Hello! I hope everyone's doing well and for those of us in the States, I'm sure you're counting down to the long 4th of July Weekend! I think I underestimated the allure of Massini polishes because I had a ton of entries yesterday and it's only the 1st of the month! If you're interested in the contest, check the informational box in the upper right corner of the blog.
When I went to Meijer the other day to pick up the Massini polishes, I found yet another (this is my third one) Wet n' Wild Chrome polish. This time in Pewter, even though the color is orange. That's why I like Barry M polishes, they say Coral and it's a Coral polish. They say Mint Green on the label and guess what? It's a Mint Green. I just love these Chrome collection polishes, even though their names don't match the polish and they're not chrome. They apply great (this one took 2 coats, although the others I have worked with 1) and wear well. I never did find the collection display, but every time I go to Meijer I find 1 sitting all alone on an end aisle. I'll keep looking, maybe I'll find more.
I told you yesterday I'd try and show you some of the Massini polishes I have in my collection, so today I pulled a picture I took in March of Drama Queen, which is one of the polishes in the July prize collection. Drama Queen is extremely blingy and very pigmented. It doesn't need to be used over a colored base because it has enough color to look fantastic in 2 coats. It's packed full of sparkle, which is always a plus! I couldn't resist posting a picture of one of our Clematis vines I took last night. It's in full bloom and I don't know about you, but I think it's beautiful and it makes me happy every time I look at it. This plant was only 12" tall when we planted it last year...it makes me wonder what it will look like in a couple of years!
