It's been awhile since I did a Mani Monday or ANY nail post in particular, but I couldn't think of a better way to announce that one of my FAVOURITE nail polish producers, which went on vacation at the end of last year, is BACK, Eat Sleep Polish is BACK!
And to celebrate? I thought I'd share this dark beauty from The Wizard of Oz Collection which I was fortunate enough to WIN in a contest last fall!
Eat, Sleep, Polish - The Winged Monkeys
I'm still getting the hang of taking swatch photos inside my house (how I long for the brilliant colours of the fall, I miss daylight and green!) But I really wanted to highlight the shift from a royal or plum purple to almost a bit of yellow and gold flecks. When Keri at Oh My Swatch did her swatches of The Winged Monkeys, you can see how her photos captured a bit more of the red flecks in it, so it's really a malleable shade. Great particularly for winter, because it's deceptively dark while also very much a holographic polish, all at the same time.
And can we ALSO MENTION that it's the Year of the Monkey and this is a POLISH NAMED AFTER MONKEYS? Coincidence? I think not. ;)
Eat Sleep Polish Reopens!
ESP took a break last fall to take some time to reorganize the store and to get ready for an amazing 2016, and the wait was worth it. Monthly polishes are coming back, some of the limited edition polishes over the last few years are coming back, and mysteries are coming back! Maybe one of you will even be lucky enough to grab the gorgeous No Rain at some point!
Disclosure: All opinions in this review are my own, I won this polish in an open-to-the-public contest. I just really love ESP!
