Neon Easter Eggs with Born Pretty Store Nail Art Supplies

It's still summer, right?
I think summer has lasted 6 months already and its not even half over yet. The only good I ever find in summer is polish. Bright, fun, NEON. Today I've got some fun nail art enhancements that are neon...because neon isn't just for polish and old Madonna outfits from the 80s (guilty)!

Glitter Daze is Relaunching with TWO Full and Gorgeous Collections

If you've been around the indie polish block like some of us have, chances are you might remember a little brand called Glitter Daze.
Glitter Daze went under the radar earlier this year in an effort to relaunch and rebrand themselves, and today I can show you the brand new line of polishes they are launching this weekend!
It was a very big honor for me to be asked by them to swatch their new line and new brand, I hope you enjoy what they have in store for you!

Hey guys!
Trying to get back to a more normal posting schedule for a little bit here. Lifes all over the place and making it hard to be as consistent as I would like - so much in fact that sometimes no matter how much I have to show you, I don't get the time to edit photos and I have to show you something old. Its ok though, you don't even know the difference I bet!

Pretty Jelly & Sticky Nails Maleficent Duo Review

Ok - I don't know about YOU, but I am SUPER excited for the new Malificent movie. I am a huge AJ fan as well as Maleficent.  I always gravitate toward the bad guys in stories, and she was always the ultimate bad guy to me growing up...there was so much mystery surrounding that character, I'm very excited to see her story unfold.
The reason I bring this up is because today I have this great collab set from Sticky Nails and Pretty Jelly themed around Maleficent.
Le'ts go!

The Beauty Buffs - Trend: Coral

Hey loves!

Have you missed me?!

I accidentally went AWOL for 2 weeks - OOPS!  Actually we've had a lot of bad stuff going on here and about 10 days ago we also on top of that had to put our dog to sleep. 

It's been hard and I've had little inclination to do anything but lay in my jams and watch tv. But I'm doing ok now and getting back into the swing of it all - just in time for the latest edition of The Beauty Buffs for our Coral Trend Report.

The Neverending Pile Challenge - Holo

Hello there!!
I've been feeling weird the last week or so...sort of detached from reality or possibly just extremely lazy brained. I haven't felt like being social media friendly or even painting my nails. This usually is the case after my boyfriends son has been here for the weekend, it takes me 3 days to get my groove hopefully thats all it is. Luckily I did these manis last week or they probably wouldnt have gotten done in time!

The Neverending Pile Challenge - Vampy

Happy Monday lovelies!
As Mondays go around here lately it's another start to a 3 Day week of The Neverending Pile Challenge - todays prompt is Vampy.

The Neverending Pile Challenge - Use as many untrieds in one mani as you can!

Good day ladies and gents!
Today should definitely be a fun day for the Neverending Pile Challenge, as its "Use As Many Untrieds As You Can In One Mani" day.
The girls are gonna have some crazy stuff, some of them are talking about 20, 25+ polishes in one mani! Can you even?
I can't! I used 8 and that seemed like so many as it was!

Trust Fund Beauty - Swatch & Review

Hey guys!!
Today I have a new brand to show you - though if you are a blog follower/reader, chances are you may have already heard of it as it has made quite a splash in the nail world already.
I'm talking about Trust Fund Beauty, a new line of polishes with a sassy and genius marketing strategy! Finally a brand who gets the idea of being cheeky without being raunchy or downright vulgar!

The Neverending Pile Challenge - Least Expensive's been a tough time around here with all the crazy weather. We've been under tornado watches and storm watches and flood watches since Monday and I'm ready to turn off the weather channel.
So how about we look at some pretty polishes today?
It's "least expensive" day in the Neverending Pile Challenge, nothing less expensive than free, right??

The Neverending Pile Challenge - Most Expensive

Today is the day in the Neverending Pile Challenge where are the big guns are gonna come out.
I don't have a lot of money, I certainly can't go out and buy Clarins whatever it is, or a Lynnderella LE...I just cant do that sort of thing unless I REALLY have to have something. And I've yet to find that something I have to have that badly. I don't even for a sec judge anyone who does, we're all justified to spend what we want on what we want! Not to mention I think it's safe to say we ALL have different ideas about what is a crazy price to pay for polish.

The Neverending Pile Challenge - HAD to Have It...

I had several different renditions in my brain about what to do for todays prompt for NPC. I even went so far as to use EIGHT of my ILNP Ultrachromes, but I hated how it turned out so I fell back on a mani I did last month and hadn't posted yet, because in the end, I wanted THESE polishes just as much as those ultrachromes!

The Neverending Pile Challenge - Boutique

So there was a lot of debate in the group about what is considered a "boutique" polish brand. I think now with so many different countries making and carrying different items, indies, small independent stores in small cities, that the term is quite broader than it once was. I personally was open to however you wanted to interpret it, and I think in my attempt I interpreted it pretty loosely.
