Above & Below: The chosen prop, the Tiger Lily. It seemed to match very well to Orange Slush...the only problem being the black dots and protruding arms coming out of the center contain some type of reddish/black pollen the smears all over everything! I had to keep wiping my hands and the polish bottle between takes.

Good morning! Yesterday's winner in the Natural & Organic & Beauty Month Daily Giveaway is Brooke! I assigned each entry a number from those who entered here and on Twitter and then had my daughter draw one lucky number...Brooke, '7' was definitely your lucky number! Brooke will receive one full-sized jar of The Savannah Bee Company Royal Jelly Body Butter. Thank you all for entering and stay tuned, because we'll be having many more Daily Drawing throughout the month in addition the the August Contest drawings. I'm having a lot of fun this month with the "Natural" theme, in addition to learning quite a bit more about it, as well as discovering some terrific new product lines. I hope you're enjoying it also!
Today's NOTD is another great polish from QRS. I was curious (Quirius?) about the ingredients used in this line because I couldn't find them listed on the bottle so I e-mailed the wonderful Jamie at Q-Nail and this is what she says:
"Our MSDS sheet tells us that the product name of our materials is 'TOULUENE & FORMALDEHYDE FREE NAIL LACQUER'. And there is no 'dibutyl phthalate'(DBP)".
That's always good information to know and although most nail polish doesn't fall into the Natural & Organic category, I'm always happy to know that many polish companies have taken the initiative to make their products a little safer for us and for the environment. On to the NOTD...Orange Slush is a glass-flecked polish that is indeed the color of an Orange Slush. It applied nicely in 3 coats, and although I could still see the visible nail line at two and I thought it looked fine, I opted to go with three. I believe this is one of those shades that looks fantastic on it's own, but would likely work very well as one of those 'transforming' polishes when used as a top coat over a darker base color. I'm still working my way through the QRS order I received a few weeks ago, so I hope you don't mind if I continue posting them in between other topics!
