Happy Birthday To Me!!

Of course I just have enough time before my DAY ends to get this all posted up.. I meant to do it earlier in the day.. But.. You know how fun, busy days can be!

I knew for my actual birthday nails, I wanted cupcake nails.. And I randomly stumbled across this tutorial, so I went with that - and I love it!



For these bad boys, I used: Daisy Nail Lacquer Pink Sachet, Orly White Out, Joe Butter, Essie Silken Cord, China Glaze Make Some Noise, China Glaze Entourage, and OPI No Room For The Blues.

I got to spend my day with my siblings.. And it was so much fun! The weather was fairly nice - but extremely windy.. So we took advantage of that! We went mini golfing.. then to Ruckers.. And it was just really great! Then it was home time to enjoy family supper, amazing cake, and a few episodes of 'Sons of Anarchy'.

Now I am going to show you some of the gifts I received.. From my family, of course.. I love that they all seem to know exactly what to get for me!




My siblings (ok, my brother with help from my sister) got my the amazing neon yellow flats that I have been ogling from Aldo - I thought the extreme neon colour would make me look even more pale than I already am.. Totally doesn't! I love them!

Then my sister knew I loved and badly wanted this Christian Dior perfume. I actually really wanted Hypnotic Poison, but in the store she wasn't entirely sure, so she grabbed this one instead. Not going to lie: I love it! It stayed with me all throughout our adventurous day - she actually did a good thing in buying the "wrong" perfume.. Though I wouldn't say it is wrong anyways. She also bought me this set of bangles because she knows I love them for one, and two, they sort of have a reptile/snake-like air to them - love! AND a bottle of nail polish. We were in Chatters a couple weeks ago, and I had never seen this colour (OPI Metallic 4 Life) swatched.. I wanted it, but had already paid for my other purchases.. Plus I have so many bottles of polish anyways.. Well, she remembered that I liked it. Such a smart girl!

Then my ma bought me my first "real" piece of luggage. My sister and I went on a mini-trip a few months ago for work, and we took the bus to get to this other city. EVERY person on that bus had rolling luggage, except for us - we had the classic duffel bags. We plan on doing some further distance traveling in the next year and a half.. This will definitely help with that. Plus it is a lovely eggplant purple colour - I love it! Ooh, and the lining has a maple leaf pattern.. And there is a maple leaf embossed on the side as well. So good!

Hah! Posting before midnight my time.. This still counts as my birthday post.. I hope everyone enjoyed April 4th as much as I did!!

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:
 “DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics
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…
