The Lacquer Ring – Purple

So I had a post all planned out, I was going to paint my nails using this gorgeous holo glitter that Lesley gave me and no such luck.. So I was going to paint my nails last night with it, I know last minute.. serves me right. Well all of the sudden we had noticed that the floor in our Laundry Room was wet and my washer had been leaking. We moved the middle ‘agitator’ and the drum had water under it.. what the pluck. So we have been having a lot of issues with it and it’s capacity so this morning we bought a new washer dryer set because our dryer has been going as well. In any event I forgot to do my damn nails so I am cycling an old post that I never posted that’s why I have a leaf stamped.. lol

This Month Cynthia is back up from Of Life and Lacquer and first up for color she chose purple. This is Figgy Pudding by Smitten Polish. This was part of their Christmas/Winter Collection and was seriously my favorite Holiday Collection and this my favorite color of all of the collections I got. Believe me, I got quite a few collections around that time. lol

Smitten’s website describes this Jem as a purple jelly base filled with subtly shifting reddish bronze flakies and shimmer. With that I decided to use Essie’s Penny Talk to stamp a leaf as an accent on one of my nails I figured it would really make the flakes pop and I think that’s true.¬† Although with or without this stamp the flakes pop and are gorgeous on their own too.

NOTD 131 – Featured Color Friday – Winter is Coming

Well guys, I am back this week with an all new Featured Color Friday for those of you that missed this last week!

A while back, I had gotten Jessica over at Once Upon a Polish¬†“Smitten Polish – Winter is Coming” The polish is named and based after the HBO Series, Game of Thrones (and books of course); A show in which we share a similar love for <3. This gorgeous creamy jellie¬†also has bright blue like¬†royal/cobalt hexagonal glequins, along with teenie white and baby blue glitter mixed in. Once I saw Jessica do a swatch of this, I knew I too, had to have it!

For sure this polish quickly climbed its way to the top of my list of favorite polishes! Just gorgeous! I painted 2-3 coats on each nail. The creaminess¬†to the Jellie¬†definitely¬†helped with non-noticeable nail lines unlike¬†“Pink Lemonade II” that I just did, where I had to use ‘underwear’. So far, I am loving both of the Smittens that I have tried and can’t wait to go back and order more! ūüôā

Have a good weekend everyone!
