First of all,I love the name of this colour.Cowgirl Up is feminine version of the colloquialism Cowboy Up,which basically means to quit your whining and do what you have to do to succeed.This is a lovely mulberry (or red-violet if you want to get technical),that's packed with blue,pink,and puple shimmer.This one looks amaaaazing in the sun! All of the shimmer is displayed beautifully whenever the light hits it.I knew better than to wear it to work because I just knew I would be checking out my nails every 5 minutes.It has the same glowy effect as of all the other colours I've featured,with the lovely multicololoured shimmer as an added bonus.Did I mention that I love shimmer? Because I do.It is by far my favourite finish and my stash is a reflection of that.I thought this would be a typical red-purple (the swatches on Transdesign's website are no help whatsoever!),until I saw it in person.I was so impressed with it I wore it all weekend-even though I messed up the paint job (i actually did this mani in the car-don't worry i wasn't driving :P)

None of the pictures I took come close to capturing how enchanting this colour actually is in person.It's not a typical fall colour,but I love it.It's in the same colour family as Stella-part of CG's Retro Diva collection,but with a little more red added.I'm calling this one a favourite as well.It has that beautiful glowy effect,it's very shimmery,and the colour itself is rich and luxurious.I am in awe of it's beauty.
In other words,I liked it a lot.
That's all for now,I'll have the final 3 swatches for you in the next couple of days.
Have a Lovely Day!
Pinkginger-who is so happy that I remembered what "colloquialism" meant.Bonus points for remembering how to spell it without using spell-check. I'm such a geek.
