On the downside, some of these colors were very limited edition. But I will comment on her post along the way if need be. I'll put my comments in red so you know it's me. But now without further adeau let the Scandy begin!
I hope to make Feel Me Up part of our permanent line. It is just a timing and financial issue
right now. Once I can figure out where to fit it in, I will bring it back!
BlackOut- I can see why Maria didn't want to sell her whole stash of
this in the sale. I don't do black polish, but this slate grey is
This one will definitely be coming back - I just don't know when. Hopefully sooner than later!
This is my all time favorite basic color! It's a creme even though in this photo it shows some
shimmer. Ange obviously has an amazing camera and photography skills. I can sometimes
Tied Up- This is another I would have bought for the name, but the
cornflower blue jelly had me chomping at the bit before I ever saw the
name. I'm quite picky about the blues I will wear. They either have
to be dark and VERY jelly or any finish in the cornflower area.
Same as the other two. This one will probably come back sometime in the summer.
I guess timing is everything right?
Now, I know you've all been recently inundated with photos on blogs of
the new Super Powers collection, but I have to get in on this. I
pre-ordered two whole sets of this collection. Clairvoyant and Power
Thief were screaming my name. (I was one of the unfortunates who
found out Unicorn Puke was on sale *after* it sold out lol) so I made
darn sure I didn't miss Clairvoyant.
I'm pretty sure Maria is using some kind of Super Power, because my
first full manicure from this set was neither of the ones I was most
excited about. Once I swatched Mind Control and saw that purple
glitter shimmer I went nutso. So, either Maria is really using mind
control, or this nasty weather has me going for colors way darker than
I tend to, either way I'm smitten.
Sadly, I do have one polish that didn't have me head over heels: Time
Traveler. I know this one is going to be a crowd favorite, but in
order for me to not feel self conscious I need my dark blues super
jelly. Like I said, I'm very weird about blues.
Ok, so there are my swatches, but what I really really wanted to talk
to you all about is Get it On. Y'all this stuff is the business.
Part of the reason I'm no longer blogging is my nail quality went to
the outhouse this past year. My health went wacky and my medicine
made my nails just complete and utter horsecrap. My beloved (and
ridiculously expensive) Launchpad wasn't even helping my nails. Most
of the time they were filed down to the quick from March until
recently. That all turned around when I got some of Maria's basecoat.
My nails are clearly not what they were last year when I was blogging,
but when you consider that at Halloween, my nails were filed down to
the quick (for the last time to remove a bit more damage) I think you
all will agree that it has given my nails a complete turnaround. I'm
still struggling with damage on my thumbnail, some peeling and whatnot
that I'm not sure will ever remedy unless I change medicines, but if
that's the worst problem I have you better believe I'll thank my lucky
stars and continue to hoard Get it On.
I want to thank Maria so much for the offer to guest post. I've
really missed blogging and talking to y'all but I'm just not up for
the committment of full time blogging. Walking away was hard to do, I
felt like I was letting you all down, but at the moment it was my only
option. Hopefully I'll be seeing you all on the flipside, and hurry
up and buy those special edition colors so I can talk Maria into
making them permanent!
I have to say, I interact with some Culties via email, and I get many compliments
on my polish and each time it is like the first time. I get so excited to hear what people
think. It pushes me forward on the tough days of making this business a reality. But reading
Ange's post, I really almost cried. I loved her blog, I was so sad to see it go. I love her
honesty and her sense of humor. So from the bottom of my heart - thank you Ange
for guest posting on my blog! I hope to share this space with you again soon!
