Hi! Happy Tuesday, folks! Unless it’s not Tuesday… if that’s the case, just tell me to go the hell to sleep. BUT. Just in case it is Tuesday, I’ve got a TON of nerdy lacquers to share tonight!

I don’t know how many of y’all are into tabletop gaming and the like, but I’ve been a huge fan of DnD for a very long while. I haven’t played in years, but Geek and Sundry has helped fill that d20-sized hole in my heart for the last few years with their Critical Role show!

Voice actor Matthew Mercer leads a group of fellow voice actors on epic Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. These familiar voices bring the audience into the full experience of D&D, allowing imaginations to soar as the characters embark on adventures. This is Critical Role!

Watch live on Thursdays at 7PM PT on Twitch or the live enhanced version on Alpha.

Cal over at Dragonsworn Cosmetics has created a gorgeous 10-piece set inspired by our beloved Critters. If we’re being honest, I’m WAY behind on the show. I was putting it on in the background while working, but it was difficult to pay attention to the dice rolls and plot while helping folks, so I stopped. I need to pick it back up, though. They held last week’s episode live off-site at GenCon and I skipped out because hella spoilers. So if you’re behind like me, this post won’t spoil anything for you. There’s one character that I don’t recognize, but it just means one more gorgeous polish in the collection and a teaser for what’s to come.

Now, with this having 10 polishes and my need to include gifs that match, this post is going to be long. And wordy. And babbly. You’ve been warned.

Hi again! I’m back with some more awesome nerdery because why not? I finally have my day off tomorrow so I plan on parking my butt and relaxing to play some World of Warcraft while being wrapped up in approximately 8 layers of clothing because I can’t seem to regulate my body temp with this stupid cold. ANYWHO. NERDY NAIL POLISH, Y’ALL! EEEEEEE!

I’ll admit that since the launch of Legion, I haven’t been playing my mage as often as I was before, but I still thoroughly enjoy blowing things up with Living Bomb (if y’all play Wow, you know exactly what this is and how friggen kick ass it is!) and I managed to finally get my fire artifact hidden weapon skin and I’m SO in love with it! Since I nabbed that, I figured it’d be the perfect time to show y’all the gorgeous polish that Cal over at Dragonsworn Cosmetics made for me to swatch, based on Mages in the World of Warcraft universe!

YOU GUYS. VIDEO GAME-THEMED NAIL POLISH. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. WHAT A KICKASS WAY TO START THE NEW YEAR!?

Pretty & Polished has totally done it again, you guys! This collection, oh my goodness, I love it so. I’ve been impatiently waiting to share these with y’all, and now that it launches tomorrow (1/1), I’m safe to share my photos!

Chelsea reached out to me one morning, while I was at the dentist, asking if I liked video games, and I nearly freaked in the chair. Aside from working and painting my nails, I mostly game. We’re a nerdy household with far too many consoles and computers and it’s wonderful. Gaming is what I grew up on. It’s helped me through some dark times and also kept me sane for many years. It means so much more to me than I can put into words. So… this collection? It has to be a favorite of mine. It represents two things that mean the absolute world to me, and I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I do. Let’s get into it, shall we?

Hayo! I hope y’all have had a wonderful weekend! It’s cold and rainy here, but oh so perfect for staying inside and playing Pokemon Sun! My neato boyfriend grabbed a 3DS for me as an early Christmas present so I could join in on the fun, so I’ve been playing it pretty much nonstop since Friday. Pretty sure I need to work on cleaning. And dishes. And swatches. And laundry. BUT POKEMON. I haven’t played one of these games since… well. Forever ago. Jeeze, I feel old.

BE STILL, MY GEEKY LITTLE HEART.

I recently found Dragonsworn Cosmetics on Instagram and fell in love with Cal’s creations. She’s huge into Warcraft like I am (along with so many other games, y’all go look at her stuff. Seriously.) and loves nail polish and everything beauty. We were meant to be friends. Clearly.

HI CAL WE’RE BESTIES NOW, JUST SO YOU KNOW. <3
