I spent the first 6 hours of my day thinking it was Thursday. That’s how well this Tuesday went. My new work schedule is from 4p-2a EST and it works with my sleep schedule, but I’m having such a hard time adjusting to it, I’ve been dragging ass all day. It’s unreal. I did, however, receive a kindle for my birthday (Anna, you’re still in trouble for that) and I spent a good chunk of time looking up creepy books, and I’m SO excited to get back into reading, y’all. SO. SO. EXCITE. I seriously can’t wait to curl up in bed and read tonight. Do y’all have any book suggestions?

Tonight, I want to share with you lovely folks some flakie goodness from a new-to-me brand, Paint it Pretty Polish! These release on Friday the 4th and they’re absolutely delicious. Ready to see them?

ME TOO, THANKS.

Happy Wednesday, my little nerdlings! I just woke up from a nap (yeah, it’s almost 1 am, judge me) after a day of Pokeraiding in the summer heat. I’m sunburned as hell, which means I’m gonna be crispy for my birthday this weekend, but I had so so so much fun! I love that they added the legendary birds into Pokemon GO, because boyfriend and I went around to 5 or 6 different gyms with 15+ people each time trying to take them down. He hasn’t caught anything yet, and I only caught one because RNGesus hates us, but it was honestly so much fun overall that I didn’t care.

I’m back with some amazingly gorgeous Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish lacquers that Kristen specifically created for the Indie Shop this weekend in San Francisco! (of course the one year it’s on my birthday AND back in my home state, I’m on the OTHER SIDE OF THE DAGGUM COUNTRY) But even more, the theme? THE THEME FOR THE SHOW IS MERMAIDS. This. Is. Not. A. Drill.

I’m not sure what to tag this one as. It’s not so much a press sample as a gift, but still. DISCLOSURE. Either way, I’m baaaaaaaaack. I’m on my last day of work before a few days off and man, it’s been a struggle. I’m going to knock out laundry and shipping some packages out tomorrow and then my ass is taking one hella long nap. May go get a few watermelons, too. Yup. That sounds like the perfect time off. Sleep and watermelon and movies. YAAAAASS.

Before the sleepening and the laundering happens, I’ve got a gorgeous grey to share with y’all that’s only available through August 7th. Because I love alllllll of the grey polishes, I created a facebook group, which can be found here. Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer and LA S. (another nail lacquer lover!) also help wrangle in the fanatics. Welllll, we recently held a giveaway and one of the prizes was this incredible grey that Lindsay made as a one of a kind (or… 4OAK since she made all of us admins one as well) for the winner. It was so well-received that Lindsay offered to open it up as the first group custom and that’s what I’m here to share this evening.

Hey babes! As y’all can see, I did not boil to death last night. I mean, I came close, but I survived. My chubby ass was NOT meant for warm weather, ugh. But, such is life. My boyfriend’s momma and step dad are in town for a family funeral, so we took the day for family stuff and then went to dinner. Y’all. I had the most amazing tropical margarita, ever. Pineapple and orange juice and yum. Pair that with a delicious fillet? Oh HELL yes. Was good. But I know you fine folks aren’t here to listen to my daily shenanigans. Nope. It’s polish time!

Remember when I introduced you guys to Necessary Evil Polish a few weeks back? Well, Tee sent me a few more polishes from her debut collection, the Galactic Line, and I’ve had a week or two to play with them. Oh man, these are awesome, too!

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.

Hey y’all! I hope you guys are having a fantastic evening! We just got back from seeing Wonder Woman, and ho lee she it, it was FANTASTIC. I didn’t think I’d like it (because I really only watch horror movies, if any at all), but it was SO well done. It didn’t fit in with the cheesy, over-the-top campy trope that most superhero movies do, and I am very glad. I definitely would like to see it again at some point! Have you guys seen it?

Anywho. This duo that I’ve got to share with y’all tonight, oh my word. I’m so excited. It’s been in the works for a few months now, and wish schedules letting up a bit, my dearest Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer made it happen and ready to go this weekend. You see, in the fan group on facebook, which I help admin, I refer to the folks in there as my little owlets. It caught on and now that’s what I think of them as. The group is small, and just lovely. Well, I found a gif of a widdol baby owlet getting some good pats on the head, and all I went to Lindsay with the idea of a group custom based on it.

