Day 43: Funky Fingers nail polish haul

Today's post is ALL BOUT THE amazing Funky Fingers nail polish from the Five below store. Don't bother trying to find these polishes anywhere but EBAY, Five Below locations, and random Instagram destashes where people are selling them off. Other than that, its seems Five Below has exclusive ownership of this brand and only sell it to their stores. PLUS, and here's a downer, you CANNOT shop at Five Below online. Nope! They have a website but only so you can see some items and find store locations. They claim to have over 300 locations across the United states, so if there's one even remotely close ( less than an hour or so away) GO!!!! REally, you must, IF YOU love great deals, AMAZING POLISH and cool accessories for phones, tablets, etc. ITS WORTH going.

The nearest store to me is almost 45 minutes away but I was determined to go and so i did, on my birthday. lol. it was THE BEST birthday I have ever had BTW. Not just because I went to FIVE BELOW and bought OVER 15 polishes, plus some amazing pins but it sure helped to sweeten the deal. :)

Here are some pictures I took of SOME of the polishes I purchased at Five Below. They sell them usually at $3 bucks each or 3 for 6$ bucks when their having a deal.

1. Berried Treasure
2. Like Clockwork
3. Mint Choco Chip

 1. Unicorn Farts
 2. Love Park 

Next week, i will post a complete funky fingers swatch of these polishes. So stay tuned for those. 

 Is this not polish HEAVEN?!!! i Seriously could LIVE HERE. You think the room and board fee is affordable? lol

As always,

Have a grand day and DON'T forget to Glaze!

Day 41: Indie Nail Polish - Rainbow Fish from Backwoods Nails

Hello fellow nail lovers!!! Today's post is a COMPLETE PICTURE REVIEW of a wonderful hidden gem in the growing indie nail polish world: Backwoodsnails I am in direct communication with the creator of these polishes and was given this sample to swatch and GIVE a complete review.

The name of this polish is RAINBOW FISH after the very popular childrens book in the 1990's.


  • Blue holo like glitter polish
  • Most sparkly polish YOU HAVE EVER seen!!
  • Fast drying formula. I mean really FAST! 
  • Will make people notice everywhere you go
  • Affordable price. In the indie world, Backwoods nails is one of the MORE AFFORDABLE polish makers there is. 
  • Easy to purchase via ETSY
  • Wonderful seller and customer support

The only con is not having more of this great polish!
I will be buying my own FULL SIZE version very soon.

 Macro shot of this darling baby!! Doesnt it look like fish scales?

Hope you enjoy this post!!! Comment below please. and be sure to check out BACKWOODSNAILS

Day 40: Nail Mail indie polish maker

Hi everyone! Today is a very special post
 To showcase a very special cause: SUPPORT FOR SMALL BUSINESS and indie product makers.

The Story:

As I was coming home from an aromatherapy essential oil class, I received some nail mail. All you polish lovers know how wonderful it is too receive nail mail and seeing mine instantly put a smile on my face. :) 

So I open the mail and I receive, not only beautiful indie polishes but a thoughtful, personal note from the creator herself.

View the pic below to see what the note said.

This is why folks, it's IMPORTANT to support local and small businesses. It does the AMERICAN community no good to give our 💵💵 to rich people who are getting richer and outsourcing jobs. The ECONOMY we live in needs the help of local, USA invested and handmade businesses to uplift us out of this slump.

Ask yourself: "If I buy this, will it help put food on the table for a family here on our US SOIL?

If it won't, perhaps saving a few extra bucks and investing In local products is the BETTER INVESTMENT.

As always, have a Grand day and don't forget to Glaze!
