Moore Swatches: The Holo Hookup – October 2019: Fall Harvest


Hey Sugas!! It’s time to pumpkin spice things up around here because the first official day of fall/Autumn is 7 days away!!! I’ve completely fall-en in love for the Fall Harvest themed October 2019 Holo Hookup Box featuring special guest maker, Victoria from Blush Lacquer.

I know all these fall/autumn puns may be a bit corny, but the polishes included in this box are a-maize-ing!

Moore Swatches: The Polish Palette – September 2019


Hey Sugas!!! Who remembers family favorite game, Guess Who? The classic ‘go to’ game where you asked your opponent a series of questions to determine their selected player. Guess Who is great for any age for a snowed in day or just a random family game night.

The joining efforts of the Polish Palette decided to use this same strategy for the upcoming September 2019 quad. As per usual, each maker created 2 polishes but it’s up to you to guess who made which polishes.

Be sure to leave your guess in the comments.

Moore Swatches: Baroness X & Ethereal Lacquer – Sunwashed Grave Duo


Hey Sugas!!! I’m running off coffee and fumes this morning and slowly making my way through the day. I definitely have a new found appreciation and respect for working women who go back to school. This being a wife, mother, woman, student thing is not for the lighthearted, it takes a level of sacrifice , patience and dedication that I didn’t know I had…lol! But this is my dream so I’m going to see it through til the end because that which does not kill me, makes me stronger!

On to the polish…

Baroness X and Ethereal Lacquer combined their powerful forces to create the Sunwashed Grave Duo. Ethereal Lacquer found inspiration a sun washed graveyard photos while Baroness X drew from the spirits of a graveyard at twilight picture. Both stunning and definitely needed!

Moore Swatches: LynB Designs – Urban Legends Collection and September 2019 POTM


Hey Sugas!!! Before we jump into today’s post, I’d be remiss if I didn’t offer my sincerest, heartfelt condolences to those affected and/or in the path of Hurricane Dorian. Here in MD, we are only supposed to get rain and winds but that nothing compared to the lives and families direct impacted by the storm. Be safe and God Bless!

Because it is Friday, you know what that means…. Friday night lights! Today is the football season opener and I’m super pumped. Not so much about about the game but because it’s also marching band season and that means my son will be preforming! #GOTITANS!!! I’m also not officially a CHEER MOM!! Yep, my youngest turned in her leotard for pom-poms and her jr Titans squad will be preforming during the 3rd and 4th quarters alongside the high school team!

But enough of the small talk… today I have the September 2019 POTM, Virgo and the 6-piece Urban Legends Collection from LynB Designs.

Moore Swatches: Bee’s Knees Lacquer – 2nd Anniversary Release


Hey Sugas!!! Every now and then one must admit defeat. So here i am, waving the white flag, surrendering. Once again, I tried to do it all and failed, hence the late post. I really try to get posts out BEFORE the actual launch date but with the holiday and preparing myself and the kids for back to school, I totally missed the mark. So for that, I apologize. 

Nevertheless, I still want to share the 2nd Anniversary Release from Bee’s Knees Lacquer (BKL) because this brand never disappoints!! In true BKL fashion, Sarah and team have created a new 10-piece IT themed collection (Chapter 2 comes out 9/6 so it just makes sense)!! And because it’s the 2nd year, they went all out – Bioshock mystery bag overpours, new mystery bags, new scroaps and meringues, and a huge sale on all of our old polishes and bath and body products!!! Everything that won’t be new to the site will be 20% off through 9/7!!
