Ellison's Organics Hamilton Inspired Trio Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**
I've got a few more pretties from Ellison's Organics to show you all today. She was contacted by a few ladies who are in the ensemble of Hamilton on Broadway to create some polishes inspired by the show. If you're not familiar with the show, it is the story of Alexander Hamilton told with a hip hop spin. Sounds stupid right? That's what I first thought. But after hearing the Hamilton panel at BroadwayCon in January, we knew we had to pay more attention to it. My daughter immediately bought the cast recording and we fell in love! It's a beautiful telling of the story of a founding father who almost was forgotten. Lin-Manuel Miranda is an absolute genius! Back to the reason you're here...the polish! Each of these polishes were inspired by costumes worn throughout the show, and named for lines in some of the songs. I've included the songs for you to listen to while you're browsing. Keep reading to check these out!

Star Crossed Lovers Box Swatch and Review

**Press Samples**

I am beyond excited about today's post!! Did you know that on November 1st it will have been 20 years since Romeo + Juliet was released in theaters? Yeah, between that and all the awesome music albums that turned 20 this year, I officially feel old. This move was my everything. When I wasn't watching the movie, I was listening to both of the soundtracks. When I realized the anniversary of it's release was coming up, I tried to rally some makers together to create a celebratory box. This box had a lot of downs before the ups began. Once the ups began, it was all uphill. Different Dimension  and Model City Polish each created one polish and added a little something extra to bring to you all the Star Crossed Lovers Box. This box is a one time thing, so don't think you'll see more of them. Ready to get a peek into what they created for you all?

**Press Samples**
And it is already time for another G.N.O.M.E. Box! Time flies! I don't even realize it until I a monthly box shows up in my mail box. I think my neighbors think I'm nuts when I start yelling "AGAIN?!" when I pull a package out of my mail box. For those of you who don't know, G.N.O.M.E. stands for Glitter Nerds Of Magical Existance. It is a monthly box with Rica and Stardust Beauty as the main makers. Sometimes it will just be them, other times they have a single guest maker. There is a guest this month, and it is Jior Couture.

(Don't pay attention to the above picture. Jior accidentally sent minis for the bloggers. But you all should get full sized ones in your boxes.)
