Bye Bye Love

I love my nails… really I do.
But…. I was sitting at my desk yesterday and typing.  All of a sudden I just got an OVERWHELMING urge to just chop my nails off.

They were kinda in the way.  :-/

So, I did.  And though I might miss them, they are gone. For now. 🙂

Back to some “regular” polish.  And faster typing speed.  And productivity from not being so dainty and prissy with my hands.  LOL

At least for a little while.

The Red Blues…

Hey everyone!

I’m Duana, first time blogger, long time subscriber. I was introduced to Cheryl and her blog through the wonderful world of Twitter and have since fell in love with her nail art! But, enough about me, let’s talk polish.

I find myself picky in most aspects of life, and my nail polish is no different. A few years back, I tried the perfect red at my local nail salon; it was in OPI’s Christmas collection and I have been searching for it ever since.  None of the polishes I pick have ever come close, and it seems as if the perfect shade of red is about as elusive as a unicorn…hence, my red blues.

One day, as I was walking through my local Target, I stopped in the nail care section (as I often do) and found “Forever Yummy” by Essie.  It was beautiful in the bottle, but made a bunch of promises that it didn’t keep. I needed it to be a little brighter, like a true red/scarlet and not crimson.  It looks nice on my hands, but the red is a little too deep for me.  Check it out…

Essie “Forever Yummy”

It looks brighter in this picture than it actually is. I think it was the bright lights at the nail salon.

This is how it actually looks…pretty, but not what I wanted.

Crayola…..–ish

My nails wanted to make a statement.  Wanted to be “heard”.

So I pulled out bold and bright primary & a couple secondary colors in the loudest temperature I owned. And let them scream.

For some odd reason the blue base in the purple is so strong it’s difficult to differentiate it from the blue in the pictures.  If I can get a clear picture to show PURPLE instead of blue, I will post asap!

It’s basic…… Crayola.
