1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Anyone know where to get the chart, without placing an order via Valmour?

    I ordered from Valmour earlier this year and they kindly included a colour chart gratis. I must say the colour chart does not illustrate the actual colour of creams/polishes terribly well. The names of course are far worse...

    That is what was causing me problems; I need polish and cream for EG's midnight blue, old rose and chameleon. It was so much easier when I only purchased black EG's.

    Bingo...comparing color on paper to actual hues is impossible. I go through it all the time.
    The makers do the best they can with their paper and/or photo swatches. However the circumstances are imperfect.
    And names? Geez, that's subjective.
