I am beyond excited to show you all the gorgeous They Say of the Acropolis Collection from LynBDesigns. This collection was inspired by the British game show QI, and even though I have never had the pleasure of seeing it...I now desperately want to. I have ten beautiful polishes to show you all, and I know you didn't come here for me to babble. You all came here for swatches...let's get to it!!

**This product was purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Today, I want to show you one of my favorite polishes from one of my favorite brands. This is Night of the Hunter from Cameo Colours LacquersCCL is a very underrated indie brand. She deserves much more attention than she gets. The colors are vibrant and original, she tests for months and months to make sure she only uses the best of everything, and customer service is impeccable.

Birthday/Christmas Gifts

**The featured products were gifted to me by a friend. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

My friend Samantha, the wonderful lady behind A Girl Obsessed, decided to send me a little birthday/Christmas gift (yes, I know I'm way late in posting this) with an order I made. It may be a little late, but I still wanted to swatch them for you all to see.

NOTD Zoya Matte Velvets

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

The other weekend, I decided I wanted to do a simple mani. I've been overwhelmed with things and I needed something I wasn't going to have to over think. I immediately grabbed the 4 Zoya Matte Velvets that I own: Dovima, Veruschka, Savita and Posh.

Polish Yer Hooves Pink Diamonds and Violet

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

I'm so excited that I have a new (to me) indie to show you all today. I was sent two gorgeous beauties from Polish Yer Hooves to review for you all. 

First of all, I love the name of the brand...now. It is so light hearted and fun. It makes you giggle and looking at the labels will possibly bring you to a full blown laugh. Very unique and playful! Polish Yer Hooves isn't kitsch. I have to admit, the first time I heard of this brand I rolled my eyes at the name. But past that initial "what was she thinking?" thought you get the "OMG it's so cute and makes total sense!!" thought. Then you look into what is being produced by the brand, and they are backing it up with some really fun polishes. 


Violet is a deep, rich purple with a small amount of silver and fuchsia specks to give it an immense depth. This is three thin coats of Violet. The first coat is slightly streaky, second coat evens out and the third coat to bring the color alive. I was floored at how smooth the application was. Not a stroke of clean up was needed. The color is impeccably flawless. One that you can't take your eyes off of. $9





Pink Diamonds is a frosted pink fuchsia that is scatted with holographic micro glitter. This is three thin coats of Pink Diamonds for full opacity. Once again a beautiful application. Only slight clean up was needed, but more so to ensure there wasn't any stray glitters. Between the frost and the holo, this beauty sparkles endlessly. I see this color going on my toes in the near future! $9





I love being wonderfully surprised by a new indie. There's always that sense of doubt when you try a new indie. All sense of doubt was wiped away with the first coat of polish from Polish Yer Hooves. Beautiful formulas, no issues with application...just all around love for these two lovelies. 

All polishes from Polish Yer Hooves are 3 free and cruelty free. The prices range from $3.50 for nail art pens to custom polishes for $10. Also available are cuticle oils, hand painted bottles and full sets of some of the polishes. A lovely variety to choose from, definitely worth a look! 

Both of the above swatches are topped with Magpie Shine top coat ($7) and I used Sweet Nectar cuticle oil ($6) to hydrate my cuticles. Both are from A Girl Obsessed.

Influenster Dove VoxBox

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

I was recently sent a small box to review from Influenster. This VoxBox was different from the others. There was only one item in it. There was no surprise as to what was in the box. The survey I had taken to become accepted to review was ALL about Dove and deodorant.

365 Days of Color Partial Full Bloom Collection

**Press sample**

I've got a couple beauties from 365 Days of Color's upcoming Full Bloom Collection to show you all today. The three I was sent are so perfectly soft, light and feminine. Perfect for spring! You'll be wanting to flit around in a light floral dress in no time. 


Orange Blossoms is a light nude creme, that has a slight orange tint to it, and scattered with a beautiful holo. This is three thin coats of Orange Blossoms. This is, by far, my favorite of the three I swatched. I love nudes and this is just gorgeous. This would easily be a go to every day polish when I wasn't having several swatch sessions in a row. 




Fields of Lavender is a soft pastel purple creme holo. This is three thin coats of Fields of Lavender. It immediately brought a smile to my face. To me, this is the perfect winter purple. I'm all about neons and pastels in the winter. This doesn't make me long for spring. This is all me right now! 




Running Through Meadows is a pale pistachio green creme holo. Once again, this is three thin coats. Greens are my absolute favorite, and Running Through Meadows is a killer shade of green. It's so simple and not in your face, but it still makes an impact.




All three of these had such lovely formulas and applied perfectly, as 365 Days of Color usually do. Sunny never fails to amaze me...with each new collection she just gets better and better.

The whole Full Bloom Collections from 365 Days of Color goes on pre-sale today. You can get the mini collection for $19 and the full sized collection for $36

On February 24th, the prices will go up to normal prices of $24 for the mini collection and $42 for the full sized collection. You will also be able to buy the bottles individually the holos for $5 and $8.50 and the glitter topper will be $4.50 and $8. Since these are holos they will be priced slightly higher

If you'd like to see the rest of the polishes from the Full Bloom Collection, check out Pointless Cafe's post and Cosmetic Sanctuary's post. They are stunning swatches!

All swatches are topped with Magpie Shine top coat ($7) and my cuticles were hydrated with Sweet Nectar cuticle oil ($6). Both from A Girl Obsessed.

A Girl Obsessed Custom

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



Happy Thursday!!! I'm really excited for today's post! I was recently involved in a Secret Cupid swap in a group I am in. Once I found out who I got, I started stalking her blog, Facebook and Instagram trying to get a feel for who she was. I came across this gem on her Instagram and instantly knew I had to have a custom made for her inspired by the polish.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Naked Without Polish

**The product in this post was gifted to me by the manufacturer as a prize. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Today, I have another long over due post for you all. As you may know, last year, I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of Rescue Beauty Lounge's Fan Collection 2.0. It was a wonderful experience and to finally have my dream polish become a reality leaves me practically speechless. Every time I wear this, or look at my bottle, or come across someone else wearing it, it's very hard for me to find to words to express what I feel at that moment. If you have not yet seen it, I introduce you to Rescue Beauty Lounge's Naked Without Polish.

Lacquistry Motorcycle Mama

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

Back in November I did a mani using the polish I'm showing you all today, I just hadn't gotten around to fully swatching it for my blog. I think I've been a little selfish with it. I love it so much, just keeping it to myself for a bit.
