***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***
Hey Suga Foot! Glad to see you made it back today! It’s a rainy Tuesday here in MD and the skies are grey but that’s not gonna stop us from having a great day anyway, right? Right! In fact, we are going to use the grey skies as inspiration for today’s post.
Today I have 3 new, upcoming polishes from Quixotic, the Feb COTM and 2, yes 2 Grey Nail Polish Fanatic Group customs. First off, let me say how excited I am for the 2 group customs! As you know I lost my dad to brain cancer in 2014 and May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month and the awareness ribbon color is grey. I hope to be able to complete a month long tribute to my dad by wearing a grey mani daily and these polishes are just what I need. If you love all things grey nail polish, then this is the Facebook group for you.
As for the Feb COTM, all I can say is… WOW!!! Mary put all my hopes and dreams into a polish. I wonder how she knew?!
So sit back and put your feet up and let’s take a look at the polish. Enjoy…

Overall Thoughts – Quixotic Feb COTM and Grey Nail Polish Fanatics Group Customs
Overall: I’m happy to see something different when it comes to a color for February. Often, February is associated with love, red and hearts. I love that Mary decided to still keep it romantic yet vampy and sultry at the same time. Formula / Application: 1 very minor issue to report with Still My Valentine (Feb COTM). Some of the holo microflakies did not play nicely with the polish in that they are shown not laying flat to the nail. This issue has already been brought to Mary’s attention and it will be corrected by launch. Queen’s Choice: All of them!!!
Opacity: 2-3 coats
