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!

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.

Hey babes! I hope y’all have had a wonderful week so far! It’s been a blur here. It’s been raining nonstop (thanks, universe, for the endless torrential downpour when my window is still out in my car. APPRECIATE IT) and it’s the perfect cuddle up weather. That being said, that hasn’t happened. At. All. Boyfriend and I got up early yesterday after maybe two hours of sleep to go pick up a car from his dad’s, a new(to him) RX-8 and then ran around doing laundry IN THE RAIN. I don’t even care, though. Seeing the smile on my boyfriend’s face is so worth it. He had an older model that needed a bit of work, but his dad found this awesome one for him and he’s in love with it. Makes my heart happy.

Annnnnnnyyywho! Today is the 4th! As in MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU! And I’ve got a special science-themed lacquer by Night Owl Lacquer to share with you guys. Now, it’s not a Star Wars polish, but I couldn’t resist waiting to share this on this magnificent day. The Polish Pickup is back this month with a science theme, and man. The creations from each maker are all amazing. If you’re unsure of what the Polish Pickup is, be sure to check out my post from last month on it here.

Happy April 4rd! I uh. Words are hard for me. Like, at all times. I had copypasta’d a message to the makers I worked with for the Polish Pickup asking which days they’d be okay with, and in doing that, I forgot to swap out 3rd and 4th properly. I didn’t realize it until after I’d sent Allison the message. Bless her heart. She deals with my frazzled self SO well!

Okay, so I’m back again, but super early because my dumbass decided to pick up a 4:30am shift. Like. Y’all, that’s normally my bedtime. Mistakes were so so so so so made. But! At least I’ve got pretty things to share to help keep me awake. Right? Riiiiiiight.

For this glorious Tuesday morning, I’ve got le polish‘s contribution to the April Polish Pickup! If you’d like a bit more info on this project, I’ve got it explained all out in my post from yesterday!

YOU GUYS. It’s already Wednesday, holy balls. And do y’all think I’m even remotely close to being caught up for the week? HELL NAW. And what am I doing instead? Procrastinating and running around on my dang Demon Hunter in World of Warcraft. (To be fair, the double jump and glide makes playing a DH WAY too fun.) Yes, Jenalyn. This is how you quickly work through 35 polishes in one week. You do you, potato.

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!
