***Press Sample***

Tis the season where I have no idea what team is who - except the Hawks, of course.  

Yeah, That's Right - I Have a Holo Hawks Logo On My Rear Windshield :D  Courtesy of Fairytale Finish <3

I proudly represent the 12th Man here in Phoenix - and I've seen lots of others down here, too, so I'm not alone!!

So you can imagine my excitement when Pretty Beautiful asked me to swatch some of her new Football Frenzy Collection, and two of the polishes were SEAHAWKS.  HAWK YEAH!!  

Let's get down to some swatches already!  Please note that in all the photos, I am wearing two coats plus topcoat.

First up is the Auburn colors: Iron Bowl 




Iron Bowl is a gorgeous deep navy blue jelly packed with orange glitters and a subtle holographic shimmer.  It's divine, and I love it!!  It's so squishy!!

The second polish in the Auburn Duo is "War Eagle:"




War Eagle is a bright orange with a gold shimmer and orange glitters throughout.  It is really fun, and outside of football, it is the *perfect* fall/Halloween orange :D

Next duo is for the Broncos.  The first is: "No Fly Zone"




No Fly Zone is a fantastic blue polish with a rainbow of metallic flakies and a gorgeous blue shimmer.  This is my second favorite polish of all the duos sent to me - it's just beautiful!  

The second polish of the Broncos Duo: "Orange Crush"




Orange Crush is a super fun crelly packed with various sized orange and blue glitters, as well as a beautiful orange shimmer.  As crellies go, this is defnitely in my top five - application was so smooth and the glitters cooperated - even the BAR GLITTERS.  Love it!

And finally we have the Seahawks Duo!  First up: "Legion of Boom"




Y'all know I love me some green polish.  So imagine how much I love this one :D  Legion of Boom is a fantastic bright, almost neon green packed with flakies and a fantastic blue glitter shimmer.  I LOVE it - this is my favorite in the whole collection.  My fingers GLOWED!  

And the second polish of the Seahawks Duo is: "12th Man"




12th Man is a super fun glitter topper packed with various blue, green, yellow, white, and flakie glitters.  It has great coverage in just two coats, and for the most part the glitters didn't need any extra encouragement to fall into place.  I am wearing 2 coats on my pointer and pinky fingers, but I sponged it on my middle and ring fingers in order to get more coverage.  It's a very unique glitter topper in all the good ways :)

And of course...I painted the Seahawks logo ^_^


So where can you purchase these?  These and the rest of the Football Frenzy Collection launch today at 7pm CST, and you can find them here:

What do you think of these three team duos?  Would love to hear your thoughts below!

Polishes were sent to me by the maker in exchange for photos and an honest review.

Supermoon Lacquer "I Am Cannibal" Collection

***Press Sample***

Posting is going to be a bit sporadic, but I appreciate you sticking around!  The long and short of it is that I am now solo parenting while the hubs works out of state for long bursts of time.  It's pretty much military living without the moving around so much and with better pay.  It's rough, especially with school season starting (we homeschool), but I'm still going to make it a point to carve out time to post at least twice a week.  Thanks for hanging out, you lovely people you!

Now let's get down to the ridiculously awesome collection I have to show you todayyyyyyyy.

BEHOLD!


Supermoon Lacquer has come out with a Kesha-inspired collection called "I Am Cannibal" and it is *glorious*!!!  Rather than talk about it let's just get to the swatches because DAYUM.

Please Note: ALL are shown in 2 coats with topcoat.  They are ALL opaque in 1-2 coats depending on how thick you apply your polish.  

"And You'll Be A Goner"



I like to call this one an a**hole polish to photograph.  In real life, it's a lovely lilac purple with a stunning blue shimmer and a smidgen of holo.  On camera, it's periwinkle.  No, it's purple.  No, it's a light purple.  WHAT THE FUDGE.  So if my skin looks a little funkay, it's because I made these photos as color accurate as possible to what the actual polish looks like versus what my lying camera tried to tell me it looked like.  

"Boys For Breakfast (And Lunch)"




*wipes drool from chin* You want a deep vampy blue with a purple shimmer?  You got it in this.  There's so much more to it than I could ever explain here.  It's just one of those polishes :D  Now initially, there was a funky formula issue with about 20% of this polish that went out to us bloggers - some of the pigment settled to the bottom of the bottle.  With a hardcore shake-a-thon it was fine and completely mixed.  So, the maker is offering both the sinky and a reformulated version of this to purchase - the sinkier one is cheaper, in case you wanna save a bit because you don't mind the extra shaking.

"Carnivore Animal"




Hands down - my favorite in the whole collection.  This one is a jaw dropper.  Rich chocolaty brown, intense holo, and a sexy red shimmer.  It is PERFECT for Fall!  Absolutely gorgeous.  Mmm Mmm GOOD!

"I Warned You"




Creamy bright orange-y coral with flakies and a subtle holo effect - this one is super fun and bright, and a nice alternative to a pink, if pink isn't your thang or doesn't like your skintone.  It's a nice color that I feel can be worn year-round, too.  Pair it with Carnivore Animal and you have a WOWZA mani on your hands (oh, pun completely intended there).

"Now I'm Gonna Eat You, Fool!"




You know how much I love me some blues.  This is a nice creamy blue with flakies and a subtle holo effect.  I think this would look GREAT in a winter mani - it's such a versatile blue!

"The Hunger"




I don't know how to describe this one properly - it's another polish like Boys for Breakfast (and Lunch).  No matter what I say, I can't do it justice in words.  It's a nice berry purple (it's pulling a little more grape purple in the photos, but it leans more towards a raspberry purple in real life) and it has a lovely violet shimmer with a holo effect.  If you love purple, you need this polish - absolutely NEED.

"The Kinda Guy I'd Stalk In School"




This is a lovely creamy teal/turquoise color, and I love that this has a bit more flakies in it than the other creams.  It's really beautiful, and another great one for Fall, because it's color, but calmed down, you know?  Love it.

"You Better Run"




Talk about a fun bubblegum pink!  This is so cute, and has a lovely subtle purple-to-red shimmer with it.  Great color!!

And I did a thing.  Crazy thing.  I paired polishes from the Ready to Launch collection with this one, and did some art with nail vinyls :D

"And You'll Be A Goner" with "Polar Lights"

"Boys For Breakfast (And Lunch)" with "Cosmic Dust"

"Carnivore Animal" with "Star Cloud"

"I Warned You" with "Galactic Halo"

"Now I'm Gonna Eat You, Fool!" with "Stellar Stream"

"The Hunger" with "Rosette Nebula"

"The Kinda Guy I'd Stalk In School" with "Tidal Disruption"

"You Better Run" with "Pistol Star"

Alright, DETAILS!

You can get the I Am Cannibal Collection (or the ones that struck your fancy over others) on Thursday, September 1st, at 6pm CST at the Howling Boutique website - that's the creator.  Here are all the linkages for you:

Obviously I want to know what you think, and which one is your fav, so leave me some love <3
