Heart Mixed Nails + Some Swatch Activity

Hey everyone!!

The other evening, as I was preparing to start working on my nails - I told my sister I didn't know what to do. She asked something like 'what do you feel like doing?', and then I told her to peruse my nail inspiration board on pinterest and pick something out for me. She did. I really like her choice! She chose this PIN and then asked me how I was with making hearts. I don't think I'm too terrible at doing them.. I could have done a few less and a bit more delicate.. but me and my love of extra activity on my nails. I'm not sorry for it (:


I used 2 coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather on my thumbs and pinkies, 2 coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff on my index fingers and my ring fingers, then 1 coat of Orly Mirror Mirror on my middle fingers followed with two coats of China Glaze Techno. Once MVIB was fairly dry, I went in with my dotting tool and some LL and made the hearts.

I really enjoy mix nail manis.. Something about them not matching but working together.. Though this is a fairly "safe" mix nail mani.. I feel like I have some how just challenged myself.. Hmm..

I also just wanted to toss in some swatch photos.. I don't feel like my swatch activity is strong enough for any of these to warrant their own post. One day I will get good at it. Or not. You'll just have to keep putting up with my attempts at nail art instead. On to the photos..


This is ILNP A Nice Chianti on top of China Glaze Gaga For Green. I like this combo quite a bit because it some how makes me think of a zombie, and I think zombies are rad.. So that makes this rad! Yup.


This is Plump Polish Kyla The Great. Sigh. I really wanted to like this.. but I had so many application problems! I am going to give this polish a revisit at some point and make it look great. I promise. It makes me scared to try using Riots Not Diets. They are so pretty in the bottle.. I just had many problems making it work on my nails.. Keep your fingers crossed for next time!!


This is 3 coats of Orly Peaceful Opposition. I quite like this.. though it feels so dainty and girly.. I mean, there is nothing wrong with that.. just strangely beautiful. That is what I will go with.

I'm trying to get through my untried stash.. I swear it doesn't deplete at all. No matter what I do. And I have been pretty good with buying (er, NOT buying) nail polish right meow. One of these days I will have it whittled down to nothing. Right?!

I hope you're all having a great day - I will see you all 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! 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
