Zoya Gem

As I'm going through my old pictures, I notice that my cuticles are all jacked up in a lot of the pictures. I think it's because I was painting my nails several times a day and they were not happy with that. I'll get through most of them pretty soon and start posting new pictures that I just took. Yayyyy!

 Jem is such a weird color. From one angle it's purple. Then from another angle it's a bit gold. BUT then when I use my flash, it looks completely dark purple. The picture of the bottle shows it the best I think.

Yayy flash. You can see that it is sparkly. And if you don't know...I love me some sparkly.

Butter London "Knees Up"

 The name itself sounds inappropriate. Or is it just me? I may/may not just have a dirty mind. So I found this old swatch on my computer and I'm going to just randomly post it because I can. Ignore the fact that I ruined a perfectly good manicure with the stupid Konad. I thought it was a good idea at the time until after I finished stamping. Which is probably the reason why I never actually posted the pictures.
 So see....things are nice and pretty.
 Different angle of nice and pretty

Still nice and pretty

 And then this is when shit got weird

....I really have no idea what I was thinking. But I'm posting it anyways because it kinda looks like a cow print. And cows are cool. Kinda.

Marina with a little Konad

Let me just start off by saying...I kinda forgot I had a blog. Once it hit me and I remembered "oh yeah...I used to spend a lot of time on the internet and looking at nail blogs", I felt slightly guilty. Not that anyone actually reads this or follows this, but it used to be a nice little outlet or a way for me to be super excited about my polish when I knew no one else (the boyfriend) cared. SO I'm going to TRY to make an attempt to start this back up..again. Even though I say that or think that after every post. Then I go several months without posting again. This shits hard. No joke.

Here is just some polish eye candy for you. I didn't really like Marina by Zoya. I mean I LOVE the formula and the fact that its shimmery and the glitter is so fine. But the color itself was just "meh" for me. Probably because I'm trying to wear it in the middle of the summer. I might grab it again in the fall and/or winter. But for now it's just "meh".

I tried to add a little Konad to spice it up. Still meh lol. But now I think the Konad was a little bit too much. I should have just left it as a accent nail.

The second picture came out a little bit lighter for some reason. But it is more true to the color.
