Alter Ego October Polish Pickup Exclusive: My Own Worst Enemy

Good morning and happy Sunday! I wish the weekends were longer, not that I get any more time to relax than I do during the week! It's been soccer, soccer, soccer, packing and cleaning all weekend.  Phew, I am tired!  But I must plug along today with both soccer games and the ol' blog.  Next Friday the PPU opens up!  The theme is great for October, Villains!  I love all the takes on the theme that I've seen so far.  Alter Ego went with a really awesome villain, Tyler Durden from Fight Club and came up with one of the most gorgeous pink polishes I have laid my eyes on; My Own Worst Enemy. You can buy this at the Polish Pick Up from 10/5 - 10/8 for $8, no cap. Let's head in to the post and check it out!

6 Harts Polish October Polish Pickup Exclusive: Life From Destruction, Disorder, Chaos

Afternoon loves!  How's your day going?  Mine started early with the first game in a soccer tournament.  But it was perfect weather, I got to chat with other moms, cheer on my middle kid and to top it off they won.  Next game is going to be tough though!  Until then, I am going to line up a few posts to share with you over the weekend because you know what happens next weekend?  That's right, Polish Pickup time!  October's theme is Villains, and as usual the makers are all over the place! I love seeing every one's take on these themes and the last 2 months have been right up my alley.  I am especially excited for the ones I have to share with you.  So let's start it off with 6 Harts polish, Life From Destruction, Disorder, Chaos. This was inspired by the villain in The Fifth Element, Zorg.  Such a good movie, Leeloo is so kick-ass!  And Zorg is a fabulous villain.   You'll be able to pick the up Life From Destruction, Disorder, Chaos from 10/5 - 10/8 for $10.  There will be a 75 bottle cap.

Stella Chroma; Fall Mattes Collection

The Fall Mattes Collection consists of 6 gorgeous Autumn inspired shades that are a fantastic matte finish.  I truly love matte finish polish and wish makers did them more often, but I guess that's what makes them so much more special to me!  You'll be able to purchase the Fall Mattes starting on 9/22 at 12pm EDT.  They will be $12 each or you can purchase the set for $64 until 10/5.  A portion of the sales will be donated to the Girls Who Code program.  And don't forget you can save 15% using my code MNPO!  Let's go ahead and jump in to the post to check them out and revel in all their Fall Matte glory!

Lollipop Posse Lacquer: September Year of Tarot - Death & September Single Pour LE - Fallen Woman in Dancing Costume

Guess what, I am not at a soccer game or soccer practice.  I'm at a volleyball game, HA!  I'm back with a couple Lollipops that I didn't share with my last post because I felt they deserved their own!  First off we have the newest addition to the Year of Tarot, Death.  Then there's the September Single Pour LE, Fallen Woman in Dancing Costume.  My understanding is that these will both be limited in supply, due to bottle issues.  so they may go into a pre-order if they sell out right away.  And of course the Single Pour is just that and when it's gone it's gone.  Both will be available this Friday 9/21 at 8pm EDT.  They will be $12 and $10. So you ready to jump in and check them out?  Let's do it!

Girly Bits Cosmetics; Crelly Crate Exclusive - Dying To Get Here

Evening!  You know where I am, my usual spot.  Sitting out at the soccer field watching one of my kids practice!  Fun times.  But as always it gives me the perfect opportunity to do a little blogging.  Tonight I am excited to share a gorgeous polish that is part of the Crellycrate!  I don't know about you but I am total sucker for crellies, especially when they are packed full of shimmer and flakies and all those good things.  The #crellycrate was born from the Crazy 4 Crellies Facebook group, for those of us who can't get enough crellies.  It contains 3 lovely polishes from Girly Bits, Beautiful Unlimited and Top Shelf Lacquer.  The inspiration is Tim Burton and this particular trio is based on Corpse Bride.  Actually there are 2 other movies/trios (Beetlejuice and Nightmare Before Christmas).  Make sure to follow #crellycrate on Instagram to see them all and join the Crazy 4 Crellies group!  I have Girly Bits Dying to Get Here, from the Corpse Bride trio.  You'll be able to pick it up at the Polish M site for $12 or $33 for the trio.  Sale will run from 9/14 - 9/21.  I'm dying to show it to you so let's get in the post!

Alter Ego September Indie Pickup Exclusive: Saturdays Are for Sven Chicken Ramen Soap

Morning friends!  I am cracking up as I type this post because the product is so ridiculously funny!  I think it also shows how awesome Cynthia, the maker behind Alter Ego is, because she knows not to take things too seriously sometimes.  Now that the PPU has closed we are rolling in to the IPU soon, which is all the non-polish products that makers sell.  It's actually kind of a boutique flea market of sorts with every sort of handmade item you can think of; soap, jewelry, squishies, slime, wax melts, makeup, etc, etc... Again, inspired by the horror movie host on late night TV, Svengoolie, Alter Ego took one of his props and turned it into a soap!  A rubber chicken soap.  That smells like chicken ramen.  Do I need to say anymore?!  You need this in your life, whether it be serious or as a joke, or as the perfect white elephant gift!  You can purchase the rubber chicken soap from 9/21 - 9/24 for $6. There will be a cap, only roughly 30-40 soaps to be had!  Let's check it out!
-no chicken broth or byproducts used to make this soap-

Stella Chroma Hella Handmade Creations, September 2018 - Queens of Westeros, Queen Selyse

Evening all!  I'm enjoying a fairly quiet tie out at the soccer fields while the boys both practice.  Actually I have no idea where my older son is because his ended 30 minutes ago but I assume he is helping another team out.  And my daughter is off on the playground making friends with other little siblings that are toted around to all these practices.  Other than that lots of sports, school AND polish stuff going on this week!  IPU opens up, HHC opens up, so many launches I can't keep up!  But I can fill you in on the Stella Chroma polish that will be available during the HHC this week.  As you know by now, Stella Chroma picked Game of Thrones as her fandom theme.  She's run the gamut showcasing all the Queens in the series and we are now at Queen Selyse.  This beautiful, wintery polish will be available from 9/14-9/21 for $12.  Let's jump in to the post and see the polish!

Afternoon friends!  Hope your Wednesday was fantastic.  Mine seemed long and I was exhausted.  Apparently it was long and tiring for my 12 year old also because I just got a phone call that he fell asleep on a bench at school and it took 6 teachers to wake him up.  He was knocked the heck out! Hoping we all feel more energetic tomorrow.  Ok ok, so I'm back today with another fabulous polish available during the September Polish Pickup.  This one is from ellagee and it's called Something Has Found Us.  It was inspired by the horror movie Cloverfield.  You'll be able to pick it up from 9/7 - 9/10 for $12, no cap.  So let's go see it!
