Zoya Summer 2018 Sunshine Collection Swatches & Reviews: Part II

*press samples*


Hi guys! I ended up not doing much with my parents this weekend. We ate a lot and binged some shows on Netflix. We finished the show Staircase and it was so weird because I knew nothing about the case yet I live about 20 minutes from Durham now. The whole thing went down back in 2001, but the case wasn't fully "settled" until 2017. If you haven't seen it, I recommend it. Tonight I have polishes 5-8 to show you from the Zoya Sunshine Collection. These are very pink and red heavy, so I hope you're a fan of those. Follow me for a closer look...

Zoya Summer 2018 Sunshine Collection Swatches & Reviews: Part I

*press samples*


Hi guys! Zoya collections tend to be large, so I thought I'd break this up into a couple parts. I know when I look at posts with too many photos I start to zone out a little bit...maybe that's just me. The Sunshine Collection recently debuted on their website, and it features 12 shades you'll be wearing on vacation this summer. Most of these are cremes, but there's a sprinkling of shimmers throughout. I'll be going on vacation for a week in July, and my husband and I are still trying to decide where to go. Any suggestions? Go ahead and hit that button to see more.

Painted Polish 2018 Mother's Day Trio Swatches and Reviews: Radiant & Rosy and Sweet & Serene


Hi guys! My parents are in town! It's been awhile since I've seen them, so we're basically celebrating Mother's Day, Father's Day, and my mom's birthday all this weekend. It's always a good weekend when family is in town. Only one of the polishes I'm showing you tonight is still available. Both were on sale for $5 as a Mother's Day special which was a great deal. Radiant & Rosy is no longer $5, but it's still available to buy. Shall we get a closer look at these crazy holos?

Painted Polish Hella Handmade Creations (HHC) Swatches and Review: Merci




Painted Polish Merci (3 coats)

Hi guys! Long time, no blog. I've been really busy with work lately and just haven't had the time to post anything. Tonight is Monday night, which means The Bachelorette is on. No shame, I watch it with my husband every week. I'm interested to see how Becca does this season. Unfortunately the polish I have to show tonight is no longer available, but I definitely recommend you stop by their website to see some other beautiful shades. Merci is a color from Painted Polish for Hella Handmade Creations (HHC) that I was able to snag in an overpour. 

Merci is a blackened base with lots of bronze flakes and shimmer with a sprinkling of holo glitter. The bronze really lightens it up, and really makes this one stand out. I used 3 thin coats for my photos, but you may be able to get away with 2 with heavier coats. It dried with minimal texture, mostly due to the holo glitters. Removal was fairly painless, even with the flakes and glitter. 

Although this one is no longer available, there are lots of other beauties on Lexi's website. Head on over to the Painted Polish webpageInstagram, or Facebook pages for more information.

Noodles Nail Polish June 2018 Polish Pickup: Purple Dragon

*press sample*


Hi guys! I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far. It's Memorial Day weekend, so I'd like to thank all the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. Tonight I have a new color from Noodles Nail Polish for the June Polish Pickup. This month's theme is video games, and I've been playing since the Atari days. If you haven't heard about Polish Pickup, let me give you a quick recap. First, definitely join the Polish Pickup Facebook Group. You don't necessarily need to actively participate in the group, but it will give you a look into the polishes coming that month. Do you hate it when a new indie box comes out with multiple brands and you only really love one of the colors? What do you do then? Destash the ones you don't want? Just suck it up and buy it and keep them all because you're too lazy to destash? Well, there's now a group and website called Polish Pickup that will open for suggestions for box themes for the upcoming month. Everyone votes, and the winner becomes the theme for a future box. Any indie brand can participate and has their own specific inspiration picture and polish for that month. All you need to do is go to the Polish Pickup site during the pre-order window (the first Friday-Monday of the month) to make all of your purchases of these exclusive polishes. There's no need to pay for multiple shipping charges; since this is a pre-order, all polishes get sent to Polish Pickup and they send you the polishes you ordered. Yup, it's that simple. Oh, and shipping is a flat-rate of $3 to the US (more for Canada and international). Let's get a closer look at this month's offering.

