Colors by Llarowe – Meet Me Over the Rainbow Bridge


Hi everyone! It’s with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes that I’m writing this post. We had to send my old man Chico to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. I knew he had terminal cancer, I knew he only had about 3 months to live starting 3 months ago, so I knew it was coming but it’s still so hard. For the last 12 years we were best buddies, inseparable, he always being my shadow. I know he’s better off, pain free, running and playing with his big sister Pepper at the bridge waiting there for me. RIP Chico ♥♥

Top Shelf Lacquer – Resistant To Magic // December 2018 Polish Pickup ‘Enchanted Forest’ Theme


Hi everyone! My last blog post was my monthly blogger collaboration post and I used this Top Shelf Lacquer polish as the base of my stamping. This polish is so gorgeous, I had to take the time to showcase this one all by itself as well!

I just bought this from a mystery grab bag of past Polish Pickup items from the Top Shelf website. The mystery bags are still available (as I write this) HERE. You get four past PPU polishes for just $26 plus shipping. That is half off the PPU price! I bought two bags and love all the ones I got! Check out all the other gorgeous stuff at Top Shelf Lacquer HERE. I am not affiliated.

Don Deeva Polish – Purp-A-Traitor


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from Don Deeva. I’ve had this for a couple of months now and finally got a chance to wear it! It’s a hard one to photograph, my pictures don’t do it justice! I think the flash photos show off what it looks like to me but I like it much better in person than my photos are showing off.

You can find the Don Deeva HERE. I am not affiliated.

What Addiction? – Mythical Seas Collection // March 2019


Press Sample 4 (fotor)


#PRSample

Hi everyone! Today I have the upcoming 4 piece Mythical Seas Collection from What Addiction? Polish to share with you! One thing I love about her collections is they are always just 4 polishes each, which is easy on the wallet if you want to get the whole thing! (And I think you may want this whole collection!) My collage below shows her inspiration picture (not mine) along with the bottle shots (mine) for this collection. I think she nailed it!

The Mythical Seas collection will debut on March 31, 2019 at 9am PDT (12pm EDT,  11am CDT, 10am MDT) at whataddiction.bigcartel.com.  They will cost just $9 each or get all 4 for $32!

As usual, I have a lot of photos!

Hi everyone! I wore this polish last week before I broke my nails and had to super nub!! This is the second polish I bought from the brand new Indie Brand MLF Lacquer. MLF stands for Much Love Forever. You can see my post showcasing the other polish I bought HERE. I’m loving these polishes! She will be coming out with a new St. Patty’s Day trio very soon too, so check out her website for that coming soon!

This was a limited edition polish to help baby Jolene’s family during her fight with cancer. Unfortunately she lost her battle but all the proceeds from the sale of this polish has gone to the family’s go fund me page. As of my writing this post, this is still available in limited quantities too! You can find all the current polishes at MLFLacquer.com. I am not affiliated.

China Glaze The Arrangement Collection – Spring 2019 // Swatch and Review


Hi everyone! Sorry I haven’t been around too much lately. I’ve been trying to figure out what’s wrong with my old man Chico so we’ve had a lot of vet visits. We just found out he has a cancerous tumor in his liver so now we are deciding the course of action to take.

Anyway, I am here now with the Spring 2019 China Glaze Collection, The Arrangement. This is a beautiful collection based on flowers and flower arrangements. I love the funny/punny names they came up with.  I bought this collection at PolishPick.com with a blogger discount. I am not affiliated with China Glaze.

This is a long post with alot of photos!!
