January Polish Days - Try Something New!

Hey everyone!!

Something a little different to bring to you today.. I came across this 'Polish Days' monthly themed blog participation.. ehm.. thing, and thought that it sounded fun! I had a really long time to figure out a new technique to try, but of course, I'm a master at procrastination and left everything to the very last minute.

Of course, at the last minute, I'm busy.. but I did need to paint my nails for work the next day (aka today).. SO! I figured if I paint my nails with an untried polish, that counts as something new (it even says in the description for the month that you can just use an untried polish).. I stay within the rules AND get to test out a new polish..

And that polish is..

Deborah Lippmann Let's Go Crazy

So, let's!




This is 'Happy Birthday' in a fun grape jelly base.. and I really, really like it! This is two coats.. it dried super quick, I'm happy with it.. All in all, I'd say it is a winner. My last two Lippmann purchases have been awesome in my book! To date, they are the most expensive polish in my collection.. but.. if I have my way (with myself.. that sounds weird.. ummm) I will add a Chanel polish in to my collection next month. I really, really want it. And I'm on a "no-buy" for the rest of this month.. Anyways, I'm babbling!

Make sure to check out the other posts for today - they look gorgeous!

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:

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…
