Static Lacquer – October Polish Pickup

*Press Sample

The theme for this October’s Polish Pickup is Villains. There are many ways you can pick a villain. Stacy chose a classic villain as her inspiration. We’re going to J. R. R. Tolkien’s world of Lord of the Rings! The Lord of Morgul, the Lord of the Nazgûl is one of the chief servants of major baddie Sauron. His famous line “You fool, no man can kill me.” is the quote that gives this polish it’s name. Stacy has made a deep dark polish worthy of it’s inspiration.

How many of you have read the Lord of the Rings books or has seen all the movies? Even though the series was turned into a major motion picture series, for me it will always been connected to books. The inspiration photo is taken from the movie but I also wanted to connect the books to the polish so I pulled my love of books into the nail art. Before we jump into the details and swatch photos, let’s take at look at the photo that inspired No Man Can Kill Me.

I’ve have been playing a game of catch up this week. My husband sprung a Florida getaway on me (isn’t he sweet) to visit family and even though I brought work with me, I never had the time to actually sit down and do the work.

Polish Con is just a few days away! Who’s going? I unfortunately won’t be there but I’m thrilled I was able to swatch the Sassy Sauce Polish exclusives for you. Along with the exclusives, Carrie is also bringing the September 2018 Collection to the event. This is a pretty big release so let’s jump right in.

Sassy Sauce Polish – August 2018 Collection

*Press Sample

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. It has truly been a whirlwind for my family! How about for y’all? Fall is just around the corner and soon everyone is going to be in the pumpkin spice kind of mood. I love fall, coming from Colorado the fall is gorgeous. The mountains start getting their snow peaks but it usually doesn’t get too cold in the Front Range for a little while longer. I’m not a winter person at all but I do love oversized comfy sweaters and a lovely pair of boots!

Before we hit the pumpkin spice of it all, let’s send summer off with another amazing collection from Sassy Sauce Polish!

*Press Sample

Hey y’all! It’s been a little while since we’ve last chat. It has been crazy lately! My husband had to travel for a few weeks for work. On top of that, we’re starting our first year of homeschooling our three boys! I wasn’t expecting the first week of school to be without my support system but it had to be done. Now that we are starting to get the new schedule down (and yay the hubby is home) I was able to sit and actually write up a blog post.

If you’re having trouble placing the name, Kim recently rebranded from Smokey Mountain Lacquers. The duo is the second release under the Music City Beauty label and you’re going to want to add these to your collection.

 

Bluebird Lacquer – August Polish Pickup

*Press Sample

Bluebird Lacquer is also participating in the August Musical theme Polish Pickup! I know you’ve been anxiously waiting to see this polish and I promise I won’t keep you too long before you get to see it. Lou’s inspo is a classic and you’re going to love it. But first let’s do another quick rundown on how Polish Pickup works.

How it works!

Every month a theme is voted on. Then, participating makers, get to work on their inspiration and creations.  While dropping little teasers for us to drool over! The first Friday – Monday of every month is shopping time. Choose from as few or as many brands as you like and shop with the convenience of flat rate shipping.

Overview

Lou’s inspiration is My Fair Lady! I’m pretty sure we all walked around saying “the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain” in our best cockney accent and then finally learning how to speak like a proper lady. I’m not a huge musical fan but I remember watching this with my husband enjoying a good laugh.

Isn’t She Loverly applies like a dream! It’s also so perfectly pigmented it can easily be a one coat polish. The sparkles in this polish catch your eye in every angle and there is always something different to see with the holo, flakies and even a little faux up pigment. It’s a flawless pink that is bright but dusty enough to balance on the skin.

Release Information: Available Friday, August 3rd at 11am Eastern – Monday, August 6th at 11:59pm Eastern on the beautifully redesigned Polish Pickup website . Pricing and cap are marked with the swatches.

Promise Polish – First Look

A few weeks back a friend of mine tagged me in a post from a brand looking for swatchers.  She knows I’m always looking for new brands to try and that swatching has become a big part of my life. I love that my friends are always looking out for me!

Promise Polish is a new to me brand and I was really excited to try out the polish. Deborah sent me three colors to review, two previously released and one brand new release.
