SuperChic Lacquer Into the Woods Collection Swatches and Review

**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

Happy Monday, lovelies!!! This week is going to be extremely crazy! I might not have posts every day so bear with me. It's my little munchkin's first week of school...ever! So, of course our household is a huge ball of mixed emotions. My husband and I are taking turns breaking out into tears because we can't believe it's already that time, and, of course, our daughter is so excited and has been driving us nuts because she's been wanting to go to kindergarten since she was 2. Crazy kids!

Island Girl Neon Trio Swatches and Review

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

I've got the last of the Island Girl beauties, that my girl friend gave to me, on the blog today. It's so sad. I don't have any new Island Girl polishes to try out. However, I adore the few that I have and can't wait to do more with them! Since this is a trio, none of them have names. I hate when that happens. There won't be any text until after the pictures, so just some eye candy for you all today pretty much! :)

I couldn't be more excited about today's LynBDesigns post! When Jennalyn told me she was doing a Big Bang Theory inspired collection, I admit, I went through more emotions than I probably should have.

DazzleGlaze Retro Doll Collection Swatches and Review

**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.**

I'm super excited for today's post! I was approached by Candace, the lady behind Radiantly Vivacious/DazzleGlaze, to review her newest collection. When she told me it was called the Retro Doll Collection and inspired by old Barbies I knew I had to say yes! My mom used to collect Barbies when I was younger and I always had a blast hunting for them with her. It turns out a lot of the ones the collection is inspired by were favorites of mine when my sister and I would play together.

LynBDesigns TOTD

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

I went and got another pedicure with my mom and daughter last weekend. It wasn't nearly as good as the one I reviewed here. The lady who did my nails wasn't paying attention and messed up my big toe on my right foot. So, I had to redo it myself when I got home. I was so upset. I really HATE doing my own toes. But I absolutely LOVE the polish I had her use. This is another sneak peek at a LynBDesigns polish that will be released on Friday, but will be on the blog on Wednesday. Ready?!

NOTD Whimsically Fun With Marshmallow

**The products in this post were both provided to me by the manufacturer or purchased by me. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

I have a little NOTD (Nail Of The Day) for you all! My mother was in town over the weekend, and I had to throw something on my nails to keep me from "working" while she was in town. I mixed a little old with some new and threw together a combination I was super happy with.

LynBDesigns Comparison

**The products in this post were gifted to be my a friend and provided to me by the manufacturer. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

I ended up having a girls day on Monday. My mom was in town for the weekend, so my daughter and I just spent some lazy cuddling time watching some movies she got for an early birthday present. Now, I've got a slight migraine so staring at a screen is doing me no favors. Gonna keep this short, sweet, and informative. 


I run a LynBDesigns fan group (if you're a fan and want to request to join, the link is below), and I was recently asked to compare The Credible Hulk and Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder. I had been meaning to do the comparison since I received Absinthe as a gift, I just totally forgot. So glad, someone requested it.

I couldn't wait for the package to arrive because I told her to surprise me. I got so many beautiful ones, but I had to start with this one.

I recently babysat for a friend, and as a thank you, she set it up for me to get a pedicure from her favorite salon/technician. I was in dire need for one and was extremely grateful! I was so pleased, I decided to do a review, so beware, there's a photo of my toes.

Cameo Colours Lacquers TAG NYFW Catwalk Claws Swatch & Review

**Disclaimer - This product is solely a creation in honor of NYFW. We are not affiliated, associated, authorized, sponsored, endorsed by, or in any other way officially connected with NYFW.**

I have been waiting to do this post for so long!! This is the Cameo Colours Lacquers polish I tried to do a couple weeks ago, but when I was swatching it, we realized that I was sent one from an earlier batch and it had been changed since. She sent me a brand new bottle, and I'm so glad she did. As much as I loved the first version, this one is absolute perfection!! Trust me!! 

*Note - please excuse the boo-boo on my ring finger. Not sure how it happened, but I don't photoshop, so you're going to have to deal with it for a moment.*

It's the first day of August!! And have I got an exciting post for you all today! Recently, Barielle asked me what products of theirs would I use for the perfect manicure.
