I got some goodies in the mail today and knew I couldn't take photos outside and expect them to turn out well (snow, no sun). I knew I'd have to make a lightbox. I started with a smaller box but opted for a larger one. Making the lightbox was fairly easy to do using some how to's I found on the internet. Since I had all the materials on hand that I needed, it was also free!
In the future, I may take pictures of swatches in various lighting. I think that the shade, the sun and my lightbox would be good sources to get a nice variety of how a nail polish may look on you. At the moment, I do not have my digital SLR camera here so I had to use what I had available for the following photos. I think once I get my Olympus back, the pictures will improve greatly!
I will be posting a NOTD (nail of the day) with one of the polishes I won from TreasuresByTan, which I received today. It was very difficult to choose the two polishes I wanted. I know I will be purchasing some soon! There are so many unique polishes in Tanya's shop. All items are handmade and there is more than just nail polish!
|Look at the way Tanya wrapped the treasures!|
|I won a zebra 14" x 14" pillow cover (so soft, folded in the picture), a lip gloss and lip balm (I got to pick the flavor of that), a necklace, bracelet, earrings and matching stretch ring, two nail polishes (SO tough to narrow it down to two).|
|I chose Dolphin's Cove and Reindeer Games. I also added about 20 other polishes from TreasuresByTan to my wishlist!|
|Love the glittery goodness!|
|Cotton Candy Twist lip gloss and Orange Cream Vanilla lip balm .. YUM!|
|Handcrafted necklace and bracelet|
|Handcrafted stretch ring and matching earrings|
