When you think of Batman, Wonder Women, the Avengers and the Hulk , you think of hero and superpower, well when self proclaimed ‘nerd’, Quidasha Wright, hears those characters she thinks nail polish. Quidasha Wright, maker and owner of Nerdy Nails Cosmetics decided to take her love of all things comics and combine it with her other love, nail polish. Nerdy Nails Cosmetics is a hand-made, cruelty free and 5- free brand out of Charlotte, NC creating “Polish You Deserve”!
Nerdy Nails Cosmetics is currently under construction and will be launching in the very near future. In the meantime, you can check out swatches on IG and be sure to tune in to my Up Close & Personal 2.0 live Facebook interview with Quidasha, Thursday, March 22nd at 8pm est on my Facebook page (link below).
These polishes are hot off the press and will be available in the shop shortly. For now you can check a few of what will be available.
A fairy, or faery, is a type of mythical being or legendary creature often described as supernatural. Faeries are generally thought to be tiny, winged humans having magical powers, think of Tinkerbell, if you will. But faeries aren’t just for folklore, kids story books and movies, now as adults we can embrace our love for faeries too!
I am so excited to share the upcoming collection from Pretty Beautiful Unlimited, Do You Believe in Faeries? This 8 piece collection features multichrome, holo, jelly, crelly, thermal and chameleon pigments which, I’m sure can imagine by now are… MAGICAL! just like their inspiration.

Hey Sugas! Did you know that Tonic released 3 new polishes March 1st? Are you on the fence about if you ‘really need’ them? If so, I’m here to bring you up to speed and dispel any apprehension you may have.
Taffeta, Butterfly Leaf, Chasing Concrete are the newest Tonic creations to hit the indie market and per the usual from the brand, they did so in a big way! So that takes care of answering question #1. I’m gonna let the swatches take care of the 2nd one.
Anyone else over this whole time change thing? Ugh 😑! Like I know it’s something that happens twice a year for longer than I’ve been alive but that doesn’t make me feel good this morning as I sit in the bed and literally can not find the energy to get up and get started with my day. Ugh! My energy didn’t get the time change memo.
If you could see my face right now you’d know exactly how I’m feeling. I know it will take a few days to get adjusted to losing sleep but in the meantime, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. Perhaps go to bed earlier? Meh. In all likelihood, probably not.
Thank goodness, WordPress has an app and I can blog from my phone because if not… well… you probably wouldn’t be getting this already late post until the early afternoon.
Today I have the COTM Duo, Assassin’s Creed Origins trio and Fantasmic Flakies Facebook Group Custom (group membership required) from Bee’s Knees!

You may be asking yourself, “Krystal, where are you going with this?”
No, I’m not naming animals at the zoo nor am I going to discuss how cute they are….even though they are. What I am going to do is spotlight the danger they are in.
These are just a few of the “critically endangered, endangered and vulnerable” animals the world has according to A-Z Animals. And it’s time, time to take a stand and put an end to the devastation that we are causing to our animal friends. Let’s not add any more animals to the list of extinct animals including:
- Sabre-Toothed Tiger
- Stellers Sea Cow
- Woolly Mammoth
Endangered – (of a species) seriously at risk of extinction.
Extinct – (of a species, family, or other larger group) having no living members; no longer in existence.
Can you image? A world with no more animals? Keep reading to find out how you can join the efforts to help put an end to endangered animals.

I think we can all identify with 11 year old Riley Andersen of Minnesota as she navigates through the 5 emotions of joy, sadness, fear, disgust and anger, when she and her parents move to San Francisco for her father’s new business.

Ms. Sparkle, created and owned by Simone is a hand blended, 5-Free Nail Polish & 3D nail art supplies out of the Netherlands. Although she ship worldwide, Ms. Sparkle can also be found state-side at Beautometry.

Hey Suga! You may or may not know that when I first started my blog, I had 2 Q&A/interview series, Center Stage (for swatches/bloggers) and Up Close and Personal (for indie polish makers), and over time I cancelled them on my blog to make way for my reviews. Well….I started to miss these series because I really enjoyed the opportunity to get to know folks in the indie nail polish community.
Fast forward to March 2018 and I am so excited to announce that I am bringing the series back for a LIVE FACEBOOK 2.0 version!!! Yep, I am taking Center Stage and Up Close & Personal to the next level. It will still have the same feel and flow but with an upgrade. The interviewee will join me for a live broadcast Q&A AND the audience… you guys, will have an opportunity to ask those burning questions that you’ve always wanted answers to. Also, it’s not just limited to polish makers but to ANY type indie maker! This includes but not limited to vinyl, wax, lotions, soap, latex barriers, etc. AND… Center Stage is now focused on nail addicts and enthusiasts alike in addition to swatchers/bloggers/vloggers. So if you, or someone you know would like to be featured, please contact me! Again, these interviews are exclusive to my facebook page (link below), not IG or YT.
That said, I have the privilege to announce that I’ll have the sassiest polish maker of them all, Carrie Duffy, this Wednesday, March 7th, 2018 at 8p est. We will not only be discussing her upcoming release, which I have featured today, but the scheduled hour is sure to be filled with laughs, good times and maybe even some spoilers and behinds the scenes sneak peaks.
Hey Suga!!! I had the amazing opportunity to swatch and review a few polishes from a ‘new to me’ brand, Dip into Pretty. Before we turn it over to the swatches, let’s find out about the brand.
As a lover of pedicures, founder Kat de Haen found a way to make them better!! “Frustrated by the restrictive nature of traditional toe separators, Kat’s “aha” moment came when she realized that she could cut the traditionally linked separators into individual ones. These individual separators were not only comfortable, but they allowed Kat the mobility she needed to get on with her day without ruining her pedicure.”
“Inspiration struck once again when Kat came across her daughter’s art supplies and had the idea to use gems to decorate the separators on her newly freed toes. Her professional background in product development for the beauty market helped Kat recognize that this was an idea with real potential.”
And as you may have guessed, Dip into Pretty®—the new, glamorous toe separator—was born and the rest is history as they say. Fast forward to day and Dip into Pretty has added polish to their product line. Currently, they offer 6 – 5 Free, Vegan Friendly and Cruelty free colors and today I have 3 of they featured here.
