When your husband asks you what your plans are for his birthday and you answer “painting my nails,” just be aware the reaction you get isn’t quite as exciting as you’d expect.
So now I’m forced to do stuff outside the house this weekend, which requires slightly less pajamas than originally planned. Ugh. I suppose if there’s any one thing worth putting pants on for 72 hours, it’d be him. He’s a good guy. He pulls 18,000 nail polish packages out of the mailbox and only gives a skosh of a side eye.
Until then, though, it’s business as usual. Swatching and blogging and Full House marathons. Eating Funyuns, locked alone in a room, and wondering why skinny is taking so damn long. You know, if I wasn’t such a Trophy Wife, we’d all be worried.
Here’s something pretty:
• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •
This duo is a collaboration between Brandie with Nail Hoot and Amy with Top Shelf Lacquer, which started out as a joke. Brandie had a naming contest in her Facebook group, and Amy suggested the name “Hoot This Way.” For every contest after that, Amy continued to submit “Hoot This Way” as her entry. Finally, Brandie agreed to the name as long as she could name one of Amy’s polishes, and VOILA! a duo is born. And good news, guys: you’re buying it. Weeeeee!
First half of the duo is from Nail Hoot. Here is – FINALLY, in all its glory – Hoot This Way:
Worth the wait. Yes? YES.
DESCRIPTION: A rose gold holographic with strong gold flash
COATS: Two, but good coverage in one
If you’re a fan of neutrals, you’re gonna love this one. It’s the perfect polish for elegant, hand model-y, tiny cappucino cup holding scenarios. As we all do from time to time.
I did some nail art:
I might’ve accidentally got my birds confused on this one, cuz the longer I look at my ring finger, the more I am convinced that’s not a flamingo. Either that, or there’s some serious leg envy happening with the other flamingos. Ring Finger Flamingo is my baby sister who is lovely and lithe; Other Finger Flamingo is me who has a problem with potato chips. Ugh.
Used the Lina 4 Seasons – Summer 02 plate in case you’re curious.
The last half of the duo is from Top Shelf Lacquer. Here is Drunk & Disorderly:
Ooooh! There’s an accidental painting of all the surfaces lurking, I just know it.
DESCRIPTION: A medium blue crelly with scattered holo, a subtle purple shift and color-shifting chameleon flakies
COATS: Two, nice and smooth
But back to those flakies. Are they not divine?! Seriously, if you came here for the ladylike composure, well now is not the time for a flakie display. Cuz the amount of drool buckets happening over here is quite alarming to say the least. OMG, am I still married? I don’t even know.
Some mediocre mojo:
Do not ask why I did sharks. Sometimes when I nail art, my brain just goes away somewhere. I mean, it’s not the worst thing I’ve ever done, but an award is definitely not coming this time. Although I’ll take a Starbucks anyway, you know, if y’all not busy.
Used the Lina 4 Seasons – Summer 02 plate again in case recreations are in order. (They’re not.) NEXT.
The round up:
This precious little duo releases this Friday, July 14 so make sure you set approximately 17 alarms cuz rational behavior is for other people. There are 25 sets ready to go for immediate shipping, and POLISH EMERGENCY doesn’t even begin to describe this scenario. However, in case your priorities aren’t properly categorized, alphabetized and assorted by size and color then pre-orders will be taken until August 15. Targeted ship date on those is August 30, otherwise known as FREAKING LIGHT YEARS AWAY.
In other words, you better snag those first 25. DO IT. I mean it.
Price for the duo is $18 and they will ship internationally, so it’s an equal opportunity good day for everyone! Click here for shopping,

And while you’re in a clicking mood, follow me on Instagram. Cuz at this point, it’s just the right thing to do.
