Kooky for Brucci

I recently won a green-themed giveaway and since I had some crazy nail drama today (see below post) I decided to forego the aforementioned promise of nail art to show you one of the “gems” that I won, Brucci’s Black Emerald. Black Emerald is a black jelly based green glass flecked duochrome (green and burgundy but all of the pictures of the burgundy look black- you’d have to see it in person) and I adore it. This polish went on in two coats and satisfied my less than peachy nail mood….

**These are GEL nails, my natural nails will be coming back soon (within a week!)**
I just used two coats of Brucci Black Emerald and one coat of Seche Vite Top Coat here since you don’t need a base coat on gels. For a review of my craptastic experience with gels today, read the below post.
Please remember to enter my You’re A Dead Giveaway before this Friday to try your luck at winning Color Club’s Bewitching Set in time for Halloween! It ends Friday, October 8th at 11:59 PM EDT!!
Kisses! Tara The Terror

A BIG Thank You!!

I was lucky enough to recently win not one, but two!! giveaways and so I just wanted to do a dedicated post to those ladies out there that hooked me up with some seriously loved goodies and to send a BIG thank you along to the kind ladies who gave away such great gifts. PS, don’t mess- I know I used a roll of paper towels in the background- I figured you’d rather see them than Rafik’s feet :-)

I won Kristina’s Green Giveaway over at My Lucid Bubble

This giveaway included some really hard to find green polishes. Included in the giveaway were Essie’s Mint Chintz, Misa’s Embroidered Emerald, Milani Hi- Tech, Orly’s Opal Hope, Brucci’s Black Emerald, Orly’s Walk Down The Aisle, Sally Hansen’s Spring Green, and Wet ‘N’ Wild Fusion. I spent the afternoon playing this a lot of these (hence no nail design or swatches, I was playing- not doing serious business!)

I also won Megan’s Sula Giveaway at Dainty Darling Digits
This giveaway was another wonderful one! It included three of Sula’s Paint and Peel polishes, a Sula Paint in Peel polish/topcoat duo, Sula’s Vanilla Perfume Oil, and (an added surprise!) Sally Hansen’s Perfect Proposal. I didn’t play with these yet (though I’m wearing the perfume!) because I wanted to do special swatches of each color for ya’ll and I didn’t want to waste their peely goodness on a less than perfect mani.
Both Megan and Kristina are wonderful ladies and I’m so lucky not only to have won their giveaways, but more so to have had the opportunity to chat with them and get to know them a teeny bit more than I did before. I already frequent their blogs and you should too! Thanks ladies!
I’ll be doing a neat-o design in the following days- my apologizes for the lack of schnazzy nail art lately- due to the less than perfect health I had recently, I got a bit behind in school and home life (work, cleaning, errands, etc) and so I haven’t had the time to sit down and really focus on a sexy design. I will though, don’t ya’ll worry.
