Let's Get Mani-wise: Mani Bombs

Hey everyone!

I recently took to my FB page to ask people to help me come up with a name for a little series that I want to start posting time to time, and my rad friend Kimber came up with this name, and I like it, so I will use it! Thanks again Kimber!

Anyways, what I want to talk about in this 'series' are things that I do/use to make my manis even... MORE. Does that make sense? Well, hopefully it sort of does. I am bad at explaining things at times.

Today I want to talk about mani bombs. You have probably seen them around the netz, and that is great! Maybe you have not purchased any yet as they seem confusing? Or maybe you don't 'get them' - understandable!

At first, I figured I didn't need these - I didn't see the point (besides the really rad fizzy activity!), but then I did some research. Did you know that these little bad boys are filled with oils that actually do amazing things for your mitts? Plus, you get to soak your hands in warm water for 5-15 mins.. not really doing anything, and taking in the amazing smells? Then afterwards, you just rub in all the oils and just veg for an additional 30 mins. Umm.. sign me up!

You can take to etsy and search them up - you will probably find a wealth. You really cannot go wrong. I will list two Canadian sellers that I have personally purchased from, and will continue doing so! Cuter Cuticles & Soak It!  (side note: these gals have many rad products listed that I would highly recommend and will chat about at other times - but you cannot make a bad purchase, I promise!)

Or maybe you want to try these gems out, but would rather have more control? You can make your own - want to learn how? Click HERE.

For the photos in this post, I am using a Treasure Mani Bomb from Cuter Cuticles.. umm.. what?! YEAH! Besides getting all the goodness out of using this bomb, you also get a little treasure. Be still my heart!


Love this! I am trying to do a mani bomb every time I do polish removal, but that almost seems too luxurious, so I am doing at least once a week, if not twice. And that ring? Adorbs!

I will be posting about that many a bit later - but for now, enjoy the teaser pic!

Thanks for scoping out this post, see you 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!

This is actually …

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 and desires of T.…

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
