My Mini Pirate Polish Collection

Hello everyone!

A bit of a different "post" today.. But it will still have some rad polish included, so it works!

Last weekend, I was at a salon/boutique here in Saskatoon called Alchemy.. While looking at all the awesome items within the shop, I came across some indie polish called 'Pirate Polish', so of course I was studying the few bottles in stock and ogling the nail wheels.. One of the gals came over and explained that the creator of the polish was local.. like.. here.. in the city. Seriously!? I nabbed a bottle of 'Radioactive' and a card, went home, and went to the etsy shop immediately.

While I was paying for my bottle of 'Radioactive', the gal told me that her favourite polish was a gem called 'Borsch'.. I was sort of sad when I didn't see it up on etsy, so I took to e-mailed Tara (aka the creator of Pirate Polish) to do some inquiring.. a few e-mails later, and I was going to be hooked up with four beautiful bottles of polish.


 Look at these beauties! I am in some serious like with all of them.

 

 Before I acquired the other gems, I used Radioactive in a slight gradient mani with Floam.. The pictures do not do the super brightness of the polish any justice, but let me tell you: it is in your face bright and lovely!

And I'm currently sporting 'Leeloo', because, well, how could I not?


 I got to meet Tara briefly yesterday when I picked up the polish.. and I honestly cannot wait to do more business with her. I have used two out of my five Pirate Polish now, and I am quite pleased with them. I am super excited to try the other three now!!

Have you picked up some Pirate Polish yet?? If so, which do you own? I'd like to know so that I can decide on my next purchases!!

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

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

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
