Floral Nail Tutorial

I have to preface this post with a few apologies.. Apology 1: I did film this as a video originally, but when I reviewed it, I didn't quite get in close enough so that it could be seen what I was doing - but I was still going to post it up. Apology 2: My computer has been acting strange lately. I used to be able to leave it on for days on end, now it likes to shut off at random. Random being when I was trying to upload to youtube last night. I honestly didn't want to try and do it again - it said it would take 500 minutes.. Ugh. Apology 3: I decided to take photos as I went along working on these nails.. And while I was taking the photos, they looked AWESOME on the camera.. When I uploaded and edited them.. Ehh.. not so much..

Apology 4: I am sorry about the quality of this tutorial, but hopefully you'll be able to understand what I'm trying to show.. My next tutorial (whenever that is..) will be filmed, in focus, and should upload properly. Fingers crossed?

Anyways, the nails that I am giving you a tutorial on are the floral gems I posted up a little while back.



The polish I used are: Butter London Lady Muck, OPI Shorts Story, Joe Butter, NYC Lexington Yellow, OPI Jade Is The New Black, OPI Who The Shrek Are You?, and Orly White Out.

I hope this might be useful to someone.. AND! If you decide to do something similar, I would love to see what you have done! Feel free to link me a photo, or e-mail me one! Thanks for taking a glance - and have an awesome day!

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…
