China Glaze Up & Away

Hummina, hummina, hummina.  You should have seen me when FedEx pulled up this morning.  I was all over the place (and on the phone with Apple, since my iPhone broke... again.  Side note, this is the 10th iPhone I will have had since November 2007).  Now, I don't have the official promotional papers on this collection, The official release is at the bottom of this post and I don't want to rip off anyone, so I'm going to link you to my favorite nail blogger, Scrangie, and her post (and swatches) on these awesome springtime colors. [Up & Away Collection by Scrangie].

Since my light box is still somewhere in a warehouse to be shipped, and I don't have my polish table anywhere ready to start swatching, I just plopped on the concrete outside with some sunshine to take real pictures of these 12 beautiful shades.

I'm going to figure out how to make greens and purples love the camera (or Photoshop) because the green in this collection  is a beautiful green but on camera it looks blue.  Same with purple - it looks blue!  What's with this.  I will get to the bottom of it, promise.

 Up & Away started shipping last week to e-tailers and should be available quite soon.  Sally's Beauty Supply, however, won't see this collection until around March... my local store hadn't even HEARD of it yet.  :(
