Evenin’ owlets! I’m back tonight with part two of today’s posts. Well, more like my final swatch of October’s Polish Pickup., or something like that. Whatever. We won’t worry about formalities. I soaked and didn’t read one damn bit, but it was super relaxing. Now I just want hella foods and sleep. Most definitely a cheap date these days, but I ain’t complaining one bit!

Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer is just cranking out beautiful and good smelly things left and right, dudes. Between this polish, Nightfall, and the In the Dark of the Night collection, I honestly don’t think I could love her any more. She’s a bit of a whimsical sci-fi nerd like I am, and so she was super excited for the October Polish Pickup with the theme being Monsters & Mythical Creatures.

Y’all, this is going to be a quick and dirty review because there’s SO MANY PRETTIES. There’s going to be a ton of photos as well as probably too much babble because we know I suck at keeping things concise. I had planned on this going up earlier, but my internal clock is still all sorts of off since Chicago. So uh… Ooops! I’ve been trying to catch back up on swatches, but had to redo some that were completed before the trip because I managed to break a nail at PC last weekend. Thanks, universe. Deadlines are more like loose guidelines, right?

In addition to that gorgeous multichrome I shared last night, Lindsay also created a beautiful 9 piece collection just in time for autumn! It’s made up of 6 vampy cremes and 3 magical toppers – the collection has been aptly named In the Dark of the Night and I’m so in love! They’re all available now so while you scroll on through, you can make your shopping list, yeah? YEAH BUDDY.

My little owlets! I’ve missed y’all dearly! I’ve been back from Chicago for a few days and I’m still completely wiped. I’ve slept WAY more than I probably should have and still haven’t had the chance to go through my Polish Con haul. Times is hard, y’all. So hard. It was a wonderful trip, but I’m more than happy to be home. I missed Mark and his sass way too much. I’m excited, though, because I have a TON of gorgeous things from PC to share in the next few weeks.

Before we get into that, though, I’ve got some amazing new things from my love Lindsay over at Night Owl Lacquer! Her 1 year anniversary as a brand is coming up and I don’t have nearly enough words for how excited I am. Over the last year, while swatching for the brand, I’ve gotten to know her and I’m thrilled to call her one of my best friends. Seeing her brand grow as much as it has has been nothing short of rewarding, and her anniversary polish is a step into something new that I think everyone will love. I’m super proud.

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!

I damn near about greeted y’all with “HAPPY FRIDAY” but, as I have since been informed, it is not Friday. I’ve been duped. I feel betrayed by my own brain. Like. What even is?

So, how has your pseudo Friday gone so far? I’ve been watching Alien: Covenant (which is really just more “DAVID, NO”) and playing with some nail art. Boyfriend’s momma and stepdad are in town for a visit and they’re stopping by soon. I’m excited to see them! Apparently they came by the LAN center last night and I didn’t see them?! I. Am. Oblivious. I have the next three days off, so hopefully we can maybe grab food and drinks. I could do with a night in public featuring real clothes. Maybe. I’ll probably change my mind on that.

While I’ve got your attention, or kinda, I want to share my final swatch from the September Polish Pickup that opens up tomorrow! Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer  is completely knocking it out of the park with green shades this year, truly. The theme, as you may or may not know, is Fall Foliage & Fun and I am totally loving all of it. Lindsay’s polish definitely has me Pining For Fall.

Hihi! Hope you fine folks are having a lovely Thursday evening! Remember that nap from yesterday? Yeah, it wrecked me. I didn’t sleep last night. MISTAKES WERE MADE, Y’ALL. I’m working for a few more hours and then off for two days, so that’s not too bad. Boyfriend works the overnights this weekend (they’re currently putting the store back together from GenCon), so I’m hoping we can have some time to hang out and maybe play Rockband tomorrow. Aw yisssss.

But, before I wrap up my shift, run around in Guild Wars 2, and have a nice tub journey before knocking out, I’ve got a kickass trio from my bestie Lindsay over at Night Owl Lacquer that’s launching tomorrow night. So, sit back, stare at the photos, and put some awesome tunes on. Might I recommend Style Like You by GoldFord? That’s good shit. We’ve got hella babble and a discount code, so scroll on!

Hey y’all! I’m currently all up in my feels between watching Fringe and applying for jobs, so I’ve got some calming wax melting and I’m bundled up in my favorite hoodie waiting for the boyfriend to get dinner going. I put out au gratin taters, veggies, and thawed pork chops. Let’s see how much of the puzzle he can put together, haha! In all seriousness, he’s an absolutely fantastic cook, and spoils me with delicious dinners when we have the time. I’m one lucky gal, that’s for sure.

While things outside of my lacquered-life are a bit messy, I know that there’s plenty of polish to help make things better, including the wonderful folks that make it. Lindsay, from Night Owl Lacquer is totally one of them. She sent me an awesome birthday package this week with a card that totally made me tear up. I’m beyond blessed to have her in my life, and I don’t know how I made it 25 years without her friendship.

Aside from the mushy stuff you just read, I’ve got her BEAUTIFUL contribution to the August Polish Pickup: Fierce & Feisty! This one is incredible, and quite possibly my favorite Night Owlet, so keep reading if you’d like to see more of it!

I’m not sure what to tag this one as. It’s not so much a press sample as a gift, but still. DISCLOSURE. Either way, I’m baaaaaaaaack. I’m on my last day of work before a few days off and man, it’s been a struggle. I’m going to knock out laundry and shipping some packages out tomorrow and then my ass is taking one hella long nap. May go get a few watermelons, too. Yup. That sounds like the perfect time off. Sleep and watermelon and movies. YAAAAASS.

Before the sleepening and the laundering happens, I’ve got a gorgeous grey to share with y’all that’s only available through August 7th. Because I love alllllll of the grey polishes, I created a facebook group, which can be found here. Lindsay from Night Owl Lacquer and LA S. (another nail lacquer lover!) also help wrangle in the fanatics. Welllll, we recently held a giveaway and one of the prizes was this incredible grey that Lindsay made as a one of a kind (or… 4OAK since she made all of us admins one as well) for the winner. It was so well-received that Lindsay offered to open it up as the first group custom and that’s what I’m here to share this evening.

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!
