Hello my sassy friends! How is everyone this evening? Well I hope. I'm freezing mu patootie off here! I really wish mother nature would tell the snow to go away now! Today I have a couple of polishes from a fairly new Indie brand to show you, Frankenstain Nail Polish.

Welcome to the H day of Kimber's ABC Challenge! I know, another late post today! What's new, right? I had a completely different mani planned out for this day of the challenge, but since I had planned on doing some cool stuff with my Color Club Holo Hues it just wasn't going to happen. I woke up to snow and not a ray of sunshine! Boo! Mother Nature must have missed the memo that I'm ready for spring! Anyhow, since there was no sun I opted for using 2 of the only 3 Hard Candy polishes I own. I had been looking for Hard Candy polishes for what seems to be an eternity. The Walmart by me got rid of the display for the polishes so When I go to a different Walmart, which isn't often, I looked for Beetle like crazy! When I was in Indiana back in January I found the last bottle of Beetle!

I just wanted to do a super quick post with some of the PixieDust polishes I reviewed in my last post. Nothing fancy, anyone can do it. I wanted to do something to show you that you don't have to just wear these alone.
Hi girls and boys! As you know, unless you've been living under a rock, Textured polishes are the big thing this year. I know that a lot of you have been going crazy over Zoya's version of this hot trend, so I am happy to bring the whole PixieDust collection here to my blog today for your viewing pleasure!

Sorry for the late post guys! I have had a b***h of a time getting adjusted to he new light tent and getting my camera to cooperate. I am going to apologize now for the quality of the pictures. They looked pretty good while I was taking them and then during the cropping process I realized that they were not as good as they should be. Jen I am so sorry, but I do believe I have failed at capturing how lovely these glitter beauties are in real life this time around. I'm thinking it may be time to invest in a new camera. It still takes great bottle shots though! LOL

So who's getting snowed on today? I am! It's been falling hard for the last 4 or 5 hours or so. Of course the one time I have plans during the week mother nature wants to try and ruin them. Stupid snow! LOL Anyway, today I am showing you another beauty from Laquerlicious!
...This polish is in a clear base with black glitter and a rainbow of tiny hex and square glitter.

Happy Wednesday my polished pretties, and welcome to another day in the ABC Challenge! Today's mani has been on my list of "Nails To Try" for a very long time now. I participated in another challenge hosted by Kimber over at Kimbers Lacquer Korner, the 31 Day Challenge. There was a Galaxy day in that challenge, I skipped it. :/ Boo me. I don't know why but Galaxies really intimidate me, they seem so time consuming and I've seen some that look like blobs of polish and paint so I skipped it because I was afraid that mine would be hideous. However, I am trying to branch out just a little more and try things that I may not like or I am intimidated by.

Hi all! I have tons of swatching to do today so I have a quick post for Try It On Tuesday! I wanted to try out a beauty from one of my favorite Indie brands, Wing Dust Collections! I have several of these in my untried list that I have been wanting to show you all but with all of the review polishes, the challenge days and all of my personal things going on I haven't had time to get to them as quickly as I'd hoped, which is why I love, Love, LOVE Try It On Tuesday!

Hi everyone, happy Monday I hope everyone had a great weekend! Sorry I was MIA for the past few days, I had a lot going on. My hubby and I are currently in the process of doing some renovations to the house, and we had a lot of price comparisons to do on Friday. Then we had my nieces birthday party on Saturday and I had some work to do on Sunday so there was just no time for posting.
Today I am going to show you 3 colors from White Owl Lacquers After All This Time collection. This collection was inspired by Harry Potter! I am a huge Potter Head so anything HP makes me giddy!

Hi girls and boys, happy humpday and welcome to day F in the ABC Challenge! I have been looking forward to this day for a while. It's been a long time since I've done a french mani and I really wanted to see how it looked on my stilettos, since I've never done one on them. I just received my first flocking powders from the oh so sweet Nicole over at Nicole Gets Nailed so I knew I had to use some on my F day!

