Staying on task is hard, you guys. Considering the sheer amount of pajamas happening every evening after work, you’d think I’d manage a to-do list with just two things on it like a dadgum champion. Instead though, it’s like SQUIRREL!, SHINY QUARTER! and then suddenly I’m head-lolling in the midst of an accidental 8pm nap, mouth agape for extra attractiveness. Seriously, if time-wasting was a sport, I’d be sooooo freaking skinny by now.
And in other news, I’m still married! Apparently all this chaos makes me adorable. Who knew?
Let’s look at pretty things! I received a most amazing trio of polishes from the lovely Karen with Lollipop Posse Lacquer to share with you today. If you’re in the mood for something dark and gorgeously sexy, get your focus face on cuz it’s serious business up ahead. Take a look!
• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •
I’ll admit I was expecting something a little more Leonardo-y. But this is okay too.
The Polish Revamped group on Facebook has Lollipop Posse Lacquer on the radar this month and I’m so so excited! I was gonna say something sexy to describe the customs Karen made for us, but today is not the day for a Rude Husband Laughing-type scenario. So here’s what Karen has to say instead:
We worked closely with the group admin, Elena, to create an amazing trio of Summer Playlist favorites intended to bring to mind the heat of a summer night … That slow, easy feeling. Neon lights on wet cement. Sensuality, and that midnight buzz in the air.
— Karen, Lollipop Posse Lacquer
See? Just try leaving this blog without spending some money. It’s nigh on impossible.
First up is Earthcrosser:
It’s two a.m. and it’s quiet again / Where’s my lip gloss? / And the ringing in my ears from playing too loud / I hear the ocean, I hear the crowd …
— Veruca Salt, Earthcrosser
This one is a matte-finish teal crelly that suspends microflakies and green, gold, teal and blue shimmer. If you’ve never tried Karen’s matte shimmers, well guess who’s about to have a BEST DAY EVER? (You, to be clear.) They are some of the best polishes I own. Perfect, smooth formula, opaque in two coats, ultra matte but with this insane mesmerizing glow. For real, it’s 18,000 tickets to the Drool Convention with this one, AT MINIMUM. If there was ever a time to close your eyes and smile to yourself like an idiot, now would be it.
Oh, the Ugy Ecstasy Face. It is so dire.
Next up is Passion Fruit:
Listen, seeing you got ritualistic / Cleansin’ my soul of addiction for now / ‘Cause I’m fallin’ apart, yeah / Tension between us just like picket fences / You got issues that I won’t mention for now / ‘Cause we’re fallin’ apart …
— Drake, Passionfruit
Here we have a smokey purple crelly that suspends a blue/green shifting shimmer. Do you see why I love Karen? DO YOU SEE? Everything she does is magical. The mix in this polish is stunning to the trillionth degree. There may be some random hand modeling scenarios later with this one, pretty sure. Cuz running your fingers languidly over toasters and clock radios just happens sometimes whether you like it or not.
You want this, oh yes you do.
Lastly, here’s Crave You:
I walked into the room dripping in gold / Yeah, dripping in gold / I walked into the room dripping in gold / Dripping in gold / A wave of heads did turn, or so I’ve been told / Or so I’ve been told / My heart broke when I saw you kept your gaze controlled …
— Flight Facilities, Crave You
This one is a red/magenta based multichrome that suspends large gold flakes and smaller holographic microflakies. Excuse me while I drool in a thousand buckets. Cuz hers a pretty lady, that’s why.
In a market where multichromes are everywhere and they all start to sort of seem the same, Karen has managed to make this one completely unique and jaw droppingly beautiful. I mean, the FLAKIES, guys. The dadgum flakies! If this one somehow ends up on all the surfaces (mine AND yours), no one’s surprised.
You need to scroll back up and look at those again, just to aid the convincing. And if you’re still not sure, I’m var var sad about your brain. Also, the fence is no place for a lady.
The round up:
These polishes were made exclusively for the members of the Polished ReVamped group on Facebook. To snag you some bottles, here’s your to-do list:
Click here to join the group, then click here for shopping – that’s it. Easily manageable, unless you are me. I’ve been writing this one sentence for the past 18 minutes cuz the Full House Marathon Distraction Epidemic is legit no joke.
Prices vary depending on the polish. Earthcrosser and Passion Fruit retail for $9.50 and Crave You (cuz she fancy) retails for $11. But happiness is PRICELESS, so 27 bottles in your cart, stat.
Okay, get on it boo boos. This trio is only available until June 30, and then they will be gone forever. You do not want to be that person on July 1 wondering what has become of your life, i.e., trio-less and sad. If you have to write 7,856 Post-It Note reminders, so be it. Now is not the time for rational behavior.
