Blue Christmas

All you Elvis fans out there are now singing that song in your head.  Yes we always listen to Elvis at Christmastime.  It's a tradition.  This mani has nothing to do with Elvis, I just wanted to mess with you.

I think I have now come across my all time favorite blue holo.  This is big news people.  You know my holo collection is vast and this one has won my heart.

You know the problem with most dark blues.  Most of the time, it looks black.  This is one that you will never mistake for black.

As I write this, winter storm Dion is over Colorado and they are predicting it to get to my house Sunday into Monday.  Who comes up with these names?  It seems that the naming of winter storms is a newer phenomenon.  Or have I just not been paying attention?  I know they name hurricanes, but it seems more recently, the naming of the winter storms.  I love winter-I want to be buried under a pile of snow. Nothing would make me happier.  I live in the wrong state for that.

My friend and I last night were fantasizing what we would do if we won the lottery. It's up to $344 million dollars.  That's a butt load of money.  We picked the numbers together, said we'd quit our jobs and move to Vermont, where I have always wanted to live.  We'd buy a big house on a lake and live off the interest of our winnings.  I mean we really had everything planned.  Do you ever do that?

Sadly, we did not win.  No one did.  I only play $1 at a time so I don't lose that much. But oh how awesome it would be to have all that money.

What do these two stories have in common?  SNOW.  Vermont has tons of snow and winterness and I want to spend the rest of my life playing in it.

Now back to my new all time favorite blue holo.  Here is your silly bottle shot.

What??? Only one color?  Yes people, the love is that great that I did a full mani with one color.  No skittles, no three color combos, just this one color.  This is Llarowe In The Navy.

Here are the starting shots.  Please note my perfect polishing and cuticle here. Reverence to the perfect dark blue.

Did I mention this is a linear holo as well?  Let's take a moment and savor this gorgeous deep dark never black, blue holo.................

Of course I didn't want to cover this up, but had to do something.  I simply stamped a snowflake on each nail.  Here are the results.

I can't tell you how much I love this polish.  I may need many backups!!!  I love the simplicity of this mani and think it is perfection!

Here is the plate that I used.  It's MoYou Christmas 2.

Do you fantasize about winning the lottery?  What would you do if you won?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
