Born Pretty Store: Round Stamping Leaf Design Plate

Hullo out there in nail polish land.  I am freezing my buns off at the boys practice field tonight.  I could go sit in the car but promised my daughter she could play on the playground while we wait for #1 to finish and #2 to start.  The plan is to then take #1 to a Halloween store to pick a costume because what he wants to be isn't gonna fly with me (nor do I think we will figure out the right size in a different language or will it arrive in time).  Anywho, I have a Born Pretty post to share with you and it's a lovely stamping plate that has perfect patterns for any season!  The design are great and you can just change up the colors you use to stamp with.   You can purchase this Round Stamping Plate Leaf Design SKU #40204 for $1.59!  That's like pennies to have fabulous nails, just click the link HERE to get the plate!  And don't forget you can save 10% using my code JTOW10.  Let's check it out!

Zoya; Element Collection, Fall 2018 - Part 1

Evening dears!  I had a race this morning, the Oktoberfest 5K Fun Run in a local park.  I only walked, except for the last 50 feet or so that we ran together across the finish line.  When I say we I mean me and my daughter.  We had another mom and daughter join us and it was a really fun time.  But I think that will be my last pregnant race, 7 races ain't bad!  Finished off the morning at the Oktoberfest festival and overall I ended up with over 5 miles walked!  Now I'm realizing in a camping chair waiting for my middle little's soccer game to start.  I figured I'd bring the trusty ol'
laptop with me to do some blogging and that's just what I'm doing now!  Ok so I've been sharing Fall colors from different brands and I have half of the Zoya Element Collection to show you.  I split it up into 2 parts because with how tired I am lately, swatching 12 polishes in a row is really exhausting.  So this is Part 1 with Part 2 to follow shortly.  The Element Collection is currently available and you can pick up these shades for $10 each or it's split in to 2 samplers of 6 pre-selected polishes for $60/set.  Now that you have that info let's jump in and see some pics.

Evening y'all!  The hubster is working on making some ribs in his new smoker, and I was looking for an activity to do with the kids but sadly the Winchester Mystery House Candlelight Tours are sold out, booooo.  So maybe we can go to a movie together?  I dunno, he said the ribs are going to take a long time.  So while I figure out out night I thought it would be nice to share another fab Fall collection that is currently available.  Alter Ego created the Harvest Colors collection, perfect shades for the season!  They are $9.50 for each 17ml bottle, or you can get the set of 7 for $51.  Also, don't forget that you can save 25% using my code My Nail Polish Obsession.  Alright, let's check out the polish!

Alter Ego October Indie Pickup Exclusive: My Own Worst Enemy Soap

Hey hey friends!  It's been almost a week since I posted, but I've been on a tight schedule with my kids this week and trying to get everything done and frankly I am just done.  I am worn out.  I am big and lumbering and waddling and aching and in pain every time the baby moves now.  4 weeks to go and I would be very happy if it was an early L&D.  Anyways, that does not excuse me from my commitments to my blog and the lovely makers who use me to showcase their products.  Let's start off with this fun soap that will be available during the Indie Pickup, which opens up tomorrow! So the theme for the IPU is the same as it was for the PPU, Villains.  Alter Ego went with Tyler Durden from Fight Club and also make a fabulous pink polish that matches the soap!  You can see my post for the polish HERE. The soap is called My Own Worst Enemy and is the iconic pink bar of soap from the movie.  It will be available from 10/19 - 10/22 for $7.  I am not sure of the cap on this one so pay attention if you really want this one!  Let's jump in to the post!

ellagee: TIS San Antonio Exclusives, The Moody Collection

Evening!  It was so nice to have the afternoon off from shutting the kids around.  My daughter ended up at a birthday party at the local park so the boys and I rode our bikes over to join them and have fun watching all the games.  I haven't been to a party with old fashioned games in a long time!  There were sack races, limbo, wheelbarrow races and 3-legged races.  The kids had so much fun, I'll have to remember those games in the future.  Well I just ate and am heading out to make a pumpkin shirt for a race I'm in this Sunday, so this will be a quickie post.  Tomorrow is The Indie Shop San Antonio.  So many of you lucky nail polish lovers are going to have a fun time.  ellagee will be there with lots of goodies to show off.  One such collection is the brand new Moody Collection, a trio-color thermal set.  Now I will put the disclaimer from Laura here for you to read: Thermal pigments are fascinating and so much fun to play with. At the same time they are very sensitive to extreme temperatures. Because of the hot weather in Texas (and then to me in California) my press samples were damaged during shipping. I didn't want them to arrive to customers as anything less than intended so I've decided to make them exclusive to the San Antonio Indie Shop, where they'll be available with their full thermal effect as shown in the swatch stick photos.  I did indeed receive polishes that are affected by the heat so only a few showed transition and I only saw 2 colors at best.  With that said, this collection will be exclusive to TIS San Antonio and leftovers will make their way to the website for online shopping.  The Moody Collection will be $12 for individuals and $50 for the set.  Let's check out the polish!

