Hard Candy Sky Swatch

**Nothing to disclose**
It's Friday, and I'm beyond tired. My little one was home sick yesterday so I'm keeping it short and sweet today. We are going old school. 

I've had this beauty for a while and recently pulled it out to use as undies and I had to take some shots of it on its own. I forgot how much I love it.

SinfulColors Curry Up Swatch and Review

**Purchased by me.**
I was at the grocery store with my munchkin a few weeks back and a new SinfulColors display caught my eye. There was only one polish on the entire display that I didn't have. It was a fantastic green with flecks and a shimmer. Hell to the no, I was not going to pass it up!

CDB Lacquer Flowers Bloom and Birthday Surprise Swatch and Review

**Purchased by me**
I'm keeping it simple today. A few weeks ago CDB Lacquer had a birthday sale. There was only one polish I really wanted, and it said it was sold out. I mentioned it in passing and she said she had found an extra bottle. I was beyond happy and snagged it up! I get to show you all that coveted beauty and her special birthday polish.

Lorelei Lacquer Adventure Time Collection Swatch and Review

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, especially those of you two had a three day weekend. Hubs doesn't get holidays off so we had a fairly normal weekend. We went driving around and headed to our favorite small town to eat at this little gem of a cafe (we discovered it by accident one day). We ran into a parade so of course we had to hang out to watch it. I'm not one for parades, but a small town parade is a lot of fun! I'm not fully converted, but I don't think I'll be able to say no to a small town get together now. After the parade, and lunch at the little cafe, we headed over to our favorite farm for some homemade ice cream and to get some other little goodies. We had forgotten the farmers market started back up so we missed that on Saturday, but I've already made note so we can go next Saturday. I'm super excited to be able to get back into the swing of that. On to why you're really here...

This post was originally to be for Monday, but I blanked on it being Memorial Day until some patriotic products came in. I'm beyond excited to show off these beauties from a brand new indie. Lorelei Lacquer is a new 5-Free, hand mixed, indie company, founded by the creative Jeanine, that will be opening up shop, officially, on June 26th. However, I've got her introductory collection on the blog today, because it will be available to pre-order on Friday May 29th! Her first collection is inspired by Adventure Time, a cartoon that you either love, hate, or know nothing about. I have a quirky 5 year old that absolutely LOVES it, and I've grown fond of it as well. Anything that promotes imagination, no matter how off the wall it is, I'm for. She originally got into it because of my brother. It was something special she could share with her uncle. 
The Adventure Time Collection is a 7 piece (used to be 8 but there were multiple complications with BMO so it was pulled for now. She is looking into solving the issues though, so don't worry) collection inspired by some of the main characters in this fun and quirky cartoon. To get you in the mood, I've included the opening to the cartoon!

LOOK Nail Color LOOK Proud Swatch and Review

**Press Sample**
Today is Memorial Day. I originally had another post planned for today, but when LOOK Nail Color sent me their LOOK Proud colors for their 4th of July event, I knew today would be the perfect day to show them off. Yes, they are 4th of July colors, but they are still patriotic and are perfect to help honor those who have fallen while fighting for our country.

LOOK Nail Color is a new brand that is available at select Walgreens. I was beyond excited when they contacted me to review because I hadn't seen it available at my local store yet. Their new LOOK Proud collection is a basic red, white and blue for the 4th of July.

Leesha's Lacquer Amethyst Killed the Bastard Swatch and Review

**I won this polish in a giveaway. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
What's better than finding a new indie polish brand? Winning a giveaway and getting to try a new indie brand!! I recently won a giveaway from Leesha's Lacquer and got to pick a polish from her Winter is Coming Collection. It was hard to choose, but in the end I chose Amethyst Killed the Bastard. I love a vampy plum!

Finger Paints In the Monet Swatch and Review

**Purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
It's been a really off morning for me. The munchkin woke up on the wrong side of the bed and made everything dramatic this morning. I couldn't get to the coffee quick enough! I decided not to over think things today and show off a polish I had swatched and didn't get a chance to show off with all the press samples that came rolling in. 

I picked up this Finger Paints polish a month or so ago at a random Sally Beauty run. I believe I grabbed it from a clearance bin. The glitter caught my eye. That's the excuse I'm sticking to. ;o)

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Partial Dancing Girl Collection Swatch and Review

**The products in this post were provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
I'm still trying to decide if I can say "Happy Tuesday" or not. I'm so tired! We had a huge storm here last night and the thunder kept waking my munchkin. I will admit, I'm typing this while fighting with myself on if I should continue to type the post or go back to bed. I can usually push through, but I'm just really tired. 

Ok, so we all know I'm going to push through. The excitement of showing you all a new indie outweighs the need to sleep. Lollipop Posse Lacquer is the hand made, 5-Free, vegan friendly love child of Karen, a special education teacher from Ohio by day and a fellow polishaholic by night. Her introductory collection is the Dancing Girl Collection. Each polish is named after a line in a Tori Amos song. This collection is NOT one to be missed! I have three of them to show you today.

Sweet Heart Polish Sweet Summer Memories Collection and Anniversary Polish Swatch and Review

**The products in this post were provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
Happy happy Monday, everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had a nice relaxing weekend. Hung out and did some crafts with the munchkin Saturday morning, went out for burgers, then went to the local farm to feed the new calves, we were going to stay and enjoy some fresh ice cream but a storm came through so we decided to go "storm chasing" and ended up driving through the woods and did a little hiking in the rain. Yes, I know, a little odd for us to have burgers before feeding the calves. I guess it's better than having burgers AFTER feeding them? Either way the burgers were delicious, and the calf we got was adorable! He was a month old, and loved the attention. He would lean into our hands when we were petting and scratching him just like a pup. Sunday, was relaxing day with the family and laundry day. It was nice and much needed.

