LevelUP Lacquer ~ Oct. 2020 PPU

*This polish was provided for review

Hello! Home from my quick little getaway and I feel so refreshed. It’s amazing what 2 nights on the water can do for you. Anyways, I am back with LevelUp Lacquer‘s contribution for October’s PPU theme of animation! Let’s have a look at this polish inspired by water breathing (10th form) from Demon Slayer (Anime series).

Constant Flux is a medium blue crelly with a scattered holographic shimmer and white and iridescent glitters in multiple shapes and sizes. I love the way the iridescent glitters subtly flash through the base color. This polish was a little on the thick side but nothing you can’t work with! This polish can be worn in 2-3 coats or layered over a darker color. I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $11. Cap: 250 US / 50 UK

I love Constant Flux. It’s something I have never seen before and it’s so very pretty. PPU will be open from October 2nd – October 5th. Don’t forget to add this unique beauty to your wish list! Links below. Have a great week y’all 🙂

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. 

R&P Jewelry ~ July 2020 PPU

*This ring was provided for review
Hello! I have something totally new for me today. I have a small review of a gorgeous ring that will be available next weekend with PPU! Brittany of R&P Jewelry is bringing you this super dainty, simulated opal, sterling silver ring. Let me give you the details.
This ring is set on a 16 gauge, sterling silver, twisted band. The stone itself is a 4mm simulated opal. If that wasn’t made clear to me I would never know. The stone is so colorful 😍 So much work goes into making this ring. First, the band is measured and cut. It is then soldered into a circle, filed and sanded, then shaped into it’s final perfect circle form. Once that part is done the bezel is soldered onto the ring. It is then filed and sanded again. The ring is then cleaned up by being sanded and tumbled. The stone is now finally set and the ring gets one final polish. I just love it. I can’t think of any fancy words to describe it because I just love it. I put it on and I haven’t taken it off. I prefer dainty, simple jewelry and this is just that! It goes with everything. Let me show you the many pics I took of this beauty. 

So? Do you love it? This ring will be available for July’s PPU from July 3rd – July 6th 2020. The ring I took pictures of is a 7. The ring that will be available is a size 8. There are only 50 available and they will cost $15 each. Wish listing is open now so hop on over and add it! Links below 🙂 Have a fantastic day y’all!

Moonflower Polish ~ June 2020 PPU

*This polish was provided for review
Good morning friends! How is your weekend so far? Mine is amazing! I got the call that our offer for a house was accepted. I’m buying a house!!! I’m so very excited that I couldn’t sleep well so here I am. Today I have for you Moonflower Polish‘s contribution to Polish Pickup‘s Cocktails & Mocktails. Shall we?
Blueberry Lemonade is a “Pinkish mauve crème with subtle hint of purple to blue multichrome sparkle.” This polish is inspired by the cocktail at the Boathouse Restaurant in Disney Springs (Orlando, FL). As usual, this polish is made for stamping and other nail art. It is suggested that if you do use it for regular wear, you add thinner to the polish so it isn’t as thick. I actually didn’t add a thing and it polished perfectly for me. I really love the color. To me it’s a cross between bubblegum and roses. The shimmer is pretty subtle but over black it really pops. That was my favorite nail. For the regular wear I used 2 coats. You could totally pull off 1 coat if you polish thicker. 

Look out for more manis with this color because it is just perfect! Polish Pickup goes live on June 5th through the 8th at 11am EST. Blueberry Lemonade will be $12.50 and there will be a cap of 75 US only. Ninja fingers y’all. Hope you have a fantastic Sunday and a very happy Memorial Day! Links below. 

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.

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.

LevelUP Lacquer ~ April ’19 PPU

*Provided for review
Hi! How are you doing this fine evening? I just watched The Walking Dead season 9 finale. Disappointed is an understatement. WTH! I expected some type of action. Well, let me show you something that is the complete opposite of disappointing. LevelUP Lacquer is back for April’s PPU and Ash nailed it ❤ She was inspired by this famous work of art.
Love Without Limits is a classic white crelly with mixed black and red glitter and a scattered holo shine. Formula on this was great for a crelly base. Plenty of glitter so no fishing. The glitter also lays nice and flat. 2 coats would work but I did add a 3rd just because I’m me lol. Don’t forget that glitter polishes are harder to remove so to make it easier use a peel off base coat. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Please be easy on my art. We all know that I am not an artist!!

LevelUP Lacquer ~ March ’19 PPU

Post number 2! And there may be a third. I just have tons to show you ❤ This awesome polish is brought to you by LevelUP Lacquer. Ash was inspired by Gloryhammer album Space 1992:Rise Of The Chaos Wizards. Shall we?
Darkstorm Galaxy is a “purple jelly packed with UCC Green/purple flakes and mixed purple glitter.” This jelly is sheer enough to layer over another color but I prefer it layered over itself. It has so much going on and the depth is amazing. It really is totally packed with flakies and glitter. It’s mesmerizing 😍 I was shocked when it laid almost totally flat. The base builds up nicely in 3 coats. There is also a really pretty shiftiness to this baby. I used 3 coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. Darkstorm Galaxy will be $10.50 USD.

LE Polish ~ March ’19 PPU

*Provided for review
Getting close guys! I will actually have 2 PPU polishes posted today. First up is this beauty from LE Polish inspired by Joni Mitchell’s Blue Album. Let’s get right into this one.
Songs Are Like Tattoos is “a shifty blue jelly with various color shifting flakes”. This could be a 2 coater but I used 3 thin coats. I feel like if your nails were longer than mine you would need the 3rd coat to cover the white of the free edge. Formula is great and evens itself out perfectly. Overall a wonderful polish. Like I said, I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. Songs Are Like Tattoos will be $12.50 USD.

Who loves Moonflower Polish? When I stamp my nails it’s the only brand I reach for lately! Nadia makes fantastic polishes and the one she has for March’s PPU is no exception! Moonflower Polish was inspired by Collective Soul’s album Dosage. Let’s check out her offering for the theme album covers.
You’re All I Need is “an indigo/periwinkle creme base with red-gold multi chrome shimmer and scattered holo.” As always, this polish is spectacular! Totally could be a 1 coater. It is mainly for stamping but it’s so gorgeous on its own. It looks best stamped over darker colors but I gotta say I loved it over white!! I used 2 coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. You’re All I Need will be $12.50 USD.
