It was 4 a.m. and after a full day of cooking and partying I felt ready to collapse. But then I spotted something that jolted me awake.
Remember how Petah surprised me with Deborah Lippmann’s Edge of Glory polish set from Lady Gaga’s Barneys Workshop?
Thanks to Joel and Ver, it finally landed here in Manila. And it arrived with these awesome giraffe cards that Petah cuts by hand every year.
Yes, he’s crazy. And I mean that in the best way possible.
I opened the bag and found this beauty.
I opened the box and found that Petah had filled it with the goodies I recently bought online.
I couldn’t wait to see everything.
Well hello there.
Hello, Dior NY57th!
You’re so pretty!
Hello to you too.
You’re sexy. I can’t wait to compare you to my beloved Chanel Graphite.
I was really excited to see this next one.
I’ve been dying to wear you.
A precious new addition to my Chanel collection.
And of course, Deborah Lippmann’s Edge of Glory.
I inspected every inch of the box.
Thank you Petah! (And thank you Ver and Joel for bringing my babies home!)
A big dose of happiness.
A couple of days later, I was finally able to bring the Edge of Glory set out so we could play.
Edge of Glory is a rich black jelly.
It’s a gorgeous black.
I love it.
The formula is fantastic.
Super smooth and creamy.
I used two coats.
I love this black so much.
I could totally wear it on its own.
But why would I do that when there’s the Edge of Glory Holographic Top Coat?
You have to forgive the insane amount of photos.
I just love this so much.
It’s serious serious love.
Edge of Glory’s 3D Holographic Top Coat is a flakie top coat.
Yes, flakies aren’t new – we’ve seen a ton of them from brands like Nfu Oh.
But Edge of Glory just looks different to me.
Because while the usual flakies morph into two to three different colors – yellow/green/orange, blue/green, blue-green/green…
… this one changes into all kinds of colors.
Purple, blue, orange, yellow, green, red.
Seriously, it’s crazy.
And the best part is you don’t have to be out in the sun to see the top coat’s effects.
It’s also amazing indoors.
Here are photos of my Edge of Glory in natural light.
Check out all the crazy colors.
It’s been days and I still couldn’t stop staring at my nails.
Because it’s just nuts.
Here’s a close-up.
Am I in love?
Yes I am.
Thank you, Petah, for this incredible gift.
You know how I know a polish is insanely beautiful? When it stops a mad swatching session because I don’t want to take it off.
And that’s exactly what Edge of Glory did.
Thank you, Petah. Thank you, Ver and Joel. Thank you, Lady Gaga. Thank you, Deborah Lippmann. Thank you, Barneys.
Now let me go back to staring at my nails.
Deborah Lippmann’s limited edition Edge of Glory set is still available on the Barneys website.
