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..

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri x Crayola Glam Rock Collection



Hello my lovely Society Sisters! I am excited to share this new collection from Sally Hansen! They have teamed up again with Crayola to create a twelve piece collection in their Insta-Dri line that is right on this current metallic trend. The formula is smooth, streak-free, and covers in one coat! Added bonus for you nail art lovers is that they stamp too! Because I perfect a smoother, more cushioned look, I used two coats plus top coat for each swatch. Let's take a look..

Different Dimension You Are Beautiful Collection + POTM Shades


Hello my lovely Society Sisters! How are you all enjoying the January weather? Yesterday we got about five minutes of sunshine in between the snow and dark cloud cover. I feel like I'm living in a cave right now! To help brighten things up I have a new collection and three Polish of the Month shades from Different Dimension. I have only had limited experience with this brand and was very pleased with the consistent good formulas and beautiful color palette. First let's start with the You Are Beautiful Collection (cue Christina Aguilera)..

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.
