Nail Polish Canada – The Great Polish Giveaway of 2014!

Do you like giveaways? I sure do! Let’s be honest, who doesn’t?

Our beloved Nail Polish Canada has put together one of the most awesome giveaways to ever hit the Internet… up to 200 bottles of polish to one person!

Here is NPC’s descrption: “We’ve partnered with Cirque Colors, NCLA & Picture Polish to host the biggest giveaway ever. One winner will take home up to 200 nail polishes from over 10 different brands! The prize starts at zero, then bloggers can each pick a favourite shade to be added to the prize. You can enter on our page. You can also enter once on each blog that adds a shade to the prize.”

So you just know that I went ahead and added a polish! As of this morning, the giveaway is at 97 polishes! Here is what I picked:


I don’t personally own this shade, but it’s so beautiful and I’ve been lemming over it, so this is what I chose :).

You can enter on NPC’s website, and then on each blog who is participating (at least the ones who put together a blog post!)

piCture pOlish: Voodoo


I received Picture Polish Voodoo back in September, from a lovely lady in my birthday swap group on Facebook.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, however you want to look at it), I have so much polish that this is the first time I have tried it!

Voodoo is a redish/brown polish with a golden shimmer in it. The colour is quite nice, and the shimmer is decently strong, as in I can see the shimmer even in my dimly lit living room, where I can’t usually see the details of a polish. The formula was just okay; it was thick, but definitely workable. I find the smell strong, and so did a friend of mine, but I stopped noticing it after a couple of nails.

The pictures below (shown in a couple of different types of lighting to show the differences) show 3 thin coats of polish and 1 coat of HK Girl top coat (my fave!). Please excuse the pictures… I am relatively new to this, and while I can take amazing pictures of other things, I can’t seem to get awesome pictures of my nails! So I did my best 🙂 (Also, my cuticles and cleanup techniques suck! ..working on it!)


Here is a close up picture to show the lovely shimmer within the polish.
