Everybody Walk The Dinosaur!

Hello everyone!!

Long time, no post - I know. I took a little mental vacation.. I have still been doing my nails and photographing them, but the idea of uploading, editing, and preparing posts just sounded like a nightmare. Yes, I know, in the grand scheme of things, it really is not a lot of work, but to my mental state, it just seemed like too much. I apologize.

I am starting to feel recharged, and good 'mentally' (I realize this makes me sound like I am really out to lunch/a space case, but I promise it is just health related and that it just affects my moods. I am not depressed or bipolar or anything else.)

Funny that the things that spurred me to post was snapping off my long ass nails yesterday. Ok, one snapped off, the others I just clipped down. My post for today will feature my newly shortened nails, and then my next few posts will feature my long bad boys that I had for quite awhile. Admittedly, I missed short nails. So much easier!

I was looking for inspiration earlier, and one group of gals gave me a bunch - I was just getting some supplies ready to do something else, when I saw my dino nail decals and completely changed what I wanted to do.

I found the base photo HERE and just.. went from there!


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze Violet-Vibes
  • China Glaze Glow With The Flow
  • China Glaze Treble Maker
  • China Glaze Daisy Know My Name?
  • China Glaze Home Sweet House Music
  • China Glaze DJ Blew My Mind
  • MakeItStick Dinosaur Nail Vinyls
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I honestly used two triceratops decals, as those are my favourite dinos, but I got to say that the pterodactyl and t-rex decals are killing it with the background!

That is all for today. Happy to be back. I am hoping to post 1-2x a week, mayhaps more, mayhaps less, but I am back.. well.. I was always still present and doing nails, just not sharing them. Fail.

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
