Criss-Cross manicure with Baroness X, Polish ‘M, Darling Diva Polish

Press Sample buttonGood Monday morning everyone! Now that we are in the swing of school stuff, I’m hoping that I’ll have a bit more time to do stuff but I’m a little doubtful. Okay, a lot doubtful. Distraction in the form of nail art? Why that sounds great to me!

Manicure with KBShimmer Cubicle Pusher, Polish ‘M The House Always Wins, Baroness X Panty Dropper

Happy Monday to you all! Tomorrow I will have a 7 month old in the house! He is such a cute lil stinker who gets into everything and has 6 teeth. Lately I’ve had zero time to swatch polishes so I’ve been relying on manicures and swatches I’ve done months ago – like today’s manicure comes to you from June! Let’s check out this mani with KBShimmer Cubicle Pusher, Polish ‘M The House Always Wins, and Baroness X Panty Dropper.

Baroness X La Luz 2.0 nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonMorning everyone! I hope you are rested up from the Fourth of July. It has been blazingly hot here, so I’ve been holed up in the house, not wanting to move. Today I have a polish by Baroness X: La Luz 2.0; so named because the first La Luz faded. Well it turns out that there’s a pigment that caused La Luz 2.0 to fade as well. No matter, it’s still super pretty and I wanted to share it with you again!

Purchased by Me buttonShoot – is it really Saturday already? Dang – I had so many plans for this week with my kids and I think we got one accomplished (up for a sunrise on Monday). Oh well, we’ve got all summer to do stuff, right? How about some summery blue polishes from The Color Box: Blue Edition today? For some reason I’ve really been digging on blue polishes lately so I had to buy this box when it came out. (Psst, the pink edition is currently available for pre-order, and it’s featuring one of my favorite brands, Bad Bitch Polish!)

Baroness X Fire Opal over Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In? swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonAfternoon all! This post published this morning with nothing to show for it. Oops. That seems to be happening a lot lately but I gotta tell you, having a baby that gets me up all hours of the night, plus a toddler and 2 older kids that get up early in the morning – man, it’s freaking exhausting! This is why God created coffee. 😛 Anyway, how about I finally show you Baroness X Fire Opal over Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In?

I started with Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In? This was a hard polish to capture but it’s a grape purple that shifts to a red-toned purple and also to orange. It also has a hint of yellow sparkle. Formula was floody and sheer and applied patchy. 😦 This is 3 coats and no top coat. Continue reading

Random Raindrop Nail Art with Baroness X, CrowsToes Nail Color, Femme Fatale, Polished Vino

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! It’s the first official day of summer vacation and my goodness I’m not ready for the heat of the summer yet! We seem to be having warmer than usual weather here in my part of Montana so I’m dying of heat already – which, btw, we don’t have central air conditioning in my house so it can get unbearable! I’m wishing for some rain but raindrop nail art with Baroness X, CrowsToes Nail Color, and Femme Fatale Cosmetics will have to do.
