Mother's Day NOTD: Secret Periwinkle & My Hydrangea

Above and Below: China Glaze Secret Periwinkle. Below you can see some of the flowers are a perfect periwinkle blue, some more lavender.
Above and Below: 2 coats and it's perfect. Below is a full shot of the Hydrangea.

Above and Below: I thought it would be fun to top it off with Sinful's!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mom's! Yesterday, the florist delivered a lovely Hydrangea plant from my husband for Mother's Day and my first thought was, 'Secret Periwinkle.' I really need to stop associating things to nail polish colors, but who agrees with me on this one? Of course I had to do a quick manicure and see if I was right. It looks pretty close to me! We're going to plant this in the yard in a few days, but until then, I'm just enjoying it in the house. I also received an Amethyst Calla Lily last night from my stepson and daughter-in-law that's really beautiful. The blooms are cream and pale purple/plum, a bit variegated, so you can be sure I'll coordinate some polish to it and share that with you during the next week. I know, I'm a bit of a freak!


  1. awww i really ! want Secret Periwinkle but iv not seen it yet :(

  2. Maybe this will go with my next order too, it's so sweet!

  3. How pretty and yes it! Hottie gave the perwinkle a nice sparkle. I like how your finding polish to match the flowers. Happy Mothers Day!

  4. Happy Mothers Day! I love this! I've been lemming Secrect Periwinkle since it came out! I plan on putting it on my next order. I have the Hottie already. I just love Sinful's glitters.

  5. It really matches, it's lovely! And the Hydrangea is very pretty; Happy Mother's Day! :)

  6. Happy Mother's Day. Wow it really is a match, lovely. :)

  7. Gorgeous nails, gorgeous flowers! Lucky you!

  8. Oh I love it, polish & flower match!!! hahaha but for some reason I like Secret Periwinkle alone, without glitters =) i think it's just me not loving glitters in general LOL

    Happy Mother's Day, Mary *hugs*

  9. Nail Polish Junkie~It's a very unique color, isn't it? I ordered mine and have never seen it in an actual store.

    Alexlyndra~your next order sounds like it's getting bigger and bigger :)

    Velvet~thanks! It's fun matching, but this was just too perfect not to photograph!

    Kitty~I hope you're having fun with the kids today! You must order this one, for sure and I agree, Sinful makes great glitters.

    Vanessa~thank you, it was a fantastic match! Thank you for the Mother's Day wishes and you enjoy yours later this month!

    Clockwork~thanks you for the wishes and I'm glad you enjoyed the 'match' :)

    Helen~thay are gorgeous colors. Periwinkle was always my favorite crayon color!

    Nanzy~I liked it alone too, but the glitter was kind of fun to see what it would do to it. Thanks for the wishes and the hug :)

  10. oh wow - that looks awesome! Happy mother's day!

  11. Hope you had a nice Mother's Day. I love hydrangeas. You know your a nail fanatis when you associate a nail polish with a flower color! Now you have to find one to match your calla lilly.

  12. Looks like quite a match to me, and the Hottie really set it off. Your flowers look beautiful!! That;s great that you can replant these in your garden, what a great idea!

  13. Nixxy~thank you for the wishes and I'm happy you like the polish!

    Lucy~I've already been looking for something that may match the lily. I'll post it in a couple of days :)

    Brooke~I was really happy when I saw what it was so I could replant it and keep it forever (or until I kill it!).
