Patricia Refresh Me

Press Sample

I really want to spend the rest of this year getting my collection in order, and I have a back log of polishes to review. One is Refresh Me from Patricia by Patricia Yankee. This is a very soft mint green creme that has a lot of white to it.

Painted Polish Catching The Canal

Nothing To Disclose

Painted Polish is an indie company that I've purchased from a few times at PolishCon and I always say "I'm going to buy more" but when I saw Catching The Canal on the Polish Pick Up Flashback, I finally pulled the trigger and made my first Polish Pick Up purchase. Apparently this was the April 2019 "Famous Works Of Art" contribution from Painted Polish and was inspired by Claude Monte's impressionist painting "Le Grand Canal." This is a beautiful periwinkle crelly base with a rainbow of color-shifting flakies. 

Morgan Taylor Oh So Shifty

This was the first year since Morgan Taylor's launch that I didn't get to meet up at Cosmoprof North America and see what the girls had in store. While I was definitely sad, I did have a bright spot (literally!) when the new Illusions 2019 collection showed up! These 6 shades all have a duo-chrome finish as you can see in the bottle above. Today I'm wearing Oh So Shifty, a green to blue duo-chrome.

It may be August, but it's still pedicure season here and right before I gave birth to my little boy, I decided a blue pedicure was in order so I grabbed Cuccio Aquaholic from the Summer 2019 Heatwave Collection. I was so impressed with how well it applied that I wanted to wear it as a manicure too.

Morgan Taylor Plumette With Excitement

Press Sample

Hello dear friends! It's been a hot minute since I blogged last. I gave birth last month to our 3rd boy and that's been fun, and then this past week I had my gallbladder removed as well. Nothing like some surgeries to make your summer! So last month, my mother in law was in town and she asked if I could do her nails. She wanted a certain color by another company (which oddly, I don't own) but she mentioned she liked pearly colors, soft pink, etc. I pulled out 4 of my Morgan Taylors and she chose Polished Up which I blogged about back in 2014. One of the colors that she didn't choose was Plumette With Excitement from the Spring 2017 Beauty & The Beast collection. I was actually a huge fan of this collection but didn't realize I hadn't worn all the colors yet, so this was a great time to dust off the blog.
