Rose Coloured Glasses

RCG Bottle

This is the manicure I wore last night when my husband and I went out to celebrate the 13th anniversary of our first date.  It’s just a simple combination of Whimsical Ideas by Pam’s Rose Coloured Glasses over KB Shimmer’s dusky blue Stonewashed – probably the kind of thing I could have pulled off even 13 years ago, were it not for the fact that pre-date, I was so worked up (positively thrumming with excited/nervous energy) I never could have held a polish brush!  And I wasn’t really into nail polish back then.  This whole nail art business is a fairly recent addition to my life.

Ha, except now that I’m thinking about it, I DID paint my nails the night of our first date – black, with blood red middle finger accent nails.  I also wore an Emily the Strange hoodie with cat ears (and, ahem, paw mitts.) Yeah, I was that girl!  Still am, as these are the cat ears I wore last night to go along with this manicure!

Skinamarinky Pinky Pink!

Sing it with me now!  “Skinamarinky doo…I! LOVE! YOOOOOOUUUUU!” And I really kind of love this manicure, too, even though it didn’t quite turn out as I had intended.  I was going for a kind of all-pink galaxy look here, but the three pink base polishes I sponged on were all sort of samey (in that they were all blue shimmer-enhanced, bubblegum pinks), leading to a kind of muddled and unidentifiable mess.  But a pretty mess!  So pretty, especially when topped with two coats of Rose Coloured Glasses, an all-fuchsia holo glitter positively brimming with purple-flashing hexes and stars.
