Chanel Malice

Hey everyone!

Today is just a "swatch" post. A couple of weeks back.. I had to make a rather difficult decision to have one of my pet rabbit's put to sleep. It was an awful day, and an awful experience (though the vet and his assistant were absolutely lovely people - so their decency was very appreciated).

She would have been 10 years old in March. It hurt even more because she was born in this house, and now.. she is no longer around.. There is just her brother left from the group of five babies, and, well, there is Bennie, but he doesn't count for anything *grin*

The next day, while scoping out things on the internet.. I came across a site that was selling Chanel Malice.. A colour that I have been wanting ever since seeing a swatch of it.. But I had held off.. until the day after my sweet baby girl's death.. In a moment of absolute weakness, I ordered the polish.



When it arrived, it was a bittersweet moment. Here was a polish that I desperately wanted! Yet to justify my buying it, I was an emotional wreck. I obviously needed to put it on pretty quick.. I wasn't disappointed.






Products Used
Nail Life Gripper
Chanel Malice
Cult Nails Wicked Fast



Le. Sigh. It is just exceptional. I wore this all on its own, and I received SO MANY compliments on it.. It is that captivating of a colour..

Yes, it is the most expensive polish I own (hopefully ever.. it was rough realizing what I had paid after escaping my emotion stupor) and I wish that I could say that it wasn't worth the price, that it was horrible formulation, that it was awful.. I'm sorry, my doves, I cannot. This was exquisite in every sense of the word. It applied like a dream (could have been a one coater - but you know meee!!), the brush was great, it dried wicked fast, it wasn't runny or too thick, just a real treat of a nail polish!

Now, I would be happy to add more Chanel to my collection, but it will be pretty difficult to fork about that much cash for a nail polish.. it will have to be pretty special!

Have a great Monday everyone!!

I am so sorry for your loss. I recently lost my rooster too on 22 january after 3 days of illness :( It was terrible, i tried so much to save him but he was in so much pain . Anyways coming back to the nail polish it is beautiful and a nice buy . Normally when i do impulsive buying i usually regret them after a while

My condolences. We lost a pair of our house rabbits this year, both due to old age. When our bunnies live long lives with us, we rejoice, but it makes their leaving even harder

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:
 “DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics
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…
