Nail Hoot: Polish Pickup September 2017


Don’t mind me, I’m just sitting over here crying into a cupcake cuz I’m freaking 43 years old today and didn’t even wake up skinnier or prettier or NOTHING. What kind of rude birthday shenanigans is that?  Then hubby had a business trip to take this morning, so I was forced to walk about a thousand miles across the other end of the building to go get my own coffee.  Ughhhhhh.  GUYS.  I’m old now; I’m pretty sure I need to be lounging about as much as possible.  Pajamas on, feet up, and coffee just appears out of nowhere.  You know, in case the Universe needs a DADGUM REMINDER.

Good thing there’s nail polish!  We’re working our way through my Polish Pickup haul, desperately trying to post some time sensitive blogs sometime before the year 2037.  It’s going pretty well, but as y’all know, distractions are always lurking.  I’m one Full House episode away from falling down a rabbit hole.  In other words, we better get started.  Here’s the Nail Hoot contribution:


Oh, well now that’s just lovely.  I see shimmer!  I see flakies!  I see me picking my jaw up off the floor about 18,000 times.  If y’all came by for the ladylike behavior, clearly how WRONG you must be feeling right now.  Are you sweaty?  Cuz I’m sweaty.

Again, the Polish Pickup theme for September is Fall Foliage and Fun.  Again, the colors of fall make me a noodle leg-y mess.  How we’ll make it to the end of this blog, seriously I don’t even know.

Check out the inspiration for Brandie’s polish:

Told ya.  BIG. PUDDLE. OF GOO.  Who doesn’t want that over all their surfaces?  Crazy people.  People who don’t like happiness.  People who have no eyes.  Robots.  All the rest of us though:  GIMME.


DESCRIPTION:  A cherry red jelly with gold, pink and orange flakies

OPACITY:  Two delicious gloop-free coats

Listen, if I’m wearing a red, it’s gonna be a red like this one.  A red one with goodies in it.  This is truly one of the prettiest polishes in the sale this month.  Legit no joke.  Get it on your shopping list, stat.

More convincing up ahead:

Then I put her under the lamps cuz we haven’t drooled enough today:

Now, under the mood lights for ultra sexy scenarios:

Welp, you’re buying it.  At this point, you have no choice.

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, September 1 at 11am EST and will stay open all the way thru Monday, September 4. Cost varies between makers, but Autumn Fire will retail for $9.75, which is practically free in case you’re curious. Shipping is a flat $3, which is just one more reason to love everything about this scenario.

Okay, that’s it for this one.  More coming tomorrow.  Prolly double up on the blogging fun, cuz I’m starting to get anxiety.  Responsibilities are dire, people!  But the lure of the couch is some serious business.  (SEND HELP.)

Later, loves!
