smART Nails Stencils + Spikes

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you some nail art featuring 3 never before used things to me: smART Nails stencils, nail spikes, and Orly Mirrorball.

Question: are you ready for greatness? Well, even if you are not, you're about to have your eyes assaulted by some.. here goes!


 Pretty rad, right?!

I used:
FxFS White Matter
Orly Neon Heat
Orly Mirroball
FxFS Dark Matter
smART Nails stencil in P041
Nail Spikes (bought off of ebay)
Dotting Tool

I was contacted a little while ago by a rep for smART Nails asking if I would like to try out some stencils, and I wanted to give them a whirl because.. a stencil.. for your nails? Yeah! I think it adds a fun element to those that maybe are not too keen about freehanding, and, who also might not be to great at grasping the concept of nail stamping (me?). I saw these skull stencils and knew I needed them immediately!

The usage was actually really quite easy. Just make sure that you stay patient and allow your polish to dry before applying the stencil. I, for once, showed restraint and waited - I could only imagine the goobly mess that would have occurred if I did not wait. I have a few others to test out, but so far, so good! I highly recommend them. They are always adding new designs, and they are at a good price - $1.99 for 10 stencils.

Oh, but wait! For the month of November, you can get 25% off of the purchase of the stencils. That is pretty rad! Just use the code NOV25 during checkout. There are a few avenues to check them out as well: FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, PINTEREST, YOUTUBE, and TWITTER.

As for the nail spikes.. I absoFREAKINGlutely love them. Are they something I would suggest wearing on a daily basis - or to the office? No. But for a fun night out event - like a birthday or concert, yes. Wear all the spikes! 

Enjoy -- see you 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

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
