Esmaltes da Kelly Mahalo – PPU July 2021 (Rewind)

Esmaltes da Kelly Mahalo – PPU July 2021 (Rewind)

Have you ever been wowed by a polish after seeing a million swatches and then when you get it, the polish falls flat on you? This is exactly what happened to mw with Esmaltes da Kelly Mahalo. I don’t know what happened but I just don’t like how it looks on me. I think part of it could be that I didn’t get the very lovely end result that I saw so many people show in their swatches. This is the first time I try out the brand and think that I will buy more–just not if they are magnetics. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Everything Is A-Bouquet – PPU May 2021

KBShimmer Everything Is A-Bouquet – PPU May 2021

 

Happy Friday! I am super excited for this weekend because for whatever reason, I am super exhausted. I’ve been looking forward to the weekend since like Monday–but isn’t that every week? Ha! I’ve been watching a lot of new shows and the latest one that I’m really into is Mare of Easttown; have you checked it out? It’s on HBO Max and it stars Kate Winslet. It’s pretty dark but really good.  I also have tons of swatching to get done this weekend and I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve had such terrible luck lately with nail breaks that I’m relieved to finally have some length. I blame the breaks on the constant cleaning and the fact that I refuse to wear gloves. I guess I can’t complain! For today’s post, I’m going to be sharing with you my swatches of KBShimmer Everything Is A-Bouquet which is available for Polish Pick Up this month. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer With The Band – PPU March 2021

KBShimmer With The Band – PPU March 2021

 

So what is up with it being March already? One year ago we were barely moving into a bunch of lockdowns; I was living in a temporary place while I waited for my apartment to finish up some remodeling work; and I was miserable and terrified about the future. I am finally starting to see some glimmer of hope, and I pray that we keep moving in the right direction. Since we are coming up to the first Friday of March, you know what that means…PPU time. Today I am going to be sharing with you my swatches of KBShimmer With The Band so let’s get this show on the road. Continue reading “KBShimmer With The Band – PPU March 2021”

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 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.
