Above & Below: Color Club Velvet Rope, one coat. A red polish with slight gold shimmer. It photographs a bit on the pink side, but it's more red in real life.
Above & Below: Fresh Michigan strawberries...yummy!
Yesterday I went to get some fresh Michigan strawberries, as their season is coming to an end soon and we wanted to enjoy their sweet goodness one last time. Naturally (and oddly, I admit) my first thought was 'hmmm, what polish would match these?' I didn't get a perfect match, but I chose Color Club's Velvet Rope because it was a nice, solid red with a bit of gold shimmer. What I did find perfect about this one was it's application. This is only one coat. I normally would do two just out of habit, but this covered consistently and completely in one coat, so I didn't bother with a second coat. It was smooth and flowed very nicely. I don't think I've ever used this polish before but I'm very happy with it. Color Club makes a great polish and it's quite inexpensive also. My July contest will involve Massini nail lacquers as part of the prize, and from all that's been able to be determined, Massini is manufactured by Forsythe Cosmetics, the same company that manufactures Color Club. Some even have the same names. They also have their own different colors and the bottles are a bit larger. I have quite a few quarts of strawberries to cut and freeze today, but last night we enjoyed them over ice cream and they were delicious! I hope everyone's enjoying their weekend :)
