The weather this weekend was perfect. Blue skies, puffy white clouds, a gentle breeze...I should have went to the beach! (Doh!) Even though we spent the weekend running errands and doing household chores, at least the weather was nice while we were doing it. I did manage to perk up my nails for the weekend. From the new China Glaze Poolside collection:
China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, indirect sun
A nice cheery yellow, it does still have a pitfall common to yellow nail polish: streaking. I had to use four coats to even out the color. One thing that helped was to let the polish dry a bit between coats. It did dry matte as neon polish does, so a nice shiny topcoat is in order (unless you want the matte look).
That was Saturday's look. On Sunday morning I decided something was missing (and I noticed some bubbling I wanted to cover up). Someone had encouraged me to order the Bundle Monster image plates from Amazon last Monday which arrived very quickly. I had to test them out didn't I? I mean, how could I not?
With China Glaze Heli-Yum nail stamp (Bundle Monster plate 12), direct sun
Dear husband and I had dinner with my mom last night and she called them "kitchen nails". The color and design remind her of these plastic containers she used to see for storing sugar, flour, etc. back in the early '80s. I kind of remember green bins with similar white flowers myself...I feel retro. XD
Next time: a franken!
