Press samples ahead!

You guys. This was 102% supposed to go up last night. But did it? Helllll naw. I fell asleep at my desk watching episodes of Shark Week. Mistakes were made. Speaking of mistakes, oh lord. I just created my first resume so I could apply for an internal position (I’ll elaborate on all of that later, I’m not in the right mindset for that junk to go public just yet). I thought it looked okay, but some of the headers were a bit too light. The service that I used allowed me to import it into another format, so I did that, and then uploaded my resume for the application. I DID THE THING, AND I WAS PROUD.

I asked boyfriend to look over my resume, just for posterity, and he giggled as soon as he started reading it.

  • Attention to detail/

…apparently not nearly enough attention. Shitshitshit. I guess something happened during the import and I didn’t catch it. Luck for me, this is an internal position and I know the folks that are recruiting and all that jazz, but dang. I’m a little bit more than slightly embarrassed. It’s quite comical now that I think about it. You live and you learn, right?

IN OTHER NEWS, I’ve got two gorgeous polishes from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer to share with y’all that are available for preorder now!

Hey loves! I’m super backlogged on swatching, so this is going to be quick, but you’re going to love all of it, I promise. Ella Ann Cosmetics, one of my favorite stockists, has decided to close her doors and step back from the polish world. Kristen has done a wonderful job over the last 3 or so years, and I sincerely hope that she has a blast with whatever her next venture is!

As a send off, of sorts, Dave, the octo-overlord from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer, has created a 5 piece tropical collection as a final collab with EAC, and that’s what I’m here to show you tonight! These are 5 tropical jellies with soft holo. They’ll be going up for preorder on June 9th at 9pm EST, so make sure to set your alarms!

You guys. I worked a morning shift and I didn’t cry. I did the thing. I did, however, take a nap after stuffing my face full of triscuits and lemonade. Adulting at its finest, right? In other news, I found another creepy thing to watch online. Apparently, this last Fall, Fox aired a series called The Exorcist, and I have just discovered it. My creepy little heart is happy, y’all. I’ve been watching it nonstop all day. While watching, I also had the chance to swatch some pretties, so today is like a total win.

For June’s Polish Pickup, Dave from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer created a GORGEOUS cobalt jelly that I’m excited to share with you guys tonight!

Ohhh yes. Yes good. It is time. For Game of Throne-y goodness. I just. I took the day off (HELLUR MIGRAINE YOU SUCK) and I’ve just come out of bedcave because the world needs to know about these. All of these. Seriously. I’ve gone around shoving the bottles in the faces of my poor boyfriend and roommates (and also folks that hang out at the LAN center he works at) because holyfucksticksgameofthronesnailpolish. Also, to help soothe the brain, I’ve got one of the tracks from Legion’s soundtrack playing, Choir and Crickets, by Jeff Russo. I fell in love with it as soon as I heard it on the show, and honestly, it kinda fits with the theme of the lacquers. I’m not sure how. But it does. Probably.

I missed you nerds. Somethin’ fierce. I took a week off because I’ve been so dang tired, but I had no idea what was coming. My whole. friggen. house. is. sick. My boyfriend? He’s effin’ patient zero over here. Hobie, boyfriend’s bro, and I, are all sick as all get out. Boyfriend? HE’S JUST MOSTLY FINE NOW.  Naturally it hits when I’m in the middle of a 6 day work stretch and a huge swatchathon. One more shift and then my ass is staying in bed until I clock in next. Shoooooot, if I even make it that long. If I die between now and then, you fine folks can divvy up my polish hoard between the lot of ya. Sound good? Yup.

OKAY JENALYN BRING IT BACK IN. NAIL. POLISH. YES. GOOD.

Press samples purchased with blogger discount.

Full disclosure – I’m an actual idiot. I had this post ready to go live on Saturday, 2 days before the preorder. Instead, I managed to queue it somehow for today, the day after the preorder ended. So. Those that are reading this, I am 100000000% sorry and I hope you snagged these because this post will only make you wish you’d bought them. Trufax.

The little nubbins and I are back for some late-night bloggin’! I just got done making the prettiest pumpkin pie I will ever make in my life and running to kroger because I forgot sugar for the sweet potato casserole for tomorrow. Ugh. At least we go after midnight so there’s not a metric shit ton of folks there in the same predicament as me. Bed needs to happen soon since I work in the morning (aw yiss, that sweet holiday pay, yo!), but these Ella Ann Cosmetics exclusives from OPNL launch at 10pm EST tonight. They. Are. Gorgeous. Oh man.

I find it very cruel to make an indie addict pick their top 5 favorite polishes when there’s at least a bajillion pretty little brands that are all equally awesome. I must have sat in front of my collection for a good 45 minutes trying to narrow it down. If I’m going to be honest, I have more like a top 72. They’re just ALL SO PRETTY. Ugh.

Karen from Pish.Posh.Polish decided to round up several bloggers to pick their favorites so be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post to see what the others chose as theirs!
