The ALU Archives – China Glaze Dorothy Who?

The ALU Archives focuses on older, beloved shades from the All Lacquered Up stash.

Last night I went to a screening of the Wizard of Oz with the winners of my giveaway courtesy of China Glaze. In select theaters across the country the film is being shown in Hi-Def to celebrate its 70th Anniversary. Being that I had never viewed the film on anything larger than a 27″ TV it was a thrill to see Judy Garland singing on the big screen. In lieu of the standard previews they showed a whole package about the making of the movie with casting info (I never knew Buddy Ebsen was the original Tin Man) and cast interviews. It was really cool. If you can find a screening in your area I highly suggest going.

Of course such an event requires a WoO themed manicure and naturally Dorothy Who? was my pick. Check it out along with a fun pic of me and the giveaway winners after the jump!

You guys I can NOT WAIT until the Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection returns. Mainly so I can stop using my old bottle of Dorothy Who?. I love the old gal but she’s not in the best shape. I’d like to preserve her as is without attempting to add thinner. As you can see Dorothy Who? is a glitter packed gem.

Similar to Ruby Pumps the blue and silver glitter is suspended in a sheer electric blue base. It does dry with texture so you need a thicker high gloss top coat (ie Seche Vite) for a glass like finish. I just wish my camera could capture how truly magical this shade is. There is a fire and brilliance that the camera just doesn’t see.

Jammies, Heather, Julie, Me, Gena and Christine

Here we are pre-movie. Julie even wore sparkly red heels to match her Ruby Pumps manicure. Though talk about a small world. I’ve known Julie via Facebook for a couple years now though we met for the first time backstage at Fashion Week and Julie did Gena’s nails for prom. I love those kind of random coincidences.

So who else is dying to see the new Wizard of Ooh Ahz polishes?? It’s got to be one of the most anticipated collections of the year. I just know it will be a sensation.

    You should throw a matte topcoat on that polish and see how it turns out – Scrangie just did it and I was surprised at how awesome it looked!

    I'm dying for the collection to come out!!!

    I remember watching The Wizard of Oz once a year on TV, my family would get Taco Bell take out (a big deal to us kids at that time), and we'd sit on a blanket in the living room watching the movie. Wonderful memories!!!

    Just a heads up, “Dorothy Who?” will be making a comeback at Sally Beauty Supply in January 2010! Along with all the other beautiful colors in the “Wizard of Oohz & Ahhz” collection. While supplies last!
