NOTD 179 – Featured Color Friday – Icey Duo

Happy Friday and Happy Holidays (just in case I am not able to post again for a while with the upcoming craziness) 🙂

As I said in my last post, I picked up Butter London’s Double Take Ice Duo at Ulta the other day. It’s … amazing! I absolutely loved the formula of both of my first ever Butter’s. The blue is just as stunning as I’d hope it’d be from the looking at it in the bottle. and I actually like the glass shardy ice topper and I wasn’t sure I would.

This is the website’s description: Opaque, navy shimmer. A twist on the traditional style of dress in British private schools.

I am totally in love with my new blue and topper… Although as I said in my last post, due to the price this will probably be my only Butter’s unless I can find another amazing sale!

A very merry unbirthday to me! Don’t forget, I also picked up the Double Take Fire Duo and it’s up for grabs right now for my Birthday Giveaway #1! ***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

*Picture Heavy* My Polish Addiction (Updated)

This is an update to my Polish Addiction Post, the original can be found here. My dad made this shelf for me, and it’s been a work in progress ever since. I wanted to paint it, so my husband and I did three coats of a nice Cherry finish and two gloss top coats. I went to put it back and it kept tipping because it’s sitting on carpet, and it’s sooo heavy. I did not want to have another issue like I did here because that was just not cool. 😦 I have been procrastinating in getting brackets to secure the shelf to the wall and, FINALLY this weekend we put it up for real 😀 I also finished all my swatches  that I have been working on for a while now, so I had a very productive Saturday. Here is the final product. 🙂 ❤

And here are some pictures up close of my Collection, I will be updating my collection page here soon with a full list of my Collection.

Day 2/3 Orange & Yellow – 31Challenge

Day 2 and three will be click as  I only have ONE orange and ONE yellow and I already used them for the nail art in day one. I also do not like the yellow or orange choices that I have.. 😦 Shown above is “Spoiled by Wet n wild – Don’t be cheesy”

one coat

two coats

Finished product

This polish as I have said in my day 1 post is a little watery .. but hard to not get a lot of polish on the brush it’s weird… but I guess that is what you get for $1.99 sometimes.. lol

Okay and as promised, here is day 3 , yellow – Shown above from left to right is “Avon – Splendid Blue” , “Spoiled by wet n wild – Designated Driver” , “OPI’s – Grape, Set, Match” , and “Ulta’s – Envy”

I did a little play on a Mardi Gras nail design but not too detailed since it wasn’t staying on long at all, since again I hate this yellow on my nails and skin tone.

I put a couple of drops of nail polish on a plate of the purple, the blue, and the green. I then took a toothpick to make cascading dots on my ring finger to represent the beads. my pinky has a purple stripe in the middle and then on either side of it is the blue and the green. The middle finger has a blue tip and the pointer finger purple. Unfortunately this picture did not capture the colors as much as I would have wanted it to. Plus unfortunately the shades were very close to each other.

Hope you liked my quick Day 2/3 🙂 stay tuned for green tomorrow! 🙂
