Wow, it’s been a really long time since I posted anything, hasn’t it? To be honest, I just haven’t been motivated to make posts, or even really do nail art. For the past couple of months it’s been mostly vinyls, if I’ve bothered with nail art at all. My love of nail polish hasn’t diminished in the slightest though and I hope I can pick up blogging again, even if I do it infrequently. I do have a backlog of swatches to post at the very least!
Speaking of backlog…I’m rewinding to December for this post. I think I might have mentioned in a post in December that I came home for the holidays to an absolutely massive amount of nail mail. So to ease my way back into the blog, I thought I would share that haul today, and show swatches for one of the polishes I actually wore in December.
So first off, the nail mail:
Pretty impressive, right? This was the haul that pushed my polish collection past the 600 mark. If anyone cares to know what I got, I’m going to put the list in the comments to avoid taking up space here.
And because I have an awesome mother who is an enabler despite being completely exasperated with my collection, I also got some polishes for Christmas!
Between these two hauls I have so many new-to-me brands, and I’ve barely put a dent in my untried list. I’ve also made a heck of a lot of purchases over the past month, both from destashes and from brand shops (quite a few of which are also new to me). So with all of these new and pretty brands, maybe it’s a bit weird that the swatches I’m showing off are from my first indie brand.
What I’ve got here is a LynBDesigns polish that was released for the opening day of deer hunting season in Michigan last year. I actually chose it because I was going on my annual hunting trip in Georgia, and thought it was fitting (last year I wore Girly Bits Darkly Dreaming).
This polish is kind of hard to describe. It’s a dark purple base, with holo microglitters and color-shifting flakies, and a very strong coppery shimmer.
(And with flash, since it shows the purple more)
Very pretty, right? It was a good choice to wear for my hunting trip, because despite the massive thunderstorms that threatened to flood the area, the weather just after sunrise and just before sunset was actually pretty clear for the most part. So I could distract myself with the shininess while I waited for deer to appear.
Anyway, this post has gotten a little big, so I should sign off here. Just a little teaser though, my next few posts will definitely be more from the nail mail picture. 🙂
