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!

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…
