WingDust... Friday?

Hi readers! This week totally flew by and I missed out on WingDust Wednesday. Instead, I'm having my own little WingDust Friday because I hate going a week without WingDust!

Enchanted Polish "Mean Mr. Mustard"

Hi readers! I've probably mentioned it several times, but I'm currently on a quest to collect all of the Beatles inspired Enchanted Polishes. I was lucky enough to find this bad boy on Store Envy and swapped for another one, putting my count up to four out of seven!

Lucky 13 Lacquer Custom Polishes!

Hi readers! Today I have an extra dose of special to show you! A few weeks ago I was able to go to a polish mixing party at Lucky 13 Lacquer and I'm here today to show you my (and my husband's) creations!

I designed two of these shades and my wonderful husband designed the third for me. Working with Kyoti to come up with these beauties was an absolute blast and I can't wait to go back and mix some more with her!

Emerald & Ash "Deep Field"

Hi readers! Recently I've been trying to find a good mix between making sure I get review polishes swatched quickly, trying out new polishes that I've bought for myself, and searching my stash for polishes that I bought in the past but haven't yet got around to trying. I'm notoriously bad about snatching up gorgeous polishes and then getting totally overwhelmed as even more gorgeous polishes accumulate. Feel free to scold me while I have another one of those "What the hell? Why did I wait so long to try this?" moments with this polish. I knew when I bought it (over a year ago) that I was going to love it and yet somehow I still never got around to it. 

"Deep Field" the polish is actually based on the Hubble Deep Field, which is a famous series of images of just a small section of the Ursa Major constellation taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Above you can see photo of the Hubble Deep Field on the left and my macro of the Emerald & Ash "Deep Field" polish on the right. Did they totally nail this polish or what?!

Firecracker Lacquer Captivating Creatures Collection

Hi readers! I'm sorry for the lack of posts recently. If you hadn't heard, I've been crazy busy with a super fun new project that I'm working on with Courtney of Swatcher, Polish-ranger! Now that we've officially got everything running, I promise I will have more free time to get back to the swatching. I've got some super gorgeous new things to show you this month!

For today's post, I have two new polishes from the upcoming Firecracker Lacquer Captivating Creature Collection! This is their second collection, will consist of six shades (five new), and it will go live at 10am MST on August 8th. Let's dive in!

Introducing Nail Newscast!

Hi readers! I have some exciting news to share with you today! Courtney (Swatcher, Polish-Ranger) and I have collaborated on what I think is going to be an awesome endeavor.

A couple of months ago my husband, who listens to Magic the Gathering podcasts every week, asked me "Are there any sort of nail polish podcasts?" I researched, I brainstormed, and eventually came to the conclusion that a podcast where I chatted with friends I've met through blogging about anything relevant to the nail polish and blogging community could be hella cool!

And then... Nail Newscast was born!

I'll admit, this is definitely something that is totally new and (I think) a little bit scary for both Courtney and I. We have had a blast planning and testing things like audio quality on Skype and researching topics for our first official episode.

To start things off, we went ahead and recorded an introductory episode that will give you an overview of what the podcast is going to be about, when to expect new episodes, and some background on Courtney and I.

If a nail polish news podcast is something that sounds interesting to you, head on over to Nail Newscast and check out our first post! You can also find us on Soundcloud, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Bloglovin.

Thanks so much for reading!
