Indie Pickup August 2019 - Hit The Bottle Lightshow

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Well it's vacation time for me but I seem to have enough cell signal that I'm not totally offline which is a nice change.  It's a good thing too since I didn't have a chance to post Hit The Bottle's contribution to Indie Pickup this month before I left.  Lightshow is a linear holographic top coat.  I tried it out over both white and black and it's a lovely top coat to add a bit of sparkle to any mani!

Maniology Mani X Me Box July 2019

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  I hope everyone is having a great day.  I know I've been saying I'm pretty behind in my blogging because of general life stuff.  In fact I'm so far behind that I didn't get to play with this month's Mani X Me Box until just last night and it's the last day to order it.  In fact, it might be too late today to get the Metamorphosis box but, if you email them, the lovely folks at Maniology might hook you up.  For anyone who doesn't know, the Mani X Me box is a monthly subscription box with 2 exclusive plates, 2 polishes and an extra.  July's box was all about bugs, both the creepy-crawly kind and the pretty kind.  I really liked this month's plates so I'm disappointed in myself for not getting to it sooner.  Hopefully you can still get your hands on it and, if you can, please use the coupon code COPY10 to save $5 off your first box.

Hit The Bottle Chrome Sweet Chrome Stamping Polish Swatches

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I'm back today with more stuff I've been waiting to post.  Hit The Bottle released a collection of pastel metallic stamping polish this year called "Chrome Sweet Chrome" and they are superb!  I received them to review from one of Hit The Bottle's distributors, Beautometry, who just so happens to be having a preorder on all of the out-of-stock shades going right now.  Usually I find that when a polish is chrome, it's always really silvery and loses its color but Michelle has managed to get that metallic finish without losing any of the vibrance.  Aren't they lovely?

Maniology Classique Stamping Plates

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  I've had the Classique plates from Maniology for quite awhile but they sold out so quickly that I've held back on posting about them until they're back in stock.  And this weekend I got the email that they're back!!  These two plates are wonderful for making simple (you might even say classic) manis but are also great for those of us that like to jazz it up just a little bit more. I wasn't remotely surprised at how quickly they sold out since these should be staples in everyone's stamping plate collection.  If they strike your fancy, please use the coupon code COPY10 to save yourself 10%!

The Digit-al Dozen does Christmas In July - Christmas Flamingos!

Hey there!  After my last couple of posts (which were pretty blech) I'm happy to be ending The Digit-al Dozen's Christmas In July week with one that I think is pretty darn cute.  Seriously, what's better than flamingos in Santa hats?  Nothing, that's what!

The Digit-al Dozen does Christmas In July - Neon Santa

Hey there!  It's Day 4 of The Digit-al Dozen's Christmas In July week and today's mani is pretty much a nail fail.  I wanted to do typical holiday images but in neon so it would be summer-y but I was clearly not on my game the night I did these.  Once I put the picture on the computer I wasn't happy so I did another neon holiday mani but it was even worse!  So I gave up and stuck with this one.  But I promise, tomorrow's mani won't suck so bear with me...

The Digit-al Dozen does Christmas In July - Santa Flying Over The Tropics

Hey there!  I know, it's pretty late to be getting up a Digit-al Dozen post but gotta fit in the blogging when I can...ya know?  For today's Christmas In July design, I wanted to have Santa and his reindeer flying over a tropical sunset.  I also wanted that sunset to be snowing but that got pretty hidden...but the thought was there!

The Digit-al Dozen does Christmas In July - Merry Summer!

Hey there!  I asked my sister to help me come up with Christmas In July nail ideas for this week's Digit-al Dozen theme and she came across a picture of a watermelon Christmas tree.  It was just such a perfect blend of summer and Christmas that I couldn't not use it.  I wasn't entirely sure what else to do with it but I thought neon Christmas lights would be fun so that's what I have to share today.

The Digit-al Dozen does Christmas In July - Christmas Beach Party

Hey there!  Long time, no talk!  I've been a bit of a mess lately so blogging hasn't been highest on my priority list.  But the reason is a pretty exciting one...I've been looking to buy a house and I think I found one!  It's been mighty stressful though.  I don't know how some people look for ages and ages looking for the perfect place.  I would probably develop 500 ulcers if I did that.  It's been about 2 months for me and that's plenty!  But, stress or not, I didn't want to miss our Digit-al Dozen week.  This month's theme is Christmas In July.  At first I hated the idea of the theme but it ended up being pretty fun.  For my first mani, I went with a beach party design.  Because even Santa and his elves deserve some relaxation time, tropical drinks and all!
