Twinsie Tuesday: Slaying Lemmings

This week the TT theme is all about slaying our lemmings, finally getting out hands on those polishes that sat on our wish lists and drove us crazy with wanting. I've been fortunate enough to have friends send me some amazing polishes, many of which have ranked seriously high among Elizabeth's Most Wanted, and I was physically incapable of picking out just one of them. Instead, I went with the biggest lemming I've managed to bring down on my own, and to date, that's ManGlaze Lesbihonest.

ManGlaze Lesbihonest is a ridiculously gorgeous raspberry-fuchsia, matte, shimmer (so, a suede). It's not an especially difficult polish to get ahold of, as manglaze.com directs visitors to its storefronts at Amazon or Shopify. But being over here in Hongkers can complicate things like nail polish shopping. A lot. And so can trying to coordinate a travel schedule.

See, I ordered Lesbihonest from Amazon last October along with a couple of other polishes, only to be told they couldn't ship 'em here. Eh, not a huge deal, I'd be in the States around the holidays, so I sent them there...Only travel kept getting pushed and pushed, and it was July again before I finally got to the US...So, for the better part of a year I owned this freaking awesome polish but couldn't get my hands on it.

Now, was it worth the wait? YES.

Pros? Fabulous coverage. Softly shimmering matte finish that comes to life all ka-POW! when you top coat it. Great bottle graphics. Cons? Only that I could. not. stop. taking pictures of this beauty. Picspam after the break!

So yeah, I'm clearly in love with this long-lusted-after lemming. Please swing by my fellow Twinsies to see what wish list wants they've conquered too!