Back to the reason you came, Sweet Heart Polish's new collection. The Sweet Summer Memories Collection is a set of four white crellies. Each filled with glitter and iridescent micro flakes. In addition to the Sweet Summer Memories Collection, Cassandra is releasing a special polish celebrating her two year anniversary of making beautiful polish. You won't want to miss any of these!

Warning - I had a series of unfortunate breaks. Nubbins ahead.

Liquid Afterglow Lacquer Swatch and Review

**The products in this post were provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review and photography. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
We made it to Friday!! It's been a pretty full week around here! I'm kinda surprised I got a post out everyday, as I haven't felt well most of the week. You guys have been spoiled with new indies this week for sure! Today's new (to me) indie is Liquid Afterglow Lacquer, a 5-Free company that was started back in 2013. She had a wide range of polishes available in her shop, and I've got six to show you all today.

The Don Deeva Swatch and Review

**The product in this post were both purchased by me and provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
Well, it seems to be new indie week on my blog! I recently came across this new one while playing around on Instagram. The Don Deeva is a fairly new 5-Free and cruelty free indie polish company. I browsed her website for days trying to narrow down what I wanted to try. I wanted more, but sucked it up and bought 2. I just had to have Chrome Pepper and you cant have enough pink neons so Pink Tart was mine! I figured it was a start for a new (to me) indie. Then, my package arrived and she tossed in Blueberry and Jersey Girl!! Jersey Girl was one of the others I was eyeing. I couldn't wait to get to work.

Top Shelf Lacquer On the Rocks Collection Swatch and Review

**The product in this post was provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review and photography. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
It's the last day of my Top Shelf Lacquer series. You ready for some sparkles?! The On the Rocks Collection is a set of six holographic glitter toppers. I coordinated with another one of Top Shelf Lacquer's bloggers so we wouldn't swatch them over the same polishes. She popped them over the neons, and I popped them over the pastels. They pair up PERFECTLY!

**Products in this post were provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review and photography. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I have a lot to show you this week. Some exciting new things! On this dreary Monday I have the wonderful pleasure of introducing you all to a brand new indie. Top Shelf Lacquer is the colorful baby of Amy, a lacquer lover based in Cincinnati, OH. It is a 5-Free (no Formaldehyde, no Toluene, no camphor, no DBP, and no Formaldehyde Resin) indie. Top Shelf Lacquer will be opening shop Friday May 15, 2015 at 12 pm EST. She will be releasing three collections when the shop opens: Ladies Night Out Martini Menu Collection, Adult Soda Shoppe Collection, and On the Rocks Collection. Oh, did I forget to mention all of her polishes will be named after drinks. Hence the name. Isn't it fun?!

Over the next 3 days you will get to see all of these amazing beauties. Today, I've got the nine vibrant neons that make up the Ladies Night Out Martini Menu Collection.

**Purchased by me**

Happy Friday to you all!! We made it to the end of the week! Today, just so happens to be my 6 year anniversary with my husband. In honor of our anniversary, I thought I would show some lovely soft beauties from Zoya. I grabbed these back when they had the "Mystery Minis" promo going on and I totally forgot to show them off!

LynBDesigns Pigment of the Imagination Swatch and Review

**Purchased by me**

It's a warm day here. I'm enjoying the AC with all my sleepy animals. I wanted to show off a beautiful LE polish I got from LynBDesigns. She had a sale a little bit ago and offered an LE gift with purchase. She makes some great LEs so I had to jump on it.

OPI OPI..Eurso Euro Swatch and Review

**Purchased by me**

Since yesterday's post was so long, I decided to keep it short and sweet today. I recently came across this stunning OPI at Sally Beauty. I went in to find some of the discontinued China Glaze polishes. They had pulled them all off the shelf and dumped them into a shopping basket. I was browsing through the basket and this stunning blue kept catching my eye.

SuperChic Lacquer High Voltage Collection Swatch and Review

**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.**

Happy Star Wars Day!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I took my daughter to see the new Avengers film. That was definitely the high of our cleaning and laundry filled weekend. It was sooooo good! If you haven't seen it yet, GO! You'll love it! My munchkin is already bugging me to take her again.

I don't have any fun Star Wars nail art for you (we both know I don't do nail art), but I do have the gorgeous, new High Voltage Collection from SuperChic Lacquer!! It's just as good right? Well, after the swatches, there are a couple awesome announcements so pay attention after enjoying all the lovelies!

CDB Lacquer Spring Awakening and Whimsical Wishes Swatch and Review

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

A very happy Friday to you all!!! WHAT?! It's May? Geez Louise!! When in the world did that happen? Anyone else as baffled as I am?

Let's start this month off right! How about a new (to me) indie? CDB Lacquer started last year, but I just recently started really hearing about them. They are a 5 Free, hand mixed independent brand. I have to say, I don't know why more people aren't raving about CDB Lacquer. I had a super hard time trying to narrow down my order, when I finally did, I was extremely satisfied. Then, they arrived, and I was blown away. Even more so once I got them on my nails.
