Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer: Polish Pickup September 2017


Reason #1257 I hate shopping:

I got stuck inside of a shirt in a JCPenney’s dressing room.

GUYS. I swear the shirt fit going on, but suddenly it got 27 levels of claustrophob-y on its way back off.  Literally, I couldn’t find a way out of it.  Arm holes weren’t working unless I could manage a bit of elbow gymnastics, which CLEARLY I could not (cuz gymnastics = effort).  So after a billion fruitless minutes, anxiety plus a sweat bead mustache, I stood there staring at myself mid-disaster, sad and wondering WHAT THE HELL HAS HAPPENED TO MY LIFE?!

And then, I’m pretty sure I violated some kind of dressing room code cuz hubby had to come in there to take the shirt off for me.  I panicked a little and left the door open so we wouldn’t get arrested, although I’m not entirely sure where my brain was going with that course of logic.  In my defense, this is what happens when I’m forced to leave the house against my will.  Cuz no one ever got stuck in a shirt while wearing no pants and lounging on couches.  At least 23% sure of it.

In related news, I bought the shirt because OF COURSE I DID.

More Polish Pickup goodies!  This time, I’ve got something beautiful from Connie with Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer.  Check out this purple stunner:


Well, we’re all gonna need that one!  Like 18,000 bottles of it, cuz hers a pretty lady, that’s why. 

Again, this month’s theme is Fall Foliage and Fun, and I swear if my fall looked anywhere near something like this (instead of the brown and crunchy it normally is), I’d have zero problem with its unfortunate proximity to the hell that is winter.  For at least half a second anyway.

Here is Connie’s inspiration: 

Are you kidding me?!  That picture and this polish:  practically twins!  NAILED IT doesn’t even begin to describe this scenario.  Scroll for more proof:


DESCRIPTION:  A muted purple with red shimmer and taupe, greyish purple and iridescent microflakies

OPACITY:  This polish is pretty sheer, so I did 4 coats here.  Others got it opaque in 3.  HOWEVER, the formula is delicious, gloop-free perfection and 4 coats felt like it barely even happened.  I’d do it again, and coming from one who rarely goes the extra mile, that’s saying something.

More lolling tongues ahead:

This beauty just GLOWWWWWWS.  I can’t say enough good things about it.  Moan-y throat noises are about to come out, though, so let’s wrap this up real quick.  Lest hubby walks in and feels sad about the unattractive mess he’s married to.

If you need info on what the Polish Pickup is and how it works, click here for FAQs. The shop opens Friday, September 1 at 11am EST and will be available thru all day Monday, September 4. Make sure you don’t miss it! Otherwise who wants to be you on Tuesday, September 5?  Damn near nobody, pretty sure.

Falling For You will retail for $11.50, in case y’all like to budget instead of toss polish in the cart all willy nilly like me. Click here for shopping!  

Stay tuned, loves. This ride ain’t over yet!
