Press samples ahead! 

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!

Happy Thursday, my little nerdlings! Since I’m on a no buy from now until Polish Con at the end of April, I figured I’d work through my collection of untrieds that has grown out of control since I started swatching last fall. Send help. Please. And coffee. And pizza.

Or maybe just a few hundred Whipped Strawberry Rockstar energy drinks. They’re the tits. Seriously.

YOU GUYS. VIDEO GAME-THEMED NAIL POLISH. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. WHAT A KICKASS WAY TO START THE NEW YEAR!?

Pretty & Polished has totally done it again, you guys! This collection, oh my goodness, I love it so. I’ve been impatiently waiting to share these with y’all, and now that it launches tomorrow (1/1), I’m safe to share my photos!

Chelsea reached out to me one morning, while I was at the dentist, asking if I liked video games, and I nearly freaked in the chair. Aside from working and painting my nails, I mostly game. We’re a nerdy household with far too many consoles and computers and it’s wonderful. Gaming is what I grew up on. It’s helped me through some dark times and also kept me sane for many years. It means so much more to me than I can put into words. So… this collection? It has to be a favorite of mine. It represents two things that mean the absolute world to me, and I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I do. Let’s get into it, shall we?
