Raspberry Rouge Chanel Giveaway!

Hello My loves!

Forgive my absence, Ive been away on vacation to SoCal. I have tons of pictures to post of my nails in a segment Id like to introduce called "My Nails Doing This"which is a showcase of my manicure in action! That will be posted shortly.

Right now I wanted to tell you guys about a giveaway from Raspberry Rouge. The lacquers are by Chanel!! yay! who doesnt love Chanel. Below is more information from her site! Im want Orange Fizz, I can see it now applying like a dream! Come on lacquer lovers and join the fun!



Chanel Giveaway!

To celebrate Raspberry Rouge being a year old and to apologise for being away for quite a large chunk of that year, I thought I'd have a little giveaway. Chanel seemed to be a popular choice last time, so I thought I'd offer something along the same lines. As with last time, I thought it would also be a good idea to let the winner pick their own choice of colour. So, here's what you can win....

A Chanel Nail Colour in the shade of your choice!

If you'd like to enter, please make sure you're following via Google friend Connect, and please leave a comment below telling me which shade you'd choose if you win (you can view the colour choices here). And don't forget to leave an e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.

You can gain an extra entry by posting about the giveaway on your blog, or by tweeting about it. (Please let me know if you do either).

The giveaway is international, so everyone's welcome to enter and the winner will be chosen a month from now on the 23rd of April using

A big thank you to all of you who take the time to read my ramblings, and thank you for sticking around when I was gone.

On the Fly!

Hello my beautiful readers and blog watchers!

So sorry i havent been posting as often as Id like. Im really busy this semester, well busy according to my time management skills. lols. So I must make this blog short. =(

I did a manicure in O.P.I from Nicki Minaj's collection-"FLY". I seriously couldnt wait to put this polish on! i put it on 30 mins before i had to be at work so excuse the messyness.  So my thoughts on this polish is that its a good formula. I dont have this kind of teal-blue polish. It really is such a pretty color! The formula is pretty good. Not too thick or too runny. I did 2 thin coats which made the polish look more sheer than Id like. I was attemtpting to go for the opaque look. From all the other reviews ive read about, 2 coats was what it needed to be opaque. Well ill try it next time!

Base Coat:O.P.I Nail Envy
2 Middle Coat:  C-"FLY"
Top Coat: O.P.I Rapid Dry Top Coat

Love my Smart Water! 

Till next time my dears! I will be participating in Pink Wednesdays this week! Im going to do "Too Hot To Hold 'Em" from the Texas collection and "I Juggle Men" from Femme De Cirque collection. I Juggle men is one of my favorite sparkly's!

 I also just dyed my hair a warm auburn brown by Loreal's Feria. I like putting my nails by my hair feeling like Poison Ivy from Batman and Robin is the manicure!
