Creme De Menthe

Hello everyone!

Before I do a little intro on what I will be sharing with you today, I first want to kind of ask a question of you all.. I posted on the blogger help forum, and have yet to receive any type of response.. Anyways.. I feel like a total jerk.. I keep going on to other people's blogs with the full intent of leaving a comment.. but after I have typed out my comment.. and hit enter.. nothing. It is like I'm signed out. I check now when I load up a blog. The top right corner stays to sign in or register.. yet I am "signed in", but I cannot comment or anything. It is very frustrating. I don't know if I picked up some sort of, well, some sort of something.. but if I come across something in my blog roll, and want to leave a comment, I want to LEAVE A COMMENT, and I cannot. I use firefox as my browser and refuse to use anything else. Help? Has anyone had a similar thing happen? Any fixes? I'm desperate! Who has two thumbs and just fixed their problem? THIS GUY!

Ok. On to the good stuff.

When I spoke about Silly Lily Polish J-E-L-L-O the other day, I did mention that I bought another polish from her.. and I am going to share it with you all right meow. I was scrolling through her items, and saw a few that could have been my second polish, then I laid eyes on this gem and it was all over. It is Silly Lily Polish Creme De Menthe and I personally love it.




Products Used
Nail Life Gripper (base coat)
Silly Lily Polish Creme De Menthe
Cult Nails Wicked Fast (top coat)




A pale green jelly base, green, green, and green glitter, and matte white glitters? Um, I feel like this was designed for me!

My application might not have been the best - I honestly need to thin it just a touch (mental note: do that asap or you'll forget!) but I honestly just love this polish. I did get a few compliments on it - and some one thought I did all the little white dots by hand. Apparently people think I have some serious talent!!

Now - I want to just talk a bit more about these bottles.. I really like them! I like the shape of them, I like how they were packaged, I just liked them a lot.


 First, when I took them out of the box, they looked something like this (obviously much nicer.. I ripped them out of the little baggies before I could take photos.. I'm impatient!) - I already liked how they were wrapped in bubble wrap and then placed in a little bag.. it seems like some thought was put in to rather than 'whelp, bubbled wrapped - slam dunk in to the box!' (I'm not complaining about that either - the main thing is bubble wrap.. I just like the extra thought here).

Next, I like the bottle shape. They aren't round, or square, they are octagons! I love it! I don't have any bottles that are in an octagonal shape - and I really quite enjoy it! I know.. what a loser getting all worked up about a bottle shape, but it is just delightful!


I'm a stickler for little details.. might I mention this one.. a little sticker on the top of the cap? I pretty much geeked out at this point. There are indie companies with  beautiful bottles, labels, etc, but this actually warmed my heart.


 Oh, and then, when you have a child weeping (which he does pretty much any time I'm not focusing all of my attention on him) when you're doing "work", you bring them over, and they photo bomb every shot until you give them your hand and allow them to scope out the camera. Bennie, why must you be oh so cute?

I was not sent these polish for a review, I bought them on my own accord, I just wanted to share with you all how pleased I was with these polish. Even the shipping to Canada seemed quite quick - which is always a plus in my books! Check out the shop HERE - there are some absolute gems over there.

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

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

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