Happy Monday, folks! I have recently been informed that it is Memorial Day, and I hope that everyone is having a lovely day resting and taking the time to remember our fallen military folks. I’m scheduled to work today, but that’s totally fine with me. Overtime and the ability to be lazy in my favorite pajama pants along with a very yummy coffee-scented wax melting in my warmer. All in all, not bad!

For this evening’s rambly blog post, I’ve got a new-to-me brand to share with y’all, and I’m super excited. Tee M. from Necessary Evil Polish sent me some of the polishes that she’s got in her shop on Etsy. Her brand is Necessary Evil Polish, and oh man. These are fantastic. I love the idea behind the brand, too. Tee’s motto is that nail polish and lacquer are an accessory that every gal needs, and our quest to own all of the colors becomes an evil obsession (I SO can confirm!), hence the name, Necessary Evil Polish. I love it! And there are cute little skulls on the bottles. Makes my dark little weirdo heart happy. Let’s get into it, yeah? Yeah!

It’s almost Friday, folks. We’re almost there. If you made it through the day without taking a nap, I’m proud of you. And even if you didn’t, I’m still proud. You did the thing. I, personally, failed and took several naps. I’ve been studying up on the Indiana driver’s test because in order to get my license here, I have to retake the test. Y’ALL. IT’S BEEN LIKE 9 YEARS. I DON’T REMEMBER THIS STUFF. There’s some online tests that give questions that are on there. I’ve failed them so many times, it’s comical at this point. That may or may not be what led to naps. Ooops. I think we’re going to try it tomorrow, I’ve held off on getting it transferred over long enough. Now that I’m bored with studying and editing the thousands of photos that I need do, I’m here to show off some pretties!

After a small break thanks to life, Courtney from Posh Paints Nail Lacquer is back with a GOOOORGEOUS shifty collection! It’s made up of three multichrome flakies and three flakie toppers and they’re launching this Sunday, the 28th! I’ll have a bit more info on that toward the end. Let’s get to the pretties, shall we?

Before we get into it, I wanted to let you guys know that I also matted these to pull the colors out, and holy eff, they’re life. I used Glisten & Glow’s matte TC and my bottle now has a scary fill line. Shit’s serious, y’all.

Hey y’all! I hope you’ve had a lovely week so far! I uh… my days are still completely off. So, Monday, I worked until 11pm. I clocked back in yesterday at 5am (by choice, I did the trade) and then out again at 1pm. I tried to nap, and it just didn’t happen. I don’t know. I’m a total sun’s up, I’m up kinda gal, and we have blackout curtains but they didn’t help one bit. I managed to pass out on the sofa later in the evening while watching The Rite AND THEN had to get back up to be at the dentist by 7:30. Like. Why, Jenalyn? Why do you do this shit? </whine> I mean. It was worth it. I had today off, and had the time to sleep a little more AND! I’m getting my daith pierced tomorrow. You guys, I’m so excited. I’ve gone through too much excedrine with no real relief, so I’m hoping this will take some pressure off and allow my head a break from the migraines and headaches. HNNNNNG. Ah, now I’m rambling. Let’s get to the polish, yeah?

The Polish Pickup goes live this Friday at 11am EST, and for my last post on it, I’ve got a gorgeous shimmer from Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer to share!

Y’all. It’s Monday. I think. Probably, right? I changed my shifts all around and my brain can’t brain any of this stuff. But! It’s already April, and that means Spring and bright colors and hella rain. I can dig it. With the new month, comes shiny new things and you guys, I’m completely stoked. The lovely gals behind Fair Maiden Polish are helping to host a new monthly lacquer shop called the Polish Pickup. It’s a neat idea because there are monthly themes where folks like you and I get to vote, and then makers can choose to participate if they want. And even better? Shipping is a flat $3 to the US and Canada. So, with all of the different creations, you can pick which ones you want, and then the gals over at FM will ship them your way after the preorder window.

The theme for April is famous works of art, and all of these makers completely outdid themselves. I’ve got a few to show y’all over the next few days, but first, let’s take a look at Northern Star Polish‘s contribution!
