Winter is the worst! Everyone keeps on getting sick and it's only December. If you follow my Instagram account you'll have already seen these polishes.

I'll be trying to catch up on that this week so if you see multiple posts a day, that's why!

The limited edition "I’d Have Ugly Nails Without Nikki” Duo was created to c
elebrate Nikki’s 5th anniversary with Glam. The duo consists of two multicolored holo bombs that apply easily with full coverage in two coats.

ORLY Deep Wonder Collection (Winter 2018 Color Pass Box)


Hello lovelies! Today I have swatches of ORLY's Deep Wonder collection to share. This collection is part of the Winter 2018 Color Pass Box that also included a BIG tub of ORLY Cuticle Therapy Cream, and Pravana Intense Therapy hair mask. I haven't tried the hair mask yet but I like the feel the cuticle therapy, though the scent is a bit grandma-y. The Box is a really great deal for those who love to buy full collections, plus if you read on to the end I have a discount code for you! I really like the color range in the collection, it has a very 90's vibe for me. The formulas were all very nice with a couple of one coaters. Let's take a look..

Glam Polish Dark Arts Collection (Limited Edition)


Hello my lovely Society Sisters! I was just reading through my last Glam Polish post from a month ago and I was sick with a cold then, and I am sick once again! What the heck?! Anyway, I am always so excited opening a new PR package from this brand! What's really fun is that they're wrapped in a napkin sort of a deal, with labels on the outside. So I do this fun guessing game of what the polish will look like to fit the name. Is unwrapping things half the fun for you too? Are you ready for these pretties? I have five of the shades from the Dark Arts Collection, all of which are fantastic. They all applied beautifully with no issues. Let's take a look..

Cupcake Polish is having their second annual The Vault event where they bring back customer-voted favorites for a very limited time! This year, three fan favorites that were previously all limited editions will be re-released for six days only (details below). These special edition polishes have been closely matched to the original formulas to match as closely as possible and will come with a special product label designating that they are part of the special edition The Vault series.

KBShimmer Winter 2018


Hello my beautiful Society Sisters! I have the KBShimmer Winter 2018 collection to share! Yay! Tragically, I broke a nail a couple weeks ago so my nails are just a touch shorter than I'd prefer in my photos. On a good day that would be the worst thing to happen, but this was a BAD day because I also backed into and broke our garage door. Yeah. That was rough. Good thing we have pretty polishes to distract us from emotional breakdowns!

"This winter, travel with KBShimmer on a Winter’s journey through some of winters favorites. This 12 piece collection celebrates the feel in the air, the cozy vibe from bundling up, and festive times with friends."

BLUSH Lacquers Sea Water Shimmers Part II Collection



Hello lovelies! I have a gorgeously moody and shimmery collection form BLUSH Lacquers to share today! You may remember my Beachside Sunset collection review from a few months ago which I raved about. While I still think it's my favorite collection of the year, this one has so much unique beauty of its own. If you like shimmer polish but haven't tried BLUSH Lacquers.. What. Are. You. Waiting. For. Seriously they do shimmer like nobody's business. The formulas were almost entirely consistent, except where noted, and I used two coats plus top coat for each swatch. Let's take a look..

Hello lovelies! I have the Essie Fall 2018 Collection to share today! I forgot that Essie updated their brushes and was once again so pleasantly surprised by what a difference it makes.

The formulas were all consistently smooth and easy to work with, just as I come to expect from this brand. Let's take a look..

Zoya Element Fall 2018 Collection

 *purchased by me

Hello ladies! I'm excited to share the Zoya Element Fall collection with you! I purchased it a few weeks back when Zoya had an awesome deal (essentially buy one, get one free). At first glance it may seem a bit boring and repetitive with all the pinks, reds, and purples. Honestly though I was pleased with almost every shade and there are many that I can't wait to wear again. It seems to me that the creme formulas have changed to be a bit thicker. I don't mind that much, I just wasn't prepared for it at first. I know I had some staining from one/some of the darker shades but can't say who is the culprit because I noticed it later. That's no surprise though with dark reds. Well let's get into it already..

Polish Pickup September 2018: "Horror Movies"


Hello friends! I have some beautiful limited edition polishes for the September Polish Pickup "Horror Movies" theme. It's been years since I've watched a horror movie. I used to enjoy them (somewhat) but finally got to a point where I found no pleasure in being deeply disturbed. I love me a good thriller (think Hitchcock), but introduce anything demonic and I'm done. There are only five polishes in this post but it's a longer one because of two thermal polishes and a little nail art at the end!

OPI Peru Fall/Winter 2018 Collection

*purchased by me

Hello lovelies! I love sharing OPI collections, though I don't always get the chance to. When I first spied the Peru collection I though I knew I wanted to purchase it right away. Although the individual shades aren't all that original, I'm a sucker for a pretty palette! The formulas were all on the thinner side but still built up nicely. So on the whole I'm still happy I snatched these up. Let's take a look..

BLUSH Lacquers Beachside Sunset Collection

Let me tell you, I was not disappointed! The collection consists eight sunset and beach inspired shades with strong shimmer and subtle shifts. The formulas are consistent and easy to work with. I also love the large flat and rounded brush that makes application extra easy. Are you ready to check out what is probably my favorite collection of the year?

I always look forward to Carolina's Fall collections and this one did not disappoint. She has a knack for creating a lot of variety in finishes and the formulas were all wonderful. Let's take a look..
