Great Lakes Lacquer - Yes, Very Sad. Anyway...
Inspired by the one and only (HA! See what Mariah did there?) God of Mischief. She acknowledges she went off the big screen for this one, but she absolutely could not help it.
A moody, greyed out teal featuring a soft linear holographic, holographic microflake (metalure), and iridescent flake violet red, orange, gold, and some green.
no planned cap

KBShimmer - Tastes Like
Suspending belief in reality, getting lost in a story, and traveling with our eyes and heart to another world are what make movies so special. One of Christy's favorite movies took her on a journey to a chocolate factory, where a gleaming ticket of gold allowed our hero to experience a river of chocolate, lickable wallpaper, and fizzy soda, all with the goal of getting an everlasting treat. That purple coat and singing cast took her away and caused many a chocolate bar to be opened slowly, hoping for her own glimmer of gold. 

Tastes Like is inspired by the infamous scene with the tasty fruit-decorated wallpaper. An array of colorful flakes mirror the yummy fruits, while a bold purple base helps the flakes pop. The result is a fun, though not lickable, polish you're sure to love. Shown in two coats with topcoat. KBShimmer also loves this shade with a matte topcoat for maximum flake goodness.

KBShimmer Zesty Lemon Hand & Body Scrub
Fresh, tart, and not too sweet, Zesty Lemon scrub has notes of fresh lemon zest along with a hint of juicy grapefruit. Subtle white musk notes anchor this refreshing scrub for a scent anyone will enjoy. The bright citrus notes make this the perfect scrub to keep in the kitchen for use after spring garden prep, or in your bathroom to help you embrace the morning.

I am definitely adding this scent to my favorites list! I love that lemony freshness and using this right before my pink sugar body lotion is a fantastic combo!! If I had the pink sugar scrub, I'd mix it w/this. Pink Sugar Lemon all the things!

Valentine's Duo from Baby Girl and Kathleen & Co.

I have a Valentine's Duo to share with you. Mia of Kathleen & Co. teamed up with NeNe of Baby Girl Lacquer to bring you a fun duo! It will be available January 20 at 10am central at Kathleen & Co.'s website. And there's a story behind this duo! (Direct quotes from Mia are italicized)

When I was first starting out as a maker I reached out to Nene thinking she was a swatcher and even though I was mistaken she struck up a conversation with me and we learned we had so much in common. She was one of the first makers to befriend me and has always been super supportive and encouraging. I’m excited to be collaborating with her again after all these years!

Baby Girl Lacquer brings a beautiful red cream polish and cuticle balm, both scented with tart & black cherry fragrances.
Nene says that your nails will smell so good, you'll want to bite them! Don't bite them, though! I can't be held responsible for personal injuries!

I wore three coats of Cherry Kisses with topcoat. I noticed a subtle tomato red sheen shifting across my nails as I moved them and thought that was unique looking. When I asked Mia if that was intended, I found that the polish is being reformulated to be straight up red as seen in the base shade.

The cuticle balm smells like cherry candies and my favorite black cherry Kool-Aid. (I still drink it!) The balm melts on contact which makes it so easy to apply. It added a nice sheen to my nails and my skin and feels so soft.

Kathleen & Co's part of the duo is a fun Valentine's topper that is loaded with pink aurora shimmer in a clear base with added holo flecks. She's also including a little pot of glitter hearts in pink, white and magenta as shown in the kit photo above.

I did a little nail art with the topper and a few of the white hearts, such a cute combo!

The topper goes great with the red cream and looks pretty over pastel creams too. Check out the topper over Nina Ultra Pro's In a Tiff.

Ya'll this is an amazing opportunity! ..and I'll tell you why.
Victoria was the first company to make a reflective nail polish (Flashing Lights) back in 2014, believe it or not. She still makes and carries that polish today in her shop. She is also well known for the super bright glow for the gitd polishes that come in a variety of colors. With this group custom, you get the best of both! Don't miss this hybrid polish! Have a look!

I Need Space - A deep spruce green jelly loaded with shimmer and iridescent flakes with a smattering of red and gold reflective glitters that glows green in the dark.

Shown in two coats with topcoat, no issues to report. Photos shown under my regular studio lighting, camera flash turned on, a blacklight/uv, and in the dark. This polish is stunninng in all situations.
