Half Full by Shipra Taneja

Hi everyone, I hope you all are having a terrific Tuesday!

Today, I'll be talking about my inspiration for this collection of topcoats.

The lovely Shipra Taneja from Taneja's Bride is the inspiration behind this collection of topcoats. Shipra is Indian. "Indian with a dot not a feather." A line from from her book Half Full, so please, don't email me any negative comments. Click the link and buy it! It's a great book! This book reminded me, as women, we all go through the same things. We all hurt the same, we all love the same, we want to be loved for who we are, no matter our culture. And, because I'm always curious about other cultures, I went to her website to learn more. She had pictures of her wedding. And, OMG, she had the most beautiful bold colors! If you know me or been around more than five minutes, know I love bold colors! I oh'd and ah'd over all the beautiful colors! In my overactive imagination I pictured happiness and joy. A time of celebration. Dancing. Twirling in circles throwing gold and silver coins in the air in total abandonment. If that ain't overactive, I don't know is! Hehe! So, what started out as a collection of glitters quickly turned into a collection of topcoats (I've shared some of those glitters on IG). I created this collection to go over dark colors. I wanted something simple and chic to transform those dark colors into something special. I think I've done that with this collection. Shipra, you're an amazing lady :D

The bottles you see in the pic is not the bottle I chose to use.

Have a Terrific Tuesday! And, don't forget to join me tomorrow for swatches of these colors.
