Road to Polish Con Week 7; Alter Ego Does the Ducky Derby

Good morning friends!  Summer is winding down and I has a sad.  I'm sad to not be able to head off to do fun things during the day with my kids, to get back to the grind of homework and busy after school schedules.  But I'm also looking forward to having a routine and getting into the holiday season.  It also means there's another Polish Con in the near future!  This one will be held in Chicago on 9/23 if you hadn't heard about it yet (not sure if tickets are sold out or not so you'll have to check that out).  Right now they are going through the Road To Polish Con series, polishes by makers that will be at the event, that will be available online for those who can't make it to the event.   Pretty cool way to make everyone feel included.  They're currently on week 7 and the polishes are only available for 1 week so you have until 8/19 to get this one.  The polish I'm sharing with you today is created by Alter Ego and is called Does the Ducky Derby and you can purchase it for $10.  It's pretty fabulous and unique so let's jump in to the spot and check it out.  Oh I should also mention that Cynthia is including a little cardboard paper with one of her available scents on it in her packages.  I received a coffee scent and found it amazing!  But for those with sensitive noses, you may want to open the package in a well ventilated area or let it air out a bit before opening.  Ok...let's go!

Born Pretty Store Shining Diamond Stamping Plate

Good evening beauties!  I have a few posts that I've been sitting on for a while so I need to get them shared.  Today has been an email sending, Internet browsing, bill paying, but parked on the couch, mindless tv on all day kind of day.  I literally need 1 day a week like this because I'm always so tired from soccer, running, taking the kids places, taxi-moming, cleaning.  While I wait for the husband to get home so we can have dinner I decided to continue the couch potato productivity.  I've got some pretty diamond stamping to share with you!  This is the shining diamond design image plate, which for some reason I can't find on the site.  But I do see another plate with similar images.  Anywho, you can pick up the other diamond plate HERE for $1.59.  Let's check out the pictures!

Different Dimension Wild Spirit Trio; Transition Collection

Good evening beauties!  I meant to post this earlier in the evening but we spent time hanging out in the backyard, enjoying time laughing with the kids and talking.  Then we moved to the front yard to admire our new landscaping.  As you can guess, time got away from me.  So this here's a post for you night owls.  Hopefully on the West Coast because it's super late over on the East Coast now.  So this is the new collection from Different Dimension.  It's a transitional collection, meant to help ease us into Fall.  I don't know what the rest of the country is like, but Fall here in California is hot.  I'm still in t-shirts and flip flops until Halloween!  The Wild Spirit Trio are perfect colors for this time of year...end of Summer, not really wanting to wear neons, but not cool enough for dark and vampy shades yet either.  The Wild Spirit Trio will be available on 8/12 at 9am EST.  The polishes will be $12 each.  Alrighty then, let's jump in and check them out!

Good afternoon all!  Hope your week is going well.  My summer is full of pool days, swimming, water slides, beach days, fairs, and yet I still have all my taxi mom duties and play dates on my calendar.  I've been busy if you can 't tell!  But busy keeps me happy and sane, plus at least I'm not in the house cleaning.  Today I'm happy to share my post with you because I always have rave reviews for the snacks I receive from the Fit Snack box.   The July box is no different except for the fact that it was absolutely JAM-PACKED with delicious snacks!  I had fun with this box and got 2 of my kids to taste test things with me, Noah, my totally non-picky 11 year old and Naomi, my slightly picky, overly dramatic 5 year old.  I'll be sharing their thoughts too.  Don't forget you can save $3 off your subscription purchase with my link HERE.  Ok, let's jump in and see the contents of this box.

ellagee, Sophia, Queen of the Side Eye; August 2017 Polish Pick Up

Morning dears!  The kids and I spent 6 hours out in the sun yesterday, playing in the water, going down slides, riding on tubes.  We still went to bed late, slept in, and are slowly getting our acts together for the day.  The plan is to head out to the Boardwalk but I've only got 2/3 kids on board.  I have to take that with a grain of salt because that 1 kid is my black sheep.  No matter what I say, he's the one who goes against it.  Every.  Single.  Time.  Lord help me, he's exasperating.  So exasperating I've also become a Queen of the Side Eye.  Haha!  Well that leads me into the polish named as such, inspired by the stunning Sophia Loren, who truly was the Queen of the Side Eye.  This polish is available through the August Polish Pick Up selections, from 8/4-8/7.  If you haven't figured it out yet, or somehow missed it, the theme is Old Hollywood!  Ok, ready to check this beaut out?  Let go then!

