Cranberry Splash with a touch of Frozen Flame

Hey everyone!

First, a touch of an apology. I'm truly sorry for the minor absence on my part. I have kind of been in some strange "funk" lately. I am still not sure what exactly happened, nor do I want to bore you all with details.. But I think I had a little bit of a shutdown period. BUT. I feel like I'm getting myself all rebooted up.. and I'm ready to join my regular life again aka blogging. I knew there was something really "off" with me when I was wearing the same horribly chipped nail polish for 3 days. Whenever I get a chip, it is immediately off when I return home. Finally, going in to day 4, I was like 'ENOUGH!' and rectified the situation. I did do a nail look that was awesome, but I didn't even photograph it. I will have to do so again soon. It was using some gems that Silver sent to me. Once I use one of the gorgeous polish she sent me (again) - I will do a full post! So.. sometime this week!

Ok. Moving on!

Saturday night.. during one of my study breaks, I decided to cut my nails riiiight off. I decided that after snapping out of my "funk", I should do a proper restart with my nails. Clipped right down. It always makes me really, really happy when I have super short nails! Less chipping.

I didn't know what I wanted to use.. and I didn't really want to not be studying (re: cramming) for too long. Then I remembered that I had a couple of polish in my untried drawer. Snapped up China Glaze Cranberry Splash and Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame. Yes and yes.


Side note: My hands are EXTREMELY dry these days. I put lotion on at least 10 times a day, cuticle butter, and I even wear my special medicated (eczema steroid cream) at night, with gloves, and they are still unbelievably dry. I am probably dehydrated. I so apologize for that. GROSS!

I really wish I would have snapped a photo of Cranberry Splash on its own. It is exceptionally gorgeous. I have been lovvvving red polish lately. I am glad I got this and With Love from the Holiday 2012 collection. They both make my smile.

I used two coats of Cranberry Splash (even though one coat would have worked just as well) and followed that up with two coats of Frozen Flame. Love. They are very festive feeling. I like it.

I got China Glaze Cranberry Splash HERE & Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame HERE.

Talk to you all again soon!!

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

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

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
