Not what I had in mind

When I was putting together colors for today's mani, I had a specific combination in mind.  Once I got to the actual polishing, I realized that it wasn't going to work with the colors I had chosen. So I had to make a quick change up. Before we get to all that, let's view my bottle shot with my sleeping babies.  Forgot to tell you, it's Zoya Marina from the fall mirrors collection.  I got it with their buy 1 get 2 polishes sale recently.


You can just feel their excitement for this polish can't you? This polish is a steel blue with subtle silver blue shimmer.  It's really something-I have nothing else like it.  Here are indoor and outdoor shots.

Isn't it pretty? I didn't get any of the mirrors collection at first, because I thought they were glitters.  Then I saw swatches of them and realized I was missing out.  Originally, I wanted to stamp with Zoya Cynthia which I posted here but when I started, I realized it wasn't going to show on my nails. So instead, I grabbed China Glaze Calypso Blue.  Which is one of my all time favorite blues.  I posted that alone here.  I used stamping plate M65, which is a geometric funky disco design, but my nails are small and it didn't really translate.  I topped it off with my funky french.  Here it is.

This isn't quite what I had in mind when I started this but it came out OK I guess.  I dread taking this blue off because I know Calypso Blue leaves horrible smurf hands behind.  Oh the price we pay for beauty!

Want to also share a funny with you.  On Tuesday, Virginia had an earthquake.  Guess where I was? In the bathroom where I work.  Now really-is that a place to be when an earthquake hits? I'm OK and so is my house-was a little scary, but when it was happening, I didn't realize what it was, so didn't get too scared.

How about this mani? Thoughts?

  8. I love the blue! It's a very nice color, not to bright, but not too dark. My kitties never look excited about anything unless it has to do with food!
