Hihi! I hope allllllll y’all are well! I’m currently watching The Killing and finishing out my final work week as an Agent and swatching my little heart out before Polish Con on the 23rd. Speaking of, I need some good juju. All of my nails broke. Way. Far. Down. I’m oiling them up as much as I can as well as making sure I eat my hair and nails vitamin gummy because I don’t want nubbies for the convention. I actually reswatched one of the polishes that you’re going to see tonight because I wanted matching lengths. The best part? I had to file them down even more AFTER these photos. Now I’m hoping that they grow out at least a little before the convention.

Bah. Shit sucks and then you die, right? Anywho, pretty shiny things just in time for fall! Necessary Evil Polish is back on my blog tonight with some beautiful offerings!

Good morning, friends! It’s super nice to be back and blogging, it feels like it’s been forever instead of just a week. After looking at my schedule and my vehicle being on its last leg, I decided to stay home from GenCon. I was super bummed because I just wanted to be among the dice and nerds and awesome cosplays as well as getting to see the boyfriend. Luckily, the awesome couple that introduced me to him have a second car that they’re selling, so they offered to let me drive it up to Indy for a day. I followed them yesterday (lolthatwasfunbeingblindasabat) and then drove back early evening. I am still exhausted as well as adjusting to my new glasses. Which, naturally, is exactly why I’m up and blogging AND editing at 6:30 in the morning.

Anywho, I’ve got some neon goodness from Necessary Evil Polish as the perfect way to wrap up the summer! One of these y’all have already seen, but since it’s from the California Dreaming collection, I wanted to bring it back to show it with the rest of the set. So, that’s what we’ll do, yeah?

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.

Good evening, my lovelies! I’m sitting here, sipping on my homemade sangria from the 4th and watching iZombie, debating making some mac and cheese and having a sweet little tub journey. Yeah, that sounds like a damn good night. Though, I just discovered that there’s a hair splinter in the bottom of my food, and I’m not quite sure that I’ll make it through the night. Shoot, my nails are naked and nubby. What a shame. Just bury me with my collection, kay?

Whaaaaatever. While I’m sitting here, counting down until I expire, I want to at least show y’all Night Owl Lacquer‘s offering for the July Polish Pickup (Cocktails & Mocktails): Dragon Blood. If you’d like to see lots of pictures and read some of my silly babble, read on!

Good morning, my little owlets! I’ve been awake since 8am and I’m pretty sure the world is ending. I didn’t fall asleep till after 3 , and I’m not entirely sure that I’m fully awake. The only thing that’s keeping me going is my sugar free monster and the promise of a nap in 2 hours. Yup. Times is hard.

But! Aside from the sense of impending doom and sleepiness, I’ve got some more gorgeous Night Owl Lacquers to share! Along with my Little Owlet Duo that I worked with Lindsay to create, she also launched a 4 piece collection that’s absolutely perfect for summer and all beach-goers.

The Beach Life Collection is available now, so let’s take a look at this awesome quad! Oh! And also, I still have that discount code active, so be sure to read till the end for that!

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.

Happy Monday loves! I’m sorry for the absence, I kinda took the last few days to relax and sloth it up while the boyfriend was away for work. Many tub journeys were had, I can tell y’all that. But he’s back, and my heart is full. Ready to get back into our normal routine, y’know? I’m back to start the week off with some gorgeous summery, springy, pastely neons!

A few weeks ago, I shared the first Spring trio from JulieG, so now we’ll go ahead and take a look at the second one. These colors are actually quite friggen pretty. I’m a broken record, I know, but cremes aren’t my thing. Usually. These are slowly helping to change my mind (well, these and our beloved indies).

Afternoon, loves! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend and that if you made it to Polish Con in New York, you had an amazing time! For this lazy Sunday, I’ve got a new-to-me nail polish brand to share AND they were at PC yesterday. Man. I’m so bummed I didn’t get to go, but I’ll be at the Chicago one in September for sure and I hope to see alllll y’all then!

STAYCATION. Y’ALL! We’re on day two. Well, three. But I’m trying not to count, it’ll go by way too quickly if I do. So, I’ve got a pineapple margarita in hand, some new music playing, and my dumb ass is attempting a watermarble. Y’all may or may not see that at some point. We’ll have to see how it turns out. I’m just so dang excited to be off work, for more than like a day and a half. I’ve needed this. AND! I haven’t had a headache or migraine since I had the daith piercing done! Shit. Is. Good.

Why not kick off the staycation with some effin’ fabulous neons?  Lindsay over at Night Owl Lacquer created her first full collection of bright colors, and you guys, they’re amazing. I’m not just saying that because I love the hell outta Lindsay. These are honestly some of the best cremes ever AND they’re the perfect washed-out/almost pastel neon shades. Oh, and they DO NOT NEED UNDIES. I’m in love, and I’ve already worn a few of them multiple times. That doesn’t happen often, nope nope nope.

Happy Wednesday (well, Thursday by the time y’all read this), loves! I’m back with some bright-ass neons to get us through this glorious humpday. The weather is warming up (help me, I’m melting), the pollen is out in full force, and… and I have no idea where I was going with that. IT WARM and I hate it. I love the longer days, don’t get me wrong, and I totally love not wearing a sweater 24/7, but it’s already 70 and I clearly can’t handle the heat. My roommates are going to kill me if I turn on the AC already. So uh. I guess I’ll just distract myself with pretty things to get me through it.
