Who else is spending New Year’s Eve wearing pajamas and blogging about nail polish? Damn near NO ONE, pretttty sure. If y’all thought I’d be out doing something exciting and/or less incredibly sad, wellll … you’ve read this blog before right? I mean, there’s a 97.46867% chance I’ve been sipping on the same wine cooler for the past 3 hours. Annnnd, I might’ve strategically measured out 17 Ruffles and one tiny, depressing serving of French Onion dip cuz clearly I know how to party. Seriously, WHO WANTS MY LIFE? It comes with an extraordinary amount of nail polish, a hubby who makes sandwiches and a whoooole lotta nerd points. Actually, who just wants the nerd points, cuz I’m keeping all the rest. SANDWICHES, guys. They just appear out of nowhere around here.
ALL OF THAT. IMMEDIATELY.
The Polish Pickup theme for this month is Crystals & Gemstones and Victoria was inspired by the Moon of Baroda diamond. And now, let us learn some stuff:
The Moon of Baroda diamond is a 24 carat pear shaped canary yellow diamond. It was originally part of the treasure of the Maharajahs of Baroda, the royal family of Gaekwad for over 500 years. In 1860 it was fitted into a necklace and then sold to an unknown buyer in the 1920s. It was purchased by Meyer Rosenbaum in 1943 and displayed in an exhibition in 1944. In 1953 it was worn by Marilyn Monroe in the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes while she sang Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend. She also wore it during the movie’s promotional campaign, and it was the largest diamond she ever wore in her lifetime. In 2008, it was displayed publicly at the Antwerp World Diamond Centre. The authentic Moon of Baroda is appraised at $1.9 million; however, many replicas have been made of it and it’s true location is now unknown. It is rumored that if the Moon of Baroda is carried across the sea, it brings back luck to it’s owner.

For one who can’t party like a proper lady, you’d never even know it now. This polish is LEGIT no joke. Perfect for a night out, being social and fabulous and whatnot. However, it is also good for napping, lounging and taking lazy to the next level. Which sounds like the BEST, most logical use of your time, you know, if you’re me. Cuz I don’t put pants on and go “do stuff” unless I’m somehow forced against my will. Or if there’s a Starbucks reward of some kind. Attached to a Leonardo.
But back to the polish. It glides on like butter, y’all! And it sparkles and shines and shimmers like magic. It’s almost like Victoria is some kind of expert or something. I mean, she’s got this polish thing on lock at least.
Macros, to aid the convincing:
Who wants to eat those flakies?! Cuz if we’re gonna be all drool-y and unattractive, might as well do it RIGHT. Ugh, nail polish makes me stooooopid. But nail polish by BLUSH Lacquers makes me downright ridiculous. OMG, am I still married? Cuz seriously, I don’t even know.
