Polish Con New Orleans, Road to Polish Con Group A, Part 2

Press Sample

I'm back with Part 2 of Group A of Road to Polish Con! You can see yesterday's post HERE with an additional 7 colors! So you'll have a chance to grab all 13 colors (there will even be a bundle option) on January 18th. Polish Con will be held on April 6, 2019 in Kenner, Louisiana. Each polish is inspired by New Orleans and its surroundings. It's such a fun concept! So check out the rest of this Group A and get ready to purchase them on the 18th!

Polish Con New Orleans, Road to Polish Con Group A, Part 1

Press Sample

Grab yourself a drink, a snack and something to write down all the polishes you will want in today and tomorrow's post. Polish Con will be in New Orleans April 6, 2019. Road to Polish Con took a little break and now it's back and better than ever.  Instead of one to two polishes each week, the attendees at Polish Con will be represented in two groups. Group A will be available from 1/19-2/3 and Group B will be 2/22-3/10.  Because the polishes are so dimensional, I've broken up Group A into two posts! These polishes are available to anyone, whether or not you can attend the Con!

I have to say, I love New Orleans, so the inspirations excite me! I went to Mardi Gras (actually, for an academic conference LOL) in 2011 and I love the city! I love the small city feel, the culture, and seriously would consider living there.

Beauty Big Bang Cat Dog Plate

Press Sample

I feel like I need to own all the cat stamping plates. They are just so ridiculous and that's my style. Gimme the kitties. So when I saw this plate on Beauty Big Bang, which also features adorable dogs, I was like mine. MINE MINE MINE.

Girly Bits Oh Baby Baby Trio, Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Pam of Girly Bits is expecting not one, but two grandbabies! One was actually born a few days ago, even though she was due yesterday (the release of this trio!). The other is due in February. How exciting?! To commemorate this event, she created a lovely trio of thermals. I love thermals but I feel like I'm never an even temperature. I'm either cold or hot, so natural transitions are difficult for me. Either way, I hope you appreciate my attempt to show these off!

Alter Ego January CoTM: Life's A Beach

Press Sample
 
Although it's been in the 40s here (which is warm for this time of year), I still dream of a getaway to a beach! That's the exact inspiration for Alter Ego's January CotM! She's always thinking outside of the box when it comes to inspirations. So while you are home in the cold, you can put on a warm polish to remind you summer isn't too far away!

Humboldt Soap Company: Cremeplexion Facial Moisturizer

Press Sample

I love to read a variety of beauty blogs to hear about new-to-me companies, new products, and so much more. I say I'm a beauty blogger, but this blog is 85% nails, and I really want to vary that up this year. I was reading Never Say Die Beauty and she posted about Cremeplexion, a facial moisturizer. I made a comment on the post (you can scroll down and see!) and the owner offered to send me a sample. WOW. When I e-mailed her and mentioned I would post the sample on my blog, she said she would send a full size. Talk about being proactive as an owner of a company! I don't think anyone has every offered me a free sample, no questions asked, based on a comment on a blog post. If this isn't telling you good things already, let's get to the product.

The start of January means a new Colours of the Month from Girly Bits. And since this are on sale during the Early Bird special through the 10th of January, I wanted to make sure you score this deal! While these colors may not scream January (actually, what colors DO scream January?!), I love this duo. They are rich, dimensional, and awesome.

Alter Ego Bath Bomb with Light

Press Sample

Listen, I've been sick for like two weeks. So when I found out IPU and PPU would be combined into one weekend, I swore I read it wasn't starting until February. WRONG. And for that, I dearly apologize to Cynthia of Alter Ego. BUT, you still have until tomorrow 1/7 to grab this! And Polish Pickup does combine shipping if you do multiple orders.

Zoya Winter Holo Trio, Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Zoya has released a trio for the winter and it's definitely giving me Valentine's Day vibes. You should grab this now for it! Gradient anyone?! Anyway, Zoya has slowly released polishes in this holo finish and I love it. It's scattered and dimensional and I wish they would release more!

Wintry Gradient with Girly Bits and Morgan Taylor

Good morning! I'm starting my year off sick and it's kinda meh. My new year mani was chipping as I did so much cleaning on New Year's Day. I really didn't have it in me to do something complicated and I was craving something light and wintry, and this is what you get!
