Supermoon Lacquer – Party Monarch

The polish in this post was provided for my honest review.

Hi everyone!

By now you’ve probably heard of Polish Pickup – I’ve shared a couple of swatches from previous Polish Pickup themes. If not, it’s a monthly group theme with an ever-increasing number of makers joining in to each create a single polish to fit the theme. December’s theme is ‘Holidays around the world’ and each maker interprets this and finds whatever inspiration they would like to create their polish. All of the polishes for the month are then available on the Polish Pickup site – this round’s polishes can be purchased from 1 December to 4 December. It’s a great way to get to try a variety of brands and all of the polishes that are being created are stunning! To make the whole process more interactive, you can also vote on what themes you would like to see in coming months. More details are available in the Polish Pickup Pack Facebook group.

Supermoon Lacquer | Ready to Launch Collection (Partial)

I purchased these products.

Hi everyone!

I have definitely mentioned a few times by now that The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer is one of my favourite nail polish brands. Today I have swatches to share with you of 5 polishes from their original Ready to Launch collection, which came out over a year ago now. Although one of these shades has already been retired, the other four are still available and will be restocked later this week for the brand’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale. In addition, all of these polishes will be 30% off for the sale! You can join the brand’s Facebook group for more details and announcements. For now, let’s take a look at the pretty polishes!

Supermoon Lacquer: The Hound of Hades

Hi everyone!

Have you heard about Polish Pickup yet? If you’ve been paying attention to my blog, you have – I swatched a couple of Northern Star Polish contributions to Polish Pickup in the past. This was an idea that was started a few months ago to get various polish makers together, each creating their own polish to fit a certain theme. Each month there is a new theme and all of the polishes created for that theme are available together on one site during a brief pre-order. It is a great way to try out a variety of brands!

I made my first Polish Pickup purchase during the month of October. The theme was Monsters & Mythical creatures and there were a couple of polishes I just couldn’t pass up! Today I have one of those I purchased to share with you – Supermoon Lacquer The Hound of Hades.

Swatches – Morgan Taylor Matadora Collection

The items in this post were provided for honest review from Morgan Taylor through Preen.me.

Hi everyone!

Today I have 6 gorgeous autumn polishes from Morgan Taylor to share with you. These six shades make up the Matadora collection, inspired by the culture of Spain. I have the regular polishes to show you, and these are also available in gel if you prefer that. I received the 6 polishes along with Morgan Taylor’s base and top coat, and two stamping plates – I’ll be showing you those in a later post!

In all of these swatches, I have combined the polishes from the Matadora collection with Morgan Taylor’s base and top coat, Stick With It and Need for Speed.

Maybelline The City Mini Palette Review & Make-up Look

Some items in this post were provided for review.

Hi everyone!

I have something different to share with you in this post, a lovely eyeshadow palette and makeup look! A while ago, I received the Maybelline City Mini Palette in 410 Chill Brunch Neutrals in a Voxbox from Influenster. I’m really liking this palette, so I decided to share it with you.

Crowstoes Huginn & Muninn Swatch

Hi everyone!

Are you familiar with Crowstoes Nail Color? If you are, you’ve probably seen pictures of some of their incredible multichromes, or perhaps you own some yourself! Not long ago, I was lucky enough to win a small giveaway in their Facebook fan group which basically amounted to enough store credit for one polish. I decided to try out one of those multichromes I’d been drooling over forever!

Swatch: Northern Star Polish Shark Bite

The polish shown in this post was provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

When I first moved to Minnesota I looked up which indie polish brands were local to Minnesota. I saw Northern Star Polish but to my disappointment, they were on hiatus at the time. I am happy to say that they’re back! They made their return a couple of months ago and have been participating in the monthly Polish Pickup initiative. I was over the moon when Kristin, the maker behind Northern Star, approached me about swatching this month’s polish. So, here is my first ever Northern Star polish – Shark Bite!

Swatches: Polish ‘M Words of Encouragement Collection (Partial)

Hi everyone!

Today I have swatches of a few polishes from Polish ‘M to share with you. These are all from the Words of Encouragement collection. When this collection first came out, all of the swatches looked incredible and I ended up purchasing 4 of the 6 polishes. Those are the four I have to show you today! Three out of these are still available, and the two I didn’t get are also still available, all priced at $9 each – so go browse through the Polish ‘M store!
