I don’t have the largest polish stash ever, but generally speaking – if I need a color, I pretty much have it in some variation (and usually several of them)! I don’t know what prompted it, but the other day I NEEDED a periwinkle-colored polish and… I didn’t have one! I checked my swatch sticks to be sure – I have plenty of light blues and lavenders, but nothing that straddles those two color worlds. That definitely needed to be remedied!
This weeks threadly challenge on the BHB was to use an ugly polish and try to redeem it via nail art. I thought I had the perfect polish to use, but when I actually applied it, I fell in love. Seriously, I don’t think there is a color out there I don’t like.
Since I recently went a bit crazy picking up Sinful Colors that I didn’t have, I went ahead and got the new purple polish called Flight to See. The other two polishes from this grouping (all bird related names) are probably on my need to pick up list!
I love geometric patterns and that is often what I am drawn to the most when it comes to stamping. I’ve wanted a plate with houndstooth for a long time and I have to admit it was one of the images I was most excited for on my new Bundle Monster XL plates. Simple pleasures, right?
Of course, being so enamored of Fall Semester, I needed to do some kind of nail art and I tend to prefer to stamp over polishes that sparkle. It was actually difficult to decie on a stamp for this, because I didn’t want to cover up the holo goodness too much.
