So, I started with this polish as a post-election mani. I went through it all with this post. All the things. All the links. All the articles. All the yells. All the swears. All the cries. We've gone through a lot since then. And where have we landed? We're two months in. Four months since women realized that no, we are still not equal, that feminism is still a dirty word to far more than half of the electoral map. Five months since we learned that sexual assault - although we already knew it could not keep our athletes or entertainers from their careers - was no longer a hinderance to attaining the nation's highest office. It's been months. We've gotten through it. Denial. Anger. Bargaining. Depression. Acceptance.
Acceptance? No. NO. Never. NO.
Happy Valentine's Day. Here's to all you Nasty Women. Go out and love yourself, love the people around you, love the people that truly make this country great. Do something nice for them or yourself. #Grabyourwallet, donate (suggestions can be found here, here, here, here, and here), and/or support real news by subscribing to journalism. It matters. You matter. Love has to win, right? It will in the end, right? Fuck YEAH it will if we have anything to say about it, RIGHT?!
Oh, you wanted to know about this dumb polish?
This is Tom Ford in Bitter Bitch. I bought this years ago purely for the name because I knew there would be a day when it would not suit me only partly but totally and completely. And, oh boy, did that day come. This is part of Tom Ford's initial collection launch in Winter 2011, and I can't say that there's much to recommend it except for the name. I used 3 thin coats. You could definitely do 2 thicker coats, and probably get away with 2 thinner coats but my hands were a little shaky the night I did this mani, so I had some bald spots I needed to go over. More pictures and polish comparisons after the jump.
