Evening, loves! Well, by the time you’ll read this, it’ll be afternoon. BUT. Time is irrelevant in the blogisphere. Just sayin’. I’m currently in queued up in LFR in WoW and sipping some sweet pink moscato while Mark plays the Legion Beta behind me. My move up here has been made official. Things are coming together. Life is good, y’all.

So, I found MTK Design through a group on Facebook and I’m beyond glad. Mary, the owner, has been nothing short of amazing. She’s sweet, hilarious, and beyond supportive. She had nothing but kind words each step of the way.

If y’all love holo as much as I do, you need to join Holo-maniacs on Facebook. Seriously. Like. Yesterday. Megan from Mindfully Polished has managed to wrangle up all of the holo hussies of FB and stick them in one group together. It’s glorious. And dangerous for my bank account. I REGRET NOTHING. Since the group started a few months back, she’s been working with several indie makers to have some beautiful customs made for us. HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG.

May’s maker was Anonymous Lacquer  and Mildred friggen knocked it out of the park. This was my first purchase from AL and it certainly won’t be my last. She was tasked with creating a purple holo and oh my. I want to bathe in it. I seriously regret not buying backups.

Ohay y’all! There’s a super neat trio releasing today from 3 fantastic makers and I’ve got some of it to share with you fine folks! The USPS may or may not have eaten the other packages, so swatches for the other two will come later in the week, but for now, I’ve got a STUNNING shimmery creme from Northern Star Polish ready to share. :D (Btw, did y’all miss seeing Kristin on my blog? ME TOO!)

Mmmmmh cupcakes. If they weren’t so damn messy, they’d be my go-to sweet treat. I, however, make messes like a 5 year old child so I’ll just stick to ice cream and call it a day. These polishes, though. They make me want to try baking again… Maybe. I tried to make angel food cupcakes for my boyfriend’s birthday and went through 4 boxes of batter (THEY ALL BURNED) before I gave up and decided that maybe I shouldn’t be baking. Angry tears may have happened.

MOVING ON. Polished for Days has teamed up with Illyrian Polish for a monthly themed box that features a third indie maker. I’d passed up the last few boxes, but as soon as I saw that Cupcake Polish was the featured maker, I had to snag a box. That, and cupcakes. Yes, good. May’s theme was Cupcakes for Dessert!

I can finally share the last (but not least) part of the STUNNING NoSleep collection from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics with y’all! We had a slight mishap with my brush for the bottle, but Emily was right on it and super quick to fix it. I love her so.

I’ve got swatches of Hunter’s Moon and I couldn’t be more excited. As soon as the brush came in, I ran upstairs to get it alllll up in that cap so I could paint my nails. I may or may not have made a mess since the lid had polish in it already. #noragrets

Game. Of. Thrones. My heart. It’s gone. Destroyed. Nothing. He held the damn door.

Now that our hearts have been completely shattered, let’s take a look at some gorgeous happy polish, eh? Celestial Cosmetics, an awesome Aussie maker, recently released their Valyrio Collection and I was able to get my hands on two of the six from Color4Nails so it wouldn’t take a bajillion years for international shipping. Hallaluler, thank goodness for international stockists. Y’all the real MVP.

I don’t know why it took me so long to fall in love with Cupcake Polish. I ordered Berry Good Looking a few months ago because the internet was raving about it, and it was love at first sight. When I first saw the Butterfly Collection on instagram, I knew I had to have it. It’s holo. It’s bright. It’s perfection in tiny glass bottles. It was going to be mine.

It’s been a while since I’ve had PCNP on here, hasn’t it? That needs to change! I’ve got a cute little spring crelly to share with y’all today – Fruit On Top. It’s one of the bajillion polishes that I won in the giveaway that Naked Without Polish hosted and I absolutely adore it!

Kristen from Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish made FoT a few months back and I’d been eyeing it. I’m not one for glitters or crellies, but I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. It reminds me of the pistachio ambrosia salad that my grandma made when I was a child and I’ve now got a serious craving for some ever since I wore the polish. Do y’all remember it? So. Dang. Yummy.

Ah, Ygritte. One of my favorite Game of Thrones characters. This was the moment that I fell in love with them as a couple. They’re just… so… FANTASTIC. Ugh, GoT, why you gotta break my heart?

 

Anywho. Illyrian Polish! A new-to-me brand and so awesome! I found this polish on Instagram a few weeks ago and I had to have it. Mark and I marathon’d Game of Thrones in the few weeks leading up to this season’s premier since I hadn’t seen any of it and now I’m slightly more than a little obsessed. SO GOOD. Now I need to get my hands on the books.
