It's gonna be a long day....

Having a fabulous day so far, and it is only 11 am!  (Sarcasm, I am cranky!!)  It is going to be hot, the pollen is killing me, and Mother Nature decided to leave me a gift...  Not to mention, my back and my knee are driving me crazy.  Sigh, is it bedtime yet??

I had mani issues last night, I re-did my nails 3 times and I am still not happy!  First I used Gosh Purple Heart, and was not thrilled with my application, so I took that off and put on Funky Fingers Moonwalk.  That also looked like crap, and was gritty.  That was my second time using it and I still didn't like it, so I think that is going up for swap, if anyone wants it!  Next I pulled out China Glaze Stroll, which is gorgeous, but once again, my application was slightly crappy, so no pictures.  I may try to clean it up some more and get pictures for you in a bit.  I do have some pictures of a NOTD I did a few days ago to show you, so all is not lost!!

I received this in a swap from a lovely Canadian NBer, since it is not available in the US yet.  This is Revlon Minted.  I have heard that some people had problems with the formula, but I didn't.  This is 3 coats, plus SV.

I love this color.  Some pastels tend to give me lobster hands, but this one didn't.  It is very Spring-y, don't you think?  I started playing around with Cover Girl City Lights, and I ended up with this:

I think it looks like fairy wings!!  It was very pretty and sparkley!!  

Anyway, that's all I have for now, I will see what I can do to make Stroll look better because it is really gorgeous!

Until Later,

Here's hoping your day gets better! I am loving this fairy-wings look...that's exactly what it reminded me of!

Ohh, I've been wanting to see Minted. I think it looks nice. I have that issue all the time where I do my nails and don't like the result. Being a perfectionist sucks sometimes.

I love the pastels! This one is really nice! Love it with the sparkle too!

thanks y'all!! Minted is one of my new favorites, and I think it may be my favorite out of all the ones I have put City Lights over!! It totally matched The Princess's Tinkerbell toy's wings, LOL!
