Alter Ego: February Polish of the Month, Beating Heart

Hey hey hey!  Happy Thursday.  How's the weather in your neck of the woods?  It had been pretty rainy for us but the last few days have been cold and clear.  I've been holed up at home this week because I had my bottom wisdom teeth removed and I'm a sad panda eating my mushy foods while everyone else gets to eat yummy try tip and flautas and the good stuff.  Thankfully the kids have no school this week so I really did get to sit at home and wallow in my misery, taking them no where.  I've been avoiding my blogging duties and have a bit of a back up so I'll have quite a bit to share with you now.  Let's start with Alter Ego's Facebook Fan Group custom for February, Beating Heart.  This neon beauty will be available for the rest of this month so I suggest you hustle up and get to buying if you like it!  Beating Heart is currently on sale for $7 for the full sized (17ml) bottle.  Let's check it out.

Evening y'all! You haven't sen me in a while.  I haven't been swatching too much yet this month, I've been pretty busy with the new baby and getting back in shape.  I'm having fun with my new YMCA membership and I've made it my personal goal to try out as many classes as possible!  Today I tried the Stand Up Aqua class and it was really fun!  I fell off my paddle board 3 times, not too bad.  But I've been getting nail mail and need to spend some time swatching.  I do have the new Year Of Tarot shades from Lollipop to share with you tonight, yay me!  First off, the new Year of Tarot shades will be available on 2/9 at 8pm EST.  Second, they are all BEAUTIFUL!  Serious you guys!  Karen's use of aurora shimmer and flakes is amazing.  The 3 new Tarots will be $12 each.  Let's jump in to the post so you can see what I mean instead of just taking my word for it.

KBShimmer; The Road To Polish Con New Orleans 2019 exclusive; Beignet Done That

Happy Fri-Yay y'all!  Hope you have a great day planned and an even better weekend.  I'm going to be racing tomorrow!  My first real race since I've had the baby.  I don't expect anything other than to try to run as much as I can of the 5K.  It's a mellow hilly, trail-ish course so pushing the stroller on it should be interesting.  Other than that, just hanging at home and enjoying the chill weekend while I can (until Spring soccer starts up and my calendar is full of soccer games).  So unless you are living under a rock you know that Polish Con is coming up in April.  You also know that it's in New Orleans.  I am seriously trying to figure out if I can go, even if it's just me and the baby alone!  I just want to go to NOLA, any excuse works for me!  So right now I am super jelly of all of you that already have a ticket.  Leading up to Polish Con there is this cool thing called Road to Polish Con and all the makers attending will have a special posh available for all of us sad souls that can't go to the actual event.  How cool is that?!  KBShimmer has a fabulous polish that just screams Mardi Gras to me, called Beignet Done That.  It will be available until 2/3, $10, no cap.

Zoya: Jubilee Collection, Holiday 2018

Hello, happy Saturday!  This post is long overdue as it is the Zoya Holiday collection.  Holiday time for me is usually really hectic and on top of that my family grew.  I also took a look at this collection and it didn't really scream holiday to me anyways so I decided that sharing it any time during the Winter would suffice.  And Zoya is currently having a "get 4 FREE" deal and all you need to do is pay the shipping.  Use code Hue19 and see more info for the deal HERE.  So really, I helped save you money if you wanted any of these and waited until now to buy.  You're welcome. Now let's jump on in to the post and check out the lovely 12-piece collection that is Jubilee!  Oh, these up for $10 each or pre-selected 6 piece sets for $60 without the deal.

Good evening!  How was your weekend?  Mine was pretty nice, no rushing around, no real "things" going on.  I went for a long walk with my mom and then to brunch for her birthday.  It was nice.  Now I'm chillaxing at home.  So I figured I'd get a post going on while I'm all relaxed and zen - sending you those vibes while you read.

Zoya: Winter Holos

This is gearing up to be a late night post!  Finally got myself all cleaned up and ready for bed.  I tried out my new microdermabrasion tool and think I rubbed too hard in one spot because it's a little achey and stings when I touch it, like I literally rubbed the skin right off.  Ooops!  First time using it, but now I'll know better.  Seems like a great way to slough off dead skin in the cold winter months and I feel like it works because the rest of my face feels nice and smooth.  Anther way to stay fresh looking in the Winter is to wear bright nail polish colors!  Zoya recently came out with their Winter Holo trio and it's 3 lovely scattered holos in fun, non-wintry colors.  You can purchase the Winter Holos now, individually for $10 or as a set for $30.  Pssst, Zoya is also running a promo!  New Year, New Hue.  4 colors for free, you only pay shipping ($15).  Use the code Hue19.  Maybe you can get these 3 beauties!

Sally Hansen X Crayola Insta-Dri: Glam Rock Collection

Good afternoon!  How's your Thursday?  I have a sick kiddo at home again today.  So I really did a lot of nothing.  I've kept the 3 of us feed and warm, I got the other 2 off to school on time, so I guess I'll call today a win!  I am really hoping to get out for a walk or run this evening so fingers crossed today isn't an entire wash.  I did make strides with swatching polish yesterday so that was great too!  Today I have a really fun collection to share with you.  I'm sure you remember the adorable Salt Hansen X Crayola collection that came out last Spring...a set of pretty cremes inspired by crayon colors.  Well the duo put their heads together again and came out with the Glam Rock Collection!  This collection is packed full of 12 metallic shades in the Insta-Dry finish.  I am 100% on board with this collection from the packaging to the presentation to the colors to the polishes!  Win win win.  You should be able to find these shades at your local drug store.  They should be about $5 each.  I am not sure about the packaging - if it's available or if it was just for promotional use.  But now I have to admit I am smitten with the Crayola shades and am hunting Amazon and Ebay for the older ones.  Ok ok, but I should finish the post first!  Let's jump in!

January 2019 Polish Pickup & Indie Pickup, Mythology

Hello!  Happy New Year!  2019, I have big personal plans for you...getting my pre-baby body back, getting back to the fitness level I was at, back to the gym, better eating habits, decluttering my life, and basically just finding a family/self balance.  So what type of resolution(s) do you have for yourself?  

Since it's January, it means the new PPU an IPU is here! Both will be open from 1/4 - 1/7 and have loads of great stuff.  The theme for the month is Mythology.  I've always loved Mythology and it was one of my favorite topics in History classes.  But this month I am doing things differently, instead of individual posts for each polish or item I have to review I am going to put them all in 1 giant post.  I feel it will be easier for you to find and keep track of items you want to earmark for later.  Let me know in the comments if you prefer 1 big post or several individual posts.  

This is a pretty big post, lots of pictures...so grab your coffee and let's jump in!
