Good evening!! December is upon us and many lovely and festive things are in store, but first I need to show you this amazing color. This is Butter London La Moss, a gorgeous warm burgundy jelly, in three coats.
Yes, raining again, lol.
A few weeks ago I told you about Julep Lindsay, another beautiful, dark, and vampy jelly that's currently unavailable, and I mentioned that La Moss is a potential dupe. It's definitely in the same family, but La Moss has a touch of brown that makes it a little warmer, a little cozier, and somehow more macabre. It's a fantastic color and yet again makes me question my undying love of red cremes. Those are great-- classic, sexy, and expressive-- but a good vampy, high gloss cabernet color perfectly balances the sex appeal of red with the edginess of black, and somehow manages to feel more wearable than both. Every polish lover should have a shade like this in his or her collection, and as far as formulas go, La Moss can't be beat. It's got a lovely stay put formula that wears well, which in my line of work means I get to go two days in a row before I have to redo it.
In other news, I did a bunch of holiday baking this weekend, and my least successful venture were these candy cane cookies. This is the idea, but mine ended up looking like this....
Yeah... the one in the lower right looks like an inverted question mark.
How's your holiday baking coming? Got any favorite recipes?
And back on topic, what one color do you think every nailista ought to have in his or her collection?
