Madam Glam: Chrome Powders - Apollo 11, Calypso & Misty

Good afternoon!  I just got back home from participating in our local Veteran's Day parade.  I walked with my daughters Girl Scout troop and the girls waved flags and handed out handmade thank you cards to the Veterans they saw along the route.  It was a really great parade and we had a nice time out there appreciating those who have served our country.  Now I'm home waiting for the 49er game to start and figured I'd jump on here and get some work done!  Today's post features more chrome powders from Madam Glam.  I love they variety of colors offered in this shop and that you can use these over any base color.  Especially the ones that have a bit of a color shift - they look different over  all kinds of color bases!  You can pick up the chrome powders on sale for about $12 per 5 gram jar.  If you use my code jennyt30 you'll save 30% off your order. Let's check out the post! 

Side note - these all appear to be in the Outlet section of the shop so possibly they are going to stop carrying them?

Simple Fall Gradient with Zoya Leigh & Cam

Evening all!  It was a soccer filled weekend for me again.  My boys have a loaded end of the season so it's going to be games upon games upon games until mid December while most other clubs have ended or are about to end.  But it's ok, I just out on my Soccer Mom hat and enjoy the time spent with my kids.  Anywho, I recently used this gradient for a Halloween mani but wanted to share the gradient itself since it was pretty cute for the season.  I used Zoya's for this and both shades are still available!  Let's check it out.

KBShimmer: Up & Autumn Collection, Fall 2019

Happy Sunday Y'all!  I had a busy weekend on the books - soccer games, Halloween parties, school festivals, volunteer hours and a birthday party.  Trying to squeeze in a quickie post tonight featuring a dozen amazing polishes before my head hits the pillow.  I usually do a picture or two of each polish when the collection is this large, but when there are so many colors and shifts and finishes to show off its too hard! So this is a picture heavy post. Grab a coffee, tea, beer, wine, water, whatever floats your boat, and grab a comfy spot on the couch for this one.  

This is KBShimmer's Up & Autumn collection for Fall 2019 is truly fabulous.  There is only 1 creme in the group (so if you are a creme lover this is probably not for you).  This collection launched on 10/11 so they are all already available and you can shop immediately!  The entire Up & Autumn collection will set you back $94 or you can pick up individual shades for $10 each.  Let's jump in a d check out the post.

Stella Chroma: October Trio, 2019

Hullo, hullo!  Monday, you weren't so bad!  I got to the gym for a weight lifting sesh with friends and then even ran a few miles on the treadmill.  Polishing off the rest of the birthday cake in my house pretty much negated any good I did earlier, oh well, it's a step in the right direction!  

I have a beautiful trio to share with you this evening, the Stella Chroma October Trio.  These pink beauties are different shades and finishes, so truly something for everyone here.  Pam will be donating a portion of the sales to her local hospital to help pay for mammograms for women who don't have health insurance.  These are not LE, but only the sales in October will go towards the donation.  You can pick these up for $12-$13 each or $33 for the trio (only until 10/11).  Let's jump in and see what the October Trio is all about!

Evening!  Guys I have to tell you, this post is behind schedule.  I got sick and have been doing little to nothing for the last week.  It all started with a case of mastitis, which led to awful heartburn and nausea from the antibiotics (which I am still taking), and to round it all out a night of food poisoning. I'm a bit of a train wreck over here but I'm still plugging along.  So tonight I have the July Fit Snack box to share.  Great news is there were some delicious items in the box.  Bad news is that the box isn't available now.  But you will be able to get the August box soon!  If you haven't tried a box yet you can order a one time, 3 month, 6 month, etc...

786 Cosmetics; Jakarta, Isfahan & Pretoria

Sigh.  I'm sitting over here equally looking forward to and dreading tomorrow.  First day back to school.  I am happy to get some quiet time, but I will miss having the kids at home to hang out with.  I'm also not looking forward to early wake up times.  Even though they do drive me a bit nuts, they are good company and we have plenty of good times together.  I am nervous because 2/3 are starting a new school.  I hope they find people to sit with for lunch, find people to talk to in class, play with on the playground.  I know they will be find and I am just being a worrisome Mama Bear.  I'm currently prepping the requested luncheon menu for next week - musubi.  I am not sure how long they will last but at least they don't take too much work to prepare.  While I wait for the spam to marinate in the sauce I figured I'd share my latest swatches.  These hail from 786 Cosmetics.  I have reviewed this brand before and I am impressed with their formula, color line up and message - being inclusive to all cultures and celebrating all beauty.  786 Cosmetics makes nail polish that is vegan, breathable and halal friendly. You can see my previous post HERE.  Tonights post features 3 gorgeous purples; Jakarta, Isfahan and Pretoria. You can pick them all up now for $12.95.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer; IEC 2019 LE Shades - The Best of the Best & The Worst of the Worst

Morning again!  Hope your Friday is running smoothly!  We had some school things to take care of yesterday but today we have 100% nothing to do.  Well I have nothing to do, but my son, who is in Advanced Math, hasn't finished his Summer math homework and only has 5 days of Summer left.  So you know that means we are sitting at home, he gets no mouse, no phone, no tv remote until he finishes it up.  I swear that kid is such a procrastinator.  Other than that I am happy to show you some polishes that will be at the Indie Expo Canada next weekend.  These are both from Lollipop Posse and are Limited Edition.  Whatever doesn't sell at the event will be up for grabs on the website at some point after.  The Best of the Best and The Worst of the Worst will be $13 CAD each.  And if you are thinking of making the trek to Toronto, the IEC is on 8/18 and you can still get tickets HERE.  Until then, keep your fingers crossed for an over-pour/extras announcement from Karen!

