Hey everybody! I just know you're in the mood for me to blame somebody else for making me buy polish. Well, here I am to deliver! Aren't you impressed with my lack of personal responsibility? :D Today's guilty party for causing me to go polish bananas is...drumroll please...Michelle from Lacquer or Leave Her. Her post on Shirley Ann Nail Lacquers had me hopping on Etsy over Black Friday weekend before the Thanksgiving leftovers were cold. :) I took advantage of the fabulous Black Friday sale that designer Cherish was having and snagged this unbelievable beauty...and it's Not Your Mama's Cranberry Sauce! ;)
Are your eyes still recovering from the incredible holo glitter in this beauty?? Well, that's good, because mine haven't! :D I kid you not, Not Your Mama's Cranberry Sauce is now in my Top 5 most beloved polishes. It's THAT beautiful. And Cherish is right...this is not my Mom's cranberry sauce. Our cranberry sauce always had ridges and numbers stamped on the bottom. :P
As you can see, Not Your Mama's Cranberry Sauce is...YEP...a cranberry-colored jelly that is packed with heaps of delicious medium, small, and micro gold holo glitter. I used three coats of it, and application was hands down the best jelly polish I have ever used. The glitter spread evenly as well.
Of course, photos can't accurately show the flash of the glitter...but I will tell you that under the lights, it looks like flickering candlelight. It's so perfect for Christmas time! I was talking to somebody in the office while wearing this polish, and the person was looking at my hands and honestly got distracted. I have been wearing Not Your Mama's Cranberry Sauce for three days and counting. I just don't want to take it off. :)
You can find Not Your Mama's Cranberry Sauce and other Shirley Ann Nail Lacquers on Etsy. Full sized bottles sell for only $6, which is just absurd, because every single one I bought is pure magic. I bought my sister a bottle of Cranberry Sauce for Christmas because it's so crazy gorgeous. I will show you the other Shirley Ann Nail Lacquers I picked up over Black Friday weekend at a later date...I just HAD to get this tasty number in before Christmas!
What do you think of this juicy delight? Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! ;)
