It's week four of the ABC Challenge and I finally have a list made out of what I plan on doing for the rest of the challenge! Woohoo! Now I just hope I can execute them the way I see them in my head! :/ Today I decided on a look I had done a while back, when I was first starting to play with my polish and I hadn't even started my blog yet. I have a picture of it on my first post along with several other crazy looking manis,which you can find here. It's not much of a post really, but a gallery of photos that I had taken and just slapped on to the page, but it's funny to see then vs now!

Welcome to another Ty It On Tuesday! I'm really enjoying these posts, simply because I am getting to try out the polishes I would have never gotten to otherwise. I have come across some real treasures in my collection and I'm so early into the year! Today's TIOT is no exception, I have found an amazing combo to show you all today, it kind of broke my heart to have to take it off!

As promised I am going to try and do a bit of weekend stamping every other weekend. This is my first attempt at stamping a several months, so I went a little easy. My hubby and I had plans to go to the butterfly house with my mom and niece today, so I decided on simple butterflies. Too bad we never actually made it to the butterfly house! But we did go bowling! ;)
Happy weekend loves! I have a quick review post for you today, 4 of 6 from the new Girl Please Collection. I'm just going to jump right into, so here it goes!

Hi girls and boys! I know another really late post, I was feeling a little under the weather today so I got little done. When I finally got around to editing my pix for this review I realized that the stilettos, while they looked HOT covered in this particular polish, it was just impossible to show you how truly beautiful it is. So I had to re-swatch! Ugh!
This was a very Limited Edition that Allison released right before the holidays. Here is a little history lesson on what The Krampus is!

Instructions for Zoya PixieDust application:
· Clean and prep nail using Zoya Remove +
· Magic Time! Apply 1 thin coat of Zoya PixieDust to each nail - allow to dry completely (will appear matte with sparkle).
· Apply an 1-2 coats of polish (allowing each to dry) as desired. We suggest 2-3 thin coats of Zoya PixieDust for a full coverage manicure.

NOTE: Zoya PixieDust Nail Polish dry times are a little slower than with traditional polish but once dry, the Zoya PixieDust formulation will provide extended wear.
Best results are achieved by using the product alone. No basecoat or topcoat required. Layering of the Zoya PixieDust formulation with other polishes may produce less than desirable results.

Tonight I have 2 lovely lacquers to show you from Whooz Polish. I posted the first half of this latest batch last week so if you missed that post you can find it here. I want to start off this review by letting you know that Whooz Polish is waiting on supplies and has a limited amount of pretties available at this moment. I will have links at the end of the post so you can follow Whooz Polish on Facebook and you will know when Stephanie has restocked the shop! :)
I am actually posting on time for this ABC Challenge! Wooho! I'll try and have a review post up tonight at some point too! Anyway, I picked 2 untried Color Club polishes for today's challenge and the end result...SPARKLE!

Running behind, what's new right!? Story of my life lately. I had this swatched earlier and when I was photographing it I swear I thought my camera was gonna reach around and smack me! There is so much going on in this polish that I have never ever EVER worked so hard to try and get halfway decent pictures! I still don't think I did this polish any justice at all, but here is my week attempt at showing you this stunner!
Today I have another Valentine's Day collection to show you, from a newer Indie maker, BG Cosmetics aka Bitch Glitz. All 3 are so opaque they give almost complete coverage in 1 coat, 2 coats get the job done for sure. Ketlyn is the owner of BG Cosmetics, she makes 3 Free and Cruelty Free polishes with a dash of Diamond Dust for extra shimmer and chip resistance!

I received this Influenster VoxBox and I was actually excited to try these out! Excited about DISHES??? LOL Yeah, sounds silly, I know! My first impressions of these were "Oooooooh, pretty!" Then I smelled them, I liked the Lemon Thyme it has a nice fresh clean scent. As does the Lime Basil, which is my favorite. I was most excited to try the Ginger White Tea, but I'm so not crazy about the smell. It just smells off to me.
I decided to start using them right away and the first one I tried was the Ginger White Tea. I decided to try it first because I thought I would get use to the smell, wrong. I really don't like this one. I'll stick to the more common scents of lemon and lime with this brand. I do love that the soap get's nice and sudsy, I don;t think my dishes are clean unless I have lots of bubbles! Even better is that it rinses nice and clean without a greasy filmy feeling! I would recommend giving them a try, you may even like the Ginger White Tea, I seem to be one of few people who don't like the scent, even my hubby likes it.
You can find Palmolive Fresh Infusions at Walmart for about $2.96.

How is everyone this Monday morning? I'm tired! I had a long weekend, GOOD, but long. I know I haven't followed my set schedule for stamping on the weekend or nail art on Thursdays and I'm sorry. We had a lot of gymnastics meets this month so I haven't been around so much nail stuff let alone posting on the weekends. This week I am going to try and double up on posts on Tuesday and Thursday to get my review bin emptied out! I don't like having that many polishes sitting in the bin, and if I continue to do them on Monday, Wednesday and Friday I'll never get caught up.
Today I have some yet to be released polishes from Utopia's Polish! 2 Valentine's Day polishes and 1 St Patrick's Day polish. I decided to group these together since they are all unreleased and I wanted to get the pictures to Virginia, the creative mind behind Utopia's Polish, as soon as possible so she can list them for you all!

