New Kids + Nail Fail

I wanted to make a quick post to show my new children off.. I picked up 6 babies the other day.. Kind of excited to introduce them! Plus, yesterday was the worst day I have had in nail painting in a long, long time. Nothing worked for me. Today was better, but these will be posted up closer to Valentine's Day.. Anyways, moving on!


Yay! New kids!! Here we have OPI: I Don't Give A Rotterdam, I Have A Herring Problem, Kiss Me On My Tulips (side note: I have to stifle hysterical laughter every time I see this name.. I seriously have the maturity level of a 15 year old boy. I love it!), and A Roll In The Hague. Then we have China Glaze: Gaga For Green and Techo.

I knew I wanted to do something with IDGAR and IHAHP immediately.. Mostly to prove my dad wrong.. He said they are the same colour. They are not. But.. My idea failed.. I think the next time I want to use striping tape, I will size them before hand so they fit perfectly.. Even with tiny sewing scissors.. I couldn't snip them enough.. And then of course there is just me.. Tape, fimo canes, rhinestones.. I have to pick at them! Ugh.


I like everything about this.. Minus the fact I couldn't leave the tape alone or quite get it to be perfect enough. And my gouged thumb nail, otherwise, I loved this. Will revisit some time.


Then there is this.. I love this! Minus the tip wear and the fact that the photo is blurry.. BUT.. I was getting ready to go hang out with my bff last night, and the index nail on my non-photographing hand was ruined! The polish came clean off. I was pretty pissed off.

Oh well, such is life.

I am not even sure why I am posting these fails up.. I think it is to show that not everything works out as perfectly that it sometimes looks in the photos.. There are mishaps along the way.

I will be back with some V-Day-esque nails in the next day or three. Take care til then!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought that about Tulips lol. I love both these manis! The only time I tried to use striping tape, I couldn't get it perfect either and wound up picking it off. And that's sooo annoying when polish just pops off your finger!

It's nice to see not so perfect manicures to be honest - so that I know that it's not just me who have days where stuff like that keeps happening. So thanks. :)

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…
