Normally, I would not spend $45 on a set of polishes that can be easily dupeable, but I knew I would regret it if I don't buy it and if it ever goes out of stock. But I didn't do it for that reason, the other reason is that it's also for charity. Here's a little information about Gaga's workshop:
A unique collaboration with Lady Gaga, the campaign brings together renowned creative talents
including artists Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson of assume vivid astro focus (avaf)
and Mugler Creative Director and Lady Gaga Fashion Director, Nicola Formichetti, to create
Lady Gaga’s interpretation of the iconic Santa’s Workshop.
For the first time ever, Barneys New York will convert an entire floor of its Madison Avenue flagship
in New York City into a dedicated space for this holiday initiative. Working with the Barneys New York
team in collaboration with creative director Dennis Freedman, avaf has designed the interiors
and signature artwork for GAGA’S WORKSHOP, which will also be featured on
special holiday shopping bags and packaging.
In honor of this special project, Barneys New York is proud to donate 25% of sales from all items
featured in GAGA’S WORKSHOP to the Born This Way Foundation, recently launched by Lady Gaga.
The Born This Way Foundation will focus on youth empowerment and equality by addressing issues
such as self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring, and career development –
and will utilize digital mobilization as one means to create positive change.
Edge of Glory base is a black creme, opaque in one coat, but this was done in two coats, no top coat.
Edge of Glory holographic top coat is a mix of blue, orange, green, red flakies.
I know a lot of you are thinking that $45 for these two is crazy, but you know it was for a good cause, and I'm happy with the polishes, so it's a win-win situation! There may or may not be a dupe coming out from Finger Paints Special Effects, if I ever get my hands on them, I will do a comparison for you guys!
But that's all I have for today, now let's countdown to 2012!!
