High Vault-age & Vintage Lulu

The good news is that when I'm lazy about what to post (i.e. pulling pictures from my vault), I up my pun game and you get fun titles like today. Get ready for the puns, BOOM. (Actually, I'm not very punny, so don't set your expectations very high.)

Lumina Lacquer Chinese Lanterns over some nude polish. I honestly just searched my notes for about 15 minutes and either this swatch occurred while I was dreaming (it is a dreamy polish) or I forgot to write notes down. Anyway, you get the idea. Of course, this is the quintessential "Amanda polish" with hearts and lots of glitter. I am really fond of Lumina Lacquer, she's made her way up into my very favorites!

Here's Sinful Colors Flutter. This was 3 coats and it had an annoying, gloopy formula. I think this might already have a new home for someone with patience and thinner :)

I added Memo's Mind Faerie Dust which was super easy to apply and this is one coat. There's butterfly glitter in there, can you find it?!

Last for today is Nicole by OPI All Kendalled Up. This is two coats and the formula was just perfect. Plus, I actually really liked this color on me. It's a little more red IRL.

I added Different Dimension Rainbows & Butterflies on top which is not for me. Nothing with her formula or anything but I wasn't a fan of the shimmer which overloaded it, IMO. Definitely a very fairy feel (which I guess relates more to the previous glitter than this but we're on a fairy theme now, people! Keep up!). She also has found a new purpose, which you'll be seeing in the next couple days in the form of a giveaway :)

Finally, please enjoy this vintage picture of baby Lulu. This is from my October 3rd album so it's when she's not quite a year, I think. She quite enjoys my lightbox and I frequently chase her out of it but this particular time she had already started napping, sitting up, when I got to her so naturally she stayed inside and you guys get a picture instead. Enjoy!

Lulu is very pretty. I'm sure that the minute I finished a light box, both of mine would probably destroy it, just because it's a box and boxes aren't allowed in 'their' house. ;)

Thank you! She is pretty adorable, I have to give her credit.

lol! Luckily this is fabric and really bright so I think she knows it's a "fancy" box just for sitting in ;)
