My Firmoo Glasses

Hey everyone!

Many, many moons ago.. I was contacted by a rad gem over at firmoo.com / firmoo.ca asking if I would be interested in reviewing a pair of glasses. Umm.. awesome.. because I also happen to be a goggle-wearer, so I was jazzed!

I picked out an absolutely beautiful pair of tortoiseshell glasses, and they were basically in my mitts within 10 days. Seriously. Fast.



I adore them, but, unfortunately, my eyes do not. I am going to say this is user error, there is a section where you do some measurements so that the lenses are aligned correctly, I figured I had mine correct, but I guess not. I know my prescription off by heart, but not my dimensions. I have that piece of prescriptive paper around somewhere. I should find it. See how far off I am.

When I wear these puppies, it is almost insta-headache and very weird vision. At times I can see fine, but it is like my depth perception has been eliminated. I have banged into walls and done some miss stepping while sporting these - hoping that it was just a case of having to 'break them in'. BUT~ That will not deter me from sharing this awesome site and hopefully introducing any of you prescription glasses wear-ers, and those that wear non-prescription to look 'cool', to a fun and inexpensive provider to help beef up your collection.

I am even putting my good looks on the line for all of you. Enjoy.

I'm sorry.



 You may have noticed in one of the pics that I sort of did my nails to match. Ok, well, I did the tortoiseshell nails ala chalkboard nails.. but I had to amp it up slightly.. and since this blog is particularly about nail polish..


 Also, if you're interested in some new specs, you should go HERE, you get to choose from selected frames - you get the frames, case, cleaning cloth, etc, for FREE - you just need to pay for lenses and shipping. Not too shabby at all.

Now for the stuff that I really know.. sort of, nails!

I used:
Elevation Polish in Cascade, Tettegouche, and Temperance
Gold Flake Top Coat

Excuse the tip wear and slightly dry-er than usual mitts - I spent the time before the photos doing an almost 12-hour baking/decorating/packaging spree with a friend. It was good. My back and hands hate me now.

My sister gave me an exceptionally rad idea for nail art last night! Be on the lookout for that in the next few days. See you!

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
