Hihi! It’s Monday and boy does it feel like it. I’m still feeling all the feels from Game of Thrones and wishing winter would come here. We’re 25 days away from autumn and I’m pining for it something serious. I’m itching for cooler weather and the changing of the leaves. What about y’all?

Luckily, September’s Polish Pickup has a TON of fall goodness! The theme is Fall Foliage & Fun and I’m loving it. There are so many fantastic polishes that’ll be available this weekend. No, that’s an understatement. They’re incredible and I’ve got four of them that I’ll be sharing over the next few days.

First up is from a new-to-me brand, Fanchromatic Nails! I’ve been looking over her shop and I’m super excited because Lynae draws inspiration from all things nerdy and geeky and there’s approximately 42 polishes that need to be in my life ASAP.

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.

Happy eclipse day, loves! Did any of y’all get to see it? We weren’t in the path of totality and a wicked storm came through, but the sky did get super dark. It was super neat to see! Oh, and on top of that, BOYFRIEND IS HOME. My heart is oh, oh so happy. Now just to get through the rest of my shift and convince him to order foods. LITTLE GIRLFRIEND IS HUNGRY.

While we’re waiting on that, I bet y’all would like to see a gorgeous end of summer collection, yeah? Nailed It! Nail Polish created a beautiful 4 piece set that is just lovely!

Hey loves! I’m back with a quick review and photos of a deliciously vampy jelly with glitter. Ain’t that a mouthful? I’ve got music going, a chocolate frosty in hand, and my comfiest pj dress… thing. I managed to get up at 730 this morning … Not sure how that happened, but it did, and laundry was done by noon. Had time to deep condition my hair with Overtone Vibrant Red while soaking before the most kick ass nap ever. Oh! I also made an awesome dinner in my new Instant Pot (thank you again, Anna – for both the IP and dress!) that the nerds all loved. I would totally call today a win.

Tee from Necessary Evil Polish is currently in the UK for a vacation with her tiny human, and I’ve been enjoying all of the photos she’s shared on facebook. She also sent me an awesome postcard which is now hanging up above my desk. She’s a pretty neato human, if I may say so myself!

Tonight, y’all get to see Pirate’s Curse from her Summer California Dreaming Collection – I can’t wait to see what else she’s got for this collex!

It’s almost Friday, y’all. We made it. Mostly. I’m sitting here, waiting for my pizza to cool and listening to the nerds click and type their way through video games and relaxing. Probably going to be a tub journey night. Yup. Mark’s parents just left to go back home but stopped by to hang out for a little. Was super nice, they’re an absolute pleasure to be around! I don’t have anything super interesting to share up here, so let’s get into the polish, yeah?

Connie from Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer is back with the awesome Life’s a Beach trio that is absolutely perfect for summer, and she even opened up the preorder a bit early for y’all!

Good morning, my little owlets! I’ve been awake since 8am and I’m pretty sure the world is ending. I didn’t fall asleep till after 3 , and I’m not entirely sure that I’m fully awake. The only thing that’s keeping me going is my sugar free monster and the promise of a nap in 2 hours. Yup. Times is hard.

But! Aside from the sense of impending doom and sleepiness, I’ve got some more gorgeous Night Owl Lacquers to share! Along with my Little Owlet Duo that I worked with Lindsay to create, she also launched a 4 piece collection that’s absolutely perfect for summer and all beach-goers.

The Beach Life Collection is available now, so let’s take a look at this awesome quad! Oh! And also, I still have that discount code active, so be sure to read till the end for that!

Happy Tuesday! Well, I think it’s Tuesday. Shit, at this point, it’s almost Wednesday. Probably. I worked a partial shift and then napped and now I’m pretty sure it’s 2019. So now I’m watching the Night Shift (y’all, I’m obsessed, send help) and waiting for the boyfriend to get back from a work trip, so let’s take a look at some pretties from Nailed It! Nail Polish!

I had the chance to work with the ever-lovely Tia last year, and I’m beyond jazzed that she reached out to me again for this new collection. She’s a doll, and makes some fantastic nail polish along with some great bath and body products. Speaking of, I need to order some more of those soon. Her cuticle balm is awesome. Actual trufax.

Anywho, her new collection, Tropic Like It’s Hot, launched just last week, and that’s what I want to share with y’all this evening. I’ve been playing with them nonstop. They’re the perfect way to start the summer off!

Okay, this post is about to be one big hot mess featuring some pretty shifty toppers. I have either three or four posts queued, but this is going to be the big one. We’re going to start this week off with a bang! The lovely Issa from Starlight Polish contacted me a few weeks about some upcoming releases and y’all. They’re divine. So let’s get right in!

You guys. I worked a morning shift and I didn’t cry. I did the thing. I did, however, take a nap after stuffing my face full of triscuits and lemonade. Adulting at its finest, right? In other news, I found another creepy thing to watch online. Apparently, this last Fall, Fox aired a series called The Exorcist, and I have just discovered it. My creepy little heart is happy, y’all. I’ve been watching it nonstop all day. While watching, I also had the chance to swatch some pretties, so today is like a total win.

For June’s Polish Pickup, Dave from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer created a GORGEOUS cobalt jelly that I’m excited to share with you guys tonight!

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.
