This barn, Known as "The Star Barn," is listed as a National Historic landmark with National Register of Historic Places and had long been admired and loved by thousands of people from all walks of life and interests from all over the country. This was built in 1872. The stars stood for hope and good fortune for the farm and land. The Star Barn thrived during a time of agricultural subsistence living and a growing economy; however, in the last 25 years, as age, natural elements, and neglect prevailed, the barn began to show more wear and tear.
This is a clear base glitter topper made of golden flakes, Gold holo stars, gold glitters in various sizes and white stars. The formula is amazing although you might have to fish around for a star, for that I suggest rolling the bottle to mix up the stars. I applied 1 coat of "Star Barn" over 2 coats of Naild' It/May Flower followed by a top coat.
"Meet Me at the Eagle"
In 1910, Wanamaker replaced his Grand Depot in stages, and constructed a new, purpose-built structure on the same site in Center City Philadelphia. The new store, built in the Florentine style with granite walls by Chicago architect Daniel H. Burnham, had 12 floors (9 for retail), numerous galleries and two lower levels totaling nearly two million square feet. From the St. Louis Fair in the Grand Court is the large bronze eagle, which quickly became the symbol of the store and a favorite meeting place for shoppers. All one had to say was "Meet You at The Eagle" and everyone knew where to go.
"Meet Me at the Eagle"
This is a clear base glitter topper with a mixture of red and green glitters in various sizes. Perfectly formulated with the perfect amount of glitter. I applied 1 coat of "Meet Me at the Eagle" over 2 coats of SinfulColors/Cool Grey with added top coat.
"Snow on Broad St"
Snow was born in York, England, where his father worked as a laborer in a coal yard. He was the firstborn in a family of nine children.In 1849 he became a licentiate (licensed specialist) of the Royal College of Physicians of London, rising to an elite level in the medical profession. He lived, conducted research, and maintained a medical practice in the Soho neighborhood of London.Many British physicians investigated the epidemiology of cholera. The first cholera epidemic in London occurred in 1831–32, when Snow was still learning his craft.Snow’s respected reputation in epidemiology arose from two classic studies of the third epidemic to reach England, which began in 1853 and lasted until 1855. The first study concerned the Broad Street pump outbreak of 1854, which killed many persons in the Soho neighborhood. He used skilled reasoning, graphs, and maps to demonstrate the impact of the contaminated water coming from the Broad Street pump. The second study was the “Grand Experiment,” also of 1854, which compared London neighborhoods receiving water from two different companies. Snow showed the harmful effect of contaminated water in two nearly equivalent populations, and he suggested intervention strategies to control the epidemic. His ideas and observations, including innovative disease maps, were published in his book On the Mode of Communication of Cholera (1855). Later, in the 1930's, Snow’s work was republished as a classic work in epidemiology, resulting in lasting recognition of his work.
"Snow on Broad St"
This is a clear base glitter topper with iridescent flakes and glitter of various sizes with white snowflakes. I adore this glitter topper. The first 2 swipes of polish came out with snowflakes on them but then I did have to fish around for the rest. I had to have a snowflake on each finger. LOL The little snowflakes have character and put me in the holiday spirit. I applied 1 coat of "Snow on Broad St" over 2 coats of Naild' It/Thislle or That with top coat.
"Chag Urim Sameach!(Happy Holiday of Lights)
To wish someone a Happy Hanukkah, say “Hanukkah Sameach!” (Happy Hanukkah) or simply “Chag Sameach!” (Happy Holiday). Or if you want to show off your Hebrew skills, say “Chag Urim Sameach!” (urim means “lights”).No matter how you spell it, is the Festival of Lights, the holiday that commemorates the re-dedication of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem in the 2 century BCE. Though Hanukkah has become especially popular because it falls close to Christmas-time every year, it is actually considered to be a minor holiday on the Jewish calendar. It is also one of the later Jewish holidays to have been instituted, and does not appear in the Torah because the events occurred after the Torah was written.On each day, Jews light candles on a (a nine-branched candelabrum), starting with one candle and adding one more each day. The candle used to light the other candles is known as the Blessings over the candles are chanted and festive songs are sung, commemorating the Maccabean Revolt.
"Chag Urim Sameach"
This is a white crelly with a mixture of blue, white and silver glitters in various sizes. I applied 1 to 2 coats of Chag Urim Sameach over 1 coat of China Glaze/White on White with top coat. I did apply this on it own and it is pretty sheer. To get it opaque I recommend 3 or 4 coats. In my opinion after applying a couple coats of "Chag Urim Sameach it looks as if I have paint splattered on my nails. Very cool effect. On my accent finger I used 3 coats of Indigo Bananas/Moonlight.I also used silver metal studs.
It all started in 1959 when, after taking First Prize in a special mention category, a Brigade led by their now legendary Hall of Fame Captain Bill Isaacs was accepted into the Fancy Brigade Division of the Mummers Parade. The name chosen for this new Brigade was “Downtowners". The Brigade's first 3 years of competition failed to produce a top 10 showing. Although not achieving success in the early years, an attitude and character was forming which would be the foundation of one of the most innovative and successful Brigades on Broad Street.
This is a beautifully made deep teal holographic polish. I applied 2 coats with a top coat. Top coat is optional but not needed. The color is so stunning especially when you take it out in the sunlight.
The Blue Cross River Rink celebrates 20 years as Philadelphia’s only outdoor Olympic-sized public ice rink. The rink offers skating sessions, skating lessons, parties, private functions, pond hockey, season-long special events, as well as skate rentals and sharpening. The rink complex features a heated facility, viewing areas, private party rooms, video game room, and public restrooms.
This is light sky/baby blue holographic polish. I applied 2 coats with a top coat. This is the perfect color for a winter/holiday collection. It reminds me of blue skies and snow, just lovely.
The history of Christmas markets in Germany roots in the late Middle Ages. One of the most famous ones and also one of the oldest ones is held each year in Nuremberg in the state of Bavaria. It has been passed down from generation to generation that the farmers of the Nuremberg area started selling their crops in a farmers market during the Advent time in the mid 16th century. Out of this farmers market the world know Nuremberg Christkindlmarket developed.Christmas Village in Philadelphia is modeled after the traditional German Christmas Markets.The most famous of which, is the Christkindlmarket in Nuremberg, Germany. The goods presented in timber booths include a rich variety of food and holiday items. At the market, you will find Christmas ornaments, arts and crafts, toys, sweets, and hot food and drinks. This is an event at which people can stroll around, meet friends, and enjoy live performances of Christmas music.
This is a deep raspberry holographic polish. Love this color. Raspberry is perfectly fitting for this color I wouldn't describe it any other way. I applied 3 light coats to get it opaque.
"Festivus for the Rest of Us"
Festivus, a well-celebrated parody, has become a secular holiday celebrated on December 23rd which serves as an alternative to participating in the pressures and commercialism of the Christmas and holiday season."Festivus pole," practices such as the "Airing of Grievances" and "Feats of Strength," and the labeling of easily explainable events as "Festivus miracles."It has also been described as a "parody holiday festival" and as a form of playful consumer resistance.
"Festivus for the Rest of Us"
This is a light violet holographic polish with a dark violet flash. I applied 3 coats and a top coat. This is such a beautiful soft color that can be used for any occasion. Oh how I needed this in my life!
