KBShimmer Moumantai – PPU October 2020

KBShimmer Moumantai – PPU October 2020

Excuse me, weekend…where did you go? I have to admit that the last few weeks have gone by in a blur because I am ridiculously busy at work. I love being busy, but it has also been a bit overwhelming. The good thing is that I have great colleagues to collaborate with so I know eventually things will fall into place. This week is also my birthday week! I’m turning 41 on the 22nd and it feels a little weird. I almost feel like 41 feels more real than 40–does that even make sense? I had to make an effort to swatch this weekend because I had so much to do and I hope that I can catch up this following weekend. Today I am sharing with you an awesome polish and scrub from one of my favorite brands (probably, really, my favorite brand but you know how we try not to play favorites with our polish babies!). KBShimmer Moumantai is a stunning shade that I know you will love. I also have a new sugar scrub scent to talk about so let’s get the show on the road.

JReine Land Of The Lost – PPU September 2020

JReine Land Of The Lost – PPU September 2020

I can’t believe it’s September already. As I continue to navigate working on my health, weight loss, pandemic anxiety and all that other stuff that has us down, I have been playing with polish so much. Unfortunately, I don’t usually get past painting my nails and taking the pictures. Lately I have found the whole process of editing a couple of pictures from the dozens I took truly exhausting, but Polish Pickup never fails to get me excited to share with you guys. The theme for September is Halloween so there will be tons of fun shades and items to choose from. Today I will be sharing with you my swatches of JReine Land of The Lost which draws its inspiration from Marie Laveau. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer He Slimed Me – PPU & IPU August 2020

KBShimmer He Slimed Me – PPU & IPU August 2020

Can you believe August is right around the corner? I’m actually in complete disbelief because it has not felt like Summer at all in Southern California. In fact, the weather has been rather mild and I haven’t even had to use my AC yet…what in the world?? I know 2020 has kind of been garbage all-around, but I sure hope that things start to turn around for all of us. After July’s rewind theme, August is bringing us Weird Science! If you’re old enough, you know you heard that song in your head. Today I’m going to be sharing KBShimmer He Slimed Me and the corresponding sugar scrub. Let me show you some swatches below.

KBShimmer Secret Menu – PPU & IPU June 2020

KBShimmer Secret Menu – PPU & IPU June 2020

Ugh…here I go making excuses as to why I haven’t posted in a month. Well, you may know that I moved into my new apartment on 5/1 so it’s been really hectic. I pretty much moved on my own and it sucked. Since I moved during a difficult time, deliveries of things like furniture took much longer than expected. In fact, I just received the last of my big furniture orders. I do have my bed (which I had to get replaced since it was damaged during delivery) but I have almost everything else. I haven’t been able to really do the small things like decorative touches, but that’s not really a priority right now. As far as polish is concerned, I still have most of my pretties in storage while I wait to set up my Herlmers. Anywho, today I wanted to share a deliciously shifty polish and sugar scrub. Leave it to KBShimmer to ignite my desire to blog and post again! KBShimmer Secret Menu is a beautiful polish that will be available later this week so let me show you some swatches!

KBShimmer Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy – PPU & IPU May 2020

KBShimmer Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy – PPU & IPU May 2020

Hey there, long time no blog! I’ve been absent again because I’ve just been so stressed and anxious about everything going on. On top of that, I am just moving into my new apartment today so I’ve been preparing for that these last few weeks. I am basically furnishing my new place completely and it’s been difficult to get things due to all the shipping delays. I totally understand the delays, but it doesn’t make it any easier. I took a couple of weeks off from work to get all my stuff figured out so I hope that’s enough time. One of the few things that I can still do in quarantine to get my mind of stuff is maintaining my nail routine. I haven’t felt very inspired lately, but I am still taking care of my nails/cuticles. Today I have two new products to share with you: KBShimmer Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy and their new Spun Sugar Scrub. Keep on reading for all the details!

KBShimmer Let It Beetle – PPU & IPU February 2020

KBShimmer Let It Beetle – PPU & IPU February 2020

You’d think that due to the holiday today, I’d be enjoying having a day off to relax; alas, I came down with a nasty cold and have just been hiding out in my den of germs for the last 5 days. I’ve been living off a combination of Nyquil, Dayquil and Theraflu which pretty much knocks me out for hours at a time. I’m not complaining since I 100% need the rest. I’m glad that I got right on swatching these items as soon as I got them because I wouldn’t be getting it done now with the way I’m feeling. For today’s post, I have KBShimmer Let It Beetle and a new Freesia sugar scrub which will be available for PPU and IPU in February. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? – PPU November 2019

So Halloween is in a couple of days…do you have any Halloween plans? I am pretty much over Halloween and am not planning on dressing up or doing anything. Not too many kids come around my neighborhood for candy so I know that if I buy any, I will end up eating it all myself–so I won’t be buying any too much. What is your favorite candy? Not long ago I posted on Instagram regarding controversial candy such as Circus Peanuts, Candy Corn and Bit O’Honey because I wanted to know if you liked them or not. How do you feel about these three candies? Anyway, enough about candy! Today I have Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? to share with you. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Hey there! How are things? I’m doing ok–just chugging along as I watch the year slip through my fingers. Work has been going well so I can’t complain about that.

Since we’re nearing November, you know that Polish Pickup is just around the corner. Today I have KBShimmer The Nothing as well as a new yummy sugar scrub to share with you so let’s take a look!
