Happy Saturday, folks! I hope that your week is being kind to you and that you are finding time to relax or do something that you want to do. For those that work weekends, hope that your day is quick and easy! Today on the blog I have a polish from Different Dimension’s Shooting Star Collection called Zarya.
TGIF, folks! The week has almost come to an end and I feel a bit of celebratory nail polish is in order, don’t you? For those of you who work on Saturdays thinking, “Screw you, I have to work tomorrow!”, you have my deepest sympathies. Rest assured that this post will be available to you any day of the week to celebrate YOUR Friday! 😉 Now let’s get to today’s polish.
Hey, guys! How’s everyone doing today? Good, I hope. It’s Monday and I know that they are usually a complete drag, so I figured I would share a bit of sparkle and pizzazz with everyone to help brighten your days! If you like Monday (or this Monday in particular), then this will make it that much more special. Please gaze lovingly upon Gravity from piCture pOlish…….
Happy Friday, everybody! The weekend is upon us as is the start of the Twinkie Nail Art challenge. This is a one manicure per week challenge, on Fridays during August, which is more my speed as far as these things go. I’ve only done one challenge before, and that was a 5 day one which seemed to work OK. this challenge is being hosted by Polished by Beckie and Spilled Milk Nails. Thank you, ladies, for giving me a chance to force myself to practice nail art LOL. I am excited to do my actual first ever gradient for this challenge, stay tuned to the blog to witness that next week! First, however, is today’s challenge: the Throwback mani.
Memorial Day is a very important day here in the United States. It’s the day on which we take pause to memorialize and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while defending democracy and freedom as a member of the US Armed Forces. Below is a picture of my father, a man who dedicated his entire adult life to his country and community. First as a Radioman Chief in the Navy for 18 years until his medical discharge, then as a dispatcher for the Miami-Dade Fire Department. While he didn’t die in battle, I would like to take this opportunity to say how proud I am of him and all the other service men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting people around the globe.
Today the polish I have for you is Cosmic Fate from the Color Club Halo Hues 2013 collection. Holographic polishes have recently been the ‘apple of my eye’, and when I saw some swatches of the colors in this set, I had to get them. I have a couple other Color Club polishes and have had good experiences with all of them. This is a beautiful light copper/peach colored liner holographic polish and really leaps off the nail in full sunlight. These are my first strong holo colors and I have to say that I am sorry I waited so long to buy any. The color shift in these polishes is mesmerizing and it’s actually a good thing they aren’t quite as animated under the glow of florescent lighting lest I might not get any work done in the course of my business day. Below are shots with indirect sunlight and indoors with a flash. All are two layers with a top coat.

I found these polishes at enospring, and their service was exceptional! I ordered on a Thursday and had it in my mailbox on Monday! They are in NJ and I am in PA, so that helped I’m sure LOL, and their packaging was very secure. All around it was a very pleasant experience!
As always, thanks for reading! I hope you have a great week!
