Pepper Pot Polish The Final Girls Collection Swatches & Reviews: Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome and The Cutie

*purchased with a blogger discount*


Hi guys! Whoa, we got so much snow this weekend! We get a couple snow "storms" a year, but they usually aren't much. I grew up in northwest Ohio, so I am used to loads of snow. But yeah, we got over a foot of snow and ice. You know what that means: snow day! I got a lot done on my extra day off. I almost got caught up on 90 Day Fiancé, worked out a bit, and made a large homemade dinner. How's the weather in your neck of the woods? Tonight I've got a couple shades from Pepper Pot Polish's The Final Girls Collection. The inspiration for this set is super unique and interesting. These were made for Mackenzie's love of horror movies and the heroine/survivor of these movies. If you're a flakie lover, you will love these!

Starlight and Sparkles Polish Mythological Top Coats Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*


Hi guys! It's starting to be that busy time of year at work. People are buying pens and accessories for their friends and family and I have to put in some long hours. Speaking of fountain pens, that's how I was introduced to the maker for tonight's post. It just so happens that Issa from Starlight and Sparkles is a fellow fountain pen enthusiast, so we've become pen pals. She was also kind enough to send along some of her Mythological top coats, and did I mention that they contain unicorn pee (UP) and/or UP-sibling shimmer? Just look at that collage! I'm also happy to mention that she has sample bottles that hold a decent amount of polish! The mini size holds 7.5 mL while a full bottle is the normal 15 mL. Mini bottles can have brush issues, but these were very generously sized and I had no issues with applying them. I cannot hold off any longer, let's get a closer look.

Polish Pickup December 2018 Enchanted Forest: Static Lacquer with Yggdrasil

*press sample*


Hi guys! I know it's been a little quiet around here, but I'll have a few collections up very soon. The December Polish Pickup will be opening up this Friday at 11:00 AM EST, and unfortunately you may need to have some ninja fingers for this round. Since the makers will have a limited amount of time to ship items (due to the holiday season), every item will have a cap this month. Some will have a cap of hundreds, while some, like the one I'm showing tonight, will be very limited. The December inspiration was Enchanted Forest, and Stacy from Static Lacquer was inspired by the immense mythical tree Yggdrasil which connected the nine worlds in Nordic mythology. How cool is that, right?! This one will be available this Friday-Monday with a cap of just 25 bottles for $12 each





Static Lacquer Yggdrasil (3 coats)

Yggdrasil is a light minty green crelly base with pink to green UCC flakes and a strong copper shimmer finish. If you're not huge into flakies (but why aren't you?!), you'll still like Yggdrasil because it's light on them. The copper shimmer really stands out and is more evident in person than in photos (it still stands out in the bottle though). The first coat was a bit sheer, but it built up well in 3 thin coats. It dried with no texture, and was easy to remove as well. 

Again, this has a cap of just 25 bottles, so if you plan on making multiple orders, make sure to get this one early so you don't miss out. To make things easier, make sure you have an account so you can start a wishlist on the website. I have an alarm already set for 10:58 AM EST (hey, a girl needs an extra couple minutes to prepare)! You can learn more about Static Lacquer on their websiteFacebookGroup, and Instagram pages, while you can find more about PPU on their Facebook page and website.
