KBShimmer I Just Wanna Fly – PPU April 2021

KBShimmer I Just Wanna Fly – PPU April 2021

 

Don’t telll me that you aren’t humming the Sugar Ray song right now. Although I was born in 1979 and grew up with all that 80’s goodness, I wasn’t a teen until the 90’s and that is when most of my best memories are deeply entrenched. The theme for PPU this most is the 90’s and I was so excited to see what makers would come up with. Today I am going to be sharing with you my swatches of KBShimmer I Just Wanna Fly which, along with a yummy sugar scrub, will be available for purchase this month. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

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 Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy – PPU & IPU May 2020

KBShimmer Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy – PPU & IPU May 2020

Hey there, long time no blog! I’ve been absent again because I’ve just been so stressed and anxious about everything going on. On top of that, I am just moving into my new apartment today so I’ve been preparing for that these last few weeks. I am basically furnishing my new place completely and it’s been difficult to get things due to all the shipping delays. I totally understand the delays, but it doesn’t make it any easier. I took a couple of weeks off from work to get all my stuff figured out so I hope that’s enough time. One of the few things that I can still do in quarantine to get my mind of stuff is maintaining my nail routine. I haven’t felt very inspired lately, but I am still taking care of my nails/cuticles. Today I have two new products to share with you: KBShimmer Fruit Slices, Yummy Yummy and their new Spun Sugar Scrub. Keep on reading for all the details!

KBShimmer Seems Fishy – PPU & IPU April 2020

Hello friends! I hope that you’re doing as well as can be expected in our new reality. I am doing my best to stay home and only go out once a week to get necessities, but it’s definitely hard. I have hope that if we all do our part, we can get through this. Since April is right around the corner, that means that Polish and Indie Pickup are going to be opening up shop this Friday. Today I’m going to be sharing with you my swatches of KBShimmer Seems Fishy which is completely stunning. I have taken pictures in different angles and lighting to show you just how shifty it is. Let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer Seems Fishy – PPU & IPU April 2020”

KBShimmer Sól What? – PPU & IPU March 2020

KBShimmer Sól What? – PPU & IPU March 2020

I know that February is a short month, but I’m still shocked that March is right around the corner. I recently got the news that my place will be ready by May 1st which means that I only have to stay at my temporary place for 2 more months. You have no idea how happy this makes me because I’ve felt displaced since December. It has definitely been rough, but I feel like I am now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel so I just have to wait it out for 2 more months.  So that’s great new for me that has definitely put me in a much better mood–which brings me to other things that put me in good mood: pretty polish! Today I am sharing with you my swatches of KBShimmer Sól What? and their pomegranate sugar scrub. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Let It Beetle – PPU & IPU February 2020

KBShimmer Let It Beetle – PPU & IPU February 2020

You’d think that due to the holiday today, I’d be enjoying having a day off to relax; alas, I came down with a nasty cold and have just been hiding out in my den of germs for the last 5 days. I’ve been living off a combination of Nyquil, Dayquil and Theraflu which pretty much knocks me out for hours at a time. I’m not complaining since I 100% need the rest. I’m glad that I got right on swatching these items as soon as I got them because I wouldn’t be getting it done now with the way I’m feeling. For today’s post, I have KBShimmer Let It Beetle and a new Freesia sugar scrub which will be available for PPU and IPU in February. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Un-brrr-lievable – PPU & IPU December 2019

KBShimmer Un-brrr-lievable – PPU & IPU December 2019

Hi all and Happy December! I hope that you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and that you survived Black Friday/Cyber Monday relatively unscathed. I had one helluva a weekend! I finally moved out of the place I had called home for eons and parted ways with my baby brother (who is 29!). He has been living with me pretty much since he was 18 so I can imagine that it will be a huge adjustment for him. On my end, as much as I love him, I was ready to push him (violently) out of the nest. My current living situation is complicated to say the least and it will be around 4-6 months before I can move in to my new permanent place. Trust me, it’s more messy than you can even begin to imagine. To top it all off, I got sick in the middle of all of this and now I’m a snot-filled mess with a cough that doesn’t let me sleep. As always, the timing is impeccably putrid. Since I don’t have much good news today, I’m just going to get to it and share my swatches of KBShimmer Un-brrr-lievable which is this month’s PPU offering. Let’s take a look! Continue reading “KBShimmer Un-brrr-lievable – PPU & IPU December 2019”

Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? – PPU November 2019

Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? – PPU November 2019

So Halloween is in a couple of days…do you have any Halloween plans? I am pretty much over Halloween and am not planning on dressing up or doing anything. Not too many kids come around my neighborhood for candy so I know that if I buy any, I will end up eating it all myself–so I won’t be buying any too much. What is your favorite candy? Not long ago I posted on Instagram regarding controversial candy such as Circus Peanuts, Candy Corn and Bit O’Honey because I wanted to know if you liked them or not. How do you feel about these three candies? Anyway, enough about candy! Today I have Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? to share with you. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
