Colores de Carol New England Escape Polish Pickup Exclusive

*press sample

Summer is over! Yay!! At least the kids are in school, now I'm just waiting for the temps to drop below 90 degrees. I was planning on finishing this post yesterday but I instead enjoyed the eclipse! It was a super cool event to share with my kids. Speaking of Fall, I have for you an exclusive shade for next month's Polish Pickup! The Polish Pickup is a collaboration between many indie brands where they each make a shade based on that month's theme that is available for a limited time. The great thing is that it's not a box, so you don't have to buy any shades you don't like. They're available on an individual bases. Let's take a look at next month's Fall Foliage & Fun offering by Colores de Carol..

Kokie Cosmetics Nail Polish Swatches

Hey friends! Today I have a brand that I recently discovered  in my Ipsy Glam Bag a couple months back. Kokie Cosmetics (pronounced Co-key) is a US based company that began in 2015. Their polishes are 3-free and I have been really impressed with each formula. I received these from Octoly and the package was called "Unicorn Nail Kit", but looking at the Kokie website it appears they are all individual shades and weren't part of a collection. Let's take a look...

*press sample

Hello lovelies! Can you believe it's been over a month since I last wrote an UberChic Beauty review post? It's like the time has moved so slowly and yet so quickly at the same time. If you missed my one in June you should check it out (here), it was one of my favorites. To be honest I have more UCB products to review but they will have to wait a little longer while I work on getting caught up. Trying to blog while momming ain't no easy task! I'm hoping that once school starts I'll have things under control. Let's take a look..

Fair Maiden Polish Hollywood Royalty August 2017 Polish Pickup

*press sample

Today I have a limited edition polish inspired by the one and only Grace Kelly. Those who know me well know that I LOVE classic movies. For many years of my childhood we didn't have access to tv but instead watched movies, lots and lots of them. My Dad introduced use to all the best classics, which of course included movies like "Rear Window" and "Dial M for Murder", my two favorite Grace Kelly movies. She may not have been in that many movies (becoming a princess is a life changer I guess), but she made a lasting impact on Hollywood. Let's take a look at the polish..

Madam Glam One-Step Gel Polish Swatch and Review

Hello ladies! I am starting off this week with a small but happy post! I have been blogging about nail polish for over four years and had yet to try out gel polish. Honest to goodness it just intimidated me. I have worked so hard to get to my nails as strong and healthy as they are and I was afraid that if I didn't know what I was doing with gel polish that I would mess them up. I am so happy to report that my first experience was really successful!
