okay! please read the little disclaimer i put at the top, i had a TERRIBLE time photographing this polish...which is weird because i had no issue at all when i was comparing it to lippmann. just goes to show how weird my camera can be sometimes! that and i accidentally broke the lamp i usually use for swatching when i can't get the colour to capture accurately (serves me right for leaving it on the floor and piling a bunch of stuff on top of it!). so while i am lamp-less, these photos will have to make do!
i really like this colour (despite the fact that it is a kissing cousin with lippmann's it's raining men minus a hint of orange!) and it reminds me of 50s pinups (which i adore...i'm a big vintage pulp fan!) and matching lipstick and pumps. definitely a fun, vibrant colour. it's eye catching and sexy but playful too! it's all, "look how attention getting i am, i'm so fierce!" and at the same time it goes, "oh i'm so fun, let's go twist down at the sock hop!"
YES i do indulge in the personification of my nail polish and any other thing i can think of...life's more fun that way!
anyway, enough of my crazy, onto the polish! (as i get better at swatching i'm going to try and introduce watermarks to my photos. thankfully my photos have never been stolen...but i would hate for someone to steal my photos because i work quite hard on my blog!)
