The Cutest Spider.. Ever.

Hey everyone.

Yes, that is a legitimate statement, this will be the cutest spider, ever. And, for those that know me, you know the repulsion that spiders invoke in my core. I do a tap dance and basically scream/cry/try to sell my soul to the devil, anything to get away. I even barter with the spider. Like, if they disappear when I turn my back, we can pretend that we never crossed paths. It never works. The last spider I encountered even charged at me. That is enough of that story.

When I stumbled across these beauties on Born Pretty, I was like 'yes, please', and they were the item I was most excited for.

Now, I only pasted the spider to my nail for these photos. They, unfortunately, have this weird bump on the back, so they cannot adhere flush against your nail. I want to keep them for a fun special occasion mani.. so that is why it was only applied for this mani. BUT. This mani was specifically planned to showcase this little bad boy.


Guh! This mani is just so pretty/girly.. and distressed.. and spider-y, all at the same time! So good.

I used:
  • OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
  • Essie Rock at the Top
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Spider Gem

I did two coats of Don't Touch My Tutu! then did some 'sandwiching' with Rock at the Top (love this!!), then, I did the whole distressed water marbling with Liquid Vinyl. I love the whole look of this. I even switched back to my holy grail base coat-top coat pairing of China Glaze Strong Adhesive Base Coat-Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.. and I got 5 days worth of wear! It has been monnnnths with only a day or 2 while using the Glisten & Glow stuff. Apparently me and those 2 just do not mesh, which was upsetting as many people rave about it. Ahh well!

That is all for today. If you go check out the Born Pretty store, and want to pick up some rad nail art goodies (honestly, who doesn't?!), use the code AHB10 at checkout and save yourself 10%.

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

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
