28 Day Challenge

Is what I will be starting tomorrow.

I have been on a bit of a no-buy lately.. For those of you that don't know what that means, it basically means I am not buying nail polish for a certain amount of time. Though I should say I haven't been buying nail polish for myself.. I still have birthday group people to buy for!! Surprisingly enough, I have done really well. I think I will be getting close to a whole month soon! I am planning to hold out until late September.. Fingers crossed!

ANYWAYS! I didn't go on this no-buy by myself. In fact, I didn't even plan to do this. My amazing pal Silver said she wanted to go on a no-buy before her trip to Las Vegas.. Then she mentioned about all the untried polish she has.. And how she would like to do a bit of a challenge to use these untrieds up once she gets home.. Which she will be home tomorrow - aka our start date!

Her set up is going to be a bit different.. I believe she is going to be featuring a specific brand of nail polish each week. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I don't have any brands where I have 7 to use.. I actually thought I really didn't even have that many untried to use.. ahem..


See.. I figured I would keep them all in this bag and be able to dip my hand in and do a random draw.. As you can see.. Um, there is no space to just dip my mitt in there.. whoops! I have WAY more untried polish than I thought. This is awkward..

SO! For the next 28 days, expect to see a "new" polish used everyday! Most of the time there will be no nail art activity.. Just a lot of swatch activity.. I still have a full time job and school to keep me exceptionally busy, but that isn't going to stop me!

Enjoy this.. journey with Silver and I! AND! As I said, we are starting tomorrow.. If you feel like joining in - leave me a comment so I can link to your blog/posts as well! That would be a lot of fun! Otherwise, you'll be seeing a lot from me friends (:

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 …

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…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
