Current status: in a hotel room in Chicago. Wrapped in a pink fluffy robe, iPad in the window, typing away à la Carrie Bradshaw and feeling super fancy. Hair piled on top of my head, drinking Voss water out of a wine glass, and a gorgeous view of skyscrapers is all around me. OMG, am I in a movie? Let’s see, three empty Starbucks cups, a no-pants situation in progress, and Leonardo is nowhere to be found. Still wearing orthopedic shoes and skinny is taking its damn sweet time. I mean, I caught a view of my butt in a the Bathroom of a Thousand Mirrors, and now I’m just gonna sit here and cry for the next 37 years.
In other words, NOPE. Just real life in all it’s forgot to shave my legs glory. Weeeeee!
A quick blog for you today, so afterwards I can get my life back on track or something. I have the Monthly Polish Awareness Box for June to review for you all, and like usual, every last one of these is headed for your shopping cart. Cuz how often do you get the chance to hoard all the polish and donate to charity all at the same time? Like never, I swear it. Anyone in the mood for some serious legit justification then? Well, here you all go…

Each month, the Monthly Awareness Polish Box partners with six awesome indie brands who create exclusive, customized nail polishes to fit the theme of that month’s charity. For June, Courtney has chosen to donate to the PTSD Foundation of America, a non-profit organization mentoring combat veterans and their families with post traumatic stress. I can’t think of a better way to spend some money today. Take a look at these:
Well, isn’t that one of the prettiest things you ever saw? Seen? You’ve ever seen? Ugh. One can’t grammar at a time like this. The point is, you lub it lots. Now let’s focus; there’s serious business up ahead.
First up is from Alter Ego:
This is Look Past the Sun, a dark yellow jelly with holographic red and black fine glitter. It’s a pretty sheer one; my swatch is three coats and you can still see my nail line. But it’s quite a unique shade – I don’t have a single one like it – and after roughly 1500 polishes up on my shelves at this point, that’s some good odds. So, there may be a lottery ticket EXTRAVAGANZA! later, which makes sense considering the sheer amount of normal behavior on display over here. Superhuman, to say the least.
Close up of the goodies:
Gah! You want!
Next up is from Pretty Beautiful Unlimited:
This is Overcoming Nightmares, a medium red holographic with lavender shimmer, silver and pink glitters and micro shreds, blue to purple shifting micro glitters, and a smattering of crystal chameleon flakes. Whyyyyy, that’s a whole lot of pretty all in one place! Plus magic, plus happiness. If it came with a side of Starbucks, no one’s surprised. PERFECTION, is what I’m saying.
Two coats; lookin so fly:
A delicious macro:
Who wants to lick that one?! Except SOCIETY says NO. Boooo.
Now here’s one from Darling Diva Polish:
This is I’m a Survivor, a topper loaded with Pegasus pee, a light sprinkling of holo, color shifting glitters and holo flakes. My swatch shows it not as a topper, cuz I don’t plan things very well. Instead, I applied three coats over naked nails, and while it’s still kind of sheer, the ethereal quality of it is jaw droppingly stunning. Like, a puddle of goo scenario is happening next, I’m quite certain.
Check out that glow:
Macro, for extra drool factor:
If you’re not super hardcore in love with this right now, we need to talk about some things.
From Night Owl Lacquer:
This is Not All Wounds are Visible, a luscious teal with bright purple shimmer, purple to blue shifting iridescent shreds and a nice dose of scattered holo. GUYS. It’s time to roll the couches over cuz it’s super pass-out-y in about 2.5 seconds. Bring the smelling salts and one of those cute boys holding a leaf fan. Cuz you can’t just toss in a purple and blue dreamboat and then expect anything ladylike to happen next. Nope, it’s sweaty to, like, the trillionth degree.
Everything Lindsay makes is perfection. I dare you to determine otherwise.
An ocean of lovely:
COMPOSURE: out the window.
Next up is from Sassy Pants Polish:
This is Don’t Trigger Me, a bright hot pink jelly with assorted iridescent glitters and white holographic microglitters with a blue shimmer. And aside from all that, I’ll just be over here reattaching my jaw to my face about 18,000 times. BRB.
My eyes, my eyes! That blue shimmer is so glowy and those glitters give me a severe case of the GRABBY FINGERS. At minimum.
Doh! How will I ever remain upright again?
Lastly, from O-My Jewels:
This is There But Not, a creamy pale blue with holographic sparkly microglitter. All you blue lovers, pay attention! This one has your name written alllllll over it. (Seriously. I checked.) Walking out of this blog with approximately 27 bottles of this beauty in your cart? Sounds about right. Cuz you don’t get to CRAZY NAIL LADY by being rational, let’s just say.
To seal the deal:
Oooooh, you’re about to spend some money I can already tell. Best day EVER coming up next!
The round up:
Pre-sale for this box opens on Friday, May 26 and will run until June 9. Cost is $52 + shipping and 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the PTSD Foundation of America. You also have the option to just buy one polish or a set of 4, although that point is moot since we’ve already decided. All six, darlings!
To purchase, click here. Then stalk the mailman cuz it’s the most logical next step.

And now you may get back into pajamas. Cuz good decisioning is hard work sometimes.
