Greetings and Nailutations,

It's day 2 of Digit-al Dozen week!  The theme is tropical and yesterday I did a tropical sunset and today I'm adding a tropical drink.  Who doesn't want a fruity tropical drink when they are laying in the hammock on the beach?

August Indie Pick Up: Sweet Sage Scents Wax Melt

Greetings and Waxutations!

*Press sample*
August is a special month because not only were we graced with Polish Pick Up, but it's the first month of Indie Pick Up!  What is Indie Pick Up?  Think of Polish Pick Up but without the polish - indie make up, hand made items like soap, jewelry, lip balm, lip gloss, top coats, cuticle products, a top coat or base coat and WAX!  Today I'm sharing Sweet Sage Scents' contribution to the musical inspired Indie Pick Up.

Dark Horse Lacquer Summer Escapes Shimmers Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations!

*Press Sample*
It's been awhile since I've posted - I've had a lot going on.  My mother and niece were visiting for the last 3.5 weeks, the tree at the house they were staying in fell down due to a huge storm, I flew back to Seattle with my mom and niece for my mother's retirement party and then lastly attended the Seattle Indie Shop.  (Yes, I totally convinced my family to hold the retirement party the same weekend as The Indie Shop....#priorities!)  :)

Today I'm sharing the first collection from Dark Horse Lacquer - Summer Escapes Shimmers.  It consists of 5 shimmer polishes that can be swatched to opacity in ~3-4 coats, used as toppers AND THEY STAMP!!  I also have an extra polish to share that was sent to me as well!


Let's get to the swatches!
