This is Prevail with a top coat... what a beauty! 
And this is Prevail with a layer of Iced Licorice. It turned into a really nice combination.
Tomorrow I will show you Iced Licorice by itself =P

Cult Nails Press Release... from Maria in R3Daily!

I have been privy to this information for a couple of months... and I am so excited to be able to share it with all of you!!!
Maria I love you! and I have a great idea for your 3rd color =P

Cult Nails Press Release:

August 31, 2010 Nail polish blogger R3 Daily announces a new nail polish line, Cult Nails. Maria Morrison is the blogger of R3 Daily and creator of Cult Nails. The polish line will be B3 Free which means it does not contain formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phtalate. Cult Nails polish line is also camphor free, cruelty free and considered a vegan friendly product. "When creating this line it was important to me that not only can I safely wear it, but so can my daughters."

The line will launch in early 2011 with only three colors. Cult Nails will continue to introduce colors to the line throughout each fashion season in 2011. Maria stated that "While I was very excited about the opportunity, I had to be realistic in what I could bring to the table. A small line with a limited collection is a perfect introduction for Cult Nails. The focus is on creating trend setting polish colors that are fun and safe while taking an earth friendly stance in everything we do" In fact Cult Nails commitment to being earth friendly means removing unnecessary packaging, using boxes for shipping that are made from 100% recycled materials and shipping packages with reusable packing materials, like cotton balls.

The three introductory shades will retail for $10 per bottle and will include a vibrant holographic red aptly named "Follow Me", a true grey purple creme with a subtle shimmer named "My Kind of Cool Aid" and a yet to be chosen color that R3 Daily's blog followers will have an opportunity to create. Maria's goal is to involve the polish blogging community in the creation of this new line, "Polish bloggers and followers are the most amazing group of women I have seen. They are so supportive of each other and have amazing ideas when it comes to polish. I can't wait to see what they create! This line isn't just for me, it's for all of us!"

We interrupt all regularly scheduled programming to bring you breaking news!!!

I made it into the Top 50 Nail Blogs as compiled by spabeautyschools.com!
Top 50 Nail Blogs

And I am No. 3 on the list!!! ^.^
I think I have died and gone to heaven!

Here is the little blurb they wrote about me and Chromatic Misadventures:

3. Chromatic Misadventures
Claudia - a 30-something New York resident and Panama native - serves up a focused, award-winning blog: nail polish and nuthin' but nail polish.

"Polished" Advice: Chromatic Misadventures is perfect for polish lovers who can't stop looking at new colors. Beyond her daily posts and brilliant photos, Claudia links followers to other nail polish blogs, manufacturer sites, and nail polish contests and giveaways.

Nailin' It: Aside from an occasional legal disclaimer, Chromatic Misadventures really sticks to the topic at hand. The content can get a little stale and repetitive for the average reader, but gives diehard color fans a regular fix.

I don't think I will receive a better Birthday present that this!
I want to thank you all! *kisses*
