Before I get into today's post, I want to tell you about something SUPER exciting coming to WPP over the next two weeks!! Starting Sunday morning (Dec 22nd), WPP will be featuring 14 straight days of nail art from 25 immensely gifted nail polish-focused bloggers...all to benefit a charity that is near and dear to me, The Polished Girlz!!!  During my "Blogging for a Cause" guest post series, please visit WPP to learn more about the charity and enjoy spectacular posts from some amazing bloggers who each graciously donated their time and talent to support the cause. I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it!! You won't believe the line-up!! :)

Happy Friday before Christmas! Eeeeck! I have so much to get done between now and Wednesday !! Today I have some beautiful Ellagee polishes and a great GIVEAWAY!! I've known Laura, the brains behind Ellagee, since the brand was just an idea. It's been so fun to see her succeed! She was featured in the Sept/Oct issue of Nail It! magazine and was also interviewed for the Nail It! site (read it here). I'll be showing you two duos; both are part of the Special Events Collection. Keep reading to the end because you can WIN everything in this post!

Fame and Fortune Duo: This duo was specially created for a group of television show stylists through The Artisan Group. ($19)

Fame is warm, violet multi-chrome with silver and gold microshimmers that give it a mirror-like finish. Wow! My photo doesn't do a good job of showing the shift...which is sort of coppery. This is two coats.

Fortune is a clear glitter topper containing multiple shades of copper and gold. I couldn't bear to cover up all of Fame, so I went with a glitter gradient at the tips. I used two coats of topcoat.

Glitz and Glam Duo:  This set was gifted, along with other hand crafted items, to the press at The Golden Globes by The Artisan Group. ($17)

Glam is a deep red jelly base with golden glass-fleck shimmer. The formula is stellar. My swatch is two coats.

Ellagee Glam

The Glitz glitter topper was designed to perfectly compliment Glam. It's has a clear base with multiple sized and shaped gold-holo glitters. The glitter is fairly dense, but it spread so easily and evenly! I used one coat of Glitz over Glam and two coats of topcoat.
