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

Press Sample

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

Happy Thursday! Today I'm working through the Summer 2017 Selfie collection by Morgan Taylor with Woke Up This Way. This is a hot fuchsia neon that rocked my world. 


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.
