Blog Holiday!

Sorry I haven't posted in over a week I have been going through the interview process for a new job which has been quite nerve racking, I found out a few days ago that I got the job so I have been running around like crazy all weekend trying to get organized.

Today is my first day and i'm pretty nervous which is why i'm up typing this post at 3am instead of sleeping, I will be pretty busy training at my new job for a couple of weeks but hope to get back to blogging soon my untrieds are already piling up and I have been making lots of new polishes to share with you when I start blogging again :)

Glam Polish - Topaz

Topaz is another polish I created when I was making Tanzanite they are very similar so I have been calling them sisters.

Topaz is a gorgeous mix of ocean blue, purple, fuchsia, emerald and black square and hex glitter in a clear base this is two coats layered over OPI Russian Navy Suede I love this combo I think the blue glitter is so beautiful I couldn't bring myself to remove this today to swatch the new polishes that arrived in the mail, even though I am not selling my polishes I am planning on adding more gemstone themed polishes to this collection as I think there are so many pretty combinations I can come up with.

Glam Polish - Tanzanite

I am really excited to share another one of my creations with you today this is something really special I came up with a few days ago called Tanzanite she is a gorgeous mix purple, fuchsia, emerald and black hex and square glitter in a clear base I really love this combination of glitter it is so pretty I have a few different swatches so you can see how beautiful she really is.

I am loving making my own polishes but I am only making them for fun for gifts, swaps and giveaways, I do hope to include Tanzanite in a future giveaway as I have had some really great compliments about her already.

Hare Polish - Magic Mist

I got distracted for a few days so now i'm back to posting the last of my Hare Polish swatches, Magic Mist is a gorgeous purple base packed full of purple, orange and blue glitter this is two coats layered over China Glaze Virtual Violet. The glitter mix in Magic Mist is very similar to the glitter mix used in Afterglow but the base colors make the polishes look unique I am not sure which one I like better I love blue and purple so its hard for me to choose.

Gomez is the last of my Crowstoes polishes it is an awesome mix of blue, black, gunmetal and gold glitter in a clear base this is two coats layered over Electric Blue, I can't wait to buy more Crowstoes polishes polishes when Lauri releases new colors I wish she still sold them herself though as $14 each from llarowe is a little pricey.

Crowstoes - Thing

I'm taking a day off from posting my Hare Polish swatches as I swatched this polish yesterday afternoon and it is just too exciting not to share straight away, Crowstoes Thing is awesome rainbow glitter bomb such an amazing mix of colors and shapes it was hard to photograph but it looks so awesome in real life this is two coats layered over a gold base.

Lauri is a genius and Crowstoes is definitely one of my favorite indie brands at the moment I can't wait to see the new colors she is releasing soon.
