Priti Flowers for Spring

Priti polishes are among my favorites for a couple reasons: first, they are normally all opaque in two easy coats, second, the brush is spectacular for my deep nail beds, and third, the colors are unique and classy. I chose a deep brown to accent with a few dottie flowers to jazz them up a tad. Poshe over all and I'm done!

Out of My Comfort Zone- Pale Green!

Pale celery/mint greens aren't normally my first choice- vivid yellow greens are, but I've been wearing brights for a few days and wanted to try my first every Philly Loves Lacquer I bought from a blog sale- I Love You a Lime. This was a Holo Grail box offering I managed to snag! I paired it with a few accent nails of KBShimmer Spring Training, a happy crelly full of Eastery glitters which leans a tiny bit more mint (blueish) to me. The scattered holo is hard to see in the PLL but the gold micro flakes are not. Poshe over and I'm office friendly! I used three thin coats of each, LOVE the PLL flat square ended brush!

Nailing a lemming right thru the heart

oh and what a beast it was. I'd been longingly eying the GOMM collection at Rescue Beauty Lounge since it first hit the scene in 2012. I had never paid more than $10 for a polish at that time and the thought of shelling out $18 plus postage for one bottle gave me palpitations! I have  accumulated three or four RBLs just this year from swaps but when this dusty beauty became available in a sale I jumped on it like rice on mice.  I even got one of the "illegal" bottles Ji mentioned in her explanation to the nail community over the problems she was having  here. Regardless, the gorgeous clay orange with green shimmer called Sante Fe (Road) is now mine, all mine! One coat covered totally I used 2 out of habit. After a day of wear I gilded the tips with the incomparable Glitter Daze chrome flakie Nymphomaniac. Not sure these pictures convey the green shimmer in the RBL nor the overall golden effect of the flakies, but I'm swooning! (and I use that word with the utmost discretion)

Office Friendly- as long as the sun isn't shining...

Gorgeous nearly one coat Barry M Chai accented with deliriously holo More Cowbell from Girly Bits- there is a blue flash sparkle in there I just can't get with my phone.