Color Infinity April 2018 Birds of Paradise Collection Swatches & Reviews: Part II


Hi guys! Happy hump day! I've had a really busy week at work, so I'm a bit tired. Tonight I have the rest of the Color Infinity Birds of Paradise collection to show you tonight. Don't forget, the overpours for the set will be released this Friday, May 25th. It just so happens to be the same day the Neon Crayons collection will be available so check out their website. Let's get a better look at these.

Color Infinity April 2018 Birds of Paradise Collection Swatches & Reviews: Part I


Hi guys! Honestly, I was feeling a bit burnt out and uninspired last week. Instead of giving you some lackluster work, I decided to take a little time off for some TLC. Tonight I have a new brand on the blog, and Color Infinity has been on my radar since their debut at the end of 2017. Their April collection was inspired by birds of paradise, and I knew I was buying the collection. It's a 5-piece collection with a variety of colors and finishes. Their bottles are 12 mL, but I think they used to be smaller. There is a new collection released each month with a pre-order, and if there are any overpours, they are released at the beginning of the next month's release. These colors are currently not available, but make sure to check the website on May 25th for the overpour. Shall we get a closer look?

Polish Pickup April 2018 Swatches and Reviews: Scofflaw Varnish Life On Mars?




Scofflaw Varnish Life On Mars? (2 coats)

Hi guys! My allergies have been an absolute nightmare since Monday. I legit had Kleenex hanging from my nostrils at work because my nose was just running constantly. It was not a good sight (or feeling). I'm finally starting to feel like myself again, so I figured it was about time to be a little productive. Remember a couple weeks ago I had all but one of my April Polish Pickup polishes swatched? Well, I finally have the final polish, and boy is it a doozy. 

If you know anything about Scofflaw Varnish, you know that Finch is a huge David Bowie fan. I have her previous color inspired by him, David Bowie's Bulge (which I also recommend). Since April's theme was space, it was fitting she made another polish inspired by him. Life On Mars? is a reddish orange base with strong blue shimmer and flakes with a scattered holo finish. I love the combination of the red/orange and blue! It's so unexpected, but works so well. I used 2 coats for photos above, and it applied easily. It dried with a tiny bit of texture, but nothing a coat of topcoat won't fix. 

From what I can tell, Life On Mars? will be coming back to the Scofflaw Varnish website in July. You see, Polish Pickup is taking the month of July off, and each brand can sell a returning color on their website. So let's hope this one is coming back! Again, you can learn more about the Polish Pickup on their Facebook page and website with flat-rate shipping of just $3. Next month's theme will be video games, so make sure to stop by the Facebook page to get a preview. What will you be buying?

JReine May 2018 Hella Handmade Creations (HHC) Exclusive: Carnival Nights

*press sample*


Hi guys! I have an extra special weekend edition post for tonight. I never really bought anything from Hella Holo Customs previously, but they recently did a full revamp of their business and it's now called Hella Handmade Creations and it's open to everyone. Previously you could only buy and sell through the Facebook group or you'd get in trouble. I didn't like the hassle it all seemed, but now you get a full week to openly purchase these exclusive polishes with no strings attached. It seems very similar to Polish Pickup in that lots of brands release LE polishes and the polish is sent out about 3-4 weeks after the end of the pre-order. I am super excited to feature a new brand to the blog that has a new color releasing this Monday, May 14th. Jill is the mastermind behind JReine Cosmetics, and she has been delightful to work with. Carnival Nights will be on pre-order between May 14-21 and will retail for $13 for a 0.5 oz (15 ml) bottle (no cap). 




JReine Carnival Nights (2 coats)

Carnival Nights was inspired by a New Orleans Endymion parade photo and boy does it show! This polish has a bit of everything and I love it! It has a blue/green/purple shift depending on the angle, linear holo sparkles, and silver and gold flake finish. The flakes take over in lower light while the holo finish stands out in sunlight or bright light. The formula was perfect in just 2 coats, and it dried with no texture. 