Alter Ego; Proud To Be Me Collection, IEC August 2019

Did any of you watch the new 90210?  I was a huge fan back when I was a kid, hell, I still watch the reruns when I'm home hanging out on the couch.  I enjoyed the show, all the jabs at themselves.  Can't wait to see how the show develops.  Did you know they are filming it in Canada?  Do you know what else is happening in Canada...The Indie Expo Canada! This is the awesome indie event hosted by Pam from Girly Bits.  If you have the opportunity to attend I highly suggest you do!  It's so fun to peruse the tables in person, to meet the makers and to get some great deals.  The IEC is on 8/18 in Toronto.  Looks like you can still get tickets HERE.  

Today I have some pretty shades from Alter Ego that will launch at the IEC.  These 4 polishes make up the Proud To Be Me collection.  In a world full of negativity it's nice to have little things that help you remember the positive.  Cynthia's collection is full of positive vibes and acceptance. The Proud To Be Me collection will be available online sometime after the IEC and they will be $10.  Of course you will be able to save 20% with my code My Nail Polish Obsession.

Lollipop Posse; Hella Handmade Creations, August 2019 - I Make Things Want Things

Good day to you.  And happy middle of the week.  Still on the back to school countdown.  1 week to go and Dobby is FREEEEEEE!  I think I am more nervous than excited this year because 2 of my kids are starting a new school.  I know they'll be fine though.  I changed schools a few times as a kid and my husband did a lot.  I mean A LOT.  And he was totally fine too.  Just my being a mom, hoping they make friends, have someone to sit with at lunch. So anyways, that's what I'm thinking about lately.  
Let's talk polish though!  The HHC opens up soon and I have a stunning polish from Lollipop Posse to share with you.  This month Karen brings us I Make Things Want Things, inspired by Neil Gaiman's Sandman graphic novels.  I don't know much about Sandman, but I know Neil Gaiman has been hot on the Fandom scene lately. I also know this polish is a hands down stunna!  You can purchase I Make Things Want Things from 8/14 - 8/21.  It will be $13, no cap.

The Makers Dozen, August 2019: Alter Ego - Magenta Mystery Snail

Good morning!  Guys, I am literally waiting bated breath, trying to keep my sanity together as the end of Summer comes up.  My kids aren't getting with the regularly scheduled program of hitting the sack early, falling in to the standard routines.  And they are going berserk, like how some kids get even more wild when they are exhausted at the end of the night instead of just falling asleep.  I think I need the routine also.  I am staying up entirely too late every night, eating horribly and not working out. So while I ride out the remnants of this storm I figured I'd try to blog for a little "serenity now" moment.  

Makers Dozen is back again, the August theme is Tropical Marine Life!  And like past months, colors are assigned to the makers.  Alter Ego got magenta and she drew inspiration from the magenta mystery snail - this is really a thing.  You can pick up your bottle of Magenta Mystery Snail through the month of August OR until the 40 bottle limit is reached.  It is $10 and you can save 20% using my code My Nail Polish Obsession.  Let's jump in to the post and learn a little more about this polish.

August 2019 Polish Pickup: At the Carnival

Good afternoon!  I'm just getting back to regular after a vacation with the family.  Vacations are so fun, but the packing and traveling is so tiresome.  Especially when I have to pack myself and 4 kids.  That's why it's nice to take day trips to close by events like festivals and carnivals.  Speaking of carnivals, that is the theme for August, At the Carnival and it's open 8/2 - 8/5.  If you haven't browesd the albums in the Facebook group yet you should totally do so and the site is open so get over there and make your wishlist!  There are loads of amazing shades coming out. Let's jump in and I'll show you what I was lucky enough to review.

Madam Glam: Chrome Powders - Sunstone, Luna & Starz

Morning all!  Back on the old blog today with a brand I haven't tried yet but do see all over the place.  Madam Glam is known for beautiful gel polishes, but as you know, I don't wear gel polish.  But I did received a few of the chrome powders and gave them a whirl.  There are SO MANY chrome powders to chose from!  I do think these are fairly easy to use, but there is a learners curve and since I've only tried chrome powders a few times I am definitely not a professional.  So please excuse mistakes and know any knocks or smudges are totally user error and nothing to do with the powders.  Hopefully I'll get more practice with these! You can pick up the chrome powders for about $15 per 5 gram jar.  If you use my code jennyt30 you'll see 30% off your order.  So let's jump in and check out the chromes.

Alter Ego: July 2019 Group Custom - Son of Land and Sea

Good morning friends.  Plugging along this week, trying to get all the things I need to do in my life done.  Trying to be good at adulting.  Why is it so hard?  Why can't I just eat ice cream for breakfast and stay up all night long?  Because my kids are watching me and it's a bad example, womp.  Fine, I'll eat real meals, I'll wear pants.  But I'm still going to play with nail polish!  So let's do that.  Today I have the July Group Custom for the Alter Ego fan group.  It's Son of Land and Sea and the color is perfectly sea-like.  You can purchase this lovely and sparkly polish through July for $8.50.  And my code: My Nail Polish Obsession will get you 20% off.  Let's dive in and see this polish!
