Colors by Llarowe – Courage, Brains, Heart // April 2014 A Box Indied


Hi everyone! Today I have an oldie to share with you. I got this back in April 2014 as part of “A Box Indied” that Llarowe used to do. I’m wearing this as a tribute to a dear internet friend that is battling cancer. She’s fighting so hard and I pray for her for strength and courage to continue fighting!

China Glaze Holiday 2018 – The Grinch Collection // Swatch and Review


Hi everyone! I have another Holiday 2018 collection to show you today. This time it’s from China Glaze and guess what? There is not a creme finish in the whole collection! We have shimmers and ultra holo glitter and glass fleck and a glitter topper but not a single plain creme! I love it!

I actually found this collection at Rite Aid the other day! I’d never seen a new China Glaze collection there before but I had to clear out the whole display and buy the whole thing! This is another long post with a lot of photos!

EDIT: When I got this collection it wasn’t available at PolishPick.com but it is now! Check them out and tell them I sent you!!

Hi everyone! Today I have my swatch and review of  all 15 polishes in the new OPI Holiday 2018 collection! This is based on the Disney movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. I bought this collection at PolishPick.com. You can find them HERE.

I have a lot to show you and A LOT of pictures! I usually break these collections up into two posts and you will see why here. I like to show off each polish in different lighting so I end up with so many photos! I decided to go ahead and post it all in one post, but it is long! Let me know in the comments if you have a preference for large collections, all in one post or break it up into two.  Let’s get started!

Birthday Mani: OPI 50 Is the New Fabulous with 1850 Artisan Polish Hollywood


Hi everyone! So my birthday was early last week (like over 10 days ago) and I’m just getting to posting my Birthday Mani! My hubby and I went to LA for a couple days to play tourist since we haven’t lived in California too long. We had a fun tour of the city and a great dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse. I took just a few quick photos of this mani before we left town so this will be a quick post.

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!

Geekish Glitter Lacquer – The Virgin & Earth // August-September 2018 Zodiac Series Virgo


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.

The polishes are only available during the month of the Zodiac it’s attached to. So these two will only be available from August 23 through September 22. However, you will see the GITD topper during all the months that are Earth elements.

You can check out Geekish Glitter Lacquer HERE. These polishes were sent to me to swatch and give an honest review.
