It's Friday!!! YAY!
I hope everyone has something fun and/or relaxing planned for the weekend!
Today I have for you...well, not much, that's the sad part!
I have a very simple, not very exciting mani to show you. I have plans to crank out a few this weekend since I'm kinda scraping the bottom of the barrel, or vault, as it may be!
I wanna show you guys 2 polishes that I found by chance a week or two ago, while I was doing grocery shopping. It occurred to me that I always liked Rimmel polishes, since they seem to release some cool colors every now and then, and decided to take a look. Now...before I show you pictures...these polishes are about 100 times better in person, the camera just could not pick up the depth and multicolor awesomeness that are these polishes!
So first we have Hard Edge:
Hard Edge is a Wine color with a purpley undertone and an almost golden shimmer.
It shows purple-burgandy at the edges, then wine closer in, then finally a brighter golden wine color in the center.
In the bottle I can also see green at the edges, but I don't have the swatch with me so I can't remember if it showed on the nail.
Sadly it just doesn't show in the pics like in real life!
Next we have my favorite of the two, Night Before:
Isn't that gorgeous???
Night Before is a Pinkish purple with a blurple undertone and magenta highlight.
So from the edge inward it goes from blurple, to purple, to a pinkish purple, to almost magenta in the center. And in certain lights it even has some golden tones to it!
While Hard Edge is a warm wine that leans slightly brown, Night Before is definitely in the purple family.
These are just so gorgeous in real life!
Mom has commented to be frequently that seeing the pictures on here and seeing the mani in front of her is almost like seeing 2 different manis! That while they look good here, they look fantastic in person!
I don't know if I tend to gravitate toward hard to photograph colors, or what, since my camera isn't top of the line, it is supposed to be a GREAT camera, so it should be plenty high quality enough to take pics of polish! (Thank goodness for Christmas gifts, or I'd still probably not have a digital camera!)
OK, on to the very VERY old vault pic I scrounged up for ya!
Here is China Glaze "For Audrey" with M45 in black on the tips:
Pardon the chunky acrylics...this is probably 6 months old, before I got good with acrylics and realized they didn't have to be so thick to be strong!
They are pretty beat-up, I had been wearing this for many days before I took this pic.
To me, For Audrey just calls for polka dots and bows and such. It's just such an awesome vintage color!
Well my dears, That's all I have for you today!
I hope I inspired you to maybe take a look at your Rimmel display and see what may be waiting for ya!
Have a FANTASTIC weekend!!!
Thank you all for all the wonderful comments the past few days! I will be 100% done with Invoices today, and will be back to responding to comments next week! Thank you for understanding and being patient with me!!
