Takko Tuesday! - 1UP

Happy Takko Tuesday!

I have another fun little shade from the Takko Lacquer Late Summer 2017 Collection to share with you today.  "1UP" is a bright green apple creme that is packed with gold microflakie shimmer.  If you think this shade and its name are oddly familiar, then you must be a Mario fan.  This polish was indeed inspired by those little 1UP green mushrooms that give Mario extra lives.  How fun is that?  Can we request an entire collection based on Mario fandom please?  The formula on this shade is quite nice.  It applied smoothly and pretty darn opaque.  I am showing you two coats with glossy top coat here.

My collaboration shade with KBShimmer - Pearls Gone Wild!

Oh my goodness!

I have some crazy fantastic news.  Crazy news!  I feel like I have unlocked the best blogger achievement ever.  I have collaborated with KBShimmer to create a polish for the Fall 2017 Collection.  What the what?!?!?

KBShimmer is the biggest and best known indie polish maker in the business (at least I think so).  I was unbelievably excited to be added to their regular blogger list 2 years ago.  But being asked to create a new shade of nail polish with them is like beyond amazing.  I really hope you love "Pearls Gone Wild" as much as I do.  Squeeee!!!

Inspired by Art for the #31DC2017Weekly

Hi all!

So I messed up.  I miss the Inspired by Art prompt!  I thought I was caught up yesterday until I realized that I missed a step.  Oopsies.  Well, here we have a mani with the inspiration of 80s poster artists.  Actually, this was more a reversed inspiration.  When I was these nail wraps by ThumpsUp Nails, they made me think of old posters of cartoon/pop art style women in the 80s with big hair and animal print.  If you don't know what I am talking about, google art posters by Patrick Nagel and Dennis Mukai to see the awesome of the 80s.  This manicure just gave me that 80s vibe.

Pahlish - Orphan Black Duo

Hi folks!

I have a cute little fall duo to share with you today.  Pahlish has released a duo of polishes inspired by the show Orphan Black.  I have not seen this show but it is on my list of things to watch.  The two shades are just perfect for fall.  Aren't you ready for fall?

Inspired by a Flag for the #31DC2017Weekly

Hi all!!

I am officially caught up with the #31DC2017Weekly now!  Tomorrow's post will be right on track.  Last year, for the inspired by a flag prompt, I did a flag for Iceland right before I went on vacation there.  I am going to do the same thing this year.  Next week, I am heading to Europe for a vacation.  I am starting off in Copenhagen for a conference then then meeting my German polish sister, Lotte, in Germany!  Yay!!!  I can't wait to meet my little international polish pen pal that has become a true friend. :)  So I am inspired by the German flag today.  My nail are not a direct representation of the actual German flag but I was inspired by the colors of the flag: black, red and yellow.
