Fall 2011 Polish Preview: Polish by Numbers


Originating in 1951, paint-by-number kits promised even the least artistic person “a beautiful oil painting the first time you try.” By simply matching each color to a number inside the lines on the drawing, anyone can create professional-looking paintings. Using this fun retro technique, we present the fall 2011 polish collections — deep, rich hues and sparkling glitter tones abound.
