CrowsToes Orangeblooded Swatch & Review

Hi guys! Hope you all had a nice weekend, mine was good! It was nice to not have any cabinets to paint for the first time in like 2 months haha! Today I have Orangeblooded from CrowsToes to share with you! This polish was originally called "Finally...It's Hoodie Time" and it was exclusive to A Box Indied. Since A Box Indied recently stopped putting out boxes CrowsToes decided to re-release it under another name. I know some will be upset about that since it was exclusive to the box but I was pretty dark excited because I didn't buy that box and had been wanting this polish for ages!

Orangeblooded is a denim blue jelly backed with orange glitter. Its a really pretty combo and I'm so glad to finally have it! The formula was good, because of the jelly base it is sheer but it builds easily and way easy to apply. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.

CrowsToes is available at, it retails for $12. CrowsToes does their restocks now in PreSale format so its stress free to shop (which I LOVE), the next restock will probably be in the next couple of weeks!

Additional Addictions: Kitchen Renovation

Today I have my big kitchen renovation to share with you! This was a long time in the works and I am so glad to finally have it done! I've wanted to re-do my kitchen since I bought my condo but I finally had the money to start at the beginning of the year. Originally everything was supposed to happen in March, I bought all of the materials for it back then but then life decided to just be crappy so it was pushed back. Between my Grandma passing away and Degen getting badly hurt the kitchen didn't end up starting until July.

Once it started the progress was pretty quick, only a couple weeks between the old counters being ripped out and the new ones going in, the plumbing being done and the backslash going up. The longest project ended up being painting the cabinets, mostly because I decided to do them on my own so I only had the weekends to work on them.

First Impression Friday: Doctor Lacquer

Happy Friday! Anyone have fun plans for this weekend? I sure don't, now that my kitchen is done I have nothing I really need to do...I'm looking forward to relaxing a bit! This week for First Impression Friday I have a few polishes from Doctor Lacquer to share with you!

I found out about this brand in a Facebook brand and was drawn in mostly by their thermals, they have some really pretty color combos. Aside from thermals they also  have a few other nice finishes so I decided to pick up 3 different finishes to get a good feel for the brand.

I placed my order on 7/2/16 and I received it on 7/8/16, so the turn around was pretty good. I ordered during a sale and a holiday weekend so I was impressed with how fast these got to me. The polishes arrived in a bubble mailer and wrapped in bubble wrap so they were nice and protected. Doctor Lacquer offers a couple different sizes of polishes, I decided to buy minis just for the heck of it. The brushes in the minis was nice and easy to apply which I was happy about, I wouldn't hesitate to buy minis again.
