Pretty & Polished Navy Pier

Nothing To Disclose

Continuing to pull through the PolishCon Chicago 2016 box that I had by my desk and today is Pretty & Polished Navy Pier. The bottle shows a deep inky blue with gold and orange glitters and it also has some sprinkles of rainbow holographic reflective glitter in it too.


Lou It Forward You Get A Polish!!

Nothing To Disclose

I feel like I'm starting to see a small light at the end of the tunnel of my polish. It's a good feeling because I like just having polish that I want around. Today I picked up Lou It Yourself You Get A Polish!! from the PolishCon 2016 VIP bag. Now, the brand has since rebranded to Bluebird Lacquer so this polish is definitely a relic. This is a medium blue polish with scattered holo and blue shimmer.

Sally Hansen Silver Stallion

Press Sample

I feel like I'm barely making a dent in my box of polish but today I grabbed Sally Hansen Silver Stallion, a silver metallic. I'm getting major E.T./Katy Perry vibes.

Sally Hansen Heather Hustle

Press Sample

After using Thyme is Money the other day, I figured I wanted to try more of the Insta-Dri polishes that I had here. (Literally, more than a dozen - don't judge.) Because I had so many, I had to just close my eyes and blindly pick and I ended up with Heather Hustle, a lavender creme.

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.

Sally Hansen Thyme is Money

Sally Hansen has always been a great mainstream brand to start a polish addiction with. They have a wide range of lines including today's Insta-Dri collection. Today's polish is Thyme is Money, a green toned grey creme.

Dare to Wear Laced Up

Press Sample

So I was cleaning up my desk and found a box of nail polish that I had forgotten about. Inside were a bunch of polishes from the past couple of years and I am determined to pair down so today I have Dare to Wear Laced Up, a pink creme nude from the Fall 2017 Exposed collection.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer This Fruit Was Bruised

Nothing To Disclose

I typically don't care for mini bottles of polish but when this bottle of Lollipop Posse Lacquer was in my VIP bag from PolishCon Chicago 2016, I had to make an exception. This Fruit Was Bruised is from the Summer 2015 Midsummer Midnights collection and it's a deep purple/burgundy holo.


Ever After Millennium Park

Nothing To Disclose

It's crazy when I think about how much nail polish I have sitting around my house that's never been tried on. One of those is Ever After from the VIP bag at PolishCon Chicago 2016 called Millennium Park. It's a lavender a light linear holo and fuchsia flakes. Additionally, my bottle has UBS (ugly bottle syndrome) where there's a white pigment that has settled into the bottom of the bottle. This doesn't affect the formula or application of the polish.


Cupcake Polish The Bean

Nothing To Disclose

You know the phrase "Don't judge a book by its cover"? Well this is very much a don't judge a polish by it's bottle in the shade situation. When I got my VIP polish from Cupcake Polish in PolishCon Chicago 2016, I was not loving the silver shimmer but then I saw this polish under flash and WHOA.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Buried Secrets

Nothing To Disclose

One of my favorite things about PolishCon is learning about the new-to-me brands like today's Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. This is Buried Secrets, which is a dark blue shimmer and was in the VIP bag of PolishCon Chicago 2016.


Darling Diva Qilin

Nothing To Disclose

I decided to go another week of indies on the blog because frankly, I have a lot of them that I've never worn. Today I pulled out Darling Diva Qilin which was a event exclusive at PolishCon Chicago 2016.

Nothing To Disclose

I'm continuing through my boxes upon boxes of polish and today I pulled out an oldie from 2013. This is Different Dimension Don't Be The Santa Of Everything, which is a glitter bomb of red, green, and silver round glitters in a clear base from the Happy Holly Days collection.

This weekend I'm headed to PolishCon NOLA and I'm so excited. Not only am I getting to be around all my polish friends, but I get to hang out with a coworker who I haven't seen in almost 3 years too! (We work for the same company but in different states.) In slight celebration, I grabbed a colors by llarowe polish today from PolishCon Chicago 2016. This is a purple/blue duochrome with scattered holo. Up top with just the polish, the purple is shining through but what happens when I put it on and have my hand in the photo?

KBShimmer Hashtag You're It!

Nothing To Disclose

I can't believe it's already April! This year is definitely going by fast but I feel like I say that every year. I'm trying to balance my blog out with indies and mainstream again especially as I go through and purge my polishes so today I have KBShimmer Hashtag You're It! from the Summer 2017 Summer Vacation Collection. This is a grape purple polish with holo glow flakes (silver?) that has a duochrome that looks sometimes more red, sometimes more blue. Mind blown yet?
