30 Days of Purple - Day 26 - Pretty and Polished TART

Hi Goddesses

Ugh, hands up if you HATE Mondays !!!  Man I despise them. I find it really hard to get going, and trying to remember what I did on Friday often seems like remembering a past life!

So it was with a big PHEW that I put the lid on today, drove home, napped for an hour, played with Bluebelle and prepared today's post.   Which day became which on this challenge was totally random, but I don't think I could have chosen anything more calming for a Monday.

TART by Pretty and Polished was on my wishlist for the longest time this year, and I just couldn't quite ever get my paws on it.  I'm glad I persevered though, because this is perfection in soooo many ways.

To be fair, it's not unique.  It's similar to Rebecca Likes Cupcakes, the famous franken that I too have made a bottle of (although the glitters are different), and it's also quite similar to Girly Bits Mother May I ? which I posted HERE.

Trying to pin down what makes this polish so perfect for me is almost impossible.  I love the creamy lilac base.  I love the glitters.  I love how yellow and red glitters really don't belong in this type of polish.  And I love how it makes me feel.  Ultimately I think it just adds up to sooooo much more than the sum of its parts.

So how does this make me feel?  Well, in a word, calm.  There is something serene and soothing about this polish, without it being Mogadon-dull.  The lilac base gives it an aura of tranquility, whilst the glitter gives it one foot in the quirky jar.

Pretty perfect for me.  And DAMN perfect for beating those Monday blues!

Enjoy xx :)
