My entrance into the Indie world...dundadaduh...

First, Dark Shadows the collection. It's a very funny movie ;) Pictures from IMDB.
Ordering information is here.

I've previously posted about Josette and Carolyn. Here are the rest. Dr. Julia also belongs with this collection, but I don't know that anyone likes her. ;)

All of these are two coats. I used one coat of Sally Hansen Insta Dri as a top coat on all of them except Barnabas. I did not top coat it at all. I am very happy with the formula on all of them.

Angelique Bouchard, the villianess. Don't tell me that's not a word. She murdered ... well I guess I shouldn't give secrets away? She's beautiful, but there are dark bits behind her perfect glowing shiny surface.

Victoria Winters, so virginal, so sweet. Barnabas' love. 

Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the current matriarch of the remaining Collins family. Beautiful, elegant, a bit haunted. I'm not a huge vampy fan, but I love this one...love it.

And finally, the man himself! Barnabas Collins. What can I say???

Second, and most proudly, my Memorial day release, Summer Collection. This one will have a few more added to it, but I wanted it out for Memorial day.

Do I Dare eat a Peach, Daisy, Sour Apple, Remembrance, Ants at my Picnic and PB&J Sandwich. These are very near and dear to my heart. You see, I have numerous veterans in my family. My grandfather, father, uncles, father-in-law, brother, and several nephews have all served in foreign wars. Those span WW1 to the current! Remembrance is very emotionally charged for me. 

I've previously posted Sour Apple. Here are some of the others. 

I'm missing mani shots of Ants at my Picnic, and PB&J Sandwich. I will post those tomorrow. Do I Dare eat a Peach? is in development and I will post shots of it as soon as I get it perfected.

Daisy, a bit unusual, but if you are brave or just love yellow, sunshine, daisies, and jelly finish. You will love this polish. It has a great formula. It's super shiny. This is two coats with Sally Hansen Insta Dri top coat.
Ordering information is here.
(Disclaimer: my pinkie is damaged so please ignore it)

This is PB&J Sandwich. My dad loved peanut butter. Loved it! I've been known to eat it straight ;) I will post a mani tomorrow. I just ran out of light and time.

Remembrance. For all our men and women, there is blue and pink glitter in a navy base (my brother was Navy). White square, red, blue, and silver glitter with a dash of gold holo.

 The little boy in the left corner of this picture, earned 4 bronze star medals during WWII in the New Guniea campaign under General Douglas MacArthur while his brother, also in the picture was serving under General George Patton. One brother was allowed to remain state stateside. I was able to meet General Omar Bradley (also from WWII) several years ago. I wish I had been smart enough to ask questions then.

"To be eligible for the Bronze Star Medal, a military member must be getting hostile fire/imminent danger pay, during the event for which the medal is to be awarded."

Remember all of our military next weekend.
