Burnt Sienna

The fancy new Blogger interface decided to delete this post this morning-so I am attempting to remember what I said and recreate this post!

Growing up, my favorite crayon was Burnt Sienna.  It was the perfect burnt orange brown and was always the one I reached for first.  I think I have found my grown up Burnt Sienna.

I also want to pause and say Happy Birthday to my absolute BFF in the whole world. He and I have been friends since we were 7-now we are 44.  Well technically, I am 43 until April 26.  His birthday is April 18th.  He is 8 days older than me.  Every year on this day, I remember just how lucky I am to have such an awesome BFF.  He is the one who named me Fingers all those years ago.

OK, enough nostalgia for one day.

Here is your silly bottle shot.

This is Elevation Polish Arches and Arches at Sunset.  Arches is the perfect burnt orange brown creme.  It has become my favorite polish in the lineup from this brand.  It actually dries to a rubber finish like some of the Illamasqua do.  I didn't get a shot of that.  But it's there and it's cool.  Arches at Sunset is roughly the same color but with more green and gold.

I started with Arches with an accent nail of Sunset.  Here are your shots.




Swoon!  I am so in love with this color there  are no words.  I didn't want to cover up this gorgeousness too much, so I just stamped with SDP-N and the opposite color and topped it off with my funky. You can't see the design very well in the sun but it shines in the shade. Here are the results.

Close Up
I did not get a good macro shot for you.  Isn't this stunning?  I am so loving this mani I couldn't stop staring at my nails.

Did you have a favorite crayon growing up?  Happy Birthday to my BFF-he knows who he is.  I'm not naming names here, I don't even name mine!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
