Shimmer Me Box: March 2018 – Good Luck Charms & Symbols

Standard

• A PRESS SAMPLE FANDANGO •

Three blog posts, three days in a row.  Seriously, who’s writing this thing cuz it damn sure isn’t me.  NO, the real me is currently in the midst of some Olympic-style couch lounging (except not in a sexy way), enjoying a 2-year-old issue of US Weekly (at some point I’ll be caught up, I swear it; until then, however, Brad and Angelina are still together as far as I’m concerned) and being the best LAZY ME that you EVER did see.  Cuz responsibilities … wellll, that’s just a thing for OTHER people.

Shimmer Me Box: February 2018 – Chocolate Lover

Jumping straight into the polish tonight as this Polish Emergency thing we’ve got going on just NEVER freaking ends. One of these days I’ll be a proper blogger, I swear it. In my defense though, I’ve been practicing my lounging skillz and I’m quite certain there’s an Olympic-style awards type situation headed my way any day.  Cuz I just spent the past 3 hours browsing YouTube and somehow ended up watching a video on the tips and tricks of changing your colostomy bag.  And I don’t have a colostomy bag.  Soooo … ONE TRILLION BONUS POINTS!  I can think of no one else more deserving than ME.  Cuz when I tell you I lounge on couches except not in a sexy way, well clearly I freaking MEAN IT.

Shimmer Me Box: January 2018 – Winter Wonderland

New stuffs on the blog today!  First time reviewing the monthly Shimmer Me Box, and I swear I feel like a fancy lady.  I’m always grateful for new opportunities, and normally I’m pretty cool about it.  You know, calm and rational and able to be out in public.  But then you go tossing a bunch of SHIMMER in the mix and I can’t even pretend anything normal is happening right about now.  I’m a noodle leg-y mess and we haven’t even started yet.  If we make it to the end of this blog, it’ll be damn near miracle.  I’m sure the Shimmer Me peeps are sooooo glad they’ve asked me to blog for them today cuz my professionalism clearly is at an all-time high.

Tux Polish: Chrome Alone Collection 

Standard

Four hour concert.  An hour and a half away from home. On a work night. DO NOT RECOMMEND. Seriously, y’all, I’m more tired than any amount of late night swatching-slash-Full House marathon-ing could ever have me be. For real. Stupid words are most definitely coming out at some point. As one with a brain half asleep is wont to do.  I’m not saying there were 18,000 desk naps happening today, but I’m also NOT not saying it.  I’m a virtual HR darling, just so you know.

On with the speed blog (for real this time)! Received a most awesome swatch pack from Dominique with Tux Polish to share with you today.  Get ready for a flakie EXTRAVAGANZA! in 3 .. 2 .. 1 ..

• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •

Yes?  YES.  Some rich, vibrant colors for fall got me feeling some type of way.  I’m gonna need some smelling salts and someone to come hold my mouth shut, stat.  Lest the drool fall out and accidentally cause a divorce-type situation.  As happens from time to time.

This is the Chrome Alone collection, a set of 6 jewel-toned beauty queens, all inspired by the 90s holiday film, Home Alone.  You know that open-mouthed scream face little Kevin McCallister makes after he slaps aftershave on his cheeks for the first time?  This collection is that face times a billion.  AT MINIMUM.  Here’s all the proof you need.  Your color rundown:

YA FILTHY ANIMAL 

DESCRIPTION:  A pink/purple/yellow shifting holographic

Okay, so this one doesn’t technically have flakies in it, but it might as well have considering the 27 levels of SWOON that is happening right now.  Multichromes will get ya!  Each and every dadgum time.

CHROME ALONE 

DESCRIPTION:  A glitter topper filled with colorful chrome chameleon flakies

I did one swipe – ONE SWIPE! – over a black base and the flakie payout is LEGIT no joke.  And the below macros I took?  The most spectacular thing you’ve ever seen.  Saw.  You ever saw.  UGH.  One cannot grammar at a time like this.

And then a matte shot for funsies!  

I’M EATING JUNK AND WATCHING RUBBISH!

DESCRIPTION:  A pumpkin orange crelly with scattered holo, green shimmer and chameleon flakies

The name of this polish is basically the motto for my life.  I mean, hubby’s over here watching some documentary about astrophysics, making us all look bad, while my contribution to society is naming off the guys who’ve played the Bachelor on every season since 2002 and shoving Cheetos in my mouth like no big deal.  Well, not lately with the chips cuz I’ve somehow found myself on a diet I didn’t ask for.  Blah.  SCIENCE.

KEEP THE CHANGE 

DESCRIPTION:  A purple base with scattered holo, microglitter and shifty blue flakies

Ummmm, purple lovers, you seeing this?  All your polish dreams come true with this one.  You’re buying a bottle plus 18,000 backups for SAFETY.  Cuz an accidental painting of all the surfaces is coming, I just know it.  

HARRY LIME

DESCRIPTION:  A shimmery green holographic with green shifting chameleon flakies

Oooooh, we got a GREEN one!  Excuse me while I attempt to somehow remain a lady while my tongue is lolling about outside my body.  Nigh on impossible, pretty sure.

FLIGHT TO PARIS

DESCRIPTION:  A shifty blue/black jelly filled with holo and chameleon flakies

Let’s end this thing on a big ole exclamation point, shall we?  What a gorgeous deep ocean of lovely this one is.  Wanna go swimming?  I do.

THE ROUND UP 

Each polish had a really nice formula, a bit on the thinner side which I actually prefer.  The applicator is very long, so polish will drip down the wand and onto the brush (and into your cuticles) if you’re not paying attention.  It took me a minute to get used to but I’m pretty much an expert at this point.  Scroll up if you need a refresher.  Little works of art!  Although BETTER BE, cuz I paint nails for like 17 hours straight; clearly, I’m suuuuuper fun at parties.

NOW … Let’s buy some nail polish, shall we?  Here’s very important shopping deets:

Each polish retails for $10

This collection released just today, so BEST DAY EVER doesn’t even begin to describe this scenario.  It also marks the start of a 48 hour pajama fest, so things officially just got best-i-er.  Weekends = LIFE around here in case you’re new.

PLUS! There’s a coupon. Make a purchase from today through Sunday, November 19 at 11:59pm EST and you’ll get 10% off with code CHROMEALONE. Whyyyyy, that’s practically free!  Soooo, a billion bottles in the shopping cart then?  That sounds about right.
