Blued Lines

Hello everyone!!

Today I bring you a post based off of THIS POST aka my favourite thing to do - find amazing photos of awesome nails via pinterest and try to re-create them (re: ruin them) my way. She used tape, and it obviously look stellar.. I didn't use tape.. Because.. Tape and I are enemies and I refuse to put up with his shenanigans!



My line work looks insanely "shotty" in these photos, but I swear, in real life, from a safe distance, they look pretty professional. Ok, from a safe distance and without my glasses or contacts.. (:

I used two coats of OPI Skull & Glossbones as my base, then I used my little brush and some OPI Ogre The Top Blue and China Glaze First Mate.

These are the nails I will be sporting to see City & Colour tonight at the Saskatoon Jazz Fest.. though now that I mention that, I do remember I was going to use the new album as inspiration and paint my nails like the CD. Gosh dangit.. Well.. we will see - I will probably just sport these and do those nails some other time. I'm obviously on par with all of my thoughts these days.

Hope everyone is having a spectacular day - see you again soon!

Ooooh wait! Something to share.. a sneak peek, if you will..

Scope out this bottle shot.. I need to prepare a post all about it.. but I'm super excited.. and you all should be too.. There might be a little giveaway coming my reader's way.. I mean, what? Look at this awesome polish! More details coming 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:

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…
