Supernatural Lacquer - Descent from Heaven Review | Swatch My Stash

It's Indie Shop today, which means I'm writing this from the past and scheduling (like an adult). This is another old purchase from Supernatural Lacquer and it's a thermal, so beware, this is going to be a long post. I'm not sure if this has come back recently but I do know that this is one of my favorite thermals from SPNL! While I'm at The Indie Shop, you enjoy this post!

Here is Descent from Heaven.

Quixotic Polish - Lilac Chicks Review | Swatch My Stash

Hi, y'all! Happy Tuesday! This week I have an appointment with my eye doctor so I'm super happy, but then I have The Indie Shop this weekend so I'm actually happy about that! For today, I have a new-to-me brand that I've since bought a ton more polishes from the brand (and she's changed her bottle style so most of my bottles are different than what she has now). This brand keeps stock so there are polishes currently available for purchase!

Here is Lilac Chicks



Lilac Chicks is a soft periwinkle blue with pink shimmer and scattered holographic sparkles.

I know what you're thinking, this sounds dirty. The Naked Box actually just means it's naked from all scents. The box came with a code to get your own oil blend to make your products have whatever scent you want them to have!

Lollipop Posse Lacquer - The Fruit Was Bruised Review | Swatch My Stash

How is your week going? Mine is me being sick and hoping that I get to feel better so I don't have to go to the doctor. I'm still trying to do blogging things, but the sick does make me want to just curl up and watch SVU all day, every day. I'm going to just give up on being more personable and having a nice intro on this post and just say, look at this polish. It's not currently available but it's freaking stunning.

This Fruit Was Bruised? The Fruit Was Bruised? Honestly, I'm confused! The bottom of my bottle says this but some blogger reviews say the. Either way, it's a gorgeous polish.

This Fruit Was Bruised is a deep, bruised burgundy/purple linear holographic.

le Polish - Polish Con't Go Review | Swatch My Stash

Hey, y'all! The timing of this review is a bit perfect as the Road to Polish Con is currently going on for this year's Polish Con and this polish is from last year's RTPC! (Road to Polish Con is a weekly event where two brands have a polish for sale on the website that's available for one week, all leading up to Polish Con.) Polish Con is one of the polish events I haven't been able to go to because of the locale, so I was glad to see this addition for those like me!



Polish Con't Go is a milky chocolate brown with gold-to-copper flecks and a smattering of holographic.

Jior Couture - Euphotic Review | June 2017 Polish Pickup | Swatch My Stash

Hi, y'all! Happy Friday, hope your weekend plans are shaping up nicely! Mine include lunch with my parents (where I have to cook a lot, yikes) and then a lot of nothing...story of my life. I'm showing off a stunner I picked up last year, from Polish Pickup (of course). Let's just get to it, I don't have any more words to put here, sorry.

Here is Euphotic by Jior Couture!

BarkBox - June 2017 | Blog My Backlog


What is BarkBox?: BarkBox is a monthly subscription box for your favorite pupper. Each box includes five items, two toys, two bags of treats, and a chew. You tell them the size of your pupper and how you want to pay, and then you decide if you want to spend an extra $9/box for an extra toy! It's divided into three sizes, so Trumpet fits nicely in the middle category as 'Just Right.'

How Much is BarkBox?: If you want no commitments, cancel anytime, the box is $29/month. A three-month commitment brings it down to $25/month. Six months is $23/month (billed up-front as $138) and a one-year commitment is $20/month but you get to pay monthly! You get free shipping anywhere in the US and Canada, but there is sales tax applied to certain states. 


Why yes, I am using my dog to promote things. He's adorable, even with a runny nose and eye gunk.

Supernatural Lacquer - Virgins & Gold Review | Swatch My Stash

Happy Tuesday! It's getting ridiculously cold in Georgia and I'm actually hoping for no snow (does this mean I've reached a new level of adult?) so I figured a nice complex blue would be perfect for today! This is another from Supernatural Lacquer, which is opening for a preorder this weekend (3/9-3/11) so make sure you're in the group to get more details!

Here is Virgins & Gold.



Virgins & Gold is a blue-green jelly with rainbow shifting flakies and blue tiny flecks.
