ellagee March Polish Pick Up Exclusive: Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum & "Book" Zippered Bag

Evening dears!  Yay for Friday but boo that my road trip is almost over.  It snowed in Sedona almost the whole day and we felt we'd seen all we could see so we packed it up and headed out to Vegas.  More for the fear of getting snowed in in Arizona but now we're just chasing the snow and I'll be honest, it's a little unnerving to be in an RV while it's snowing out.  We've passed 4 spin outs/crashes in the past 20 minutes.  So fingers crossed we make it out of this snow soon (this is my mom nervous voice and my California girl I don't like snow voice talking).  Anywho, trying to preoccupy myself and thought I'd share another polish that'll be available next weekend during the March Book themed Polish Pickup!  ellagee chose The Handmaid's Tale and created a gorgeous polish to reflect it.  I read this book years and years ago so I only remember the jist of it, but no little details. You'll be able to pick up Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum from 3/2 - 3/5 for $12.  There will be no cap.  ellagee will also have a bool/library patterned zippered bag available also, it is also $12 with no cap.  Let's jump in and check out the goods.

Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum is a rich, deep red with red shimmer and red translucent flakes.  This sexy little number has a velvety matte finish that I love!  I've been all about the matte lately and this satiates my need for it.  Formula and application were both nice, no complaints or issues to mention.  I ended up using 3 coats for full coverage and all the red shimmery depth.  No topcoat used.

Here's Noite Te Bastardes Carborundorum with glossy topcoat.  Yep, looks equally as gorgeous this way...just look at that red glow! 

Remember I mentioned that little Book/Library themed zippered bag?  Well here it is!  It's so cute!  I could tell immediately that it was high quality., the zipper seems really sturdy.  It's 9' x 4' and made from thick spun polyester poplin. Even's machine washable.  Perfect little bag for a touch up polish, topcoat, nail file and clippers!  Or makeup.  Or pens and pencils.  Or whatever little things you want to put in there!
