Moore Swatches: Bee’s Knees Lacquer – May 2019 Release


Hey Sugas!!! Forgive me. I may not not be up to date on all my Marvel movies and know all of the characters, but what I do know a little about and am excited to share with you is polish. The 4 piece, May 2019 Release from Bee’s Knees Lacquer to be exact. Inspired by Marvel, BKL, created 4 multichromes which use a larger particle to give a bit of extra sparkle – because let’s face it, we all need a little more sparkle. These multicromes are extremely shifty because of all of the pigment packed into them.

In the famous lyric of Bruno Mars, “don’t believe me, just watch!”

Moore Swatches: Femme Fatale Cosmetics – Chilling Adventures Collection, May COTM and May FOTM



Hey Sugas!! Help me welcome Femme Fatale Cosmetics to the Queendom!!! This brand is far from “new to me” but it is the first time I have featured them here and what better way to share this brand than with the newest collection, Chilling Adventures and the May COTM and FOTM.

The Chilling Adventures Collection is inspired by the popular Netflix Sabrina series. These colors were specially formulated to reminisce the wearer of enchantments, dusky woods, a sudden breeze blowing through the trees, damp soil, dewdrops on grass… and a bit of mystery.

The May COTM was inspired by the famous artwork – The Kiss. The Kiss, is an oil painting with added silver and gold leaf by the Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt in 1907. 

The Glass Palace, the May FOTM, was inspired by the ‘Glass Palace’ in Madrid, Spain. The incredible glass structure was built in 1887 to exhibit exotic flora and fauna and in 2006 Korean artist Kimsooja put mirrors on the floor and covered windows with a translucent filters that caused light diffraction, thus filling the rooms with the surreal rainbows. 

So there you have it…..

Moore Swatches: Bee’s Knees Lacquer – Infinity Stones Collection and Captain Marvel UP Toppers


Hey Sugas!!! I’m playing catch up from taking a few days away to attend Polish Con in New Orleans at the beginning of the month, so I apologize for today’s delayed post.

I know many have already purchased the Infinity Stones Collection and Captain Marvel UP toppers and so therefore, you can attest to how amazing they are. If you haven’t, go ahead and pull the trigger – your bank account may be upset for a while, your nails will thank you.

As you all know, cremes are my thing and this 6-piece collection is the bee’s knees – no pun intended. In a rush for time, I didn’t get to test their watermarble or stamping abilities, but if you’d like a live FB video, be sure to comment below.  As for other nail art, this is a perfect bright, rainbow-y collection to have to for those stamping, gradient and smoosh manis.

And the toppers…. OMG!!! They are out of this world. They either of them pair well with the Infinity Stones Collection or any dark colors based for a nice pop!
