The Last Pink Wednesday of October

Can you believe it's the end of October already?! Incredible how time flies!

Here is the last Going Pink Wednesday manicure for the month!

Living up to the name: Cats & Nails

It's that time again - kitties take over the blog!
Cats everywhere))
That's Nikolai being cute on top of the blog sale box
I even found a way to get kittens on my nails!

Am I a nudist? (pic heavy!)

I have never been a huge fan of nude polishes, but school, and later work,
put restrictions on what manicure we can have. Over time I accumulated a number of "nudes".
 Today I prepared a quick review of mine.

Please read: This is my disclaimer for this post - I apologize if the state of my cuticles offends some readers. They are going through a difficult transition at the moment. I have stopped cutting and peeling them off (bad habit I know), so with the help of Sally Hansen, Burt's Bees and a lot of patience, they will make a full recovery. Thank you for understanding.

My first time...

Buying indie polish that is! what did you think? Ha-ha!
I know, juvenile humor, but I can't help myself..
I am pleased to welcome Gloss'N'Sparkle polishes to my collection and to the blog.

I ordered 4 "old" style bottles and the colours are spectacular!

Mystery Glitter with Stamping

Yes, this glitter is mysterious.
The bottle is an OPI, but it didn't have a label. 
I asked the IG community for suggestions the other day, but came up empty.
It may even be a fake. Do I care? Hell, no!

Check this baby out!

Four Elements Challenge - Fire

After much thought I decided to take a slightly different approach to this challenge.
I did not want to do a literal representation of the elements, but instead chose a polish for each.

Four Elements Challenge for October

October is usually a month filled with challenges, the most common ones being Halloween and also the Breast Cancer Awareness. As much as these are fun to do (Halloween) and a great cause (BCA), I did not want to have the whole month dedicated to just one theme. I chose to take part in this challenge:

The author of this challenge is Taya from My Little Beauty World and the elements are scheduled as follows:
1. Fire on 4. October
2. Water on 11. October
3. Air on 18. October
4. Earth on 25. October

Keep an eye out for the other girl's designs as well:
Mateja (Purple Glitters)
Nail Crazy
Cat girl
Mateji ustvarjata
Cat (Purple Polish)

I will also be posting my normal NOTD and Where in the World? designs. Thanks for stopping by!

THREE Nail Art Challenge - Day 9 Wavy (Final)

Today's post marks the end of the THREE challenge hosted by Mateji ustvarjata. The theme is 'wavy', so at first I was thinking of ocean/water, but then I came across this picture, which has waves and water in a very different interpretation:
