Adopt A Polish

Hey everyone - I know, a break from the 31 Day Challenge - so you KNOW this is important stuff!!

I was sent some information about a website the other day - and I just couldn't view everything via my blackberry.. Now that I'm home with my desktop computer and able to view everything, I knew this was something I would have to share with you all immediately!

The information I was sent is about a website called 'Adopt A Polish' and I was wondering what the what that was all about.. Then reading the concept behind the site.. I died.. It is amazing!!

"Every day, thousands of nail polishes are abandoned or abused. They are not sickly or old, they are fine new polishes, stuck on a shelf because they are forgotten or out of season. All they desire is to be used, and maybe taken for a night on the town in return."

Seriously? This is the first paragraph within the press release - I knew I was sold on the idea!
I love the idea of nail polish needing to be adopted.. I think it is a cute idea (NOW, do not get me wrong.. I don't think animals or children being neglected/abused is a 'cute' idea, but nail polish = cute) and one that I needed to share with all of you!

"One current nail polish, Charleston, held back tears while describing his life, 'I spent two years of my life stacked in a dark room crammed together with thousands of others just like me, hundreds pressing down on my shoulders at any given time. I'm a shimmer, and I have never seen the sunlight in my life. Oh and don't be started on CND Shellac, I just can't keep going as long, why would any women want me?'"

"Please don't let the agony go on any longer than it has to. The first round of adoptions closes December 31st. Apply to Adopt a Polish at http://www.adoptapolish.org/category/current-adoptions"

Basically.. What are you waiting for? Come up with a great application of why you'd make the perfect parent to a forgotten about polish.. Maybe you'll use that colour to adorn your nails and then go out for a picnic.. Or use it to go out with your blind date set-up.. OR.. Well, you get the idea! This is open to Canada and the US.

OH! This also introduced me to the website www.nailpolishcanada.com (they are sponsoring Adopt A Polish) - I went perusing the site.. UHM! Deborah Lippmann polish is on there. The only place I have ever found them was in West Edmonton Mall. I am kind of dying. They also have 'Bad Romance' still up for sale. This is going to be a very Merry Christmas for me!!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
