Dots & Skulls

If any of you have seen the movie 'Step Brothers', please say 'Dots & Skulls' like 'Boats & Hoes' and you'll appreciate the title of this post at least 15% more. I promise.

Hello everyone!!

My BFF bought me a couple of gem nail polish for my birthday.. and ever since opening the gift, I have not been able to get L'oreal Tangerine Crush out of my head. I was thinking about doing this skull print from a fabric swatch I have come across a time of three, but for some reason I thought Tangerine Crush was a shimmer polish and not a creme. I'm thankful I swatched it first.. it is a creme polish and would be a perfect base for what I had planned.. I am not even going to lie, I am extremely jazzed about how these nails turned out!

 


Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
L'oreal Tangerine Crush
China Glaze White On White
Dotting Tool
Nail Art Brush
Poshe Top Coat
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


I went with 3 coats of Tangerine Crush (side note: I am seriously in love with this polish!), then I added "large" dots of white on my nails.. then I added some smaller dots (side note for myself: when you do this again in the future, do the little dots at the end.. so you don't have a panic attack about spacing!), then I used a little brush and added a "box" at the bottom of the large dots for a "jaw".

Ok. I know.. Looking at the photos you might be like 'um, these look awful', but, BUT, from a normal human contact distance, they look bad ass. I received many compliments on them thus far AND people are like 'wow, skulls? those are great!'

That is all for now.. Thanks for the amay-za-zing polish Gord! I love it!!

Take care until ne- oh, wait a moment.. I got some nail mail today.. If I wasn't so pleased with these nails, which I'm currently sporting, I'd toss one of these on right meow - but - when I am done with this (aka when it chips) - what would be your first choice in polish?

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

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

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
