Hey y’all! I am currently nodding off at my desk, waiting for UPS to come by with a new tripod and backdrop holder. Normally they’re here right at 10a. It’s like they know that I’m FINALLY sleepy sleepy and decided to go slowly. I’m not gonna complain, they’re saints for bringing packages almost every day, and they’re all super nice. That, and it’s not like I can’t curl up after the package gets here, right?

While I’m waiting, I figured it’d be the perfect time to show some amazeballs stampable holos to you fine folks! It’s been a few months since  Moonflower Polish has been on my blog with their own post, so I’m here to remedy that. LEHGO!

Season 2 of Stranger Things starts tonight, my dudes. And I’m hella excited. I’ve watched the first season a few times, and I catch something new each time. It’s right up my alley as far as creepy stuffs, so I think there’d be a problem with me if I didn’t enjoy it.

The temps here in Indiana went from 85 last week to 35 right now, and as much as I enjoy it, it has also brought a family of mice seeking warmth in our house. Mark’s brother mentioned yesterday morning that he’d woken up to a furry little critter on his face, but it ran as soon as he moved. Neat. We went to bed around 2am last night, and right as my beloved’s snoring started, I heard it. That tiny little pitter patter on our hard wood floors. I woke him up and we had this plan to shoo it out of our room but that failed as it took a turn and came right for my feet, which made me shriek something fierce. We decided to go downstairs and lay on the sofa and put something on the TV (because we don’t currently have a bed frame). I finally started to drift off and decided that I wanted to lay on the floor because soft squishy couch wasn’t comfy, but having my ribs touching the floor since I’m stomach sleeper was?? I heard Mark flail not 15 minutes later, which set me on high alert. He informed me that a mouse had gone by my hand and I don’t think my chubby ass has ever moved so quickly. Sleep so did not happen last night or this morning. You know what did, however? Finally getting boyface to watch Stranger Things with me! Only took a year, but y’know what? I don’t even care.

But all of that babbling brings me to this here post, because Stranger Things-inspired lacquer makes my heart happy. When I swatched for Fanchromatic Nails last time, Lynae had also sent this topper and I figured it’s the perfect time to share it with the new season starting in 12 minutes.

Afternoon, folks! I’ve missed you guys greatly, I just haven’t had a whole lot of energy lately. Work has taken a very unawesome turn so I’ve just been trying to lay low. That being said, I have so so so many things to share, so it’s not logical to keep hiding. Today I’ve got an awesome new primer that I’ve been testing for about 3 or 4 weeks, and I’m pretty sure you’re all going to love it!

Since I tend to swatch several polishes each day, I’m not looking for longevity in my wear time. Usually. Now and then, however, I’d like to have some manis last, usually when we’re going out somewhere and I won’t have time to redo my nails. This primer from 2x has been PERFECT.

Halleloo, we made it through a work week, my friends. All that is standing between me and freedom is a shift tomorrow night. And then you know what? I’m off until Thursday, hell. the. frig. yes. We’re going to Cedar Point in Ohio on Monday and I’m kinda jazzed. It’s a tiny break away from the house and my desk and I cannot wait. Now I just need to get my butt to the store for sunscreen and some capris (and maybe a fanny back because I mean really, who can actually carry a phone and glucose tabs while on a roller coaster? Don’t judge. You know it’s a good idea.) Until then, though, I’m going to continue to work on swatches and nail art and all the things because I feel as if I have a duty to share all that is good in the lacquered world with y’all.

This evening, I’ve got 4 of the shimmery metallic stamping shades from Moonflower Polish‘s La Isla del Encanto summer collection to share. I’m going to go ahead and include Nadia’s description of the collection because it’s pretty special, and you’ll understand the names of the polishes a bit more that way. There’s also a discount code for my readers at the end of the post, so keep reading!

Good evening, my little nerdlings! Today is my day off and I’ve been a complete bum. Mark had to go out of town for work again (just till tomorrow, thank goodness), so I curled my lazy ass up in bed and went back to sleep. Got up to get some yummy Chinese food, get this post up, and then I’m debating curling back up after a lovely tub journey. I’ve never really been one to just lounge around and relax. I’ve never been good at it, but man. This is nice.

This weekend starts June’s Polish Pickup launch for the month and I’m super excited because there’s some super gorgeous polishes that’ll be available. If you’re not familiar with the idea, it’s pretty neat! Each month, folks get the chance to vote on themes and then makers will create gorgeous polishes based on the chosen theme. From there, the weekend that they go live, you can pick and choose which polishes you’d like to purchase. Shipping is a flat $3 to the US and Canada regardless of how many polishes you purchase. Definitely beats buying a box for only one or two polishes and then hoping you can sell the other ones in the box that you didn’t wish to buy. I’ve got full details in an older post here just in case you’d like to learn a bit more!

MY DUDES! It’s Wednesday. AND I’M WORKING LIKE WHAT EVEN IS. Ugh. Boyfriend had to go to NJ for work through the end of the week, so instead of being mopey (don’t judge, I don’t like being alone in the house), I picked up some hours. And by pick up, I mean I traded so I should have the day off the day he comes back. Or something. I forsee plenty of naps and bubble baths over the next few days.

Speaking of a bubble bath. He told me last night to have a “nice tub journey”…

???

I cackled. Hard. Bless his sweet heart.

So uh. Wanna see some pretty polish inspired by a kickass human and awesome music?

Hey loves! It’s Friday and the sun is finally shining and all is good here in Narnialand. Well, I kinda want the rain back, but at least it’s nice and cool outside. I hope alllllll y’all lovely folks are enjoying your day! I’ve got a few of the new pastel stamping polishes to share with you guys from the lovely Nadia, aka the goddess behind Moonflower Polish. I’ve played with them nonstop since they came in the post, and I’m in love. I’ll definitely be snagging the full set at some point!

This is way late. Because I’m lazy. I’m glad I didn’t have deadlines this week. I woulda let WAY TOO MANY folks down. I haven’t felt inspired or really anything that makes me want to paint my nails over the last two weeks, but Starbucks totally changed that for me one day last week! Now, I’m not super into the unicorn craze, but this drink was too damn pretty to pass up for arting.

Hey loves! My staycation is almost over, and that’s sad as all get out, but I’m ready to stop being a sloth. Maybe. I’ve actually been able to sleep, and it’s SO nice not having headaches. I totally needed this! Even better, I’ve had plenty of time to try out nail art. Sure, lots fail, but damnit if I ain’t tryin’ my best!

So for this lovely Saturday, I’ve got some stamping cremes to share with y’all! One of my favorite bloggers, Mama Hearts Polish, recently launched her own brand of stamping polishes known as Moonflower Polish. I’ve had the last week to play with them, and oh man. I’m definitely going to go back and buy every single one. They just work so well, even for someone like me, who isn’t all that great at stamping. Let’s take a look at some of the awesome (and not so awesome) manis I created with these!
