Enchanted Polish A Little Fishy Told Me

Hey girls! I know, I know. It's been forever. No excuses, just posts.

Today I'm going to show you an awesome polish made in honor of a beautiful angel. This is A Little Fishy Told Me by Enchanted Polish, made in honor of the beautiful late Talia Joy Castellano. It's a minty blue holo with duochrome shimmer that flashes blue and pink. Sounds amazing, right? IT IS! Here's an awesome bottle shot:

Look at the holo!! And the base color is beautiful! AH! Here's a swatch taken in full sunlight:

Stunning, right? I can't get over how beautiful this polish is! I used two coats by itself in the picture. The formula was perfect. Smooth, pigmented, and non-streaky.

What do you think? Do you like it? ALSO: Do you guys want me to include macros of the bottles from now on? I think it adds a little something extra to the posts. Let me know. If I get no opposition, I'll keep posting the bottle shots. Let me know what you think! Thanks for reading! :D

Mainstream Lacquer TBBT Swatches

Hey girlies!

Two posts in one day because I'm really backed up on posts. I'm sorry for my two month break, work and stuff just had me going crazy. I'm sick now though so that means I have time to post!

As you may know, my boyfriend and I are the owners and creators of Mainstream Lacquer. We have put out a new collection based on The Big Bang Theory and I have swatches to share with y'all!

First up we have Penny Blossoms, a clear base with gold square, gold dot, caramel hex, brown hex, pink dot, and pink square glitter. Above is one coat over Color Club Who Are You Wearing?

Next up is Brown Dynamite (which is what Raj thinks his astronaut nick name would be). It's a clear base with all square glitter in red, blue, gold, green, and purple. Shown is one coat over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

Up next is Are Those Space Pants You're Wearing? which was inspired by those cheesy pick up lines that Wolowitz loves so much. It's a black jelly base with blue dot, blue square, green square, purple square, and large fuschia dot glitter. Above is two coats on its own on my ring finger and pinky, and one coat over black on my pointer and middle fingers. I probably should have done three coats on its own since it's a little splotchy on my pinky.

Here is King of the Nerds, which is how Leonard identifies himself. It's a grey jelly base with white hex, teal square, black square, and white micro glitter. On my pointer and middle is two coats on its own and on my ring and pinky is two coats over SOPI Frankly I Don't Give A-dam.

Here is Sheldor the Conqueror which is Sheldon's nickname on an online game. It's a clear base with red, white, yellow, and baby blue glitters in it. Shown is one coat over SOPI Frankly, I Don't Give A-dam

And lastly, here is Our Whole Universe which is a clear base with all of the glitters used in this collection. Here is one coat over black and grey bases.

The Nail Collection Review

Hey girlies! Today I have a different kind of review post. Rather than reviewing a polish, I'm reviewing a subscription box service. The lovely Ana of contacted me and asked me to review her service on my blog. This is an unbiased opinion about her service.

The subscription box costs $30 a month and you receive four full size bottles of polishes. These aren't indie polishes, they're mainstream polishes like OPI, Essie, China Glaze, Orly, and Zoya. You don't get to pick the colors, but I think that adds to the fun of the box!

The polishes come in a box (duh) and they are in black tissue paper filled with confetti. The polishes are packaged very well and I had no leaks or spills or breaks. I received Zoya Thandie, OPI Innie Minnie Mighty Bow, and Essie Rock the Boat and The Girls are Out. I did do some swatches but I'm not satisfied with them so look forward to better ones soon!

Overall, I think this is a great subscription box! I like that the collections are current and the colors in the box I got (which I'm told was the August box) were suited to the season. For $30, you're getting four polishes that cost up to $9 each on their own, so you are saving a bit of money too!

To learn more about The Nail Collection and/or sign up for your own box, click on over to! You can cancel or skip a month at any time, so if you can't afford it on any given month, you have the option to skip it. I also think that's very thoughtful.

What do you think? Do you subscribe to any of these kinds of boxes? Let me know, thanks for reading! :)
