Press Release: China Glaze Rebel Fall 2016

Another press release of you!  I'm really excited for the China Glaze Fall collection!  The shades in Rebel look pretty awesome!  

*press release*

It’s time to announce China Glaze’s Fall 2016 collection, Rebel, a pretty yet gritty collection of 12 new shades.

Inspired by the 1990s but with a modern twist, the feminine pinks and pearls paired with deep purples, blues and grays capture the spirit of the decade that brought us grunge, baby doll dresses paired with Doc Martens, Kate Moss, and the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”.  China Glaze puts a unique twist on the trend by utilizing some of the newest finishes in nail polish including a gorgeous matte satin in Combat Blue-ts (my personal fave) and slight color transitioning pearlescent in the aptly named Pearl Jammin’.

ChinaGlaze Rebel will be available starting August 1st with select shades at Ulta and Sally Beauty Supply stores, and the complete collection will be available online at, MSRP $7.50.

Chaos & Crocodiles An Alpaca With A Plan

Afternoon all!  I'm working on some big posts right now when I get breaks in mom-life but I wanted to pop in for a quickie!  I pre-ordered from Chaos & Crocodiles a while back because I just couldn't resist this warm cashmere colored holo.  When it arrived I was definitely happy I bought it!  Perfect trans-seasonal shade, great as a nail art base, nice shade for work and perfect palette cleanser!  I just checked out the webpage and there is only a few merchandise items up for sale at the moment but you should make sure to follow C&C on Facebook and Instagram so you can be in the know when she restocks the shop with her lovely polishes!  Let's jump on in and check out this pretty little ditty!

Good afternoon beauties.  Summer is in full swing and I am enjoying the sunshine and the heat.  My kids are out of camp and have started swim lessons so I get to spend my days poolside, watching them have fun in the water.  I'm at the point in the Summer where I only want to wear bright, fun colors on my nails.  Yeah, I am totally one of those people that abides to seasonal shades.  It's a good thing too because Dreamland Lacquer has a gorgeous new collection that will make all you fans of bright colors do a happy dance!  #Autocorrect is an awesome set of polish inspired by that silly autocorrect feature that drives us all crazy.  Turning our messages into incomprehensive sentences that leave people scratching their heads trying to figure out what you wanted to say.  But some of them are quite funny too!  This 5-piece set consists of neon shades, jelly bases and glowy holo flakes.  Gorgeous!  The #Autocorrect collection will be available for pre-order from 7/20 at 2pm Central to 7/23 at 2pm Central.  So let's jump in and see some polish!

Glisten & Glow All Dressed Up Duo

Good evening dears!  Popping in with a quick (and late - sorry) post to share with you before these polishes launch tomorrow so hang in there and don't go to bed just yet.  Glisten & Glow is releasing 2 collections tomorrow, Experience the Islands - you can see my post HERE and the All Dressed Up Duo.  All Dressed Up consists of basic black and white cremes with fantastic formulas.  I even tried some nail art with them, and failed because I am not that great with art, but I will try again to show you how easy they both are to use with stamping and vinyls.  The All Dressed Up Duo will be available on 7/15 at 9am Eastern.  Now let's check them out.

Glisten & Glow Experience the Islands

Good evening dolls!  I have a post full of gorgeous cremes to share with you tonight!  I feel like cremes are getting their 15 minutes of fame at the moment and I have to tell yo a little secret...I love it!  I was never really a huge creme fan but lately they have really impressed me.  Probably because they are from fantastic indie makers and indies do it best!  Glisten & Glow created this 4-piece set of creme polish called Experience the Islands.  Ok first off YES PLEASE, i want to experience the islands.  I love tropical vacations and would be happy living on an island for the rest of my life.  Second, these colors and the creamy finish are perfection.  Experience the Islands will be available on 7/15 at 9am Eastern.  Make sure you mark your calendar and jump on the creme cruise!

Good evening beauties!  I've got a cute little post for you tonight.  Sorry it's a little late, but I've had quite a lot of time to catch up on house cleaning and housewifey chores while the kids have been in camp.  Man it's nice to have a clean house.  But I've also had some time to catch up on swatching and playing with nail polish.  I've got a ton of posts to work on still, hopefully I can get all those up before I leave for Las Vegas/CosmoProf 2016 next weekend!  Eeeeeee, so excited to be going again! But I digress.  I have a super cute nail accessory to share tonight.  It's a tassel.  Just once cute little tassel.  You can pick up a 3-pack of tassels from the Born Pretty Store HERE for $2.24, there is a variety of colors to chose from.  Don't forget you can save 10% using my code JTOW10.  So let's delve in and see what I did with this cute little thing.

July 2016 Destination Duo, Lolo Pass Montana; Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer & 6 Harts

Good evening dears!  I have a fantastic duo to share with you tonight.  You are probably aware that Julie from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer has a monthly Destination Duo box, a polish duo created with another indie maker where they both use a scenic/vacation picture for inspiration.  This month the guest maker is the lovely Courtney from 6 Harts and the inspiration is a picture she took of Lolo Pass in Montana.  With just that little snap shot of the woods I can only imagine how beautiful and scenic Montana is.  I am always in awe when I see wooded parts of the country and stunning mountain ranges.  Where I am from it's mostly just golden (read dried out tall grass and weeds) hills.  But it's pretty in it's own way too.  So the details you want to know about.  The July Destination Duo will be available on 7/7 at 3:30pm Eastern.  The box will be $30 shipped within the USA, $20 + shipping international.  There are 30 boxes total split between the 2 shops so you can head over to either once the time hits and start shopping!  Now let's jump in and check out this box!

Here is the inspiration picture of Lolo Pass, Montana. 

And here's a bottle shot of the polishes!  You will also get that fun little baggie of glitter as an extra.  You can fancy up wither polish by adding the glitter to the top.  It's not recommended to put the glitter into either polish though.

Cupcake Polish: The Olympic Collection, Summer 2016

Good afternoon dears!  I have quite a bit lined up for July so I'm doubling up on posting today.  I'm sure you don't mind, because really, who doesn't like looking at nail polish all the time?  I know I do. Seriously.  I'm always looking.  Anyways, aside from always swooning and being excited for polish I am also pretty damn excited for THE OLYMPICS!!!!!  I will literally disappear and watch hours upon hours of the Olympics.  I get totally sucked in.  I especially love track and field, swimming, water polo and gymnastics.  But I'm sure you know my heart belongs to soccer.  Cupcake Polish wanted to commemorate the 2016 Summer games in Rio by creating a collection of holos and they are awesome!  I love that these holos are gorgeous, bright colors but I also love that they are the colors of the Olympic rings.  The 6-piece holo Olympic Collection will be available on 7/10 at 12pm Central.  Set your alarms so you remember to snatch these vibrant beauties up!  Now let's jump into the swatches.
