Tonic Polish - The Answer is 42 Review

It's that time again, time for one of Tonic Polish's ahhh-mazing nail polishes. This is from a Rainbow Connection duo from earlier this year..so I'm not sure if it'll come back or not. Make sure you check resell groups, you never know what will pop up there!
I did take a ton of extra swatches to show off all of the shifty-ness of this polish and those will be up on Instagram! There is so much of the shift and I didn't want to overload y'all here, so I thought I'd overload y'all on Instagram (and follow me while you're there!).



The Answer is 42 is a deep violet with teal-red shifting shimmer, a sprinkle of scattered holo, and fuchsia-gold-green shifting flakies.

BeautyCon Box - Winter Review

What is BeautyCon Box?: BeautyCon Box is a quarterly (March, June, September, and December) box with a guarantee of $100 of beauty, fashion, and skin care items. Each box is curated by someone (Influencer, Beauty Guru, etc). Boxes can also include exclusive items designed specifically for BeautyCon subscribers!

How much is BeautyCon Box?: BeautyCon Box is $29/quarter plus shipping. It is currently only available in the US but they are working on making it an international box so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I signed up for this subscription at Black Friday so I paid a lower rate. I'd suggest if you can wait, subscribing then so you can get the much lower cost!


Before finally subscribing, I definitely kept my eye on BeautyCon boxes for quite some time. I just knew that it was going to be excellent.

le Polish - Bad Neons Collection Review


Holy neon, guys, this collection's name is perfect. It's almost Summertime (although in Georgia it's almost always Summer) so of course, it's time for neons! Instead of your typical neons, though, this is the rebel neons, the Bad Neons! This collection releases tomorrow, Friday the 12th, at noon EST and will be available through the weekend! (There are also some re-releases as well so make sure you're in the Facebook Group to find out what else you can grab!)



I had a moment where I tried to do art. It might have worked.
