Hey Sugas!!! So much going on here in the Queendom, I done forgot to tell you about some good news in my personal world. So before we check ou tthe polish, let me fill you in.
Our son, Xavier, has accepted an employment opportunity as a well-known fast ffod chain. We are so proud of him and this great accomplishment/milestone in his life. I think this calls for a #questionoftheday. What was your first job and how old were you. I’ll go first. I worked at a movie theater when I was 16.
We are officially in the 3 week of school and you guessed it, school is CLOSED!!! Yep, school have been in session for 12 days and they have already been out for 2. Luckily next week is a full week!!!
The girls are well, no new changes for them. They are currently enjoying the 6th and 2nd grade respectively. Just in case you don’t follow me on IG, just a heads up, the Queendom will be on vacation 9/20-9/21 returning to its regularly scheduled program 9/24. But before I skedaddle out of here, let’s check out todays featured collection from Taryn of Anchor & Heart Polish.
On to the polish…..
Today I have the five piece thermal collection from Anchor & Heart Polish inspired by the music of Bon Iver.

Hey Sugas!!! I know many folks look forward to fall/autumn because they love Halloween but I for one, am in great anticipation of fall/autumn because to represents the return of some of my favorite tv shows. While I do indulge in some “reality” tv, it’s shows like Grey’s Anatomy, The Voice, The Resident, Chicago Med, HTGAWM and This Is Us All , that have me sitting in front of the tv like a kid in front of the Christmas tree on Christmas morning.
But for those that get all giddy about Halloween, let’s chat about the Holo-Ween Remix Trio and 6-piece All Holo Eve set releasing this Sunday, September 23 from Pahlish. Shannon has revamped versions of a few of the OG Holo-Ween favorites to bring us “the remix” aka 2.0!
And, as if that weren’t enough, here’s some else fun to look forward to! Boo-Spoke Batches 2018!!!! Special edition Boo-Spoke Batches for Holo-Ween 2018 are all packed with as much shifty, flakie, holo goodness that could fit into each bottle. Each come with a special limited edition magnet featuring an exclusive Boo illustrated by Mr. Pahlish! A new Boo will be available each Sunday for preorder with any available overpour available on 10/28. Be sure to check out the various Pahlish social media platforms (links below) for swatches and visit Pahlish each Sunday for a new Boo-Reveal 9/30 to 10/21! Each will retail for $14 and include a free LE magnet unique to each shade!
Hey Sugas!!! Who’s ready for some HP (Harry Potter) themed customs?! More specifically, because of Sarah’s love of all things HP, these customs are centered around the wand cores. Today I have the 9 polishes from Bee’s Knees Lacquer created for the OG UP Facebook Group and with the new Fantastic Beast movie coming out in November, what better time for these?
Here are a few things to note:
- Customs will be made available through a secret link in the OG UP Facebook Group – so yes, membership is required!
- Undie Promotion* – All order for these during 9/22-10/1 will get the undies for FREE.
- Special Secret Item – Included with all purchases while supplies last!
Hey Sugas!! I wanted to pop in for a sec and let you all know about 2 products that will be available during September IPU. Just in case you missed last months post, here’s the 411.
Indie Pickup (IPU) was created due to the growing popularity, success, increased desire and interest from makers of indie products wanting to join PPU (Polish Pickup). Indie Pickup (IPU) follows the same format as its’ sister site, Polish Pickup, but with a twist. IPU brings exclusive, non-polish items based the same monthly theme of PPU.
Available: once a month, on the third Friday – Monday.
Shipping: All purchases are preorder and will ship approximately 3 weeks after order is placed.
So now that you’re caught up, this month’s theme is….horror movies!!!
Alter Ego has created a soap that’s kinda…. unusual. Why? Because it has the scent of chicken. As soon as I opened the package I smelled Top Ramen Noodles Chicken Flavor. At first I thought, I ‘d never use this but then I thought about how funny it would be as a prank to use on my kids.
They noticed the scent right away and promised they would get me back… lol. This chicken scented soap would be a perfect gift for that prankster in your life. Or…. anyone that loves ramen noodles.
LynB Designs has created a perfume oil that is both light and refreshing yet noticeable and pleasing. I love this scent and wished a had more. A little dab behind the ear lasts all day.
Be sure to add both of these products to your wishlist!
Hey Sugas!!! Today I have a ‘new to me’ brand, Lil Fang Lacquer out of Ogden, UT. Owner and creator, Stephanie Dailey is a certified nail tech and a bada$$ when it comes to making polish.
Her love of nail polish started about 8 years ago when she gracefully fell down the indie rabbit hole, a common story of many of us…. lol 😂. That love then turned into a dream to one day make and start her own polish brand.
Fast forward to present day and here we are. I have to pleasure to share with you 6 of her newest creations. But first I want to share my experience.
Upon receiving my package, Banana Daiquiri, the bottle was busted… thanks USPS and the 1,000,000 degree temp outside in July. I was able to decant a small amount into a mini bottle I had laying around. I reached out to Stephanie and she did send me a new bottle but the polish was so beautiful I couldn’t wait to swatch it, hence the mini bottle in my swatch pictures.
Nevertheless, I have to admit that these shades are outstanding!!! Let’s take a look.

*Shouting* “All rise and hail the Queen of Cremes!!!”
Hey Sugas!!! Please help me welcome back to the Queendom, Jill of Glisten & Glow. Jill continues to reign and hold court with Part 2 of the Mother Earth Collection launching Thursday, September 13th. This 4-piece, jewel-toned quad features some of the most perfect crèmes and the set is a must have as we are ushered into the Fall/Autumn months. This past weekend the east coast was hit with some cooler temps and rain and the only thing that made I bearable was this quad, some feel good music and an extra hot PSL!
Even though I didn’t have the opportunity to review the first installment of this collection, a good friend of mine did. Alicia of Delishous Nail has the Mother Earth Collection: Part 1 featuring Mother Moon, Mother Sky, Mother Sea and Mother Flora on her blog. AND…. they are still available in the shop, so make sure you pick them up too along with a cuticle oil and bottle of top coat… you’ll thank me later!!

Hey Sugas, we made it! It’s Friday!!! I am super pumped to share todays featured quad from Great Lakes Lacquer. But before we check out the swatches, let’s talk about glass.
“She’s like broken glass. Dangerous with sharp edges; but beautifully complex.” – Jordan Sarah Weatherhad, Author of Naked Truth
This quote is a direct and accurate description of the Glass Resurrected Collection. This 4 piece set is, stunningly beautiful and complex as they glow from within. The only thing dangerous about them is letting it pass you by. AND… there is a gift with purchase**!!! Gift Of Glass will only be given as a gift at Con for purchase of the whole collection. If there is an over pour, the rest will be given as a gift to those who purchase it online; first come, first served.
