Make Some Noise + Shine of the Times

Hello everyone!

So, the title isn't anything creative, it is spelling out exactly what you're going to get within this post. I'm sorry. It has been a rough week. Yesterday I wasn't feeling so death-like, I actually felt well enough after writing my exam that it was time to paint my nails. I knew exactly what colour I wanted to paint them in.. But I didn't have any idea what to do nail-art-wise. Once I checked in with my sister for ideas (she also didn't have any for this particular colour, but gave me a rad idea for next week - awe yeah!), I decided to just bust out some luxeffects and call it a day.



So, we have got China Glaze Make Some Noise which is a stunning blood-orangey colour (at least to me..) topped off with two coats of Essie luxeffects in Shine of the Times, which is basically like SH Hidden Treasure.. Still absolutely gorgeous!

I really like these two gems together.. I am actually happy about them because they make me feel less like death and make me feel almost warm. Kind of a nice feeling for right now.

I HAVE to be feeling better by Wednesday.. I have the City & Colour concert to go to, and I refuse to be hacking up a lung in the vicinity of Dallas Green as we plan to be as close to the stage as we can be. REFUSE!

I hope everyone had a great week and that you're all in better health situations than I. This "cold" is a dozy, thankfully my whole family has been down and out with it.. I think I sort of made mine turn in to laryngitis, just a real great treat! Bleh. See you all again soon!!

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…
