I’m so behind! I’m so sorry 😦
My 10 day absence from the internet world (aside from Instagram and Tumblr reblogging) happened because I got sick, and then work and school and my social life took over for a while. I also had a million things I needed to photograph. So here I am, back at it and with a few holiday things to show you.
All of the holiday things I buy will be tagged with the label “Holiday 2012”, so you can simply click on that label, either in the side bar or on the label at the end of each post and it’ll take you to everything holiday related for this year 😀 I tag and label all my posts, by the way, so for example if you wanted to see every post I’ve ever written about Essie (with more than just a passing sentence) then just click on the label.
Just a little teaser of what I have coming up: Revlon Holiday, Sinful Colors Holiday, China Glaze Holiday and a TON of indie brand polishes, and a video that features all of those things.
Today though I’ll go ahead and show you the Essie items I’ve bought recently.
Essie’s holiday collection this year is called the Leading Lady collection. It’s a six color collection, which is typically the size of Essie’s collections, and features 2 glitters and 4 cremes. I guess this is technically their winter collection, but I consider anything released in late october, november or december as a company’s holiday collection.
The 4 cremes in the collection are colors that I didn’t really need, but there was a lighter red, midtoned red, blue, and turquoise. I figured I have enough cremes in all of those colors so I didn’t buy them. Not even the turquoise.
I did buy the two glitters though since they seemed totally worth buying. I can never get enough glitter lol!
Wrapped In Rubies is a dark shimmery red with gold shimmer mixed in as well. It’s very holiday like so I picked it up with every intention of using it with either Leading Lady or Beyond Crazy. Wrapped In Rubies is opaque in 2 coats.
Watermelon is a bright pink creme. It’s a reddish-pink, but doesn’t look as red as the swatch below. It’s opaque in 2 coats and a dream to work with.
