Coachella Dweller & When Monkeys Fly!

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post to share this combo that I tossed on the other day. I sort of went on, um, a small polish buying spree (aka I physically bought 6 nail polish and have 6 more coming in the mail..) so basically my untried stash has tripled throughout the weekend.. Which means I made myself a deal: nothing more until all those are at least used once. Yeah, we shall see how long that lasts. I mean, what?

Anyways!

Orly Coachella Dweller is a polish that I wanted as soon as I saw it.. but I didn't order it immediately.. though when I saw it irl at Sally's the other day, it was in my mitts in a flash. And two other Orly polish. It was buy 2, get 1 free. Geez!

Then, the next day, I was out doing some 'I'm hungover, but I can't sleep' shopping, and bought a couple of OPI polish (and one China Glaze..) one of said OPI polish was When Monkeys Fly! I knew there were some issues with glitter curling, but it looked absolutely lovely, and I knew it was would pair perfectly with Coachella Dweller. It does.

I must warn you all though.. I am only going to post one photo. Why? Well.. After the "hungover shopping", my sister asked me to put some turquoise hair colour on the tips of her hair. Then she offered to put some blue on the underneath of my super rad red hair. Great idea. BUT! My hair isn't absorbing colour properly anymore. It has led to a bit of a blue nightmare. My hair looks cool, but there is blue colour every where else. So. You will see some blue on my fingers. I apologize. This is why you only get one photo. I didn't want to scare anyone else away with my smurf digits.



Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Orly Coachella Dweller
OPI When Monkeys Fly!
Poshe Top Coat
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


I went with two coats of Coachella Dweller, and 1-2ish coats of When Monkeys Fly! Now, because of the "taco glitter" action (which, by the way, doesn't bother me in the slightest), I used a coat of Poshe, followed by a coat of Seche Vite. Worked like a charm. The glitter was completely smooth. Genius!

I actually like this combo so much that I am making some matching earrings.. Yeah, I'm that lame.

Hope everyone is having a great day! Time to go figure out which untried gem to go with next.. See you all later!!

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 …

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…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
