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.

Hey loves! I hope y’all are all doing well on this balmy Tuesday evening! Instead of packing like I probably should have, I took a nap and it was glorious. Now I’m up and editing and swatching and listening to the boyfriend play the new Marvel game on his arcade-like fight stick. He’s entirely too cute for me, and I’m going to miss him something fierce all weekend.

Speaking of this weekend, LynBDesigns will be launching a fantastic 9 piece collection at Polish Con. They’ll be there and discounted for the convention, and then will go up online on the 30th. Keep reading if you’d like to see more of the You’re Punny Collection!

Hello folks! I’m on my second to last night of work and melting all of the calming waxes and I just placed an order for some eucalyptus spearmint bath bombs. (Kaylyna, don’t kill me, I NEED ALL OF THE HAPPY TUB JOURNEYS RIGHT ABOUT NOW.) We’re getting the outer bands of the lovely Irma here now – it’s not even that bad, just rainy as the very edge of the storm is hitting us – and it’s super nice. I’ve got some comfy pants and my favorite hoodie on and I’m surprisingly calm despite my job (or lack of) situation. I’ll take it, y’know?

Moooooooving on! I’ve got three pretties from the fabulous Jennalyn at LynBDesigns that’ll be exclusively at Polish Con next weekend, and they’ll each only be $8! Keep reading, my friends. These are absolutely lovely, and you’re not going to want to miss them.

Mernin’ folks! Or evening, depending on where you are and when you’re reading this, I suppose. It’s about 5am and I’m hanging out watching movies and swatching all the things while boyfriend works his normal weekend overnight shift at the LAN center. Earlier, we met up with his friend from out of town for dinner at Applebee’s. Y’all. They had ginormous margaritas for $5 and I could not resist. They were a bit busy, so I had finished it before our food came out and when the server asked if I wanted another, my tipsy ass said yes. They ran out of the big margarita glasses – I guess it’s like a giant martini glass? So the second one came out to me in a damn beer stein thingy. FULL. Because I ain’t no quitter, I most definitely finished it while eating the delicious mac and cheese and BBQ tenders that I’d ordered. SO GOOD. So, that was my Saturday. Not too bad, I’d say.

If any of y’all have been checking out the Polish Con Facebook group, you may have noticed the awesome Road to Polish Con series that they introduced for the NYC PC back in April. They brought it back for the one at the end of this month in Chicago, and I’m seriously excited. The final week has a gorgeous purple from the ever-awesome LynBDesigns and that’s what I’m here to learn y’all lovely nerds about this morning.

Evening loves! I hope all y’all had a lovely week with minimal monday-feely-weekdays. I feel like I worked a ton and yet did nothing. YAY for moving to a 4 10hr shift work schedule! I swatched quite a bit, so y’all will be seeing that stuff soon, but I also played a TON of Guild Wars 2. They recently announced the next expansion and they’re ADDING MOUNTS. The beta is up and the first one they’re demoing is A MAGNIFICENT DOGGO RAPTOR. Please hold for gifs. Because I ugly happy cried running around all day with mine. I. Can’t. Wait.

But but but I know y’all aren’t here for that. I just couldn’t help but share. Mark plays too, and he’s excited, but he’s not nearly as into these daggum raptordoggos as I am. ANYWHO. I’ve got the new Bohemian Dreams Collection by JulieG from Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics to share tonight! There’s 6 GORGEOUS cremes with LE wood-grain-esque handles, and they are, in my opinion, the perfect transition into autumn. Just so I’m not repeating myself, these are all nearly one-coaters. I went back for a second on each just to level everything out, but these are deliciously opaque in one coat.

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?

Y’all. I’m tired. I’m fighting the urge to curl up on the sofa for the rest of the day. As usual, I didn’t fall asleep until close to 5am. That’s fine, it’s whatever. I needed to be up by 10, because, you see, while Mark was gone last week, I impulse ordered 6 bottles of wine with unicorns on them. It was a moment of weakness. I regret nothing. However, an adulty adult has to sigh for the package, and the delivery window was 10-2 today. 5 minutes before my alarm for 9:20 goes off, I hear banging on the door downstairs. Maintenance. You know why? Our light fixture flipped out and starting blowing bulbs within just a few minutes of them being on. I put on the order that we’re okay with them walking in if nobody answers. Dudebro comes in at 9:15 in the friggen morning and just starts SCREAMING to get someone downstairs. Repeatedly. THAT’S COOL.

Hobie, one of the roommates, went downstairs to have the dude hakuna his tatas because I was searching for clothes to make myself look decent, and figured he may as well get ready for work. As he went to leave, he noticed that someone threw a big ass rock at his windshield. Funny that it’s just a few weeks after my window was broken in the same way. So now I’m up, waiting for UPS, eating cocoa crispies and trying to not fall asleep. May as well get a post up, right? At least I’ve got some gorgeous neons to share! They’ll for sure brighten up anybody’s day.

Okay, okay. Enough babbling. I’ve got the 3rd trio from the JulieG Spring polish line from Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics. Dang, that’s a mouthful.

Yeah. It’s May and I’m getting ready to show you October’s mystery polish. That’s how far behind I am on these Baroness X Monthly Mythical Mystery posts. I mean, at least y’all don’t have to worry about me spoiling shit, right? Right.

This is another one that I had swatched and ready to go before the move, as you can probably tell by my longer nails. Man, I need to figure out how to get my setup back like it was at the other house. It’s like something threw off my groove. My nails keep breaking, my lighting is meeeeeh. That’s some feng shui f***ery right there.

Hey babes! Long time no see, eh? My perpetual state of exhaustion has only increased, even with having days off. I need a vacation, I swear. But, I’ve had quite a bit of time to try out some gorgeous new polishes and stamping plates (wait till y’all see those, my goodness!), so there’s that! I also had the chance to dye my hair for the first time since August, I feel fierce, you guys. SO FIERCE. Also, my damn nails broke through my gloves and now my nails are stained to hell and back, a week later. It’s awful. I’ve tried three mani bombs, toothpaste, baking soda, scrubby brush… everything, all to no avail. So uh. If you guys have any tips on getting dark hair dye out of nails, I’m alllllllllllllllllllllllllllll ears.

Anywho! This collection that I’m about to share, is so friggen unique and fantastical and unf. I’m finding myself drooling each time I either catch my nails in the light or I’m going through my photos to edit. Frrrrrrrrig!
