Road to Polish Con Week 2: Lollipop Posse Lacquer



GUYS.  An award has finally come, just landed in my lap like NO BIG DEAL.  Cuz I scored a primo spot on the official blog team for Polish Con, and I swear I must’ve voodoo’ed someone real good this time.  This is big time stuff y’all!  Someone out there appreciates this blog full of nonsense, and I’m having the BEST DAY OF ALL TIME EVER.  First Spelling Bee Champion of 1987 and now this.  Why I’m not married to Leonardo by now defies allll the comprehensions.


Polish Pickup March 2018: Books



Time once again for everyone’s favorite Polish Emergency cuz the March Polish Pickup is coming y’all!  Annnnd, YOU GUYS … We got us a good one.  This month’s theme is Books and I am the happiest of all things happy.  Books, gloriously smiling-to-myself-like-an-idiot BOOKS.  My first love, my best friend, the whole reason it takes me three hours to drink one tiny wine cooler.  Cuz while all the cooler kids went to parties, I read books like it was my dadgum job and quite honestly – I got the better end of the deal.  I mean, the fact I have no idea how to sip a shot of Jagermeister without holding my pinky up like a fancy lady is beside the freaking point. 


Polish Pickup February 2018: Sugar Rush



Time for everyone’s favorite Polish Emergency cuz the February Polish Pickup is coming y’all!  I’m doing things a little different this month as I haven’t had much free time for swatching and blogging like normal (or even lounging about on couches, which is quite possibly the lamest thing ever written).  Work has been very needy lately, what with all the people wanting their tax forms prepared in a timely manner (i.e., most ideal scenario) as opposed to the feet up, desk napping, procrasinating thing I’d rather do.   Ugh.  Fiiiine.  But I swear, if bonus points aren’t headed my way after this .. welllll .. where is Leonardo DiCaprio when you need him?  (SERIOUSLY, WHERE IS HE?)


Lollipop Posse Lacquer: Polish Pickup January 2018



A quick blog for you tonight, so we’re gonna jump right in with some things.  The Polish Pickup is inching ever so close, and I am determined to get all these blogs done BEFORE the sale starts (as in, ideal scenario).  So even though I’m just tossing out pictures and not saying words, pretending like I ain’t a huge drool-y mess and this is all NO BIG DEAL, let me assure you:  it’s basically the BIGGEST big deal that you ever did see and I’ve got a thousand drool buckets here to prove it.  But since we don’t have 18 years to just hang out in here reading things today, it’s onto the polish sans-fanfare we go. Weeee!


Lollipop Posse Lacquer: Midwinter Midnights Collection and the Really Effing Brutal Trio


Black Friday is only four days away and guess who still has roughly 2,957 blogs left to write?  GAH!  After that decades-long post I did on the Indie Brand Collective sale, I accidentally took a one-day blog break and simultaneously gave myself about 17 Polish Emergencies. Well GREAT.  So looks like no sleep for me until the year 2037.  Cuz although the fitness app only has 252 steps on it, I guarantee the sweat bead mustache via a speed blogging frenzy will be at an all-time high.  I swear, if I’m not skinny after this, someone gets a karate chop.  SCIENCE, that means YOU.

Let’s focus, shall we?  Nail polish is happening and you’re first in line.  I’ve got new goodies from Karen with Lollipop Posse Lacquer to share with you today!  Get ready for a dire case of the Grabby Fingers, but try to stay a lady about it at least.


Just kidding.  Ladylike composure = officially out the dadgum window.

This is the Midwinter Midnights collection, a set of 5 sultry, sexy shades that you’re gonna need like a billion times over. Karen says each polish is inspired by a song that brings to mind frosty winter nights, which quite honestly is the only way I take my winter:  in nail polish form, possibly with some flakies on it.  All other forms – brown grass, snow covered in dirty tire tracks, leaving the house in a thousand pounds of sad, unattractive clothing – can not-so-kindly have a seat in the back.  Oh Winter, my evil friend.

But yeah.  These polishes.  They make winter look like not such a bad idea after all.  I mean, maybe by just half a point, but I’ll take 18,000 bottles anyway.  You know, FOR SAFETY.  Here’s your rundown interspersed with Karen’s music inspiration.  We’re about to set a mood, just so you know.


