It's not easy being green...

Sorry for the Kermit reference, and I hope that I didn't give you an earworm!  The Princess is on a Muppets kick lately, we have the first season on DVD and I have seen it 90 bajillion times.

The last two polishes I have worn have been green.  I was over the dark, vampy winter colors, so I picked OPI Who the Shrek are You?  I am a huge fan of this color!  It is bizarre, yet pretty.

I wore it for a day or so, and then I started craving the Tronica polishes...  Since I can't go to CosmoProf to get them, I decided to make my own holo.  I put a coat of OPI DS Original over WTSAY and got this:

Not perfect, but it satisfied me for a day, LOL! 

I finally broke down and bought my 2nd Essie polish ever.  I am lazy though, so I ordered from Walmart online..even though there is a Walmart across the street from my neighborhood...  I got Sew Psyched finally!  I am an idiot or waiting so long, this color is gorgeous!  I love the dusty look of it.

I love it, and since I heard it is a dupe for RBL Diddy Mow (which I never got because I am a cheapskate) it makes me even happier that I bought it.  This is definitely one I will be wearing often.

Until Later,

Happy (Belated) New Year

I hope every one is having a good year so far.  Sorry that I have been missing, but the holidays were crazy and then I got sick!  I spent New Year's eve and New Years Day clutching tissues and whining about being sick.  Now that I am feeling better, I have a few things to show you!

First, these are a couple of polishes I won from Jackie S. at Candy Coated Tips.  (her Valentine Kisses giveaway).

First, Sally Hansen Pat on the Black.  This is a deep maroon-ish color that wanted to photograph black!  You can tell it is not black thanks to my horrid application, though!

Next, is Wet n Wild Rock Solid Nail Polish in Quartz of Course.  This is a rosy color, that gave me Nana hands, LOL!!  It is very pretty, but a bit to tame for me, I think. 

Last, but definitely not least, we have Hard Candy Beetle.  I had Mr. Ski brave Walmart for me to get this, it was cute!  I have been making him do all the scouting for me lately, he has looked for Revlon Perplex and Milani Gems (unsuccessfully, boo) for me as well.  Sweet, right?

Anyway, Beetle is one of the most gorgeous polishes I have worn in a while, and I actually managed to get semi decent pictures of it!

I love this one, I will probably wear it to death!!

That's all I have for the moment, I need to start swatching a few more things I have gotten recently.  I also need to get my grubby little paws on the ChG Tronica and some of the Anchors Away polishes....

Until Later,
