The Holo Hookup March 2019: London Calling

Hello my lovely Society Sisters! March's The Holo Hookup theme is "London Calling" and I think the polishes match it so well. Of course this is coming from someone who's never been to London or the UK, but I think I've watched enough British movies and tv shows to know ;). Also as someone who's from Seattle I think this could have worked with that city if you swapped the red shade with green. Real quick, if this post is full of mistakes please forgive my sleep deprived brain. My youngest two are sick and I am so out of it! This month the contributors are the three permanent indie brands- Cupcake PolishDifferent Dimensionand Glisten & Glow- with guest brand 'Ard As Nails!

ORLY Radical Optimism Collection (Spring 2019 Color Pass Box)

Hello lovelies! Today I have swatches of ORLY's Radical Optimism collection to share. This collection is part of the Spring 2019 Color Pass Box that also includes a full sized ORLY Nailtriation Nail Growth Treatment and a deluxe sample of Purlisse Watermelon Energizing Aqua Balm. The moisturizer has a yummy scent that I would rather have in a lip product and not all over the face, but I'll give it a try anyway. OH! And a sticker! I am obsessed with stickers and that seriously was the most exciting part about this box for me. I've stuck it to my Helmer organizer alongside my other stickers. Now let's not forget about the beautiful nail polish. I am enjoying the happy color palette and the formulas were consistently good for all six shades.

"These sophisticated yet bright tones harness the power to calm the senses, while simultaneously energizing the spirit. Fresh colors like aqua blue and light coral work to alter out moods by igniting a sense of hope and renewal for the season. This spring, spark your imagination and awaken your psyche with a healthy dose a Radical Optimism."

Polish Pickup February 2019: Famous Duos

Helllllo! I was hoping to get this post up yesterday but my morning was spent getting pictures taken of my crazy cute baby, and then the rest of the day I had an awful headache. So I am doing my best to focus before another one hits. February's Polish Pickup has a most interesting theme this month, "Famous Duos". It's interesting because it can be interpreting in a number of ways. A maker can choose a famous duo and represent it in one polish. Or they can make two polishes, one for each of the pair, and offer one at the PPU website and one at their own. OR they can team up with another maker and tackle the duo together. Clear as mud? Good! Let's get to it..

Nail Polish Society's January Spotlight: Colores de Carol

Hello Society Sisters! Today's post is the beginning of a new blog series- a monthly brand spotlight! Each month will include an interview with the maker, sprinkled with swatches of my favorite polishes, and extra fun tid bits. For January I chose to spotlight the wonderfully talented Carolina of Colores de Carol. I have a special place in my heart for her because after a full year of blogging she was the first brand to take a chance on me and send me PR. It was hugely encouraging, especially after it went well enough that she wanted to work with me a second time. Over these years I have loved seeing her brand grow and evolve. I get so excited when her packages arrive, she keeps creating so many gorgeous polishes! Let's meet Carolina..

Girly Bits January CoTM 2019

Hello ladies! Today my older kids are back at school, so now I feel like I'm back in the swing of things. I am much more comfortable when everyone's on a schedule (vacations are kind of stressful!), and thankfully they both enjoy school. Today I have two totally stunning limited edition polishes from Girly Bits. Pam is consistently creating beautiful shades but I am especially loving these! I love that she's started off the year with what I am considering two staple colors that are still very unique in their own right. Let's take a look..

Happy New Year, Welcome 2019!

Happy New Year my lovely Society Sisters! I am so ready to start things over with a fresh new year. How about you? I was looking at my New Year's post from 2016 (here) and had to laugh at my goal setting. This year I'm feeling inspired to make bigger and better goals for myself. Resolutions sound a little too.. resolute.. and rigid for me right now. Goals seem to be a little more flexible and forgiving. Maybe that's just me.
