ellagee, August Polish Pick Up; Sophia, Queen of the Side Eye

Morning dears!  The kids and I spent 6 hours out in the sun yesterday, playing in the water, going down slides, riding on tubes.  We still went to bed late, slept in, and are slowly getting our acts together for the day.  The plan is to head out to the Boardwalk but I've only got 2/3 kids on board.  I have to take that with a grain of salt because that 1 kid is my black sheep.  No matter what I say, he's the one who goes against it.  Every.  Single.  Time.  Lord help me, he's exasperating.  So exasperating I've also become a Queen of the Side Eye.  Haha!  Well that leads me into the polish named as such, inspired by the stunning Sophia Loren, who truly was the Queen of the Side Eye.  This polish is available through the August Polish Pick Up selections, from 8/4-8/7.  If you haven't figured it out yet, or somehow missed it, the theme is Old Hollywood!  Ok, ready to check this beaut out?  Let go then!

Different Dimension, Dorothy Dandridge; August 2017 Polish Pick Up

Good morning dears!  I've got a long, sun-worshiping kind of a day with my kids today.  I'm taking them over to the beach today.  I haven't been since my beach sand soccer tournament so I'm looking forward to just parking my butt on some sand and watching the kids play.  But for now I'm back with another Polish Pick Up post to share with you.  As I mentioned yesterday, the theme for August is Old Hollywood.  So think about all that glitz and glamour those stars and starlets had!  All the polishes I've watched (and seen so far) are spot on...classy and gorgeous!  Different Dimension picked Dorothy Dandridge as the inspiration for her polish and let me just say this one is a doozy!  Dorothy Dandridge will be available from 8/4-8/7 for $10 USD on the Polish Pick Up site.

Different Dimension, 90's Trio

Morning all!  What does this Summer Thursday hold for you?  For me...I'm taking the kids to the water slide park after swim lessons!  They have never been, and I haven't been in a really long time!  I'm equally exited and nervous to take them because I know they'll all want to run off in different directions.  So say a little prayer for my sanity!  Today I'm on here to show you the upcoming 90's trio from Different Dimension.  It's a limited edition trio, sold as a set, once it's sold out it's gone forever.  This trio isn't just a standard trio though, each of these polishes also work for stamping and water marbling!  How cool is that!?  Plus they're neon, so that's a huge bonus in my world.  They'll be available on 7/29 at 9am EST for $25 including shipping.  So are you ready to jump in and see these fabulous neons?  Me to, let's go!

Nail Hoot/Top Shelf Lacquer Duo; Hoot This Way & Drunk and Disorderly

Evening dolls!  I've tried to stay inside as much as possible this hot weekend.  Every time I went outside I felt like I was going to spontaneously combust.  But on the plus side my tan is off the hook! I just got home from soccer, my family wants to go out to Red Lobster because of the all you can eat's for a limited time you know.  Ha!  My 11 year old has been telling us about it all day.  So before we do that I figured I'd drop this fabulous new duo of you to oogle over.  I've tried polishes form both brands in the past and am always impressed...this duo really shows off how great both brands are!  The back story to the duo is a joke.  Brandie had a naming contest in her group and Amy suggested Hoot This Way.  Amy submitted that name for every contest Brandie had for a polish name.  Brandie FINALLY gave in and told Amy if she'd let her name a polish Drunk and Disorderly, she'd name a polish Hoot This Way.  And there we have the creation of this beautiful duo!  The duo is already available on the Nail Hoot website and the price is $18 plus shipping.  So let's jump in to the post and then you can mosey on over to shop!

ellagee Throne Shippers

Good morning and happy Sunday!  My littles are still asleep!  This is unheard of!  I suppose I wore them out yesterday by swimming for a few hours then the Earthquakes game and a fireworks show.  We rolled in to bed past 11 and that's definitely late for them.  But it's Summer so I'm not going to force them to get up.  Plus the house is so quiet right now.  Anywho, as you can tell yesterday was a busy day so I didn't have  chance to sit and share this amazing collection from ellagee that came out yesterday.  So I'm sharing it today and you can still swing by and shop the Throne Shippers collection, they are $13.50 each or $48.50 for the set.  The Throne Shippers is a fabulous multichrome collection inspired by Game of Throne relationships that Laura is curious about!  So these polishes are amazing and they also really make me want to see the next season of GoT!  Are you a fan?  Which relationship do you think will come to fruition?  While you under that, let's jump in and see the polishes!
