Holo & Orchids

I have a fun layering combination to share with you today!

When I was trying out the LASplash nail polish, I also may have happened upon a large and expensive nail polish lot on eBay that I quickly purchased but am too ashamed to admit how much I spent. Needless to say, I now own all of the China Glaze OMG Collection and half of the Kaleidoscope collection. Sigh. Who needs money anyway when you have holos? Can I get an amen?

So here we have a beautiful layering combination that was meant for each other ... LASplash Retro and China Glaze He's Going In Circles. LASplash Retro is the perfect background because it's the same color so it doesn't alter CG HGIC at all, just makes it more opaque with less wastage. Yes, I just made wastage a word.




I think I may start labeling my pictures with the colors, but I'm not sure if I like it. Feels like it's a bit cluttered. Thoughts?

And just because I can ... I'm going to share some pretty pictures with you today. My husband has a knack for taking care of orchids and we have three right now that are all blooming! Well, one is blooming, the others are still sprouting buds. They're so pretty. He said I should do a nail look using the flower as inspiration - and I think that man have finally had a good idea. Hehe. I'm so mean to him.


That was a week or so ago. Then they bloomed ...


Sorry about the camera phone pic in the bottom, but I was to excited to grab my reg camera. Isn't it pretty with the dots of purple and the delicate crinkling of the petals? And the yellow/burnt orange in the center. AND the strange little curling tendrils at the bottom (WTF are those anyway?). Sigh. too beautiful.

Holo and orchids! What more could you ask for? =) Hope everyone is having a good day!

  10. This is such a great color; a nice green that's not too yellowish, and it's delicate and springy! (And it's close to the color one of my friends used as an accent color for her wedding dress!)
