Sorry, Babes. This giveaway is for Canadians only.
While reading the comments to this post this came into my head:
WARNING: NOT SAFE FOR WORK!! Well... they only really say "Jizz"... but if someone hears it they might get upset. And Rebecca mentioned the song before I could press "Publish". So, enjoy!

Any suggestions? I've been massaging Vaseline dry skin with vitamins E & A several times through the day, and putting a rich body butter on at night (by Wicked Soaps) and I'm pretty sure all the yummy moisture is washed back down the drain when I wash my hands. I still haven't found "the one" hand cream for me.
I demand suggestions and tips! (politely and with respect ;) )
Oh my GODS... have you guys seen magnetic nail polish! Go to this blog now and look. Sat here like a deer in the headlights staring at this for a good 5 minutes. I have unfortunately added this to my "wishlist"... oh that horrifyingly long list...
Have a great day everyone! I'll post pics when my hands are acceptable to my non-perfect standards.

This is probably one of the best giveaway idea's I have seen yet. You receive entries based on your donations, and you don't even have to be a follower of her blog. This is purely for the doggies.

I avoid anything made by Johnson & Johnson. Everything.
I avoid Febreeze - they test on Animals, so instead I use Airwick.
I look at every bottle of any cleaner and beauty product for the little bunny logo and if it's not there, I try and find a bottle that does.

I was holding back doing a post like this but... here I go.
I'm looking to swap with someone who has access to Collistar - Viola Glitter.
I just saw it on Laquerized's blog and I just about died.
I still need Nfu-Oh flakies too.
If anyone has access to this, please email me! I'd like to set up a swap.

"Polish your spring look with new Joe Fresh™ nail colours? Find the whole collection of 27 shades in stores next week. Great shades for only $4 each."
Yep, for those Canadians who have the Superstore, you are familiar with Joe Fresh. A brand of neat (most of the time) clothing that is affordable! Recently Joe Fresh has added a beauty line of affordable cosmetics and neat bath and body products. Sans nail polish. I just got an email that Joe Fresh is adding nail polish to their stock! I didn't see it on their site *yet* but I have the photo to prove it.
You know I'll be grabbing these and swatching them here and there. I'm not rich, quite the opposite. I'm usually dirt poor all the time wondering WTF my hubby and I are going to eat.
BUT... I'll grab some every time I go to the grocery store. I'll take lots of pics and notes when I see the displays soo..... I'll be interested in SWAPS! Or... should you just want me to buy them for you, I'll do that too. I'd be pleased to help! NEW NAIL POLISH!!
P.S. You might wonder why I buy nail polish when we are kinda poor. I'm addicted and it's my only creative outlit right now. Just little by little... no mega hauls. :s

I'm in a bit of a funk lately, most likely because it's around time for Mother Nature to give me her monthly gift. *eye roll* My skin is driving me crazy, my nails are peeling and super short because they seem to be effected by the weather and my constant hand washing. I don't even know what to put on my nails so they have been naked for the past couple of days.
I'm also frustrated with the stupid mail system. I know I have packages floating around somewhere and I want to know where they are and why they are taking so long! My main concern is CUSTOMS! Did they take my shinies away?! Not to mention that Friday and Monday where holidays so I bet that would have an effect on them.... but I want them nooowwwww!! *whine* I've been waiting on my Konad package from OC Nail Art for over a month (including PayPal echeck clearance) so I'm waiting on Kathleen's reply to see what is goin' on with that. Shame it's the french nail kit, my nails are stubs and I couldn't pull off a french right now if my life depended on it.
Arie!! I saw the lovely award you nominated me for! I'll get to that in a few days, I promise.
Oh... The husband and I finally saw Alice in Wonderland last night. What a neat movie! Did any of you see it?

This is "One Night Stand". It is a pink pastel with a light pearl shimer.
"Staggette", a creme medium toned red. I like to describe it as a strawberry red. It was really hard to capture it, it is showing up a little more orange than it is in red life.
All of these polishes formulas were watery. The most difficult one I think was One Night Stand. It took about 5 coats to get it as even as possible. The thin brush on all of the bottles made the thin formula really difficult to handle. I'm used to the pro-wide brushes a lot of polishes have converted to. I think if they had a wider brush, it would have been easier to handle the formula.
Staggette was the easiest to handle. It evened out in about three coats, which is great for a thinner formula polish. Romp was in the middle. It covered better, but was still a little on the difficult side.
[These products were sent to me by Cheeky Monkey for review.]
