Weekly Giveaway Roundup

I love giveaways. Each week I'll post giveaways that I think are awesome! I'm trying to catch any giveaway that has nail polish & I always post them on the Monday before they close. I figure some publicity towards the end of the entry period is a good idea, so don't worry that I've forgotten yours if I don't post it immediately! On the other hand, I know that I will occasionally miss a giveaway or two. If I miss yours, please know that it was accidental and nothing personal!

More Disney World Nails


I got this cute wristlet for my sister Ashley and decided to use it as inspiration for a second set of Disney vacation inspired nails. I used French Tip Dip Bright White for the base. I haven't been able to get the hang of using the kit but I LOVE this polish! It applies very easily in 2 coats without the typical streaking issues associated with white polishes. Quirius Starry Night, Quirius Caribbean Turquoise & Tic Tac Green for the stripes and Mickeys. Tic Tac Green can be purchased at Medusa's Threads.

I finally got to fulfill a childhood dream of having my picture taken in front of a Disney Castle & I look super happy! I think I must have just tried to put Will in a headlock.

Disney World Nemo Nails


I really wanted to do some nails inspired by my recent vacation but I wasn't quite sure what to do until I saw this post from the incredibly talented Leslie of Nail Polish Art Addiction. I am constantly amazed by her skills and the unique, clever designs she comes up with. Thanks for the idea!

I had the songs from Nemo: The Musical stuck in my head for days. I'm not very skilled with a brush so I just did the clown fish stripes as an accent nail and I love it!

I used American Apparel Poppy (great formula!) as a base and the white polish from my French Tip Dip Kit. I used Tic Tac Black and a skinny nail art brush too.

China Glaze Stellar At Disney World


Wow! What a crazy week I've had. Last Sunday I drove from Tulsa to Brooklyn with a very good friend who is moving to Long Island. We got to go to the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met in Manhattan. It was so amazing that we went through twice! Here are a few of my favorites. Look at the feathers on the one pictured above. Truly spectacular!

Then I flew from New York to Walt Disney World to meet up with Will & his family. Here are my nails with Cinderella's Castle in the Magic Kingdom. China Glaze Stellar is one of my favorite polishes and I knew I wouldn't be able to change my nails for a whole 9 days! This is day number 7 and it still looks great.

Sorry I missed last week's Giveaway Roundup. I'll be posting today's later tonight. I'm so behind on my blog reading since I didn't have my computer for over a week.

Look for some nails coming soon that are inspired by my vacation!

Thanks for reading!
