Alter Ego: Fan Favorites Collection, Spring 2018

Evening friends!  I have a nice, big post for you tonight, featuring the new Alter Ego Fan Favorites collection.  Well it's not huge, but it's a nice rounded out 6 piece set.  The Fan Favorites collection is available now and you can either pick up the set for $51 or individually for $9.50.  There is also a mini bottle option available for individual and sets, with a smaller price tag.  The Fan Favorites has a nice array of colors and finishes, definitely something for everyone.  But enough of the chit chat...let's jump right in and see the polishes.

Stella Chroma Hella Handmade Creations, May 2018 - Queen of Thorns

Evening all!  Wanted to jump on the blog tonight to share a beautiful polish with you!  You may have noticed that the Hella Holo Customs group made a change last month, they are now the Hella Handmade Customs group.  I can only guess that means the polishes don't have to be holographic and it's opened up the products to other handmade goods.  They also changed the way they do sales, not 2 sellers a month, but multiple sellers that pick a theme and create polishes to release individually over multiple months.  Stella Chroma went with Game of Thrones as her inspiration, specifically the strong women from GoT.  The first one is Queen of Thorns, inspired by Lady Olenna.  You'll be able to purchase this polish from 5/14 - 5/21 and it will be first of 6 polishes paying tribute to the Queens of Westeros.  Queen of Thorns will be $12.

Ethereal Lacquer: Oasis Collection

Morning dears!  Happy Friday to you!  Dropping another slightly large post for you today, hope you don't mind.  Since I know you are all members of Facebook polish land and Instagram you were probably aware that Ethereal Lacquer has returned after a fairly long hiatus.  I was fortunate enough to swatch her return collection called Oasis.  Most are still currently available and if you join the Facebook fan group you will get sneak peeks of the pretty shades she has lined up for future releases. All the shades I have in this post are $12, I will mention which are available and which are sold out at the moment.

Born Pretty: Gemstone Stamping Plate

Today was a nice day.  The weather was perfect.  I visited with my grandpa.  My kids were all good.  Thank you Tuesday for not being awful.  I'm back to the old blog and chain tonight with a quickie post featuring a super fun plate from Born Pretty.  Took me a little while to really get decent at stamping and I feel that I am no longer a novice at it.  Maybe I'll start trying to double stamp and reverse stamp.  I think I can do it!  Anyways, this is a great little gemstone plate, lots of loose stones and jewelry and all kinds of fun.  I can't seem to locate this particular stamping plate but there are so many fun ones in the shop right now!  You can save 10% using my code JTOW10.  Alright, let's check it out.

Born Pretty: Silver Holographic Nail Polish

Evening dears!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Mind didn't entail too much excitement.  A break from soccer games, but that meant an upswing in house cleaning.  Thankfully the whole family was involved so it went pretty fast.  I did get lots of swatching done so I'll be bombarding you with posts in the coming weeks (YAY!).  Let's start with a Born Pretty post!  I haven't tried too many polishes from Born Pretty, actually I think this one is my first!  I picked out a fabulous silver holo and I was taken back to the heyday of the ultra linear holos!  Loved it!  There are several shades of the holo polish available and they are great for stamping too!  You can pick up silver or any of the other Born Pretty colors of the Holographic Stamping Polish now for $5.59 HERE.  You can save 10% using my code JTOW10. Let's jump in and check it out.

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer May Polish Pick Up Exclusive: The Ancient Power

Good afternoon!  Hope your Thursday is going well.  I just got home with all my kiddos and pretty soon will be off to my taxi mom life.  But with the Polish Pickup starting tomorrow I want to show you one last polish I have.  It's a stunner from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer and it was inspired by one of my all time favorite shows, Charmed.  Personally, I liked the show better when Shannen Doherty was on it but oh well, guess she's hard to work with.  Anyways, if you were out of the loop, the May PPU theme is all about the 90's!  You'll be able to purchase BEGL The Ancient Power from 5/4 - 5/7 for $12, no cap.  Are you ready?  The power of three will set us free.....

ellagee Regina Phalange

Morning y'all.  Today I am tired.  Legit exhausted.  I think I went to bed too late but it couldn't be avoided.  I'm paying the price for it now.  Thankfully I can be a lump on a log until it's time to pick up the kids from school.  So while I sit here on the couch watching movie after movie or take a nap I wanted to get a lovely polish in front of you!  Laura initially created this polish for the Polish Pickup, but recently had to pull out of the May theme.  Fortunately for us, this beauty inspired by Friends called Regina Phalange, will be available in the ellagee shop in the future.  The date is TBA so keep your eyes peeled on the ellagee fan page for details.  Regina Phalange will be $11.  Let's jump in and check it out.

Alter Ego May Polish Pick Up Exclusive: Macarena! AAAY!

Buenos dias! Today I have another a fun polish that will be featured in the Polish Pickup.  As I've mentioned in my previous May PPU posts, the theme is the 90's and people really spanned all the aspects of the 90's, I can totally relate to 99% of them.  But this polish was inspired by a song that is a classic at all parties that have a dance floor.  I think it's sure to give you an ear worm!  Alter Ego took direct inspiration from the video for Macarena.  You know the song, you know the dance.  Macarena! AAAY! will be available from 5/4 - 5/7 and will be $8.  No cap.  Let's jump in, come and dance beside me...
