Vacation is over and everything is back to normal cuz it’s 2am on a work night and obviously it’s TIME TO WRITE A BLOG!
Now fast forward approximately 22 hours later, and the second sentence of this blog has officially been born. Sooooo … if you’re interested in wasting a whooooooole lotta time, I got tips and pointers complete with 17 charts and graphs and maybe an Excel spreadsheet, to be safe. Cuz you don’t get to Lazy, Level EXPERT by doing things in a timely manner. Ugh. Seriously, someone needs to come save me from me.
And now SUDDENLY! the Polish Pickup has already started and OMG, THE HIVES ARE LURKING! I’ve only got 2 polishes left to blog, so this is some kinda IDEAL SCENARIO if you ask me.
In other words, let’s get the hell on with it before the things are no longer the things. Take a look at what Victoria with BLUSH Lacquers has made for us this month:

Well, now that’s just stupid pretty, is it not? Gah! I’m not even gonna pretend normal things are happening over here. Cuz someone just tossed in a bunch of shifty business and I’m basically a big ole puddle of goo. Plus drool. And 27 other ladylike-type scenarios. OMG, am I still married cuz seriously I don’t even know.
As mentioned in my previous post, this month’s Polish Pickup theme is Monsters & Mythical Creatures. Victoria was inspired by a Percy Jackson version of a hippocampus. Check it out:
So then naturally, she made us something beautiful. It’s legit time to toss all composure out the freaking window, just so you know.
NOT YOUR AVERAGE SEAHORSE
DESCRIPTION: A navy based polish with a shifting orange-gold-green micro flake shimmer, shifting green-blue-purple-pink flakies and a light touch of scattered holo
OPACITY: Two coats, three if you’re crazy; obviously, I did three
Gah! I just love how those glittery things catch the light. Distracting, to say the least. Cuz you forgot you were reading this blog, didn’t you? Cuz I forgot I was even writing it.
Seriously, this polish is nothing short of STUNNING. Victoria always makes us such pretty things, but if we must choose favorites, this one is definitely at the top. Formula is magical perfection. And the Ugly Ecstasy Face is a dire thing.
More proof below!
Who’s still upright? Not a dadgum one of us, that’s who. I know y’all have 50-ish polish and polish-related things to choose from this month, but if this beauty isn’t somehow in your shopping cart, well then CLEARLY you are wrong.
So about this Polish Pickup thing, I’ll give you a brief rundown of talking points:
WHAT: A crap-ton of indie brands all coming together for a one-stop shop event; you buy one or all, it’s up to you! Flat $3 shipping no matter what.
WHEN: Right now thru all day Monday, October 9

The prices vary from brand to brand, but BLUSH Lacquers’ retails for $11.75. But happiness is priceless so that point is moot.

To be continued, loves! One more PPU to go!