Carnival Nights is one of those polishes that's a must have. It stands out and I received several compliments at work. JReine has a wide variety of other polishes and finishes in her Etsy shop, so make sure to check those out, too! This one will be available this Monday through Monday, May 21st. You can find out more about JReine on their website, Instagram page, Facebook, or Facebook Fan Group

Pepper Pot Polish Wild Planet Collection Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*


Hi guys! You know I'm such a slacker, so I know you're surprised I'm blogging 2 days in a row. I just couldn't wait any longer to show you a brand new collection from Pepper Pot Polish inspired by the totally awesome band, the B-52s. I was born in the 80s, and went to high school during the late 90s, so you know I'm well-versed in all things B-52s. I can remember dancing to "Love Shack" during Homecoming and thinking I was so cool. This is what Mackenzie has to say about the collection: 

""Wild Planet" is a collection inspired by one of my favorite bands growing up, the B-52s! I wanted a color palette that reflected their silly and eclectic style & is Spring/Summer ready. This collection pairs perfectly with that loud polyester shirt you've had hanging in the closet for the last few decades, and absolutely DEMANDS you drive around the city with your windows rolled down and your music blaring (preferable playing "Rock Lobster").

I think the essence of the B-52s really came through in the 4-piece set she came up with. Before I forget to mention it, my personal favorite song happens to be "Good Stuff."


You know your foot was tapping through the whole thing! Ok, this set is being released at the same time as It's Winston! this Friday, May 11th at noon PST. Twenty percent of all total sales from the store between May 11-May 18 will go toward the Seattle Humane Society, so if you've been waiting to order, please do so for the animals. Shall we get a closer look at these beauties?

Pepper Pot Polish Fundraiser Color: It's Winston! (inspired by @winstonpurrchill)

*press sample*


Hi guys! I spent this past weekend in Chicago for work and I'm happy to be home in my own bed. The blog will be featuring the indie brand Pepper Pot Polish this week, so make sure to stop back to see what Mackenzie has in store for you. Tonight I have a fundraiser polish that was created in partnership with the famous cat Winston Churchill (@winstonpurrchill on Instagram). Mackenzie is a huge cat lover (as am I) and she has graciously offered to donate 20% of all proceeds made in her store between 12pm PST May 11th & 11:59pm PST May 18th to the Seattle Humane Society. It's Winston! will be available as a pre-order during this time, and will not be made again (expect It's Winston! to ship ~2 weeks after the pre-order). If you order the exclusive polish, along with regular store items, all product will be treated like pre-order items and shipped at the later time frame. Shall we get a little more acquainted with It's Winston!?

Polish Pickup April 2018 Swatches and Reviews: Polished for Days Solar Flare and Alter Ego Altarf aka Beta Cancri


Hi guys! I hope the start of the week is off to a bang. I did exactly what I said I'd do this past weekend except I forgot to mention I was heading to Penzey's Spices to buy approximately 1 ton of spices I don't necessarily need. Oops, no regrets. Tonight I have 2 of the 3 April Polish Pickup colors I received last week. Don't worry, I'll have the Scofflaw Nail Polish up as soon as I can. If you haven't heard about Polish Pickup, let me give you a quick recap. First, definitely join the Polish Pickup Facebook Group. You don't necessarily need to actively participate in the group, but it will give you a look into the polishes coming that month. Do you hate it when a new indie box comes out with multiple brands and you only really love one of the colors? What do you do then? Destash the ones you don't want? Just suck it up and buy it and keep them all because you're too lazy to destash? Well, there's now a group and website called Polish Pickup that will open for suggestions for box themes for the upcoming month. Everyone votes, and the winner becomes the theme for a future box. Indie  brands that have been around for at least a year are welcome to apply and each brand has their own specific inspiration picture and polish for that month. All you need to do is go to the Polish Pickup site during the pre-order window (the first Friday-Monday of the month) to make all of your purchases of these exclusive polishes. There's no need to pay for multiple shipping charges; since this is a pre-order, all polishes get sent to Polish Pickup and they send you the polishes you ordered. Yup, it's that simple.

Contrary Polish Playing With Fire Collection Swatches and Reviews: Flames and Sparks


Hi guys! TGIF! It's supposed to be nice this weekend, so my husband and I are planning on getting some plants at this really nice commercial nursery that is open to the public only a handful of weekends. Other than that, I plan on seeing the Avengers (I haven't been spoiled yet) and take a couple naps. What are your plans? Tonight I have 2 polishes from the Contrary Polish Playing With Fire Collection. Carrie is the queen of shimmers, and you guys know how I feel about shimmers. Well, shimmers and flakies.

