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! Thi

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 :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
