KBShimmer Suns Out Collection

KBShimmer Suns Out Collection

Happy first Monday of May! What’s going on with you lately? I’ve still been working on getting all my ish together so that I can hopefully be out of my place by the end of the month. Even though I’ve been changing my ways a lot in the last year and have gotten rid of so much junk, it’s amazing how much stuff we keep that we don’t really need. The process of going through stuff and getting rid of the things I don’t need is very cathartic even though it’s super time consuming. Anyway, today I wanted to share with you some swatches of the KBShimmer Suns Out Collection which is made up by 9 stunning tri-thermals. Let me show you my swatches below.

Blog Sale Update – 15% Off

Blog Sale Update – 15% Off

Hello fellow polish friends.

Now that my blog is back up, I am really going to focus on selling as much of my stash as possible in the coming weeks. I haven’t given you all many details about what’s going on with me, but it is likely that I will be “displaced” for a few months starting in June. I have to line up some temporary housing while my place gets some extensive work done. This means I will only be able to take essentials with me and will have to put the rest in storage for a while. Faced with this prospect, I decided to downsize in basically every area of my life. These last few months, I have been able to sell 2 full melmers worth of polish which is amazing. Thank you to all who have purchased from me in the last few months and before. It is so appreciated!

If you’re interested in checking out what I have for sale, take a look at my blog sale page. I have tons of indies and mainstream polishes. I am currently offering a 15% discount (excluding shipping) so please let me know if you see anything you’d like to purchase. This will most likely be the last month I run my blog sale until I am once again settled back into my place.

Thanks for all the support!

Lemming Lacquer The Magic of Colored Lights – PPU May 2019

Lemming Lacquer The Magic of Colored Lights – PPU May 2019

Can you believe it’s May already? The weather is slowly starting to warm up, but it’s been weird around here when it’s hot one day and raining the next. On Monday I had some time to go watch Avengers Endgame, and I am definitely not happy with how everything turned out. I know that you’ve probably already seen tons of spoilers, but that is all I’m going to say about that. Since we are entering the first week of May, you know what that means: PPU is here again! Today I’m going to show you a gorgeous topper: Lemming Lacquer The Magic of Colored Lights which I used over a few different colored bases. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

I’m Baaaaaaaaack!

I’m Baaaaaaaaack!

Hey guys! Just a quick note to let you all know that my blog situation has been fixed. I am back to normal thanks to the help of Tiffany and her husband who worked magic despite the fact that I was so disorganized and chaotic. I have missed blogging so much and I have a bunch of stuff lined up to share with you so stay tuned for that. I’ll be posting regularly starting tomorrow.

I want to also thank all the lovely people who reached out to me via email and on Instragram to give me advice or even just some kind words of encouragement. Normally I wouldn’t be so stressed out when something like this happens, but I have tons of turmoil going on in my personal life so this was just added stress.

This blog has been around for close to 8 years and I hope to continue for many more.

Thank you all for sticking with me all these years and through this hiccup.

My Blog Has Been Hacked

My Blog Has Been Hacked

Just a quick note that I have moved my destash to:

https://olaldestash.blogspot.com/2019/04/destashing.html

I am working on removing the malware from my site but it may take time and funds that I am not inclined to spend at this time. I will 100% keep you updated and may occasionally provide updates on the situation over at: https://olaldestash.blogspot.com

I hope you’ll stick with me through this rough spot. Your support and understanding mean the the world to me.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat

I love matte nails but I hate matte nail polish…does that even make sense? I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with matte nail polish because I love the way it looks, but I hate how clumpy and uneven most matte nail polishes end up looking. So what is the solution? A matte top coat, of course! Over the years I have tried TONS of matte top coats and today I am going to share with you the latest one that I have tried. The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat gave my other matte top coats a run for their money. Let’s take a look at it in action. Continue reading “Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat”
