Holiday news? Holiday as in Christmas and Hanukkah and New Year’s? No way! Yes, way. (Does anyone even say that any more?)
I gotta report news when I can, or it’s no longer news. The exception being any news that would violate an agreement I have such as with Zoya, who sends me media samples for review. I am beyond grateful to Zoya for doing this, because despite my having been a blogger for over three years, I get no love from other major polish companies. (EDIT, June 2015: I’m proud to say that SinfulColors is now working with me — thank you SinfulColors!!) I think the “over 40” thing scares them off, as if aging is contagious and as though we over-40s have no money to spend on polish. Listen, honey, we’re all aging at the same rate. Age or die.
Anyway, when I hear news about say, OPI or China Glaze or Essie, I report it ASAP. Any of you OPI/China Glaze/Essie/etc. PR people out there, email me if you’d like to change this. I’ve emailed you numerous times without response. <rant over>
OPI’s fall collection called Venice is still months away from release, but I just read about the company’s holiday set, STARLIGHT.
I have no photos myself so please run over to Everything2K and take a sneak peek. As with OPI’s holiday sets in the last few years, Starlight looks to be heavy on reds and on metallic silvers and golds.
The pictures are low-res and a bit fuzzy, so when I get clearer ones I’ll post them.
