This is a no-chip design, so I’ll try to get good wear time out of all the time it took to actually paint them.  Smile

Cirque du Soleil

China Glaze collections make me happy. I picked up their “Cirque du Soleil – Worlds Away” collection last week.  Even the super bright happy colors seems totally winter appropriate to me. lol.  I guess I love a bright color no matter the season.

It already feels like a circus on my hands, and I only used three colors from the collection this time. Looks like the big top tent.

“Hanging In The Balance” (Blue)
Surreal Appeal” (Coral/Pink)
It’s A Trap-Eze” (Glitter in Milky Base)

I think my favorite color is the melon/coral/pink color. (“Surreal Appeal”)  It’s so super warm and glowing!  Oh, and it looks amazing against my skin.  LOL.  So I LOVE it. 

I used “White on White” as a base for the glitter polish. (“It’s A Trap-Eze”)

Yay for polish!!  Smile

FOUR. MORE. YEARS.

I won’t lie…. I just knew we would be waiting a week to find out the final results of this election.

The excitement and calm that I experienced with the election result that Obama would be our president for FOUR MORE YEARS!?!?!?!?! I slept so much better last night.

And WHAT A RELIEF not to have to see another negative political ad for this election!  Smile

This Obama-inspired manicure was done for my beautiful client Sophia for her VIP attendance at the McCormick Place election night CELEBRATION for Obama!  And her nails most definitely captured the mood of the event!!!!  I loved them.
