Anonymous lacquer

I am truly blessed to call two indie makers my friend. One I blame for getting me addicted, PolishTBH, the other is feeding my addiction locally, Mildred at Anonymous Lacquer. I met Mildred at a meet up earlier this year and just hit it off. When she told me she was starting her own indie line I was soo excited. I was able to snag a few of her new fall ’14 line at our most recent meet up and I’m blown away by her creativity. I’m highlighting Rainbows After Dark and Halloween Barbie in this post.

The formula was spot on. Not too thick not too thin. Rainbows after dark was three thin layers, but two could have worked. Halloween Barbie was one coat and placement wasn’t needed it was so glitter saturated. Definitely two must haves for the fall. These won’t be released until October for sale but she has many other can’t miss polishes in stock now. Check her out on Instagram at @anonymouslacquer and her website.

Flash Your Tips

I originally signed up for the A Box Indied monthly subscription box in November when it first came out. Every month has had a stand out in my eyes. March’s stand out was Girly Bits’ Flash Your Tips!!!! It is gorgeous inside and breath taking outside. Enough with that let’s get to the pictures that say more than I ever could.

Finger Fizzies

I am a Lush addict! Who doesn’t love a relaxing bath with a fizzy bath bomb?! Well with that in mind how could I pass up Cinema Swatch Lacquer’s Finger Fizzies? I couldn’t. Well I ordered two, one for me and one for a swap. I ordered myself Lux Lavender for $5.00. When I ordered I was a little concerned that I just paid $5.00 for one finger bath…. Ugh yes I’m addicted. So when it arrived (all intact none crushed despite how careless USPS is) I was thrilled to see that three came in a box! The box is a cute plastic box with decorative shred on the bottom. Each fizz is individually wrapped in plastic.

The fizzes are very relaxing. The lavender actually has dried lavender inside that comes out as the fizz dissolves. The fizzing lasts fairly long (sorry I didn’t time it), longer than I expected for such a small item. Once all the fizz ends, you have lavender floating, glitter and oil floating on top. I tried leaving the bath in a bowl for 5 hours and then reheating the water. It needed to be stirred up but still felt great and very moisturizing, minus the fizz.

Fun and work friendly!!

I subscribed to Llarowe’s A Box Indied right from the start. In my opinion there has been some hits and some misses. Different Dimension’s aMAIZEing is definitely a HIT!!! It’s a gorgeous holo, something sorely missing in my Different Dimensions stash. It’s a beautiful tanish nude. With a scattered holo that is nothing short of a distraction! This is three coats but is beautiful with two coats (vnl with two coats). Also gorgeous matte if you are a matte lover!

Bestie Twin Nails

MillnPolish from Instagram did Bestie Twin Nails with me! This was my first time doing it. I had soo much fun we used Cupcake Polish’s Chicago and then ran with the theme and did mini Willis (formerly Sears) Tower and then a fun chain! If you haven’t taken the time to A.) do Bestie Twin Nails you should! and B.) haven’t followed the awesomely  artistic MillnPolish you should! C.) haven’t purchased from Cupcake Polish, what are you waiting for!!!! This polish is breathtakingly beautiful. It’s just beyond words the holo is the best I have ever had the pleasure to wear!

Wow My Indie WishList is Crazy

I am participating in  the  #bitchesloveindies swap in Instagram and my Birthday is coming up March 30th!!!! So I’ve been updating my wish list and compiling a complete list of all my indies that I own.  WOW! I can’t believe how many awesome polishes I own and how many I still need! Yes need, some of these brands I haven’t even gotten to try and that’s just not acceptable lol. The problem is, I know I’m missing some brands that I need to try but I just don’t know which.
