The Lady Varnishes - Erebor

Hi friends!  I expect there will be more, but I hope to get some post's scheduled here soon.  I've run into unexpected complications with my pregnancy so I haven't wanted to do much of anything, let alone blog. But I was excited to show you guys this polish, so here I am!

I received this polish in the mail early this week, and boy was it a lovely surprise!  The Lady Varnishes just might be my favorite indie, and owner Kristen is super nice to work with.

She sent me this polish in Erebor, and YES, it's collection based off the regions of Middle Earth!  Que geeky Tolkien freakout moment for me! lol!

Anyways, Erebor (which is named after the Lonely Mountain, of the Hobbit fame) is a unique polish that I can't quite describe.  It's a grayed out mauve-ish base with lots of shimmer.  The base shifts a little from the mauve to a more red-ish pink.  There's pink and green shimmer, with larger silver flecks throughout.  It also dries matte, but I liked it better with topcoat, so that's what you see here.

You will be seeing more from this collection from me, as I jumped on Etsy right away to purchase more from Kristen.  Hopefully I can show you guys those soon.  

The Lady Varnishes can be purchased through Etsy, she makes all sorts of collections from movies, books, TV shows that inspire her.  Lots of them for nerdy people like me!  So please check her polishes out!
