Stella Chroma: Multichrome Madness Group Custom Duo 


It’s the never ending quest to get caught up, PART ONE BILLION.  Ugh.  I swear, I see the drafts queue and about 7,345 partially written blogs staring back at me, but then I’m like FULL HOUSE IS ON! and so it’s down a rabbit-hole I go.  At some point, game notifications light up and it’s time to save some baby pandas from their little bubble cocoons – and that doesn’t just happen all by itself.    Feet up on the coffee table, wearing an enormous amount of robe, with one eye sleeping because CLEARLY:  responsibilities are for other people.

But now we’re in dire straights and I gotta get my focus face on.  Cuz guys, there’s a POLISH EMERGENCY in our midst.  A legit no joke crisis-a-mundo, topped with panic and anxiety and a full tube of hives cream.  In other words, pa y at te..n

Ack!  Chips Ahoy just appeared out of nowhere.  BRB.


Someone just needs to keep the TV off and the snacks away.  Except don’t, or I will cut you.

Multichromes are happening, y’all!  Miss Pam from Stella Chroma is in the spotlight for July, and she has created a most awesome custom duo exclusively for the members of the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook.  Who’s ready to spend some money today?  Damn near all of us, that’s who.  Lesss go!

First up is Amortentia:

This beauty is a re-release of the very first Multichrome Madness exclusive back when Stella Chroma used to be Paint Box Polish.  She’s come back to life, guys, and for that we all say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.  Now send Leonardo, kthxbai.  

For those that don’t already have the original Amortentia, it is a glorious pink/yellow/green/gold shifty stunner.  There could be a bit of a blue shift at super extreme angles, but that sounds like hand gymnastics to the trillionth degree, aka EXERCISE, aka LAME.  So enjoy my blue-less swatch photos, cuz BEST BLOGGER EVER, that’s why.

Gah!  So pretty.  The pink pulls you in, then the green makes you stay.  We are all just puddles of goo at this point.

The other half of the duo is Draught of Peace:

This one is a blue/purple/red/gold multichrome with the most amazing teal shift of your life!  It seriously just glows and glows and glows.  This one’s getting shoved up in stranger’s faces, I just know it.  Possibly in a slightly more stalker-y kind of way, as strangers don’t wanna Look at mah nails! quite like you’d expect.  I mean, I get it.  Cuz if anyone comes running up to me with their jazz hands on, one of them better be handing me a Starbucks.  OR ELSE.

Can we ever just look at this one time WITHOUT the hassle of the drool and the buckets and the Ugly Ecstasy Face and whatnot?  Cuz hubby is starting to feel sad about this pile of noodle legs he’s married to.  I mean, the traditional 5th anniversary gift is WOOD and I swear if I get cheated out of my popsicle stick Titanic and little toothpick Leonardo, someone’s getting a karate chop.  

The round up:

Yep.  You’re buying it.  A decision has been made.  Both polishes in this duo are delicious two-coat dreamboats, and I see no logical other way.  Okay, maybe you don’t like pretty things.  Or maybe you have no eyes.  I dunno.  But after that, nothing.  27 bottles, in the cart they go!

To order, you gotta be a member of the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook.  Click here to join, then head over to the Stella Chroma store by clicking here.  This duo is only available until July 31, so if you can’t go now – although WHY NOT?! is the actual question – be sure to set some alarms so you don’t miss out.  Cuz who wants to wake up August 1st so very sad and duo-less? CERTAINLY NOT YOU.

Single bottles retail for $13

Duo retails for $24

Happiness is PRICELESS.

Short and sweet tonight, although it still took 18 years to write.  Ugh.  One day I’ll get really good at this, I swear it.

Later, loves!


Ellagee: Multichrome Madness Group Custom Duo


I sat in someone’s pee today, so things are going quite well over here in case you’re curious.


I don’t know about you, but once the momentum of sitting down kicks in, stopping mid-sit is nigh on impossible.  Two drops just hanging out on the edge of the toilet like NO BIG DEAL, you see it roughly 2 seconds too late, and suddenly WE. ARE. ON IT.  Right on top of it.  And all the cootie-slash-flesh eating bacteria scenarios are running through your brain like a dadgum freight train.  Quite honestly, I might die soon considering all the self-diagnosing I’ve been doing for the past 12 hours.  Oh, Anxiety, my evil friend.  Ugh.

In other words, happy weekend, y’all!  Despite that pee thing, there’s nonstop pajamas for the next 72 hours and LIFE IS GOOOOOOOD.  Weeeee!  Plus multichromes are happening, which is an instant great day about 97.74658% of the time.  Miss Laura from Ellagee has created a gorgeous custom duo for the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook, and you might as well just check your jaw at the door cuz picking it up off the floor 18,000 times is just too much effort for a Friday.


See?!  For real, these colors are making me feel some type of way.  Mmmmmm, I swear if Leonardo happens next, it would only make sense.  Cuz why hold onto your last thread of ladylike composure when you know damn well the drool buckets are already lurking?  And normal behavior is a thing for other people.

