Lush Lacquer: Slumber Party, Cruisin 4 a Bruisin, and Snow Globe

Hey everyone!

I received these gems in the mail a couple of weeks ago (I will include links for you to go scope them out and possibly purchase from etsy, where I purchased mine).. and I wanted to use them all in a mani before I posted about any of them. I finally have that task completed.

I think I now have a solid 6 (7?) polish from Lush Lacquer, and I just absolutely love them. I especially like the three I am about to share with you all - so, let's take a little looksie!





We will start with Slumber Party. When I saw THIS post over at Chalkboard Nails, I needed to have this polish so I could wear this combination. And I'm really, really glad I did get my mitts on it.

This polish is a lovely mix of tiny white (matte) circular and square, circular black, circular blue, hex blue, hex purple, and large square pink glitters.

I used two coats of Slumber Party over a coat of Orly Mirror Mirror.. I was going to leave it with one coat (because it did look amazing) - but I wanted more pink square glitter! For some reason that just makes this polish for me. All of the other colours mixed together are swell, but then it is like 'BAM! Pink squares - you're welcome."

I had no trouble applying it either - which is how it usually goes for me and my polish from Lush Lacquer: zero application problems.



Up next is Cruisin 4 a Bruisin - the name alone is awesome - I guess it is pretty great that the polish coincides with the name. When I first opened these gems, I knew I needed to wear Slumber Party immediately, and I told my sister she could wear either this one or Snow Globe, and she went with this one. She painted Essie Mesmerize as her base - now, she said she should have gone with a lighter base - but I thought it still looked quite nifty.

When I went to use it.. I had a minor dilemma: what colour to use as my base? I immediately figured pink.. I thought it would look really 80s-like (I feel I was correct).. Then I was like 'oooh wait, a light blue!'.. When I was collecting a light blue from my shelf, I scoped a yellow and was like 'that could be fun!' I painted each base on a nail wheel, topped them with 2 coats of C4AB and posed a question to my amazing birthday group beauties - and everyone agreed with a colour, or two, or all three. Then I though "ooh, gradient!" but, I wanted to do a gradient right after wearing (aka Friday) and I didn't want to do to two gradients in a row (though there is nothing wrong with that!).. Then it occurred to me: alternate. Duh.

The pink is China Glaze Sugar High, blue is Essie Bikini So Teeny, and the yellow is Sinful Colors Unicorn - all of them topped with 2 coats of C4AB. Fun. 80s-esque.. aka my dream.


Lastly, Snow Globe. Lovely, right? I immediately knew I'd be wearing this over black. It looks amazing. What is not to like? Tiny white glitter, and an array of colourful activity mixed in: hex and squares in red, yellow, blue, purple, pink.. This is 2 coats over China Glaze Liquid Leather.

I loved all of these combos SO much that I made polish earrings out of them.. I took photos, but they all looked rough - I shall try again and edit them in.

I absolutely love these 3 newly acquired Lush Lacquer nail polish gems. Do any of my excellent readers happen to own any LL? Or if you could own any - what would you like to have? I noticed on their etsy page that they have their holiday polish up.. Must. Be. Strong.

Take care until next time everyone!!

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…
