Moonflower Polish ~ August 2020 PPU

*This polish was provided for review


Hello!! How are we all doing? Staying safe and healthy I hope 🤞🏼 Where I am it is thundering and lightning so this is the perfect time to write about this amazing beauty from Nadia of Moonflower Polish


Lightning Crashes is a “dark purple base with purple-to-blue iridescent micro flakes and scattered holo. It can be used as a regular polish in 1-2 coats or as a stamping polish. Lightning storms over Orlando Florida. Meteorology is one of my favorite sciences. The area of Central Florida where I live is known as Lightning Alley because it’s the spot with the most lightning strikes in the northern hemisphere. The unique shape of the peninsula means there’s usually going to be a thunderstorm in the afternoon, due to the collision of sea breezes from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.” This is a deep grape color with blue flashes. It’s fantastic. I mean, I may be biased because blue and purple are my favorite polish colors, but I doubt it. The formula is perfect and only takes 1 coat. Could it get any better? YES! It stamps perfectly! I used one coat for these pics plus top coat. 












Amazing right?!?! Polish Pickup’s theme is Weird Science and it will be open from August 7th – August 10th. Lightning Crashes will be $12.50 with a cap of 75 US and 5 UK. 


LynBDesigns ~ June 2020 PPU

*This polish was purchased by me


Hey guys! How are we all doing? I’m doing really good! We just officially started the process of buying a house. There have been lots of pauses because of covid but we are finally on track. We live in a 1 bedroom apartment with a 5 month old so its a little cramped here. In the now house I will have my own nail room!! It’s actually going to be called the “noffice”. Half nail room, half office. Pretty much my nail room with the laptop and printer in there 😆 I’m psyched!! Wait, are we here for polish? Ok, let’s get to it.


LynBDesigns was inspired by the Maui mule for the Cocktails & Mocktails theme. The Lei’d Back is described as a dark purple (cold) to denim blue (warm) to peach (hot) tri-thermal with red to green to gold shifting aurora shimmer, pink to gold shifting flakes, and violet to pink to copper to orange shifting flakes. Since we are buying a house funds are slim right now but I had to have this. I am such a sucker for a thermal polish. They are just so much fun. The formula on this is spectacular and the thermal effect changes with ease. I am sooooooooo glad I got this one. I used 3 thin coats for my pics.

Moonflower Polish ~ May 2020 PPU

*This polish was provided for review
Hello! Are we all ready for Candy Land?! I am so excited for this theme. The makers really brought it this month with all the goodies. Nadia, owner of Moonflower Polish, is bringing you this awesome polish that has been formulated for regular wear! Usually the stamping polish aficionado, Nadia changed her direction for this month. Let’s check it out!
Dulce de Coco is an, “off-white crelly full of iridescent microflakies. Dulce de Coco is meant to be worn as a regular nail polish in 2-3 coats. If used for stamping, use over black for best results. It is intentionally more sheer than my usual stamping polishes in order to show off more of the microflakies. Inspired by my favorite traditional Puerto Rican candy, made from coconuts. The polish name translates to “coconut candy”.” This polish screams confection 😍 The flakies make this polish. I love that this is an off white not a bright white. It just softens the whole thing. Formula for me was a little on the thick side but Nadia has assured me she will be thinning out the batches sent to everyone else. It was still totally polishable and I only needed 2 coats for full coverage. It is so pretty stamped as well. I’m rambling so let’s see some pics.

Let me apologize for the weirdness of my skin. White does that to me. So, what do you think? I love it. It was the perfect base for some candy stamping! Make sure this goes on your wish list because there are only 50 bottles for the US only! This pandemic is affecting everyone everywhere, indies included. That leads to shortages of pigments and other supplies. That means ninja fingers are a must if you want this beauty. It will be $12.50 for a full sized bottle of Dulce de Coco. Polish Pickup goes live tomorrow, May 1st, at 11am EST. Polish Pickup is open May 1st – 4th. Links below! Have a great weekend y’all! Stay Safe ❤

















