Cherry Pie & Orange Marmalade


    Good evening, Dear Reader!

    I owe you an apology.  I've neglected you.  I'm sorry.  I've gotten many concerned emails, and all is well.  I've simply been very busy this week.

    Just now I had some time, and was reminded by Scrangie of a collection I'd started to take pictures of for you about a week and a half ago, but never completed: China Glaze's Summer Days Collection.  It's a collection with plusses and minuses, which is why I haven't finished it yet.

    On the up side, the colors are striking in the bottle, and they have a strong glass fleck shimmer that I really like a lot.  On the down side, they're pretty dang sheer and leave bad VNL, so I have to use one coat of Milani Soft White under each to swatch them.  Sound high maintenance?  It is.  A little to high maintenance for me, to be honest.  

    The end result is really stunning, I think, but it's more effort than the average mani.  Here are the two I've stached so far, Cherry Pie and Orange Marmalade.

     



     


    And of course, your Nubar reminder still stands through the 31st...
    I'm going to keep reminding you of this for the next month, Dear Reader, just so no one misses out.  Don't forget that Nubar loves you, too!  Until March 31st, they have a coupon code that's good for 20% off orders of $50 or more on www.bynubar.com, and they have free shipping over $75 (after the coupon).  The code is nlphle2050, and it's here just in time for the release of their Coral and Cleopatra Collections, which just recently became available.  Have a good haul and enjoy a good break on the price! 

    That's the update for now, Dear Reader.  My hope is that things will slow down a bit this week, so we'll see more of each other.  Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