Morning.  I had the worst night sleep ever.  With the house being under construction the kids no longer have rooms and we are all squished in my room and the living room.  It was hot, every time my son moved around on the cot it woke me up.  Then I thought, I'll just snag a nap after I drop them off but nope.  Laborers are here demolishing more of the roof so bang bang bang they go!  So I'm cranky, tired and sick but I'm up and decided no better way to spend my time (ie avoiding the laundry or any real responsibility) is to blog! This weekend The Indie Shop is happening in San Antonio...I've been to 2 of TIS events before and let me tell you, they are uber fun!  If you can make it happen I highly suggest you go!  ellagee will be one of the vendors there and she'll have lots of polish for you to peruse and play with.  Today I have The Strange Magic Collection for you as well as the TIS exclusive.  The Strange Magic Collection is a gorgeous magnetic trio and will be $13.50 each or $35 for the the trio.  This trio will also launch online on 10/13!  And if you purchased the VIP ticket you will receive the TIS exclusive, Hello Texas!  So let's jump right in and check out the polishes!

LeChat Dare to Wear: Color Me Autumn, Fall 2018

Evening!  It was a fairly restful day for me.  I had a nice afternoon shopping around the Halloween aisles at Target.  I picked up a few decorations because all of my standards are packed away in a POD while we are re-doing the house.  Yes, literally right before the arrival of baby #4.  No, it won't be finished in time.  No, I have no idea how we are going to manage but we will.  Tonight, while the kids finish up homework and clean up I wanted to jump on and share a gorgeous and fun Fall collection with you.  This is the LeChat Color Me Autumn Collection.  It's currently available on their site and it's absolutely worth checking out!  I love their take on Autumn and LeChat has really been slaying with colors and formula lately.  These are a steal at $6.95 each!  Alrighty, let's check them out.

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer October Polish Pickup Exclusive: Scarlet Flame

Evening!  It's been a busy Friday for me so this is the first chance I've had to sit down and get this last post up to share with you.  I spent the week prepping you for the opening of the Polish Pickup and that happened this morning.  Have you ordered yet?  If you have that's ok, you can place another order and get a refund on shipping.  I only say this because you will probably want to purchase this vampy beauty by Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer!  Scarlet Flame is a fabulous magnetic polish that was inspired by Smaug from The Hobbit.  You have the potion to purchase this with or without a magnet, but I suggest you get the magnet, it's one of the bar magnets that is very strong and works well.  You should probably act quickly though because even though Scarlet Flame is available until 10/8, there is a 175 bottle cap (100 without magnet for $13 or 75 with magnet for $15)!  Let's delve in to the post quickly so you can make some important life decisions!

Evening!  Hopefully you had a great day!  I've been running around all night getting kids to games, practices and pick ups.  I actually jumped on the freeway headed home, on autopilot, and realized I completely forgot to pick someone up!  Oops!  Then I was late to pick up from the last practice and it was literally pitch black when I rolled up, sigh.  It's been a really busy day so I'm not being too hard on myself.  Ok so I am sneaking in with a quickie post for another fantastic Polish pickup shade that will be available tomorrow morning.  If this isn't on your wish list get it on there because it's one of the more unique thermals I have come across!  This is KBShimmer Resting Witch Face (the name alone would be good enough reason to buy it).  It was inspired by The Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz.

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!

Evening!  Hope you had a lovely weekend.  I enjoyed watching both of my boys play in soccer games and my daughter had her first Girl Scout meeting.  While I wasn't really on board with it at first I am thankful that it is so low commitment and I don't really have to do anything.  Fits with my  crazy schedule perfectly!  Before the weekend wraps up I wanted to share the newest Girly Bits CotM Duo with you.  These are always a favorite of mine because Pam's polishes are always fabulous...well these two are stunning!  And if you are a purple lover you are going to be so happy!  The September CotM Duo will be available until 10/1.  Take advantage of the early bird pricing available until 9/10, you can save a few buck when you get both shades.  $16.50 CAD each or $31 for the set.  Still available after the 10th but you will have to pay full price.  Let's go ahead and jump in to see Grape Escape and The Day Shift.

ellagee September Polish Pick Up Exclusive: Something Has Found Us

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!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel; Sunset Splash Collection

Good morning!  Look at me, 2 posts in a row.  Who am I?  Haha.  Well I have some gorgeous drugstore polishes to share with you today and you know what, I totally dig them all.  But what I dig most is that they are so easily accessible.  I used to drugstore polish shop very frequently, but my kids schedules took over my life and I spend a lot of time at the schools so that kind of killed that fun outing for me.  But it doesn't mean you can enjoy perusing the aisles of Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS or even Target to see what types of polishes they have on the shelves!  Aside from appreciating the ease of shopping for Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, I also like that you can coupon and save money on them most of the time.  Even if not you aren't breaking the bank with a huge price tag.  The Sunset Splash Collection consists of 6 shades that are absolutely perfect for the end of Summer, start of Fall!  Let's jump in and see what Sally has in store for us!

Alter Ego Polish of the Month; Space Octopus

Evening friends!  Hope your Thursday was spiffy!  My kids are officially all back in school and I took the opportunity to grab coffee with friends and shop for new clothes for my rapidly growing baby belly.  Then I realized I have failed on sharing this awesome Polish of the Month available over at Alter Ego.  Cynthia is going to have new monthly polishes along with her contributions to already existing groups such as PPU.  I have to say that if the August polish is any indication of what's to come I am excited!  Space Octopus is a fun polish with a funny name!  This is an LE polish so once it runs out it's gone.  You can still purchase Space Octopus now for $9.50!  Let's check out this awesome polish.
