Super Moon Lacquer July 2016 Special Edition Duo Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
I've got more pretties from Super Moon Lacquer to show you all today. Mardi, the creative beauty behind The Howling Boutique/Super Moon Lacquer, is calling this the July 2016 Special Edition Duo. Technically, it's not being sold as a duo though. The first polish in the "duo" is the first polish in her "Mentor Project" series. This series is to honor all the other makers that helped her start making her own polish. I think this is a lovely way to honor those that were so generous with their time and tips. The second polish in the "duo" is actually a group custom. So make sure you have joined The Wolf Pack, then keep reading for my review and to see swatches.

Pretty and Polished The Veil Collection Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
I have the newest collection from Pretty & Polished to show you all today. This is The Veil Collection. It is a set of six beautiful shades that all turn this milky sort of sheer when warm. I tried to do this really sneaky thing where I showed sneak peeks of next month's collection under The Veil Collection, but it didn't turn out how I wanted it too. I wasn't able to get any fancy nail art done, Chelsea's other swatchers are MUCH better at that sort of thing than I am. But I have some straight up swatches to show you all. I am still going to try to play around with these. Maybe a saran wrap mani or something. Let's get to it!

Turtle Tootsie Polish Elvenspun Trio Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
I have a special post for you all today! Chrissy, the lady behind Turtle Tootsie Polish, was approached by Elvenspun to create a trio for the third anniversary of her shop. She designed the polishes, and Chrissy created them. These two ladies work well together, because I am loving what they came up with! Elvenspun has a mixture of things in her shop...from jewelry to sculptures to glassware to paintings and even some covered journals. There are some darling things there, you should definitely poke around. But now, what you came here for...swatches of the lovely Elvenspun Trio!

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Summer of '96 Collection Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
You all ready for a throwback collection?! Later tonight, Lollipop Posse Lacquer will be releasing her Summer of '96 Collection. Each of the seven polishes in the collection are inspired by and named for songs that are celebrating their 20th anniversaries this year. (UGH makes me feel so old!!) I love that Karen draws inspiration from music, poems, and books to bring some gorgeous polishes into our lives. I kinda feel as if they are mood polishes. Like this is what your nails would look like every time you listened to the song/read the poem or book that each is inspired by. Ready to get a look at these and travel back to 1996? Yes, of course I included the music...get your headphones ready!!

Bad Bitch Polish Vodka Trio, Whiskey Trio, and Rum Trio Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**

I hope you all can hold your liquor!! I've got three more trios from Bad Bitch Polish's Liquor Cabinet series to show you all today. I've got the past two trios (Vodka Trio and Whiskey Trio) that released during my little hiatus, and I also have the Rum Trio that is releasing tomorrow. I almost did the last trio as well, but I figured it would be a bit much. I really want my nails to grow back out before I swatch those. (I really hate breaking nails!) So you'll see the Tequila Trio in a week or two. You've got time to prep your wallets for that one! You ready for happy hour? It's 5 o'clock somewhere right? *wink*

Nouveau Geek Box 80's Video Game Theme Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
My husband and I were in the process of moving our daughter's room and renovating it while she was away visiting grandma for a couple weeks. Then, it took a bit for me to get my polish room situated where it was usable. It's still a mess, but I am able to get some work done at least. I'm late to the party with this one, since tomorrow is the last day to purchase this, but you all are going to want to pay attention to this one. 

This month's Nouveau Geek Box theme is 80's Video Games. I mean, this is one of the ultimate nostalgic themes I'm most excited about. I am a bit upset that no one created a polish inspired by my favorite old school video game, Galaga!! However, Bohemian Polish, Lollipop Posse Lacquer, Turtle Tootsie Polish, Black Label Nails, Sassy Pants Polish, and First Sunday Handmade all did a beautiful job bringing this theme to life in our favorite little bottles.
