It will be released tomorrow, and I have swatches and my review for you all today. Part 2 is Things to Do, and those will be released at a later date.

The Project Runway Collection is a set of eight polishes, each has a name relevant to Project Runway. I love love love Project Runway, but sadly we haven't had cable for over a year so I haven't been able to watch the last two seasons. Don't even get me started on missing the all star seasons.

Magic 8 Box July 2016 Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
Calling all 80's babies and those who love rainbows!! The July Magic 8 Box theme is Rainbow Brite!!! I may have squealed a little when they told me the the theme a while back. I could not wait for this box to get to my house. I was that crazy person hitting refresh on my computer, just waiting for it to tell me the mail person had dropped it off. I barely had time to open my box when I got notice that one of the polishes needed to be replaced. I hid the polishes so I wouldn't be tempted to swatch them without the replacement. Issues were taken care of and the replacement arrived, and I think I may have put my kid to bed early that night so I could jump into these pretties. 

For those of you that don't know, the Magic 8 Box is a box that is released every other month with 8 full sized polishes. Each month has a different theme. The four main brands that are in every box are Philly Loves Lacquer, Smokey Mountain Lacquers, Rica, and My Indie Polish. Then, each box will have four guest brands. The guest brands for the Rainbow Brite themed box are Contrary Polish, Dreamland lacquer, Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish, and Candied Apple Polish. Okay, is that good enough? Can I show you the polishes now?

Pretty and Polished July Beauty Box Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
I've got the gorgeous July Beauty Box from Pretty & Polished to show you all today. The Beauty Box is new to me, I will tell you more about those details at the end of the post, so I wasn't really sure what to expect when I received it. I opened the box to see three full sized polishes, a small mani melt, and some fun flags and watermelon slice fimo slices. Anxiety immediately set in as I'm not one who does nail art, but once I got through the swatching I had a clear vision of the simple nail art I wanted to try. You guys!!! I nail arted!! I really did! It's not perfect, because I free handed, but I did it!! Those of you who know me know that it is a pretty big deal. haha Well, keep reading to see more details!

Faeries and Folklore Nail Polish Welcome to Faerieland Trio Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
Faeries & Folklore Nail Polish is at it again. Personally, I think Molly went a little crazy. Not only is she releasing her Finding Nemo Collection Part 2 this Friday, but she is also releasing the limited edition Welcome to Faerieland Trio, which I am showing you today, AS WELL AS two limited edition polishes that will be the start of an on-going series called Let Me See Your Bling. Yes, all of that is being released in a couple days. 

On to what I'm showing you today...originally this was the Austin Powers Trio that I gave away in my blog's 4th anniversary giveaway back in March. After looking at it, she knew they had to be renamed...not Austin Powers polishes at all. She drew inspiration from her brand name and got the Welcome to Faerieland Trio. It is much more appropriate! I showed swatches back then, but since they are now being released, I think I should do a full post on them. Let's get to it!

Polish for Pit Bulls Duo Fourth of July Edition Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
Our favorite pair is back at it!! Polish 'M and Cameo Colours Lacquers have joined forces for another one of their amazing Polish for Pit Bulls Duos. I'm not normally one who goes for "patriotic" polish, but this duo is hands down my favorite one they've done so far! You can tell that they had a lot of fun creating this duo. Really though, I don't know what these two ladies love more, creating the polish or being able to help out two rescues that are near and dear to them. 

Keep reading to see the polish and find out more about which rescues these polishes will be helping!

Nouveau Geek Box Star Trek Theme Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**

Next up for the Nouveau Geek Box is a Star Trek theme. I was looking forward to this one because I'm not too familiar with Star Trek myself. I grew up in a Star Wars house. I'm not opposed to it, I just haven't gotten around to watching the series. (I've seen one of the new movies, but I know that doesn't quite count.) Well, even though I am not familiar with Star Trek, I was looking forward to seeing what this month's makers had in store for us. Instead of 4 to 5 polishes an some extras, we get 5 full sized bottles and one mini bottle (but it is on the larger side of minis). The makers chosen for the Star Trek themed Nouveau Geek Box are Bohemian Polish, Turtle Tootsie Polish, Cinema Swatch Lacquer, Lollipop Posse Lacquer, and Black Lace Cosmetics. The box will be available later today, so let's dive in!
