***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***
It’s just before 8am est on Friday morning and I have already been asked, what are we doing today… twice by 2 different children of mine *insert sigh here*. Like don’t siblings communicate and select one lucky one to ask the questions? I have no personal experience being an only child, but I always thought that’s how it went. No?
Yes, Jason and I were nice enough to allow the kids not to go to school today and start their summer break early. Yippee! *said in my most sarcastic voice ever!
You see, Jason gets to leave out of the house for work. I, on the other hand, only have to travel to the basement to work. That means I get to hear the yelling and fussing that is sure to take place this summer…for 11 weeks.
So couple that with being up since 4:30am after getting to bed at almost midnight means that I need coffee, and lots of it, to make it through the day. But I should look on the bright side….
I’ll let you know when I find it.
On to the polish…
Today I have 3 of the 10 polishes from the Mukashi (Once Upon a Time) Collection from Pahlish. Inspired by Japanese folklore and fairytales, this set is comprised of soft shades and bright neons. I’m sure you can tell which I have for you today. Let’s jump in.
*All swatches are done using Commitment Issues (liquid latex peel off base coat) by Vapid, Top Coat (glossy, QDTC) by Glisten & Glow and Matte Topcoat (matte topcoat) by Sassy Sauce Polish. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
