Moore Swatches: September 2019 Polish Pickup (PPU) and Indie Pickup (IPU) – Magic & Alchemy


Hey Sugas!!! I wasn’t sure how September Polish/Indie Pickup would top itself after last months wild ride – get it…??? Wild ride… carnival ride?!?!?!? Oh never mind.

In order to top last month, makers would need to be magicians. Lucky for us, they all have a spell or 2 up their sleeve to create such wondrous creations inspired by Magic & Alchemy. This topic is not something is my wheelhouse so I’ll just hush up now and let y’all take a look.

Moore Swatches: Northern Nail Polish – Fall 2019 Collection and Thermal Trio


Hey Sugas!! It’s time for a “new to me” brand!!! Today our featured maker and brand is KC Sprinberg from Northern Nail Polish,

In 2013, KC Springberg created her Michigan based nail polish brand, Northern Nail Polish because of the possible health issues associated with nail polish, ie exposure to carcinogens and other chemicals. Bit as KC says, “one should never have to sacrifice health for beauty,” KC began exploring safer options of making nail polish because her love for polish was to much to quit using it all together. 

 Fast-forward to 2017 when KC began selling at local shows and to present day with  full line of polishes with shades and hues perfect for any occasion or day of the week!

Today, I am excited to share the upcoming 10-piece Fall 2019 Collection and Thermal Trio releasing Sunday, September 1st!

Moore Swatches: September Makers Dozen – Birds


Hey Sugas!!! Last month the Maker’s Dozen was inspired by tropical marine life. This month, the table have turned and all polishes are inspired by our high-flying, feathered neighbors in the sky – BIRDS!  

New to Maker’s Dozen???? Here are the details:

How will the box be run?

The Makers Dozen is a collaboration between 12 makers with a different guest maker joining monthly. Polishes will be sold on maker’s individual web sites. Clicking on the brands name below will provide a direct link to the makers site. 

Who are the founding brands?

The founding makers are:

  • Olivia T. (Copacetic Cosmetics)
  • Jenn D (NeVerMind Polish)
  • Jannalyn M (LYNB Designs)
  • Sacha J (Jior Couture)
  • Angie C/N (Sassy Pants Polish)
  • Sabrina B (Zombie Claw Polish)
  • Trish R (PI Colors)
  • Anetress M (Baby Girl Lacquer)
  • Alicia C (Leesha’s Lacquers)
  • Cynthia D (Alter Ego)
  • Simone V (Ms Sparkle)
  • Lisette V/J (Inspirrations)

What is the frequency?

We will be doing this monthly. So 13 polishes released each month.


The pricing is set my each individual maker depending on their own preferences.


40 bottles! Because of this cap polishes may sell out super quick, but there’s no cut off date. If they are still available in the next monthly they will still be able to be purchased.

How is Makers Dozen different from other boxes that are currently available?

Makers Dozen is so much different, and it’s really exciting. From day 1 to now the idea has changed so much and it’s a great thing. We will be releasing exclusive, numbered polishes so it’ll be exciting to get your hands on works of art! We will have 13 drawings in our group to allow members to win free shipping, discounts, etc. The makers are so excited to be engaging with the members I really think it will be something special. Another thing that sets us apart is that each month will be a rainbow of colors! We all rotate colors each month so every month there will be 13 different colored polishes!

Why ‘Maker’s Dozen’?

Makers Dozen was a name that the group came up with together, a play on bakers dozen, and it fits so perfectly!

Moore Swatches: The Indie Love & Light Project


Hey Sugas!!! We can all testify that sometimes life can be…. hectic, overwhelming, chaotic, frustrating, etc. And in a world where we have to deal with people daily, compounded with our own personal “stuff”, for a lack or better words, life can become messy, unkind, unpleasant and downright, complicated.

Heather of Heather’s Hues decided to collaborate with indie makers and create The Indie Love & Light Project (ILL). The main idea is to radiate love and light focusing on 3 main areas: positivity, charity and random acts of kindness (RAOK). Let’s break it down….

  • Positivity – products/items are made motivated by inspirational messages
  • Charity – a portion of the profits will be donated to a collectively selected charity
  • RAOK – select items are purchased and sent to “someone else” 

ILL kicks off Friday, August 23rd so be sure to join the Facebook Fan Group and/or IG (links below) for more details. For the month of August, donations raised from the Charity items will be donated to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation.

Today I am pleased to share 2 brands that are participating, Femme Fatale Cosmetics and Red-Eyed Lacquer.
