Hello and happy Friday! It would have been a happier Friday if I was at the park watching a movie with my friends as I planned to be. However, the CTA decided that was not to be. I waited for a half an hour for the bus, checking on it via text for that whole time, only to learn it wasn't coming. I still could have made it to the park, but by then, I was in a horrible mood and was all hot and sweaty. All I could think of was my couch, so I just headed home. Not an auspicious start to the weekend at all. Hopefully, tomorrow will be more cooperative.
In any case, I hit Sally's yesterday and picked up a few new polishes and I have one to show you!
This is China Glaze Ride the Waves from their Summer Neon Collection. It. Is. Gorgeous. End of story! From the top is an indoor shot, a shot in the shade and a shot in the sun. Looks pretty good from every angle, yes? I have to admit when I started applying this, I was a little disappointed because it's pretty dark, almost navy, when wet. It didn't look anything like what I'd hoped it would until it dried and I got a top coat on it. Then it was love! The formula was nice and applied easily. It's kind of a like a jelly, but not exactly. I'm wearing 3 thin coats here...you can kind of see the nail line if you look closely, but not enough to bother me.
And, because I couldn't possibly leave the house with just a single color of polish on my nails, I had to bling it up a bit.
I used the flowers from Cina's Midsummer Dream nail art kit and the glittery flower shapes from their Champagne Toast kit. It's a nice touch for a summer manicure and the yellow and orange colors over the blue makes a nice contrast.
So, I'm determined to have a better evening than how it started out. I think I'll chill out on the couch and watch Say Yes to the Dress. I love that show even though I have no real desire to get married myself :) Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have fantastic Friday nights!
