Friday Finds - Week of 9/26

Hey everybunny!
Can you believe it's already been a week? I can't! I've been prepping a new display for this craft show on Saturday, so everything this week has gone by in a whoosh!
Since I haven't had much leisure time, this week is a little short, but none the less, I've got some awesome finds so let's get right into it!

These soaps , oh my goodness! According to her update they *should* be available today, and you can find them in her shop HERE. I especially love the pumpkin for fall, but the other designs are so cute for any time of the year! You won't believe her vast array of SCENTS either!

KKCenterHK - Leopard Water Decal Review

Hey everybun
Happy, Tuesday!
You must excuse my late post, because hot damn is this semester hard. The tests! The quizzes! O' Athena, spare me some smarts!
Anyways, enough with the dramatics, let's get it on...To the review..

These darn water decals have been sitting, taunting me for months. Why? You ask? Well ,the first time I attempted to put them on, I managed to get them off the white backing, but for some reason there was an added plastic backing between the decal and the white backing. 
I hadn't figured this out until recently, and every time I'd attempt to use these, they just wouldn't work.
Finally, I FORCED two of them off, after ruining 4, I decided to just stick to a simple mani.

Rainbow Skye Lacquer - Swatch and Review

Hey everybun!
I debated hard, whether or not to post these swatches today, because I'm sure none of you have ever heard of Rainbow Skye Lacquer and there's a very good reason for that!
Let me explain..
I'm a part of an awesome Indie Nail Polish making group on Facebook and with that, I'm also a part of their Indie polish exchange. Well, the group isn't JUST for indie polish makers, it's also for indie hobby makers who either only make polishes for themselves or for their family and friends. 
I received 4 polishes from one of these types of makers, therefore NONE of these polishes are on the market and NONE have been released to the public.
Well then why post this polish you ask? BECAUSE THEY'RE AMAZING!
The owner of Rainbow Skye has said that she's been thinking of starting to offer her polishes to the public and hopefully this blog post will push her to do so!
So, let's begin with one of the polishes I received, which is very halloween-y!

Craft Show Tips for Indie Nail Polish and Cosmetic Companies

Hey everybun! 
In an indie nail polish making group I'm a part of on Facebook, the question was asked if anyone had any tips for craft shows. I've done a total of four craft shows now, and while I'm by no means an expert, I feel like I have some knowledge worth sharing when it comes to being an indie nail polish maker in the craft show world.
There are plenty of guides for craft shows in general, including lists on what to bring, what to expect and even more lists on what you should bring and what you should expect.
The information in this is post is in regards to cosmetics and though I do speak a lot about nail polish, that doesn't mean I forgot about you soap, eye shadow and lipstick people!

          Let's begin!

Perfect Fall Matte! Finger Paints - Film Noir Swatch and Review

Hey everybun!
I know my blogs been sort of dead lately, but lots of exciting things have been happening in my part of the nail world, so forgive me!
I have so many cool announcements coming up for this next week, and I'm bursting with excitement!
Before I jump ahead of myself, let's take a step back and discuss the impending doom that is Fall.
Don't get me wrong, I love fall in it's own way, but summer's my JAM and I'm sad to see it go so fast.
With that, I must admit that I'm ALL up into the new shades for fall, and I believe that
I found the PERFECT matte fall shade, all by accident!

Happy final hours of Labor day! Did you all eat as much as I did? I still have so many leftovers, ima be eating them for days!
A while ago I was apart of an Indie maker exchange and the theme was purple. The other day I got my polish in the mail and OHMYGOODNESS I put it on right away. Thank you so much Live Life Polished for this lovely that I used as my base called Grape-Aide.
