Hello, there! This has been a tough, tough week. Baby ACD has developed a wicked diaper rash for the first time in her life and is in agony. She is handling it like a champ, but it’s breaking my heart that she is in so much pain. She also just started going to daycare last week and has been a little clingy as she transitions and figures out why I have suddenly started leaving her on her own. I feel emotionally and physically drained, but it is so much tougher on her, no doubt.
As I sit here holding her in my arms while she naps, I find myself worrying and reading things that can do no good. So I thought I would share with you a swatch of the beautiful Guardians of the Tower by Tonic Polish. This was a Rainbow Connection UK store exclusive that came out in March 2017 and is, sadly, no longer available. A kind nail polish friend sold it to me late last year and it took me a couple of months to finally try it on.
The base is a dark green-leaning teal, with strong pink-yellow shifting shimmer, fuschia-gold-green shifting flakies and a sprinkling of scattered holo. I can’t resist bottle shots of complex beauties like this one.
Here are some macros that show the beautiful shifty shimmer and the flakies:
I did do some subtle stamping over this, but I’ll post that separately just for logistic purposes. I had no hopes of ever buying this polish two years after it was released and then discontinued, so I feel very lucky that I finally got my hands on it!
This is it for today. If you’re reading this, please send a quick thought/prayer for my baby. I’ll be back soon with the other half of this post! Till then, I’ll leave you with a final shot of this beauty.
