It’s humpday Wednesday and today I have a polish from the August Polish Pickup group. This polish comes from Cynthia at Alter Ego and her inspiration for the old Hollywood theme was Cleopatra.
Cleopatra was released June 12th, 1963 and was the highest-grossing film of year, earning $57.7 million in the United States at the box office. This classic movie depicts one of the most famous and gloriously powerful love triangles ever to be captured on film between Cleopatra, Julius Caesar and Marc Antony in her ill-fated attempt to save the Egyptian empire.
In addition to your purchase of this polish, Cynthia will also be sending out sample scent cards for the cuticle oil pens and hand sanitizer scents she will be offering. So be on the look out in your bubble wrap for it! This is what it will look like and let me just say, I could smell it as soon as I opened the package. The coffee scent is AMAZING!! UPDATE – 7/28/2017 – PLEASE NOTE, SCENT SAMPLES WILL NOT BE SENT OUT WITH POLISH PICKUP POLISHES
**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid, le top by le Polish (shiny) and Matte Me topcoat by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
