Lake Placid on Acid + Goodies

I just got home approximately 40 minutes ago and figured I should make a quick post!

I recently ordered some polish from Lacquistry and I have one of them to show you right meow!

I ordered Lake Placid on Acid, partly because it is amazing and partly because the name of it is excellent! My pictures do it no justice and my nails look turrible (yes, I do mean turrible), but I am going to post them up anyways.



I received a plethora of complements on this gem while we were milling around Edmonton. I am also a huge fan of it. I put Revlon Royal underneath, but I think I could have gotten away with just the polish alone. I will test that out next time!

Now for some goodies I picked up while in Edmonton. Nail polish is definitely what I bought the most of..


I nabbed the other half of the Back To Boho collection from Color Club (it includes: Boho Mojo, Nouveau Vintage, Voodoo You Do, Artsy Crafty, Blue-Topia, and Rebel Spirit), I grabbed two Deborah Lippmann polish: Lady Sings The Blues & Happy Birthday, two China Glaze polish: Make Some Noise & Sweet Hook AND I figured I would try that Out The Door topcoat.. I still love Seche, but I just wanted to check out this bad boy.

I also did buy 2 items from Sephora.. I can post up more about them if anyone wants, but I bought a YSL lipstick (kind of a monster splurge!), I bought it in Rose Opera (#29) - seriously the silkiest lipstick ever! I also bought the Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Palette. I am a NARS blush snob now, BUT, this palette looked stunning. Plus Vampy Varnish made a post about it a few days ago.. And I wanted to check it out, then once I saw it and swatched it on myself, well, it was a done deal!

Anyways.. I am now possibly dying (a nice cold to end the weekend.. great!) and I have meetings to attend tomorrow and I still have to paint my nails. Some of the shades in this Back to Boho set are screaming 'snakeskin' to me.. I think I will give in!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and will have an awesome start to the week!!

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! Thi

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 a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
