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”

Prism Polish UK Re-releases – Color4Nails

Any time that I swatch polishes from the Prism Polish UK line, I always ask myself how Suzie comes up with such gorgeous creations.

Today I have a bunch of pretties that have been re-released and are currently available for purchase over at Color4Nails. These shades range from holos to duochromes to thermals and they are all so fun. Let’s take a look at my swatches–there really is something for everybody!

KBShimmer All The Fall Things Collection

KBShimmer All The Fall Things Collection

Hi everyone! I’ve been out of the nail game lately because I came down with a nasty cold that made me super nervous. Is there anything such as a simple cold this day and age? I immediately feared that it could be COVID so I ended up talking to my doctor about it. I was tested and it came out negative, but it has been weeks that I have been feeling under the weather. I was definitely relieved that I got a negative reading, but it reminded me that we have to be very careful and protect ourselves. I had managed to post my swatches of the KBShimmer All The Fall Things Collection on Instagram, but fell behind on getting my post up. Let me show you some swatches below.

Cadillacquer Color4Nails Exclusive Trio

Cadillacquer Color4Nails Exclusive Trio

Woooooo! This month has be a doozy for me. I am so exhausted but also feeling really great about all the changes that are happening in my life. I know that I mentioned how hard I have been working on turning around my health and get my diabetes under control. Well, I got my A1C test results back and I was at 6.5% which means that in a little over 3 months I got my blood sugar under control! It’s been a lot of work, but I know that I’m worth it. I have had to drastically change my diet and start exercising a lot more so that has definitely been a struggle. Well, besides all of these great things going on in my life, I also have some fun polish to share with you. This Cadillacquer Color4Nails Exclusive Trio has some gorgeous shades that I know you will want to get your hands on. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

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 Piercing Peridot

JReine Piercing Peridot

I am back today with another polish full of OGUP for your viewing pleasure. I kept debating sharing my swatches of these polishes because they are no longer available for sale, but if you’re part of the indie polish community, you know that destashing is a huge part of our community so I think that you have a good chance of finding these on the secondary market if you REALLY want them. You might not like the price, but someone is bound to want to let them go if the price is right. JReine Piercing Peridot is part of the Jelly Jewels Collection and it is another sheer jelly full of unicorn pee. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “JReine Piercing Peridot”
