Supernatural Lacquer - Mystery Prototype Review

So this is a way-back polish, from around Black Friday 2016 (if I remember correctly) and I'm finally getting around to it - I know. Mystery prototypes are as the name explains, you don't know what you're getting until it comes in and these are typically polishes that can't be recreated for whatever reason. I did mention that this one would be amazing if it could be duped, just because it's super pretty!



This Mystery Prototype is a deep purple jelly base with small and tiny blue glitters.

Cupcake Polish - Cheers! Review

I'm back, y'all, and it's for good. Getting ready for a trip to Europe and then doing the trip took me way off schedule, but I'm back to blogging regularly - promise!
