Moore Swatches: Takko Lacquer – Spring Macaron Box 2019 and Restocked Colors



Hey Sugas!! I’m back with a brand that is making its Queendom debut, Takko Lacquer. I had the pleasure of meeting Sheryl at PCNY Fall 2018 where I purchased my first Takkos and it was love at first polish.

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!

Moore Swatches: KBShimmer – Launch Party 2019 Trio


Hey Sugas!!! One year ago, KBShimmer took a leap forward and launched a new look to celebrate the anniversary of their 10

Now, they celebrate the one year anniversary of KBShimmer’s new look, which we love even more today, by bringing you a new magnetic top coat trio! This trio features magnetic multichrome flakes and vibrant micro holo flakes for a celestial look that is out of this world! 

Galaxies swirl with planets, stars, dust and dark matter with Universal Appeal and dusk gives way to night with the vibrant tones of nature as they become muted as moonlight casts a soft glow in Moon on Over and finally, the hot, fiery, warming of the sun changes our moods, warms our homes, and gives life to our planet. Sol Mate echoes the colors of nature that the sun helps bring to life.  

But none of this is made possible without Ring Magnet! These magnetic polishes are an out-of-this-world invention with the power of a magnet. Color is shifted and relocated on the nail for a futuristic effect. For best results, you need a strong magnet with the right magnetic pattern – and not all magnets will work.  The KBShimmer Neodymium Ring Magnet will give your magnetic polish manicures a makeover! This one-inch magnet has a convenient 3/4-inch opening large enough for most fingers, and is 1/4-inch in width. For a curved, negative space on the nail, hold ring flat against nail about 1/4 inch away. For a subtle linear look, hold nail inside the ring. This magnet can be used with all magnetic polishes including gel varieties.

Moore Swatches: Braves Diva Polish – Nana’s Island Escape Trio


“Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don’t care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don’t win it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,
At the old ball game.”

This song is probably as synonymous and classic with baseball as baseball is with American culture. I mean, baseball is known as “The Great American pastime” for a reason, right?

For one particular nail artist/b(v)logger, her love of the game and love of nail polish came to a head in 2016 when she decided to start her own brand. Who am I referring to…? Tara of Braves Diva Polish. 

Coming soon, Braves Diva Polish is releasing Nana’s Island Escapes! 3 glorious cremes inspired by Tara’s mom’s travels to her favorite place on earth, Exuma Island in the Bahamas. All I have to say is, if this trio is the cause her mom going on amazing vacations, we need to get her to go on more. 

So, while you sittin’ back in your cozy recliner next Friday with an ice cold drink in one hand watching the Braves take on the Mets at 7:20pm, just remember to set an alarm for Nana’s Island Escape Trio releasing at 9pm – just in case the game goes into extra innings.
