Windestine Rainy Day Blues

Hi guys! I've been gone forever, I know. I went the the beach for two weeks and literally, it was the best two weeks I've had in a really long time.

Today I have a swatch of a polish called Rainy Day Blues by Windestine.

This polish has a turquoise jelly base with turquoise hex & bar glitter and microfine holo glitter. Teal is one of my favorite colors so it's clearly a winner in my book.

I used three coats for the photos above and RDB has a very smooth and easy application.

I know this is a rather short post for today, but I'm still unpacking from vacation and getting used to the fact I have to go back to work on Monday, sad face.

Windestine polishes can be purchased on etsy. Have a wonderful weekend :)

HARE polish - Own Your Opulence

I spent about two hours today trying to figure out how to paint my nails. After many failed attempts at nail art, I decided to pair up HARE polish Own Your Opulence with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I'm so glad I did!

It is probably an understatement to say I'm in love with this polish. Formula is a little on the thick side (which I think shows on my ring finger) but I just adore this combination of glitter.

Own Your Opulence is a complex mixture of satin pastels in several different shades, juxtaposed with gunmetal grey, black and gold with a gold shimmer. This polish really just has everything I love in a glitter top coat: black, square glitter, and pastels.

Own Your Opulence is a part of HARE polish's Spring 2013 The Last Queen of France collection.

You can purchase HARE Polish on etsy for $10 a bottle, or on llarowe for $11.

'Murrica Tie-Dye

Happy 'Murrica Day! Hope you're having a good one, I'm just so happy I have today and tomorrow off :)

I used today as an excuse to try out Chalkboard Nails' tie-dye nail art tutorial.

I really love how these turned out! I need to try this technique with other color combinations.

I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Julep Char, Julep Delaunay, and little bit of Pure Ice Black.

Sorry for the short post, but I'm sitting out by the pool as I type this and the water is calling my name!

Happy Fourth of July regardless of where you are from :)
