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.

Lemming Lacquer The Birth Of Venus – PPU April 2019

Lemming Lacquer The Birth Of Venus – PPU April 2019

Are there works of art that move you? I feel so lucky that there are so many paintings, sculptures and novels that entrance me and make me believe in a higher power because surely the artist was God-touched to have created such a masterpiece. One of my favorite paintings by Botticelli is The Birth of Venus and I can confirm that the first time I saw it in person, I stood there in awe for a good 30 minutes. Let’s take a look at my swatches for Lemming Lacquer The Birth Of Venus below. Continue reading “Lemming Lacquer The Birth Of Venus – PPU April 2019”

KBShimmer Wave After Wave – PPU April 2019

This week has been a little busy for me so it’s been hard to actually sit down and do some proper swatching after my almost month-long break. I know that it wasn’t really a decision to take that time off since I found myself so sick, but I think it did me a lot of good because now I’m itching to do some swatching and nail art. Since April PPU is right around the corner, this week I’m showing you a few shades that will be available soon. The polish I’m sharing with you today is KBShimmer Wave After Wave so let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer Wave After Wave – PPU April 2019”

Music City Beauty A Beautiful Start – PPU April 2019

Music City Beauty A Beautiful Start – PPU April 2019

Hello friends! I am finally back after almost 3 weeks of being sick. I felt ridiculous being sick for this long, but I just could not seem to shake it off. I still have a minor cough and some annoying congestion, but I feel like I can finally say that I’m feeling much, much better. Although I was sick and wasn’t up for much, I still wanted to swatch and paint my nails but I just didn’t have the energy for it. Now that we’re nearing the end of the month, Polish Pick Up is right around to the corner so today I’m sharing some swatches of Music City Beauty A Beautiful Start so let’s take a look below.

JReine Original Lust – PPU October 2018

JReine Original Lust – PPU October 2018

Since it’s barely the 6th of the month and I already purchased 6 polishes, I’m trying to get through my untrieds so I don’t feel extra crappy for being a failure at limiting my polish purchases. I think that if I keep my purchases to just these 6 polishes for the month I will feel ok, but I really need to get better about buying stuff. I feel like I’ve pretty much curbed my make up spending so now I need to focus on polish. I am definitely purchasing less, but I shouldn’t be buying ANY when I have so many untrieds. Well, today I pulled out one of those untrieds! JReine Original Lust was a purchase from back in October 2018. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

On the heels of showing you the first polish in this fun duo, today I’m going to show you Colors by Llarowe How About A Brownie Dogg? After KBShimmer’s pot inspired polish, a brownie inspired polish seems to hit all the right notes. I do think that Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg made a strange pair, but they sure were entertaining to watch. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Hello friends and Happy New Year! I hope that you had a great NYE and that you are ready for a brand new year full of possibilities.

I finally got a chance to wear some of the polishes that I purchased from October PPU, and I am in absolute love.

Sometimes I have a lot of swatching commitments and sometimes I just decided to take a nail break. Let me show you my swatches of Pahlish Material Emancipation Grill and then we’ll talk about the deets. Continue reading “Pahlish Material Emancipation Grill”
