Special Collaboration Look Ft. @swatchandlearn & @nailpolishdude23 12/6/15

Hi guys and dolls!  Today's post is very special to me and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating these Holiday Looks.  Well over a year ago, I started my Twitter account, @Blenditout, and @NailPolishDude commented on some of my posts with a friend of his.  Since then, he introduced me to @SwatchAndLearn on Twitter, as well.  When I started my Instragram account, @justblenditout, I carried a lot of my contacts over to this social media platform, as well.  It was on Instagram that a real connection formed between the three of us and it only grew from there.  It was only natural that the three of us would team up for a collaboration.  Here is a little more background information on both of these phenomenal people.

@nailpolishdude23 (Instagram), Rob, has been posting his nail polish art since December of 2012.  His photos range from dynamic and powerful to subtle and sweet.  He knows good polish and can easily tell you what's hot and what's not.  His collection could easily make you drool.  He has great taste in brands and colors.  Aside from that, he served in the armed services and has deep and profound love for mankind.  Rob has passion, sincerity and is a kind soul.  He stands up for what he believes in and is an all-around sweetheart.

@swatchandlearn (Instagram), Mary, has been posting nail polish swatches, reviews, tutorials and art since 2010.  Her blog,, is one of the best nail polish and beauty blogs that I have encountered.  She even designed her own nail polish shade, which I was lucky enough to win this past year, and it's so gorgeous.  She has heart and truly loves what she does.  She's honest and her thoughts and vision are clear in each and every one of her posts.  She's strong, outspoken and intelligent.  You can easily see her eloquence and manners when you read her posts.  Her blog is full of information and has so many ways to entice even the most picky of readers.  Mary has something for everyone, guys.

I can easily go on and on about these two lovely people.  I encourage you to check them both out on social media, follow them and show them some love.  It was truly an honor to work with them and I hope you all enjoy our collaboration.
