We interrupt our regulary scheduled greens to show you...

BLUE INDIA!

My MAC order arrived this morning exactly 7 minutes after I got out of bed. That NEVER happens to me; if shipping says 5-7 days, it always takes 7 for me, and UPS the guy never gets here before 5 pm. But MAC upgraded my shipping for free and I guess the UPS guy owed me one! I could not have been more excited... Until I put on Blue India. I love this color. Love. We are getting married. It's been raining here, and I love the rain, and this color goes with it (I think I should just start coordinating my nails to match the weather). Most people are calling this blue, and it's even in the name, but I think of it more as a moody gray that leans heavily on the blue side. But my camera doesn't feel the same way! These pictures are quite inaccurate, and I tried everything possible to show you the real deal because this polish is amazing. It's much more gray than what you're seeing.

This was my first MAC NP and I've been extremely worried about application. You know you're a polish-holic when you're MORE worried about applying a polish you haven't even gotten yet than you are about your pharmacy unit exam. It's a sickness, people. I literally sat up an extra half hour last night thinking about what I was going to do if this didn't apply well when I should have been concerned about barbiturates. All that aside, I had zero problems applying this. If not for the different brush I could have compared this to an OPI polish. The consistency was perfect and I only needed 2 coats.

Outside with flash:

Are you getting Blue India? Or any of the new Rescue Beauty Lounge's? I want all 3 of them but I vowed to wait for my birthday. I think miss Ji is bluffing when she says she's running out of them!

Oh, and I got an A on the test. :D

Pretty! I think it's going to start raining here too.

And you know, I think Ji is bluffing about running out too. I thought that exact same thing when I saw her Facebook post yesterday...

Stephanie -

It's a good trick for her! I freaked out for about 30 seconds but then thought HEY! didn't she do the same thing with the blogger polishes? They came out last August, then they lasted through her huge sale, you could get them all for a while after the sale. Even now you can STILL get 2 of them. My birthday is in less than 5 weeks so I'm not worried lol.

I want this soooo much but but I don't think this collection is available in the UK yet :( It looks stunning on you and I'm glad to hear it has good application!
