Last week I received and wonderful and unexpected email. I received an email from the PR manager at Neiman Marcus Orlando. She told me she enjoyed my blog, and wanted me to come in because she had a bottle of Chanel Peridot polish for me.
I have to be honest, I was really surprised. My blog has always just been fun for me. I never intended it to be anything fancy or special, but to be recognized by Neiman Marcus was a real treat! I went into Neiman Marcus the next day, and met with Andrea, the PR manager. She took the time to take me downstairs, and show me all the new fall collections in the cosmetics department.
It was truly wonderful. There are a lot of beautiful colors for fall. What I noticed is the fall colors seem to be rich burgundies, deep blues, and lavish teals. The store was beautiful. I'm familiar with Neiman Marcus. I was born and raised in Dallas, where the department store originated. My dad and I on Sundays would go to the farmers market and then stop by the first Neiman Marcus to walk around. They're definitely beautiful and luxurious stores!
On to nail polish!
When I saw previous swatches of this color, I was floored by the amazing finish on this, but I was worried about the color. Yellow-greens tend to not play nice with me. I'm over it, this color is beautiful! I love the gold in this. You never know exactly what color you're going to get depending on the I light. I noticed indoors under bright light the gold pops out more. In the shade outdoors the green pops out more. It's magic in a bottle!
I'm typically not one to spend the money on higher end brands, but having the opportunity to view a lot of these up close, I was able to see the appeal of them. The pigmentation in these polishes is amazing. The polishes that had shimmer or glitter, you can tell the materials used were top notch. They did not look like your run of the mill shimmers. I was so impressed, I ended up purchasing a Yves Saint Laurent polish from their fall collection. I don't have the budget to fill my stash with a lot of these beauties, but I definitely see myself saving up for some more in the future.
I want to thank Andrea, for the polish and taking the time to show me around the store. You definitely made this bloggers' day!
