Dainty Roses

Hey everyone!

I just finished up my nails for today - and immediately wanted to share them.

I picked up a bottle of Formula X Dainty yesterday and really wanted to put it to use - but didn't know what I wanted to do with it. Then I remembered these water decals from LadyQueen and it was settled.



I also decided to re-shape my nails back to be more almond-y.. such a good decision!

I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Formula X Dainty
Rose Water Decals from LadyQueen (scope them HERE)
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I actually had a very easy time using these decals. The last set I used from LadyQueen applied upside down/backwards (so inside of having the image show up top, it would show the white backing, which I had to quickly flip before they settled on to my nail.. I expected these to do the same) - but no, super easy to apply. Just make sure that you apply them exactly as you want them to sit. These gems are unforgiving! They settle in suuuper quick and you cannot manipulate them.

I had pictured them being smaller, which, I could have cut out singular roses and applied them that way - I was going to do extra dots on the nails, but I just applied these in full, and I love it!

Also, I wanted to show a comparison shot of Dainty to White Matter to show that Dainty isn't just a white polish.. where White Matter is a perfect stark white, you can clearly see that Dainty is a tinge warmer. It isn't so in-your-face whiteness. I love it - and the name is perfect for it.


So.. what I am saying is that you do, in fact, need both.

That is all for today! See you all 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:

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…