Lucky 13 Lacquer Majora's Mash-up Swatches & Review: Octarine-a of Time




Lucky 13 Lacquer Octarine-a of Time (3 coats)

Hi guys! I had a really tough day at work. We had a customer call and be extremely rude to 2 employees, so that definitely put a dampener on things. Otherwise this week has been flying by, and I can't wait to go see the new Avenger's movie this weekend. Confession: I have a new favorite topcoat and it's by Lucky 13 Lacquer. It's called Elemental Ward Quick-dry Top Coat and it's 4-Free (it contains Toluene), but it is nothing like the other QDTPs I've tried. I would often get a little bubbling or streaking with the ones I've used previously, but I can usually get away with it on more complex polishes. It's when you start photographing cremes that it starts to get more apparent. Elemental Ward from Lucky 13 is thick, but it never gets unmanageable, even when you have a quarter of it left. It has a glassy finish, almost like a gel topcoat and it doesn't bubble or cause any streaking. It doesn't dry as fast as say Seche Vite, but this is far easier to work with. I learned about Elemental Ward from Polish Pickup, and now I pick one up basically every month it's available. Oh, did I mention that it can be scented?! It's a nice bonus that isn't too "in your face" about it. 

Ok, now I've gone on way too long about Elemental Ward, I want to talk about the polish I bought a few weeks ago. Octarine-a of Time is a jelly duochrome that flashes between violet and green with green/blue/gold flakes. It's apparently a mix of Zelda's Ocarina of Time and Discworld's "octarine." To be honest, I know nothing about Discworld, but Ocarina of Time was my jam! For the life of me, I can't remember if I played in on the Nintendo 64 or the GameCube. Either way, I loved it so much. We have Breath of the Wild, but we haven't finished the main quest. It's just there's so much to do that we always get side-tracked! The polish was a bit sheer, being a jelly, so I ended up using 3 coats for full coverage. You can always use a black creme as a base and layer it on top. This is flakie-heavy, so it dries with a bit of texture. May I recommend a coat of Elemental Ward? 

You can get this now on the Lucky 13 Lacquer website for $12. Oh, and Elemental Ward is only $5. Yup, you heard me right. Go ahead and check them out on their website, Instagram, or Facebook pages.

My Polish Pickup Picks From April 2018: Space



Hi guys! Tonight I'm doing something a little different. I made this little video about my Polish Pickup colors from this month. I don't have any swatches yet, but I went through each color and did a little description and video here. I wasn't planning on putting it on the blog, but I figured there's no reason not to. Oh, and please don't make fun of me for not knowing what scofflaw meant. Make sure to check out the Polish Pickup Pack Facebook Group for more information (May's theme is the 90s and I can't wait!).

Bees Knees Lacquer Swatches & Reviews: Blorange and #whysocatty


Hi guys! TGIF! One polish reviewed this week is just not enough. I don't have any grand plans this weekend, but it's supposed to rain anyway. I think I'm going to try and catch up on some sleep. Tonight I have my final polishes from Bees Knees Lacquer to show you. Actually, I bought one more, but it was Limited Edition for the Fantasmic Flakies Facebook Goup and no longer available. I do my best not to tempt anyone with polishes that are discontinued. 



Bees Knees Lacquer Blorange (3 coats)

Up first is Blorange ($12) which is one of the best names for a polish ever. My husband even has this one on his toes right now (partly due to the name). It's a deep navy base with strong orange shimmer and iridescent flakes in the background. The navy and orange combination is so unexpected and I'm loving it! By this time I was finally getting used to the long brush so I had no issues with the formula or application. I used 3 thin coats for my photos, but you may be able to get away with 2. It dried with no texture as well. Sorry for missing one picture angle; none of the pictures turned out well for some reason. 



Bees Knees Lacquer #whysocatty (3 coats)

We've got another Anon polish I forgot to post with NaCl and Salty Anon a couple weeks ago. #whysocatty ($9) is named after an anonymous post on Acetone Alley stating they didn't like Bees Knees Black Panther set. Because yeah, that was a productive post *eyeroll* The polish is a black base with rainbow flakes. At some angles it shines a bit gold. I went ahead and used 3 coats, but you could likely get away with 2. While I hate that Sarah keeps getting these negative posts, I do love the polishes she puts out in response. I'm so conflicted! 

