Pretty & Polished Veil Collection Nail Art and Review


Hey everyone! Today I have a post that is WAY overdue. I will heartily admit that I struggled with this one. This was my first foray into thermal polish territory and I was slightly overwhelmed. The polishes I have to share with you are the Pretty & Polished Veil Collection. This is a six piece collection of thermal toppers that become transparent with heat. Sounds pretty cool, right? Well they are cool! I just had a learning curve with how to photograph and best show these off to get over. I've been holding on to this post going back and forth with whether I should just start over, but I've finally decided I just need to show this and I think you'll get the point!

UberChic Beauty Mandala Love and Wild West 02 Stamping Plate Review


Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing with you a couple stamping plates from UberChic Beauty! The Mandala Love Uber Mini plate is a smaller plate with beautiful images that are vignettes of a larger, whole Mandala. The Wild West 02 plate is a full size single plate and has a variety of mainly geometric designs. I've done two nail art looks for each plate. Let's take a look!

Guest Post by KellieGonzo

Hello everyone! I have another wonderful guest post for you today. The great and amazing Kellie from the blog KellieGonzo is gracing this blog with her presence and I'm am just thrilled! Kellie has some of the best swatch photos on the nail polish block and has influenced WAY too many of my purchases. After years of following her blog, I've had the pleasure of getting to know her more personally. She is super sweet, humble, and has a hilarious sense of humor. Take it away Kellie!

Pretty Serious Serious Business Collection and Pantone Duo


Hello! Today I have a fun collection that I think any NPA (nail polish addict) can appreciate. The Pretty Serious Serious Business Collection is made up of six shades and each is named after lingo we obsessed polish people use in our daily lives. For those not quite so deep in the polish world, I have a brief explanation for each name. You know I love a good name, but the shades don't disappoint either! There are quite a few unique colors that I know you'll be wanting to get your hands on.

Guest Post By Very Emily

Hello ladies! I mentioned last time that I haven't been around much this month because I have a more than usual amount of things going on. Also I am due for a break and needed a few weeks of just taking it easy. I asked some of my blogger friends to help me out with guest posts which I'll be sharing for the next couple of weeks! 

My first guest post is from someone who hardly needs an introduction here, Emily of the blog Very Emily. She is my nail bestie, confidant, and an all around incredible person. Wise beyond her years, she is my guru who gives me guidance, especially when I'm losing it. Which is way too often, haha. I'm so fortunate to have her on my blog again. Take it away Emily!


Hello Nail Polish Society fans! I'm Emily aka Very Emily. Emiline and I have been friends for quite some time now which is evident from the numerous posts you can find on this blog under the tag "Very Emily". Haha! Even I was surprised to see so many, we've definitely collaborated (under many different forms) a lot, and no one is stopping us any time soon! 
For my guest post I decided to use one of the "reject" manicures from our previous "Paint All The Nails Presents Dotticures" link up. I use the word reject lightly because I absolutely loved this manicure (nothing rejected about it!) but ended up posting a different one for the link-up as I created several looks. Actually, I think this one was always destined to end up on this blog as this was one of the designs Emiline and I brainstormed when we were figuring out what to do for our Twinsie Nails. Inspired by this image I found on Pinterest. 
I started with a base of Dance Legend Grey Britain, a gorgeous speckled grey and a spot-on match for the inspiration image. Then I stamped using Messy Mansion in Carbon and Mundo De Unas in Yellow, both using the polka dot image from the KD3 plate from Born Pretty Store. Finished with glossy top coat. 
I really hope you like these! Thank you so much for having me (yet again) Emiline, I hope you're enjoying a much-deserved break!


Aaaa! Thank you so much Emily! I'm thrilled you used this look that I am SO IN LOVE with. If you have yet to discover Very Emily, you are in for a real treat! As you can see, Emily has  amazing photos with skillful writing and tons of creativity. Her blog is really professionally presented, yet she's so down to Earth and connects well with her readers. Also don't forget to follow Emily on social media through  facebookinstagram, and twitter.
