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!

You guys. We made it through a Monday. And some of us even did it without naps. Shoot, if you took one, though, you still did the thing and I am still proud! Today is the kind of Monday that felt like a weird Thursday with no end in sight. Truly frightening, right? YEAH.

This evening, I’ve got two gorgeous Literary Lacquers to share with you lovely nerds. They’re going to be reopening on June 23rd at 12p MST with 24 returning favorites, 1 group custom, 1 GWP, and 3 new core polishes. I have a few posts set up to share my swatches, but tonight we’ll take a look at 2 of the returning shades! Another one that’s coming back is Long May She Reign, which was on my blog back in October, and I’m going to be heavily judging y’all if you don’t have it already. When the shop opens, it won’t be a restock situation – it’ll stay open and items will be continuously restocked as needed.

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!

Okay, this post is about to be one big hot mess featuring some pretty shifty toppers. I have either three or four posts queued, but this is going to be the big one. We’re going to start this week off with a bang! The lovely Issa from Starlight Polish contacted me a few weeks about some upcoming releases and y’all. They’re divine. So let’s get right in!

Happy Monday, folks! I have recently been informed that it is Memorial Day, and I hope that everyone is having a lovely day resting and taking the time to remember our fallen military folks. I’m scheduled to work today, but that’s totally fine with me. Overtime and the ability to be lazy in my favorite pajama pants along with a very yummy coffee-scented wax melting in my warmer. All in all, not bad!

For this evening’s rambly blog post, I’ve got a new-to-me brand to share with y’all, and I’m super excited. Tee M. from Necessary Evil Polish sent me some of the polishes that she’s got in her shop on Etsy. Her brand is Necessary Evil Polish, and oh man. These are fantastic. I love the idea behind the brand, too. Tee’s motto is that nail polish and lacquer are an accessory that every gal needs, and our quest to own all of the colors becomes an evil obsession (I SO can confirm!), hence the name, Necessary Evil Polish. I love it! And there are cute little skulls on the bottles. Makes my dark little weirdo heart happy. Let’s get into it, yeah? Yeah!

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!

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.

Wait wait wait wait wait. Day blogging? Again? YEAH MY DUDES. I’ve got a lame horror movie playing, a diet coke in hand, some fantastic wax melting, and I’m bundled up since Narnia is now actually WAY too cold, so why not blog it up?

I’ve got a sassy little collection that I know y’all are gonna love. Allison of le polish has created these 4 gorgeous polishes inspired by the TV show Daria. Which, by the way, I totally need to go back and rewatch. It’s been WAY too long since I’ve seen any episodes. I’m pretty sure the show kickstarted my sarcastic sense of humor. I can dig it. If you’d like to see more, just keep reading! I’ve got a ton of photos and gifs to share, and I know y’all are gonna love every bit of it!

Y’all. Brace yourselves. This is going to be a super long post. But before we jump into that, can I just take a moment to whine? 5 nails broke yesterday. My last bra had the underwire come out. My webhost has been undergoing server maintenance off and on for the last 24 hours.  And to top that all off? I’ve slept maybe 3 hours over the last few days thanks to some WICKED heartburn (my prescription had run out and I was too chicken to call for a refill from the doctor. yeah. I’m an adult). I just had the last two days off, and I’m already counting down till Wednesday. Okay. Okay. Whine session over. I’ve got 11 pretties to share with y’all from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, and all of them will be at The Indie Shop tomorrow in Atlanta!

Man. 2016 is ending pretty damn poorly, isn’t it? Carrie today. George Michael two days ago. All of the other celebrities that taught us that it’s okay to be a little weird and sad that we lost throughout the year. My heart aches. It’d be a lie to say that I haven’t had my favorite George Michael songs on repeat since Christmas.

Ah, but I digress. We’re here for polish! It can’t bring folks back, but nail polish calms me and brings me a little peace and sanity. So, that’s what I’ve been doing the last few days. Polishing my nails non-stop. Hopefully I’ll be able to get quite a few posts up this week. HOPEFULLY.
