Pure Nostalgia: Windestine Crushed Rose in Spring

Hey everybody!  I don't know about you, but I love it when the name of a polish is perfectly suited to the polish itself.  Who could ever forget OPI Roll Down the Window or Deborah Lippmann Cleopatra in New York?  Those polishes are exactly the mental images you get when you hear the names.  Exactly.  And I've found another one...Crushed Rose in Spring by Windestine.

I absolutely love this polish.  Just looking at it makes me think of a soft April rain and reading a book by a window overlooking a Victorian rose garden.  Sound crazy to you?  That's why I love Crushed Rose in evokes such a strong feeling of very particular things.  It oozes antique postcard nostalgia.

Windestine Crushed Rose in Spring

Crushed Rose in Spring is part of Windestine's 2013 Spring Collection and is described as "matte pink, matte yellow, and snow white hex and shredded glitters in a pastel green colored base."  In my opinion, it's the shredded glitters that make this so special.

Ready for a dory ride on the lake?  Bring your parasol!

I used 3 coats of Crushed Rose in Spring with top coat for the photos.  It applied extremely well and my clumsy self had absolutely no clean up.  I love it when that happens! :)

Don't forget to stop and smell the roses...

So if you're longing to go to a tea party and can't manage to get an invitation, check out Windestine Crushed Rose in Spring as a lovely alternative to sulking.  You'll see what I mean about the amazingly clear mental image. :)
