Happy Monday loves! I’m sorry for the absence, I kinda took the last few days to relax and sloth it up while the boyfriend was away for work. Many tub journeys were had, I can tell y’all that. But he’s back, and my heart is full. Ready to get back into our normal routine, y’know? I’m back to start the week off with some gorgeous summery, springy, pastely neons!

A few weeks ago, I shared the first Spring trio from JulieG, so now we’ll go ahead and take a look at the second one. These colors are actually quite friggen pretty. I’m a broken record, I know, but cremes aren’t my thing. Usually. These are slowly helping to change my mind (well, these and our beloved indies).

Purchased by me.

Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I’ve shared something I purchased, huh? Even better, this is a new-to-me brand! I had the chance to pick out some KBShimmers last year when I won Naked Without Polish‘s giveaway, but honestly hadn’t worn them yet between moves and swatch fests (no complaints, please don’t get me wrong!). I continued buying all things pretty because hot damn, y’all know I love me some pretty polishes, and I clearly have no self-restraint. They’ve got their very own shelf in one of my helmers and I make sure they’re tucked in properly each night before bed. I’m a good polish hoarder like that.

Annnnnnnd moving on…

When the Nauti by Nature collection came out, I snagged the 6 holos so damn fast that my bank account didn’t know what hit it. They’re just so pretty, and honestly unique. Holographic polishes are still my favorite, and I’ll keep buying them, even if I may have dupes, but these. These are such rich and vibrant shades, I couldn’t resist. I didn’t have these exact colors, sooooo they came home with me. It’s bad for my wallet, living in the same town as KBShimmer. Seriously. I’m glad I have my car up here now. I can sneak to pick up an online order without my boyfriend having to take me. IT. IS. GLORIOUS.

Afternoon, loves! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend and that if you made it to Polish Con in New York, you had an amazing time! For this lazy Sunday, I’ve got a new-to-me nail polish brand to share AND they were at PC yesterday. Man. I’m so bummed I didn’t get to go, but I’ll be at the Chicago one in September for sure and I hope to see alllll y’all then!

Hey y’all! Happy Friday! I know I’ve been quiet all week, and I’m sorry for that. I had my first migraine since the piercing (on the opposite side, ugh) and my internal clock is all sorts of off. I had a few days off in a row, but did I sleep properly for it? NAW. Nope, I binge-watched 13 Reasons Why, and me and my feelings are still recovering. I did, however, get to swatch some gorgeous shifty nail polish and even try a little art with them, so I’ve got that going for me.

Connie from Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer has launched a shifty new collection and y’all aren’t going to want to miss it. The indie world is currently obsessing over duochromes and multichromes, and I love seeing makers add their own personal flair to their contributions – what our beloved 77NL maker has created adds something special to the craze.

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.

Y’all. It’s Monday. I think. Probably, right? I changed my shifts all around and my brain can’t brain any of this stuff. But! It’s already April, and that means Spring and bright colors and hella rain. I can dig it. With the new month, comes shiny new things and you guys, I’m completely stoked. The lovely gals behind Fair Maiden Polish are helping to host a new monthly lacquer shop called the Polish Pickup. It’s a neat idea because there are monthly themes where folks like you and I get to vote, and then makers can choose to participate if they want. And even better? Shipping is a flat $3 to the US and Canada. So, with all of the different creations, you can pick which ones you want, and then the gals over at FM will ship them your way after the preorder window.

The theme for April is famous works of art, and all of these makers completely outdid themselves. I’ve got a few to show y’all over the next few days, but first, let’s take a look at Northern Star Polish‘s contribution!

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!

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.

Happy Monday, my little nerdlings! It’s currently raining something fierce and I’m stayin’ in my pajamas all day, not worrying about a damn thing. Well, other than the busy blog week that starts today. You guys. I know I was quiet last week, but oh my god, I’m about to make up for it. I’ve got 6 posts ready to go for the week, with so many Indie Shop goodies!
