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.
Last but not least is the Pumpkin Cheesecake Topcoat. I used this topcoat on both polishes. It smells soooooo good! But fair warning for everyone, do not use this on an empty stomach it will make you hungry! That's how yummy it smells!
Also I seriously love this warning on the bottom of the bottle.
Today is all about the first holo polish I ever bought. I really didn't understand what Holo's were at first. I mean I had a few from Julep & I had seen Essie's Holo'd but I didn't really get what everyone was excited about till I bought this polish.
I had decided to take a break from halloween mani's, especially since I totally messed up my nail art mani. Granted I like halloween but I'm just itching to wear a green polish & a blue polish right now.
So the green polish I picked is actually the first time I ever use it!
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
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.
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.
Pretty & Polished is coming out with 2 polishes for breast cancer awareness,
1 is a thermal polish and will be available for $10. The second is a creme polish and will be available for $8. The sale of these polishes is to help the Cancer Care Packages that Pretty & Polishes will be making & Little Red Door to help their Gas Fund.
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. Not everyone lives close to a hospital that can preform chemotherapy, so this fund is crucial to ensure that even with a cancer diagnosis, patients will have one less thing to worry about
Pretty and polished is going beyond breast cancer awareness month and continuing to support The Little Red Door & The oncology unit at Ball Memorial Hospital until further notice because cancer can affect anyone at any time of year, not just October.
Every month Pretty & Polished will be selling special items each month to help fund the Cancer Care Packages. Like in October, Pretty & Polished will be also be selling other pink products such as nail art, mani melts, and all of the pink shades will be moved to our Cancer Awareness section with all the sales going to the new program.
The Cancer Care Packages will also be Available for sale on Pretty & Polished website so people can send them to someone they know that's going thru cancer treatments.

So I actually have a funny story about this mani. I always buy the newest colors from Model City Polish since I discovered them months ago. So this color is SB 09 September is pretty, it's a greyish holo that almost look white.
With the Breast Cancer Collection launching on Friday, I have some new information about the launch.
Your probably thinking "Oh wow that's a lot!" It is but they is a good reason. Chrissy, the Owner of Turtle Tootsie Polish is a Breast Cancer survivor. She said she wants Breast Cancer Awareness a big deal for her brand so every October it's going to be a month long of fun stuff & giveaways!
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.
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.
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.
Disney & Sephora have teamed up again. They are releasing compact mirrors on September 15th.That's right, they launch tomorrow! These highly anticipated compact mirrors will cost $32 & will be available till March 2016.
Anna & Elsa
Aren't these beautiful? Grab these quick because once they are gone they are gone for good.
