Moore Swatches: Road to Polish Con (RTPC) New York Spring 2018 – Week 6

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***

Alas, Friday is again upon us and Fri-YAY is always the best day! For me, it’s the end to a long busy work week and the beginning of rest and relaxation. More importantly, it’s a friendly reminder to pick up the Week 5 RTPC from Kathleen & Co. and Sassy Cat Lacquer.

But fear not, we only just about 1/2 way done with RTPC! We are knocking on the door of week 6 which features a ‘new to me brand’, Takko. Are you ready to be taken to a beautiful fairyland? I hope the answer is ‘yes’ because that’s what is in store.

Moore Swatches: Lemming Lacquer – Ruth’s Alternative Caring Collection and Springtime in Faerie Anniversary Quad

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***

So Jason and I played hookie from work yesterday and had a date day. I just love spending time with him, we have the best time and most of time we do NOTHING!!! We sit home, watch movies and pig out on take-out and junk food. Now this is nothing different from any other day but we get to enjoy it WITHOUT the kids. No ‘mommy’ this and ‘daddy’ that… #winning! 

The best part of the day was….. I got to take a nap! Yep, a nap in the middle of the day! After eating I caught the itis and was knocked out on the couch for what felt like 15 mins but Jason says it was about an hour and a half. I’m still giving him the side-eye on that one. But nonetheless, I felt great when I woke up.

One would think that I would have worked on this post yesterday, but no, I am scrabbling now trying to get it up as the 12 featured polishes release TOMORROW!!!

Today I have the Ruth’s Alternative Caring Collection and Springtime in Faerie Anniversary Quad from Lemming Lacquer.

Enjoy! (more…)

Moore Swatches: Bee’s Knees Lacquer – Yellow Polish Lovers Facebook Group Custom, April COTM Quad and New Arcana Trio

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***

The days of speakeasies, flappers and the Charleston may be that of the past but the ‘slang’ of the era still lives on. The phrase ‘the bees knees’ may not be found in the dictionary but after many google searches, I found the following ‘definitions’, something or someone excellent, surpassingly wonderful, or cool, simply put, it means ‘the best’!

Now I’m not sure if that had anything to do with why Sarah decided to name her brand ‘Bee’s Knees Lacquer’, but I do know that’s what you’re gonna get, the best!

Today I have 8 polishes from Bee’s Knees, the Yellow Polish Lover’s Facebook Group Custom, which is currently available, April COTM Quad and the New Arcana Trio are yet to come!Enjoy….

Moore Swatches: Shinespark Polish – Radical Flakies Collection

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***

Hey Suga!!! Today I have the upcoming collection from Shinespark, the Radical Flakies Collection. Out of curiosity, I looked up the word ‘radical’ and one definition is, “extreme, especially as regards change from accepted or traditional forms”. This really stuck out to me because this collection embodies that very meaning. In addition to that, the term ‘rad’ or ‘radical’ was made popular in the 80’s to describe something that was awesome. The 80’s was also very well-known for neons.

So if you take all that info, I gave you, what might one conceive this collection featured???

Yep, you guess it! NEONS!!! But not any type of neons! Remember… they are radical and the collection name also had ‘flakes’ in it?  These polishes are jelly based as filled with holo micro glitters. See, told ya’… radical!

Enjoy…

Moore Swatches: Colors by Llarowe (CbL) – 24K Magic April 2018 HHC

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***

“Twenty four karat magic in the air
Head to toe so player
Uh, look out!”

Now that I’ve got you singing, let’s talk quickly about the extremely talented artist, Bruno Mars. Born October 8, 1985 and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, into a family of musicians, Peter Gene Hernandez aka Bruno Mars, is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and dancer.

Bruno Mars has brought us hit after hit including, “Grenade”, “The Lazy Song”, “Marry You”, “Count On Me”, “Finesse” and of course, “24K Magic”

I was so excited when Leah Ann of CbL decided to use 24K Magic by Bruno Mars as her inspiration to create her April custom for Hella Hademade Creations (HHC) formally Hella Holo Customs.

Starting this month, April, HHC has done a complete revamp of the way they bring us their group customs. Each month at least 6 makers will make 1 polish based on the theme they have chosen. So you can bet that we will be seeing more classics, from CbL and Bruno Mars. Sales will run the 14th-21st of each month and to cut down on shipping, polishes will be sold from the Hella Handmade Creations online store.

Moore Swatches: LynB Designs – Let’s Be Frank Part 1

***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***

Hey Sugas! Where are all of my diehard Lisa Frank fans at??? I’m talking posters on the wall, folders in the trapper keeper, pencils and notebooks in the backpack fans. Like your whole entire back to school experience revolved around all things Lisa Frank kinda fans. If you were born in the 80s and raised in the 90s then your hands should be up! That’s right raise those hands even if your sitting in a cubicle at work or in the doctors office at an appointment, raise them high. Don’t be ashamed…lol! 

Lisa Frank was all about bright, bold, in your face colors and animals! Even the children of today know about Lisa Frank as the brand has continued to blaze an iconic trail.

Today I have the 1st of the 2 part collection, Lets Be Frank from LynB Designs. The entire set will feature 10 polishes, 5 releasing on April 13th, which I have for you today and the other 5 releasing April 27th which I will have up in the upcoming weeks. 

So sit back, and put on your N’Sync cassette tape in your Walkman as we take a stroll down memory lane.