OMG, what just happened?  Shut up, Brain.

First half of the duo is Fireside Wine:

This one has a glamorous magenta multichrome base with a copper/red/fuchsia/violet shift and bright pink sparkle.  IT IS GLORIOUS.  Two ultra smooth coats, and it’s a Noodle Leg Epidemic for all of us.

Another angle, which I swore looked completely different from the first picture, but in reality it’s most definitely different by at least 17 millimeters.  You know, VASTLY DIFFERENT is what I mean.

She’s a hot little mama!  I absolutely love how it looks on my nails.  Anytime a polish can make my fingers look less sad and sausage-y, I’m tossing 27 bottles in the shopping cart.  And we just don’t argue with that kind of logic.

Macros, for extra drool factor:

Gah!  So pretty.

The other half of the duo is Rhapsody in Blue:

This one has a luscious royal blue multichrome base with an emerald/blue/teal/purple shift and bright turquoise sparkle.  Seriously, we’re beyond ridiculous now.  It’s a mouth gaping, tongue lolling, puddle of goo EXTRAVAGANZA! and hubby just needs to look the other way for a little bit.  Cuz the Ugly Ecstasy Face causes divorce if I’m not mistaken.

Angle #2, a bit of lower light for more shifty goodness:

Two coats of dreamboat and an ocean of lovely.  Aaaaahhhh!  You’re about to spend some money, I just know it.

Let’s seal this deal:

DONE. Dead.  We are past the point of smelling salts, let’s just say.

The round up:

Soooooo, you’re buying both of these, just FYI.  Here’s what you need to do:

1. Join the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook to get access to secret shop link and coupon code.  Click herestat.  There’s a post in the group from Laura giving you all the info you need.   

2. If you’re unable to shop today – although WHY?! is the actual question – you have until June 30 to snag these beauties.  After that, they are gone forever.  I mean, it’s basically a POLISH EMERGENCY of the trillionth degree.

Cost for the duo is $25 or you can get single bottles for $13.  But reveling in all your good decisioning?  PRICELESS.

Top Shelf Lacquer: A Multichrome EXTRAVAGANZA!


Well guess who’s behind again?  Ugh.  Things were going so smoothly, too.  I mean, the effort on display was Blogger, Level EXPERT to say the least.  Then I sat down on the couch and my brain done went away somewhere.  Someone turned Full House on, and SUDDENLY! responsibilities are for other people.

I don’t even know what it is about that dang show.  It’s on in the background while I am swatching and blogging – it’s become my routine at this point – but then Uncle Jesse breaks both arms and tries to feed himself cereal with a ginormous wooden spoon and officially I. AM. DONE.  Whatever else I had to do that day:  deleted AND cancelled.

Seriously, if you feel like wasting an extraordinary amount of time, I have pointers.  If I can put this much enthusiasm into other, more interesting things, I might be President of the Universe by now.  Pajamas for everyone!

But now we’re back on track, so everyone get your focus face on.  I received a huge haul of polish from my girl Amy with Top Shelf Lacquer, and if you’re into multichromes, holo or pretty things in general, you’re about to have your best day ever.  Get ready to spend some money, yo.  Justification starts now.


Amy sent over three of her gorgeous multichrome quads, and opening the box was like a choir of angels singing.  If Leonardo popped out next, we’d all be like YUP, sounds about right.  Cuz this is some good stuff, man.  Amy’s multichromes are a one way ticket to the Drool Convention, at the minimum.

Let’s start with the Fun Bar Quotes – Holo’d quad.  I’ll give you the rundown of the colors, then I’ll meet you at the bottom (or else we’ll be in this blog for the next 18 years).  First up is Bad Decisions Make Good Stories – Holo’d:

This one is a red jelly base with a yellow to pink, orange, red, copper and green shift with a linear holographic finish.  I’m trying hard not to chat, but it’s already sweaty in here.  Gah!

Macro time!

You want this, oh yes you do.

Next up is Take Me Drunk, I’m Home – Holo’d:

This one is a super sparkly almost glittery shifter that goes from aqua blue to purple to red with flashes of copper and green in a purple jelly base with a linear holographic finish.  Two coats of dreamboat!  Photographing all the shifts in a multichrome is hard, but hopefully I’ve done them justice.  An attempt was made, so that deserves at least half of toot on the ole horn, pretty sure.

Also, macro skills aren’t too shabby.  Is an award coming, or … ?

Now we have Drinks Well With Others – Holo’d:

This one is also a super sparkly almost glittery shifter that has the most dramatic shift from green to blue and purple with flashes of red and copper in a slightly tinted jelly base with a linear holographic finish.  This one is soooooo much more stunning in person; it is LEGIT a shifty queen.  Might be my favorite.  Might end up on all the surfaces.  Mine AND yours.

Macro, a prelude to the 27 bottles you’re buying:

If we make it to the end of this blog it’ll be a damn near miracle.  Cuz not much gets done when you’re busy dying every 15 seconds.