Nail Hoot/Top Shelf Lacquer Duo; Hoot This Way & Drunk and Disorderly

Evening dolls!  I've tried to stay inside as much as possible this hot weekend.  Every time I went outside I felt like I was going to spontaneously combust.  But on the plus side my tan is off the hook! I just got home from soccer, my family wants to go out to Red Lobster because of the all you can eat crab...it's for a limited time you know.  Ha!  My 11 year old has been telling us about it all day.  So before we do that I figured I'd drop this fabulous new duo of you to oogle over.  I've tried polishes form both brands in the past and am always impressed...this duo really shows off how great both brands are!  The back story to the duo is a joke.  Brandie had a naming contest in her group and Amy suggested Hoot This Way.  Amy submitted that name for every contest Brandie had for a polish name.  Brandie FINALLY gave in and told Amy if she'd let her name a polish Drunk and Disorderly, she'd name a polish Hoot This Way.  And there we have the creation of this beautiful duo!  The duo is already available on the Nail Hoot website and the price is $18 plus shipping.  So let's jump in to the post and then you can mosey on over to shop!

Morning beauties!  I have makeup to share today, yay!  I know you are all on the quest for the perfect lippie, just like I always am.  I've found some gems along the way and some that aren't so great.  I am thrilled to share Highlight Cosmetics with you today.  It's a makeup brand, specializing in liquid lipsticks made from natural ingredients such as turmeric, green tea and sea kelp (just to name a few).   Highlight Cosmetics is made in the USA, and is gluten, parade and cruelty free.  How cool is all that?  And these gorgeous lipsticks really pay off in color and wear time.  There are 10 shades to choose from, both plain matte and metallic matte.  They are $25 each.  Okie dokie, shall we jump in to the post?  Let's go!

Stella Chroma Premiere Collection

Good morning lovelies!  I feel like it's been a while!  I had quite a bit going on, preparing for the last day of school, Promotion, a short vacation, a half marathon, packing my oldest for an international soccer camp...So much to do, so little time.  So I'm once again playing catch-up.  Let's start with some exciting news.  You've probably heard that Paint Box Polish is no more, but it's not gone.  Stella Chroma will be launching on 6/29 and it's an absolutely gorgeous transformation.  The branding and bottles are so classy, with a boutique feel.  I'm excited to be sharing the Premiere Collection with you now!  
A big change happening is that Stella Chroma will be a charity brand!  Pam is a Nurse Practitioner and has nieces that are very interested in science.  Stella Chroma will be promoting STEM careers by partnering with different organizations each quarter.  The initial quarter will be donating a portion of sales to IGNITE (Inspiring Girls Now In Technology) which is a non-profit that introduces girls in grades 6-12 to technology and engineering careers.  Check out their website for more info!  
BUT WAIT there's more!  There's also a giveaway for an uber gorgeous Coach holo wristlet!  Making a purchase in the first week will qualify as an entry.  You can get more entires by sending friends to Stella Chroma to shop and having them enter your name in the notes!  *Wristlet will be mailed to the winner*  Ok, now that all those details have been divulged let's jump in and look at polish!

Born Pretty Store Magnet Pen

Happy Fri-YAY!  Do you have plans for the weekend?  I have none.  NONE!  No soccer tournaments, no baseball games, no parties, nothing.  I can sit at home in my pjs all weekend long should I chose to.  But I don't.  I like to go out and will likely hit up the beach or the pool.  I also like this post a lot because it made me bust out one of my old magnetic polishes to play with it again!  Remember how those were all the rage in like 2013?  Well let's bring them back!  I had a good time trying to remember the little tricks to get the magnet and polish to work together.  This Magnet Pen was so much easier to use than the magnets that were available to us a few years back.  You can purchase this product HERE for $2.09 or you can click the link below and browse other magnetic polish items in the Born Pretty shop.  Save 10% off your entire order using my code JTOW10.

ellagee I'm Peach

Evening all!  Hanging out with my fan watching the Warriors (I am by no means a basketball fan so I'm not really paying attention) and taking a break from cleaning my house.  I am pretty beat actually, the cleaning and few errands I did today really wiped me out.  I am fighting a cold so I'm super blah.  But this polish is the absolute opposite of super blah.  It's pretty fan-flipping-tactic actually.  And it has me in the mood for the heat...BRING IT ON SUMMER!  Alrighty, so I'm Peach is available now for $12, $8 of which will be donated to the ACLU in your name! Let's jump in and check it out.

Evening y'all!  I meant to share this post a few hours ago but hello, mom of boys.  I ended up in the ER instead of getting to type.  But the good news is no broken bones and I can share the post now!  Ok, now that that's behind us, let's check out the KBShimmer custom for the Holo-Maniacs group!  This is Holo Can You Go, it's custom #25 for the group.  You can purchase this straight from KBShimmer but the link is only shared in the Holo-Maniacs Facebook group.  I'd highly suggest you go join if you are a fan of all things holo.  Holo Can You Go is $9.25.  I know there are 90 bottles available right away and once those are gone the sale becomes a pre-order.  I'm not sure where they're at currently but you'll get your pretties no matter what.  Ok, so let's jump in and check out the polish!
