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!

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

Do you remember the gorgeous pinky purple polish from Fair Maiden I showed you last week? If not – go check it out! It’s beautiful! Today I am sharing the other Fair Maiden I purchased at the same time. For now I just have these two, but considering how lovely they both are, I’ll have to keep a close eye on the brand!

Swatches and a GIVEAWAY! Supermoon Lacquer The Chosen Collection

The polishes used in this post include both press samples and items purchased at a blogger discount.

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to share today’s post with you. Not only am I going to share seven beautiful new polishes from The Howling Boutique’s Supermoon Lacquer with you, but there is also a giveaway at the end! You will be able to win your choice of two of these beauties – this post is picture heavy but be sure to make it through to the end for the giveaway!

Supermoon Lacquer is a relatively new brand, but one that has already caught my eye – you may have noticed me using one of their polishes as the base for my water drops nail art a couple of weeks ago. Of course, I jumped at the chance to swatch their new, gloriously darker collection, filled with shimmer and shift. This is Supermoon’s third full collection and it may just be their best yet!

31DC2016 Day 30: Water Drops Inspired by a Tutorial

Hi everyone!

It’s the second last day of the 31 Day Challenge! I’ve actually already done my nails for tomorrow so I’m officially finished and these were the last nails I did. Today’s theme is inspired by a tutorial. You probably know by now that I enjoy recreating other nail art looks I love, but not everyone does tutorials. I had to search a little to find a tutorial that fit my freehand criteria for the challenge. In the end I picked a water drops tutorial by Starrynail. This is the second look by her I’ve recreated this challenge (the first was my Game of Thrones look) – she just does such amazing freehand art!
