Mod Cloth Bubbly Beverage Dress

Hey everyone!

The other day, I was contacted by a ModStylist over at ModCloth and asked if I wanted to participate in a nail art challenge; the challenge? To do a design based off of one of the zillion dresses currently offered on the website. Uhh, yeah, I would love to do that!

Unfortunately, I had a very busy weekend and the post is due up by Monday, but I was able to sit down earlier and really go through the dresses that I had selected as inspiration. Then I figured I would choose a dress that I would absolutely, 100% wear. Then it was easy. Something black.. with white.. and dots! There were a few options, but I went with the Bubbly Beverage Dress.

At first, I did most of the nails just featuring one of the dot designs.. which was large dots with mini black dots running throughout, medium dots, and small dots. I was fairly happy with it.. then I decided that each nail should feature all dot designs (except for my pinky) and in the same triangular fashion. Awesome. I liked where I was going.. thhhhen.. I was like 'duh, I would definitely add in a pop of red', quickly change my ring finger to an accent nail of red. Perfect. This is how I would paint my nails if I owned this dress. Actually, I would sport these nails at any point in time.


I used:

  • Duri Rejuvacote (base coat)
  • Formula X for Sephora Dark Matter
  • Formula X for Sephora White Matter
  • piCture pOlish O'Hara
  • HK Girl Glisten & Glow
  • Various dotting tools
  • Tiny Brush

Now my question for all of you: what would be your choice of dress from the website, and how would you paint your nails? Leave me a comment and let me know.

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

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
