Well, hello Suga! Welcome back! Now that you’re here, prepare to have your mind blown! Today I have the Heartbreak Ballad Duo from Supernatural Lacquer and Lollipop Posse Lacquer. While the duo may not be available right this second, a very reliable source informed me that a few over pours will be re-stocked but date/time is TBA… SO BE ON THE LOOKOUT!!!
This dynamic duo is guaranteed to break your heart… 1980’s style. The Heartbreak Ballad Duo is anti-Valentine glam and punk rock, and a duo that gives love a bad name. You’re going to hate yourself for loving it 😉
So you all know I have a sweet tooth, right? No? Well, fun fact #144 about me, I love all things sweet and I don’t discriminate! I love cookies, pies, cakes, brownies, candy, ice cream, the list goes on and on. I’d skip breakfast, lunch and dinner just for dessert… it’s the best meal of the day! 4 out of 5 doctors say, “a cookie a day, keeps the doctor away.”
Kidding! Just kidding!! #notreally
But seriously though, I love sweets so this month’s polish pickup (PPU) was just up my alley. The members suggested and voted on sweet treats and the creations these makers came up with are just as yummy as their inspiration.
Today I have an all inclusive post of polish, plates and more from 11 amazing makers contributing to the February PPU. Don’t forget to set you alarms and mark you calendar for Friday 2/5.So what do ya say we take a bite out of something sweet! Enjoy…
Hey Suga! This post is full of goodness and picture heavy as I have the entire That’s Still My Spot Collection from Pretty Beautiful Unlimited. This collection features 12… ‘rainbow friendly’ shades. I absolutely love when makers create collections like this!!
I’ll keep quite now and get to the polish! Enjoy…
Hey Suga Foot! Glad to see you made it back today! It’s a rainy Tuesday here in MD and the skies are grey but that’s not gonna stop us from having a great day anyway, right? Right! In fact, we are going to use the grey skies as inspiration for today’s post.
Today I have 3 new, upcoming polishes from Quixotic, the Feb COTM and 2, yes 2 Grey Nail Polish Fanatic Group customs. First off, let me say how excited I am for the 2 group customs! As you know I lost my dad to brain cancer in 2014 and May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month and the awareness ribbon color is grey. I hope to be able to complete a month long tribute to my dad by wearing a grey mani daily and these polishes are just what I need. If you love all things grey nail polish, then this is the Facebook group for you.
As for the Feb COTM, all I can say is… WOW!!! Mary put all my hopes and dreams into a polish. I wonder how she knew?!
So sit back and put your feet up and let’s take a look at the polish. Enjoy…
Hey Suga! Welcome back! I hope you all had a pleasant weekend. I sure did! We finally got our van fixed so no more 3am mornings for me! Yes, honey, I was getting up at 3am for the last 2 weeks to take Jason to meet his ride for work… ugh. It was an adjustment but I am happy that it’s all over. Saturday I spent time with family, which is ALWAYS fun.
So how many of you caught the games [football] yesterday. Yep, the Patriots are going to the Superbowl… again 😦 Honestly, I was hoping to see Jacksonville take the win. But I am happy that the Vikings took the ‘L’ since they beat my Saints last week…hehehehe. Yes, I’m petty like take. Congrats Eagles!!! Regardless, I will probably only be tuning in the Superbowl for the halftime show and to see how the Budweiser/Dilly Dilly commercial continues and JT
But let’s talk polish. Today I have the February Polish of the Month (POTM) and the Mild & Wild Collection from Colors by Llarowe (CbL). I’m sure by now you are familiar with POTM, the monthly polish available for only 1 week! But the Mild & Wild Collection is new. It consists of 8 polishes that featuring 4 Mild (M) and 4 Wild polishes. Each set includes a holo, a shimmer, a crème and a topper.
Well, I’m excited, how bout you? Let’s jump into the swatches.
Here we are 19 days into the new year. How many of us are still writing/typing ‘2017’? Come on, be honest…lol. I know I am. It’ll be May before it actually sinks in for me🤦🏾♀️. Before I get too far ahead of myself, I’d like to wish my sister in law a Happy 37th Birthday! I can’t wait to celebrate with you next weekend!
Now on to polish news!
Today’s featured collection comes from the creative workings of Karen of Lollipop Posse Lacquer. The January 2018 Shimmers Collection is a set of six contrasting shimmered crellies to cleanse your palate. These shades are deceptively simple, but mean to assist with your endings and beginnings. Let’s start the new year fresh.
It’s always an honor and privilege…and a lot of fun, to be invited to be part of the Hella Holo Customs (HHC) crew. Every month the creativity and talents of both the makers and members are put to the test. What starts with a simple picture or photo is translated into polish. It’s… genius!
This month is no different as the brains and beauty behind HHC hosts 2 undeniably brilliant makers, 1 of which as debut maker for HHC. Please welcome, Mariah of Great Lakes Lacquer and Shannon of Pahlish, boy did these 2 have their work cut out for them.
Back in November pictures were selected and voted on by group members… see membership does have its benefits. From those photos 8 were chosen, 4 for each maker, and dreams became reality.
Don’t believe me? Let’s take a look! Enjoy!
Ok, we’re not gonna spend too much time with this intro because we have to get to the polish. But I’d be rude if I didn’t at least ask how your weekend was. So…. how was it? Do anything exciting?
Really?! That’s great!
Blah, blah, blah.
Ok, polish time now! I’m late to the party but boy do I have a dozzie for you. Pahlish released a 6-piece collection yesterday, Acrana. This collection features combinations of flakies, shimmer and holo…3 of my favorites! So without further delay, let’s get started.
Has anyone told you that YOU ARE AWESOME?! Because you are! On a daily basis you should remind yourself and others just how awesome you/they are. But before we move ahead, let’s take a look at the word AWESOME.
Awesome (Adj) – causing or inducing awe; inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence (honor, adore), admiration, or fear.
Some synonyms are:
So if and when you find yourself not having the best of days or even hours, just know that you are magnificent and wonderous and push through. Push through all the negative and down-right awful things until you get to the point where you see yourself as simply awesome! Be encouraged on today!
Just in case you forget, the 9-piece collection honoring the 7th indieversary of LynBDesigns’ will surely help you remember. Aptly named the You Are Awesome Collection, these polishes are… AWESOME!
