hope everyone had an amazing October and a fantastic Halloween.. Bring on the other 364 days, I'm content now (:

@lucyclark - Thankies love!

@beauxs mom - YES! Yayyy! I am glad someone (other than my family) knows who IT is. He scares me.. I wanted a different image of him for the pumpkin, but I had to go with what was available. I might have to sketch out my own next year (: He is terrifying though..

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…
