Laid Back 31 DC - Day 11 - Splatter

Hello everyone!!

Today is the day for splatter nails.. and I am not even going to lie, I am pretty jazzed about the whole thing! I can't even think of any lame story to start this whole post.. I just want to share the photos. Shall I?





Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
OPI Can't Find My Czechbook
Orly White Out
China Glaze First Mate
Orly Glitz
Coffee Stick
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


I started with a base of OPI Can't Find My Czechbook - which I should have snapped a swatch photo of, but please, take my word on it, it is lovely! Then, using a coffee stir-stick, I started off with some white polish (Orly White Out), followed with a dark blue/navy (China Glaze First Mate), and finished with some gold (Orly Glitz). Despite some random non-splattery areas (just mass blobs of polish) - I did quite like the coffee stir-stick method more so than using a straw.. I also really, really, really like this combination of colours. I have received a wealth of compliments on this particular mani.. which is rad, because I think it is great too!

Check out what others did on the splatter day of the challenge - and I will see you all again very soon. Next is my second arch-nemesis in the nail art world: the tape mani.

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…
