The Nail Polish Tag

The rules are to answer the 10 questions, pass this tag onto 5 bloggers, and to make sure the bloggers you tagged know about this!

1. How many polishes do you have?
I would say under 200. I am currently working on a spreadsheet, so hopefully I will be able to give a legit answer soon!! EDIT: Hah.. ugh. 248 + 33 that I took out because I don't ever use them.. plus many, many minis. A lot more than I thought I had. Whelp, time to add more!

2. What is your favourite brand of polish?
I am going to have to say China Glaze.. But I do hold Orly in high regards as well.

3. Do you like crackle nail polish or do you hate it?
I quite enjoy them.. I just don't use them too often. Only when I'm in a rush and need something to toss on to my nails to make them seem fun!!

4. What is your first nail polish brand?
It was probably Maybelline.. Or Cover Girl Crackle polish way back when. I saved some of my babysitting money to purchase it.

5. If you were to have your own nail polish line, what would you call it?
I would call it G&G.. It reminds me of the days playing Railroad Tycoon with my dad (aka me teaching him how to play!) and we always named our company G&G (Gloeden & Gloeden, our last name).. I feel it has rad name. I guess that is what my company would be. A line though? Something nerdy and referencing movies or books. I would probably name the colours after my favourite movie murderers.. awkward?

6. What nail polish colour does not compliment you?
Actually, my Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air does not suit me at all! It makes my pale skin look too zombie-esque when worn alone. I layered it over What's With the Catitude? and it looks better..

7. What nail polish colours do compliment you?
I don't really hate any colours on me.. But that doesn't mean they compliment me.. BUT, I figure I'm a "winter" colour wise, so, any rich tones.

8. Name two of your best nail art friends.
I would say my sister for irl nail art friends.. Though I do have friends that are getting more in to painting their nails and such - it seriously makes my heart smile! And online? I'd say Li Lian of shortwidenails - she is such a sweetheart! We have had some good correspondence over the years..

9. What was the best nail polish gift you've ever received?
I'd say when I won the Polish or Perish anniversary giveaway. I don't really enter too many giveaways, but I did enter that one and won.. I got so many nail polishes - and brands that I would otherwise never get my mitts on!

10. Make a speech about thanking the blogger who tagged you.
Alex won one of my Revlon nail polish giveaways.. It finally arrived to her! She is a sweetheart and I was happy to be in contact while we anxiously awaited those gems to get to her! Not only did I get to know her a bit, but I found a new blog to follow - always a bonus!!

Now for the five blogs.. well, you all should know by now how I am with these bad boys. If you're reading this and haven't been tagged YET, well, then, TAG! Do this (:

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…
