Fair Maiden Cosmic Confection | Polish Pickup Swatch

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe it’s already Monday! This weekend went by far too fast. There’s just not enough time to get everything done! I hope that you enjoyed my drip marble theme week last week, I had a lot of fun with it and now we are back to regular programming.

At least I can brighten this Monday a little with some swatches of a gorgeous polish. Today I am sharing my pictures of Fair Maiden Cosmic Confection, which is their contribution for February’s Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup has exploded onto the indie scene over the past few months with its creative way of offering polish and other products from a huge variety of makers, all in one store. Each month, makers create a polish inspired by a theme voted on by the group members. February’s theme is Sugar Rush. There are a lot of polishes available, so if you’re interested in seeing more, I recommend joining the Facebook Group!

Swatch – Supernatural Lacquer Como se Llama-corn?

Hi everyone!

Well, we’ve made it through the first day of 2018! Let’s hope the year just keeps on getting better 🙂 Today I have a swatch from a new-to-me brand, Supernatural Lacquer! I’ve been eyeing their polishes for a while, and finally decided to try my first one during October’s Polish Pickup. That’s something that I really enjoy about Polish Pickup – it enables you to try just one polish from a new brand without having to pay for shipping multiple times. I’m really glad I tried this one! Let’s take a look:

The Corundum Conundrum | Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

January’s Polish Pickup is rapidly approaching and today I have this month’s Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer polish to share with you. I’ve posted about Polish Pickup a couple of times before, but in case you’re not familiar with it yet, this is a monthly pop-up nail polish shop with a new theme each month. January’s theme is Crystals & Gemstones, and at this point dozens of makers are participating with their own themed polishes, cuticle oils, nail decals, etc. All of the products are available through a pre-order on the Polish Pickup site from 5-8 January, and you can join the Facebook Group for more swatches and updates on coming months.

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.
