Great Lakes Lacquer May 2024 Release Swatches and Review

Great Lakes Lacquer has a pre-order open for the new Let It Grow Collection, inspired by The Lorax, along with three polishes that are a tribute to Mariah's beloved mother, Jo, who passed away this spring. Two of those are new and one is a re-release of a small batch from 2022. The pre-order is open through June 3. The Let It Grow Collection will restock in July and at subsequent launches through Fall if you have to skip now, but the three special releases will not other than overpour, which tends to sell out fast. I meant to have my post and video up sooner but was working 12 hour days for two weeks straight in my day job, then promptly got sick on my last day of that stretch, then had my sewer back up into the basement the day after that. At least my nails were pretty! Let's check these beauties out.

Wildflower Lacquer Love for Moonflower Benefit for Nadia Polish Swatches and Review

Hi everyone! I've been on the longest break of my time posting nail swatches - basically half a year. Previously I never missed more than a couple weeks for 12 years posting nail pics online. I don't know that I will be back as frequently as I was due to work and my health, but I will try to stop by as much as I can. I am back with a polish that is really important for a long-time member of the nail polish hobby. Nadia, the blogger and vlogger behind Mama Hearts Polish and maker behind Moonflower Polish, a stamping polish brand, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She is the mom of two kids and is such a kind and generous person. She just had surgery recently, which was successful, but has a long recovery ahead of her. Her day job was as a dog groomer, but she is having to take time off because the recovery from mastectomy and reconstruction makes her physically demanding job impossible for awhile. Taylor of Wildflower Lacquer was so nice to add a polish to benefit Nadia in her May release. $8 of the $13.50 price will go directly to Nadia to help replace the income she has lost while recovering and to help with medical bills. Nadia's mom has also set up a gofundme which you can find here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-nadias-breast-cancer-journey-donate-today?qid=f0a46ea28b261f9bfed7f035849740a4 
*polish sent by maker, donation in excess of value made to Nadia's gofundme by me*

Wildflower Lacquer Wynne the Cat Tribute Nail Art

A little while ago Taylor from Wildflower Lacquer lost her cat Wynne. A group of folks got together to do some manis in tribute to her, and I did one, but just was not able to get the pics edited in time due to massive work overload and Bad Times. But I still wanted to share my tabby mani in Wynne’s honor, even if late. I used all Wildflower past releases.  Taylor has since adopted Dolly, an adorable kitten in honor of Wynne.

Polish Pickup Dreamscapes August 2023 Swatches and Review

For the first time since I started this blog in 2014, I missed posting for a month. This was a combination of one of the busiest work months of my career, health issues, and a flood in my basement. This month is shaping up to be hard, too, with our museum reopening and another death in the family, but I'll do my best! Polish Pickup Dreamscapes is still open for pre-order through midnight EDT today, August 7. I've got products from KBShimmer and Music City Beauty to show you.
