NOTD - My birthday mani

**The products in this post were purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Sorry, I've still been sporadic with posts lately. My daughter was sick for almost 2 weeks, then the hubby got sick and now I've been infected. Vicious circle! 

Anyway, this past Saturday was my birthday. The big 3-2. Eessh! Luckily I don't feel 32, other than being sick at the moment. I had to cheer myself up with a bday mani.

NOTD - Holiday Card manicure

**The product in this post was purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own.**

Can you guys believe this year is almost over? I still can't get over how quickly this year flew by. On Friday, my family took our holiday card photos. I wanted to show you all the mani I did for it, even though it didn't end up making an appearance on the card.

LynBDesigns This is Halloween

**The product in this post was purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Yes, I do understand it's December and that Halloween was over a month ago, but I just got this beauty in from LynBDesigns and I had to show you all. There was no way it was going to wait until next Halloween. On the plus side, it's inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas, so obviously I could just say it's a Christmas-y polish based on that fact and not the name. haha

NOTD - Unconventional Thanksgiving Day mani

**The products in this post were both press samples sent to me by the manufacturer for my honest opinion at a previous date or purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

I hope those of you that celebrated had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!! My husband actually had a 4 day weekend so we had some wonderful family time just the 3 of us. On Thanksgiving Day we decided to go see the new Disney flick, Frozen, before finding a place to have dinner. I decided to do a quick manicure to go with the movie instead of the holiday itself.

Rainbow Honey Tidal Wave, Diamond Weapon and Phoenix Down

**Press sample**

I've got three gorgeous polishes from Rainbow Honey's new The Final Battle collection. The collection consists of 15 new shades inspired by Final Fantasy VII. 

It is divided into three parts: 

Part I, The Battle "plays off of some of the main elements in the of the game: the heroes and the ultimate faceoff between the Planet's Lifestream and the Meteor; Phoenix Down is a nod to the recurring battle item throughout the Final Fantasy series.".

Part II, The Summons "depicts five of the attacks used by the beasts and monsters summoned in the game - a crucial part of any battle!".

Part III, The Weapons "created by the Planet as a form of self-defense. The bio-mechanical monsters were massive and powerful and I have taken the chance to create a durable and colorful representation of each one.".

SuperChic Lacquer Calico Cougar and Buddy Vampire

**Press sample**

I've got two polishes from SuperChic Lacquer's Halloween collection to show you all today. I know it's late, but with the computer issues backing me up I wanted to make sure I was still posting things in the order they were received to make sure I remained fair to all. 


Calico Pumpkin is now named Calico Cougar. It is a "blackened base packed with a golden shimmer and filled with copper, gold and fuchsia glitter in multiple sizes and shapes". 

This is three coats of Calico Cougar. Full opacity. This polish is black, but because of the color of all the glitter it gives off a deep, dark, chocolate brown shade. Not complaining. This is beautiful! The specks of fuchsia throughout are absolute perfection. This polish wouldn't be the same without them.

Buddy Vampire is a "blackened purple base filled with multiple sizes and shapes of red and purple glitter scattered with a shimmer".

This is three coats of Buddy Vampire. Full opacity. A stunning and playful glitter-filled polish. Buddy Vampire was inspired by an app that the owner of SuperChic Lacquer's son made for iTunes. If you visit the app the inspiration is so very noticeable. What a fun way to combine the family's hobbies. :o)  

SuperChic Lacquers makes beautiful glitter polishes. The formula was the same as always and applied like a dream. Clean up was not an issue...as usual. I've never had a single problem with her polishes, they are always so much fun and so well made! Her upcoming collection is looking amazing as well! Keep your eyes open, ladies and gents!! 

You can grab both Calico Cougar and Buddy Vampire on SuperChic Lacquer's ETSY shop for $10 a bottle. Their bottles are so much fun and worth every penny! Go get yours and check out some other's as well!!

LynBDesigns All Holo's Eve and Giveaway - CLOSED

**press sample**

**CLOSED**

Was finally able to steal my husband's computer for a bit to be able to get this posted! My phone is being temperamental when it comes to actually making posts. (I'm going to blame it on the phone, but really I'm completely confused!)

I've got a beautiful VERY limited edition beauty from LynBDesigns to show you all today. It wasn't originally going to be a limited edition polish, but she found out she can't get the pigment anymore. She's made 30 bottles and that's what's available, but I've got an extra bottle to give to one of you lucky people!!

Cameo Colours Lacquer Hallowicked Duo

**press sample**

Sorry for the long periods of time between posts. I'm still trying to figure out this blogging from my phone thing. It's taking some trial and error and a lot of patience. I don't know when I'm going to be able to get a new computer, but I'm hoping sometime soon. Anyway, some of the pics aren't all that great. I had to reswatch the polishes and take all the pics with my phone since my computer won't stay on long enough for me to email the pictures to myself. So bear with me until I'm able to get back to being able to use my camera and edit on my computer. Enough about that...now onto what you came here for.

Wet n Wild Fatigue Glam, Left Left Left Right Left and ATTEN Hut!

