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 Seas The Day Collection

Happy first Monday of June…JUNE! I know I’ve been talking about moving for the last few months and it looks like things are finally moving. I am packing up tons of stuff including make up and nail polish and it is definitely not fun. The one good thing about all of this is that it is giving me the opportunity to purge so much stuff. I threw out tons of old make up yesterday and it felt good to lighten the load of unwanted and unused items. As much as I have tried to purge nail polish, it has been very difficult because I love so many of them. Today I have a new collection to share with you that will surely became a fan favorite. The KBShimmer Seas The Day Collection is made up of 7 gorgeous pastel/bleached neons and 3 multichrome flakie toppers. Let me show you some swatches below.

Prism Polish UK Winter Is Here Collection

Prism Polish UK Winter Is Here Collection

OK, so by the time you read this, the finale of Game of Thrones already aired. I have a confession to make: I’ve never watched a single episode of this show. I have, however, devoured the books way before the show started. Actually, I have not read the last book, A Dance With Dragons, because I was so annoyed that it took over 5 years to get the next book in the series. I know, it seems kinda lame on my part but I will wait for the next book so I can read them back to back. To be honest, I don’t know how involved George R.R. Martin is with the show, but I wish he had stuck with finishing A Song of Fire and Ice before doing anything else. Well, the reason I am talking about Game of Thrones is because I have I have a collection inspired by Game of Thrones to share with you today. The Prism Polish UK Winter Is Here Collection has a wide variety of finishes and colors with inspiration from the series that fans will appreciate. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte Metallic Collection

Hey! Thanks for joining me on this bright Tuesday morning…if you’re reading this the morning that I posted it, that is. I’ve been having a really interesting time lately using the Marie Kondo method to get rid of clutter in my apartment and also in my personal relationships. Sometimes you have to cut ties with people who don’t contribute any kind of positivity in your life and just serve to bring stress. It’s hard at first, but then you realize just how much they were dragging you down. I did another huge purge of polish just as I received a bunch of new polishes to review but I’m still winning! Today I’m going to show you a selection from the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte Metallic Collection which I really enjoyed! Let me show you some swatches below.

Zoya Barefoot Collection – Summer 2019

Who would believe that it’s almost Summer time around here? Usually by May, I start complaining about the freaking heat but it’s been super mild around here. It’s windy and kind of overcast but I am enjoying it. I bet that it will be scorching at the end of the month when I will be busy packing up and moving because that is just my luck. I had previously mentioned that I did a lot of swatching this past weekend and that included the Zoya Barefoot Collection! Let me show you some swatches below.

Prism Polish UK Santa! I Know Him! Collection

Hello and happy Wednesday dear nail polish aficionados! Over the weekend I swatched about 40 bottles of polish and I just felt that my nails and hands felt raw so I ended up filing my nails down to nubs and it feels great. Back in my blogging prime, I used to swatch 30-40 bottles a day on the weekend with no ill effects, but those days are long gone. Due to the blog issues I had earlier last month, I fell behind with my reviews, but now I’m going to work hard on catching up. Today I have the Prism Polish UK Santa! I Know Him! collection to share with you so let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “Prism Polish UK Santa! I Know Him! Collection”

KBShimmer Suns Out Collection

KBShimmer Suns Out Collection

Happy first Monday of May! What’s going on with you lately? I’ve still been working on getting all my ish together so that I can hopefully be out of my place by the end of the month. Even though I’ve been changing my ways a lot in the last year and have gotten rid of so much junk, it’s amazing how much stuff we keep that we don’t really need. The process of going through stuff and getting rid of the things I don’t need is very cathartic even though it’s super time consuming. Anyway, today I wanted to share with you some swatches of the KBShimmer Suns Out Collection which is made up by 9 stunning tri-thermals. Let me show you my swatches below.
