♥ Maybelline - 'Blue Aluminum'

~ ahhhhhh sunshine, finally ~
 & below indoors

My 100th post! WOW! I was surprised to see that I have had 6200-ish visits, of course at least 1500 are me, checking to see who has updated their blogs...... This is lots of fun and I did check out blogger a few years ago, but did not have anything to contribute. I had previously taken pictures of my long natural nails, but not with the quality that I am taking pictures now, I will hunt around my old pictures and see what I can find.

Here is an awesome antique polish I scored for $1.00 at a discount shop in my town. This may be older, but it applies perfectly, and dries sooooo fast. It is a pretty baby blue foil that catches the light so beautifully. I am sad that I do not have any fuzzy pictures to post. This is 2 coats, with 1 coat of China Glaze Fast Forward.... which picked up a bit of the blue polish when I was putting the CG Fast forward on... weird. But it still looks pretty.

That red mark is a burn I got from a hot glue gun, the melted glue dripped on me = OUCH!

I am trying to get the same pose but from different angels and camera settings and lighting. It is Friday night here, and I am getting ready to settle down with my DH and a big bowl of chips. So no epic writing....
~♥~ Have an awesome weekend! ~♥~

Hi! I love metallics, but they can't seem to work well with me. Always streaky. It looks really good on your nails tho!

~ Mary ~ thank you

~ Kitty ~ Thanks, that tiny bit of glue had me tearing up, it was just a tiny little blob too!

~ velvet ~ I enjoy taking the photos and writing in my blog, I wish I got into his a while ago! I miss sending massive emails to my friends/family and such, and so this is good way for me to keep up on my typing skills.

~ Clockwork~ Thank you! This is a really pretty color. I almost passed on it.

~ Nail Fanatic ~ I really lucked out on the last few 'cheap-ee' metallic-foil polish's I have picked up. On some of the more common brands you need like 4 coats to get it right! Hope you find one that works out for you soon!

~ Lucy ~ Thank you - I do hope my photos come across okay - they seem okay to me. and I do love the wrighting also.

~ Tuli ~ You are so sweet! Thank you so much.

~ Zaz ~ Thank you , this really is a special color.

~ Robyn ~ Thank you it is a pretty blue, I am soooo thankful I find all these bargains.
