Press samples ahead! 

 

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!

The weather is disgusting. IT’S 96 DEGREES HERE IN NARNIA. THE REAL FEEL? 106. I left the South to ditch the heat and I swear, it just followed me up here. I had a wax package out for delivery, and freaked out trying to make sure Mark grabbed it off the porch before it could melt. Bless his heart. He puts up with my insanity and the barrage of texts day in and day out. He’s such a good egg.

I’m back this afternoon with some more Literary Lacquers goodness! If you missed my post from Monday on some of the returning favorites, you can check that out here. This Friday, the 23rd at noon MST, they’re reopening the shop with a ton of older favorites as well as a new core trio and a special gift with purchase polish. I’ve got the latter two on the blog today, so let’s jump in, yeah?

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!

You guys. We made it through a Monday. And some of us even did it without naps. Shoot, if you took one, though, you still did the thing and I am still proud! Today is the kind of Monday that felt like a weird Thursday with no end in sight. Truly frightening, right? YEAH.

This evening, I’ve got two gorgeous Literary Lacquers to share with you lovely nerds. They’re going to be reopening on June 23rd at 12p MST with 24 returning favorites, 1 group custom, 1 GWP, and 3 new core polishes. I have a few posts set up to share my swatches, but tonight we’ll take a look at 2 of the returning shades! Another one that’s coming back is Long May She Reign, which was on my blog back in October, and I’m going to be heavily judging y’all if you don’t have it already. When the shop opens, it won’t be a restock situation – it’ll stay open and items will be continuously restocked as needed.

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.

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!

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!

Happy Tuesday, folks! I’m so so so so so behind on editing. Like. I should probably be working on that, but I’ve got so many posts this week, that I ought to at least get one up, right? I was hanging out with my boyfriend earlier at the LAN Center that he works at, and uploaded about 600 photos. Mind you, this is before editing. I save all of the originals just in case, and then narrow them down, and edit them from there. I’m excited, though. This week means that you guys are going to see a TON of gorgeous polishes, from indies and mainstream alike.

I’ve got a few more polishes from Mardi over at The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer for this lovely evening! They’re three holotastic duochromes from her 3rd collection, called the Chosen Collection. They’re gorgeous, and I love that Mardi incorporated suggestions from the members from her fan group on facebook. Small things like that make me absolutely adore her!

“Each of the polishes in this collection were voted on by members of The Howling Boutique’s Wolf Pack group on Facebook. A total of thirty-six colors were narrowed down to twelve via member voting, and from there I picked my favorite seven to make up the final collection. Wolf Pack members then commented with color names and I chose three per polish, before the Pack then voted to choose the ‘winning’ suggestion. Hence the collection’s theme and name (The Chosen).”
