Note to Visitors of Let them have Polish

Hello readers,

  I just want to say that the years I spent running this blog were absolutely wonderful. I met many amazing people. I had the pleasure of working with many great companies. I gained a wealth of knowledge in many things. After many years of silence, I just want to pop in and say that I have absolutely decided that my LTHP will not be a part of my future endeavors. I get a little sad at that thought, to be honest. However, I will leave this blog, and the Facebook page up, and available for reading. Consider the blog, and Facebook page, a gallery.

With that said, when reading posts, please keep in mind that many of the products I featured may no longer be available. Please remember to take into consideration the age of the post you might be reading. Also, please be aware that any comments left might take a while to get approved as this is not a priority in my life any longer. I know that may sound a bit harsh, but I must be honest with you guys.

 I am onto new adventures, and experiences. I am getting ready to open a shop where I plan to sell handmade crochet items. It will be entirely new ground for me. I am very excited about whats to come.

 So, again, thank you. Thank you for all the love, and inspiration you guys provided me with. LTHP, and the readers that made it a success will ALWAYS and FOREVER have a very special place in my heart. You guys don't know how much I appreciate all of you.

For anyone who is interested in keeping up with me you can still find me on Instagram, and Facebook. I will leave links below.

A Crown of Thistles

(**Press Sample**)
Happy Friday! 

 While I was going through my photo folders I came across a small gold mine of un-posted goodies. Among these was this swatch of a most magnificent shade from the A England Elizabeth and Mary Collection. If I am not mistaken, this collection was released around the holidays in 2014. Good news though, these beauties are still available for purchase :D! 
 Lets talk about A England Crown of Thistles. This beauty is a stunning Purple holographic, like only A England can produce. There is something about the way A England does their holos that is just magical. They are like holos within holos. To my eye it looks like a simultaneous linear, and scattered holo effect. However, nothing about the effect is overwhelming. This is one of those holos that is just as stunning in Sunlight as it is indoors. This is a red-leaning Purple, which makes it insanely flattering and easy on the eyes. 
  The formula on this color is your usual A England perfection. I've come to expect nothing less from this great brand. This baby went on opaque and dense, yet smooth and buttery. I used two effortless coats for my manicure. However, I could have very easily gotten away with one coat of this color. 

 A England shades retail for $10. For more information about where to purchase A England shades in your country you can visit [THIS LINK].

Thank you for coming by today and happy Friday!

Oldies, but Goodies... And much overdue Updates

(**Press Samples**)
Hello and happy Tuesday my lovely readers! 

 It's been how long now? Much too long... I don't have any great excuses for my absence, not really. I wish I had a good reason for my slight disappearance. In some ways, I suppose I do. Sometimes life really does get crazy. Sometimes, priorities get shifted and things happen that make you really sit down and think about what is important to you at that specific time in your life. I really don't wanna go into boring and sad things... But please know this, I miss sharing my work. I miss interacting with all the wonderful people who come by to read my ramblings and look at my silly nails. I don't know what the future holds for myself, or LTHP... But, I do know that I miss "wasting" countless hours painting my nails and my face. I look forward to having the space, the time and motivation to get back to doing just that. 
I've had this post in my drafts for ...????... A LONG TIME... A very long time. All these shades were released for Summer 2014 by Colors by Llarowe. Once again, I'm finding myself with no good excuses as to why these didn't go up much, much sooner... Better late than never, I suppose?
