Hey everyone, I know it’s been an overwhelming couple of days with everything going on, and being born an American and living in the United States my entire life, I just wanted to make a quick note before I dive in. I do feel weird posting normally just about nails during this time, and I feel so lucky and privileged to have this hobby where I can “escape” for a little bit. And I know you all are always looking for a nice little escape sometimes as well. But there are so many resources and voices out there where we can all continually learn from as well. There’s no “escaping” from being a good ally, and that’s something that is always on in the background, even as I continue to swatch and post about nail polish. So it’ll just be a quick little note here and then we’re back to nails.
A nail blog is definitely not the space you’re going to go first for information or resources, but there is still a person behind this and in the end it’s my own opinions and feelings. And so I want to say on this page everyone is welcome and included, regardless of race, orientation, religion, or otherwise – as long as their opinions are not actively hurting others. I personally fully support the Black Lives Matter movement here, and I want to use my privilege and voice to continue to do all that I can, even if it’s just a quick comment before I post some swatches. Any comments that marginalize that movement and the feelings and those involved won’t be tolerated here, and I’ll always do my best to keep it an open community here, even as it’s just one person’s nails being shown. I’m still learning and only one person, but I know the best way to use my voice is to stop any hate and call it out, even in this small space.
That’s all, thank you for listening, and now back to our normal blogging.
We’re continuing on with our Essie love – that’s just how my schedule and swatching played out – with the summer collection! This year’s Summer release is titled ‘Bustling Bazaar’ and it’s 6 bright and bold colors that are inspired by the bazaars of Morocco.
And I bought this collection from, you guessed it, Polishpick.com. I mention the site basically every single post, because they consistently have the best prices which allow me to continually to buy collections, as well as incredibly fast and secure shipping. I go on about them so much because I genuinely love and will continue to use her services!
As I mentioned there are 6 polishes – 5 creams and 1 foil, and it’s some bright and bold and saturated colors. Let’s get right into the swatches, shall we?Read More »