DESCRIPTION:  A metallic silver base packed with red to purple shifting shimmer, silver holographic pigment, flakies and microglitter and red to purple shifting chameleon chrome flakies

OPACITY:  Three coats for me

Roll the windows down / This cool night air is curious / Let the whole world look in / Who cares who sees anything

— Defttones ft. Maynard James Keenan, Passenger


DESCRIPTION:  A green/brown/gold holographic multichrome with sparkling taupe micro flakies

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

So pure / So rare / To witness such an earthly goddess / That I’ve lost my self control / Beyond compelled / To throw this dollar down / Before your holiest of altars

— A Perfect Circle, Magdalena


DESCRIPTION:  A darkened, juicy raspberry magenta holographic creme packed with teal shimmer

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

Venomous voice tempts me / Drains me / Bleeds me / Leaves me cracked and empty / Drags me down like some sweet gravity

— Tool, H


DESCRIPTION:  A dark blue/purple multichrome shifter packed with scattered holographic particles and a smattering of sapphire/purple/red shifting chameleon chrome flakies

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

I come along but I don’t know where you’re taking me / I shouldn’t go but you’re wrenching dragging shaking me / Turn off the sun pull the stars from the sky / The more I give to you the more I die

— Nine Inch Nails, The Perfect Drug


DESCRIPTION:  A rusty red/brown/gold multichrome shifter packed with holographic pigment

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

You move like I want to / To see like your eyes do / We are downstairs / Where no one can see / New life break away / Tonight I feel like more

— Deftones, Digital Bath

For real, y’all.  This collection has left me speechless.  First things first, formulas were perfection.  No issues of any kind, and for that fact alone, we lub them lots.  But those flakies!  DEAD.  That spectacular shiftiness!  MORE DEAD.  All five of these beauties is one very good example why we’ve all got a nail polish problem.  Karen has voodoo’ed everyone.  She done did.

Prices are $11 each except for Some Sweet Gravity – she retails for $10.

In addition to all that business up there, Karen has brought back a Black Friday tradition – the single pours!  These next three shades are ultra exclusive and even more ultra drool-y.  Each color has been mixed and poured one time only, and once they are gone they are gone for good.  AAACK!  Time to panic, in case you didn’t know.

Inspired by the show Metalocalypse from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, each of these polishes were named and themed by Mr. Lollipop himself.   Take a look at what else you’re buying:

Ooooooh!  More sexy!  More sultry!  More swoon-y scenarios!  This is the Really Effing Brutal Trio, three vampy shades for when you want to feel less sweatpants-y but also still be in sweatpants, which is all we ever want out of life anyway.  Although, maybe with some mashed potatoes on top.  I dunno.


DESCRIPTION:  A magenta-leaning crimson packed with blue shimmer and holo sparks

OPACITY:  Two coats, even though one coat covered really well


DESCRIPTION:  A blue/teal/purple multichrome holographic with purple microflakies

OPACITY:  Three coats for me


DESCRIPTION:  A dark grey with touch of steel blue, gold shimmer and blue and purple sparks and microflakies

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

Formulas on these three were consistently good once again, cuz I swear Karen’s got this nail polish thing on LOCK.  Pricing for each is $10, which might as well be free considering how much we’re buying.


Welp. Toss ’em all in the shopping cart. There is no other way.  Cuz getting out of this blog without a crap ton of nail polish?  WRONG times LAME divided by BRAIN MALFUCTION. In other words, God is watching.  Good decisioning is in order, or else.  The deets:

Both of these collections release on Thanksgiving night, November 23 at 11pm EST.  Remember, the single pours are extremely limited edition so don’t go waiting til 11pm and 1 second like a crazy person.  First in line, as previously decided.

More Black Friday deals:

* Full website restock

* Full bubble bar restock

* $4 clearance bath scoops

* $5 and $7 polish

* FREE full-sized Pixie Puke polish with any $40+ purchase before shipping!  Pixie Puke is a hot pink/magenta crelly packed with holographic sparkle and silver/pink/purple glitters.  You need!  Cuz we love free stuff, oh yes we do.

