The Hunger Games / Mockingjay Nail Art & AWESOME gift I received and Jed failing

The Hunger Games / Mockingjay Nail Art

Okay, to before we get started with the mani, I just had to take a moment to thank Sarah of Tunay Na Mahal for the amazing present she sent me! My post about China Glaze Fairy Dust is one of my most popular, spawning it's own hashtag on IG and bringing fans of sparkle and glitter everywhere together. Sarah had a custom button and bumper sticker made for me, along with a cute Mugen magnet! I'm definitely going to have to wear the button to a local meetup I'm attending soon, and I actually hung the sticker up above my polish area on my desk. Thanks again, Sarah!

ILNP Fall Collection Holo Swatches - Champange Blush, Fall Semester & Black Orchid

ILNP Fall Collection Holo Swatches - Champange Blush, Fall Semester & Black Orchid

I absolutely love pretty much everything ILNP puts out, but I hadn't been able to purchase anything new in awhile due to being, well....broke as a joke. Recently, she had to change her bottle style and logo and had a really nice sale, so I scrounged up some pennies from the couch cushions (okay, not really....well, maybe) and picked up three colors I'd been 'lemming' (ugh, am I the only one who hates that term?) for awhile.

Literary Lacquers Rebecca Collection Gradient

Literary Lacquers Rebecca Collection Gradient

Remember when I used to only post 3 times a week? Ha, ha, ha. I hope you guys aren't too sick of me because I'm getting a little tired of having SO many posts ready to show you and only a few days to show you on, so for the next 3 weeks or so I'm going to be posting 7 times a week, weekends and all! I have stuff that I swatched & prepared posts for like 5 months ago that keep getting pushed back, so you'll see those marked as 'from the vault'! Just wanted to give you guys that heads up- ideally I would like to catch up to a point where the posts you're seeing were done within the last day or even that day!

Anyways, on to the nails. When I reviewed the Literary Lacquers Rebecca Collection, I knew immediately that I wanted to put them together in nail art of some fashion. After some thought, I decided that I really wanted to try them together in a sponge gradient!

Fair Maiden Polish Baby It's Cold Outside Collection Swatches & Review

Fair Maiden Polish Baby It's Cold Outside Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

As we all know, new indie brands can really be hit or miss, so I am usually a little hesitant to try a new brand out. However, I was so impressed by Fair Maiden Polish that I had to try them out as soon as I could fit it into my schedule (which I unfortunately couldn't do for their launch collection which looked incredible- be sure to check those out in their shop, too)!

Looking at their website, labels, etc., you'd have really no idea that they were a new brand. It seems that they really took the time to do their homework and plan things out properly and they have been receiving a ton of positive buzz around the blogosphere right out of the gate!

Dollish Polish Cuticle Balm Review

Dollish Polish Cuticle Balm Review

It's getting into that part of the year where the air gets colder and drier and my hands really start feeling the effects of that dryness. So, when Dollish Polish recently had a sale on their new cuticle balm scents, I decided to pick two up- Dead Men Tell No Tales and High Functioning Sociopath.
