Julep Zara

Nothing To Disclose

Julep just recently stopped their monthly boxes, something I had been a subscriber since the very beginning. Granted, I've skipped a lot of boxes but one of the boxes that I got included Zara, a sheer grey holo that's very subtle.

Cupcake Polish San Antonio Shuffle

Nothing To Disclose

Texas is huge but when I heard the Indie Shop was going to be in San Antonio in October 2017, I was super stoked. That's only about a 2.5 hour drive north of me so I packed up the car and drove up. One of the exclusives from Cupcake Polish was called San Antonio Shuffle and it was a purple/blue polish with blue shimmer and subtle holo. I snatched it up.

le Polish Be (Polish) Confident

Nothing To Disclose

Back in 2017 at PolishCon NYC, I really made an effort to buy polish from all the vendors especially ones that I didn't know. le Polish was selling Be (Polish) Confident, a dusty purple shimmer. Your eyes aren't broken, my label was double printed and missing the name of the brand.

Different Dimension Stunning

Press Sample

Awhile back, I got this awesome care package from Different Dimension and included inside was Stunning, a purple based polish with red to green aurora shimmer. So the aurora shift is apparent in the bottle but did it show up on my nails?


Morgan Taylor Best Face Forward

The finale in the Morgan Taylor Selfie Summer 2017 collection is Best Face Forward, a neon purple with blue shimmer. This polish needed some good shaking because the neon was getting a little thick but check this out.


Morgan Taylor No Filter Needed

Press Sample

TGIF! Today I decided to use the blue neon from the Summer 2017 Selfie collection from Morgan Taylor called No Filter Needed. This blue is leaning into turquoise but less green and is actually super flattering.

Morgan Taylor Woke Up This Way

Morgan Taylor All About That Pout

Continuing with the Summer 2017 Selfie collection, today I have Morgan Taylor All About That Pout. This polish isn't a neon but is actually more of just a light pink creme to me.

Morgan Taylor Pretty As A Pink-ture

Press Sample

As you know, I've been working on clearing off my desk. Now I'm really pushing because I'm looking to buy my first Helmers next month so I want to get things organized so I can just start filling the Helmers when I get them home. Imagine my surprise when I realized that I had FIVE Morgan Taylor COLLECTIONS sitting on my desk. This weekend, I headed to a "Brewfest" (which is slightly less fun when you're pregnant) and know it would be 94 degrees and super sunny, I wanted a nice neon to go with my day. From the Summer 2017 Selfie collection, I have Morgan Taylor Pretty As A Pink-ture.

Trust Fund Beauty Zero Carbs

Nothing To Disclose

I've let a few of my coworkers know about my polish collection and turns out another one of my coworkers is totally into nail polish too! I had destashed a bunch of polishes her way (including some indies because friends give friends the good stuff too), and for my birthday, she gifted me a bottle of Trust Fund Beauty in Zero Carbs, which is a dusty purple. She knows that purple is my favorite color so this was right up my alley.

Tonic First Kiss

Nothing To Disclose

So far every single Tonic I've pulled from my stash has been so unique from anything I've seen. Today's polish First Kiss is no exception! This was in the VIP bag for the PolishCon Minneapolis. I wasn't able to attend last year but I was able to buy a VIP bag after the fact and I'm so happy about all these pretties!

China Glaze Teal the Fever

Press Sample

I'm still clearing off my desk and didn't realize that I had China Glaze Teal the Fever sitting here from the 2017 Glam Finale collection. This is a blue/green glitter sitting in a clear base.


Darling Diva After Party

Press Sample

Today I've got an oldie for you! Back in 2016, there was an event called Cocktails & Colors which was kind of a precursor to PolishCon & Indie Shop as far as having an organized group of nail polish makers and bloggers in one spot (obviously the later are more convention type with selling). It was held in Las Vegas and was always a nice time. One of the items in the swag bag that was provided was from Darling Diva called After Party

LVX Bare

Press Sample

Today I have the second half of the LVX Naked Neutrals 2019 collection. While Buff was more yellow toned, Bare is pore of a light pink creme.


KBShimmer Breaking Blues

Nothing To Disclose

The other day, my awesome son (who turns 4 in May) decided to grab a bottle of nail polish off my desk and paint all over himself, my keyboard, my desk and a bit on the floor. It prompted me to clear off my desk and I realized I have over 50 just cluttering up here so I'm on a mission to get all the polish off my desk. Today I grabbed KBShimmer Breaking Blues which was in a mystery pack that I purchased from their website. This is a periwinkle blue creme.


Red Glitter Nails with Morgan Taylor & F.U.N Lacquer

Press Sample Nothing To Disclose

This weekend, I attended my first ADDY's & Big Wigs award show for the American Advertising Federation. I was in a room of MY PEOPLE and it was so much fun. The theme was "jewel toned" so I wanted to really rock a good nail look.

Glisten & Glow Lavender Liqueur

Nothing To Disclose

I am definitely a fan of all things purple. I have a purple Keurig. I have a purple star tattoo. I have way more purple polish than I probably should. Today I have Glisten & Glow Lavender Liqueur. This was a limited edition polish that I picked up at PolishCon Chicago 2016 and it's been hiding in a box. As part of my purge, I decided to try it on. This is a light lavender holographic with some silver holo microglitter. I also just had a huge chop so check out the nubbins below!


