Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Polish Pickup Holidays Around the World December 2017 Swatches and Review

It's that time of month again! Polish Pickup is back with the December 2017 theme Holidays Around the World. This is a pop-up shop that opens for pre-orders of indie polish and products on a theme every month. This time it is open December 1 at 11AM EST to December 4 at 11:59PM EST.  Today I have Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer's polish, which pays tribute to the Obon Festival in Japan! The Obon Festival is a Buddist festival for honoring your ancestors, which is a common time to have reunions. Lanterns and the Bon Odori dance are features of the celebration. When I lived in Japan I took part in one of these festivals and learned the Bon Odori!

Monthly Awareness Polish Box December 2017 Missing Children Swatches and Review

I'm super-excited to be a guest blogger for the Monthly Awareness Polish Box for December 2017! This box supports a different charity every month and is hosted by Courtney of Swatch Me Go, Lindsay of Night Owl Lacquer, Virginia of Pretty Beautiful Unlimited, and Angie of Sassy Pants Polish. The guest contributors this month are L. J. of All Mixed Up Lacquers, Crystal of PoSHlish, and Issa of Starlight and Sparkles. This month, proceeds will go to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. I always love a good charitable excuse to buy polish and have bought from most months of the Monthly Awareness Polish Box so far. A nice aspect of this box is that you can buy all six for $52, pick four for $40, or purchase individual polishes for $11 each. It's nice to be able to chip in as you are able to! Let's have a look...

MDJ Creations Swatches and Review

How have your weekends been? I'm not ready for mine to be over! It was so nice to have four days off in a row. Things are calming down sale-wise but luckily a few brands are still running amazing specials. MDJ Creations is one, offering an extended 30% off with code IBCFRIDAY until 11/30! I love that if things were too hectic this weekend that you wouldn't miss out on that one. I picked up a bunch of stuff for myself and have some to show you today, as well.
