New L'Oreal - High Tide

This is High Tide from the New L'Oreal Passport to Paradise collection. This is really the only one that I was interested in. The others looked like colors that I already had. I love this grayed out light blue. It reminds me of gray Seattle skies. Our water is much darker than this. This is two coats that went on a little thick with a top coat of Poshe'. The Seattle picture was taken from the sky bridge of Virginia Mason hospital looking west to Puget Sound. Thanks to everyone for the well wish's and Prayers for my Dad. We should find out test results today.

Jade Comparison

In this picture, "in the jungle" is on my pinkie and index fingers, and "Jade is the new Black" is on my middle and pointer fingers. As you can see they are almost dupes. All you'd have to do to franken "Jade is the new Black" is take some white and add it to the other!

And this is just "Jade is the new Black" alone. Love! 2 coats, easy application, a bit streaky but my top coat evened it out. This is my new must have! 4 Blings.

Nfu-Oh - 61

This is some goofing around I did with Nfu-Oh - 61. This is a bottle I got from Ancek at Rainbows and Blues. What a fabulous silver holo! My nail art is lacking but not the polish! I Love it! This was over the top of my Milani - 2.0 mani.
And a pic of the back yard apple tree.
Posting may be sporadic for a bit. I looks like my Dad is going to be sent to the hospital. So I may be spending a lot of time away from home for a bit.
April should have results soon from the giveaway. :)

Petites - Rock n' Roll

This is a Petites I picked up the other day. This is three coats of gorgeous girlie pink shimmer! With a top coat of Poshe'. It's kind of a half jelly with pink lavender and silver glitter. I really loved wearing this! I had this on for about a day and half.

And that brings me to a question. Do you gals polish both hands and wear your polish? I almost never just do one hand and do multiple swatches at a time. I really like to wear my polish. I have been really curious as to how other people wear and swatch their polish.

New Milani - 2.0

April and I tripped on to a new Milani display at Fred Myers the other day. This is one of them. This is two coats of 2.0 with no top coat. It's almost a holo but it's not. It kind of reminds me of my graphite drawing pencil but with lots of silver blue and some gold sparkle. It's a really cool polish that looks a lot different inside and outside. 4 Blings

" My Precious "

OMG! I hardly know where to start. These are from the swap that I just got from Ancek at "Rainbows and Blues".
I started with one coat of S-he #464, a super dark purple that covered in one coat. It went on a little different than I am used to, thin and runny but super opaque. It wasn't hard, I just had to be careful not to get it on my skin.
Then......drum roll..........."MY PRECIOUS"! Nfu-Oh #39.
One easy, smooth as butter with angel wings, gorgeous flakey perfection! I can not stop looking at my nails! I put this on last night, I even had a dream about it! How cool is that! Sadly there was no sun to capture its full glory.
Ancek, I cant thank you enough for giving me my first Nfu- Oh polish and my new "PRECIOUS"! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
5+ Blings
