|Blurry pic, but these are my beautiful cousins! Can you imagine growing up around so many beautiful women? This isn't half of them!|
Anyway, come Monday I knew I had to get my but back to work on the office and checking FB and Twitter and responding to emails. Well I made it as far as responding to emails. I went to the office worked for about 15 minutes and just couldn't hack it. I came home with every intention of taking a nap, but then decided that would be a bad idea because then I would be up all night. Instead I layed there perusing through my Lucky magazine, did my nails, and then layed there some more like a bump on a log. Oh I did get up long enough to get out and do groceries and ended up with a massive headache! See that's what you get for being responsible! LOL!
Today I was on fire! I was running around working on the office, responding to emails this morning and I even did a blog post that is now MIA! What the...!!! So here I sit again after painting for hours on end all achy, wanting to play on Twitter and Facebook with you guys and instead re-writing my post! DOH! (By play I totally mean work if Juan is reading this. I get to say that FB & Twitter is work! Love it!!)
SO here goes post take 2:
The sale will be here on Saturday!! One day only! Saturday! Saturday! Saturday! (I couldn't resist - make sure you read it like the car commercials say it!) So the sale is an chance for you to get 3 of our colors at the amazing price of just $5!! WAHOO! (I think I said 2 last time, but I think we should stick with 3 like last time, don't you?) The only difference is that it is a limited selection of colors that will be on sale for $5. Just the ones that sold out during the last sale that are now back in stock. The colors included in the sale are Cruisin' Nude, Living Water, Let Me Fly, Hypnotize Me and Iconic. I think I'm missing one....Enigmatic! How could I forget! So you can pick any 3 (or less or more) and we will give you $5 off of up to 3 of these colors!
But wait there's more! I planned on bringing Feel Me Up back in November with a Fall collection. Then I accidentally re-ordered it when I re-ordered these colors. You would think that when I received the polish match samples to approve, it would have been a red flag, but nope, I approved it again. Then when I received the pre-ship sample, I approved it yet again! So now I have Feel Me Up on hand! I can't possibly leave it sitting here til November! That just doesn't seem fair, so I will release it on Saturday! WAHOO! And no we are not including it in the $5 sale. (I say that now, but I know you guys are going to brow beat me until I include it in the sale! LOL!) Oh frick, OK fine, I'll include it in the sale, might as well just give you what you want and be ahead of the game! :) For those who don't know, this is a 2 (maybe 3) coat yellow, depending on how you apply polish and how long your nails are. It is a cross between a jelly and a creme. The end result is a creme yellow the color of a buttercup. (Still working on that perfect 1 coat yellow)
Not done yet... We have one more color to add to the mix. Nevermore was supposed to launch with a series of fun top coats. The top coat ingredients have been delayed by the supplier and Nevermore is ready. So I am going to add that too! A one coat true black. I can't tell you how amazing this color is. It is AMAZING! Best black ever if I do say so myself! And yes of course, I will include that in the $5 sale too!
Now the not so fun news. Iconic is a bit different. We had an ingredient go away and had to reformulate it. It is within what the lab calls a 5% visual approval. Which means to the layman there is no difference. But to those of you like me, there is. It still is amazing and beautiful, but the shimmer had to change resulting in a more intense shimmer. So all in all not a bad thing. My friend whose favorite color is Iconic said the new version looks like her original bottle. So perhaps its just me who can see it. But I doubt it. Here is a quick swatch of the two. The original will never come back, but the updated version is still amazing and really within a 5% difference, which isn't much at all. I had to grapple with the decision of just discontinuing it forever or reformulating it. I went with the reformulation option. I have debated on posting about it since the change is so minor, but I would never be able to sleep at night if I didn't mention it. So I am mentioning it. Not only that, but those of you who wanted more shimmer, you will be loving the newer version!
|The new version is on the left and the original is on the right. The only change is the ingredient in the shimmer and it is much more noticeable. This is taken inside at night in regular lighting, just to give you an idea.|
