31 Day Challenge: Day 22 Inspired by a song

I would have probably had some more trouble doing this one.. But then about a week and a half ago, my brother told me that Troy from Community (played by the excellent Donald Glover) had a rap album about to be released and that is has been doing it for awhile, etc..

Of course I had to scope some of the songs. There are 2 that I absolutely love.. And the rest are also pretty great. He is nerdish (seriously, some of the lyrics are just.. nerdishly awesome!) and explicit and just excellent.

Anyways. I decided to use the song 'Heartbeat' as my song choice because it fits this heart monitor mani I have seen before that I really wanted to do on myself.. Did and done!



I used Orly Liquid Vinyl and Essie Silken Cord. I decided to skip the lines on my thumb as I tried to see how I could align my thumb with the rest of my fingers for photos and yeah, wasn't happening.. So sad little hearts is what you get via the thumb!

I have been trying to take some photos without the thumb involved.. But it feels weird to me. I think I will always have to be a thumb-in-photo-includer. Yah.


This is my inspiration song.. Again, I am warning you, it does contain some explicit lyrics.. But really, are there any better type of lyrics? (I mean, explicit lyrics are great as I feel that sentence does not make any sense..)

AND I love his whole album and now I am slowly collecting some of his "older" tunes as well. Love. Him.

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…
