THROWBACK THURSDAY!!

HELLO FELLOW FOLLOWERS!!

OKAY - ITS STILL HOT ENOUGH HERE TO FRY AN EGG IN MY DRIVEWAY!!  WHEN WILL THIS HEAT WAVE BREAK!???!!  ARRRRGGG!!!

DECIDED TO SHOW SOME OLDIES BUT GOODIES TODAY.  THESE WERE SOME SWATCHES THAT I HAD DONE BEFORE I CUT ALL MY NAILS DOWN.  (OKAY - TRUTH BE TOLD, I'M STALLING FOR TIME WHILE I CATCH UP ON MY SWATCHING WITH MY SHAWTIES - YOU CANT FAULT A BLOGGER FOR TRYING!!)

THE FOLLOWING SWATCHES ARE COLORS FROM THE HANDS OF HOPE COLLECTION FROM OVERALL BEAUTY AND BB COUTURE
THIS COLLECTION WAS MADE WHEN THE TRAVESTY HIT HAITI IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR AND KIM AND CINDY DONATED A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT FROM THE SALES OF THIS COLLECTION TO THE RED CROSS TO SUPPORT THEIR RELIEF EFFORTS.
THESE COLORS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE - THEY WERE MADE JUST FOR THE FUNDRAISING EFFORTS.  ISN'T IT JUST LIKE A BLOGGER TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING YOU CAN'T GET YOUR HANDS ON!!
*INSERT EVIL WITCH LAUGH HERE*

THE GOOD NEWS IS THERE IS A NEW COLLECTION CALLED CANTINA NIGHTS THAT YOU CAN VIEW HERE WHICH HAS SOME VERY SIMILAR COLORS THAT I KNOW YOU MAY ENJOY FOR YOUR SUMMER MANI'S AND PEDI'S
SINCE THESE WERE SWATCHES, I'M PRETTY SURE I ONLY DID A BC, 2-3 COATS OF NP AND TC.  HOW MANY COATS I REALLY DON'T REMEMBER - BUT I DO REMEMBER THEY WERE PRETTY OPAQUE AND APPLICATION WAS RATHER SMOOTH.

ENJOY THE SHOW!!
















WELL, THERE YOU HAVE IT!!  

SO WHERE YOU ONE OF THE ONES WHO WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE PURCHASED THIS SPECIAL COLLECTION (P.S.  I WAS 'SUPPOSE' TO BE ON A NO-BUY DURING THIS TIME BUT I FELT THIS WAS SUCH A WORTHY CAUSE IT WAS WORTH ME BREAKING MY NO-BUY!!)

UNTIL NEXT TIME...HAPPY POLISHING!!
XOXOXOXO

DONT BE A GHOST - LEAVE ME A POST!!
