KBShimmer Enchanted Forest Collection

KBShimmer Enchanted Forest Collection

 

Last night when I was sleeping, I kicked my blanket off and slept without it. Yep, Spring is just around the corner here in California. I mean, it was in the high 70’s over the weekend so I know that the days of bundling up and wearing cozy jackets and sweaters is pretty much over. As someone who loves California Winters and absolutely detests Summer, I am very sad. But you know what’s helping with my seasonal sadness? A NEW KBSHIMMER COLLECTION! If you want to see some awesome new polishes, join me below for my swatches of the KBShimmer Enchanted Forest Collection. Continue reading “KBShimmer Enchanted Forest Collection”

Music City Beauty Edge of Glory – HHC February 2021

 

Hello friends! I am so glad Friday is here because I’m really looking forward to relaxing this weekend. I just want to completely veg out and not think about anything. I am also excited about binging a bunch of shows this weekend so I’m sure my couch will have a permanent Cynthia-sized indentation. Today I am going to be sharing swatches of Music City Beauty Edge of Glory which will be able through Hella Handmade Customs this month. Let’s take a look at my swatches below before I give you all the details.

Zoya Naturel 4 Collection

Zoya Naturel 4 Collection

 

Hi again! So in a weird cleaning fit, I misplaced my SD card that had all my pictures for this collection. I’m such a weirdo sometimes. It’s actually not the first time that I do this, so I’m going to make it a point to download pictures to my computer as soon as I take them to avoid this in the future. Today I want to share my swatches of the Zoya Naturel 4 Collection with you so let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “Zoya Naturel 4 Collection”

KBShimmer I Can Sea Clearly Now – PPU February 2021

KBShimmer I Can Sea Clearly Now – PPU February 2021

Hello on this first day of February. One year ago, our lives started to turn upside down due to the pandemix and I’m sad to say that we are still on that struggle bus. I hope that things start to get better for all of us. I am hopeful but still incredibly disappointed by the behaviors I see. Anywho, I really hope that things turn around. I haven’t been much in the mood to swatch and play with polish except for the random mani or swatch. Well, today I am going to be sharing with you the polish I’ve been wearing for the last week. KBShimmer I Can Sea Clearly Now is such a chameleon polish that I know you will love. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer I Can Sea Clearly Now – PPU February 2021”

KBShimmer Rose Glow – PPU January 2021

KBShimmer Rose Glow – PPU January 2021

 

It’s January first and it feels like just any old day. I think that’s pretty normal for the kind of year we have had, and sadly I don’t think that things will get much better at least for another 6 months at the very least. I am hopeful, but I’ll just have to wait and see. Since today is the first Friday of the month, PPU is open for business. Today I’m going to be sharing with you KBShimmer Rose Glow and the corresponding sugar scrub in the scent Feeling A Little Salty. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Cat & Pajamas – PPU December 2020

KBShimmer Cat & Pajamas – PPU December 2020

We are nearing the end of 2020 which has been a complete disaster in my mind. It has been a year of loss and frustration and we have all had to adapt to this new “normal.” I don’t know about you, but I’m hoping and praying for things to improve soon. It is only fitting for December’s PPU theme to be “Everything is fine.” KBShimmer Cat & Pajamas is a lovely shade that I am sure you will like for those palate cleanser days but when you still need a little something extra. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Love At Frost Sight Collection

KBShimmer Love At Frost Sight Collection

Hey, guess what? I’m on vacation this week which means that I am going to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for the next 5 days. Actually, that sounds like all of 2020 so far, but at least I can sleep in and not worry about being late to work. I’ve been working a lot lately so I decided to take 3 days off and combine them with the Thanksgiving break. I really am going to try to enjoy this week off by doing some reading and probably some organizing of my polish. This weekend I ended up doing a bunch of swatching and today I have the KBShimmer Love At Frost Sight Collection to share with you. Let’s get this show on the road!

Girly Bits And Gaia Wept – PPU July 2020

Girly Bits And Gaia Wept – PPU July 2020

Hey all! I have a bunch of swatches of polishes that I never got around to posting about because life sometimes just ruins all your plans. Amirite? I’ve been blogging since 2011, and I am ashamed to admit that this is the first time I have purchased a Girly Bits polish. I know…it’s unforgivable! Pam is such a classy lady and such a beloved maker in our community so this is long overdue. As usual, now I want eerrrything she comes out with so I need to calm down and realize I don’t have unlimited funds.  I picked up Girly Bits And Gaia Wept during PPU Rewind month which was in July, and I’m super glad I pulled the trigger because this polish is stunning. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Prism Polisk UK This Is Halloween Collection

Prism Polisk UK This Is Halloween Collection

I have a huge confession: I have never watched A Nightmare Before Christmas. I know, I know! I don’t really have an excuse and I have always meant to watch it, but I always end up putting it off. I think that during the short Thanksgiving break, I will make a point to watch it because it seems to be so loved by so many people. Well, today I have a nail polish collection that uses A Nightmare Before Christmas as its inspiration. The Prism Polish UK This Is Halloween Collection is made up of 5 shades that I have swatched for you below. Let’s check them all out. Continue reading “Prism Polisk UK This Is Halloween Collection”
