Sinful Indeed! - Haul Part 1

Oooooh, Sinful Colors. So glad I found you. For most nail polish fanatics, this is not news... But for me who had never bought that many nail polishes before, this is heaven!

I went into Harmon's and found Sinful Colors nail polish for $1.89 each! LOVE that! Plus they actually had some reallyyyy cute colors! :)

I'll break this down in different posts because I was so happy about the price that I bought around 20 or so different colors :)

Right now, I'm going to show some of my Greens!! :)

Keep Reading to see them!

Woot! ADOPT A POLISH? I think YES!

For immediate release:

WORLD’S FIRST NAIL POLISH ADOPTION AGENCY: PARENTS NEEDED announces the world’s first adoption drive for in need nail polish, available for U.S. and Canadian applicants.

Every day, thousands of nail polishes are abandoned or abused. They are not sticky or old, they are fine new polishes, stuck on a shelf because they are forgotten or out of season. All they desire is to be used, and maybe taken for a night on the town in return.

“We have so many polishes who need a good family to take them in” said executive director Nikki Smith. “All it takes is filling out an application form describing how you can provide a better life for one of our in need nail polishes. We select the best application and take care of all the expenses, delivering your newly adopted polish directly to your door.”

One current nail polish, Charleston, held back tears well describing his life, “I spent two years of my life stacked in a dark room crammed together with thousands of others just like me, hundreds pressing down on my shoulders at any given time. I’m a shimmer and I have never seen sunlight in my life. Oh and don’t get me started on CND Shellac, I just can’t keep going as long, why would any women want me” he continued.

Please don’t let the agony go on any longer than it has to. The first round of adoptions closes December 31st. Apply to Adopt a Polish at

About Adopt a Polish is a not-for-profit organization funded by the people at Nail Polish Canada. We are grateful they’ve spent the time and money to set us up, but we know they only did it to look like charitable people. They are jerks! All they care about is selling you things. This entire organization was set-up by them to manipulate you.

Don’t worry about us being influenced by them, we cash their cheque, move on with our lives, and get back to saving lives. We would never compromise out ethics by telling you to shop now at and take advantage of free shipping over $29.

Hmmm, when I saw this video, I couldn't help but smile!!! :) SOOOO, I decided to try and do this one next!

Here are my cookie monster nails! :)

 Cookie Monster and his Cookies :)

 I tried to do a close-up, but it's a little blurry AND you can see all the not so cute thingies in my cuticles :P

Nom nom nom nom!!! ME LIKES COOKIES!

Today at work, I'm pretty sure every single person got a NOM NOM NOM in their face as I was showing them off :) I'm normally not that proud of nails BUT it was the first time I did any "dotting" and the first time I did any freehand kind of stuff so i couldn't help but to show it off :)

Hope you like it!

I love geometry too!!

Too bad mine can't come off as good as the one at Nailside! :(

I just went through all the posts in her blog, and I must admit I'm in absolute awe of how amazingly creative she is, AND how perfect her manis come out!

The post that caught my eye (and heart, I must admit!!) was the I <3 Geometry one! It looks so cute and elegant!! So I decided to give it a spin and try it out. Of course, only after I was done, I realized hers look amazing because there's a certain formula for how she put the tape.. DUH :p

Anyways, here's her amaziiing mani:

beautiful, right?

And here's my attempt!!

So after this mani, here are some questions for anyone reading that knows more about this than me...

1- What kind of scissors do you use to cut the tape? My tape kept getting stuck, and to cut the thin strips ended up being SO hard! Anyone else has that problem when doing tape manis?

2- How do you do to cut the tapes all in the same size? haha. Sounds silly but mine kept coming off all different sizes! *sigh*

Anyways, gotta go to work, and show off my not-perfect-but-still-kinda-cool mani! :)

Have a great day everyone!

Some girls are born to be girly...

...And some are NOT.

I'm the latter unfortunately. All my life, I've tried to be like the popular girls, yet no matter what I did, the things that looked AMAZING on them, looked horrible on me. It makes me wonder, WHY? I mean, I know about genes and all  that, but it's almost like something else. I'm not talking about a physical characteristic that's inherited from your mom or dad... I'm talking about how some girls KNOW what's "cool" to wear before it even becomes "cool"... Or how when I was in elementary school, everyone had these cool little wheel bags, and I didn't, so the next year I made sure to buy an amazing one, just like the one the popular kids had, and of course, by then it was the absolute lamest thing EVER to have that type of bag...

Why is it that girls like me (I'm assuming there MUST be more girls like me out there, right?!) seem to always be "too late" for everything when it comes to fashion, beauty, girly stuff (...) ? Sometimes I wonder if it's because my mom isn't very girly either.. But I don't think that's it. I mean, other girls with non girly moms seem to be just fine, so it can't be just that... *SIGH* Either way, I'm going on and on about the fact that to me, these things just don't come naturally. They just don't. Some people can do hairdos like it's the easiest thing ever... for me it takes hours and it STILL doesn't look like it's supposed to.. Or my nails? I feel like my hands don't really obey me. I try to make them like I see around the internet but you think they look anything like it? No.

But the funny thing is, I don't stop trying. I keep trying and striving to one day look like these girls I envy so much.. To look "together", for someone to one day look at MY hair, or at MY nails, or at MY clothes, MY makeup, and think "wow, I wish I could do that"... So this is why I made this blog.. I kept trying to find a "nail for dummies" blog, where maybe I could learn more about nails and maybe tricks to help me... (Nails are my current absolute obsession. I made an ebay account JUST to buy a bunch of polishes!!!! Call me crazy, I know I am!) and when I couldn't find it, I figured there might be someone, maybe one person out there that might enjoy my rambling, and my pointless attempts into entering the girly world, even if they're failed!

This won't be just about nails though, because even though nails ARE my current obsession (and they will be here VERY constantly, I hope!), I think sometimes I might want to try make up, hair and maybe even fashion (EEEKK!) stuff also :)

I'll try posting tomorrow, maybe some nails pictures! I just did a mani today, based on the Nailside blog... BUT of course it didn't look exactly like I wanted lol :)
