GLADvent Calendar Countdown + 600th Post

Hey everyone!

First off, this is my 600th post.. where does the time go?! I feel like I was just writing my first post a few days ago (we will not discuss the amount of years, thanks!)

Thanks for sticking around, or just popping in quick to see a post here and there. Even bigger thanks for following me on instagram or facebook.. or even twitter -- all of those fun links are on the side. (Shameless plug, I am sorry!)

BUT! My 600th post is not why we are here today. No, I am here to discuss my opening of the GLADvent calendar from Cuter Cuticles.

I have this amazing box..


...filled with numbered packets to be opened every day for a period of 24 days - just like an Advent Calendar. Now, I was never too keen on those gems growing up, but this is one I can get behind. Sammy makes some of my favourite nail care items, so this is going to be fun! (I have another advent-type box coming probably this week, we shall discuss that one when it gets here.. it is a combo from another one of my favourite nail care gals.. the excitement is real!)



Sadly, she only made a limited quality of these boxes, and I was lucky to snag one. With that being said, I figured I would share the open-age in case you would be interested in getting one next year.. which, let's be honest, who wouldn't?!

Now, I won't be blogging every day about what I open - but I will be posting it on instagram (you can scope me out HERE).. but, I will post a weekly update on Saturdays - so look out for my first post on December 5th!

Just because you cannot get one of these boxes does not mean you miss out on all of the action! You can visit her store HERE and pick up some amazing goodies anytime.. I mean, I did just place an order on Friday.. so.. there is that. I would highly recommend some cuticles oil and barrier butter. Tres amazing!

All right.. that is it for today, so I will probably see you guys at some point this week. I have basically a small army of nail polish to try for the first time to my right.. with a wealth more on the way. I best get cracking! And if I don't see you through the week, I will have that post for Saturday. That I can promise!

Hope you all had a swell weekend and will have a magical start to your week. 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!

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:

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…
