BLUSH Lacquers: BLUSH Beauties Fall Collaboration Collection 

Standard

Welp, my medical condition, i.e., the end of Daylight Savings Time, has kicked in and I am officially the saddest of all things sad.  Goodbye sunshine.  Goodbye green grass.  Hello things so brown and crunchy.  Seriously guys, I wish more than anything I could be one of those cute girls wearing Uggs and holding a latte.  But instead, I’m speed walking across the parking lot saying shit shit shit all the way to my office door. Cold AND classy. I’m not even sorry for it.

So seeing as it’s practically winter outside, I figure now would be a good time to write a blog about some fall nail polish you’re buying.  BEST BLOGGER EVER?  I say YES.  Here’s pretty things from Victoria with BLUSH Lacquers:

OKAY.  These colors make fall about half a point more bearable.  Which is saying A LOT because fall NEVER gets bonus points.  In fact, points get taken away.  Unfortunate proximity to winter?  Minus ten points.  Pumpkin-ing all the things, even though pumpkin tastes like dirt rolled in nutmeg?  Minus ten points.  Stepping outside into a 40-degree day and hubby telling you it feels soooooo AMAZING!  Ugh.  Minus a BILLION freaking points.

In other words, the only thing good about fall is this dadgum fall nail polish collection.  Victoria, you get a horn toot!  Otherwise, I’d never get out from under all these blankets.

Now FOCUS.  I have a job to do.  This is the Fall Collaboration Collection, a set of 8 spectacular seasonal shades made with flakies and holo and shimmer and MAGIC – all the goodies you could ever want in a polish.  Plus a side of Leonardo.  Or else I dreamed that.  I dunno.

All of these polishes were made in collaboration with the members of the BLUSH Beauties group on Facebook, who submitted inspiration photos and polish names, and then Victoria breathed them into life.  Take a closer look:

THE ROUND UP 

GUYS.  How perfect is this collection?  Like, out of all the best fall colors, Victoria has captured every last one of them.  I can’t think of anything better she could have done.  Other than that Leonardo thing, that is.  One day though, he’s coming, I’m sure of it.

But GOOD NEWS:  it’s all available now.  Time to spend some money in 3 … 2 … 1 … 

Full set of 8 polishes retails for $73
