Hihi! I’m sorry for the silence all week, it’s been super quiet here over at TGOB thanks to a terrific migraine that started Monday evening. I don’t know what sparked it, but I know that it still hasn’t gone away fully, and I feel 100% useless on all fronts. The best part is that with my migraines, I get super nauseous. I am an emetophobe, to the fullest extent, which means that I’ve been in this constant state of panic over the last 4 days. SO MUCH FUN. I was convinced, last night, that I was going to die, and became a sobbing mess asking Mark to kiss me goodnight. Bless his heart for putting up with me. That man is a saint, seriously.
Before I go back into hiding for a day or two, I’ve got a festive and holotastic duo from Mary over at Quixotic Polish to share with you lovely folks. These two polishes launch in about 9 hours, so let’s get to it!
First up is This Is Your Year! – it’s described as a both linear and scattered silver holographic polish. So first of all, we’re going to have to pretend that my middle finger doesn’t look like the nail is wonky as all get out. Looking at it straight on, it’s fine. Any weird angles and it looks like I can’t file my nail straight. I mean. I can’t. But shhhh.
This Is Your Year is absolutely gorgeous. Because it has both scattered and linear holo, it has a ton of depth and within that depth resides hella rainbows. Do like. My photos show two coats plus top coat. Some folks may need three coats depending on VNL, but I didn’t with how dark mine is. YMMV.
Ring In The True is a true red (meaning it does not lean pink or orange in any way) with both linear and scattered holo. This vampy holo is EVERYTHING. Like. It’s absolute perfection in a tiny glass bottle. I’m super excited, also, because it DOES. NOT. STAIN. My nails are super receptive to staining and reds always seem to get me. That was not the case with this. Goofy flailing occurred. It’s pretty opaque in one coat, but I went back with a second to balance any areas where I went too thin with the first coat. My photos show top coat, as usual.
The Happy New Year Duo launches Friday December 8th at 8am PST (11am real people time, just sayin’.) over at Quixotic‘s website. You can grab them for $11 individually, or $20 for both. Those that purchase the duo today (on the 8th ONLY) will also receive the December Color of the Month for free.

Now if y’all will excuse me, I’m going to take my happy ass back to bed and listen to rain sounds. Thanks for stopping by!
