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.

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.

Day two of my lead up to PPU posts and I have some amazingness to show you. Ok, so if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know how much I love KBShimmer so this month is no different. Not only did we get a stunning and fiery polish but we also got possibly the most amazing sugar scrub they have ever put out. I am not kidding here people…like I will buy a back up. KBShimmer Light My Fire is a dark polish with a gorgeous fiery magnetic effect that I know you will love. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Woo hooo! PPU is coming up this Friday so here I am starting off the week showing you some pretties that you will be able to pick up once the shop opens up. The inspiration this month is Halloween, so you know that people are going to pull out all the stops and blow us away. If you’ve already seen all the posts about what will be offered, you know that our wallets are in for a shock. Today I am sharing with you Music City Beauty You Don’t Know Jack! which is a holographic polish with a dark smoky black base which a scattering of flakes. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
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.
Well, it seems like a hot minute since I posted but it hasn’t been that long. I think that all the rush of the Christmas holiday just caught up to me and stuff just fell by the wayside. It also did not help that my nails kept breaking and I had to just buckle down and swatch with shorties. Since my move, I am still working on trying to get my perfect set up for swatching and taking pics so please cut me some slack. Since this Friday is the first Friday of the month, Polish Pick Up will be wowing us with tons of pretties. Today I have KBShimmer I Need Space to share with you as well as another glorious sugar scrub. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Things are moving along nicely blogwise and I’m so happy to have this outlet once again. Since Polish/Indie Pick Up starts tomorrow, I have another awesome polish and bath product to show you today. KBShimmer The Brite Stuff is a super fun thermal crelly and it is paired with a juicy popping bath powder. Before I give you all the details, let me show you some swatches and a quick video below.

This weekend I watched my nephews and they were sick so of course, now I’m sick. Ever since Vincent started school, I feel like he is always sick. Then Jonas gets sick…and then we all get sick. I have a pretty nasty cough going and my head is throbbing, so I’ll just have to rely on Theraflu to get through the next few days. I can’t believe that this is the last week of February because I have some work deadlines coming up for month end. The good thing about month end is that we have yet another Polish Pick Up coming up. Today I have KBShimmer The Kid to share with you so let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer The Kid – PPU March 2019”
I think that I have finally gotten through all of my untried Polish Pickup purchases! I am really going to try to not purchase more until I get through all of the things I have purchased recently. Well, I did buy a couple of polishes from February PPU so they technically aren’t mine yet so they don’t count. Today I am going to share Polished For Days Little Sea Spies with you, and I hope that you like it as much as I did. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “Polished For Days Little Sea Spies – PPU October 2018”
Since it’s barely the 6th of the month and I already purchased 6 polishes, I’m trying to get through my untrieds so I don’t feel extra crappy for being a failure at limiting my polish purchases. I think that if I keep my purchases to just these 6 polishes for the month I will feel ok, but I really need to get better about buying stuff. I feel like I’ve pretty much curbed my make up spending so now I need to focus on polish. I am definitely purchasing less, but I shouldn’t be buying ANY when I have so many untrieds. Well, today I pulled out one of those untrieds! JReine Original Lust was a purchase from back in October 2018. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
