Night Owl Lacquer: Polish Pickup May 2017


If coughing and sneezing can be counted as cardio, I’d be sooooo freakin skinny by now.  Ugh.  I am not well, guys.  I have either allergies or a cold, but either way, I am a snotty, snorty, accidental peeing kind of mess.  Super good looking, as you might imagine.  Cuz nothing says Hello, Sexy! quite like a wife with the voice of a man and a wad of Kleenex hanging out her nose.  If I stay married after this, we’ll all be surprised. Although, hubby sees me let my fat out after pasta all the time, so maybe there’s a chance.

Hubby says I’m sick cuz I don’t go to bed like a normal person.  Apparently 5 hours of sleep per night isn’t enough to function properly.  I don’t know if that’s true or not, but you don’t get to be NAIL BLOGGER EXTRAORDINAIRE by going to bed before 2am, I’m almost certain.  And of course, my fake bakery needs enough cake for all its customers, and that doesn’t just happen all by itself.

I’m trying to get better though, trying to strike a nice balance between doing nails and keeping myself alive.  One day I’ll hit my stride, and figure it all out.  I suppose as long as sandwiches keep coming (and Mucinex at this point), I’ll be doing alright.

So while I sit here behaving all sorts of unattractive, let’s get to the point.  The May Polish Pickup is just around the corner, and I know y’all just dying to get out your grabby fingers.  There’s about 17 brands participating this month with some pretty amazing polishes, so if there was ever a right time to get off your no-buys, now would be it.  It’s a bye bye checkbook type situation for you, in case you didn’t know.

I have a couple of the offerings to show you this week, so let’s start with this beauty from Night Owl Lacquer.  Here is Collapsed Star:


Excuse me.  I’m gonna need some smelling salts and someone to come hold my mouth shut, stat.

Each month, the members of the Polish Pickup Facebook group get to submit and vote on a theme.  May’s theme is Science, and Lindsay chose this beautiful photo as her inspiration.  Take a look at this:

Now take a look at this:

Basically twins.

This polish has a black base and it’s loaded with green shimmer, black holo microglitter, blue and green galaxy holo glitter and electric blue flakies.  That’s a ton of goodies! And it’s so deliciously perfect, I’m about 2.5 seconds away from HAND MODEL!, I just know it.

And now, for extra drool factor:

I die, I die! Dark polishes like this have me feeling some type of way, for sure.

So this is how this thing works.  The Polish Pickup shop goes live on Friday, May 5 at 11am EST.  At approximately 11am and 1 second, you’re tossing every single one of these in your shopping cart.   Plus 27 backup bottles.  Then you’re gonna get back into pajamas cuz you’ve had a hard day.

In case you’re unable to prioritize properly, the shop will stay open until Monday, May 8 at 11:59pm EST. After that, every last one of these polishes:  GONE.  Forever.  As in POLISH EMERGENCY! so be sure to get your life in order or else it’s a sad state of affairs for you.

Prices for the polishes are all different; Collapsed Star in particular will retail at $9.  Shipping is a flat rate of $3 no matter if you buy one polish or if you buy all of them.  I don’t do the maths too well, but I’m thinking that’s a pretty good deal.

More tomorrow.  Later, loves!