Lastly, here’s Why Limit Happy to an Hour? – Holo’d:

Another super sparkly almost glittery shifter that goes from red to blue to purple with flashes of copper and green in a purple jelly base with a linear holographic finish.  At first, this one looks somewhat similar to Take Me Drunk, I’m Home but then you realize it’s a different toned purple.  I’d show you a comparison, but I don’t plan things very well.  I am a DADGUM PROFESSIONAL, clearly.

Macro, to aid the convincing:

You’re buying these, but then again, you already know.  

Next collection to show off is the Cocktail Fun quad.  Check out these straight multichrome masterpieces:

Remember back in April when I swatched the Multichrome Madness group customs, and they were four of the most spectacular things you’ve ever seen?  Well, these are those same customs but without the cute square glitters.  And I tell you what:  I stinkin’ LOOOOOOOVE them.  Plain multichromes?  Heart eyes times a billion.

First up is Schnapp To It:

This one shifts between green, blue and purple with an occasional flash of red in a tinted jelly base, and basically I’ve just lost all control of my body.  Bad case of the noodle legs plus the brain’s stop holding my mouth closed.  OMG, am I still married?  I don’t even know.

Grab the smelling salts!  Now scroll.

Mercy.  Words have officially left me.  It’s moan-y throat noises from here on out.

Next up is Now Watch Me Sip … My Chardon Nay Nay:

This one shifts between pink, orange, gold, and green in a tinted jelly base.  Isn’t this just the most beautiful burst of color?  Amy is a magician, I’m almost certain.

An insane display of pretty:

Seriously though.  The noodle legs.

Now here’s Tequila Mockingbird:

This beauty shifts from blue to purple to reddish in a tinted jelly base.  All you blue lovers, this one is calling for you.  Most likely in a French accent and handing you a Starbucks.  

Brace yourself:

Are you still upright?  Nope.  Me neither.

Lastly, here’s Help Me Straighten Mai Tai:

This one shifts from purple to red to bronze in a tinted jelly base.  Such a rich and glorious jewel tone!  The shift in this one is slightly more subtle than the rest, but then again I sprained my foot by stretching too hard on the couch, so I tend to do things in a VERY WRONG kind of way.

Macro, to seal the deal:

The last collection I have is the Cocktail Fun quad again, but this time with holo:

GUYS.  More polish you’re buying!  Cuz turning your back on all this magic is not an option.

First up is Schnapp To It – Holo’d:

This one shifts between green, blue and purple with an occasional flash of red in a tinted jelly base with a linear holographic finish.  If you’re sticking your fingers in stranger’s faces soon, no one’s surprised.  Cuz why act normal at a time like this?

Close up of those goodies:

Holo holo everywhere, and in the cart she goes!

Next we have Now Watch Me Sip … My Chardon Nay Nay – Holo’d:

This one shifts between pink, orange, gold, and green in a tinted jelly base with a linear holographic finish.  So freaking yummy!  I won’t lie: I kinda wanna eat this one.  But I won’t, cuz SOCIETY.  The judgy eyes are everywhere.  

Lolling tongues ahead!

Dang.  What is the point in life if you can’t lick some polish every once in a while?  I ask you, WHAT IS THE POINT?

Next up is Tequila Mockingbird – Holo’d:

This beauty shifts from blue to purple to reddish in a tinted jelly base with a linear holographic finish.  For me, the holo hid the shift a little bit so I think I prefer the straight multichrome version of this one.  HOWEVER, I continue eating whole bags of Funyuns (in a room by myself), so my opinion might be moot.  You decide for yourself, lovies.  I’m just gonna go sit back down now.

Still dreamy no matter what.

Lastly here’s Help Me Straighten Mai Tai – Holo’d:

This one shifts from purple to red to bronze in a tinted jelly base with a linear holographic finish, and if you’re thinking I must be an unattractive mess by now, YOU ARE CORRECT.  There’s only so much sexy to go around while holding a drool bucket.  Hubby just needs to look away for a minute so we can stay married longer.  I mean, the traditional 5th anniversary gift is WOOD, so pretty sure he’s about to build me a boat with his bare hands straight from a Nicholas Sparks novel – and hell if I’m missing out on that.  Although a popsicle stick rendering of the Titanic with a little toothpick Leonardo on top would be just fine too.

OMG, what?  Shut up, Brain.

The round up:

Each of these collections come in either 15ml full size or 8ml polish shots. Full quads retail for $44 (15ml) or $32 (8ml) and single bottles are $12 (15ml) or $8.50 (8ml).  Although which one of you is just buying one single bottle?  Damn near no one, that’s who.

And the best news?  It’s all available now.  Click here for shopping, then stalk your mailman like a proper loon.  What other choice do you have at this point?

Also, I’m serious about toothpick Leonardo.  I told hubby, and he laughed.  BUT HE IS WRONG.  So very very wrong.

Later, loves!
