***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***
Hey Sugas, happy Monday! Today I begin my stay-cation and I couldn’t be more excited! My birthday is Friday so there is still plenty of time for you to send your e-gift cards and cash via paypal. #justkidding – kinda!
On a serious note, today I have the May contribution to Hella Handmade Creation (HHC) from Great Lakes Lacquer. If you remember, under the group’s new format, makers create a new polish based on a theme they have selected.
“You Shall Not Pass” is a catchphrase used in reference to a famous quote attributed to Gandalf in J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring” from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. In “The Fellowship of the Ring,” Gandalf utters the phrase as he blocks the path of Balrog Demon in pursuit. The quote has been celebrated by both the readers of the trilogy as well as the fans of the film adaptation.
**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue (liquid latex peel off base coat) and Top Coat from Glisten & Glow (glossy, QTDC) and Matte Topcoat from Sassy Sauce Polish. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
