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.

Coming off the long weekend felt really nice. I have a lot of stuff going on at work right now which is both exciting and exhausting. I definitely needing the long weekend to recharge and get a burst of energy. I’m glad that the weather is starting to cool off a bit so that my electric bill doesn’t continue to be $200–ha! Today I have another beautiful collection of polishes to share with you. The Prism Polish UK Ocean Wonders Collection has some real stunners that you will not want to miss out on. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “Prism Polish UK Ocean Wonders Collection”
Hey! How’s the scorching heat treating you? I have just about had it with this ridiculous heat wave and hope that we get back down to some reasonable temperatures. I think that the thing I worry most about when we have this type of weather is not so much about how uncomfortable it is, but more about the potential for increased wild fires. It’s absolutely devastating to see people go through it every year and I hope that for the sake of the wild fire potential, we start to cool off some. Today I am going to share with you the Prism Polish UK Bogus Adventure Collection which took me back to how much I loved Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure as a kid. I also am planning to watch Bill & Ted Face The Music if only to feel like I have watched the trilogy. And for Keanu. ‘Cause who doesn’t love Keanu? Anyway, let’s take a look at my swatches below.

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. Continue reading “JReine Land Of The Lost – PPU September 2020”

Wow, posting two days in a row?! I’m on a roll! Actually, I just have TONS of stuff to share with you guys.

How’s your Monday going? I’m chugging along still working on myself and getting organized. I knew that the cool weather was too good to be true so it’s been super hot here in SoCal for the past week. I haven’t been doing much outside lately, like exercising, but I think that it’s time to get my butt in gear. I know I had shared before that I have been working on getting healthy and such so I need to get back on track despite the warm weather. So, for today’s post I have some really fun polishes to share with you from the Prism Polish UK Wizarding Houses Collection and they are all currently available at Color4Nails. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “Prism Polish UK Wizarding Houses Collection”
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.
Hey there! How’s your day going so far? I am doing pretty well, just trying to do what I can to stay sane. Sounds like the story of my life. I’ve been super SUPER busy at work lately so things are good. I know that due to the pandemic, many people have lost their jobs so I feel very fortunate to have had a steady job through all of this. I’ve also been busy getting my home in order since it takes time to find a place for everything and really get everything out of storage. I think that my bedroom is the place that still needs the most work–especially my closet. I literally have not worn normal clothes since like March and pretty much live in yoga pants and comfy tops so my clothes are in utter disarray. I am also losing weight (35 lbs down!) so I don’t know if my current wardrobe will still fit me in a few months. Anywho, it’s a good “problem” to have. I recently spent a good Saturday afternoon swatching a bunch of polishes and one of the collections I swatched is the Zoya Splash Collection for Summer 2020. Let me show you my swatches below.
