Happy Saturday, all! I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July (or Friday/week if not in the States lol). Here in Pennsylvania, we had beautiful and unseasonable weather, in the upper 70s, and it was down to 70 by the time the fireworks started. It really was a very nice day. I am more of a winter girl than a summer one, so for me to say that there was nice weather on the holiday and the day before (my birthday) is almost unheard of! LOL But I digress……. Today I have the latest A Box, Indied collection for July 2014. This month’s theme is “A Fair To Remember” and the colors in this box are a nice, summery representation of that theme.
Hello, all! Sorry to have let my life outside of my nail polish addiction cut into my blogging time for as long as I did. Work, school, and family medical issues have taken a lot of my time, as I am sure most of you can relate to. I have been painting photographing and occasionally browsing blogs, but just haven’t had the time to blog myself. I will make a sincere effort to share more consistently in the future. *crossing heart* Now on to today’s polish.
Today’s polish is one that I purchased through a blog sale at Fingers Polish Mania. Here is a link to her sale page, in case you want to take a peek. If anyone is interested, it was a speedy and pleasant experience buying this polish and I will certainly keep browsing her page for goodies :). Elevation’s polishes are so beautiful and I had been wanting to try them for some time. When I found a bunch of them for sale, I had to snatch them up! Along with Toubkal, I managed to get a hold of Aurora, Broad Peak, Elbrus, Rapa Nui and Ubsunur. These are not on the blog outside the group shot of my haul below YET, but will be eventually. 😀
Toubkal from Elevation Polish is a burgundy jelly polish that is just packed with golden flakies and microglitter. My photographs really don’t do this polish justice, but you can definitely get an idea of how packed full of golden glow this polish is. These photos show two coats of polish with base and top coat, and clearly this polish offers smooth application and full coverage. AND without having to put on a third coat, yay! I think that with the right pale or pastel base color, this one might even work well as a topcoat. I will have to play with that one and see what I can come up with. Who else has this polish and what do you think of it?
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all had a great holiday season and that 2014 is off to a great start. 🙂
