I hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday. I haven't done much of anything today,but after the week I've had I figure I'm due for a little rest and relaxation.
Today I'm bringing you the last set of Hotsy Totsy swatches which,to be honest, I wasn't impressed with at first. Sure they're all pretty,but nothing special.
BOY WAS I WRONG!!!!
maroon with red and gold shimmer.
Drool..... This colour is quintessentially fall! It's rich and glowy and beautiful.I'm biased because I love red-brown polishes,but seriously, this is stunning.
I didn't expect to like this one either.I love foils,but I'm not usually drawn to this colour.However,the sparkle in this one is enough to gain my seal of approval.Simply gorgeous.
Brown-taupe with gold shimmer
This is my favourite! It's one of the loveliest neutrals I've ever seen. Ingrid is surprisingly complex.In sunlight it looks like a straight-up light brown shimmer,but in the shade it looks mauve.It is amazing!!! This is totally out of character for me.I like neutrals,but I don't always find ones that I love. I love Ingrid!
China Glaze has done it again! This collection is truly something to be proud of.I love the theme and each colour perfectly captures the tones and the mood of Fall. It only took 2 or 3 coats to reach opacity,I had no issues with the formula and the dry time was excellent. I can't say anything bad about any of these. I've tried, but the only thing I could come up with is, 'I don't usually wear colours like Swing Baby'. That's it.
My favourite set is still Cat's Meow because I'm always drawn more to jewel tones rather than neutrals,but the offerings of the Hotsy Totsy set are just as gorgeous.
Incidentally,my Nan still uses the adjective "hotsy-totsy" on a regular basis.From what I can discern it means,"great" or "perfect" because she only uses it when you ask how she's doing,( i.e. "How are you Nan?", "Oh,I'm just hotsy-totsy.")
My Nan is such a hep cat :)
Do any of you have this collection yet? Which are your favourites?
Have an awesome day!
Ginger-who begins her vacay in 5 days.All I have to do is get through the week without kicking somebody in the shins with my steel-toed combat boots.Wish me luck! (or pray if you're into that type of thing )
