Press samples ahead!

Hey loves! I’m super backlogged on swatching, so this is going to be quick, but you’re going to love all of it, I promise. Ella Ann Cosmetics, one of my favorite stockists, has decided to close her doors and step back from the polish world. Kristen has done a wonderful job over the last 3 or so years, and I sincerely hope that she has a blast with whatever her next venture is!

As a send off, of sorts, Dave, the octo-overlord from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer, has created a 5 piece tropical collection as a final collab with EAC, and that’s what I’m here to show you tonight! These are 5 tropical jellies with soft holo. They’ll be going up for preorder on June 9th at 9pm EST, so make sure to set your alarms!

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!

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.

STAYCATION. Y’ALL! We’re on day two. Well, three. But I’m trying not to count, it’ll go by way too quickly if I do. So, I’ve got a pineapple margarita in hand, some new music playing, and my dumb ass is attempting a watermarble. Y’all may or may not see that at some point. We’ll have to see how it turns out. I’m just so dang excited to be off work, for more than like a day and a half. I’ve needed this. AND! I haven’t had a headache or migraine since I had the daith piercing done! Shit. Is. Good.

Why not kick off the staycation with some effin’ fabulous neons?  Lindsay over at Night Owl Lacquer created her first full collection of bright colors, and you guys, they’re amazing. I’m not just saying that because I love the hell outta Lindsay. These are honestly some of the best cremes ever AND they’re the perfect washed-out/almost pastel neon shades. Oh, and they DO NOT NEED UNDIES. I’m in love, and I’ve already worn a few of them multiple times. That doesn’t happen often, nope nope nope.

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 babes! I’m sorry I’ve been pretty MIA here and on Instagram. I’ve had a headache/migraine mutation thing that is going on day 7 now, and everything is a struggle, even sleep (though, my insomnia isn’t a shocker, not for anyone, but it’s not helping now). I’ve managed to find dark themes through Chrome for most websites, but unfortunately, I can’t install any of it on my work laptop. Luckily, we have so many dispatchers that it’s been relatively easy to find folks to help take over my shifts, and my boss is super understanding. Ah, but you’re not here to listen to me drone on about my head hurting, are you? Nope. You’re here for the polish. Meeeeee tooooo. So, let’s get to it!

Wait wait wait wait wait. Day blogging? Again? YEAH MY DUDES. I’ve got a lame horror movie playing, a diet coke in hand, some fantastic wax melting, and I’m bundled up since Narnia is now actually WAY too cold, so why not blog it up?

I’ve got a sassy little collection that I know y’all are gonna love. Allison of le polish has created these 4 gorgeous polishes inspired by the TV show Daria. Which, by the way, I totally need to go back and rewatch. It’s been WAY too long since I’ve seen any episodes. I’m pretty sure the show kickstarted my sarcastic sense of humor. I can dig it. If you’d like to see more, just keep reading! I’ve got a ton of photos and gifs to share, and I know y’all are gonna love every bit of it!

Y’all. Brace yourselves. This is going to be a super long post. But before we jump into that, can I just take a moment to whine? 5 nails broke yesterday. My last bra had the underwire come out. My webhost has been undergoing server maintenance off and on for the last 24 hours.  And to top that all off? I’ve slept maybe 3 hours over the last few days thanks to some WICKED heartburn (my prescription had run out and I was too chicken to call for a refill from the doctor. yeah. I’m an adult). I just had the last two days off, and I’m already counting down till Wednesday. Okay. Okay. Whine session over. I’ve got 11 pretties to share with y’all from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, and all of them will be at The Indie Shop tomorrow in Atlanta!

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.

I missed you nerds. Somethin’ fierce. I took a week off because I’ve been so dang tired, but I had no idea what was coming. My whole. friggen. house. is. sick. My boyfriend? He’s effin’ patient zero over here. Hobie, boyfriend’s bro, and I, are all sick as all get out. Boyfriend? HE’S JUST MOSTLY FINE NOW.  Naturally it hits when I’m in the middle of a 6 day work stretch and a huge swatchathon. One more shift and then my ass is staying in bed until I clock in next. Shoooooot, if I even make it that long. If I die between now and then, you fine folks can divvy up my polish hoard between the lot of ya. Sound good? Yup.

OKAY JENALYN BRING IT BACK IN. NAIL. POLISH. YES. GOOD.
