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!

Hey y’all! I hope you guys are having a fantastic evening! We just got back from seeing Wonder Woman, and ho lee she it, it was FANTASTIC. I didn’t think I’d like it (because I really only watch horror movies, if any at all), but it was SO well done. It didn’t fit in with the cheesy, over-the-top campy trope that most superhero movies do, and I am very glad. I definitely would like to see it again at some point! Have you guys seen it?

Anywho. This duo that I’ve got to share with y’all tonight, oh my word. I’m so excited. It’s been in the works for a few months now, and wish schedules letting up a bit, my dearest Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer made it happen and ready to go this weekend. You see, in the fan group on facebook, which I help admin, I refer to the folks in there as my little owlets. It caught on and now that’s what I think of them as. The group is small, and just lovely. Well, I found a gif of a widdol baby owlet getting some good pats on the head, and all I went to Lindsay with the idea of a group custom based on it.

Good evening, my little nerdlings! Today is my day off and I’ve been a complete bum. Mark had to go out of town for work again (just till tomorrow, thank goodness), so I curled my lazy ass up in bed and went back to sleep. Got up to get some yummy Chinese food, get this post up, and then I’m debating curling back up after a lovely tub journey. I’ve never really been one to just lounge around and relax. I’ve never been good at it, but man. This is nice.

This weekend starts June’s Polish Pickup launch for the month and I’m super excited because there’s some super gorgeous polishes that’ll be available. If you’re not familiar with the idea, it’s pretty neat! Each month, folks get the chance to vote on themes and then makers will create gorgeous polishes based on the chosen theme. From there, the weekend that they go live, you can pick and choose which polishes you’d like to purchase. Shipping is a flat $3 to the US and Canada regardless of how many polishes you purchase. Definitely beats buying a box for only one or two polishes and then hoping you can sell the other ones in the box that you didn’t wish to buy. I’ve got full details in an older post here just in case you’d like to learn a bit more!

Hey babes! I hope y’all have had a wonderful week so far! It’s been a blur here. It’s been raining nonstop (thanks, universe, for the endless torrential downpour when my window is still out in my car. APPRECIATE IT) and it’s the perfect cuddle up weather. That being said, that hasn’t happened. At. All. Boyfriend and I got up early yesterday after maybe two hours of sleep to go pick up a car from his dad’s, a new(to him) RX-8 and then ran around doing laundry IN THE RAIN. I don’t even care, though. Seeing the smile on my boyfriend’s face is so worth it. He had an older model that needed a bit of work, but his dad found this awesome one for him and he’s in love with it. Makes my heart happy.

Annnnnnnyyywho! Today is the 4th! As in MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU! And I’ve got a special science-themed lacquer by Night Owl Lacquer to share with you guys. Now, it’s not a Star Wars polish, but I couldn’t resist waiting to share this on this magnificent day. The Polish Pickup is back this month with a science theme, and man. The creations from each maker are all amazing. If you’re unsure of what the Polish Pickup is, be sure to check out my post from last month on it here.

This is way late. Because I’m lazy. I’m glad I didn’t have deadlines this week. I woulda let WAY TOO MANY folks down. I haven’t felt inspired or really anything that makes me want to paint my nails over the last two weeks, but Starbucks totally changed that for me one day last week! Now, I’m not super into the unicorn craze, but this drink was too damn pretty to pass up for arting.

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.

DAY FOUR! We’re almost there, folks! Are y’all sick of me yet? I sure hope not, because there’s no sign of stopping. I’m going to try and queue up more posts so that next week is as busy as this one. I kinda like it. I feel 7 different kinds of important. No lie.

I uh… I’m only really good at three things in life. Overthinking all the things, not being able to sleep, and being able to listen to a song for HOURS on repeat. My poor boyfriend has to deal with me listening to one song on repeat while I’m in the shower and belting my heart out. Bless his soul. He always asks me how I can do it and not get sick of it. I honestly don’t know. I remember my mom would get mad and tell me that I was going to ruin my cd and/or my walkman playing the same song over and over and over and over. MOM, YOU WERE WRONG, JUST SAYIN’. I… I had a point to this. I’m not sure what it was. Maybe to share a song? Probably. I recently got caught up on my current favorite anime, Blue Exorcist, and this recent season has this theme song that I’m in love with. There’s a little breakdown in the beat and oh my gawd, it’s my favorite part. That’s been on repeat for the last week. I found an english version that I’m trying to learn, but the Japanese version has the BEST breakdown part. Words are hard. Just listen. And maybe enjoy. Or something.

Hey loves! I’m running a tad bit behind tonight, oops! Today is my handsome boyfriend’s birthday, so we spent the day being lazy with copious amounts of donuts and sushi. It’s rare that we have a day off together these days, so it was so wonderful having this special day together, even if he hates birthdays. Now that we’re wrapping up the evening, he’s playing a few Overwatch matches as I sit here with a Baby Foot mask on attempting to write this post. It’s not that I don’t love doing these, it’s just that I normally take HOURS to write them, since I often walk away and try to do a million other things at the same time. This way, I have these stupid boot mask things on, so I have to sit here. I’m dying to move around. Send help.

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.)

Man. As much as 2016 sucked in general, I had a pretty kickass year as a blogger. Well, and a nail polish hoarder. I won quite a bit (lolIhaveahelmerfullofuntriedssendhelp), got to go to a huge indie nail polish convention, and I had the chance to work with some amazing brands for collaborations that mean the absolute world to me. I’ve also had the chance to meet some wonderful makers and become friends with them. I’m one lucky gal, y’all.

So, since my 2016 was neato polish-wise, I wanted to host a giveaway of my own to start off 2017 and hopefully make somebody’s day,  just as the indie world has done for me, over and over.
