Have you ever had a moment of just pure, uncomplicated, contemplative joy? I was thinking about this when I wore this polish, because of the name. Times that I just have those kind of moments are when I’m running and the sun breaks over the mountains; or driving on a road trip and smelling sweet grass on the interstate; or having a song come on the radio that takes you back to a moment in time and you can’t help but sing along.

Things you may not know about me: I’ve never broken a bone. I think I may be one of my only siblings (there are 9 of us) that hasn’t. I don’t know how common it is to not break a bone, and it isn’t like I don’t have plenty of scars all over. Don’t ask why that just popped into my head, but here we are. πŸ˜€

I’m going to keep this fairly short because I’m super tired. Mirabilis is a seriously amazing polish and if you don’t have it, you’d better buy it. There are all sorts of beautiful colors in this polish.

CrowsToes Nail Color Bitch on Wheels swatch + review [September Polish Pickup Pack]

Press Sample button

Polishes used:

CrowsToes Nail Color Bitch on Wheels for September Polish Pickup Pack, 3 coats plus top coat. I would say this is a scattered holographic red nail polish with gold glow and purple sparks (shut it, I’m having trouble thinking!).

This applied evenly, with a jelly-like formula. No trouble with staining my nails or my cuticles. I thought this might dry with a bit of texture even with top coat, but it did not.

This polish is based on the book/movie Christine by Stephen King, specifically the actual paint color of Christine! First, I gotta say I’m a huge SK fan so I was stoked to see this polish in the September “horror movie” themed Polish Pickup Pack. I’m a huge proponent of reading the books before watching the movies, and I probably read this book first in high school. Shortly after, I watched the movie. Now it isn’t my favorite Stephen King based movie but the book definitely is. Stephen King has a way of writing that you can just feel the dread creeping up on you. To this day, I still see faces in the grill of cars (older cars especially) and it freaks me out!

September Polish Pickup Pack is open this coming weekend, September 7 through 10. There are many beautiful polishes going to be available and I hope you put this one on your wish list! This will be $12 and will have no cap.

Update, per Madame Crow:
My Sincere Apologies to any that were offended by her given name…I totally spaced on this one… Fear Not! Your bottle of B.O.W. will ship with BOTH labels (just like we did with the power stone & the manslut)
The “G” Rated Version will read: β€œB!#ch On Wheels”
The “R” Rated version shown above will be enclosed with each polish. πŸ™‚

Side note: I was hoping to do nail art with this polish but as of yet that hasn’t happened. I’ll have more in a post tomorrow but I’ve been really struggling lately and so haven’t put together nail art.

Blackheart Beauty Matte Nude layered with Tonic Polish Lips

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat of base coat
Blackheart Beauty Matte Nude, 1 coat. I would call this a light peachy-pink matte polish. Formula was pretty atrocious.
Tonic Polish Lips, 1 thick coat. This is a magnetic multichrome polish that shift from pink to gold to green to mustard yellow. When a magnet is applied, a bright blue shift comes alive.
1 coat Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny

Veil nail art with Polish ‘M and Tonic Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat of base
Polish ‘M Cold Hands, Warm Heart, 3 thin coats. This applied really nicely and evenly. I would describe this as a pale sky blue base with glitters of white, pink, blue.
Tonic Polish Hush
Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny QDTC, 1 coat

Polish 'M Cold Hands, Warm Heart | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I can’t believe I waited this long to wear this Polish ‘M. It is so interesting! I think it would be too blue with the added blue shimmer and glitters, but it just brightens it up. Also it did not dry too gritty either.

You know, I just need to sit my happy butt down and get posts scheduled. Because it really makes my blogging life so much easier. It also takes forever to do a month in advance, which is why I’ve been avoiding doing it. πŸ˜€Β  Continue reading
