Night Owl Lacquer: Polish Pickup January 2018



I think I’ve forgotten how to blog. I took a four day break, and now I’ve been sitting here for the past 18 hours staring at a blank screen. Words, why you no write yourself?!  Ugh. It’s hard to be clever when the brain is on vacay.  And covered in 132 brand new sweaters. Did I tell you I’ve developed a shopping problem?  I mean, just cuz I haven’t been blogging doesn’t mean I haven’t been productive.  Hubby looooooves being married to me, I’m about 23% sure of it.

But time to get back to responsibilities. I’ve gotten a ginormous slew of pretties for the January Polish Pickup to share with you, and if I don’t start blogging them now, I’ll be telling you things after the things are no longer the things.  Which is the most un-ideal of all ideals, and I don’t carpal tunnel for no dadgum good reason.  So here we go!

Something gorgeous from Night Owl Lacquer, also known as the first thing you’re buying:

Told ya. There’s no way you’re not getting this one. Cuz those flakies voodoo you real good this time. 

The theme for January is Crystals & Gemstones, and Lindsay was inspired by a stone drawn by her artist mom, Kim.  I swear, I thought this was a real life stone, not a drawing. How gorgeous! And so talented! All I can do is crochet scarves the size of potholders and lounge on couches (except not in a sexy way), and surprisingly that makes ZERO money and/or pays bills of any kind. Good thing I’m such a Trophy Wife or else we’d all be worried.

Naturally, a beautiful inspiration has begat a beautiful nail polish, cuz Lindsay’s creation is straight up ridiculous.  In a good way. A GREAT way.  An accidental painting of all the surfaces type of way. Get ready for the swoons!


DESCRIPTION:  A silver holographic with pinkish red to yellow shifting shimmer, charcoal flakies, bright silver flakies and three different shades of color shifting ultra chrome chameleon flakies

OPACITY:  Three coats, although two was pretty good

The shimmer is just glorious, y’all, and those flakies got me closing my eyes and smiling to myself like an idiot.  Nail polish makes me stooooopid, I won’t lie.  Emergency alert for hubby:  LOOK AWAY!  LOOK AWAY!  Cuz mama needs to get unattractive real quick.
