Penny Bloom Summer Daze Collection!

Hey guys!

Press Sample

Long time no talk, eh? I am still on a little break from blogging but am going to get back to it slowly but surely. What better way to ease back into posting than with a beautiful summer creme collection from Penny Bloom? Formerly Nayll, Penny Bloom Polish offers custom polishes that you create right on the website and also their own line of beautiful creations, which is what we will be looking at today!

The Summer Daze collection releases on June 21st, the first day of summer, and is a 10 piece creme collection inspired by the long hot days of summer (my favorite)! The polishes retail for $10 each or you can purchase the entire collection for $90!

All swatches are shown with topcoat.

Dog Days is a light tan creme. This was 3 coats. As you can see, there was some pigment that didn't get mixed up all the way in the bottle but it didn't affect the polish when applying it to the nail.

Self-Tanner is a mid tone brown. This was almost a jelly type of creme and needed 3 coats.

Morning Light is a beautiful bright yellow, again 3 coats.

Solar Ray is a bright orange creme. This was the tiniest bit thick but not unmanageable at all. 3 coats.

Summer Night is a lovely pink, 2 coats.

Bikini Days is a light blue creme. This was 2 easy coats.

Ocean Deep is a medium blue creme, covering nicely in two coats.

Blue Lagoon, a gorgeous dusty teal and opaque in 2 coats.

Greenscape is a nice kiwi green and covered in 2 coats.

Finally, Smoothie is a deep green and covered in 2 coats.


Sara was also kind enough to give you a discount code for 20% off your entire order! Just use code FSHNFTG20 and voila! There's your discount! 

Remember, this collection will be available in one week, on June 21st! Which shades are you going to be getting?? Don't forget that you can also create your own custom polishes on the Penny Bloom site. I've done it before the rebrand and just a few weeks ago and I LOVE how the polishes came out! Swatches of those will be coming soon! 

Talk to you soon!

Blush Lacquers Blush Beauties Facebook Group Customs!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose Press Sample

Today I have a new to me indie that I have been lusting after for a long time! Blush Lacquer is a fairly new brand, about one year on the scene, and I've seriously wanted just about everything I've seen her release! I was so happy to see Victoria and her Blush Lacquers would be at Polish Con but even more excited when she posted an opportunity to win the Blush Beauties Facebook Group Custom polishes for swatching if you were attending Polish Con and I was one of three people who won the duo!


The first polish is called Oopsie Daisies and it a slightly green tinged yellow packed with green and gold/yellow flakies and also a pinky nude shimmer. This had a great formula and was opaque in 2 coats. I thought my nail was visible after two coats but it turns out that lovely pinky nude shimmer was playing tricks on me. I did do 3 coats here but the color and opacity didn't change, so you be good to go with 2!


Siren Swells is an oxidized green (I just saw the Statue of Liberty, this must be in my head! LOL) with golden shimmer and copper flakes. YOU GUYS. I am in love with this color. I don't have anything like either of these colors (which is saying something!) and I love them both but oh my gosh this one is just <3

I used 2 coats for this polish as well and the formula was outstanding.


These will be available for order on May 5, 2017. Since these are group customs, you do need to be a member of the group to purchase the group.

Talk to you soon!

Northern Star Polish Chance of Frogs

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

Today's green is brought to you by Northern Star Polish Chance of Frogs. This is... well, it's frog green with subtle scattered holo. I have quite a few from this brand and really enjoy all of the polishes but she appears to not make polish any more? I'm not certain, of course.

Anyway, this is 2 coats.

Talk to you soon!

Zoya Vespa

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose Affiliate Link


Marching on.... haha.. get it? Haha. Okay. Anyway, today's green is Zoya Vespa, a sage green Pixie Dust. I've spoken of my love for the Pixie Dusts before and so I won't dust off that soapbox (bahahahaa. Man, I'm on a roll!) but yes, I still love Pixie Dusts.

This was a bit sheer and needed 3 coats for opacity.
