Very Nice Blue

This is China Glaze Blue Iguana from the Island Escape collection. Very nice sparkly blue that went on really well in two coats. I also added a dried flower which made me not like the mani so it came off straight away.
Probably the best application I've ever done with polish though. No clean up necessary.
I'll probably be away from posting and commenting for a few days because it's Melbourne Cup long weekend and my internet is really dodgy at home.
Have a great weekend everybody.

It's Alive

China Glaze It's Alive is all over the place at the moment. It's been in my stash for a couple of weeks now, and after seeing everone else's pics I figured I'd give it a shot. I really don't like the look of it in the bottle but love, love, love it on my nails. I keep getting distracted by looking at them

Yay. I just saw I got to 100 followers. Thank so much everyone for following me.

Hospital Times

I think this is China Glaze Haunting.
Can't really remember though. I put it on on Tuesday night right before I had to take B to hospital, for kidney stones.
It's now Thursday and he's still there, but hopefully home sometime today.
Funniest thing was, I managed to talk to 6 different nurses about polish while I was there.

Getting Distracted

Last night in the middle of doing my nails, B came home and said we were going out to dinner. I figured I could just put top coat on when I got home. Not so much. Got very dinted polish now. Will have to take it off and replace tonight.
Two coats of China Glaze Tree Hugger.

Back To Normal Transmission

My school holidays have finished so it's back to work today. Three weeks spent carefully cultivating my nails and what happens. Last night the middle on on the left hand broke down to the bed. And because I don't like them being that uneven I chopped them all.
And apparently in chopping lost all my ability in putting polish on well. My right hand cuticles are ridiculously flooded right now.
This is 2 coats of Zoya Alegra, sparkly, sparkly pink.
And apparently

I also lost my minor bit of skill in taking photo's.

Quick question, do you use a point and shoot or a DSLR?

I'm Back

Not that I've been anywhere, it's just really hard to get a computer at the library during scholl holidays. Should be back to normal transmissions on Monday.

I've been swatching for my database the last couple of days.

Here is an example.

This is Sally Hansen Cherry Red. An old one but probably the truest red I own.

More sad news though, Cleo, who was Custards best friend died the day after Custard did. We were expecting it because they were alsways within 2 centimetres of each other, and they were both very old but still quite sad. At least they're together though.
