Welp… the gang is all here! Last year during Polish Con New York Spring 2018 I had the honor and privilege of meeting Mackenzie of Pepper Pot Polish. And let me just confirm your suspicions, yes, she is as amazing as you think.
This year, she is returning to Polish Con New Orleans 2019 and she is armed and ready with 3 new event polishes.
And just for funsies…. here’s a picture of Mackenzie and I.
A few weeks ago, Sarah of Bee’s Knees Lacquer (BKL) sadly announced that she and the team at BKL would not be attending Polish Con New Orleans Spring 2019. However, Sarah did leave us with a glimmer of hope also announcing that her 3 Louisiana urban legend inspired LEs would be available at the event and offered by Miranda of Ever After and host of Polish Con.
While we wish the BKL crew all the best and hope to see them at the next event, we know that we are in for a treat for PCNOLA. By the looks of things, they pulled out all the stops for their “bayou chupacabra, Cajun werewolf and legends of the nuns of Ursulines” themed LEs.
Oh…BTW (by the way), in truest BKL fashion of always leaving us wanting more, be on the look out for the upcoming collection in April inspired by the Avengers.
Bourbon St, crawfish, LSU, The Saints, Mardi Gras, French Quarter and beignets are all synonymous with New Orleans and after April 6th, you can add Polish Con to that list!
In just a few short weeks, Polish Con is headed to the Big Easy and this event will be one for the history books. In attendance to the PCNOLA lineup, is veteran maker/brand, Chrissy of Turtle Tootsie Polish. This mighty turtle has created 6 new polishes that will debut including 3 LEs and 3 exclusives.
PLEASE NOTE – THIS POST INCLUDES SWATCHES OF THE VIP BAG POLISH!!!!
Hey Sugas!! For the next 3-ish weeks, we are counting down the final days until Polish Con New Orleans Spring 2019 (PCNOLA)!!! There is so many great things in store for this event including new Polish Con appearances from brands like Ethereal Lacquer and Crystal Knockout and the return of some fan favorites including Fair Maiden, Great Lakes Lacquer and Tonic Nail Polish.
Polish Con began in 2016 with its inaugural event in Chicago, IL showcasing indie nail polish hosted by Mariah, Rachel and Miranda. Since then, there have been a few changes but the main focus has remained the same, indie nail polish. Polish Con has become a bi-annual event hosted by Miranda of Ever After Polish with locations throughout the northern US. For PCNOLA, Miranda has teamed up with Co-Host, Jill of JReine for a spectacular event sure to knock your socks off.

Hey Sugas! About a week ago I treated myself to some cremes because I work hard and deserve it. I had been eye-balling the March 2019 Creme of the Month from Night Owl Lacquer but once on the site, I feel deep into a spiraling rabbit hole. Next thing I know in my cart, I’ve got all of the Cremes of the Month, excluding Aug and Sept 2018 because I had the pleasure of swatching them and Nov 2018 because I didn’t think I needed it…boy was I wrong!, and the In the Dark of the Night (cremes only) Collection.
Today I am excited to bring you Enchant-Mint, the March 2019 Creme of the Month.

Hey Sugas!!! If I’ve said it before, I’ve said it a million times, music soothes the soul and makes all things right again. Now combine that with the rule of three that suggests that a trio of events or characters is more humorous, satisfying, effective and/or more memorable than other numbers, and you have perfection. Let’s think about it this way, we all know some well-known trios like Alvin And The Chipmunks and Snap, Crackle & Pop. These characters are known throughout generations for a great Saturday morning cartoon and the breakfast food of champs – cereal. Let us not forget some of the great musical stylings of great trios like Destiny’s Child, TLC, Beastie Boys and Bee Gees. The point I am trying to make is that greatness comes in 3s.
Today I have the March Mixtape Trios from Pahlish inspired by two of Shannon’s current favorite albums that have been playing on repeat, Florence + The Machine’s “Lungs”; and Blonde Redhead’s “Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons”.
