Anne Kathleen Nehara

promotional sample ahead

When I showed the swatches for the AK: Holiday Night Lights collection last week, I left out the best a color from the rainbow: purple. The bottle I got had some issues, which were already known, so I was just waiting for new version to arrive. Y'all. It was worth the wait.

This one is called Nehara. It is a true, perfect violet jelly with super dense hex glitters. I only needed two coats for opacity, and it is still somehow luminous. It glows a lovely green now, as opposed to the violet hinted at previously...but hey, I will take an even green glow over sparse purple.  I love indies. They actually fix the problems when necessary. Some of the big guys could take a lesson.

My glowing pictures aren't quite as crisp this time. I didn't have an assistant, so I had to use a timer and hold still for four seconds...ugh. I am a twitchy person, I guess.  Thankfully, the bottle behaved and sat still so we could see the glow.

I feel much better having completed the collection now. It was seriously bugging me having something posted but unfinished. Does that make me overcommited or just weird? Either way...I can relax.
