Day 8: Sally Girl Grape & Nails Inc Special Effects Sloane

Hello everyone!!

Another two for one day.. I think I might have to keep doing this to just get through all of my untrieds.. I feel like this should make me feel bad, but it doesn't at all!!



The Sally Girl polish is actually scented - which is probably why they went with the name "grape" as I feel the colour is not grape-like at all - but that doesn't make it any less lovely! It is more grey-purple-taupe in my eyes. I honestly didn't know it was scented, as it doesn't say anywhere on the bottle.. yet as I was painting my nails I said: I smell grapes.. whaaa? Then it all made sense.

The Nails Inc is from their Special Effects line and it is "3D glitter".. It is really in your face sparkle-y in certain lights - I obviously quite like that! And the base colour is opaque within two coats.. I cannot complain about that!! It is just really gritty. I even topped it with two coats of top coat.. I bet it will be a complete beast to remove. Oh well!

I included the out of focus photo as I feel the glitter give you a taste of how exciting the polish can be when the light hits it.

Hope everyone is prepared for Monday - and that you'll all have a great day! See you tomorrow!!

P.S - remember to head over to Silver's blog to see what she posts up today!!

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!
