The Book Club Limited Edition Polish.


Thousand Different Strokes of Light is a light taupe subtle creamy holo with a blue shimmer and flash.

This is such a work-appropriate shade but with an awesome twist!


Matte nail macro.


The blue in this polish really pops right here. It's so pretty!!

Ease of Dry: Quick.
Texture: None noted.

Birthday Limited Edition! These will be numbered.

Bottle macro.


Glossy nail macro.


Inspired by a quote from Mark Twain’s published journals “There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable.” - Mark Twain


One of those polishes that I wasn't 100% sure about at first. It looked a little redder than I normally would buy - but I'm glad I was 'forced' to try it!! It's a very gorgeous pinky-red that is perfect for late Summer!
