Essie Ruby Slippers Giveaway

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    I recently had the good fortune of running into Essie Ruby Slippers and Essie Glass Slippers, and I got them yesterday.  I was really thrilled to find them because I had and really loved Ruby Slippers, but it got lost, and since it's hard to find I figured I'd never see it again.  But then I came across it, and while I was at it, I got an extra to give to you.  I'll tell you more about that part at the end.

    Essie Ruby Slippers is a red glitter in red polish, but it's an exceptionally good rendition of it. Definitely top two of red glitters for me, and only top two because I'm afraid to commit to a favorite.  In two coats, it's totally opaque, even, and loaded with varying shades of red and a bit of orange-ish glitter.  It does use up a lot of top coat though.  I applied it late yesterday, hoping to catch the last of the sunlight for a picture (no such luck), and I used two coats of Poshe on it.  Several hours later, it was bumpy again, so I added one coat of Konad top coat because it's the thickest thing I have, and another of Poshe.  Now it's smooth.

    Here's a closer view of the glitter:

    See how nicely the different colors of glitter show through?  It seems like the base is the perfect opacity for coverage without hiding the glitter, which is a rarity.  This is one fabulous polish.

    So, I was telling you I picked up an extra to give to you... I thought it would be a nice Valentine's Day thing to get.  I figured we'd just go the usual route, a random drawing open to everyone with the only restriction being one entry per person - no other rules.  In the entry form, you don't need to use your real name, and the names on the entries won't show up here.  The only reason your email address would ever be used is to notify you that you've won, and I'll be taking entries for two weeks.  I think that's everything - I'm not great at remembering the detail stuff.  Here's the entry form, so have at it and good luck!


    That's it for today, Dear Reader.  Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
