I hope today finds you well.
Here is an amazing polish I can share with you, reppin' the NORCAL. Here I have one fun coat of Sonoma County Gazette by Sonoma Nail Art. She is a blogger/indie seller from my neck of the woods : ) I love supporting local small business people, don't you?
I am splashing this polish all over the headlines today! Have you red between the lines? The news is good!
This polish looks GOOOOD! It has so many possibilities for layering over different colors. Tan is my next one to try, so it reminds me of a US government linoleum post office floor from the fifties, a bit specific, I am aware. US government vintage building color schemes are very comforting to me for some reason.
This polish reminds me of the colors of my speedometer in my car, with the black white and red. I love it. I got several compliments from people I met during my day! I love when that happens, don't you? : D
You can see the interesting mixture of glitters, like the interesting mixture of contributors to the Sonoma County Gazette, a progressive local paper written by the readers.
This polish is great in most every way! It could use a topcoat to help the lines stay put, but I had fun playing with the taglines.
I put this polish over a recent China Glaze LE Collection fall polish. I will do a review of that polish by itself soon. I wanted to get this glitter posted as soon as possible! I don't know why I waited so long to try it!
In response to recent oppressive statements regarding personal grooming directly aimed at nail polish bloggers in particular, I have posted a clarification of purpose and philosophy of my personal beauty diary/blog, and the rights I lay claim to in my creative works and publications herein. I post the contents of my declaration below and have made a new tab to keep it handy. I invite your thoughtful and constructive feedback! : )
I hope you have a super day.
