Essie Gold Nuggets and Baby's Breath - Lilly Pulitzer for Target

Greetings! We were lucky enough to purchase a few Essie polishes from the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection earlier this week. (If you haven't heard about the 'flash sale' chaos, click here.)

Lilly Pulitzer for Target. Essie nail polishes: Baby's Breath and Gold Nuggets, against exclusive Nosey Posey fabric.

Lilly Pulitzer is known for her happy, beach-style prints. Every tag on Essie's exclusive polish reads, "Palm Beach is a state of mind." We photographed our lacquers against the colorful 'Nosey Posey' pattern and 'Sea Urchin,' both exclusive to Target.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target. Essie Baby's Breath lacquer against exclusive Sea Urchin fabric.

Baby's Breath is a not-too-bright-white, without looking beige. It's pretty on it's own, or as a base for nail art or the glittery Gold Nuggets polish.

Gold Nuggets has a clear base and fine, not-too-brassy gold shimmer. They look nice in the bottles, but we like them better on our fingers.  

Stay tuned for additional reviews and for information about our #LillyforTarget giveaway coming soon.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target

By now, you have heard about the Lilly Pulitzer limited edition line for Target that sold out like a flash sale.

We ventured into our local Target stores on Monday, expecting to see empty shelves and large signage with no merchandise just like the 2011 Missoni Target sale. Instead, there was no evidence that Lilly Pulitzer products had ever been there. With over 250 products mixed in with regular merchandise throughout the store, the Targets we visited looked like they had never even carried one Lilly Pulitzer item (and we looked in two states!)

The Target employees told a different story:  Black Friday style lines waiting for the store to open; Everything selling out in just minutes. One manager was overheard saying, "That line may have just saved our sales. I hope there isn't a rush of returns." (That's doubtful.) A cashier stated, "I've never even heard of this woman! I don't understand why it was so crazy!"

Lucky us! We Glambo Girls accidentally scored! We found a dress in our size on the go-back rack in the dressing room. As we were doing our regular Target shopping, we discovered an end-cap with some pretty Essie polishes. Guess what?! They were Lilly Pulitzer! We bought a few colors to add to our collection AND some to host a Glambo Giveaway!! We have nail files for a few of our lucky readers too!

Give us a few days to swatch our polishes and post pictures. The giveaway info will be shared soon.

If you were lucky enough to find some #LillyforTarget pieces, just be aware. There is a shorter 14 day return policy for this line. That is, if you haven't already sold it on EBay for double what you paid. ;)

Stay Tuned!

The picture creates an optical illusion. Approximately 75% of people see it one way. Click to view the Washington Post story behind #TheDress phenomenon.

Share your opinion of the color in the comments below.

UPDATE: We've added a video that shows the science behind how we see colors in "The Dress." Interesting.
