Halleloo, we made it through a work week, my friends. All that is standing between me and freedom is a shift tomorrow night. And then you know what? I’m off until Thursday, hell. the. frig. yes. We’re going to Cedar Point in Ohio on Monday and I’m kinda jazzed. It’s a tiny break away from the house and my desk and I cannot wait. Now I just need to get my butt to the store for sunscreen and some capris (and maybe a fanny back because I mean really, who can actually carry a phone and glucose tabs while on a roller coaster? Don’t judge. You know it’s a good idea.) Until then, though, I’m going to continue to work on swatches and nail art and all the things because I feel as if I have a duty to share all that is good in the lacquered world with y’all.

This evening, I’ve got 4 of the shimmery metallic stamping shades from Moonflower Polish‘s La Isla del Encanto summer collection to share. I’m going to go ahead and include Nadia’s description of the collection because it’s pretty special, and you’ll understand the names of the polishes a bit more that way. There’s also a discount code for my readers at the end of the post, so keep reading!

HEY YOU GUUUUUUUYS! I have spacey shifty goodness to share tonight! This is going to be super photo heavy, so we’re going to jump right into it, kay? Kay.

Demi, the Baroness herself, created a new collection inspired by Interstellar, and it’s absolutely incredible. The collection took took all sorts of cues from the movie, including the idea of shifting space-time, black holes, the 4th dimension and other small details. It’s neato, y’all.

Good evening, my little nerdlings! Today is my day off and I’ve been a complete bum. Mark had to go out of town for work again (just till tomorrow, thank goodness), so I curled my lazy ass up in bed and went back to sleep. Got up to get some yummy Chinese food, get this post up, and then I’m debating curling back up after a lovely tub journey. I’ve never really been one to just lounge around and relax. I’ve never been good at it, but man. This is nice.

This weekend starts June’s Polish Pickup launch for the month and I’m super excited because there’s some super gorgeous polishes that’ll be available. If you’re not familiar with the idea, it’s pretty neat! Each month, folks get the chance to vote on themes and then makers will create gorgeous polishes based on the chosen theme. From there, the weekend that they go live, you can pick and choose which polishes you’d like to purchase. Shipping is a flat $3 to the US and Canada regardless of how many polishes you purchase. Definitely beats buying a box for only one or two polishes and then hoping you can sell the other ones in the box that you didn’t wish to buy. I’ve got full details in an older post here just in case you’d like to learn a bit more!

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.

Happy Wednesday (well, Thursday by the time y’all read this), loves! I’m back with some bright-ass neons to get us through this glorious humpday. The weather is warming up (help me, I’m melting), the pollen is out in full force, and… and I have no idea where I was going with that. IT WARM and I hate it. I love the longer days, don’t get me wrong, and I totally love not wearing a sweater 24/7, but it’s already 70 and I clearly can’t handle the heat. My roommates are going to kill me if I turn on the AC already. So uh. I guess I’ll just distract myself with pretty things to get me through it.

I uh. I’m back with a post that totally could have been done MONTHS ago, but when the move happened, I spaced on sharing some of these Monthly Mythical Mysteries from Baroness X. I’m the kinda gal that will swatch something as soon as I get it, just to have it done. Editing? Hah. That’s another story. These photos have been done since September, probably the week before I wound up breaking my finger as we were moving stuff. The good news, though, is that because these are monthly mysteries, my delayed posting is totally okay with keeping the internets spoiler-free. Right? YEAH!

Hey hey babes! I know, it’s weird. I’m blogging during the day. Like. What even is?! The damn earth snatched an hour from us and now my sleep schedule is even more wonky than before. I didn’t think that was even possible. Oh, and to top that off, it snowed yesterday. Luckily, we’re not getting heavy snow storms like our friends to the North East, but- OH MY GOD IT’S PI DAY! Well, that explains why I’ve seen so many photos of Dean from Supernatural all over Facebook…

Holy mother of squirrel, y’all. I blame day blogging. I feel like a hot mess. Anywho. It’s been a while since I’ve had Baroness X on the blog, hasn’t it? Demi has created a stunning 4 piece collection inspired by names of counter culture publications from the late 60s. If you’re a fan of magical shifty pigments such as Unicorn Pee, you’re going to want to keep reading. Trufax.

Hey y’all, I’m sorry for being so quiet the last few days. Work has been absolutely hellacious and I’ve been fighting the urge to just curl up under my desk and hide for the rest of forever. I’ve been trying to paint my nails to try and uh… paint the anxiety away? But it’s not working. I’m very much so looking forward to my two days off this week, one of which is my wonderful boyfriend’s birthday. Very, very excited. But, that’s not what y’all came to hear, is it?

 

I’ve had the chance to work with an indie stamping brand and I’m so so very excited to share what I’ve created with the lovely It Girl Nail Art‘s new plates. Stamping is something that’s relatively new to me, and I’m still learning new things each day, but I thoroughly enjoy it. There’s definitely a learning curve as some of the images have fine lines, but I’m beyond in love with the nail art that these create. Unf.

Annnd I’m back! We’ve got some nasty winter weather coming in, and I have a feeling we’re about to lose internet again, so I wanted to get this post up before alllllllllll hell breaks loose.

Demetria from Baroness X is back at it with her sass and polish-creation witchcraft to bring us a kickass little set that releases tomorrow. And the theme? Oh my god, it’s magical. She drew inspiration from this last season of South Park. And, well, she knocked it out of their park, and ours.
