Formula X Brain Power swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! I hope you are having a good Friday. 🙂 Today I have a polish that you’ve seen on the blog before, underneath Formula X Alchemy III. Let’s take a look at Brain Power by itself!

Formula X Brain Power | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Brain Power is a camel brown creme polish. Though the formula is thin, it self-levels nicely; it does dry satin. This is 2 coats and no top coat. 

It’s nice to have such a neutral polish in my polish arsenal but I’m glad I didn’t pay full price for this!

Pahlish Bubble Yum (Bespoke Batch) swatch + review

Gift buttonHi everyone! Are you having a good week? I hope so! Today I have a polish that was a gift back in September (my birthday month!), Pahlish Bubble Yum. This was a Bespoke Batch from sometime in 2016.

Bubble Yum is a bright pink polish with gold and pink flakes. My pictures show it so much more dark than it is – it is a bright pink polish!

Formula had a good thickness to it; it does dry satin. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.

I do like the occasional pink polish and this one has just enough oomph and pizzazz to keep my interest. What do you think of it?

Annual #RAOK4Lucy Day and manicure

Good morning everyone. Today is a quick post to remind you that it’s the anniversary of my mom’s death and that on social media today I’ll be posting the random acts of kindness my children and I will be performing in her honor. I’ve talked about my mom before (and memories of Almond Roca) and about the RAOK Day if you care to read through these posts. This is last year’s manicure.

I’m finding it harder and harder as the years go by to remember my mom – well certainly not her in a general sense but in a specific sense – the feel of her face, her voice, her laugh, the way she would hug me and tell me to hold my babies tight. So each year as her anniversary comes up, I try even harder to honor her and the lessons she taught me – as a mom, wife, and human being. Each year on this anniversary, my kids and I go throughout our city performing random acts of kindness as a way to honor her. I’m also finally getting a memorial tattoo this year! If you’re able to join us, please do so – take a pic and share it on ig or Facebook with the hashtag #RAOK4Lucy. Continue reading

Guest Post by The Jedi Wife: iKat nail art manicure

Greetings, everyone! It is such an honor to be a guest blogger here at Be Happy and Buy Polish while Jessica is busy taking care of her new little bundle of joy! My name is Jen, and I am the blogger behind TheJediWife.com. For my guest post, I wanted to share a cute ikat nail art look with you; let’s check it out!
Between the holidays in December and then Valentine’s Day in February, red has really caught my attention lately. I’ve been wanting to do something fun with my bottle of Ellagee Polish Bad Romance, and I’m really loving this design!
On my nails with the ikat pattern, I started off with Zoya Purity as my base. On a mat, I stamped the ikat pattern from Color Club Abstract stamping plate with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I filled in some of the open areas of the ikat pattern with Bad Romance before transferring the design onto my white base and then sealing everything in with Glisten & Glow‘s HK Girl top coat.
I really enjoyed creating this look, and with several fun images on the Abstract stamping plate, I’m going to have to play and design more nail art looks with it for my blog! I hope this post has been inspiring for you as well, and I hope to see you over on my blog on occasion! Thank you for reading, and thank you to Jessica for allowing me to share this with you!
Thank you Jen! I love this funky look and it’s using a nail art look that I so admire. Bad Romance is gorgeous! Please go check out Jen’s blog, TheJediWife.com, and give her a follow on Facebook, instagram.
