Hello, hello! 4 days in a row of posting, it's almost unprecedented for me! I'm sure I'll lapse back to irregularity soon, so enjoy it while you can.
The polish I have for you today is a special one. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I lost a very good friend in November. Over the last few weeks, we "Chicago Girls" have been helping Shannon's parents clean out her condo and go through her things. Shannon had a love of fingernail polish, not as crazy as mine, but above average for sure. While organizing her place, we came across her stash, which I have now inherited. I've decided to do a weekly swatch or nail art with her polishes as a sort of tribute. Her taste in polish differed a lot from my own, so there are quite a few colors that I would not have purchased for myself...it'll be good to try something different and I think she'd like that they're being used.
So, my first SMD Stash manicure is with Revlon's Popular. Take a look:
....more after the jump....
Popular is a soft baby pink polish with silver hex and micro glitters mixed in. It is the epitome of "girly". I used 3 coats in these photos and I thought the coverage was good, as well as the formula itself. I had a hard time getting used to this color on me, it's just so far from what I normally wear. After about a day of wear, it did grow on me although I do think it's a color better suited to a darker skin tone. It was fun to try something different in any case.
Here's another look:
I think this has some great nail art possibilities for future manicures.
As a reminder, my very first giveaway is still open. I only have a couple of folks signed up so far, so that means your odds of winning a pretty darn good at this point. So come on over and sign up! Thanks so much for reading!
