Nail Spam #1

Good morning! And what a beautiful morning it is here in the PNW.  The sun is actually shining.  We haven't had much of a summer so far, lots of rain and cloudy days.  Contrary to popular believe, it does not always rain here in Washington.  We actually have really beautiful summers, and that's what I love so much about it here.

I feel like I'm running around a lot these last couple of days.  I'm sort of a procrastinator, and I realized yesterday its a little bit more than a month before one of my cousins wedding, and that includes planning a trip to Lake Tahoe where the wedding is.....good job Angie.  After looking at different hotels down there, I find out most of them are booked for the weekend I need.  And we still haven't decided if we are driving of flying down there.  I think it would be fun to do a little road trip, as we have never done such a long one before, so we are leaning more toward that.

Anyways, I'm going to break these post down into a few spam posts as I have A LOT of nail pics to show you.  I didn't realize I had so many, as I really didn't go out of my way to take nail pics on my hiatus.  And I will apologize now that I don't remember formulas and application on most of these.  So here we go!


a-England's Ascalon. What a GORGEOUS polish!  Holographic duochrome? Yes please!



I also did my first "fish egg" mani with it.


a-England's Princess Tears.  I'm 99.9% sure this is Princess Tears.  It just doesn't look much like it.  Again, its a holographic duochrome, and I loved it!



Barielle's Falling Star.  This has been a lemming of mine for a while, and I picked it up recently on Hautlook and I'm glad I did.  This is one of those polishes that has a love/hate following, and I happen to love it.  I think the reason it has a hate following is that the copper glitter doesn't sparkle, but that's why I love it so much.  I'm so glad I finally picked this one up, the royal blue is stunning.



China Glaze Ahoy.  I already have quite a few colors like this, and I'm working on thinning my stash.




China Glaze Fast Track.  If you have been following my blog for a while, you might know how much I LOVE colors like this. Ahh gold shimmer!  This is very close to one of my absolute favorite polishes Essence Irreplaceable, so this one is not going anywhere!



China Glaze Flying Dragon (neon).  The GOOD version of Flying Dragon!  I've showed you the bad version before (please don't laugh at my crappy pics!!), and the good version just more than makes up for it.  It is awesome!



Essie Navigate Her.  This is seriously one of my favorite colors this year.  Would never have guessed it as greens tend to look very unflattering on me, but pistachio greens apparently look awesome on me.  I've been so obsessed with these kinda greens this year, I've picked up a few others.



And last but not least is Milani's Tip Toe Pink.  A lovely bubblegum pink.  I realized I didn't have any Barbie pinks in my collection like this, but now I do, and I really loved this one.



I hope you all have a fantastic day, and that your weather is as gorgeous as mine....I need to get out in it like NOW!!  So see ya!

  4. Your fish egg accent nail with Ascalon is TO DIE FOR! So pretty! Falling Star was such a huge lemming of mine, too, but when I got it from the Barielle website it was super thick and gross. I should try it again soon and add some thinner; your swatch has inspired me!
