Galaxy, Dots, Studs, and Floral - oh my!

Hello everyone!

I am really excited to share my nails with you all today.. Exceptionally excited!

My sister (who is awesome) sent me an inspiration photo via text. It is black based nails, some gold bullion beads, and a studded gold cross.. I really liked it, and she said they should be my party nails. I agreed.

Then, I was looking at it again last night, and liked the whole concept, but I wanted more.. I decided that a mix was needed, but that the cross would for sure stay (I was going to say 'as an accent nail', but technically, they are all accent nails.. you'll see)




Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
China Glaze Liquid Leather
China Glaze White on White
China Glaze Sugar High
Sinful Colors Unicorn
China Glaze First Mate
China Glaze Fairy Dust
Orly Glitz
Essie Bikini So Teeny
China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le
China Glaze Gaga For Green
Lime Crime Pastelchio
Sponge
Dotting Tools
Gold Studs
Poshe Topcoat


Phew! That is a lot of stuff to use.. but while doing them, it didn't feel like that. I will do a breakdown of each nail.. Here goes..

Thumb & Pinky - Galaxy - Base of black (Liquid Leather), sponged on some white (White on White), pink (Sugar High), yellow (Unicorn), and navy blue (First Mate).. Did some "detail" work with white (White on White), and then globbed on some sparkles (Fairy Dust).

Index - Dots - Base of black (Liquid Leather) and used my largest dotting tool to add some gold (Glitz).

Middle - Floral - Base of black (Liquid Leather), made the "roses" using a mix of blue shades (Bikini So Teeny and Secret Peri-Wink-Le), did detail work with navy blue (First Mate).. petal work using two greens (Gaga For Green and Pastelchio).. Then they didn't feel complete, so I added gold dots (Glitz) and some sparkle (Fairy Dust) on top of the "roses".

Ring - Cross - Base of black (Liquid Leather) and gold studs.

I really enjoy "mixed" manis, and I think this particular mix is at the top of my list - for now!!

Have an awesome day everyone, and I will see you again soon!!

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:

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…
