Squiggly Colourful Ombre Nails

Yeah, I said "squiggly".. I know.. Weird!

I stumbled across some amazing nails on tumblr, I do believe.. I hit my print screen button, as I usually do, so I can save the image later on (I have a program for all my screen shots to be saved for my perusal later on).. Yeah.. Silly Dee! This isn't YOUR computer. Le sigh.

Thankfully my brain had some sort of photographic memory moment and I was able recall the general idea behind the nails.. I apologize to the original poster, if I stumble across your photo again (which I should), I will give credit where credit is due!

These are the nails.. And I received many compliments on them! I used Brucci polish for the green and yellow: the green doesn't have a label, but the yellow is Emmi & Olli Go Bananas, then it is OPI What's With The Cattitude, OPI Ogre The Top Blue (index finger), and OPI Elephantastic Pink, as well as OPI A Grape Fit (middle and ring), then the white is China Glaze White on White.

Now I just want to share two other photos with you all..

I am sure many of you are fans of True Blood - I am as well! We have a group of friends that come over on Sundays so we can all watch it together.. And of course there has to be snacks involved. I found these cupcakes sometime last year, and I think I have made them at least four times now (3 for the True Blood crew and once for a co-workers birthday).. BUT this time I decided to go with the recent fad of adding oreos into the cupcakes..


No word of a lie.. These were the best red velvet True Blood cupcakes I have made to date.. JUST SAYING!

And I thought I would toss in some Ben and Fonze for you all to glance at. It was cage cleaning night the other evening.. I figured these two clowns would behave on the chair.. I was correct, of course, and they looked too cute - enjoy!

So much cuteness! Love how colourful the mani is, the cupcakes look delicious (I love red velvet and WHOO True Blood!) and your pets are so cute!

Those cupcakes look so good! In case it's not super secret, it'd be great if you could post the recipe so we can try them out too! :)

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…
