Hey y’all! I’m currently all up in my feels between watching Fringe and applying for jobs, so I’ve got some calming wax melting and I’m bundled up in my favorite hoodie waiting for the boyfriend to get dinner going. I put out au gratin taters, veggies, and thawed pork chops. Let’s see how much of the puzzle he can put together, haha! In all seriousness, he’s an absolutely fantastic cook, and spoils me with delicious dinners when we have the time. I’m one lucky gal, that’s for sure.

While things outside of my lacquered-life are a bit messy, I know that there’s plenty of polish to help make things better, including the wonderful folks that make it. Lindsay, from Night Owl Lacquer is totally one of them. She sent me an awesome birthday package this week with a card that totally made me tear up. I’m beyond blessed to have her in my life, and I don’t know how I made it 25 years without her friendship.

Aside from the mushy stuff you just read, I’ve got her BEAUTIFUL contribution to the August Polish Pickup: Fierce & Feisty! This one is incredible, and quite possibly my favorite Night Owlet, so keep reading if you’d like to see more of it!

Evenin’ folks! I’m back, a little later than normal, but I think y’all might forgive me after you see this collection. Mark had to work today, naturally, on my day off, which means it became laundry day. eBash is pretty close to the laundromat, so I could walk over to put stuff in the dryer and all that. Not bad. Well, y’know. Aside from it being 98 with a real feel of 109 like wtfevenisworld?! I wound up wasting three dollars worth of quarters because the first dryer I chose wasn’t heating, which meant far too many trips in the heat because, me being me, I didn’t learn the first time to just bring quarters with me. Annoying at best, ugh. BUT! I did win a 4-day ticket badge thingy to GenCon in a few weeks! I’m pretty excited, and glad I took time off work just in case. I need someone to hide my debit card and make sure I have no cash because my ass will come home with a shit ton of d20s in allllll sorts of colors.

Anywho! I have another release for this Friday that you’re all gonna love. LynBDesigns created 9 (yes. N I N E.) beautiful holos that are so buttery smooth, oh my god. This is going to be super photo-heavy, so let’s get into it, yeah?

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.

You guys. This was 102% supposed to go up last night. But did it? Helllll naw. I fell asleep at my desk watching episodes of Shark Week. Mistakes were made. Speaking of mistakes, oh lord. I just created my first resume so I could apply for an internal position (I’ll elaborate on all of that later, I’m not in the right mindset for that junk to go public just yet). I thought it looked okay, but some of the headers were a bit too light. The service that I used allowed me to import it into another format, so I did that, and then uploaded my resume for the application. I DID THE THING, AND I WAS PROUD.

I asked boyfriend to look over my resume, just for posterity, and he giggled as soon as he started reading it.

SKILLS

  • Attention to detail/

…apparently not nearly enough attention. Shitshitshit. I guess something happened during the import and I didn’t catch it. Luck for me, this is an internal position and I know the folks that are recruiting and all that jazz, but dang. I’m a little bit more than slightly embarrassed. It’s quite comical now that I think about it. You live and you learn, right?

IN OTHER NEWS, I’ve got two gorgeous polishes from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer to share with y’all that are available for preorder now!

Happy… Saturday? It doesn’t feel like a Saturday. It feels like… Tuesday? I have no idea. My schedule is super out of whack and I managed to work my way into a morning shift today. Mistakes have been made. Naps shall be taken to rectify this, however. But before that, I want to share another of Baroness X‘s Monthly Mythical Mysteries with y’all! This one is alllll the way from November 2017, so if y’all pitch a fit about spoilers, I’m totally going to send glittery gummy peens your way. Just sayin’.

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.

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.
