Good afternoon dears!  I've got some new Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer to share with you today!  This is Side A of the Dad's Mixtape collection.  Inspired by classic rock songs that Julie grew up listening to with her dad.  Pssst, there will be a Side B coming in December.  Side A of Dad's Mixtape Collection will be available as a pre-order today (9/28) at 3:30pm EDT.  The pre-order ends on 10/1 at 11:59pm EDT.  The fill size bottles will be $8.50 - $12 each, the minis will be $5 - $6.  You can get the entire set also; full size is $37.50, mini size is $21, not including shipping.  I did some speculating as to which songs inspired the shades so enjoy the links to the songs, whether I was right tor wrong...they're still some good classic rock jams.  So let's not waste any more time and jump in to see the swatches!

Dreamland Lacquer Outlander Collection

Good morning dears.  Hope your Saturday night was eventful!  Mine definitely was.  I spent the evening with8 of my daughter's friends, making stuffed animals at Build A Bear for Naomi's 5th birthday.  Not as exciting as being at Polish Con but it was still fun times!  Now I'm just waiting for soccer to start.  But until then I am keeping true to my word and getting another post to share with you lovelies!  Yesterday I showed you the Dreamland Lacquer Halloween Trio and today I have the Outlander Collection!  Are you a fan of the Outlander books or tv series?  Do you love Jamie and Claire?  Do you love the history and romantic settings in Scotland and France?  I DO!  I read these books a few years ago (maybe more like 6 years ago) and was completely sucked into them.  They entailed history, romance, action, mystery, fantasy, a little horror - all around fantastic novels.  I was very excited when Noelie previewed her Outlander collection in the Dreamland fan group.  Eeeeeeee!  So I'm very happy to be sharing these with you now.  The Outlander Collection will be available on Monday 9/19 at 2pm Central.  You can purchase them during the 72 hour pre-order period for $11.50 each or $42 for the 4-piece set.  Now let's check these out!

Beauty Review: Styli-Style Lip Gloss

Morning beauties!  I have a lipgloss review for you today!  It's a new brand to me, but they were at CosmoProf in July.  Since my trip was a whirlwind though the convention floor in one day I missed this booth.  But my friend Melissa from The Daily Nail posted this brand on Instagram and since she has such fabulous taste in makeup and thought they were awesome, I knew I couldn't go wrong!  And when then arrived and I tried them...I was very happy I bought them.  Styli-Style is a makeup brand that has products for face, lips and eyes.  They also carry a variety of tools.  Well the neon and shimmer lip glosses are what caught my eye!  So I picked up a few and I love them!  Let's jump in and see what I got!

Girly Bits Cosmetics: Limited Edition September Colour Of the Month Duo, Sep-timber & Peace-oop

Good morning lovelies!  It's Labor Day Weekend, the official end of Summer.  How are you closing out the season?  With a pool party, a bbq maybe?  We decided to drive to Reno for the Rib Cook Off - what better way to say farewell to the hot season that to go out to the middle of nowhere to eat lots of bbq meat.  But since Summer is closing out, it's also a great time to start building up your Fall polish collection.  The upcoming Girly Bits COTM Duo are both perfect shades to get you started!  Sep-timber and Peace-oop will be available in 2 rounds, the first is from 9/6-9/10 with no limit on the quantity you purchase.  They are $16.50 CAD each, if you buy both during the early bird period in the first launch you can save a few bucks and get the duo for $31 CAD.  The second round will be on 9/24 and quantities are limited.  This round will stay open until the last day of the month or until product sells out.  So shall we delve in and see what Pam has created for us this month?  Yes, then let's do it!

Zoya Urban Grunge; Cremes

Good evening lovelies.  Hope your Friday has gone well!  Mine was nice and relaxing.  The house is clean, I did a lot of walking, had lunch with some girlfriends and the kids played with friends after school.  I'm racing tomorrow, but I have a lot of polish to swatch, and will be on the road a bit tomorrow so hopefully I have time to share more posts with you over the weekend.  For now I wanted to share the new Zoya Urban Grunge Cremes from the Fall 2016 collection.  Zoya makes really great cremes, the formula and application are always nice and easy to apply - which is really a huge factor in their popularity amongst the nail community.  These definitely fall right into line with the fantastic formula.  The creme set is only half of the entire set, but I thought I'd separate them out and focus on each group individually.  Urban Grunge is available now, you can pick them up for $10 each.  Let's jump in and check them out!

Lou It Yourself Booze And Bad Decisions

Good evening dolls.  I know, this late night post thing is becoming a habit.  But let me tell you, I played taxi mom all afternoon.  Literally from 3:30 to 7:30.  So it's the first chance I've had to sit down and get on the computer.  Last night I shared polish that was no longer available for purchase and tonight I'm doing it again.  SORRY!  Again, this was put up for sale while I was away on vacation and I actually had no literature saying when it was going to be sold so it was a surprise to me.  Of course it sold out right away.  Booze And Bad Decisions from Lou It Yourself was in the sample bag from Cocktails & Colors.   While you can't get this particular color there are lots of great polishes in the shop.  And the new Fall collection is coming up on 9/9, I've seen some sneak peeks swatches and they're gorgeous!  Watch ehmkay nails for her swatches coming shortly.  So let's jump in and check out Booze And Bad Decisions.
