Above and Below: These were all taken outdoors, some in the sun, others in the shade. I used 2 coats and the coverage was very good and the drying time was quick. This is a green shade with silver glitter that also appears as a blue-green at times.
Above & Below: The finish/glitter type reminds me of OPI Suede polishes or the Orly Foil FX polishes, only this has a glossy finish. I should have mattified it, but I love it the way it is.
Below: After I took my nail pictures, I took some pictures of what's blooming in our back yard.
Above & Below: The Peony bush is really pretty right now, and here are the stages of the blossoms. I wish they lasted longer, but they're pretty while they're around.
Below: The smaller Clematis vines have bloomed, but our big one is still budding. I'll take some pictures of that one next week.
Below: Here's a pink flower--ha-ha! I can't remember what this one's called without looking in my notebook I keep. I think it's some type of Geranium.
Below: This is the miniature Pansy.
Below: This is the mess I need to tend to tomorrow, if it doesn't rain. The plants in the front are White Astilbe. This little garden area is in the back corner and tends to get ignored, so I'm going to try and clean it up a bit. I still have more to plant, but hopefully that'll get done soon, although it never really seems to end!
I got lost in all of the floral pictures--I could spend as much time in the local nurseries and greenhouses as I could nail polish shopping--back to the Sation! I bought a bunch of these from Victoria Nail Supply last year for $1.25 each, and have also picked up a few at a local beauty supply for about the same price. They're nothing terribly special, but they do have some really pretty shades, like High Tech. I know I have several earth tone shades and a red one, but this one and Blue Suede Shoes are probably my favorite.