LVX Buff

Press Sample

Today I'm showing you the newest polish from LVX from their Naked Neutrals 2019 collection. This is Buff, a sheer buttery beige. It's more beige than Vanille from the Fall Winter 2016 collection but in the same family.

Girly Bits Nameste Up All Night

Nothing To Disclose

The other half of Pam's gift to Jen from the "Oh Baby, Baby!" trio is Namaste Up All Night, a grey to soft blue thermal. After spending many a night up with my last newborn (who is almost 4!), this polish spoke to me in ways.


Girly Bits Womb Service

Nothing To Disclose

Today I have part two of the trio "Oh Baby, Baby!" from Girly Bits. Today's thermal Womb Service was created for Pam's other daughter Jen who is due this month. Jen is Team Green (not finding out the sex before the birth) so this polish is one option for her to wear on the big day. 

Girly Bits Reveal

Nothing To Disclose

They say that the best creative types create from real life. I feel that's the dang truth for Girly Bits who recently came out with the "Oh Baby, Baby!" trio based on her two new grandchildren coming this spring. Sierra was having a girl so this polish, Reveal was created for her baby shower with it's blurple to pink color transition.

Starrily Light Up The Night

Nothing To Disclose

If you've been following my Instagram, you've noticed that my nails are ridiculously long right now. Like, longer than I've had in years. My favorite manicurist left her salon and I haven't been to her new place (not sure I will) so I just let them grow. Then on Friday, I broke one on my Cindy hand (the hand that does all the work), so I decided before I went for a big chop, I was going to try out all my thermals I've had on my desk. Today is Starrily Light Up The Night, a deep teal blue to nude/shimmer polish.

Sally Hansen x Crayola Deep Space Sparkle

Press Sample

I'm at the finale of the Sally Hansen x Crayola Glam Rock collection with Deep Space Sparkle, a charcoal metallic. I thought this would be more black than blue but it's still neat.

Sally Hansen x Crayola Blast Off Bronze

Press Sample

So I was stoked for Blast Off Bronze from the Sally Hansen x Crayola collection because in the press release I received, it said it was a subdued take on the rose gold trend, and I LOVE rose gold. Did this copper metallic live up to the claims?

Sally Hansen x Crayola Sonic Silver

Press Sample

Are you into the metallic trend? Today's sleek silver is what got me into the metallics love in the first place. Please enjoy Sonic Silver from the Sally Hansen x Crayola Glam Rock collection.

Sally Hansen x Crayola B'Dazzled Blue

Press Sample

I'm getting into the final polishes of the Sally Hansen x Crayola Glam Rock collection and these last 4 are all dark and vampy. Today is B'Dazzled Blue, a sapphire blue metallic. I have high hopes for this one.

Sally Hansen x Crayola Metallic Seaweed

Press Sample

Another week! I can't believe we're almost into February - last year was both a blur but also feels SO long ago. I was really interested in today's color - Metallic Seaweed in the Sally Hansen x Crayola Glam Rock collection. This metallic teal may just make my purge.

Sally Hansen x Crayola Sheen Green

Press Sample

IT'S FRIDAY! I don't have any plans but I just love Fridays in general. Today I'm pulling out Sally Hansen x Crayola Sheen Green, a lime green with lots of sparkle.


Sally Hansen x Crayola Metallic Sunburst

Press Sample

Yellow nail polish is so tricky - normally it has such a problem being opaque. Did Sally Hansen x Crayola Metallic Sunburst meet the same fate? 


Sally Hansen x Crayola Alloy Orange

Press Sample

Hump Day! I've been so excited to see the old throwback Geico commercial with the camel. It just makes me smile. Today I have Sally Hansen x Crayola Alloy Orange, a tangerine orange. I do love that Sally Hansen went all out with the rainbow here.


Sally Hansen x Crayola Bittersweet Shimmer

Press Sample

Today is a big day for us! I hope to have more news later on soon. I grabbed Sally Hansen x Crayola Bittersweet Shimmer, a pink tinged red. This one is very similar to me to Big Dip O'Ruby but let's see.

Native War Paints Niizh

Nothing To Disclose

Still going through the Purge and today I reached into my VIP Bag from PolishCon Minneapolis. I wasn't able to attend but I was able to snag a VIP bag after the fact on their website. This is Native War Paints Niitz, a deep cerulean with gold to green shimmer. This is pretty but did it make the Purge?


Sally Hansen x Crayola Shimmering Blush

Today I have another from the Sally Hansen x Crayola Glam Rock collection. Here is Shimmering Blush.

Jamberry Stormy Seas

Press Sample

Clearing through the polish on my desk and I kept passing over Jamberry Stormy Seas. This is a deep blue creme that I had worries of staining. Did it pass the Purge?


Sally Hansen x Crayola Razzmic Berry

Press Sample

Sally Hansen has been killing it with their Crayola collaborations and their new Glam Rock collection follows that trend. If you've been looking at my Instagram, I did a story on the sweet guitar PR box that was sent out. The best part about these polishes is that they are 3 in 1 with a built in base and top coat. They also claim to be 1 coat coverage. First up I have Razzmic Berry.


Vapid Leviathan

Nothing To Disclose

Happy New Year! I'm absolutely determined to get my polish under control and in ONE room this year and that means parting with things that I don't know that I'd wear for more than a few hours. How did Vapid Leviathan hold up in my personal Purge? Find out below.
