OPI 50 Shades of Grey Partial Collection Swatch and Review

**Purchased by me.**
I know I'm a little late posting these, but I bought them on my own so they kept getting pushed back. I'm making it a point to show them off now though. I've been showing you all a bunch of bright and fun colors. Me? I love greys. When OPI released their 50 Shades of Grey Collection, I knew I had to be all over it. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to grab them right away. Then I was at TJ Maxx and saw a few of them. I might have squealed a little. Then, because I'm THAT person, I ran to Marshall's to see if they had any. They definitely had the other 2 I wanted. I immediately did my happy dance! I know you probably saw these swatches a while back, but LOOK AT THEM AGAIN! Just look at them!

Zoya Island Fun Collection Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
I know the Island Fun Collection from Zoya was released a long time ago, but the blogs were so saturated with them I opted to wait. I figured several people might be overwhelmed with all the blogs posting around the same time. Why not wait a bit, and those people can see what they missed. 

I was so excited to see this collection arrive at my door when it did. These colors are spot on and perfect! Yes, even the olive one! Trust me, it works!

LynBDesigns What Ailment'll It Be? Collection Swatch and Review

**Press Sample**
Can you believe it's already been 2 weeks since the last Harry Potter inspired collection from LynBDesigns?! Well, I've got the last of the three to show you all today. This is the What Ailment'll It Be? Collection. It is inspired by some of the sweets the brilliantly, mischievous Fred and George Weasely made for their Skiving Snackbox.

"What's a Skiving Snackbox?!" you ask? For those of you who don't know, we'll get technical here and use the magical world of Harry Potter wikia, it is "a range of sweets to make the user appear to be ill". I mean, where was this when we were in school and tried to fake being sick?! My mom never fell for that. If you didn't have something spewing from somewhere or didn't have itchy red spots all over you, you were going to school. I mean, it didn't help that I was homeschooled for the majority of my school life, but there was no faking being sick.

And if you don't know who Fred and George Weasley are...well...then...you're missing out! And that's no one's fault, but your own.

Anyway, back to why you're here...the polish! You ready?!

Top Shelf Lacquer Tropical Cocktail Paradise Collection Swatch and Review

**Press Sample**
Happy happy hump day, everyone! (Just kidding! I really hate that term.) Happy Wednesday though!! So, yesterday you all got to see the dark and mysterious The Wine List Collection. Things are getting flip-flopped today! We are going back to brights! Top Shelf Lacquer couldn't stay away from the bright beauties. Let's be honest, all of her polishes are named after alcoholic beverages. What draws us into a beverage more than the taste? You know you've said it..."Oooooo that drink is so pretty! What is that?" Right? The color and look of a drink draws us ladies in. We do enjoy a visually pleasing beverage before it even touches our lips. Well, Top Shelf Lacquer does an amazing bringing the sips from our lips to our tips with the Tropical Cocktail Paradise Collection.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Midsummer Midnights Collection Swatch and Review

**The products in this post were both purchased by me with my own money and provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
It's Monday, and I hope you've had your cup of coffee (or tea) (or whatever you enjoy in the mornings) because you need to be wide awake for today's post. Back in May, I had the pleasure of helping introduce you all to a new indie, Lollipop Posse Lacquer, with swatches of a few of her Dancing Girl Collection polishes. They were wonderful, and Lollipop Posse Lacquer was welcomed into the community with open arms. Not only will you guys flip over these beauties in her Midsummer Midnights Collection, but you'll run towards them screaming "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE!!".

She's switching things up with the Midsummer Midnights Collection. The polishes aren't all named after songs this time around. One is taken from a quote in a book, and another is from a poem. On top of that, she released darks in the middle of summer! (I mean, who does that?! Well, it's happening, just wait until tomorrow's post. You'll see more darks there too!) I'm also loving all the new music and reading I've discovered through Lollipop Posse Lacquer's collections.

You ready to see these babies up close? (I've included the videos so you can listen to the inspiration while browsing the photos.)

Lorelei Lacquer Neon Sunset Collection Swatch and Review and Giveaway

**Press Samples**
I am beyond in love with the collection I get to show you all today. I've been a Beach Boys fan since I was little. When Lorelei Lacquer hinted that she was making a collection inspired by Kokomo, I jumped for joy! The song, as annoying as it might be, really puts you in a wonderful mood. And not only was the song inspired by Kokomo, it was inspired by the Muppets music video for the song. This just takes me back and makes me happy on a whole other level!

Not only do I have swatches of Lorelei Lacquer's Neon Sunset Collection, but, at the end of the post, I have a mini set to giveaway. 

Now, I've included the video so you can listen to it as you're reading through the post.

My Top 5 Favorite Indie Polishes...from Brands That are No Longer in Business

**The polishes in this post were purchased by me with my own money or sent to me by the manufacturer to review long, long ago. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**
I have something fun for you all this Friday! I did a link up with several other bloggers. The theme was "My Top 5 Favorite Indie Polishes" and we were able to interpret that as we wished. I had such a hard time narrowing down my top 5 favorite indie polishes in general. Then I started thinking I could do my top 5 of a certain color, or a certain brand, or a certain finish, or a certain base. Even narrowing it down to any of those I would have had major difficulties. I was sitting in my polish room, completely lost, spinning around in my desk chair...when it hit me. 

I saw my wall rack with all my polishes from brands that are no longer selling polish. I'll do a top 5 favorite indie polish list from my favorite brands that are no longer in business. We always get sad when another indie bites the dust. Why not let everyone remember what we have lost so we can do what we can to not let it happen to anyone of our current favorites.

Let's get to it...in no particular order.
