Pretty Sara-Swatches!

The big swatching project is underway.

 The plan is to have a few dozen of us swatch similar polish colors on swatch sticks. Then everyone mails them to me, and I take a photo of similar colors for a blog.

Can you imagine, fellow nail-lovers? Twenty teals? Fourty fuschias? A BAZILLION BLACKS?! (Okay, yes, I love alliteration. Maybe too much.)

Anyway, Sara from My Life in Polish is one of the ladies from Lacquer Clones Swatching on Facebook. That's where we organize all of the swatch-plans for the blog. And look at this photo she just posted in the group!

(From top to bottom:  China Glaze Liquid Leather,  Essie Bobbing for Baubles, Pure Ice French Kiss, Orly Shockwave, Essie Mesmerize, OPI Dating A Royal, OPI No Room for the Blues, OPI Fly, China Glaze Custom Kicks, Barielle Do Unto Others, China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, Color Club Age of Aquarius, Julep Daphne, Julep Robin, Orly Frisky, China Glaze Aquadelic, Cult Nails Manipulative, and Orly Purity.  You can see a comparison shot of the four navy blues, minus Dating a Royal and plus China Glaze First mate, over here.)
These are the sticks that I sent her for swatching.  She's painted them, as of today; later on, she'll be shipping them back to me so that they can be photographed with other people's blues, greens, teals, and whites.

This is just a hint of what's to come. Two hundred sticks have been sent out so far, and two hundred more are just waiting to be labeled and shipped.
