Prism Polish UK – Have A Good Time. All The Time.


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from a ‘new to me’ brand, Prism Polish UK. Yes, this brand is in the UK and yes, shipping to the US is crazy expensive but I saw one I had to have on Facebook and ordered a couple more for the ride. Plus I went in on shipping with someone from FB and that helped offset the cost. Hopefully she’ll find a US stockist soon because I need more of these!!

In the Mood Polish – Hyper, Blissful, Devious, Ditsy // How long do thermals last?


Hi everyone! Today I’m doing a test to see if my oldest thermal polishes still transition. I see the question asked often, “How long do thermal polishes last before they die and stop transitioning?”.  No one really knows the answer. There are some variables that will help them last longer, store in a cool dark place is the big one. Many brands will not mail thermals during the hottest months so they will not get burnt from the heat during transit.

So this collection of thermals is my oldest, let’s see if they still work!

Butter London – Misty Lilac // 2018 Pantone Color of the Year


Hi everyone! It’s been a minute since I’ve bought (or worn for that matter) a Butter London polish. A couple weeks ago they had a 30% off sale with free shipping and they had a peel off gel base I’ve been wanting to try, so along with that, I picked out two sale polishes. This is one of those sale items. I am not affiliated.

Chaotic Glitz – Remember Me // August 2018 Polish Pickup “Musicals”


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from the Polish Pickup last month. The theme was Musicals and this Chaotic Glitz polish was based on the animated movie Coco. I haven’t seen that movie, but if it comes on TV I will definitely watch it!

If you are unfamiliar with Polish Pickup, it’s a web store that opens the first weekend of each month (Friday-Monday) and there are about 70+ indie brands of polish, topcoat, etc available. These items are exclusive to that months Polish Pickup and they center on a theme that is also voted on by the customers. You can read all about it HERE. And yes, this coming weekend is the first weekend of the month so go to the website HERE and make an account and start building your wishlist for this month. The theme for September is Horror Movies! I already have 7 in my wishlist!

This was my first Chaotic Glitz polish. I love the skull label she used to go along with the movie she chose as her theme! I am not affiliated with Polish Pickup or Chaotic Glitz.

Colors by Llarowe – An Angel Has Her Wings // August 2018 Charity Polish for Monica Moran


Hi everyone! The ladies behind HHC had a charity auction last month to benefit the family of Monica Moran, a well known swatcher in the nail polish community, who passed away last Spring. I won two auctions and chose to wear this one first because it is close to the anniversary of my mom’s unexpected passing a few years ago and she is my Angel who has her wings.

Emily de Molly – Mighty Atom // July 2018 HHC Exclusive


Hi everyone! I’m rounding out August with a quick post of my mani using Emily de Molly’s Mighty Atom. This was an exclusive polish for HHC, which is a similar setup to PPU (Polish Pickup). HHC is open each month on the 14th with a week long pre-order of exclusive items from around 25 different makers each month. Being a pre-order, you do have to wait awhile to get the package, they state 3-4 weeks after the pre-order sale ends, but it’s always worth the wait! You can check them out HERE. The polishes for September are already loaded so you can make an account and start adding to your wishlist! (I have 3 in mine already!)

1850 Artisan Polish – Would You Be My New Best Friends? // August 2018 The 13th Doctor Collection


Hi everyone! Today’s mani is from 1850 Artisan Polish. If you want your nail mail to get to you quickly, this is the brand to order from. It was shipped the same day I ordered (within minutes actually) and I had it in my hands within two business days of ordering!! I do live close to the maker, maybe two hours away, but still, that is great service! Plus, you can just tell she loves her work and her brand, the packages are packed with care and attention to detail and she hand writes a thank you note on your packing slip. Plus, I met Nikki at The Indie Shop earlier this year and she is the sweetest person ever!

Anyway, you can find this polish and many more in the online store HERE. I am not affiliated, just a big fan!

POP Polish – Surf Slick // August 2018 Pastel Multichrome Oil Slick Collection


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is a stunner from POP Polish! She recently came out with an 8 piece Pastel Oil Slick Multichrome Collection! This has been a labor of love for the maker and you will also fall in love with these! She has been working on this idea and these polishes for 2 years, perfecting them and making them just right. It was worth all that time, this is a stunning collection! From what I remember from hearing about these, not only is the base multichrome but the shimmer is a different multichrome so you get so many shifts in these!

This collection is sold out at the time I’m writing this post, but they will be back! Stalk POP Polish on Etsy HERE to see when they return.  I just saw on Instagram these should be back in the store on Monday 8/27/18! I am not affiliated. This is a very picture heavy post!!

Press Sample - Pink


Hi everyone! Today I have the latest additions to the Zodiac Series from Geekish Glitter Lacquer! This series has a dedicated polish for each Zodiac sign and a different glow in the dark (GITD) topper for each of the four corresponding Elements. I was excited for these because this is my Zodiac sign, Virgo.
