RIP GFC...

Ok, so GFC is no more. :o( I was trying to think of ways to be able to know how many followers I have cause I want to have a giveaway once I hit 50 followers! (I even already have the product! We just have to get the numbers up.) I'm doing what I can, and it sucks that I was sick this week, but I'm getting back on track! So, I'm now working on my Hellocotton account to be linked to this. I've already added the button over on the side so PLEASE follow my page that way so I can keep track. The number is 50! Then I've got a package of 2 items (that have already been purchased) that will go to 1 lucky follower. Feedback is always appreciated guys! Share the love! 

Happy Polishing!!

P.S. I just did a spring mani using my new Juleps!!! LOVING MY APRIL MAVEN BOX!!! Will take pics to post tomorrow!! I'm officially in love with all things Julep!

My First Big Win!!!

I know it's late, and I'm tired, but I promised you guys 2 posts. I had to take a breather today and get caught up on my couponing. I hadn't officially gone through my paper in 2 weeks and we have a big shopping day planned for tomorrow so I had to get my binder back in order. On the plus side, I came across several polish coupons I will have to use! Anyway, here is my final post for the day... new mani for me tomorrow, I promise! Might be 2 posts again though cause I think I need to sample my April Julep Maven box. The colors are amazing! Hopefully I'll feel up to it after a long day of running around with a cranky husband and 2 year old. HAHA :o)

Maggie's Corner #2 - CRAZY!!!

Maggie decided she needed a change. She told me she wanted something "CRAAAAAAAAAAAAZZZZZYYYYYYY!!!!" (She said this shaking her head back and forth and her arms waving frantically in the air. I was definitely smiling!) Mind you, does this look like the face of a crazy person?

Hello, everyone! So, I've been sick and haven't had the energy to do much of anything other than take care of Maggie. I'm sorry I haven't done much over the past couple days.

So, please enjoy and let me know what you think!

Giveaway I just came across

I'm sitting here rummaging through the blogosphere, half asleep, waiting for my daughter to finally give in to sleep and watching my guilty pleasure "Make It or Break It". (So happy it's back!) I know, I know, I lead an exciting life, but I have an excuse, I'm sick! *cough cough*

Anyways, I just came across a make up giveaway on a blog. Thought I'd share. Loving her blog so far too! Makeup Addict is having a "you pick" giveaway! It's a good one too! If you win, you'll get your choice of any MAC lipstick or eyeshadow! So excited! Go enter! I haven't yet, because I'm having trouble picking the color shadow I want... fig. 1 or satellite dreams. Help me!!! But go enter! This one ends on the 28th!! 





Happy Polishing!!

Monday Giveaway Rundown!!

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm thinking about having a mini giveaway when I hit 50 followers. I'm sure you guys would have no problem with that! In thinking about that, and me still feeling out of sorts and in no mood to make another video or paint my nails right now, I decided that every Monday, I'll post a list of the giveaways that the blogs I follow are having!

I'm a Spoiled Sinful Cinderella

I wish I could say "Happy Sunday, everyone!", but I can't. I woke up sick and without any energy. SOOOO very thankful, my husband is home and can help with Maggie so I can try to get better as soon and as quickly as possible. As any mom knows, trying to take care of a kid that is not sick is not at all easy when you, yourself, is sick. It's like they know you're sick and their energy triples.

Maggie's Corner #1 - Zoya

For those of you who don't personally know me, I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter named Margaret "Maggie" Grace. She's sassy, opinionated and tries to be very independent. She usually insists on picking out her own clothes and is very creative in that department.

My first Zoyas!

So, Zoya had a "Buy 3 Get 3 Free" sale not too long ago. I got super excited because I've never tried them before. I'm not usually one to spend over $2 on a bottle of polish. I try to use coupons as much as possible to lighten the load on my card. So when I saw this, I figured, this is a deal I can do! Of course, it took me FOR-EV-VER to really figure out what colors I wanted. (They have well over 300 colors on their site, and ALL of them are beautiful!) But these are the lovely ladies I ultimately decided on:


CVS Trip 3/23/12

As I said in my video, I had to take my daughter to the doctor today (just a check up, no worries), so after I told her we could go to CVS (she loves it there and is starting to take after me it seems). I needed cotton balls anyways. So, I always let her pick a few Wet 'n' Wild polishes. The $0.99 ones are perfect for her. The display was pretty bare and there were only 6 colors left, so of course she decides they ALL need to come home with us. I was perfectly ok with that, but then I see a Spoiled color I need. So, my cotton ball trip turned into a mini haul. Here are the lovely ladies that found a home with us today! 


Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow Not Just Nude Review

Ok, ladies, I did things backwards! I used a new product this morning and decided to do a review because I feel in love with it. Now, I made this earlier in the day, but waited because I needed to ask my husband to help me with something, but he couldn't figure it out either. (My MacBook is 5 years behind his so it doesn't do all the fun stuff his does, but he still couldn't fix it.) So, I apologize in advance for the fact that the brands are backwards. :o) I promise I will figure it out and hopefully my videos to come will be better. I'll definitely learn to do it more quickly so the lighting doesn't get so bad so quick. The pictures definitely have more light than the video does.

So, I hopped on the bandwagon...

Hello to the world of blogging! I'm Becky! I've been a nail polish lover for some time now, but never very vocally. So, now, I'm vocalizing it! I LOVE NAIL POLISH!! I love every color! Haven't met a brand I didn't like... YET... haven't met a color that didn't make me feel something. Yes, the colors make me feel something. I embrace each mood that each color puts me in. Why not?! I've tried this blogging thing before, but with baking. Then a tragic accident... our house was struck by lightning and I lost my beloved oven. So, now, I dove in... nails first... into my nail polish again. I'm already driving my husband nuts, but my 2 year old maggie is loving EVERY minute of it! So, please, bare with me as I get back into the swing of things here (I was terrible at it before). I just want to share one of my loves with you, I want to learn tips and tricks from you, maybe teach you a few things and I want to make friends who share the same love. So, enjoy!!


Happy Polishing!!
