NOTD: Ninja Polish Mystic Glacier

Hello lovelies!

I have a beautiful polish to show you today! I love the Enigma collection from Ninja Polish! The colors are so gorgeous and the color shift is amazing! Today I am showing you Mystic Glacier! Here is the description from Ninja Polish:

Ninja Polish presents Mystic Glacier from the Enigma Collection. From the furthest reaches of the arctic comes the breathtaking Mystic Glacier. As though the northern lights were lured in and seized by the ice the soft array of magical colors that are captured in this polish are spectacular. Mystic Glacier gives you an array of color shifting multichromatic colors with a soft ice blue base. Covering opaque in 2 coats.

Now check out the epicness in these photos!

These next photos ended up being my favorite and I think showed off the shift the best! Please excuse the dent in my middle finger!

I seriously could not stop looking at my nails while I had this on! Especially in the shower lol, not sure why but the color was beautiful in the water! Even outside of the shower it has a very mermaid vibe! Now I am super excited to show you Pacific Coral and I NEED to get my hands on Tweety, the yellow one! I am hoping it gets restocked soon!

Summer Haulin'!

Hello lovelies!

I hope you are all having a great week so far! I have a pretty exciting haul post for you today, I was able to squash some major lemmings! Check it out!

Everything together! 

 First up. . .RBL Aqua Lily! This has been on the top of my list forever! So happy to win this at a decent price in an auction!

 Another huge lemming of mine! Enchanted Polish Britney Spearmint! I was able to swap with a friend to score this one!

 I finally broke down and bought my Picture Polish colors! These were purchased from Overall Beauty. This was my first order from Kim and I was super happy with the overall transaction! Here is Honey Dew and Tiffany, both beautiful colors and in my opinion different enough to justify owning both!

 Here are my picks from A-England's new Burne-Jones Dream collection: Sleeping Palace and Fated Prince. Both purchased from Ninja Polish.

 A couple more from Ninja Polish! I love the Ninja Polish brand, never disappoints! Here is Shillelagh and Pinkerbell Floam.

 I have had my eye on a few colors from Smitten Polish, and when these were released I couldn't pass them up! Here is Sunken Galleon and The Ghost of Jupiter, both purchased from Llarowe.

 I was so excited that Leah Ann from Llarowe launched her own brand: Colors by llarowe! I was able to snag these from her launch: P38, P51 and Gizmo!

 I love Scofflaw's new summer colors! I was able to get all 3 that I wanted when Finch launched them on her Etsy store: Paranoid Android, Electric Salamander and Wyld Stallyns.

 These were also purchased from Overall Beauty, and were a great deal on sale for only $5 each! Here is Franken Bride, Rockin' My Grammy Panties and Crotch Rocket.

 My first Femme Fatale Colors! Sparkleshell and Veil of The Siren were both from a blog sale and the mini Glinting Lodestone was sent to me as an extra in a swap!

 Have I mentioned how much I love Naild' It? Definitely one of my favorite indies! I was able to get the first 3 colors on Etsy: Give Hope, Yellow Belly and Peacock Squawk. Finally from Llarowe I got Dragon Scales!  

 Here is a brand that I have been dying to try! Black Cat Lacquer! The first 4 came directly from their website: Punk Rock Girl, Sanitation Twins, The Dream of the 90's Is Alive and We Can Pickle That. I also got We Own The Sky in a swap!

 A couple of random polishes, CrowsToes Thing from Overall Beauty and Barry M Green Berry from their Gelly collection purchased from Ninja Polish.

 These are all blog sale purchases: Orly Coachella Dweller, Happy Hands Afternoon Thunderstorms and Catrice Squeeze Me.

 And a few more! KBShimmer Proud Peacock, Girly Bits Wet Bikini (swap), Darling Diva 51 Shades of HELL No and Julep Denver.

Final group shot!
There you have it! I will another haul post all too soon! ;)

NOTD: Scofflaw Wyld Stallyns

Hello lovelies!

I am excited to show you another indie! Today I am featuring Scofflaw Wyld Stallyns! I have grown very fond of this brand and have a few others I will show you eventually, but this one called to me to be used first!

The Bill & Ted movies remain some of my favorite movies and I love that Finch used it to inspire this polish! Here is a description:

"Wyld Stallyns is just the sort of polish the Princesses would have worn when rocking out with Bill and Ted. A vibrant violet-learning purple base with copper and pink shimmer, filled with glitters in different shapes and sizes in purple, blue, chartreuse, silvery white, neon pink and pale blue."

Now for some photos!

I love this polish and and am excited to wear it again when I am pale this winter! This is a color that actually pops better on lighter skin tones! Still a keeper in my collection!

Black Cat Lacquer Sanitation Twins, Otherwise Known As My Most Favorite Glitter EVER!

Hello lovelies!

I am so excited about this glitter, it's ridiculous! Out of the 1200+ polishes I have ever owned (currently weeded down to about 800-900) this is the first one that I truly think I need a back up of!

I showed you Zoya Darcy yesterday, and while it was beautiful on it's own it was also a perfect base for this beautiful mess of glitter that is Black Cat Lacquer Sanitation Twins! ST is from the Welcome To Portlandia collection. I love the reference to Portlandia! Here is the description:

"We're here to tell you all about the new recycling bins! Cardboard & newspaper, blue! Plastic & aluminum, black! Yard waste, YELLER! Coffee cup sleeves, orange! Stir sticks, brown! Cups, periwinkle! Lids, fuchsia! Lipstick lids, rose! Broken umbrellas & broken hearts, canary! Lotion, chartreuse! Lotion bottles, green! Fingernails & eggshells, cobalt! This polish has it all!"

It truly does have it all! On to the photos!

Love it! This is backup worthy for me not only because the amazing mix of glitters but also the glitter payout was amazing and so easy to apply! You are looking at 1 coat! I even had to wipe glitter off the brush! I am an instant fan of Black Cat Lacquer and can't wait to show you more!

NOTD: Zoya Darcy

Hello lovelies!

Has it really been a week and a half since my last post?! I am so sorry! I have a few lined up for you though to try to make up for my absence!

Today is a quick one featuring Zoya Darcy! Darcy is a warm, sunny, yellow creme. I love bright colors like this and am so thankful that I can usually pull off yellow!

Simple but love it! Stay tuned for my next post to see how I made this mani even better! Also you probably noticed I increased the size of my photos! What do you think? I plan on making them even bigger once I get a chance to change the width of my layout so they fit properly! :)
