Haute Nails

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by an awesome lady named Jessica Taylor, and she asked me if I would be interested in doing a review of her product - nail polish strips! I then went on to check out her website and ask her which design she really liked - I knew instantly which strips I wanted, but I went for her suggestion anyways.. She mentioned the Maggie which was a really great suggestion as they were the strips I was most eying up! If there is one design I always fail miserably at replicating, it is houndstooth. Done!

They arrived in the mail a few days ago - and I mean, come on, nail mail, of course I was excited!!






The kit includes 20 nail strips in varying sizes, an orange stick/wooden stick, and a nail file. All for $10 - kind of an amazing deal in my opinion!!



Now, of course I was too excited to put these bad boys on that I wasn't really thinking.. I had dishes and that to do.. And you all know my stance on wearing gloves.. Big mistake!! My other mistake was not taking photos right after my application. I did some patch work on my thumb nails as I ripped some off, and I lost a chunk from my ring finger.. BUT.. I must say I am really surprised how well they held up.. And this is without top coat no less.

I do apologize about my extremely dry hands in the photos. My hands hate me this winter.

While my after work photos may not do these strips justice, I have to say - they are beautiful! I think polish strips are great things to have.. I often get asked when I go out if my nails are done using strips, of course I get the open-mouthed shocked look when I say they aren't, but, most of the ladies complementing my nails are wearing the strips - so they are a very popular trend.. I think Haute Nails has a great selection AND I like the fact that quite a few of them are glittery! Who doesn't love that??

And honestly, $10 a pop? Yeah, I will be ordering more! Jessica started her business at home, and is starting to branch out and has been selling to companies AND she is great to talk to. My suggestion? Go look at the strip selection and snag some for yourself!!

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:

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…