**The products in this post were purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

I'm really loving the textured polishes, so when I heard that Wet n Wild had a small set of them out, I had to hunt them down. I couldn't find anywhere that had the display though. I was so distraught. While grocery shopping at my local Wegmans one day I "happened" to walk by the beauty aisle and the display caught my eye. I swear I might have even squealed a little. I decided to grab 3 of the 6 colors.

Hallowicked Movie Themed Nail Art Contest

The lovely Cameo Colours Lacquers and I were talking and we decided on a fun little contest to start off the Halloween season. We thought a Halloween movie themed nail art contest would be a blast! I love movies, as long as they aren't too scary, but I can handle some awesome nail art!

**The product in this post was purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Today, I get to show you all this beautiful limited edition beauty from LynBDesigns! I was one of the lucky few to be able to purchase a bottle. I FREAKING LOVE IT SO MUCH!! I'm on this orange kick right now. When I saw this polish I knew it had to be mine, and not just because it's practically the same color as our kitchen (see last pic) and not just because LynBDesigns is one of my absolute favorite indies out there (seriously, if you don't have any of her polishes you're totally missing out!)!!!

Ellagee Get Away From Her. You Bitch!

**This product was provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

I know I started showing off the Sci-Fi Geeks collection from Ellagee a while ago, but I've had this one polish that has been driving me crazy! Get Away From Her, You Bitch hates being photographed in it's true form. At least for me it does. I'm going to show it to you as best as I can. I was told it was ok if I couldn't get a picture, because the wonderful I Feel Polished was able to get a great one!

**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

Hello to all my lovelies!!! How I missed you all so! I'm sorry I took the month off, but anything and seemed to go wrong at home and when we finally got over the humps it was family vacation time. I really needed the time to regroup emotionally. I'm back now, and I have some catching up to do! So let's get started...

Ellagee Twin Suns

**The featured product in this post was provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Sorry I took the last week off, but I really focused on sleeping and trying to get me and the munchkin to feel better and trying to NOT make my husband sick. We happened to get a little sun though so I was able to finally get shots of Twin Suns, the solar polish in Ellagee's Sci-Fi Geeks collection. It's been over cast and rainy here for over a month, so I made sure I used the sun while I could. No matter how crappy I felt!

China Glaze Escaping Reality

**The product in this post was purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own.**

It's Wednesday!! The week is half-way over! I wasn't feeling all that great last night, so I went to bed early and didn't get a chance to swatch something new. I went through my swatched folder to see what I had in there, that I hadn't shown you all yet and I found this beauty to show you guys. I snagged this China Glaze from the clearance bin at Sally Beauty a while back.

August Giveaway - CLOSED

CLOSED

I know! YAY! Another giveaway! I hated skipping last month, but it had to be done. :o( I'm back with a small giveaway for August. I'm sorry, ladies, but this one is US only.

Zoya PixieDust Fall 2013

**Press sample**

EEEEEEEEEEE!!!! The Zoya Fall 2013 PixieDust beauties are on the blog today! I have mixed emotions about this. On one hand, the Pixies just get better and better with each collection that comes out! On the other hand, I had a very bad day and every nail on my swatching hand broke after I got half of this collection swatched. So half way through, you'll see a drastic change in the size/shape of my nails. One broke so low I couldn't even them all out. I apologize in advance, but it would have been wrong of me to keep you all waiting. 

Let's get to it!

JK Customs Tears of Gaia

**The featured product in this post was provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

It's Thursday and I've got a BEAUTIFUL glitter top coat from a brand new indie company, JK Customs. My friend, and fellow polish-a-holic, decided to start her own line! I'm so excited for her and agreed to review some polishes for her. She sent me three and I shared my concerns on two of them. She has since tweaked one of the formulas, but didn't send me a replacement so I'm not going to share that one with you. The other was just having a bad day and needed to be worked on a bit more. I was over the moon in love with one of the polishes though. I still get to show that one off to you!

Ellagee Not The Droids You're Looking For

**The featured product in this post was provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

It's Wednesday, so happy hump day everyone!! I've got another beauty from Ellagee to show you all today! In the other two reviews I did, I said that they were from the Science Fiction Double Feature collection, but it has since been renamed to the Sci-Fi Geeks collection. So, I've got the third polish from the Sci-Fi Geeks collection to show you all today. This one is Star Wars inspired!



Not The Droids You're Looking For is a clear base with small silver hexes, gold dots and blue dots.

This is three coats of Not The Droids You're Looking For over two coats of Lime Crime Crema De Limon topped with Cult Nails Wax That top coat.






Application of Not The Droids You're Looking For was decent. The dots kept sinking. She did include a stir stick to help mix things back up, but it didn't really help much. However, I REALLY ended up loving this. The clear base wasn't too thick so the three coats didn't bother me. At first, I wished I got more of the dots on my nails, but after I looked at it for a minute, I really enjoyed the random placement of the few I did get. Despite the sinking glitters, this ended up being enjoyable. No other complaints other than that.

The Sci-Fi Geeks collection is finally available at Ellagee's shop!! You can purchase Not The Droids You're Looking For (as well as Beam Me Up and Trust Me, I'm the Doctor) for $9 for a full sized bottle and $4.50 for mini bottles.
