December 6-12 GLADvent Calendar Goodies

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you some more of my GLADvent calendar goodies. Shall we look at the goods all together, then break them down? Yes, splendid idea!


Ahh just looking at this spread of awesomeness is making my heart smile! Let's have a little chit-chat about the beauts before your eyes.

 Day 6 - YASSSS! Finally a mani bomb! Each day last week I was did a mini-chant of 'manibombmanibombmanibomb' in my head.. and I mean, I am not complaining about the items from last week.. but this was a great kick off to the week ahead!

 Day 7 - a dangly snowflake charm for the bracelet. At first, I was all amped thinking it was a star.. then I saw that it was a snowflake, and I was suddenly even more excited. I just like snowflakes, ok. Not snow, but the individual flakes I am cool with.

 Day 8 - a crystal nail file - my favourite type of file.. going straight to my purse!

 Day 9 - YASSSSSSSSSSSSS!! MORE CUTICLE OIL! Gingerbread Latte.. be still my sweet baby heart! I am OBSESSED with this scent. I am really glad that I ordered a large barrier butter in this scent. Nomnomnom.

 Day 10 - Wait.. is she.. going to.. start.. carrying lotion as well?! This literally might be my new favourite smell of all time. It has always been the smell of almond extract.. but this.. basically blew my shorts off. Magical! Side note: I do tend to have some sensitivity to lotions - and if it is going to be a bad reaction, it happens instantly. My mitts and I are safe. This is the greatest news.

Day 11 - YASSSSS yet again. An appearance of My Nails Did Vinyls. For serious?! This is freaking awesome! This is a rad variety stencil sheet.. I am dying. I am so excited to use them! I know you cannot tell from the photos, but there is a Christmas Tree, Candy Cane, Snowflake, Snowman, and star shapes.. then these like.. diamond patterns.. and.. light strands. YAY!


Day 12 - OOOOOO YASSSSS! Another mani bomb to close out the week!? HELL YEAH! This has been an exquisite week. Now I just want to rip open the remaining satchels.. must. refrain.

Thanks for tuning again.. I cannot wait to share with you the remaining 12 bags! Yay! 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:

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…
