Hihi! Hope y’all are having a fantastic Friday night! Boyfriend and I wound up staying up all night because I had to fast before blood work early this morning. He works overnights again this weekend, so we figured it’d be a good start to flipping his sleep schedule. After running a few errands and coming back, neither of us wanted to sleep just yet. Which, I’m down with. I’m to the point that I have to be absolutely exhausted in order to be able to sleep, so I was hoping that being up for 22 hours would help. Sleepiness happened, which was awesome. BUT. I woke up 3 hours later wide awake. I think I’m just going to hang out, swatch some stuff with movies going in the background, and then soak before trying to become one with the dead for a few extra hours of sleep. Sounds pretty damn good, especially if I can manage to sneak the air down a few degrees so I’m not roasting.

Before I knock out hard for the next 10+ hours, I wanted to share an AWESOME box with y’all! It’s seriously a nail blogger’s/nail artist’s dream come true, and it’s fall-themed, which makes it like a million times better!

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!

And I’m back, not even 12 hours later! I wanted to get this post up in time for the launch tonight because this set is totally perfect for nail art! Jill from Glisten & Glow totally did an amazing job with these because they stamp AND marble and are the perfect set of cremes. I’m not going to go into the formulas for these in this post since I reviewed them in my last post from earlier this morning/late last night.

Hey y’all, I’m sorry for being so quiet the last few days. Work has been absolutely hellacious and I’ve been fighting the urge to just curl up under my desk and hide for the rest of forever. I’ve been trying to paint my nails to try and uh… paint the anxiety away? But it’s not working. I’m very much so looking forward to my two days off this week, one of which is my wonderful boyfriend’s birthday. Very, very excited. But, that’s not what y’all came to hear, is it?

 

I’ve had the chance to work with an indie stamping brand and I’m so so very excited to share what I’ve created with the lovely It Girl Nail Art‘s new plates. Stamping is something that’s relatively new to me, and I’m still learning new things each day, but I thoroughly enjoy it. There’s definitely a learning curve as some of the images have fine lines, but I’m beyond in love with the nail art that these create. Unf.

Annnd I’m back! We’ve got some nasty winter weather coming in, and I have a feeling we’re about to lose internet again, so I wanted to get this post up before alllllllllll hell breaks loose.

Demetria from Baroness X is back at it with her sass and polish-creation witchcraft to bring us a kickass little set that releases tomorrow. And the theme? Oh my god, it’s magical. She drew inspiration from this last season of South Park. And, well, she knocked it out of their park, and ours.

Frig. It’s almost Friday. Have I done annnnnnything productive this week? Hell no. We’ve had no internet for the last three days (wtf, Time Warner. Y’all suck), and our entire house has been sick. On the plus side, I got my ticket to NYC Polish Con thanks to my amazing boyfriend! Are any of y’all going? It’s going to be amazing!

Other than that, though, life has been pretty dull. Luckily, Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer sent me some new polishes to swatch and share with the world. Ready to see them? They even inspired me to try out some art, and y’all know that doesn’t happen often. I’m excited!

LET’S GET TO THE WINTER BLUES TRIO! (OR THE CHOPPAH. YOU CHOOSE.)

I’m so tired, y’all. This move is going to kill me. Sure, it’s relatively small (stuff going into storage), but I’m a little human with large furniture in an upstairs apartment. Send help. I don’t fly out until Sunday, but I’m already tired thinking about moving in the summer heat that is Georgia. Ugh.

I’ve had the last three days off. I told myself I’d get so much done. So many swatches. Posts. SLEEP. Did any of that happen? EFF NO. I’ve slept maybe a total of 10 hours over the last three days. Send help. Because of this, though, my Independence Day manis were a little delayed in making it onto the blog. I am super sorry, loves! At least these two styles can be used with many many different color combinations, so it’s not like they’re strictly patriotic. :D