Sweet Heart Polish ~ December ’19 PPU

*Provided for review

Hello! How is everyone doing? Is your holiday shopping done? I haven’t even started lol! It’s been so busy around here. We have appointments related to the baby 2-3 times a week. We’ll get to the shopping eventually… For now, I have a gift idea for you! Let’s check out Sweet Heart Polish‘s contribution to Decembers PPU theme: Winter Is Coming!
You Sit On A Throne Of Lies “is a greige crelly base with gold flakes, taupe to green, blue to pink, and red to gold ucc flakes. It also has a copper shimmer with red and blue sparks that catch the light ever so slightly.”  This polis is inspired by the movie ELF where Buddy realizes that the store Santa is not the real Santa. Not gonna lie, I totally squealed when I saw the name of this polish. ELF is on repeat at my house until Christmas! Such a fun, family movie ❤ YSOATOL is the perfect holiday neutral polish. It’s got that wow factor but at the same time is subtle. I’m still wearing this mani right now. Super gorgeous. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches but you could totally use 2 normal – thicker coats. Formula was amazing. This polish definitely leaned more grey on me. It has more beige than my nail pics show. Check out the bottle shots for truest color. This polish will be $9.50 and will have a cap of 95 bottles for the US and 5 bottles for the UK.

Wildflower Lacquer ~ June Birth Flower

*Provided for review
Hello! Sorry for my lack of posting. I think I have hit a blogger burn out. It feels like such an unwanted chore lately. It may be time for me to take a break. I don’t mind the swatching and picture taking. I guess we shall see. For now I am here bringing you this totally gorgeous red polish. Let’s check it out. 
Kiss From A Rose is a dark red base (will stain please wear a base coat) with crystal rainbow flakies, and subtle violet to gold shifting shimmer. Holy mother of reds. This is that super sexy empowering type red. Very deep with a nice sparkle. Like it says, this will stain! I suggest doubling up your base coat!! The formula of this polish is fantastic. Totally a 1 coater. I like this one matte a lot. I also checked to see if it stamps and it does!! Of course my swatch shows 2 coats.

Ms. Sparkle ~ Flakies All Over The Place Collection

*Provided for review
Hey! How’s it goin’? Today I bring you flakies galore from the Dutch brand Ms.Sparkle!  This is a new to me brand and I am super happy to report that it was fantastic! Let’s check this quad out.
Fancy Flakies is a purple jelly base with holo sparkles, aurora pigments, iridescent flakies, ucc flakies, and holo ucc flakies. All of these polishes are very pigmented and full of stuff. Formula is also pretty much the same for all. Very smooth and very easy to work with. Even with all the flakies it lays completely even. I just love them so much. I thought this was going to be one of my top 2 but I was wrong. Just wait. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

To Flake Or Not To Flake is a cool red jelly base with holo sparkles, iridescent flakies, and ucc flakies. I love me a good red polish so very much. I thought this was going to be my top pick but again I was wrong. This is actually my third favorite of them all. It was really hard to pick favorites because they are all so effing good! This didn’t stain at all and I wore this for 3 days. It’s also very opaque so it’s really the ideal red. 2 easy coats for my swatches.

Who Do You Flake You Are? is a blue/green jelly base with holo sparkles, iridescent flakies, and holo ucc flakies. This one is my second favorite. It reminds me of a very colorful ocean bottom with clear blue waters. Like a jewel. This is another one you have to see in person to fully appreciate. There is just so much going on. It’s amazing because none of them are too busy. Absolutely stunning. 2 coats for my swatches.

*Provided for review
Hello! Today Wildflower Lacquer has some new stuff coming to her shop. One of them is this months Birth Flower. This one is inspired by lily of the valley. Let’s see this beauty.
You’re Like Lily Pretty is a white crelly with green to gold  shifting shimmer, and copper shimmer, and lime to blue to green UCC flakies, and a scattered holo sparkle. This is really nice. I don’t usually care for white polishes but the flakies make me love it. Also, lilies are my favorite flowers. All types. The color of the flakies is just really fun. It almost looks like tiny gems on your nail. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

I know, I know. My art has lily pads… It’s all I had for lilies and we have all seen what my hand drawn art looks like.  Also not sure if those flowers are supposed to be lilies but they have 6 petals like a lily. As with each monthly birth flower polish, this will be $8.50 for the month of May then it will go up to $10. There is no reason to wait since you’ll be saving money on the polish! And it’s worth it. It’s perfect for this time of year and it’s just so very pretty. Hope you all have a fantastic day!! Links below ❤

Moonflower Polish ~ May ’19 PPU

*Provided for review
It’s almost that time again! PPU is back with one of my favorite themes!! The 80’s!! I was born in the 80’s so I have been reminiscing for weeks. This may sound corny, but I’m sure other 80’s babies will understand; It was a simpler time. I appreciate the childhood I had. The things that molded me into who I am today! Times like this I wish I worked so I could buy these pretties. I shall live vicariously through you all so please buy up everything this month! I need it lol! One polish I do have is from Moonflower Lacquer. This polish is based on Puerto Rican pop sensation Chayanne and his 1987 Fiesta en America music video. Let’s have a look.
Fiesta en America is a denim blue creme stamping polish with scattered holo, red-gold micro flakes and green-blue micro flakes. This one is dynamic and so freaking awesome. Denim is a spot on description of the blue color. The flakes are such a great addition. It looks peppered ya know? Really spectacular polish. I used2 smooth coats for my swatches.