Hi again! 2nd post of the day, I almost skipped doing this weeks Try It On Tuesday but I felt like a bad blogger even considering it. LOL I'm going to make it a very quick one though, I have so much to get done for the rest of the weeks posts since I fell behind over the weekend. Since I will be super busy next weekend I'm trying to get some posts scheduled.
I picked up a min set of OPI Liquid Sand's a few weeks ago and haven't had the chance to swatch them so when I needed a quick out the door mani I decided to give it a shot. No base coat, no top coat, it worked out well for a fast mani. When I got back home I added a matte and glossy top coat to one nail each just for comparison.
Happy Fat Tuesday y'all!! I wish I was going to the big celebration in St Louis tonight so I could drink some hurricanes and stuff my face full of food but it's still way too cold for me! The last time I participated in any Mardi Gras festivities was several years ago and I literally froze myself from the waist down! So now if it's below 50 degrees or snowing I don't go! LOL
I know it's a TIOT day, and I will have a post up for that later tonight, but right now I want to talk about a non polish obsession of mine! Candles!!! I love candles. They make the house have a nice warm, cozy feeling. Scented candles are even better, because if you find the right one it can fill any room or even the house with a great fragrance and not be overpowering. I have a very sensitive nose so most air freshening sprays are way too harsh for my nose and cause my head to hurt. IMO most wall plug in's are either too fragrant or not at all and the scents usually don't smell anything like what they should! For these reasons I prefer candles. The best part is my husband LOVES candles even more than I do!!! Yay! So when Crystal of Savory Scents asked if I'd like to try out a candle I was super excited!

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was unexpectedly busy. I had quite a few plans for manis that I wanted to post but life happened and prevented me from doing so. Oh well, I like getting out of the house and my niece, mom AND dad surprised me and my hubs by driving out and taking us out for lunch yesterday! That's huge since my mom and dad have been divorced since I was a teenager. They crack me up with how well they get along now, I guess sometimes you just gotta love divorce! Ok that's enough of my rambling, let's get on with the show...
I received a surprise package last week from Michelle of Laquerlicious with some beauties to review for you all, and since everyone is promoting and swatching Valentine's Day collections (I have reviewed quite a few in the past several weeks) I decided to break up the "love fest" and swatch Michelle's gorgeous St. Patrick's Day polish for you all!

I was so honored when Mara from Mara in Polishland asked me to review some the polishes from her new Indie line! Mara is one of my favorite bloggers and to be asked to review *I die!* It was a big moment for me, my husband thought I was crazy because of how excited I was when I received that email!
I decided that since Valentine's Day is just around the corner I would show you all the "Heightened Emotions" set, which was inspired by The Vampire Diaries.

Today I have the entire set of Color Clubs Spring 2013 Holo Hues Collection. I missed out on the first set, when everyone was buying them at cheaper prices, so when I found this set through an IG connection I made sure I grabbed one before the prices went up.

I decided to recycle my ABC Challenge mani and layer some NBP goodness on it. Allison sent this to me a little while back and I was thrilled to receive it! This was never seen in her Etsy shop, it was created for a shop in Vermont to be sold during the holidays. Hopefully Allison will decide to make more of this one for the 2013 holiday season! Since this is a Vermont themed polish I was interested to see what the idea was behind it. Here's what I found...
Welcome back to another day of the ABC Challenge! Today I had a few things in mind. I attempted a couple and they were either fails or just bleh! So I went to plain old easy route and picked one of my untrieds!

Hello all! Just a quick Try it on Tuesday post for you! I recently won a polish of my choice from Cameo Colors Lacquers and when I was browsing through all the options I kept going back to Smoldering Temptress. Moulin Rouge is my all time favorite movie and anything Moulin Rouge I love! I even used the song Come What May in my wedding! Yes I love the movie that much! So when It come down to picking Smoldering Temptress is was a no brainer really!

Happy Monday!!! Today I have an amazing Valentine’s Day collection from my most favorite Indie maker! I know that there are a TON of Vday collections out there and you may be feeling smacked in the face with them, but these are more than just Vday polishes! These kind of make me think of that scene in Bambi, when everything starts to thaw and all the animals get Twitterpated! LOL These polishes aren’t just a bunch of hearts in a bottle, they are flowers and butterflies too! Very Spring like and not just your ordinary Vday polishes, so these beauties can be worn long after the obligatory flowers have died and the conversation hearts have disappeared!
