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!!

Hey Delaynee, they sell Lippmann polishes in Regina at the Coco Nail Lounge and I think they're $18 or $19 a bottle. :) www.coconaillounge.com/

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…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

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).
