Day 28: Lacquistry Lake Placid On Acid

Hey everyone!!

THE LAST DAY!

What an absolutely crazy (and wonderful!) adventure this has been.. and a little tiring - but in a really great way!

I said the last two days were going to be polish that I was really excited to share with you - now, I get to use this on a complete technicality.. which I am going to explain.

I had the "original" bottle of Lake Placid On Acid.. and I thought it was great. I did read about Jenna having to remake some polish because of bleeding, etc, but I honestly didn't think anything of it. Then, a couple of weeks ago, there was nail mail waiting for me.. and I thought "strange, I haven't ordered anything lately.." - it was from Jenna and it was a replacement bottle of LPOA.. I honestly didn't think I could like the polish anymore than the original. I was wrong.




So. Beautiful!

I put two layers of LPOA over a base of Butter London British Racing Green.. and I absolutely love this. I did happen to have a photo of the original LPOA on my nails. Not a great photo.. but, I can definitely say that I love this reformulation a lot more than the original. This was a polish that I bought specifically for its name - and I will be forever glad I did so.



Also.. my last day of the challenge.. did anyone notice anything?

I cut my nails right at the very beginning.. a quick refresher..


And I just let them grow to what they are now.. that is 28 days and now they are beastly long (at least as far as I am concerned). As badly as I want to chop them off - I will just leave them until there is a seriously crack/break/I cannot live my life with them.

Thank you all for checking in with me everyday, or every once in awhile.. We are about to head in to October aka my Christmas.. Expect at least one Halloweenicure every week (:

How about a quick overview of my 28 Challenge of Untried Polish..



 See you all again very soon!

OH - and - Silver is finishing up the challenge over at her blog - make sure you go check it out!!

Take care!

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

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!

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
