Gloomy, yet fun floral nails

I was going through the blogs on my blogroll yesterday.. err.. two days ago now? And was reading a post over on Kayla's about her reaching 1,000,000 page views (which is amazing - congrats!) and how she is having a little bit of a nail art contest.. The theme is 'floral', and I figured I hadn't done floral nails in awhile - and this was a good excuse to do so!

I'm not even going to lie.. I absolutely love what I did here.. I'm kind of obsessed with my nails right now. I'm not even embarrassed to admit that. I want to go out and show these off.. Awkweird? I don't think so!





I immediately knew I wanted to do something with a grey base for two reasons: one being that it has to be "gloomy" to get flowers to eventually bloom (I am going a bit poetic here..) and secondly, I remembered this post and how much I loved grey and pink together..

After I had the grey and pink dots.. I figured I wanted to go with yellow "flowers".. Rad.. Then I had white to add the floral-y/rose-ish accents.. But I looked at the pink polish again and thought 'why not?!' - I'm glad I did! It really made them pop! Then I did the leaves.. Cool-cool-cool.. But I felt that there was too much "dead space" and my white polish was still sitting in front of me, unused.. Ahh yes, little white dots..

I know there is a lot of activity going on.. But I am seriously in love with these nails of mine.. I'm hoping that they don't chip for another day or two.. I'm going to put off any serious chores til at least Monday (:

I hope everyone is having a great day/afternoon/evening/night and I will be back again with another post 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:

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…