There you have it! It looks like Blorange is currently out-of-stock, but it should be restocked shortly as far as I know. Make sure to check out Bees Knees Lacquer in this month's Polish Pickup as well. For more information, make sure to stop by the Bees Knees websiteInstagram, or Facebook Group

Bees Knees Lacquer The Deadra Collection Swatches and Review: Nocturnal




Bees Knees Lacquer Nocturnal (3 coats)

Hi guys! I was in Atlanta working all weekend, and I'm still recovering. It's about a 6-7 hr drive from my house, and of course it decided to pour down rain on our way back on Sunday. I spent my birthday driving to Atlanta, and then had to set up some equipment until 10:30 PM. Yeah. Needless to say, I'm excited to rest up this weekend. Tonight I have another Bees Knees Lacquer polish, this time from the Deadra Collection. 

When I heard about Nocturnal, I immediately thought it was going to be a black base. I was delighted to find that it was a grey crelly base with blue undertones. Maybe the blue comes out from the turquoise shimmer and blue flakes. Add to that a healthy dose of rose gold flakes and you've got Nocturnal. This was the first polish I put in my cart, and I'm sure you're not surprised. I used 3 thin coats for the photos, and as I mentioned last week, I had a little bit of trouble applying these with the long brush in the bottle. Once I finally caught on, I had no issues. It dried with a little bit of texture, but a thick topcoat smooths everything out. 

This is a really unique color, and I'm becoming a big fan of Bees Knees Lacquer! This one is still available for $12, but I bought it with a discount code found in their Facebook Group. For more information, make sure to stop by the Bees Knees websiteInstagram, or Facebook Group

Noodles Nail Polish Spring 2018 Collection Swatches & Reviews

*press samples*


Hi guys! Tomorrow is my birthday, so I don't plan on doing any blogging. I do, however, have to work all weekend which sort of ruins any plans of fun shenanigans. On the bright side, I do have an impressive spring collection to show you from Noodles Nail Polish. In case you don't remember my thoughts for Natalie's winter collection, let's recap. It was the best. No, seriously, hear me out. She was able to have a cohesive set with polishes that were all very different. It sort of sounds like something Tim Gunn would say on Project Runway, right? But if you think about it, that's sort of what every indie brand has to do constantly. This 6-piece set is releasing this Saturday, April 14th, at 5 PM EST on the Noodles Nail Polish website. Shall we see if Natalie has outdone herself? (*spoiler* she does)

Bees Knees Lacquer Anon Polish Swatches and Reviews: NaCl and Salty Anon


Hi guys! It's another busy week at work, and it just so happens to be my birthday week. Let's not talk about how old I'm turning. On the bright side, I still feel 25! Later this week I'll be showing you Noodles Nail Polish spring offerings, so check back soon. Remember how much I loved their winter collection? Well, I think I love this one even more. Tonight I have a newish brand that has insanely popular, especially after a couple critical anonymous posts on the Acetone Alley Facebook Group. If you're looking for a light and fuzzy Facebook Group, this one isn't for you. I'm not even immune to the drama as I was on the receiving end of some of the comments once, and it was not fun. When Bees Knees Lacquer was new on the scene, a couple anonymous posts were made, but lo and behold, this criticism actually made many people (including myself) check out this brand. Sarah, the owner, was polite and and up-front, which I think drew many to the brand. Now every time an anonymous poster tries to bring drama to Bees Knees, Sarah releases a new "Anon" polish. Whew, that was a lot of backstory. Shall we see these warlocks?

Quixotic Polish Mystery Bag: Proto OOAK Polish 2 & 3


Hi guys! I know, I'm coming at you on a Saturday! It is ridiculously rainy and cold right now, so my whole family has decided to sit at home and watch movies and the new Trading Spaces. Anyone else watching that tonight? Anyway, I have the other 2 mystery polishes from the Quixotic Polish Mystery Bag to show you tonight. As you can see from the collage, we've got some attractive polishes coming up. Don't forget that Polish Pickup is this weekend, and Mary has another beauty up for grabs.

