***THIS POST CONTAINS POLISHES THAT WERE PURCHASED WITH A BLOGGER DISCOUNT***
Hey ya’ll, it’s finally Friday! I went buckwild this month and we only halfway through. However, I am putting myself on a loooow buy after September because holiday shopping will be here before you know it and shopping for 3 kids is brutal. This won’t stop my monthly nail mail posts, oh no, I’ll still be making purchases. But back to the reason that brought you all here…#NAILMAIL!!!
I’ve bought some killer polishes, if I do say so myself and I’m ecstatic to show you all. If you haven’t seen my nail mail from August, be sure to check it out here.
Today I have:
- Fall/Winter 2016 Collection by In The Name of Polish
- Midnight Mayhem (Sept GPF Group Custom), Vampire Breath and Night of the Living Dummy from the It’s Gonna Be A Scream Collection by Glam Polish
- Dragon Heartstring from the Ollivander Wanderlore Collection by Nvr Enuff
- Summer Shenanigans and Dark Twisted Fantasies by Vapid
Let’s get started, shall we?
Fall/Winter 2016 Collection
by In The Name of Polish
Pictured l to r: top row – (Crèmes)Wasabi & Mistletoe, Special Brownies, Smashin Pumkins, Baby Sh!t and Sh!ttin Bricks. Bottom row – (Shimmers) Sugar Plum Barry from Accounting, Skinny Jeans Moose Knuckle and Sweet Turtleneck Bro
I apologize in advance for not doing actual swatches of these polishes, time just didn’t permit. If you’d like to see swatches, check out my girl, Kaylyna aka KillaKays_NailAdventure on Instagram or her full S&R on her blog. What I did have time to do was a watermarble using all the crème polishes of this collection. By now, I’m sure you realize how easily INTOP spread in the water making marbling easy and fun.
My mani featured Sugar Plum Barry from Accounting on the index finger, Skinny Jeans Moose Knuckle on the middle finger, Sweet Turtleneck Bro on the pinky and a watermarble of the cremes on the ring/accent finger. This collection is perfect for fall and a must have!!!
Midnight Mayhem (Sept GPF Group Custom), Night of the Living Dummy and Vampire Breath from the It’s Gonna Be A Scream Collection
by Glam Polish
I was trying not to over spend my polish budget so early in the month but lets face it, when Glam has new collections being released AND a phenomenal group custom, the budget goes out the door.
I did show some self restraint and only ordered Midnight Mayhem (Glam Polish Fan) Group Custom, Night of the Living Dummy and Vampire Breath from the new It’s Gonna be a Scream Collection.
Please note, you must be a member of the Glam Polish Fans on Facebook to get this polish. There is a special member code that needs to be entered to reduce the price from $120 to $12.
Overall, I loooove these polishes. The colors are perrrfect. However, they do apply a little thick so I would caution you apply in thin coats and allow plenty of drying time.

Dragon Heartstring totally pulled on my heartstrings and said ‘buy me, Krystal, buy me,’ and I have learned to go with my gut. I am so happy I did because this polish is truly amazing.
Wanda aka my Cindy/Cinderella hand, decided to make a special guess appearance for this swatch of Dragon Heartstring. Normally, I don’t buy toppers because I’m always worried about what base to use underneath. But when I saw PR sample swatches, I knew this one was a no brainer. Here is Dragon Heartstring over Zoya’s Louise.
Summer Shenanigans & Dark Twisted Fantasies
Just when you thought summer was over, Vapid releases Summer Shenanigans! The magenta and blue drew me in but the orange sealed the deal. I am so happy I decided to get this trio because it’s a limited pour and once sold out they will not come back until 2017.
I did the best I could to use all the colors in 1 mani rather than individual swatches. I like that you can wear the alone or all together.
On the index finger I have Fish Out of Water, a turquoise, jelly like polish with intense copper shimmer.
On the middle finger I have Use Your Noodle, a vibrant orange with gold, large particle shimmer.
I used Round n’ Round on the pinky. It is described as a magenta polish w a beautiful copper shimmer.
The accent finger is a fan brush nail using all the polishes.
I have missed out on a lot of Vapids in the past as I recently became more involved in the indie polish world in the last 9 months. Many of the older ones that I have fallen in love with are now HTF. Every once in awhile prayers are answered and those that are HTF, are re-released. That was my experience with Dark Twisted Fantasies (DTF). I longed for the day this beauty would be mine. I searched high and low but no one was destashing it. Then, Krys announced it was coming back and the I heard angels sing.
Would you look at this beautiful color. Yes, add it to the list of must haves from Vapid. If you miss this, you will only blame and kick yourself later for missing it.
What goodies have you or do you plan on buying this month?
