Lollipop Posse Lacquer January 2018 Shimmers Collection

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! Today I have a brand new collection from Lollipop Posse Lacquer to share with you! Karen designed the 2018 Shimmers collection as a sort of palette cleanser for the new year, and boy was it that for me! Don't get me wrong, I adore all of the crazy complex finishes that exist in the indie world today, but this collection of lovely contrasting shimmers just took me back to the start of my polish journey! I feel like they have a little nostalgia combined with fantastic formulas. All in all, I've enjoyed the heck out of wearing these polishes this past week! The 2018 Shimmers Collection released in the Lollipop Posse Lacquer shop at 2 PM Eastern (with a special price for the first 24 hours if you order the full collection).

Dreamland Lacquer Woleebaph Ronder Wily Collection

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have Dreamland Lacquer's brand new collection to share with you. Noelie sent me an e-mail with the details about this collection, and when I first opened it...I can't remember the last time I have been so puzzled by a nail polish collection name. Just before I asked Noelie if she was losing it, I clicked on the linked post and everything was explained! The Woleebaph Ronder Wily Collection is a 6-piece collection of gorgeous shades with names taken from a computerized name generator for colors. There are some wild ones...and I'm still campaigning for a part II to this collection to include a Rose Hork polish...

Here is a full explanation to Noelie's inspiration behind the collection:
Who among us hasn’t wanted the machine from the Jetsons where you put your hands in, and pull them out fully manicured in the color of their choice? Nail polish via technology. However, judging by the color swatches in this article, we’re not sure artificial intelligence is quite up to the task of making indie polishes just yet: http://aiweirdness.com/post/160776374467/new-paint-colors-invented-by-neural-network 
Inspired by the work of the neural networks being run by Janelle Shane, this time, we took care of the sparkles, and only let the robot polish overlords name them. Presenting: “Woleebaph Ronder Wily” - or, in English, “What Your Computer Might Name Your Polish.” 
The Woleebaph Roder Wily Collection will be available for pre-order starting today at 2:00 PM CDT for a 48 hour window in the Dreamland Lacquer shop.

The Stranger Love Box

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have an adorable collaboration box to share with you...The Stranger Love Box! Le Polish, Dollish Polish, Supernatural Lacquer, and Night Owl Lacquer have come together to create this fun and beautiful Stranger Things-inspired Valentine's Box. The names are as amazing as the polishes! All-in-all, it's definitely not your usual Valentine's offering which is delightfully refreshing. The Stranger Love Box will go on sale today at noon in the Le Polish shop and will sell for $36 plus shipping. There will be 25 ready to ship boxes available and then it will switch to an unlimited pre-order that will remain open until 1-21-18 at midnight EST.

*My bottle of Night Owl Lacquer's I'd Fight a Demodog For You was an unfortunate victim of Alabama's Snowmageddon 2018 so it is still stuck in USPS purgatory until we thaw out a little bit and have mail service again. Since I was not able to show you swatches of this amazingly gorgeous beauty, please check out these swatches...it is SO pretty and you WANT to check it out!
