Mix and Match and Studded

Hey everyone!

I seriously think I need to show my BFF my nails before I do posts. A lot of time she will give me rad names for my posts. Must remember to do this from now on. I think I should have warned my intro with a "side note" - sorry, next time!

I am going to say that I am in love with these nails before I show you my photo. I honestly cannot stop staring at them.. They are a mix of different activities and they are honestly just delightful.

I based the design 96% from this photo and the other 4% from this photo. The reason being is that the first photo design just felt like it needed something extra, but I liked the colours better.. But I wanted the studs from the second photo.. Ohhh perfect, mash them together-ish.


We have Butter London Cheeky Chops on my thumb and middle fingers, Orly Liquid Vinyl on all the others, we have OPI Metallic 4 Life layered on to my ring finger (I totally wrote 'ringer' first.. I think I like that combo-word.. moving on..), and then some Orly White Out for the dots and lines. The studs are from my Cult Nails order a little while back. LOVE THEM! I love anything studded. If I had studded pants, I'd probably be wearing them right now. Note to self: find studded pants.

Sure, my lines should be thinner and neater, but I don't even care. I love the whole mixed design looks. Everything is different, yet they all work together. Just so good! Also, I snipped off my nails again. This is probably my 1,000th time saying this, but: I love short nails. I know a lot of people say you cannot put any designs or fit anything on short nails, but I say that is so wrong. There is just something about short nails that makes my heart smile. This is definitely a heart smiling moment.

Also, I have decided to go on a no-buy until some time in September. I am quite pleased because my pal Silver is also doing it. I just feel lately that I'm too impulsive with my polish purchasing. And I have so many sweet babies to play around with that I almost feel negligent. Yeah, I went there. I do have a ninja polish order coming in - probably next week, but they were bought and paid for before my official no-buy start. AND the only polish I will purchase will be for my birthday group, and I'm basically a month ahead, so.. I should be golden!

That is all for today - see you all again very soon!!

P.S - What do you all think my new header?! My amazingly awesome friend Jade made it for me! I am actually really pleased every time I load up my blog to view my posts now.. The header is perfection!!!

I think the studs & the dots are a cute/edgy combo! :)

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…
