August 2021 Polish Pickup Offerings: The Elements

 Press Sample

Hey all! Another Polish Pickup and the theme is Elements. I am going to be honest and say meh to this theme. I feel like the themes are uninspired lately or maybe I miss inspiration from indies themselves as they probably get more inspo from themes they create as opposed to PPU forcing makers to fit into their theme. I happen to enjoy all three polishes from this month, so let's take a look.

Gradient Dotticure with Jessica Golden Hour

Press Sample

Well, I'm back with one more post on the Golden Hour collection from Jessica Cosmetics, but I know I'll be using the colors all the time in nail art and such. The collection is called Golden Hour, so I had to do a kind of sunset gradient look, and this is what I came up with.

Zoya Dreamin' Horizontal Line Nail Art

 Press Sample

Happy Monday, everyone! Today I have a simple and fun nail art to share. Summer 2021 has been all about the simple and fun nail are and this look is included. Of course, I wanted to do some art with the Zoya Dreamin' collection but I don't know, it did not exactly give me summer vibes at first. Well, I change my mind! It's totally summer!

Zoya Dreamin' Comparisons

 Press Sample

Whenever I get cremes for Zoya, especially pink cremes, I like to compare them to others that I have in my stash. Really, it's a way for me to figure out what colors to donate and which are unique for my stash. So when I swatched the Dreamin' collection, a few felt familiar. I actually re-swatched these, so these are truly quick and dirty swatches for comparison reasons.

Alter Ego Her Majesty Tall Bearded Iris

Can you believe I am actually posting an HHC polish on time? They are always sent on time, I’m just always late. I love that Cynthia is exposing me to all new flowers. I have a Pinterest board of flowers I love and I’ve been having fun looking at these as I get the polishes in. This is available July 14-21, so let’s take a look at more photos.

Jessica Cosmetics Hand and Nail Care

 Press sample

I usually post nail polishes from Jessica Cosmetics but they have an entire hand and nail care line and they sent me a few items so I thought I would share. I’ve used their nail files and cuticle oils but and do enjoy their base and top coats. This is my first time trying their lotions and cuticle balm, so why not share it?

90s Nail Art: Smiley Faces with Jessica Cosmetics Golden Hour

 Press Sample

Seriously, as a 90s kid, I am not sure how I feel about my students embracing the trends I tried to forget hahah. I think about Carrie Bradshaw telling Jack Berger that NO WAY would a woman be caught in public with a scrunchie (high pitched voice)., she would cry haha. So everyone loves a smiley face and I was inspired by the new Jessica Cosmetics Golden Hour for some 90s art!

Fourth of July Nail Art

Press Sample

🎆Happy Fourth of July! 🎆 I had all the intentions of posting my Fourth of July nail art a few days ago but life got away from me and so I only did my nails last night and I did a really quick art. I looked back at my blog and realized I am mostly uninspired when it comes to Fourth of July nail art. I have some really awesome ones that I’ve done but lately my life has been about the simple. I pulled out colors I knew I wanted to use, thought of a few ideas, show them to my significant other, and I let him pick out my art. Also, if you still want to do some nail art, this took 30 minutes total so it was quick and easy if I do say so myself!
