For six weeks or so, I’ve been in the process of packing and moving houses. One of the things from my usual routine that was pushed to the wayside was my regular manicures. Granted, my nails probably needed a bit of time without polish anyway, but I sorely missed it. :)
I’m just now starting to paint them again. Currently I’m at my old house, waiting while the carpets are being cleaned. Since I’m just sitting here, I thought I’d show you guys what I’m wearing today…

(Such a pretty blue!)
Super glittery purple polish. :) I painted two coats of A-England Avalon and then two coats of Girly Bits Purple Potion…

Today I have a purpley-periwinkle polish called Fancy Pants from the China Glaze Avant Garden collection. I ended up stamping on top of it, but first here are the plain polish photos. It looks much more blue-ish in person. I love the subtle pink shimmer in it…
Then I did some stamping on it. :)

China Glaze’s Budding Romance is a “so ugly it’s cool” olive green polish from the Avant Garden collection. I kind of loved it. :)
I did have to do three thick coats, however. I must have been in a hurry because I got some bubbles, but it wasn’t too noticeable. In fact, I didn’t even notice until I was editing the photos.
I can’t. stop. staring. at. my nails. Love this color so much!
Today’s manicure: two coats of Julep Eloise (navy), with one coat Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean. :)
The above photos were taken with my iPhone the morning after I painted my nails (in natural light). Here’s a shot with my big momma camera (Canon 50D) taken the night before right after painting my nails (desk lamp)…
And one the next morning in natural light with the big momma camera…
