As you can see there are a few minor changes. They layout is a WordPress layout called Coraline. I opted to use one of my own photos for the header and it’s a squished distorted photo that I took of a roadside landscape on a highway between Santa Fe and Albuquerque in New Mexico. Hopefully this layout is a little easier to navigate and read.
SO, first up on the new, improved (and hopefully more consistent) blog, I have for you China Glaze’s Fall 2010 collection Vintage Vixen-Hotsy Totsy. This will be the first post of two for Vintage Vixen since there are actually two sets of six in the collection-Hotsy Totsy and Cat’s Meow which will go up tomorrow.
This is one of the collections I’d been really looking forward to considering the range of finishes (metallics, foils, and shimmers, oh my!) and different colors offered in the collection.
These polishes actually launched in July and have been available at Sally Beauty Supply stores, for a few weeks. I’ve been sitting on these since August, I think. Clearly, I need to be getting these sooner!
Bogie – The name makes me think of Lauren Bacall in a smokey room in a black and white movie w/ just the right lighting. The actual color seems to go w/ that theme in my mind. It’s a very rich and smoky purple with enough bling to take it out for dinner and dancing.
Ingrid – I’m totally in love w/ this one! It’s that taupe-y, greyish, brown or mushroom, if you will, that’s super hot right now. She’s got some golden shimmer that makes also makes her quite special. This one also sort of reminds me of its namesake; it comes across just as strong and elegant as she was.
Foxy – Foxy indeed! I keep looking at the bottle and thinking, “Meh, it’s just another red.” But then I look back at my swatches and I think, “Whoa! Hot mama!” This a great red for the fall; it’s a little bricky, a little purple, with some red and gold shimmer that just makes me think of fall.
See anything you like? I think my top three picks are Ingrid, Bogie and Foxy.
Oh, but wait, you say! What was this you were saying about a giveaway today? Well, since I didn’t get the chance to type these posts up yesterday, you’ll have to wait for the last post of the day later tonight!
