In true ME fashion, I meant to get this blog up yesterday but I downloaded about 27 games onto my iPad last night and then didn’t move off the couch for all eternity. Seriously, about that wasting-time thing: LEVEL EXPERT. But the black hole that is putting benches and fountains in your fake garden is legit no joke FOR REAL. I did one little thing and normal brain function = OUT THE FREAKING WINDOW. Next thing, it’s 5 in the morning and I’m buying paving stones and floating lily pads with my eyes closed. In my defense, though, I’m suuuuuuper good at imaginary gardening.
CLEARLY, I am the saddest person in the world.
Soooo, let’s get to the polish before more stupid things come out. I received a lovely quad of pretties from Connie with Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer to show you today. In case you’re sitting around wearing sweatpants and doing a whooooole lotta nothing, spending some money sounds like your most logical next step. Look at what you’re buying:

I see holo! I see glitter! I see jaws are dropping, everywhere.
So this is the new Fall Quartet, four gorgeous shades full of yummy deliciousness that you’re gonna need at least 18,000 times over. COMPLETE RATIONAL BEHAVIOR, though, in case you’re curious.
It doesn’t say anywhere that this quad is inspired by The Golden Girls, buuuuuut they share names with The Golden Girls and since I’m pretty much an expert in re-runs of tv shows from the 1980s, wellll, there’s a math equation in there somewhere if you’re so inclined. Either way, though, it’s a lovely quad and a bonafide justification situation to like the trillionth degree.
Here’s your quick rundown of colors. Grab the smelling salts and prepare for extra ladylike scenarios! Drool is happening in 3 .. 2 .. 1 ..
DESCRIPTION: A black with various silver holo glitters
Bea Arthur played Dorothy Zbornak in The Golden Girls, and this polish reminds me of her salt-n-pepper hair. And I don’t know if I just invented a brand new marketing strategy or what, but if you want this polish EVEN MORE NOW well then you are welcome.
OMG, I am soooo good at blogging you guys!
DESCRIPTION: A pink with gold and pink shimmer
Betty White played the character, Rose Nylund – and this color is the perfect representation for her. Cuz her name is Rose and roses are pink sometimes.
Y’ALL. I’m not saying I’m a rocket scientist, but I’m probably a rocket scientist.
DESCRIPTION: A linear holographic in a sheer silver base with silver holo glitter, fuchsia sparks and iridescent glitter
Estelle Getty played Sophia Petrillo, the oldest of the group. She was a feisty little mama with comebacks and attitude, and so naturally this polish gotta be IN YO FACE. Seriously, it’s a dire case of the grabby fingers with this one.
DESCRIPTION: A plum holographic with copper sparks
Rue McClanahan played the role of Blanche Devereaux, a flirtatious, sexy southern belle. This polish is a glorious representation. It’s basically my spirit polish, as y’all know where there is sexy there is me wearing an extraordinary amount of robe with one hand in a Cheetos bag.
THE ROUND UP
Annnnnnnd we’ve officially passed the hell on out now. Good lordt, they’s pretty.
For all my swatches, I did three coats for no dadgum good reason. Cuz two coats was perfectly fine. But this is what happens when you swatch at 2am on a work night: the brain done goes away somewhere, I swear it.
The Fall Quartet is already up for pre-order right now thru October 20 at 11:59pm PST. In case you don’t math well, that’s like 7 days to organize your life. Seventy Seven up top, people! Here’s your deets:

Single bottles retail for $11.99
Where to buy: http://www.seventysevennaillacquer.com
Now, these will still be available after the pre-order, but quantities will be limited. Although, who’s in the mood to take risky chances with their nail polish? CERTAINLY NOT YOU. In fact, you’re first in line. Go go go!
The linky loos! Connect with Seventy Seven:
I have a huuuuuge swatch day ahead of me, so I best get to it. I’m determined to keep the iPad away, lest more fake gardening (and accidental real divorce) happens. BEST BLOGGER EVER? I say yes.
