For Ben

Hey everyone!

So, a couple of weeks back, whilst I was extremely sick (ok, laryngitis, so I didn't feel the worse, I just had no voice, a super sore throat, and painful coughing fits), I was working my way through the complete set of Sex & The City during my time off from work. One of the afternoons, when I was feeling particularly sorry for myself, I decided that I would go get Ben from his cage and make him watch copious amounts of episodes with me.

The only problem was.. Ben had passed away :(

The pain was so real. I think that when you have any type of pet that has been around you for years, and years, and years, it hurts so bad. Even if the pet isn't a conventional one. And even though Ben is like.. the size of a dog paw, the pain was immense.

The next day, I was starting to feel a smidge better health-wise and had returned to work.. so that evening I decided to do some nail art. The nails were just.. perfect.. but I felt like something was missing - so I added a shiny-glittery 'B' that I knew Ben would approve of.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Essie Off Tropic
  • Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet
  • Saran Wrap
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament
  • Small Brush
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


And just in case any one forgot about how handsome Ben was, here is your reminder.

That is all for today! Hope you all have a rad day, and be sure to give your pets an extra snuggle today!!

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…
