A contrast in color

I sit here writing this post thinking about what day it is.  For me, this was the day I met my ex husband in 1997.  It's been quite a few years.  This day used to really bother me after the divorce.  Today I only realized what day it was because I was writing out checks to pay bills.

Do you ever wonder what your life would be like if you had taken a different path?  I wonder that sometimes.  Would I still be writing a polish blog?  Would I still be in Virginia?  This time of year is also the anniversary of the day I almost died.  Yup it's true.  I am not going to get into details here.  Let's just say it was absolutely scary as sh*t and I never want to go through that again.  I came extremely close to not even being here any more.  That makes me wonder if anyone would still be missing me these 5 years later.  I always send the MD a card thanking him for saving my life.  So now I'm thinking damn, I need to go buy a card!

These are thoughts that race through my brain at a million miles an hour!  Does your brain do that too?

Ok, enough of that!  Here is your silly bottle shot for today!

Uh oh! That's pink again!  This is Bettina Giacinto from their newest Fiori collection, Elevation Polish El Cap, Rapa Nui and Nails Inc Pont Street Mews.

I started with El Cap and an accent of Rapa Nui.  These colors match only in their gorgeous pink shimmer.  Otherwise they sort of clash but are so beautiful in their own rite.  Here are those shots.

El Cap is a stunning cornflower periwinkle blue with pink shimmer. Rapa Nui is a dark grey purple green duochrome with pink shimmer.  I think they are gorgeous.  I wanted to stamp with a matching pink color so as to match the shimmer but what that did was hide the stamp!  So instead I chose different pinks to play with the shimmer.  I stamped Giacinto on Rapa Nui and Pont Street Mews on the El Cap using plate SDP-L.  I topped it off  with a matching funky.  Here are the results.

 I realize that these colors really don't go together but I just wanted to do something different.  I am in love with El Cap.  I think it is just beautiful.  These will be in the giveaway when I get it all set up!  These will also be restocked for her July 7th sale.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
