Ever since I fell in love with Model City Polish I buy every single new collection. Seriously, I do.
So I'm going to show you part of the fall collection today, part 2 will have the rest plus the November small batches. 

First up is  Cosmic Lovers,a dark blue holo.
Everyone that knows me knows I love blue nail polish so when Nina showed this polish in her fan group I knew I needed it in my life!
I used 2 coats plus a topcoat. 
Seriously,I'm in love with this one.
Next is I'll Catch You,dark green holo.
When I saw this one I immediately thought of Paradisce City from Model City Polish, but this one is a little bit darker.
I used 2 coat plus a topcoat. Doesn't it look like a it would make a great color for christmas? 
Last is Glowing Embers, an orange holo.
Orange is color I usually don't like & stay away from. However I really like the look of this one.
I used 2 coats plus a topcoat.
Also none of these stained! Another reason I love them.
Stay tuned, I'll have the rest of the collection later this week:)

Press Sample

I'm so excited to show everyone Turtle Tootsie Polish Black Friday Duo & Topcoat! These will only be available start on Black Friday thru the weekend so if you want them you better grab them because after Black Friday they will be gone for good.

First up is 5 Months of Bills.
5 Months of Bills is a green metallic polish.
Isnt it just perfect for Christmas? 
I used 2 coast to achieve this look. Also it drys pretty fast, before I applied topcoat I bumped my nails & I didn't smudge them.
Next is Midnight Madness.
Midnight Madness is a grey almost black polish with holo glitter & rainbow glitter.
Isn't pretty? It's so festive! 
I used 2 coast to achieve this look. Also I didn't have to "go fishing" for the glitter.

The Nail Polish Book Review

I was recently in a Facebook group were this lady asked how does everyone keep track of their nail polish. Now I've heard this question before but the answer has always been a spreadsheet.

Not this time. Instead several said they use an app call The Nail Polish Book.
This surprised me because I seriously wasn't expecting anyone to tell her there is an app.

Pretty & Polished & Model City Polish Nail Art

I've been enjoying glitter toppers lately.  I discovered them in September & I'm still trying to figure out how I managed without them! 
Glitter toppers help dress up polishes, giving your nails a whole new look.
It also gives you a nail art look that's super easy.

Wave Of Polish Auction

October isn't just breast cancer awareness month, it's also International Pregnancy & Infant Loss awareness month. Theresa of Grace-Full Lacquer is helping get the word out to everyone.

Pregnancy & Infant Loss is very close to the heart of grace-full lacquer. Theresa lost her daughter at only 32 hours old.  By hosting this auction, Theresa is hoping to bring more light to a subject that is not often spoken of.  It's estimated that 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in miscarriage while around 3,000 babies are lost shortly after birth. 

Grace-Full Lacquer will be hosting the 3rd annual Wave Of Polish Auction. 26 indie polish brands have donated nail polish for this wonderful auction with all proceeds to benefit SANDS Australia.

Sands Australia is a non profit organization working to provide support and education to families going through the awful tragedy of losing a child. 

Here are a few of the polishes that are in the auction


Lilllypad Lacquer

Tatty Mule

Auction ends on 10/15

Mani Of The Day

Today's mani is probably my most popular mani to date! I've gotten so many compliments even my doctor noticed my nails! I even had 2 people ask me if I did my nails myself or did I go to a salon. 

I used Pretty & Polished in Aquaholic &
Turtle Tootsie Polish in Suvival 
I love how they go so good together.
My nails look so festive!
This was my first time using Pretty & Polish & I was very happy with it. It was easy to use, dried quickly, and lasted several days too. 
Granted this isn't the first turtle tootsie polish but it's the first topper I've tried, and I was very happy with it too. Now like with pretty much all toppers you have to swirl the brush around and "catch' the glitter which I thought was pretty easy. Dried fast & lasted several days too.

Pretty & Polished Gives Back

It's always great to see someone wanting to help raise awareness of breast cancer. But it's awesome to want to continue to help out cancer patients all year long, that's exactly what Chelsea of Pretty & Polished is doing.

The Gas Fund provides money to patients in order to get to and from appointments to ensure that they can continue to receive life saving cancer treatments.

Indie Breast Cancer Awareness polish List

So as most of you know I love indie polishes. Those are currently the only polishes I buy right now. So I asked the polish community who was making polishes for breast cancer awareness month. Please note there are probably more but this is all I've found so far.
Here's my list so far

Sephora Sleep Mask review

A while back wheni was at sephora I noticed several of the employee gathered around trying to decide which of these small colorful boxes they wanted. I had no idea what they were till a few weeks later when I finally saw them on the shelf. 

Mani of the day

So being a nail polish lover it's hard to pick out which color I should wear next. 20 minutes after I have narrowed it down to 3 I finally decided on one.

I picked Turtle Tootsie Polish in coffee & chocolates.

Unboxing! Enchanted Polish

So I kept hearing all about Enchanted Polish & how it's amazing, you need it in your life, once you try it you'll be hooked ect. So I finally decided to preorder from Enchated last month to see for myself what all this hype is about. I only ordered 2 out of the 3.
It arrived in a small white box, reminds me a lot of juleps boxes. 
Onced I opened it I saw my 2 polishes wrapped in bubble wrap & packing peanuts right up against them.
The first one I picked up was Reign Beau
Isn't it pretty? It's so pretty in person.
The second one is Disco H2O
There is a little bit of a shadow in my picture(sorry) but I like this color.
So I'm very impressed with the size of the bottles, I'm not sure what the size is. I think it's a 15 maybe 16 oz bottle 
So I tried out Reign Beau and I love it so far. No chips, easy to apply, & dried pretty fast.
So overall I like Enchanted. And now I'm regretting not getting the 3rd color.
These colors are currently sold out
