ORLY Euphoria Collection (Summer 2019 Color Pass Box)

Hello lovelies! I wish I could say I'm looking forward to Summer but I'm really actually dreading it. The heat, the kids home from school and their boredom, the trouble sleeping at night... no fun. But I am loving all the bright fun polishes so there's that! The new ORLY Euphoria collection consists of four creme polishes with excellent formulas and two fun matte glitter toppers. If you purchase their Color Pass Box you will also receive the ORLY Bonder base coat and some nail art decorations (my box was missing them). Let's take a look..

Polish Pickup June 2019: Weather Phenomena

Hello hello! For some untold reason my baby has decided to fight every single nap this week so posting has been difficult. The Polish Pickup goes live tomorrow though so I better get this post up! I have been voting for the weather theme for months so I was very happy when it was finally chosen. I am fascinated by weather phenomena, especially storms, and just knew there'd be some gorgeous polishes this month. Let's take a look..

Rogue Lacquer Come Ride With Me and Rogue-aversary Duo

Hello lovelies! Are you ready for some more beauties today? Is your wallet suffering like mine this month? All of these gorgeous summer colors are making my heart happy! I have six shades from Rogue Lacquer to share that were debuted at the Indie Shop in Anaheim this past weekend. The four neon shades are from the "Come Ride With Me" collection inspired by well loved Disneyland rides. These are creme/jelly formulas- heavy on the jelly- that are sheer to really make those color shifting flakies shine. The other two crellies are the Rogue-aversary duo with light creamy bases and fun, colorful components. Let's take a look..

Zoya Barefoot Summer 2019 Collection

Hello lovelies! I have the new Zoya Barefoot Summer 2019 collection to share! There are twelve shades in all- including cremes, shimmers, and one glitter topper. Most of the formulas were good, and a couple took a little more effort. I wish I had the Z-wide brush for all of them because I think that would have made a difference in application. Let's take a look..

Hello lovelies! How gorgeous is this collage of colors! Looking at these bright and happy shades makes me warm and fuzzy inside, lol.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Metallic Matte

Hello lovelies! Today I have some new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri shades to share! All six of these shades are matte but I personally preferred the sparkly look with glossy top coat. I included swatches of both so you can see for yourself. I'm a fan of the Insta-Dri line (I swear I own most of them) but the brush is always the one thing that I think could be improved on. While it's just a bit to big usually, all of these brushes were cut unevenly :(. Let's get to the swatches..

Girly Bits Springles, Spring 2019, NOLA LEs, April CoTM, & The Und8ables

Hello lovely Society Sisters!! I was so happy to get a new post out yesterday that it's given me hope that I can still catch up with all the ones I'm behind on! Thank goodness for my Instagram account because I am still pretty consistent at posting about five times a week. So many factors have collided together lately that has seriously slowed me down. A few weeks ago I got the stomach flu for the THIRD time this year! That was enough to really set me back but also.. my baby is SO active and I'm chasing him around more and more. Spring around here is such a short season, I've been spending more time outside working on my yard before it becomes too hot. I've also dedicated a lot more time to working out and getting in shape. So some bad, but mostly good things! Okay story time is over, I hope you enjoy this long post of recent Girly Bits releases!

BTW please forgive me for the major formatting issues in this post. Blogger is a piece of junk and I can't figure out how to fix them without starting all over.. >:(

Polish Pickup May 2019: 1980's

Hello Society Sisters! Of course being an 80's baby, I have to be excited about this month's Polish Pickup 1980's theme! In case you are unfamiliar, the Polish Pickup is a four-day event each month where dozens of indie nail polish brands create limited edition polishes inspired by the chosen theme. In addition to polishes there is the "Indie Pickup" on the same website which offers cosmetics, hand & nail care, jewelry, etc, during the same dates. Let's take a look..
