The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer: Polish Pickup August 2017


Bonus blog!  I know we were just in here, but guess who still has 7,397 blogs to write?  And considering the fact they don’t write themselves – although WHY NOT?! is the actual question – I figure we might have to do some double duty in order to get them all posted relatively on time.  Who wants to find out what’s for sale at the Polish Pickup BEFORE all the polish goes away forever?  I mean, someone thought this whole thing out, clearly.  Best blogger ever?  I think YES.

I received 9 polishes for this month’s sale, which is only slightly less than the billion I swatched last month, but if I told you I was any less stressed about it, you’d DEFINITELY be reading someone else’s blog.  Cuz I can procrastinate like a DADGUM champion, and even though I have the most thorough and organized To-Do List of all time, suddenly I’ve lounged on the couch too long and then it’s a SWATCHING FRENZY! plus anxiety and a sweat bead mustache.  In other words, I’m not very good at goals.

I’m not even sure any of that was proper grammar, but now is not the time to be particular.  Cuz the Polish Pickup waits for NO ONE.  It’s happening, people; a legit no joke POLISH EMERGENCY.  Get your focus face on; there’s some serious business up ahead.  Here’s the contribution from The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer:


As mentioned a mere one post ago, the theme for August is Old Hollywood.  Mardi was inspired by the classic Alfred Hitchcock movie, Psycho, and Norman Bates’ famous line, “A boys best friend is his mother.”  Now, I haven’t seen Psycho, which I’m pretty sure disqualifies me as an actual person, but from what I can gather, this Norman guy is a bit of a loon.  Perhaps he too has a nail polish problem.  I mean, I get it.  Cuz when it comes to a bottle full of flakies and glitter and holo, oh my!, it’s var var hard to not get stabby.

OMG, what?!  Shut up, Brain.

Take a look at what you’re about to buy:

Now here’s where we all run for our drool buckets.  Seriously, can we ever be sexy, even just for a little bit?  NO. WE. CANNOT.

DESCRIPTION:  A dark gray/black base that leans brownish-purple in certain lighting/angles and is filled with red color shifting shimmer, rose pearl flakies, red holo and metallic microglitter, silver holo microglitter and silver holo flakies

And a Starbucks on top!  Well, prolly.  That’s a lot of goodies, guys!  How this doesn’t cost like a billion dollars defies allllll the comprehensions.  Lucky for us, though, it’s only $11.  Unless we buy 18,000 bottles, which in that case, we’re not ruling it out.

Ooooh, ice cream just appeared out of nowhere. BRB.

Seriously, skinny is taking its own sweet time, in case you’re curious.  Ugh.

This polish is ridiculously pretty.  First of all, it looks mostly brown to me, which is one of my most favorite colors.  Then that flash of red is so super swoon-y, I can’t even look at it without dying a little.  Gah!  There’s an Ugly Ecstasy Face-type scenario happening over here, just to be clear.

No macros, to seal the deal:

DONE.  In the cart she goes!  Weeee!

I typed it all out in my last post, but no one’s in the mood now for carpal tunnel so if you’d like more info on the concept of the Polish Pickup, you can read the FAQs here.

The sale opens on Friday, August 4 at 11am EST and will stay open all the way thru Monday, August 7. Cost varies between makers, but A Boy’s Best Friend will retail for $11. Shipping is a flat $3, which is just one more reason to love everything about this scenario. So click here for shopping then!

Okay, that’s it for this one.  More coming tomorrow, so be sure to check back.  In the meantime, set 17 alarms and put Post-Its on all your surfaces.  Otherwise known as COMPLETELY NORMAL BEHAVIOR.

Later, loves!
