Moore Swatches: Shinespark Polish – Radical Flakies Collection


Hey Suga!!! Today I have the upcoming collection from Shinespark, the Radical Flakies Collection. Out of curiosity, I looked up the word ‘radical’ and one definition is, “extreme, especially as regards change from accepted or traditional forms”. This really stuck out to me because this collection embodies that very meaning. In addition to that, the term ‘rad’ or ‘radical’ was made popular in the 80’s to describe something that was awesome. The 80’s was also very well-known for neons.

So if you take all that info, I gave you, what might one conceive this collection featured???

Yep, you guess it! NEONS!!! But not any type of neons! Remember… they are radical and the collection name also had ‘flakes’ in it?  These polishes are jelly based as filled with holo micro glitters. See, told ya’… radical!

Moore Swatches: Colors by Llarowe (CbL) – 24K Magic April 2018 HHC


“Twenty four karat magic in the air
Head to toe so player
Uh, look out!”

Now that I’ve got you singing, let’s talk quickly about the extremely talented artist, Bruno Mars. Born October 8, 1985 and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, into a family of musicians, Peter Gene Hernandez aka Bruno Mars, is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and dancer.

Bruno Mars has brought us hit after hit including, “Grenade”, “The Lazy Song”, “Marry You”, “Count On Me”, “Finesse” and of course, “24K Magic”

I was so excited when Leah Ann of CbL decided to use 24K Magic by Bruno Mars as her inspiration to create her April custom for Hella Hademade Creations (HHC) formally Hella Holo Customs.

Starting this month, April, HHC has done a complete revamp of the way they bring us their group customs. Each month at least 6 makers will make 1 polish based on the theme they have chosen. So you can bet that we will be seeing more classics, from CbL and Bruno Mars. Sales will run the 14th-21st of each month and to cut down on shipping, polishes will be sold from the Hella Handmade Creations online store.

Moore Swatches: LynB Designs – Let’s Be Frank Part 1


Hey Sugas! Where are all of my diehard Lisa Frank fans at??? I’m talking posters on the wall, folders in the trapper keeper, pencils and notebooks in the backpack fans. Like your whole entire back to school experience revolved around all things Lisa Frank kinda fans. If you were born in the 80s and raised in the 90s then your hands should be up! That’s right raise those hands even if your sitting in a cubicle at work or in the doctors office at an appointment, raise them high. Don’t be ashamed…lol! 

Lisa Frank was all about bright, bold, in your face colors and animals! Even the children of today know about Lisa Frank as the brand has continued to blaze an iconic trail.

Today I have the 1st of the 2 part collection, Lets Be Frank from LynB Designs. The entire set will feature 10 polishes, 5 releasing on April 13th, which I have for you today and the other 5 releasing April 27th which I will have up in the upcoming weeks. 

So sit back, and put on your N’Sync cassette tape in your Walkman as we take a stroll down memory lane.

Moore Swatches: Paint It Pretty Polish – Criminal Minds Collection


Hey Sugas! Here we are… Friday! TGIF!!! I found this on IG and it said,

“Dear Friday,

I’m so glad we are back together. I’m sorry you had to see me with Monday-Thursday, but I promise I was thinking of you the whole time.”

This totally mad me smile and gave me quite the chuckle as I thought about how true it is.

Today I have the upcoming quad collection from Paint It Pretty Polish. Criminal Minds is inspired by the show, Criminal Minds. The cases of the F.B.I. Behavioral Analysis Unit (B.A.U.), an elite group of profilers who analyze the nation’s most dangerous serial killers and individual heinous crimes in an effort to anticipate their next moves before they strike again.

The show is currently in its 13th season and although the cast and characters have changed over the years, the most notable ones are those highlighted in this quad, Derek Morgan played by Shemar Moore, Spencer Reid played by Matthew Gray and Penelope Garcia played by Kirsten Vangsness 

Enjoy… Keep Reading!!

Moore Swatches: Pahlish – Ponyville Collection and Desert Bloom Duo


I’m not gonna lie, today’s featured collection from Pahlish had me feeling…very… seasoned…lol! When I realized that I had no idea about the new My Little Ponies I had to call in reinforcements, my daughters. They kindly explained to me that the “new” ponies are an upgraded version of what I used to watch in the “old’n days”… seriously, who are they calling old?!

Nevertheless, this 6 piece collection of flakie crellies and holo flakies /multichrome shimmer did bring a since of nostalgia as I remembered watching the cartoon on TV and collecting the ponies. The Ponyville Collection is an amazing representation of the cartoon classic that is a hit no matter the generation.

As for the Desert Bloom Duo, these polishes display the truly beauty that lives in what is most times considered a desolate place.Enjoy…
