First Plaid, Now Argyle-Preppy!

I just realized when I was doing this post that I used the same stamping plate in my last two funky frenches.  I think that's funny! I guess you have to be in my mind to really appreciate the humor.  Anywho, I just completed this really awesome makeup for nail polish swap with an awesome person named Rachel.  She got a bunch of my unused makeup and she got me a TON of Orly polishes.  Remember I told you I had never tried Orly until my matte Blue Suede one?  Well, now I have 9 Orly's to play with!  You are awesome Rachel!

Of course, I had to try one of my new Orly's. Can you guess what color family I chose first? Think hard people! If you said green, you are so right and have been paying attention and actually reading my blog.  Yes green is one of my favorite colors.  Today's choice is Wandering Vine.


This is a medium green with a hint of blue running through it.  So it's not a hunter or a forest green.  Maybe I'll call it pine green. I have decided that for the price, Orly is a really nice polish.  Good pigmentation, not too runny, I think it's a keeper.  Here are indoor and outdoor shots.

See the hint of blue? I think this is a really pretty color.  It's unique and something I don't have.  To jazz things up, I got my Essie Sew Psyched which is a lighter grayed out green and stamping plate M 60.  Here is the final look.

Check out my almost perfect stamping on these bad boys! I am seriously getting good at this.  I'm pretty proud of this one, even though the colors look similar to the ones I used in my "It's a disaster, I broke a Nail" post.  Those were darker colors in that post but what can I say? I like me some greens!

Are you guys impressed with my stamping abilities? Anyone jealous of my talents?? And are you digging my bottle shots?

  8. I am digging the bottle shots actually, sometimes polishes can look really different in the bottle compared to on the nail

    You are getting very good at stamping :-)
