Morning glories: Color Club Positively Posh

Hello ladies,

I walked across the city this morning, through the aftermath of snow. People took turns navigating the tiny paths dug out in the sidewalks. Plows blocked traffic while trying to force snow into tiny mountains at street corners. I kept seeing the ghosts of flowers everywhere. An empty trellis called to me, telling me to be patient for the morning glories that would soon awaken.

I chose Konad pastel blue special polish to stamp the flowers from Born Pretty M11. I flipped the design to convey the topsy turvy climbing of morning glories. With an Art Club turquoise glitter striper, I highlighted the petals. Rainbow rhinestones and blue pearls embellish the flowers' centers.

I am wearing three coats of Positively Posh. I think two would easily suffice on more active length nails. This polish is a beautiful dark taupe with dusky purple undertones. One of the things I love about Color Club is their subtle variations on classic shades. The purple tint adds interest and makes this basic taupe a standout.

I hope the morning glories bring some joy to your day along with the promise of fair weather.

Positively Posh was sent to me for review. This shade is part of the Untamed Luxury Collection, available for purchase at

    My apologies. I am behind on my e-mails. I owe you a longish one. Give me a few days, sweetie. I didn't mean to worry you.

    Crazy M: Thank you! <3

  5. Wow. Just wow! I meant to comment yesterday when I first saw this and it blew my mind away! Because I was JUST looking at this nail polish debating if I should just sell it on ebay lol. Cause I was like what am I going to do with that color?! But I know now though =]

  6. Love Positively Posh. Be careful when your walking. I should imagine most of the snow is gone. Hope we don't get much more.
