Twinsie Tuesday: Splatter

Hiiiii!!!! I didn't forget about you guys, I promise. Sometimes, life catches up with me and I have to put my focus elsewhere. But I am still around, just working on other things, or taking some time off to de-stress and spend the day outside with my family. I hope you all understand, and know that I love my blog and I love sharing awesome nail polish and nail art with you guys!

And in that spirit, I have a fun design for today's Twinsie Tuesday post! The theme this week is Splatter! I and really excited for it, especially since I haven't done a splatter mani in ages!

Takko Lacquer Summer 2015 Collection Part 2

Hey guys and gals! Today I have the second part of the new Takko Lacquer summer collection! On Monday, I showed you all the neons and bright of the bunch, and now I have a nude, a pastel and a jelly, oh my!

I also have for review the new Takko Lacquer top coat! Since all takkitos are now infused with Vitamin E, they dry down to a satin finish, and need to be topped with a glossy top coat to bring out the beauty of the polish. Sugar High is a high shine scented top coat give all takkitos that glossy finish!

Twinsie Tuesday: Blobicure

Hey y'all! Today's post is gonna be a quick one. I am still knee deep in getting part 2 of the new Takko Lacquer colors ready for tomorrow, but I had to make sure that my portion of this week's Twinsie Tuesday post was up! The theme for today is Blobicure! I recently did a 'blobicure" for another TT post and I really liked the results, but wanted another go at it.

Takko Lacquer Summer 2015 Collection Part 1

Hey guys and gals! So if you have come to my blog looking for the new Takko Lacquer summer release, you are in for a treat! Today I have part 1 of 2 posts for the new summer colors to be released June 18th at 8pm EST.

The entire collection is flat out gorgeous, as always. It has a variety of different finished, neon, jelly, flakie, shimmer, holo and glitter, so there is something for everyone. And now all Takko Lacquer polishes are infused with Vitamin E (on top of being 5-free and vegan) to help promote strong, healthy nails. The only noticeable change is that the polishes are slightly thicker and dry to a satin finish. They all still apply fantastic and now have the added bonus of actually making your nails better from the inside too! How cool is that? I don't think I have ever heard or seen a polish that does that. 

One more thing before we get to the swatches. Along with the seven new polishes in the summer release, Takko Lacquer is introducing a new high shine scented top coat called Sugar High. I will post a full review along with the other three polishes on Wednesday but  I used the new top coat for all the swatches in both posts. 

And now, sit back and enjoy all the drool-worthy goodies I have for you all today!

Friday Favorites: Red

Hi friends! As promised, today's post is the first part of a new weekly series sharing my favorites from my stash! I decided to go by color, finish and then by brand. So hopefully I will get to use some neglected polish over the next several weeks, and you guys might find a new color or three to try!

Since we're starting with color, the first Favorites post is my fav red polishes! If you have read my blog for a while, you probably know that red isn't a shade I naturally gravitate towards. Over the last few years of polish collecting, I have come across a few reds that I do actually like. Although only one of them is a cream finish, lol! I do like my polish to have a little something extra!

Matte White & Gold Triangles NOTD

Hey y'all! How is your summer going? We have already had a few summer-time adventures in the two short weeks the kiddo has been out of school. I'm hoping to do some swimming in Barton Creek pool soon. It is one of my favorite things to do!

Today's NOTD is totally summer appropriate and would be a killer pool-side mani. White nails are some what of a classic summer look, but I kinda feel like it's a little too bland for my taste. So I decided to jazz up the white nail with something a little shiny and shimmery. Cause that's how I roll.

Twinsie Tuesday: Oldest Untried

Hi friends! This week's Twinsie theme is our "oldest untried" and well, I usually don't have a big pile of untrieds laying around! I tend to immediately use a polish, either on a swatch wheel or wear it as soon as I get it, lol! I am definitely one for instant gratification. But I did manage to find one that I have yet to wear that is actually pretty old. 

I am a huge Pahlish fan, if you haven't figured that out yet, so having a Pahlish polish that I haven't actually worn is really strange. Jardim Botanico came out last summer and all I ever did was swatch it on a swatch stick for my collection catalog. So this may actually be a first!

Rescue Beauty Lounge Pretty Gritty (Refinery 29 Collaberation)

Hey y'all! So it has been far too long since I have posted about RBL. I honestly just haven't had it in my budget to spend that kind of money on polish, but when Ji has a sale, then I do tend to take advantage! That's what I did last time around. A few months ago, there as a 40% off sale on a lot of the RBL catalog and I snagged one of the newer shades on my wishlist!

Mint Green and Gold Saran Wrap Skittlette NOTD

Hi friends! So I meant to post this last week, I even had all the pictures edited! But I didn't and then I forgot about until Monday when I was figuring out my post schedule for the week, I realized that it never happened. Oops! Anyway, I have been in a serious skittlette mood as of late and I was craving something that would be perfect for summer! I went with one of my favorite color combos, mint green and gold, added a little bling and a nice textural element and viola!

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired By A Song

Hey guys and gals! What a whirlwind the last several days have been! Last day of school, water day, first sleep over for my small person, movie day, but now we are officially on summer break and I am so excited to have no schedule for a while! I am even more excited to bust out my summery bright polish/make up! I live for the bright colors of summer. 

But today's post is a Twinsie theme!  We are doing nails "inspired by a song." Since I have literally had no time to actually sit down and paint my nails (I wore Essie Flowerista for about four days straight and if you know me, you know that is a long time), I pulled out the only polish in my collection named after a song - Takko Laquer Kiss The Sky!
