Indie review: Chirality Nail Polish!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today I have for you another wonderful little indie polish called Chirality Nail Polish. I forget how I heard about these but I liked what I saw in other reviews so I picked up a few during a Black Friday sale (I think). So I decided to try them out and see what I had!

Across the board, the formulas were lovely and shown here in 3 coats, no top coat. Very smooth and easy to apply. All of these are medium-strength linear holographics, as you’ll see! Unfortunately, there was no sun the day I did these, and we all know it takes sunlight to truly bring out holo beauty.

Indie Review: ATC Fallen Angel Collection!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today I have a couple of hot new polishes to share. These babies have been lighting up the indie world for the last couple of weeks and I’ve got them! From Above The Curve’s Fallen Angel Collection, I’ve got Risen and Fallen Angel! I managed to catch these during a recent sale before they sold out. There are several more polishes in this collection, and you might just want them all.

Naughty Nails Art Contest!

Lovelies, we’re going to get serious for a moment. Did you know, it is estimated that 70% of women and men will come into contact with human papillomavirus during their life? That’s the group of viruses that can lead to cervical cancer!

Regular Pap tests, supplemented by appropriate HPV testing, will detect virtually all pre-cancerous changes and cervical cancers, and cervical cancer is completely preventable if pre-cancerous cell changes are detected and treated early. And considering that we can’t exactly look down and examine the cervix by ourselves, it makes it extra important to get that routine exam! You can find out more information at the National Cervic Cancer Coalition site about the virus and how to prevent it.

The lovely ladies of Sassy Nails, Lena Loves Nails, Frugal Polish and myself decided to have a fun nail contest. And since January is National Cervical Cancer Awareness month, we wanted to tie them together. How? With naughty nail art of course!

So we present to you, The Don’t Be A Dick To Your Cervix Giveaway! The name is cheeky but the topic is fun and it’s for a great awareness! Read on to see what AMAZING sponsors and UNBELIEVABLY FANTASTIC prizes we have lined up for you! And even if you don't do nail art, read on because you can still win!

Indie review: Mentality Nail Polish!

Hello, my lovelies! 

Do you like the new graphics? January weather is always so dark and dreary and cold and nasty that I decided to make some pretty snowy graphics for the blog. These were inspired by my friend Mary (not guest blogger Mary, a different Mary!) who is fabulously talented and makes beautiful graphics.. Mine isn’t as pretty as hers was but it’ll do! Then I added some icicles and cool purply blues to the header graphic as well, because I loathe the cold and never feel like I get warm during winter!

Indie Review: Pretty & Polished!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today I have something for special for you! I am very pleased to be able to show you a couple of the soon-to-be released “Save the Dauphine” collection by Pretty & Polished!

This of course, is a reference to Marie Antoinette, who inspired a whole line of beautiful polishes.
