I’m not even gonna pretend life goes on happily when hubby has to work all weekend. Cuz when he’s home, snacks just make their way out of the kitchen like magic, but now I’ve been sitting here putting pants on against my will for the past 9 hours cuz food is officially taking its DAMN SWEET TIME. Ugh. What is the point of a Sunday if I’m forced to do things in an anti-couch lounging kind of way? I ask you, WHAT IS THE POINT?
I tried to salvage the day somehow, but he’d left me only an inch of Cheetos in the bottom of a bag and the manual to the Keurig might as well have been written in Spanish. I thought maybe I should starve to death out of protest, but the novelty of that idea lasted roughly 2.5 seconds. I’m not good at goals, let’s just say. And the lure of a Starbucks is legit no joke.
In other words, someone spent an extraordinary amount of time being responsible today, so if an award is coming – well, that sounds about right.
Oh, but the polish! Missi with Different Dimension sent me some pretties to share with you today, and HOLO EXTRAVAGANZA! doesn’t even begin to describe this scenario. Here is the Americana Collection:
• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •
Gah! Y’all got your smelling salts handy? Cuz it’s about to get super pass-out-y in here, I just know it.
First up is One Flag, One Land:
This one is a linear red holographic with added holographic microglitters and larger linear holographic pigment. I swear, this red is CRAZY good. Practically a one-coater, and perfect for parties. So blingy and flashy and fun. Date night nails! Or napping nails, you know, if you’re me.
18,000 tickets to the Drool Convention, at minimum.
And then I did actual cute nail art:
Right?! Nothing innovative here, but I’ll take a horn toot if y’all not busy.
Used the Lina Feeling Shapely 01 plate for the stripes and the 09 plate for the stars in case you’re curious. (You are this time.)
Next up is One Heart, One Hand:
This one is a linear chantilly lace white/dove grey holographic with added color shifting shimmers, larger linear holographic pigment and holographic microglitters. And for some reason, this looks good on me. Usually light colors don’t play well with my pale skin, but I’m freaking looooving this! No sad sausages! Weeeee!
I did three coats of this one even though on most people it will probably only take two. Most likely, I did it wrong cuz it was 2 a.m. on a work night and half my brain was sleeping.
Lolling tongue alert!
And then this happened:
EFFORT. Someone got a second wind, clearly.
Used the Bundle Monster BM-XL201 plate and stamped over this awesome dry brush design. Then sat back and reveled in this brief moment of mojo.
Lastly, here’s One Nation Evermore:
This one is a linear cobalt blue holographic with added holographic microglitters, and OMG, my eyes my eyes! Is this not the most beautiful sparkly blue of all time ever? Ugh. Don’t mind me. I’ll just be over here, drooling in a thousand buckets. Cuz ladylike composure is officially OUT THE WINDOW.
An ocean of lovely:
This time around, I used striping tape and blocked off spots for color blocking. It was looking pretty good, but then the SILVER STAR STICKER MYSTERY HOUR happened, and … blah. Sometimes when I nail art, my brain goes away somewhere.
BONUS TIME! Included in this bundle is a limited edition cuticle oil called Rockets Red Glare:
Smells just like those rocket bomb popsicles you get from the ice cream truck, most specifically the cherry part of it. YUM! But it is NOT FOOD. I checked, so you don’t have to. Surpringly tastes less like popsicles than expected.
The round up:
The Americana Collection just released today so you’re all set to go! It’s extremely limited stock and won’t be restocked so we are in the midst of a dadgum POLISH EMERGENCY! in case you need to know. Plus, you get free shipping if you order Monday or Tuesday, and I’m not sure why 27 bottles isn’t already sitting in your cart at this point. Get on it, boo boos! You do not want to miss out.
Cost for this set plus the cuticle oil is $30. It’s not available as separate pieces but as a bundle only, which works just fine. Cuz no one does Crazy Nail Lady quite like you.
