Wasn’t I just in here doing the Polish Pickup? I swear I was, but somehow another month has flown by and here we are again, about to hoard us all some polish. Not too shabby of a way to spend a few days, that’s for sure. Plus, my birthday is tomorrow and I’m fully expecting Leonardo to show up and hand me a Starbucks. Cuz when hubby asked me what kind of gift I wanted, I’m almost certain he knew I meant EXACTLY this. Otherwise, turning 43 may start off on a very wrong foot. Although, maybe a Christian Louboutin-clad one, which in that case: I forgive you.
In related news, hubby just loooooooves being married to me, I’m about 23% certain.
Oh, but yeah. The Polish Pickup. It’s happening in a few days, and you need to be prepared. Put your focus face on, people! Cuz there’s some serious business up ahead. Presenting Lakeside Manor by BLUSH Lacquers, also known as the first thing you’re buying:

Gah! So pretty! Of course, anything Victoria does is pure magic. If you’ve never owned one of her polishes, well now is not the time to continue doing what other thing you’ve been doing besides buying all the BLUSHes. In fact, you’re tossing 18,000 bottles in the cart to make up for it. Completely rational behavior? NOT TODAY!
For the month of September, the Polish Pickup theme is Fall Foliage and Fun. If there’s one thing I love about fall, it’s the color of it. So cozy and warm and comforting. Soothes my soul like nothing else. And as long as I can enjoy it from the inside of my house, covered in a crap ton of toasty blankets, me and fall: well, we’s best friends.
Here’s the inspiration photo for Lakeside Manor:
Whyyyyy, that’s a beautiful foggy morning on a lake! If I had something like that to wake up to every day, there’s a .179568% chance I’d make it to work on time. As opposed to the negative one billion I’m currently doing. Ugh.
DESCRIPTION: A light grey-blue base multichrome with shifts of coppery-bronze, gold and green
OPACITY: Three effortless coats
And it’s FREAKING DREAMY. That shimmer is insanely pretty, and I kinda sorta want it all over my body. For real, you guys, if anything ladylike happens next it would be a damn near miracle.

How unattractive are you right now? (VERY.) It’s a drool bucket EXTRAVAGANZA! with a side of noodle legs, at minimum.
