Alright so I’m almost completely caught up on my posts. It’s been a busy couple months, and I fell a bit behind. Basically my son’s father moved to South Carolina at the start of school, and I have my son full time now. Before we traded weeks, so I had Jacob one week, his father had him the next. Now I have him 100% of the time, so I don’t have the every other week of no homework nights for a ton of swatching time. I’m okay with that, I love having my son here all the time – but it was an adjustment with my blogging schedule. Plus my son started 6th grade, so that’s 7 classes with possible homework per night instead of just the 1 class in elementary school.. Now we have more of a routine down, so I’m able to come home with my son, we have dinner, work on his homework (I still hate math) and then while he does his nightly reading, I start knocking some swatches out. A few times I accepted blogging jobs and then my son kept having projects due for various classes, so things got set aside so his school work wouldn’t suffer. It wasn’t expected – but it is what it is.
So basically, I am sorry for the late posts – but things are getting back to normal now that I’m a bit more used to the new schedule.
Also just wanna throw in that my son made Honor Roll for the first quarter – so all our late nights trying to figure out his common core math paid off.
One of the posts I was behind in was the Ellagee Grave Proposal Collection, so we’re going to go ahead and take a look at it now.
The Ellagee Grave Proposal Collection is a 4 piece set inspired by Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride. I’m kind of ashamed to admit, I’ve actually never seen this! I’ve heard about it, but never saw it for myself. One of these days I will.
Okay, I’ve done a lot of talking already – so let’s get into these polishes.
You May Kiss The Bride
You May Kiss The Bride is a gorgeous magenta jelly base with shimmer, microflakes and microglitters in various shades of hot pink, magenta and violet. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
According To Plan
According To Plan is a black jelly base with shimmer, microflakes and microglitter in a variety of holographic gunmetal, taupe and blue. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Hopscotch is a gorgeous medium blue jelly base with periwinkle and iridescent shimmer, microflakes and microglitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Remains Of The Day
Remains Of The Day is a gorgeous lime green jelly base packed with lime, emerald green and gold shimmer, microflakes and microglitter. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Ellagee Grave Proposal Collection Overview
Ellagee Grave Proposal Collection is a really nice set of colors that go from bright to dark and are packed with shimmer, glitter and flakes (I feel like I should say ‘Oh My!’ after that) and look really incredible on. I had no application issues to mention, but I will say that I used a thick top coat for my swatches, so I only needed 1 coat for a smooth finish. However, if you use a thinner top coat, you might need to double up for a smooth finish due to all the glitters and flecks.
Price: $10.00 Each | $40.00 Set
