Hihi! Today is going to be another double post day because life took over yesterday, but after y’all see both polishes, I think you’ll forgive me. Mark is off today so we grabbed groceries and lunch and then came back to play Rockband 4 and have yummy drinks. I’m not even gonna lie. I begged him to play Cake By The Ocean so I could sing it while I sipped my drink of the same name. I have thoroughly enjoyed my day so far. Once this post is up, I think I’m going to do a conditioning treatment with my red Overtone and soak with a drink and book. Oh man, that sounds lovely, doesn’t it?

But before that, let’s take a look at what Karen from Lollipop Posse Lacquer created for the October Polish Pickup! As you may have gathered from my previous posts this week, the theme is Monsters & Mythical Creatures, and Nothing Ends fits with it perfectly. She had asked if I could swatch it since I’d be at Polish Con so we could see each other and avoid shipping. I most definitely said yes and came home with some more bubble bars and a Magicians-themed trio. Lord help my wallet. Mrs. and Mr. Lollipop are wonderful folks, y’all. Seriously. This was my second time seeing them, and it was an absolute pleasure.

Hey y’all! The mass bloggening continues! I was awake before 2pm and I’m not entirely sure what to do with myself aside from edit photos and run around aimlessly in WoW. We knocked out laundry and I ought to do dishes, but a nap sounds super awesome. That may have to happen. But first, nail polish!

I’m back with another gorgeous offering for the Polish Pickup that opens this Friday! Jennalyn from LynBDesigns drew her inspiration from the sirens of the sea for the Monsters & Mythical Creatures theme this month, and she knocked it out of the park! I’ve had these swatches done for a little bit now, but I keep coming back to them because I’m honestly super in love with the shade. I think it’s time to break it back out for another wear, and I think all y’all will agree after you see the polish for yourselves.

Good evening! We’re just a few days away from Chicago Polish Con and I can’t wait! I’m meeting up with Kaylyna on Thursday after she flies in and then we’re driving up for the weekend. SO EXCITED! It’s going to be a nice vacation and a much needed distraction that’s a lot better than sleeping WAY too much, right? Now I just need to get through the next few days and hope that I A) don’t forget anything and B) get as much swatching done as possible. Guess it’s a good thing I’m off work right now, haha!

For Fall 2017 (which is in 4 days, you guys. F O U R D A Y S. This is not a drill.), Octopus Party Nail Lacquer has a 5 piece set inspired by Haitian Vodou that’ll go up for preorder on the 20th (well, all but one, but I’ll explain that here in a minute). These 5 polishes speak to my creepy little soul, and they’re perfect for the upcoming witchy season!

Ohay y’all! I didn’t get nearly as many posts up this week as I would have liked to, but that’s okay. I clocked out of work last night for the last time, and I’m not sure how I feel, other than meh. It’s sad seeing all of my fellow Agents post about going sleeper, and it all just made it that much more real. Mark was super nice and listened to me ugly cry for a little and then poured me a big ol’ glass of wine and put up with me babbling about nonsense until 11am. Bless his heart. He’s too good to me. It’s weird, though, thinking about no longer being a Geek Squad Agent. I’m hoping that I’ll hear back about a position that I applied for, but I’m not too hopeful since there’s so many that applied for it. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed my time, and I know that no matter what, I’ll be Agent 52638, even if in sleeper status.

 

Okay, okay. Enough sads. Instead, let’s focus on some gorgeous jelly flakies! All Mixed Up Lacquers is a new-to-me brand and dude. LJ’s polishes completely blew me out of the water. I’m super excited to share these with y’all. They’re available now, so keep reading if you’d like to see all of these magnificent polishes in all of their glory!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.
