Ruby White Tips is an Indie polish company started by Laura Toff and residing at ETSY.
Last year I decided to try RWT's Mystery Box. I thought it would be fun. For $15.25 (+ some shipping) Laura will send you at least two polishes and a few goodies.
Well, rather that just giving her a color, I decided to send a story board and see if she would be OK with it. In the three images there were tons of shades represented and I was going to probably be happy with about any of them because I was going more for a mood than a color.
Laura was game and sent me two gorgeous fall polishes, a dotter tool, two emery boards and a polish bracelet (which I have not done a thing with yet).
The Polish Low Down
Harvest Maize was part of RWT's Fall '13 lineup. It fitted perfectly with the ancient coin on my inspiration page.
Harvest Maize is a rich antique brass tone with grey/violet undertones. It is chalked full of micro glitter and hits me as a metallic but without the streakiness that usually comes with a metallic. Well, that is at least how my eyes see it.
To me, Scarlet Sienna does burning embers justice. This is a red/orange shimmer and I was never sure if it was from a previous release or a prototype. I couldn't actually find it on the ETSY store. However, I do know it is a stunner.
Adding A Little Extra
I found Esmaltes da Kelly's The Forgotten on clearance at Llarowe this summer. When I saw it I knew it would be the perfect match for Harvest Maize.
Here is a little Halloween mani I did using Scarlet Sienna. The thumb and pinkie have a top coat of China Glaze's Get Carried Away.
