I love the nail selections of jewel tone polishes.  I really like the royal blue color in Midnight Ocean.

See anything about this collection that catches your eye?  I'm juts loving the uber-cheesy romance novel cover imagery and the moody, dark jewel tones with mixes of plum and olive.  If you like these sorts of colors- check these possible dupes out (or pick them up while you're waiting for this collection to go live).

Dupes for similar colors can be found with a few Sleek makeup palettes in shades of dusty plum, cream, and touches of olive and black.

Sleek Original Palette
Sleek Vintage Romance palette

If you're near a drugstore for under $5 you can get this Cover Girl quad-

For lipstick you can go with the Milani Color Statement lippies in Nude Creme, Fruit Punch, Rose Hip, and Uptown Mauve for your nude, pink, and plum colors.

I am excited to see this collection in person and I might get a lipstick or a blush- it just depends on what the budget is at the time of release.  If something really catches my eye- I usually cave in (sucker, ha ha).  See anything you like?

Shop for dupes before the release!

Have a great day,