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend 🐇🐣 Have you ever seen Rocky Horror Picture Show? I have only seen it once! It was definitely different. Not for me per say. Whether you like the movie or not, you will love the Time Warp collection. Let’s check them out!

Dammit Janet I Love You is a nude base with bubblegum pink micro flakies. Such a pretty nude. Not sure that this one fits my skin tone but I really don’t care. It’s just that gorgeous. This polish is pretty opaque in just 1 coat but I would use 2 just to even it out. My swatches show 2 coats.

Late Night Double Feature Picture Show is a one coat deep red crème. I am obsessed with this color. Deep vampy reds are my favorite. I actually had a tiny bit of unevenness on the first coat so I used 2. It’s most likely because of how thin I polish. If you polish thicker you should be good with the one coat. LNDFPS also stamps! Like really freaking well. I will recommend that you polish slowly and carefully. This polish will stain your cuticles. I had absolutely no nail staining but watch your skin!! 2 coats for my swatches.

Hot Patootie Bless My Soul is a black base with metallic red micro flakies and silver holographic micro glitter. Holy mother of pearl is this one amazing! The fact that it’s a black base blew my mind. When I first got these I told Lexi that I loved her reds! No idea it was a black base. This is another one that could work with 1 thicker coat. Formula was smooth as hell for a crap ton of micro flakies! I used 2 coats for my swatches. Look at the flash shot 😍

Let’s Do The Time Warp Again is a holographic rainbow glitter topper with various size and shape glitter. This one had me staring at my nails. So blingy. I do the Time Warp dance with my daughters on Just Dance! It’s a fun quirky type song that will definitely make you move. This is a glitter bomb so a peel off base coat is a good idea. I used 2 thin coats then I sponged on a third coat for my swatches. I also put it over LNDFPS!

*Provided for review

Greetings friends 👋 I have so much stuff coming. April 12th is a very popular release date. Right now I will be showing you the Americana Collection from Stella Chroma. This collection has it all, flakes, shimmer, holo, and crème. Stella Chroma is such great quality nail polish. Let’s check them out.
Cherry Blossomis a creamy, pale shade of pink with highlights of silver holographic flakies. It is opaque in 2-3 coats. Inspired by the cherry blossoms that bloom all over Washington, D.C. in the spring.” This polish is so soft and girly. Very perfect for spring time! Formula is immaculate. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Before I forget to warn you: I am no good at hand drawn art. I just try it anyways because I want to be good 😂 Be nice ✌

The Arch “is a purely holographic silver polish inspired by the famous Gateway Arch in St Louis, Missouri. I had seen this structure many times in pictures, but when I saw it with my own two eyes, the sun was glinting off of it and it was beautiful! And as a lover of heights, going to the top and feeling it sway in the wind was amazing as well. Wear your shades and put 2-3 coats of this one on your nails.” Lover of heights? Does that really exist?! I get an upset stomach just watching high things on TV. This polish is the closest I will ever get to the top of that arch so thankfully it’s phenomenal. Nice and smooth. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. I hope you see the “arches” in my nail art!

We’re Goldenis a deep orange packed with all sorts of gold flakies and shimmery goodness with a bit of holo thrown in as a nod to the absolutely amazing Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. I’ve never been to the area, but it is definitely on my bucket list. Opaque in 2 coats.” OOOHHH This one is so good. In my next post you will see how well this baby stamps. Amazingly perfect formula. 2 fantastic coats for my swatches. This is possibly the worst drawing of the golden gate bridge ever. Sorry!!

Fenwayis a springy green cream inspired by the Green Monster in Fenway Park in Boston. Mr. SC and I are huge baseball fans and no matter what hitter is up to bat, it is super exciting to see the baseball fly over that big wall! Opaque in 2 coats.” This is my favorite. I was born into a family of Red Sox fans so you know I’m also a fan. And because I live in CT I have actually been there a few times to see that fantastic wall in person. This formula is just perfect. There really isn’t a better word because it’s so perfect lol. 2 exceptional coats for my swatches.