Quixotic Polish Mystery Trio: Proto OOAK Polish 1



Quixotic Polish Proto OOAK 1 (3 coats)

Hi guys! My family just got in town so this is going to be a quick little post. You all know my love for Mary from Quixotic Polish. Last month I was able to snag a mystery trio which may contain collaboration overpours or other prototype colors. Mary, being the kind soul she is, is even willing to take color/finish requests as much as possible. I like a good mystery, so I didn't even give her any suggestions (and I haven't met one I didn't like, so I felt safe). 

All three polishes I received were Proto OOAK colors, and all three are very different. The first one I have to show is a slightly off-white crelly base with red and black (I think?) holographic microglitter, iridescent flakes, and a strong blue shimmer flash. Wow, this one is so unique. My dad looked over at my photos and said, "Hey, that looks like an Easter egg!" I'm not exactly sure why, but it does remind me bit of an Easter egg. I'd love it if Mary released something like this in the future. The formula was perfect in 3 coats, but it does dry with texture from the glitter. I recommend a thick topcoat to smooth everything out. Removal took a little extra elbow grease, so break out that foil or peel-off basecoat. Don't worry, it's totally worth it! 

The Mystery Bags ($25) are usually available during the first-of-the-month releases, but make sure to check out the Facebook Fan Group for full information. If you haven't done so, come join us in the Quixotic Polish Facebook Fan Group for fun discussion and giveaways. Stop by the Quixotic Polish websiteFacebook page, or Instagram pages to find out more.

Zoya Spring 2018 Thrive Collection Swatches and Reviews Part II

*press samples*


Hi guys! I was meaning to post this all weekend, but then I ended up just not doing it. I had all the photos edited, but I couldn't get myself to write the post. I think we all already know I'm a bad blogger. We finished our taxes this weekend, and went to our friend's wedding reception which was fun (the taxes, not so much). Oh, and Happy Easter if you celebrate! You know we went to the grocery store to get that 50% off candy! Also, from what I hear, Easter baskets today have other gifts besides candy in them. Is this a new trend? Like Halloween, it was purely a candy holiday in my day. Anyway, I know you guys have been patiently waiting for the second half of the Thrive Collection. If you like any of the colors, make sure to sign up for this year's Earth Day Exchange going on now (info here) for 50% off and free shipping with code HEALTHY

Zoya Spring 2018 Thrive Collection Swatches and Reviews Part I

*press samples*


Hi guys! I just found out the other day that I have this Friday off for Good Friday! Hooray! I had to work a half day last year, so it was a pleasant surprise to get the whole day. Tonight I have the first half of the spring offering from Zoya which features 6 shimmer and creme polishes (technically one is called a topper, but I used it on its own). I just received the summer press release and it's another whopping 12 polish set, so hopefully I'll be able to show those to you soon. It hit 70 degrees here today, so it's sort of fitting to be showing these to you.

Zoya Naked Manicure Hand and Body System (Serum & Cream) Review

*press sample*


Hi guys! I hope you had a good weekend. I did a lot of resting and ran a few errands. Tonight I have reviews of some exciting new products from Zoya. Up until now, only Zoya's sister brand Qtica featured products for the hands and body. Zoya just released their Hydrating Hand & Body Serum and Healing Hand & Body Cream aimed at curing those dry hands from all that acetone and dry winter air. The duo can be purchased as as a set in 3 different sizes:

Mini ($21)-2 oz of each
Retail ($23)-2 oz serum with 3 oz cream
Pro ($56)-8 oz of each

or you can purchase the items individually in 2-8 oz bottles. Follow me after the break to see if this set is really worth it.

Mace Polish November 2017 Duo Swatches and Reviews: Crunchy Leaves and Frosty Leaves


Hi guys! I'm still trying to catch up on sleep since I've been home. The weather has been super weird around here as well. Yesterday it snowed, and today it was in the 50s. Apparently there's a chance for snow this weekend, too! How is the weather in your neck of the woods? Tonight I have a duo from Mace Polish to show you. They are no longer on Etsy, so make sure to stop by their BigCartel site. It just so happens that a new 7-piece Disney Collection is releasing tomorrow, so don't forget to check that out. I don't see the duo I'm showing tonight on the website, but there are lots of other flakie polishes that are just as pretty. Shall we settle in for some swatches?
