KL Polish Caramello

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post today.. well.. it should be a quick post. Though, I am going to talk about the KL Polish for a moment or 3.

So, I ordered them on pre-order, then there was a whole to-do there - whatever.. they arrived last week - one was sadly broken. The packaging was atrocious. They were in a bubble mailer.. ok, fine, but there was wrapped in tissue paper.. that is it. Like, you couldn't toss some bubble wrap on each bottle as well? Guh. Whatever. I e-mailed them, then are sending a replacement.. it still reeks of polish in this zone.

Now, I have used.. 3 of the polish this far - just haven't posted. The first one I used was Gumption! which is an amazing blue shade - the smell! Oh my god! It smells like.. the nail polish I used to buy in the 90s - the ones filled with all the bad stuff. I have not smelled anything like that in YEARS! I finished painting my nails, doing some nail art.. and the smell didn't go away. I had to take it off. The next polish I used, Snickerdoodle was much less smelly. It was fine. And this one, Caramello doesn't really have a smell. So apparently it is just Gumption! Ugh.

Also.. the brushes.. oh god. The brushes. I know in Kathleen's video she said this was a great brush design, etc.. they are awful. They are weirdly tapered.. but there are random long strands where they are shorter.. and the polish literally just goes everything! Basically, I have to slap polish on EVERYWHERE then do loads of cleaning. Sigh.

The reason I am posting this one, though, is because I really quite like this shade! I figured I might as well share.


I went a little heavy-handed on my faux marble effect - but.. I still like it.

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • KL Polish Caramello
  • Formula X White Matter
  • Essie Licorice
  • Gems
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

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 …

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…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
