Moore Swatches: Zaftig Lacquer – Blooms Quad


Hey Sugas!!!! I am so over ‘old man winter’. We have used at least 5 snow days this school year and that doesn’t include the weather related early dismissals and delays. There have only 2 weeks in 2019 they went for a full 5 days. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate not having to venture out in the cold, wet weather and that the school officials are looking after the safety our children but at this point I cant keep a cookie, chip or piece of fruit in the house for longer than an a day. They are constantly hungry and the little one is “sooooo bored.” Like seriously, I remember snow days when I was in school, I took advantage and loafed all day. I dare not utter the word bored for fear my mom would create work for me. Ironically, my youngest enjoys math worksheets and reading, its the other 2 that dread the mere mention of work. I guess I should appreciate that she like school and likes to keep busy, I’m sure it won’t last for long.

Nevertheless, winter weather always makes me look forward to spring and the soft, pastel color palettes used as polish inspiration. For instance, the Blooms Quad from Zaftig Lacquer is complete of shades one might see when flowers start to…. BLOOM!! At this point, I can only hope that it’s sooner rather than later.

Moore Swatches: Much Love Forever – Lovers Collection


Hey Sugas!! How about we start off the week with a “new” brand. When Jessica, owner/maker, of M.L.F Lacquer reached out to me to swatch her debut collection I was super excited because what’s better than a NEW brand launch?!

“M.L.F. Lacquer stands for Much Love Forever and was inspired by a love for colors, creativity, and nail polish. The initials are also a tribute to my daughter, Makayla, as they are her initials. She passed away from kidney cancer in 2017.”

“I will strive to release a quality product with reasonable prices and innovative colors.  My goal is always to provide top notch customer service.” ~ Jessica

Jessica Bumgardner is currently a work full time nurse, but has and is putting a lot of time and energy into launching her new business. She has a passion for helping others especially in times of trouble, helping others find the beauty in themselves and of course, nail polish. 

MLF Lacquer is a brand new, 1 women show. Her small business launched today, Monday, Feb. 4th and the debut quad, Lovers Collection, was inspired by Taylor Swift’s song You Are In Love.
