I Haven't Posted For This Entire Month! (In other news, RBL's Cuprum is beautiful!)

It has been far too long since I've posted anything on this blog. What was supposed to be a short hiatus ended up taking longer than I expected.
Don't get me wrong--I am still a die-hard nail polish fanatic, I just lost the will to blog about it. I used to love "swatching", and I would often take one day to do all of them at once. Now I get tired just thinking about it, and when I do take pictures, I end up disliking most of them and refusing to publish them. On the other hand, I miss the dialogue I had with you, the readers of this blog. I felt really guilty whenever I failed to post something, yet I couldn't bring myself to do it because I knew I'd be posting due to obligation rather than a sincere desire to share my new finds with you. 
You all deserve better.

I think the distance is exactly what I needed to get my "groove" back. During my break I still read blogs, I just didn't add comments. (For what it's worth, nail polish blogging has come a long way since I started in 2009, and I am proud to be among your ranks!) I didn't start this blog to get sample collections from companies. I am mediocre at nail art, and I technically don't do 'reviews' of the nail polish. My goal since the beginning was to share my collection--in picture form--with other nail polish lovers. Everything that has happened since then is a bonus. I guess what I'm trying to say is...thank you. I don't post as often as most bloggers, but when I do, I want it to be something that I am proud to sign my (nick)name to.

Here are some old photos of a mani I did this summer using Cuprum from the Rescue Beauty Lounge Fan Collection. It's a vibrant metallic blue with copper glitter flecks. These photos were in my "reject" pile, but for the life of me, I can't remember what I didn't like about them.

Cuprum is the only colour from the Fan Collection that is still available on the Rescue Beauty Lounge website. If you love blue, this one is definitely a keeper!
