KBShimmer Something Wicca This Way Comes – PPU & IPU September 2019

Wow, is it really September already? Later this month I will be turning the big 4-0. To tell you the truth, it doesn’t feel like such a momentous occasion since I’ve always felt like an old soul. I’m not expecting any big changes just because I’ll be turning 40, but I do feel like I’ll have to step up my skincare regimen! For today’s post, I have two awesome products to share with you. First up, we have KBShimmer Something Wicca This Way Comes which is a fun and complex magnetic polish. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Mirror Mirror In The Stall – PPU August 2019

The weather is finally starting to heat up here in Southern California which means that I had to get sick. I came down with a cough and cold so I’m feeling extra miserable since it’s so hot outside. I’ve definitely slowed down a lot when it comes to painting my nails because of this and because of how busy I have been lately. Today I’m sharing with you KBShimmer Mirror Mirror In The Stall which will be available soon through Polish Pickup. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Twisting Nether Lacquer Lost Ions – PPU June 2019

Twisting Nether Lacquer Lost Ions – PPU June 2019

I feel like I’ve been sleeping okay lately. I never knew that the whole waking up at 3 am every night thinf is common, did you? I googled it because I feel that I always wake up around 3:00-3:30 am which always leaves me feeling tired. I wonder if I have some sort of sleep disorder? I think it’s time to check in with my doctor! Anyway, today I have another polish that will be available for June Polish Pickup. Twisting Nether Lacquer Lost Ions is a smoky black polish full of iridescent flakes. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “Twisting Nether Lacquer Lost Ions – PPU June 2019”

KBShimmer What Does This Mean? – PPU & IPU June 2019

KBShimmer What Does This Mean? – PPU & IPU June 2019

I know that I talk a lot about the weather because it directly affects my mood, but this time I’m talking about the weather since it’s the theme for June’s Polish/Indie Pickup! I’ve pretty much caught up on my swatching obligations so I’m enjoying just wearing pretty polish for more than a day or two. I actually rounded off my nails so I’ll be sporting that shape for a while. As much as I like my squoval nails, I feel that they are more prone to breaking which will not work well for me during the move. Today I am going to share with you swatches of KBShimmer What Does This Mean? as well as a new scrub for IPU. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

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”

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.

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

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.
