Returning Shades from Literary Lacquers for Oct. 2017

*press samples*

Hi guys! It was yet another manic Monday here. I have family coming into town this week, and it's been far too long since I've seen them! We had a pretty good weekend where we went for a 5 mile hike, cleaned the house, and ran some errands. Tonight I have 3 of the 10 returning shades on sale now from Literary Lacquers. If you love holo finishes, you need to see these polishes! As always, all glitter and creme polishes are $10, while the holos are $12 each.

Literary Lacquers Faulkner Duo 2017: A Rose for Emily and The Best You Have

*press samples*

Hi guys! TGIF! Tonight I have a brand new duo from Literary Lacquers which inspired by William Faulkner's short story, "A Rose for Emily". If you want to read it, you can find it here. Faulkner isn't my favorite author, but I know my MIL did her Master's thesis on his work. The creme from the duo is named for Emily, while the glitter topper, The Best You Have, is named for what Emily asked the shopkeeper for when she was buying the poison. Very dark and appropriate for this time of year. These are available now for $10 each in the Literary Lacquers store

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Summer 2017 Mix Tape: Overdrive Edition: The Future is Coming On

Lollipop Posse Lacquer The Future is Coming On (3 coats)

Hi guys! Have you ever had one of those clumsy nights? I had one of those yesterday evening. I was burning a wax tart in my warmer when I reached over to turn it off before going to sleep. Well, my sleeve knocked the wax over and I tried to catch it before it got everywhere. I proceeded to get hot wax all over my hand, the wall, and the floor. It pretty much came off of the wall and floor, but it took more work than I wanted to do at 11 PM. *sigh* Anyway, remember when I posted about the 2 polishes I bought from the Summer Mix Tape collection from Lollipop Posse Lacquer a few weeks ago? I was so impressed with them I had to buy the other polish I was eyeing with my 20% off code. 

This one is named after one of my favorite songs of the 2000s, Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz. The Future is Coming On is described as a steel grey base with loads of red/green/gold shifting iridescent glitter and shimmer. Maybe it's the glitter, but this looks more greige than steel grey to my eye. Man, these iridescent glitter polishes are on point! I think the only way this polish could be any better is if she added a bit of multichrome flakes to the mix. It's really sheer, but built up to full opacity in 3 coats. The formula was great, but make sure to use thin coats. Removal was a pain, so use a peel-off base coat or the foil method.

The Future is Coming On is still available on their site and it retails for $11. You can find more information about Lollipop Posse Lacquer on their websiteInstagramFacebook, and Facebook Fan Group pages.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Polish Con 2017 Exclusives: Cotton Candy Chaos and Midway Madness

Hi guys! Anyone still watching Dancing with the Stars? My pick is still Frankie Muniz, but he almost went home last night! Can we get Nick Lachey gone? I have nothing against the guy, but he just isn't a good dancer. I had a great weekend just relaxing and enjoying the cooler weather here otherwise. Tonight I have 2 of the 3 Lollipop Posse Lacquer Polish Con exclusives to show you tonight. You  may be asking yourself, "Audrey, you didn't tell me you went to Polish Con!" Well, I didn't. I was lucky enough to go to the Indie Shop in Atlanta earlier this year, but I just can't justify flying to Chicago. That said, LPL has the overstock of exclusives on their website right now. Go ahead and press that Read More button for swatches and my thoughts.

KBShimmer Unicorn Pee Collection Swatches & Reviews: Let's Slang and You Dew You

Hi guys! TGIF! I've had a long week after my recent travels, so I'm planning on resting this weekend. Do you have any special plans? My 10-year wedding anniversary is coming up, so I should start thinking of some things we can do that weekend. Tonight I have 2 of the 4 KBShimmer polishes from the Unicorn Pee collection which features the shifty unicorn pee shimmer. What is that, you ask? Back in the day, Clarins made a special polish (Clarins 230) that was coveted by the nail community. The polish has long been discontinued, but there have been small batches of pigments that have made its way among indie brands. KBShimmer was able to get their hands on a bit of it, so Christy decided to release this 4-piece collection ($12 each) last month. Let's take a closer look at these warlocks.
