Fair Maiden Polish: Stargazer

*Purchased by Me*

Hi guys! One of my favorite flowers is the Stargazer Lily. I love getting them in arrangements, but I love them in my garden more! I have one placed right outside our front door so that I can smell them as I come in and out of the house. I know many people hate how they smell... but I love it!  When I saw that Fair Maiden Polish had a polish named Stargazer, I had to buy it! And I am SO glad that I did! Fair warning, this post is a little photo heavy. I had trouble picking photos!

Cult Nails: Lime Light

*Purchased by Me*

Hi guys! Earlier this year, one of my favorite brands, Cult Nails, announced that they were closing. I was saddened by this news because Cult Nails polishes were some of the first that I discovered, and I was never disappointed with the quality of them. About a month or so before the liquidation announcement came, Cult Nails released a LE Secret Collection. Of course I picked it up! The collection ended up being a shimmery blue, a waxy green, and the gorgeous glitter that I am going to share with you today!

Anonymous Lacquer: Fangalicious 2.0


Hi guys! Hope you guys had a great weekend! I had a nice lazy weekend. I played with some planner supplies, and on Sunday, my husband and I went to go see Inside Out. I absolutely loved it! It was super cute, and a pretty clever way to show how we are driven by our emotions. Just be sure to bring some tissues!

Today, I want to share one of the polishes that I won a few months ago from MakeUpMom123. I had heard about good things about Anonymous Lacquer, but I hadn't tried any of the polishes yet. I was really excited when I heard that I'd won 2 polishes from Anonymous Lacquer!

Mystery Polish Time!

*Purchased by Me*

Happy Friday guys! I hope you are staying cool where you are!  Luckily the temps here haven't reached as high as they forecasted earlier this week, but it's still way to hot for me! 

While I tend to shy away from big polish boxes that are a complete surprise, I do like smaller surprises.  There's a big difference between the risk of being disappointed over a $50 polish box vs. a single $10 polish. One of my favorite makers, Pahlish, often has mystery polishes on her site. Sometimes, it is mystery holos or mystery Bespokes. I have never been disappointed with any of the ones that I've received. Today, I want to share my most recent mystery polish from Pahlish that I purchased in March 2015.

HPB Presents: Beach Nails

*Nothing to disclose*

Hi guys! Summer has taken up residence in South Carolina, and I'm not too happy about it. I'm more more of a Fall weather girl! The highs this week are going to be 99... all week. I am going to melt! I just hope this is just an anomaly, and not an indication of how warm July/August are going to be! 

For June, the Hobby Polish Bloggers selected the theme of beach nails. Each blogger can interpret the theme however they choose - whether it is nail art or simply a beachy polish. My nail art skills are no where near as awesome as some of the ladies in the group, but I do like trying, and I use these link-ups to challenge myself to be a little more outside my comfort zone. Plus, I can't get better if I don't try!  I wanted to be a little different and instead of doing a beach scene, I deconstructed the look a bit, and made each nail a separate part of the scene.

Lucky 13 Lacquer: No Power in the 'Verse Can Stop Me

*Purchased by Me*

Hi guys! Today's polish, "No Power in the 'Verse Can Stop Me" from Lucky 13 Lacquer is inspired by Firefly - a fabulous little television show that was too awesome for its time, and was cancelled too soon (TOO SOON!) Luckily you can catch the episodes on Amazon Prime or Netflix (and if you haven't watched it, I really suggest that you do! It's a space western!)

Pahlish: Train Underwater

*Purchased by Me*

Hi guys! A couple of month's ago, Pahlish celebrated its 3 year anniversary, and part of the celebration, they re-released some of their earlier polishes.  I was super excited about this release because I love Pahlish's polishes, and I didn't discover the brand until the first part of 2014 (so I missed out on so many pretties!!)  One of the polishes that I picked up was "Train Underwater."
