Day 3: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark & Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals

Hello everyone!

Day 3.. Silver and I actually did a touch of collaborating today.. Because we're that awesome!!

She said 'purple' and I said 'yup' - well, it sort of went like that.. Which means I had to slightly cheat and actually dig through the bag, but I'm sure that can be forgiven!!

I grabbed LPAD immediately - I knew I wanted to use that gem. I used to own a mini of it - but I never did get to use it.. When I finally had a chance to grab a bottle of it, I did. I hear about it so often that I figured I should just own it. (Side note: fantastic purchase!!)

As I was putting the other polish back that had to be moved out for me to have some digging room, I realized I was holding on to WnW Back Alley Deals.. It is a purple and fuchsia glitter. My immediate thought: accent nail. Secondary thought: the cool kid taped accent nail that Silver did on her day 1. Yes and yes!


Ok, me and tape mani activity don't get along very well, so I'm extremely pleased with how this turned out! I might even get crazy with a design next time.. Woah - head rush.. better settle down here!!

Pictures and a gif cannot do this glittery bad boy justice!


The super inky purple of LPAD with the super fun-ness of BAD is just.. fantastic together. As I type this I keep clawing my hand to just catch the glitter in different light. I am enjoying this a bit too much.

I should also mention that BAD was a gift from Collette who is a member of my birthday group.. It is just exceptional and I'm forever grateful to her for adding it to my collection!!

I hope you'll have a great day - see you for day 4!!

P.S - Remember to scope Silver's blog to see what she has going on for day 3!!

P.P.S - I got to do nails for S on Monday. She chose the whale nails that I did that I originally found from MAD Manis.. Hers ended up looking less psychotic than mine - a very good thing! S, if you're reading this - I hope your first day of school went well and that your nails are holding up nicely!! Thank you for the goodies - I LOVE THE EARRINGS!!

The whale nails are SO CUTE!

I've had Back Alley Deals for like, a year now and I don't think I've ever got around to using it. Better change that!

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:

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…
