Y’all. I’m tired. I’m fighting the urge to curl up on the sofa for the rest of the day. As usual, I didn’t fall asleep until close to 5am. That’s fine, it’s whatever. I needed to be up by 10, because, you see, while Mark was gone last week, I impulse ordered 6 bottles of wine with unicorns on them. It was a moment of weakness. I regret nothing. However, an adulty adult has to sigh for the package, and the delivery window was 10-2 today. 5 minutes before my alarm for 9:20 goes off, I hear banging on the door downstairs. Maintenance. You know why? Our light fixture flipped out and starting blowing bulbs within just a few minutes of them being on. I put on the order that we’re okay with them walking in if nobody answers. Dudebro comes in at 9:15 in the friggen morning and just starts SCREAMING to get someone downstairs. Repeatedly. THAT’S COOL.

Hobie, one of the roommates, went downstairs to have the dude hakuna his tatas because I was searching for clothes to make myself look decent, and figured he may as well get ready for work. As he went to leave, he noticed that someone threw a big ass rock at his windshield. Funny that it’s just a few weeks after my window was broken in the same way. So now I’m up, waiting for UPS, eating cocoa crispies and trying to not fall asleep. May as well get a post up, right? At least I’ve got some gorgeous neons to share! They’ll for sure brighten up anybody’s day.

Okay, okay. Enough babbling. I’ve got the 3rd trio from the JulieG Spring polish line from Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics. Dang, that’s a mouthful.

Happy Tuesday, folks! I’m so so so so so behind on editing. Like. I should probably be working on that, but I’ve got so many posts this week, that I ought to at least get one up, right? I was hanging out with my boyfriend earlier at the LAN Center that he works at, and uploaded about 600 photos. Mind you, this is before editing. I save all of the originals just in case, and then narrow them down, and edit them from there. I’m excited, though. This week means that you guys are going to see a TON of gorgeous polishes, from indies and mainstream alike.

I’ve got a few more polishes from Mardi over at The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer for this lovely evening! They’re three holotastic duochromes from her 3rd collection, called the Chosen Collection. They’re gorgeous, and I love that Mardi incorporated suggestions from the members from her fan group on facebook. Small things like that make me absolutely adore her!

“Each of the polishes in this collection were voted on by members of The Howling Boutique’s Wolf Pack group on Facebook. A total of thirty-six colors were narrowed down to twelve via member voting, and from there I picked my favorite seven to make up the final collection. Wolf Pack members then commented with color names and I chose three per polish, before the Pack then voted to choose the ‘winning’ suggestion. Hence the collection’s theme and name (The Chosen).”

Happy Monday loves! I’m sorry for the absence, I kinda took the last few days to relax and sloth it up while the boyfriend was away for work. Many tub journeys were had, I can tell y’all that. But he’s back, and my heart is full. Ready to get back into our normal routine, y’know? I’m back to start the week off with some gorgeous summery, springy, pastely neons!

A few weeks ago, I shared the first Spring trio from JulieG, so now we’ll go ahead and take a look at the second one. These colors are actually quite friggen pretty. I’m a broken record, I know, but cremes aren’t my thing. Usually. These are slowly helping to change my mind (well, these and our beloved indies).

MY DUDES! It’s Wednesday. AND I’M WORKING LIKE WHAT EVEN IS. Ugh. Boyfriend had to go to NJ for work through the end of the week, so instead of being mopey (don’t judge, I don’t like being alone in the house), I picked up some hours. And by pick up, I mean I traded so I should have the day off the day he comes back. Or something. I forsee plenty of naps and bubble baths over the next few days.

Speaking of a bubble bath. He told me last night to have a “nice tub journey”…

???

I cackled. Hard. Bless his sweet heart.

So uh. Wanna see some pretty polish inspired by a kickass human and awesome music?

Purchased by me.

Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I’ve shared something I purchased, huh? Even better, this is a new-to-me brand! I had the chance to pick out some KBShimmers last year when I won Naked Without Polish‘s giveaway, but honestly hadn’t worn them yet between moves and swatch fests (no complaints, please don’t get me wrong!). I continued buying all things pretty because hot damn, y’all know I love me some pretty polishes, and I clearly have no self-restraint. They’ve got their very own shelf in one of my helmers and I make sure they’re tucked in properly each night before bed. I’m a good polish hoarder like that.

Annnnnnnd moving on…

When the Nauti by Nature collection came out, I snagged the 6 holos so damn fast that my bank account didn’t know what hit it. They’re just so pretty, and honestly unique. Holographic polishes are still my favorite, and I’ll keep buying them, even if I may have dupes, but these. These are such rich and vibrant shades, I couldn’t resist. I didn’t have these exact colors, sooooo they came home with me. It’s bad for my wallet, living in the same town as KBShimmer. Seriously. I’m glad I have my car up here now. I can sneak to pick up an online order without my boyfriend having to take me. IT. IS. GLORIOUS.

Yeah. It’s May and I’m getting ready to show you October’s mystery polish. That’s how far behind I am on these Baroness X Monthly Mythical Mystery posts. I mean, at least y’all don’t have to worry about me spoiling shit, right? Right.

This is another one that I had swatched and ready to go before the move, as you can probably tell by my longer nails. Man, I need to figure out how to get my setup back like it was at the other house. It’s like something threw off my groove. My nails keep breaking, my lighting is meeeeeh. That’s some feng shui f***ery right there.

Hey loves! It’s Friday and the sun is finally shining and all is good here in Narnialand. Well, I kinda want the rain back, but at least it’s nice and cool outside. I hope alllllll y’all lovely folks are enjoying your day! I’ve got a few of the new pastel stamping polishes to share with you guys from the lovely Nadia, aka the goddess behind Moonflower Polish. I’ve played with them nonstop since they came in the post, and I’m in love. I’ll definitely be snagging the full set at some point!

Hey babes! I hope y’all have had a wonderful week so far! It’s been a blur here. It’s been raining nonstop (thanks, universe, for the endless torrential downpour when my window is still out in my car. APPRECIATE IT) and it’s the perfect cuddle up weather. That being said, that hasn’t happened. At. All. Boyfriend and I got up early yesterday after maybe two hours of sleep to go pick up a car from his dad’s, a new(to him) RX-8 and then ran around doing laundry IN THE RAIN. I don’t even care, though. Seeing the smile on my boyfriend’s face is so worth it. He had an older model that needed a bit of work, but his dad found this awesome one for him and he’s in love with it. Makes my heart happy.

Annnnnnnyyywho! Today is the 4th! As in MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU! And I’ve got a special science-themed lacquer by Night Owl Lacquer to share with you guys. Now, it’s not a Star Wars polish, but I couldn’t resist waiting to share this on this magnificent day. The Polish Pickup is back this month with a science theme, and man. The creations from each maker are all amazing. If you’re unsure of what the Polish Pickup is, be sure to check out my post from last month on it here.

Afternoon, loves! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend and that if you made it to Polish Con in New York, you had an amazing time! For this lazy Sunday, I’ve got a new-to-me nail polish brand to share AND they were at PC yesterday. Man. I’m so bummed I didn’t get to go, but I’ll be at the Chicago one in September for sure and I hope to see alllll y’all then!

This is way late. Because I’m lazy. I’m glad I didn’t have deadlines this week. I woulda let WAY TOO MANY folks down. I haven’t felt inspired or really anything that makes me want to paint my nails over the last two weeks, but Starbucks totally changed that for me one day last week! Now, I’m not super into the unicorn craze, but this drink was too damn pretty to pass up for arting.
