Hey babes! As y’all can see, I did not boil to death last night. I mean, I came close, but I survived. My chubby ass was NOT meant for warm weather, ugh. But, such is life. My boyfriend’s momma and step dad are in town for a family funeral, so we took the day for family stuff and then went to dinner. Y’all. I had the most amazing tropical margarita, ever. Pineapple and orange juice and yum. Pair that with a delicious fillet? Oh HELL yes. Was good. But I know you fine folks aren’t here to listen to my daily shenanigans. Nope. It’s polish time!

Remember when I introduced you guys to Necessary Evil Polish a few weeks back? Well, Tee sent me a few more polishes from her debut collection, the Galactic Line, and I’ve had a week or two to play with them. Oh man, these are awesome, too!

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!

Happy Friday, folks! I’m back with some awesome mainstream neons that are PERFECT for summer! Through Preen.me, I had the chance to work with Morgan Taylor for their Selfie Summer 2017 Collection and oh man, I’m in love. There’s cremes, shimmers, tiny flakies. Just, everything one could possibly want for summery shades! This is going to be photo-heavy, so I’m just going to get right to it, yeah?

There are six gorgeous shades that you can get in either duos or individually, as well as a top coat and base coat that transform the polishes into an almost gel-like formula without any lamp! They also sent me a cute selfie stick to capture all of my adventures out in the world, but if we’re being honest, I work from home and I don’t leave my house often so it’s not going to get a lot of use unless we go on vacation. It’s cute as hell, though. I’ll probably harass the boyfriend for photos with it.

Happy Tuesday, folks! I’m so so so so so behind on editing. Like. I should probably be working on that, but I’ve got so many posts this week, that I ought to at least get one up, right? I was hanging out with my boyfriend earlier at the LAN Center that he works at, and uploaded about 600 photos. Mind you, this is before editing. I save all of the originals just in case, and then narrow them down, and edit them from there. I’m excited, though. This week means that you guys are going to see a TON of gorgeous polishes, from indies and mainstream alike.

I’ve got a few more polishes from Mardi over at The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer for this lovely evening! They’re three holotastic duochromes from her 3rd collection, called the Chosen Collection. They’re gorgeous, and I love that Mardi incorporated suggestions from the members from her fan group on facebook. Small things like that make me absolutely adore her!

“Each of the polishes in this collection were voted on by members of The Howling Boutique’s Wolf Pack group on Facebook. A total of thirty-six colors were narrowed down to twelve via member voting, and from there I picked my favorite seven to make up the final collection. Wolf Pack members then commented with color names and I chose three per polish, before the Pack then voted to choose the ‘winning’ suggestion. Hence the collection’s theme and name (The Chosen).”

Y’all up for a little late night bloggin’? It’s been one hell of a day, my dudes. I clocked out this evening, and went to stop by the LAN center that my boyfriend works at, and find that my rear passenger side window has been completely shattered WHILE IN OUR DRIVEWAY. Neat, huh? And it’s not like someone accidentally threw a ball and it hit. No. Somebody deliberately shattered my window. Luckily, nothing was stolen. I mean, not like there’s jackshit in my car to steal, but still. My amazing boyfriend helped me clean out all of the glass, took me for some tacos, and then sealed up my window until we can get it fixed. And when we got home? He made me a kickass drink. He’s a keeper.

So, on another note, I haven’t had a headache in two days since the daith piercing. AND! It didn’t hurt that bad at all! It was just insane pressure in one precise spot, but other than that, it’s been fine. I haven’t even felt it. It’s like the universe decided that since I fixed the headaches (at least so far), that it needed to throw some other BS my way. THANKS UNIVERSE. LOVE YOU TOO.

ANNNNNYWHO. Remember the awesome MTK Design? Well, Mary has made a limited edition quad of dusty grey thermals that are absolutely TO. DIE. FOR. This whole collection was a happy accident (thanks Bob Ross, that’s the phrase we never knew we needed), and they’re all completely awesome. Seriously.They’ll be available for a week, until Easter (the 16th) and you guys are going to want these. I know y’all understand how much I love greys, and these. Oh man. They’re totally some of my favorites from MTK. She totally outdid herself! So let’s get right in, huh?

Hey y’all! I hope you’ve had a lovely week so far! I uh… my days are still completely off. So, Monday, I worked until 11pm. I clocked back in yesterday at 5am (by choice, I did the trade) and then out again at 1pm. I tried to nap, and it just didn’t happen. I don’t know. I’m a total sun’s up, I’m up kinda gal, and we have blackout curtains but they didn’t help one bit. I managed to pass out on the sofa later in the evening while watching The Rite AND THEN had to get back up to be at the dentist by 7:30. Like. Why, Jenalyn? Why do you do this shit? </whine> I mean. It was worth it. I had today off, and had the time to sleep a little more AND! I’m getting my daith pierced tomorrow. You guys, I’m so excited. I’ve gone through too much excedrine with no real relief, so I’m hoping this will take some pressure off and allow my head a break from the migraines and headaches. HNNNNNG. Ah, now I’m rambling. Let’s get to the polish, yeah?

The Polish Pickup goes live this Friday at 11am EST, and for my last post on it, I’ve got a gorgeous shimmer from Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer to share!

I’m waaaaaaaaaaaaaay late on posting July’s MMM. But but but we’re gonna say it’s for the sake of no spoilers. So. It works. Or some shit. Totally means this is now safe for eeeeveryone, right?

July was a hot mess. Birthday. GenCon prep. Moving prep. TOO MUCH. Things are settling. Kinda. House hunting blows. Hopefully we’ll have something before the first snowfall.

Let’s take a little trip back to Baroness X‘s July Monthly Mythical Mystery, Mermaid Silk. Demi did a fantastic job with it, truly. And the extras? OH MY YES.

Unicorn pee is even more magical than it sounds. I would love to toss it all over everything in my house, but I’m not entirely sure my boyfriend would go for it.

MAYBE he’d be oblivious enough that he wouldn’t notice it. We may have to try it. For science.
