Good morning! I can’t friggen believe it’s already Monday and the week of Thanksgiving. This whole year has gone by WAY too quickly. We haven’t even gotten groceries for Thursday, and I know Kroger will be a madhouse this close to the holiday. I’m going to see if I can talk Mark into us going late at night to avoid peopling. What are y’all making this year?

Now that we’re just a few days from Thanksgiving, I figured it’d be the perfect time to share a gorgeous Halloween polish from  Nail Hoot!

…wait, Halloween?! Yep. You read that right. My slackin’ butt thought this review went up back around when I went to SoCal and somehow it was overlooked. Not my finest moment BUT! This beauty is sill available, so we’ve got that goin’ for us.

Mernin’! Sleep, yet again, has not happened. Hoping to stay up all day so we can sleep normally tonight… may even go see the new Thor movie! While we wait for that, I figured I’d get a post up and see how many swatches I can knock out before I inevitably fall asleep at my desk. I tried to sip some coffee, but going from using half and half and a little sugar to heavy whipping cream and stevia was an unpleasant shock. CARBS WHY YOU MAKE THINGS SO TASTY?!

Eventually I’ll hush about that stuff. Eventually. I may even make a section here on the blog for any and all progress within our keto journey. Might be kinda neat! What say y’all?

Back to all things nail lacquer, my dudes! Literary Lacquers  brought a bunch of their older shades back for fall, and I have three of them to share this morning. Spoiler alert: I’m absolutely L O V I N G these! They’re all inspired by The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe (in collaboration with xoxoJen), and all sorts of creepy perfect.

Good evening! It’s been an odd day, but not too bad. I’d planned on getting more posts up this morning, but right after my last one, my web host decided to cease all functionality. Neat feature, right? It at least gave me time to read and nap and attempt to find keto-compliant recipes. Who knew there were so many friggen carbs in things?! I’m trying to tell myself this’ll all be worth it in the end, but I have a mighty need for some bread and cereal. The struggle is real, y’all.

I’m here to show you lovely nerds a limited edition collection from Kristen over at Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish – it made its appearance at The Indie Shop back in October. Flakie lovers, this quad is for you!

Good morning! Mark and I are wide awake at 7am for whatever reason, so I’m looking for recipes and playing a little WoW in hopes of getting sleepy. We’re on day 2 of keto – well, day 3. And so far, easy-peasy! I made a low carb chili cheese dog bake for dinner and man, didn’t taste like it any other diet meal I’ve made before. So. Damn. Yummy! We ate around 10 last night and I’m still full. This is nice. I’m kind of really excited to see if the diet helps improve my quality of life. Guess we’ll find out, yeah?

Before I head up to bed, I have another gorgeous Quixotic Polish creation to share with y’all! Mary has started a Color of the Month series, and she’s bringing the fire with this first one. Think you can handle the heat?

Happy Sunday! Or at least I’m pretty sure it’s Sunday… It’s murky and chilly here today, and I’m loving it. Getting ready to head to the eBash since boyface works tonight, and I’m debating whether or not I want to suck it up and wear my not so cute boots or be an idiot and wear my flip flops like I normally do. Being an idiot sounds kinda nice, if we’re being honest. Ignorance is bliss, and toes will be cold. I’ll take it.

Before we head out, though, I’ve got another gorgeous Night Owl Lacquer polish to share with you guys! Lindsay decided that it was time for the second group custom for our Night Owls Just Wanna Get Lacquered Up facebook group and y’alllllllllllll I’m totally swooning over it.

Round two! It’s currently 5am, I’m watching some decent horror flick, I have some cereal and I’m waiting for my camera battery to charge. Because really, who makes sure that it’s fully charged before starting a late-night swatch fest?! I’m super excited, though – looking at some of the photos that I took before it died, they’re SO clear. Not perfect, not even great, but that clarity is just so so awesome to see. I’ve had moments where I panic wondering whether or not the purchase was worth it, and then seeing these, and seeing how much easier it is to take my photos? My heart is so happy.

While that pesky little battery charges, though, I want to share a new collection from my dearest Lindsay over at Night Owl Lacquer! I’d mentioned in the Night Owls Just Wanna Get Lacquered Up facebook group some weeks back about wanting to see some jewel tones for the fall, and she made that come to life. These launch later on this evening, so let’s take a look!

Hello! I hope you’re all doing well this evening! We’re almost to Friday, and I think that’s reason enough to celebrate with an afternoon nap and staying in my pjs all day. Right? I had two helmers delivered yesterday, so I took the time this afternoon to set them up AND NO NAILS WERE HARMED IN THE PROCESS, HALLELOO. I’m going to set them up after this post and then fuss with the new camera. The excitement is real, my dudes.

Speaking of excitement, we’re due for the next round of customs over at the Grey Nail Polish Fanatics group! November’s maker is Stefanie from Supernatural Lacquer, and she totally killed it! After having members of the group vote for their favorite inspo photos, she actually chose a second because it was TOO pretty to not play with as well! So, without further ado, let’s take a look at these greyed-out customs!

Hey y’all! I am currently nodding off at my desk, waiting for UPS to come by with a new tripod and backdrop holder. Normally they’re here right at 10a. It’s like they know that I’m FINALLY sleepy sleepy and decided to go slowly. I’m not gonna complain, they’re saints for bringing packages almost every day, and they’re all super nice. That, and it’s not like I can’t curl up after the package gets here, right?

While I’m waiting, I figured it’d be the perfect time to show some amazeballs stampable holos to you fine folks! It’s been a few months since  Moonflower Polish has been on my blog with their own post, so I’m here to remedy that. LEHGO!

Good morning! I’m up bright and early because as usual, sleep failed. But that’s okay because I’ve got some amazing coffee (ps, check out tayst.com – their medium & magnificent blend is delicious!), X-Files playing (for the 22nd time) in the background, and the hope that my new camera is out for delivery. After last night’s storm, the heat broke again and now it’s nice and cold and I. am. thriving.  I’m entirely too excited for a boring ass Monday.

Before I crash hard for several hours (wow, I say that a lot. the struggle is HELLA real dudes), we’re going to take a look at a gorgeous gemstone collection that Quixotic Polish recently released. They’re even more awesome because she recently changed her logo and it’s perfectly regal for these gorgeous gems!

Hello! I don’t know about you guys, but this time change has me allllll messed up. My inner clock is totally fubar’d (moreso than normal) but I’m totally thriving on the early darkness. I’ve got some homemade stew in the slow cooker, Pumpkin Spice & Apple Donuts wax melting, and my favoritest leggings on. Mark wound up not having to work so we’re just relaxing while it rains cats and dogs outside and I’m friggen loving it.

Jennalyn of  LynBDesigns has a Polish of the Month series, and that’s what we’re here to check out, so I hope you’re all sorts of cozied up and comfy!