Hello my lacquered lovelies! I know I'm posting a little late tonight, I'm so sorry! I have had a weird kind of day, and I 'm just behind on everything. So I'm juts going to jump right on into the review I have for you tonight.
Thursday, January 17, 2013
So I tried and tried to come up with nail art that started with the letter B, and as you can see I failed. I am having a bit of Nail Art block right now. I can't seem to think of any designs that I wan to try. This makes me a sad girl. :( I love, love , LOVE nail art, so to draw a blank 2 weeks in a row is really depressing. Anyway, I decided to use one of my untrieds.
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Tonight I have a newer Indie to show you. Jen from Miss March has some real beauties in this collection, all you glitter haters (Nicole) will appreciate this collection a lot! There are 2 shimmers, 2 multichromes and 1 glitter (not a glitter bomb, I promise).
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Welcome to another TIOT! Today I am, again, swatching 2 untrieds. Hopefully I can knock out most of my untrieds by the end of the year if I pair them up like this and also if I swatch them in collections as well!
Monday, January 14, 2013
Hola lovelies! Today I have some really beautiful Valentine's Day Polishes from U-Neek Polish's Hearts Collection. Every one of the 4 colors has, you guessed it, heart glitters! Let's get to it...
Friday, January 11, 2013
Happy Friday! Today I have the final 2 of my Ooh La Lacquers to review for you! If you missed the first review I did you can find that here.
Thursday, January 10, 2013
Today instead of Nail Art Thursday I am going to do my first day of the very relaxed ABC Challenge. I am running low on time, I have packing and last minute house work that needs to be done as well as a scheduled post for Friday, since I will be leaving for Indiana tonight. My little Red-Head has her first out of state gymnastics meet at the dome this weekend, so I get to see my big brother and my niece as well! Yay!
Anyway, for those who aren't familiar with the ABC challenge it's pretty easy. We are doing a weekly post and for each letter I will pick a polish that the brand or name starts with the letter of that week! I want to say a quick thank you to one of my polish bff's Kimber @ Kimber'sLacquerKorner for organizing this challenge! I am looking forward to seeing the different polishes that I'm sure I will be adding to my always growing wish list!
Wednesday, January 9, 2013
I have been meaning to do a review on top coats for a while now, but all the Indie's I've been reviewing lately has taken over a lot of my time since I got a big amount of them at once. But now I feel like I need to give you guys all the goods on this awesome product!
Tuesday, January 8, 2013
Good evening everyone! Post #2 for today, if you missed the first one you can check that one out right here.
Tonight I have my first TIOT! Yay! I have so many untrieds that I haven't even counted them...I'm going to go out on a limb and say that at least 50% of my stash is untried...and if you have seen my stash list lately, which needs to be updated, you know that's a lot of untrieds! So hopefully TIOT's will help thin that list down a bit!
For today's TIOT I got a little help form one of my lovely Facebook fans! She wanted to see something mint or teal...
Hi all! I know I'm a bit behind, I'm so sorry! So since this was suppose to go up last night, there will be a second, regularly scheduled Try It In Tuesday post a little later on, so I hope you come back to see that as well! Anyway, I have some lovely polishes to show you from U-Neek Polish this morning/afternoon. I am going to warn you now that this post is a lengthy one.
Sunday, January 6, 2013
Happy Sunday all! Before I get to the review I want to remind you all of the exciting things to start Monday with my new schedule. Here is a refresher: Mon, Wed, Fri are review days. Tuesdays are Try It On Tuesdays (TIOT). Thursday is Nail Art, and every other weekend is set aside for stamping. I will soon be participating in a very relaxed challenge with some of my buddies that were in the 31 day challenge! We will be doing the ABC challenge, pretty easy since it's just using a polish that the name or brand starts with whichever letter we are on and we are doing it weekly instead of daily! So if any of you are down with the challenge please head over to Kimber's Lacquer Korner and leave her a comment on that post letting her know your URL so she can add you to the list! You can do it! Once a week is super relaxed!
Ok, I'm finished rambling now! So on to the polish...
Friday, January 4, 2013
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week! Any good plans for the weekend? I have to get up at the butt crack of dawn tomorrow to go to my little one's gymnastics meet, so I will be TIRED!! (I don't do early, at all! LOL) So today I have the last 2 in the Winter Chic Collection by Jindie Nails.
Wednesday, January 2, 2013
Tonight I have part 2 of 3 of the Jindie Nails Winter Chic Collection. The first part, with Dream In Color and Battle Royale can be found here.
Happy Wednesday all my Sassy Painters! I hope everyone is surviving what I'm sure is the first day back to work for most of you. I am working on a post right now for a little later on today. I really have got to get to crankin' these swatches out! I have LOTS of Indies to show you, some never before seen collections and some that have been out for a little while and should really be given a second look if you haven't gotten them already! Before I post my review post for today I have a few things I wanted to tell you all. I have been thinking about quality content for my readers and how to better utilize my time for the blog. So I have come up with a few things that are kind of my resolutions for the blog over the next year.
