day one hundred and ninety two, ginger + liz swagger
first order of business!!! my DEEPEST apologies to my 3 giveaway winners. i haven't forgotten about you, i SWEAR! i have been incredibly busy the last month or so (basically i started getting calls from recruiters and such nonstop right after i drew winners), i've barely had a moment to myself, i'm determined not to fall behind in my beloved blog but i just have not gotten around to shipping your prizes yet. they are each sitting in individual bags safely in my closet, i even have the packing supplies, it's just been impossible to get to. i am finishing up this post and going straight to sleep, i'm beat!!! so i beg your forgiveness but i'm not sorry i am finally busy having a job even if it means neglecting the blogs a bit!
anyway, it is very nice to have a job...esp since i now have a place to show off my manicures besides just the supermarket! i've been getting lots of compliments at the gym too (another new addition...bye bye extra 30 kilos, hello weight from when i was 20 years old! :D).
this is another BEAUTY from ginger+liz. lest any of you forget how much i adore them....allow me to present SWAGGER! this is the polish that actually drew me into the brand at the beginning! it's almost minx-like, it's a gold foil that has incredible shine and shimmer, it's a really beautiful pale yellow gold (which i find very flattering on my skin tone...sometimes true yellow golds look weird as i'm a bit pale)...and sometimes the colour even appears to be a pinkish rose gold foil at the same time. it's stunning, so eye catching but so elegant! it lets me be fierce and girly and demure and wild all at once. if that made any sense at all...haha!
anyway, i love this polish...ginger+liz are getting a huge thumbs up from me in regards to wear. i know i only wear them for a day but you'd be surprised how often i get chips in that short time frame. these wear like iron. going to the gym, working out, showering, digging around in my handbag (and coming into contact with dreaded zippers that always chip my manicures!) and it's still perfect. ignore the sheet smudge marks on my finger...one of the downfalls of getting busy is that i paint my nails at night and sometimes get sheet marks because i fall asleep before they are 100% dry.
enough blather, enjoy!