The Black Friday sale ends on Monday, November 27 at 11:59pm EST so plan accordingly.  The Midwinter Midnights collection will still be available to order after the sale; however, why delay happiness?  All of it, IMMEDIATELY.  Cuz I am the boss of you, that’s why.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer: Polish Pickup November 2017


Day 17 of not being a super model, and I don’t know whose bright idea this was but it’s some kinda RUDE shenanigans if you ask me.  Cuz I somehow managed to eat only one piece of Halloween candy last night before bed and then effectively gained .2 pounds this morning.  Why, Universe, whyyyyyy?  So here I sit drinking a DIET FREAKING STARBUCKS, and officially I am the saddest of all things sad.  And science … well, SCIENCE wins again.  Booooo.

Back to the Polish Pickup today!  There’s a drool-y EXTRAVAGANZA! happening in about 2.5 seconds and you’re gonna want a front row seat for this one.  Take a look at what Karen with Lollipop Posse Lacquer made for us:


Welp, I don’t hate that one bit. Just the lovliest thing you’ve ever seen, prolly.  Cuz you just don’t toss in an explosion of flakie goodness and expect anything normal to happen next.  1000 drool buckets?  YEP.  That sounds about right.

As previously mentioned, this month’s theme is Fandoms. Karen was inspired by Chihiro/Sen and Haku from the movie, Spirited Away.  Check out the inspo pic:

Ummmm, basically NAILED IT doesn’t even begin to describe this scenario. That picture, this polish.  TWINS.  Karen is a freaking magician, I swear it. 

Spirit of the Kohaku River is the embodiment of Haku’s true form in a nail polish bottle. At the end of the film, Chihiro helps Haku remember that, before Yubaba took his name, he was the spirit of the Kohaku River. 

— Karen, GENIUS polish maker and all-around good gal, Lollipop Posse Lacquer 

Who is Haku?  Who is Yubaba?  Cuz I’ve never seen this movie, which isn’t all that surprising considering how much Leonardo isn’t in it.  Seriously, I should watch more movies, you know, so y’all don’t think I’ve been living in some kind of Gilbert Grape fantasy world. (Although clearly, I HAVE. Duh.) 


DESCRIPTION:  A blue crelly with a green/blue duochrome shimmer, scattered holographic pigment and a smattering of pink/gold/bronze/green multichrome flakies

OPACITY:  Three thin coats but could’ve done a billion

STINKIN DREAMY. I want like 18,000 bottles. That’s not even a typo. Just toss ’em all in the shopping cart, stat. Cuz now is not the time for rational behavior.

Formula was nice; application was smooth and trouble-free.  No gloop!  Which is basically all we ever want in a polish anyway.  Well, that plus a basketful of kitties.  But after that, not much else.

Let’s seal this deal!

DONE. In the cart she goes! Weeee!

I typed it all out in my last post, but no one’s in the mood now for a skosh of 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, November 3 at 11am EST and will stay open all the way thru Monday, November 6. Cost varies between makers, but Spirit of the Kohaku River will retail for $12.  Shipping is a flat $3, which is just one more reason to love everything about this scenario.

Where to buy:  http://www.polishpickup.com

This particular polish is capped at an undisclosed amount, although Karen says it’s very generous.  However, cuz we don’t take risks when it comes to nail polish, getting in line first seems like the most ideal.  What are you doing at 11am and 2.5 seconds?  Spending some dadgum money, that’s what.  Lollipop up top!

Don’t forget: to get connected with future sales and to participate in the nomination and voting of themes, join the Polish Pickup group on Facebook. Click here!

Okay, that’s it for this one. Four more polishes to go and two days left before the sale.  While I figure out the math, you’re setting alarms and putting Post-It Notes everywhere.  Cuz that’s how this thing works.

Later, loves!


Lollipop Posse Lacquer: The Magicians Trio


I’ve been writing this blog for about five hours now and my brain has officially gone away somewhere.  GUYS.  This is what happens when they take the potato chips away.  Time no longer exists; normal function = GONE.  And surprisingly skinny STILL takes its damn sweet time.  I’ve been expecting SUPER MODEL! since about Diet: Day Two but something has clearly gone terribly awry.  I mean, I just ate a salad with just some lemon squeezed on it, i.e., the worst kind of ranch dressing that ever freaking existed, so if this weight thing can move the hell on out now, that’d be great.

