Sure wish hubby would go be stupid so I’ll have something to write about in this blog soon. I mean, it’s been at least two years since he tripped over the door and fell in the house, so I’m pretty sure we’re due for a good one. But nothing that involves the hands, though, cuz I’ll be needing sandwiches at some point.
So maybe he’ll wake up to a face full of cat butthole. Or perhaps a bird will poop on his eye while he’s minding his own business, and then spend the next 37 years self-diagnosing himself on the internet. Cuz that happened to me, and I’m a trillion percent certain it’s wayyyy funnier when I’m not involved.
Until then, however, this blog may have an extraordinary amount of BLANK SCREEN happening, which I assume makes for a very boring story. Unless you have no eyes. I dunno.
Let’s talk polish! I received two new collections from Lindsay with Night Owl Lacquer – a summery quad and a collaboration duo – and I’m super excited to show you. Are you ready for a whoooooooole lotta pretty? Well then lessss go!

THIS. Lordt. We’re already drool-y.
Okay, so here is the Beach Life Collection, four of the prettiest neon holographic flakie glittery goodnesses that ever lived. GUYS. They’re GLORIOUS! And you want them, oh yes you do.
First up is Life is Good Today:
This one has a neon orange base with gold galaxy holo microglitter, red/gold microflakies and different sized lime/gold and orange/green iridescent color shifting glitters.
Also possibly Cheeto cheese, and in which case, WE LUB IT MORE.
My eyes my eyes! All that in two magical coats.
Macro, a prelude to the 27 bottles you’re buying:
Then I did some nail art:
And I don’t hate it! It’s not gonna win a prize or anything, but we’ll take this brief moment of mojo while we can. Also, used the new Uber Chic Beauty 18-02 plate for this one.
Next up is Where the Ocean Meets the Sky:
This one has a bright blue base with iridescent sparks, neon blue microflakies and silver holo shreds. I just love it! The color is divine. For real, I’m roughly 2.5 seconds away from sticking my fingers in people’s faces. Although surprisingly, strangers don’t wanna look at mah nails! quite like you’d expect. Seriously though, they should LOOK AT THEM. I mean it.
If you’re thinking HAND MODEL!, you are correct.
An insane display of flakie:
You done died. You did.
Some mediocre nail art:
Meh. I don’t dislike it, but I sadly covered up too much of the blue. In my dreams, though, this looks freaking FABULOUS. Used the Lina Feeling Shapely 09 plate if you’re curious. (Are you though? Prolly not this time.)
Now here’s Toes in the Sand:
This one has a light sandy nude base packed full of gold shift, gold microflakies and clear galaxy holo microglitter. It’s such a precious, dainty little shade. Practically begs for a tiny cappuccino. Pinkies up, y’all! Cuz we are a bunch of classy ladies whether we like it or not.
Now, imagine this polish on someone whose fingers are slightly less sausage-y …
I know, right?! In the basket she goes!
That shimmer! So swoon-y.
Scroll past this one:
Cuz stamping with your eyes closed is never a good thing. Clearly. Ugh. Used the Moyra Dreamology 27 plate in case recreations are in order. Bahahahahaha!
Lastly, here’s Cold Drink in My Hand:
FOCUS. Cuz GREEN is happening. Glorious, beautiful, mind altering green. There’s probably a formula thing and a coats thing and maybe even other things, but at this point it’s all moot. As soon as I get control of my brain, then we’ll see.
This one has a neon green base with bright green sparks and holo flakies, and if it ends up on all the surfaces, well that’s the most logical next step.
Brace yourself for a noodle legs epidemic:
BIG. PUDDLE. OF GOO. Dang.
Here’s a thing I did:
Please tell me you know this is a kiwi. Cuz I showed this to my mother and she yells FIREWORKS! like an excited 4 year old child. So either I’ve nail failed (quite possible) or mama needs to go sit down in the back (also quite possible). Regardless, I love her. This mani though? Not so much.
Used the What’s Up Nails B008 plate, which is full of fun fruit designs for people who nail art in more appropriate ways.
The other new collection available is this fun little cutie pie, the Little Owlet Duo:
This duo is a collaboration between Lindsay and Jenalyn from the Two Girls One Blush blog. And no, it’s not particularly summery but OMG these are the polishes of my everyday dreams. Did someone cover me in a thousand toasty blankets and hand me a bunch of kittens? Might as well have.
First half of the duo is Bubbly Little Owlet:
Who needs a medium brown linear holo with copper shimmer, taupe and dark brown microflakies, white flakes and gold flakes in their life? Pretty much everyone, so lucky you, you’re buying it.
Under the lamp, she shines:
And now a macro EXTRAVAGANZA!:
Cat hair on the pinky FOR FREE!
Last half of the duo is Gloomy Little Owlet:
So this one is a dark brown linear holo with gold flakes and white flakes. Opaque in two quick coats, so perfect for those who like to go do stuff. Like socialize with friends or be Mom of the Year. Perhaps you enjoy saving the world from war and poverty. I, on the other hand, will just be sitting here having my husband bring me stuff on his way back from the kitchen.
DREAM SCENARIO, is what I’m saying.
Under the lamps, and OMG … ladylike composure is officially out the window:
More macros, more drool:
I don’t know what white flakies are all about, but I pretty much need them everywhere and all around me. Plus Starbucks and a Leonardo on top. I may never leave my house again. No pants for everyone!
Both of these polishes are awesome two coaters, easy to apply and absolutely lovely. They got me right in the feels, guys. They got me real good.
The round up:
Both of these collections are available now, so who’s about to have the best day ever? (You, to be clear.) Engage: Shopping Hand in 3 .. 2 .. 1 ..
The Beach Life collection retails for $33 or you can get a single bottle for $9; the Little Owlet duo is $20 or a single bottle retails for $10.50.
