Laid Back 31 DC - Day 7 - Ombre or Skittles

Hello everyone!

Confession: before I painted these nails.. I had bare nails for TWO DAYS.. in a row. I don't even remember making a full day with bare nails in the last.. well, couple of years. I honestly had zero ideas. Once my sister got wind of me not knowing what to do with my nails, she said 'do those roses on one nail, and cheetah print on another..' and then I thought 'hey, skittles are the next thing on the challenge list.. I can totally skittle with those ideas.' Because. To me, the whole "skittles" nails means they are all different, but related. She suggested hot pink polish. Done.





Products Used:
Nail Life Gripper (base coat)
China Glaze Sugar High
OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips
Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink
Ninja Polish Girly Floam
Rainbow Honey Pinkie Promise
China Glaze Liquid Leather
Brucci Lime Green
Brucci Roberta's Green Garden
Orly White Out
Gold Studs
Dotting Tool
Little Brush
Poshe Top Coat


Wow. Typing out the list of products used was a beeeast. Stick with me here, and I will go through what was used on each finger, and, if I bought them via a specific website, I'll link it up.

Thumb: China Glaze Sugar High & gold studs.. and some super glue and Poshe top coat.

Index: China Glaze Sugar High, Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink (from my amazing pal Silver!!), China Glaze Liquid Leather & dotting tools.

Middle: China Glaze Sugar High & 3-5 coats of Ninja Polish Girly Floam

Ring: China Glaze Sugar High, Orly White Out, Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink, OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips, Brucci Lime Green (no label..), Brucci Roberta's Green Garden, & dotting tools.

Pinkie: China Glaze Sugar High & 2 coats of Rainbow Honey Pinkie Promise.

These seem like they would be highly labour intensive, but I think I spent maybe 40 minutes max on them. And. I absolutely love it. They all work together, but are still completely different. Did I ever mention that I adore my sister??

Take care until next time!!

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…
