Evenin’ owlets! I’m back tonight with part two of today’s posts. Well, more like my final swatch of October’s Polish Pickup., or something like that. Whatever. We won’t worry about formalities. I soaked and didn’t read one damn bit, but it was super relaxing. Now I just want hella foods and sleep. Most definitely a cheap date these days, but I ain’t complaining one bit!

Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer is just cranking out beautiful and good smelly things left and right, dudes. Between this polish, Nightfall, and the In the Dark of the Night collection, I honestly don’t think I could love her any more. She’s a bit of a whimsical sci-fi nerd like I am, and so she was super excited for the October Polish Pickup with the theme being Monsters & Mythical Creatures.

Two posts in one day‽ Yeah dudes. That’s just how much I have to share with y’all, and I’m seriously loving it. I took a nap, I made a meaty pasta sauce (and cooked the noodles in our rice cooker. Livin’ in 3017 over here, folks), and now I’m watching Ghost Adventures. Definitely enjoying life right about now.

I’ve also been playing loads of World of Warcraft. I mean, I normally do that, but this time I kinda have a purpose. Kinda. There are story campaigns for each class in the game, and each yield a class-specific title and all that good stuff. With the extra time I’ve had off, I’ve also been able to level the rest of my characters to 110 (with the exception of some lowbies that don’t have flying which makes leveling HELLA unfun), and then started working on their campaigns. I know it’s just a game, but damnit, I feel accomplished. 8 110’s all with the campaign completed and I’m working my way toward having the class mounts, which were added as an extended campaign. WHY CAN’T I BE THIS DEDICATED AND SHIT IN REAL LIFE?

Speaking of WoW, I’ve got an incredible multichrome polish to share with y’all that is inspired by Illidan from the Warcraft lore. Moon Shine Mani is participating in the Polish Pickup for the first time this month and this is their contribution for the Monsters & Mythical Creatures theme. To say that I’m excited would be a very gross understatement. Phoebe, the MSM mastermind, also plays WoW and based on that fact alone, I’ve decided that she and I are friends. Just sayin’.

Y’all, this is going to be a quick and dirty review because there’s SO MANY PRETTIES. There’s going to be a ton of photos as well as probably too much babble because we know I suck at keeping things concise. I had planned on this going up earlier, but my internal clock is still all sorts of off since Chicago. So uh… Ooops! I’ve been trying to catch back up on swatches, but had to redo some that were completed before the trip because I managed to break a nail at PC last weekend. Thanks, universe. Deadlines are more like loose guidelines, right?

In addition to that gorgeous multichrome I shared last night, Lindsay also created a beautiful 9 piece collection just in time for autumn! It’s made up of 6 vampy cremes and 3 magical toppers – the collection has been aptly named In the Dark of the Night and I’m so in love! They’re all available now so while you scroll on through, you can make your shopping list, yeah? YEAH BUDDY.

My little owlets! I’ve missed y’all dearly! I’ve been back from Chicago for a few days and I’m still completely wiped. I’ve slept WAY more than I probably should have and still haven’t had the chance to go through my Polish Con haul. Times is hard, y’all. So hard. It was a wonderful trip, but I’m more than happy to be home. I missed Mark and his sass way too much. I’m excited, though, because I have a TON of gorgeous things from PC to share in the next few weeks.

Before we get into that, though, I’ve got some amazing new things from my love Lindsay over at Night Owl Lacquer! Her 1 year anniversary as a brand is coming up and I don’t have nearly enough words for how excited I am. Over the last year, while swatching for the brand, I’ve gotten to know her and I’m thrilled to call her one of my best friends. Seeing her brand grow as much as it has has been nothing short of rewarding, and her anniversary polish is a step into something new that I think everyone will love. I’m super proud.

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.

It’s almost Friday, folks. We’re almost there. If you made it through the day without taking a nap, I’m proud of you. And even if you didn’t, I’m still proud. You did the thing. I, personally, failed and took several naps. I’ve been studying up on the Indiana driver’s test because in order to get my license here, I have to retake the test. Y’ALL. IT’S BEEN LIKE 9 YEARS. I DON’T REMEMBER THIS STUFF. There’s some online tests that give questions that are on there. I’ve failed them so many times, it’s comical at this point. That may or may not be what led to naps. Ooops. I think we’re going to try it tomorrow, I’ve held off on getting it transferred over long enough. Now that I’m bored with studying and editing the thousands of photos that I need do, I’m here to show off some pretties!

After a small break thanks to life, Courtney from Posh Paints Nail Lacquer is back with a GOOOORGEOUS shifty collection! It’s made up of three multichrome flakies and three flakie toppers and they’re launching this Sunday, the 28th! I’ll have a bit more info on that toward the end. Let’s get to the pretties, shall we?

Before we get into it, I wanted to let you guys know that I also matted these to pull the colors out, and holy eff, they’re life. I used Glisten & Glow’s matte TC and my bottle now has a scary fill line. Shit’s serious, y’all.

Hey y’all! Happy Friday! I know I’ve been quiet all week, and I’m sorry for that. I had my first migraine since the piercing (on the opposite side, ugh) and my internal clock is all sorts of off. I had a few days off in a row, but did I sleep properly for it? NAW. Nope, I binge-watched 13 Reasons Why, and me and my feelings are still recovering. I did, however, get to swatch some gorgeous shifty nail polish and even try a little art with them, so I’ve got that going for me.

Connie from Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer has launched a shifty new collection and y’all aren’t going to want to miss it. The indie world is currently obsessing over duochromes and multichromes, and I love seeing makers add their own personal flair to their contributions – what our beloved 77NL maker has created adds something special to the craze.

Ohhh yes. Yes good. It is time. For Game of Throne-y goodness. I just. I took the day off (HELLUR MIGRAINE YOU SUCK) and I’ve just come out of bedcave because the world needs to know about these. All of these. Seriously. I’ve gone around shoving the bottles in the faces of my poor boyfriend and roommates (and also folks that hang out at the LAN center he works at) because holyfucksticksgameofthronesnailpolish. Also, to help soothe the brain, I’ve got one of the tracks from Legion’s soundtrack playing, Choir and Crickets, by Jeff Russo. I fell in love with it as soon as I heard it on the show, and honestly, it kinda fits with the theme of the lacquers. I’m not sure how. But it does. Probably.

Hey hey babes! I know, it’s weird. I’m blogging during the day. Like. What even is?! The damn earth snatched an hour from us and now my sleep schedule is even more wonky than before. I didn’t think that was even possible. Oh, and to top that off, it snowed yesterday. Luckily, we’re not getting heavy snow storms like our friends to the North East, but- OH MY GOD IT’S PI DAY! Well, that explains why I’ve seen so many photos of Dean from Supernatural all over Facebook…

Holy mother of squirrel, y’all. I blame day blogging. I feel like a hot mess. Anywho. It’s been a while since I’ve had Baroness X on the blog, hasn’t it? Demi has created a stunning 4 piece collection inspired by names of counter culture publications from the late 60s. If you’re a fan of magical shifty pigments such as Unicorn Pee, you’re going to want to keep reading. Trufax.

Hey y’all! I’m back with post no. 2 for the week to share some STUNNING multichromes with you guys. I’m still working through swatching stuff for posts this week (ahahahahaha HELLO PROCRASTINATION.), but naturally that’s going slowly as life gets in the way. And, well, life means my inability to sleep at night, so power naps between collections have been happening. Bless my poor, sweet boyfriend. He’s put up with my schedule and me sticking my hands in  his face and babbling my scheduled posts at him and he’s handled it like a champ. I may just have to put a ring on that. Just sayin’.
