Moore Swatches: December 2019 Polish Pickup (PPU) and Indie Pickup (IPU) – Winter is Coming


Hey Sugas!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! If you’re like me, you ate too much and spent waaayyy too much money over the holiday weekend. I’m definitely paying for both of them this morning but I regret NOTHING!!!

But I do have a seriously important question…. was I the only one that didn’t know December Polish & Indie Pickup (PPU/IPU) started today????

Here I am thinking I have plenty of time to get my thoughts together for this post, when I happened to be cruising through Facebook last night only to discover that PPU/IPU launches today. So don’t put those credit card away just yet and enough with the small talk, let’s get into it!

Moore Swatches: Tonic Nail Polish – Holiday 2019


Hey Sugas!!! I can not believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I spent the day cleaning and prepping to host and entertain family and friends… I’m exhausted. But if I can be honest, I’m already looking forward to the day being over. I love the holidays but dislike the stress it brings. “Is there enough this and that.?” or “Do we have this and that?” I’m over it!!! And as much as I tell myself everything will be ok, I’m still a ball of nerves.

What I do have to look forward to is all the deals and releases for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. My self control will definitely be put to the test this weekend. But as I was cleaning today, I thought about the names for these great shopping days, I wondered….. “what about Sunday?” I mean, Friday, Saturday and Monday have a catchy name but Sunday just sits there…. all alone. So I think It’s high time we changed that. What about Still Shopping Sunday…lol! I don’t know…. like i said I was cleaning…maybe the fumes were getting to me. 

What I do know, and know for a fact is this year, the Tonic team has created 5 new incredible polishes that just scream “HOLIDAY”!!! From chrome, to shimmer, to linear holo, your bound to cross everyone off your holiday list with this collection. Have you been naughty or nice?!

Let me know in the comments a catchy name for Sunday shopping and let me know what you plan on picking up from Tonic.
