Kayla Shevonne Inspired Ikat Nails

Hello everyone!

Now, I am no stranger to the excellence that is (are?) ikat nails.. but.. I happened to be reading Kayla's blog yesterday (congrats on the wedding.. if you ever happen to read this!) and I stumbled to her tutorials section. I hadn't decided on how I should do my nails.. and then saw the ikat tutorial. I know how to do them, BUT, the colours she had used for her tutorial instantly clicked with my brain and it was basically a done deal.

Scope her rad tutorial HERE.


I used Lime Crime Crema De Limon as my base colour (yellow), butter London Slapper (teal), China Glaze Liquid Leather (black), and China Glaze White on White. I also used my trusty little nail art brush and topped it all off with some Seche Vite.

I started a new job, and am absolutely loving it. Also, added to the fact that it is great, some of the gals in the office are also in to nail polish! Finally people who don't look at you like you're super crazy when you exclaim that you love nail polish. It is really nice.

One of the girls also inspired a polish purchase the other day. I will do a comparison post at some point. It is basically what I wanted one polish to be - but it is even better. Vague statement is vague.

My life is getting back on track. New job, new place, school is going well.. I figure I can add back my love affair with the polish world again. Expect more from me.. I should be back to regular programming reeeeeal soon. I have missed it.

Take care until next time..

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