While we wait (albeit crankily and impatiently), let’s look at pretty things.  Karen with Lollipop Posse Lacaquer sent me yummies!  Take a look at these drool-y little scenarios:


YEP.  At least 1000 buckets for this one!

This is the Magicians Trio, a set of three gloriously shifty, shimmering dreamboats that you’re gonna need like 18,000 times over. They’re sexy.  They’re vampy.  They’re magical perfection in a bottle.  And they’re all headed for the shopping cart, just so you know.

Inspired by the tv show, The Magicians, Karen does what she does best:  sets a mood, tells a story, brings fantasy TO FREAKING LIFE.  For real, y’all, if you don’t own any Lollipop polishes, welllll … you’ve got a crap ton of catching up to do.  Have your billion dollars handy!  But at least start with these three.

Here’s your color rundown, otherwise known as a prelude to the Noodle Leg Epidemic that is happening next.  Get ready for the swoons!


DESCRIPTION:  A teal crelly with a red to green shifting shimmer and scattered holographic sparkle

OPACITY:  Two easy coats

The shimmer in here is similar to Unicorn Pee, and it looks absolutely breathtaking against the dark base.  My jaw might’ve dropped a little. And then some drool came out.  Seriously, I’m quite the catch in case you’re curious.

Look down.  You’re on the garden path.  Stay on, the Beast will kill you, kill everyone.  Step off the path, or …

— Jane Chatwin, The Magicians, Season 01, Episode 01: Unauthorized Magic


DESCRIPTION:  An inky blue crelly with a red to green shifting shimmer and scattered holographic sparkle

OPACITY:  Another two coater

More of that Unicorn Pee-dupe goodness and just like that, ladylike composure = out the dadgum window.  I’m hardcore in love with this color!  Glowy blue polishes always get me good.  But then you toss in a bunch of shimmery, shifty yummy deliciousness, and for real you guys, I may never be the same again.

You’re not as good as I’d hoped.  But you’re better than you know.

— Alice Quinn, The Magicians, Season 01, Episode 13: Have You Brought Me Little Cakes


DESCRIPTION:  A blackened purple crelly with purple to red shifting shimmer and scattered holographic sparkles

OPACITY:  Two coats once again; I sense an epidemic

Ummmmm, purple lovers, you seeing this?!  How freaking gorgeous is she?  (Very.)  Seriously, if you aren’t properly convinced by how much you’re buying this trio, well CLEARLY you are wrong.  But just in case you’re still on the fence, enjoy these last three pictures.  Cuz the fence is no place for a lady, that’s why.

Fillory and Further is a series of five novels written by fictional author, Christopher Plover, found in the novel and television series, The Magicians, by real-life author, Lev Grossman.  Series character Quinten Coldwater obsesses over the books and is shocked to discover just how real the world of Fillory is after he is admitted to the magical college of Brakebills.

This trio previously released last month (or so), but it’s up for it’s final restock before it disappears FOREVER.  Erlack!  Panic!  Anxiety!  Sweat bead mustaches for no dadgum good reason!  The level of unattractive that is happening over here is at an all-time high.  Cue the hives cream!

Your shopping deets:

Pre-order starts Wednesday, November 1 at 7pm EST and will run until November 8.  Each polish retails for $12 each, but happiness is FREE and that’s all that matters.

Turn around time for shipping is about three weeks.  Or an eternity.  When it comes to nail polish, anything longer than instantly is basically a lifetime of waiting.

Where to buy:  http://www.lollipopposselacquer.bigcartel.com/

In addition to this trio, Karen is also restocking I Remember When I Lost My Mind, One Hundred and Eleven Fish, Telephone Ice Cream, We’re Gonna Serve and Lock the Doors Tight.  Don’t worry about the lack of swatch pictures on those; just toss ’em all in the cart with your eyes closed.  Cuz no one does Crazy Nail Lady quite like you.

And now, the linky loos. Connect with LPL, stat:
