We have enjoyed a quite, tranquil holiday weekend at home. Just me, hubs and the two cats.
And I have got a lot of swatching done. It wasn't work at all. More like playing.
I wanted to try a green polish and use 'Hidden Treasure' over it, then matte it. I think most of my readers will truly understand how these combinations will just pop into your head. Well, at least they do for me. In fact, some nights I fall asleep coming up with creations and then dream about them.
So, I dug in the unswatched pile, and found Ulta's 'Jaded.' Perfect, I wanted to try a green that wasn't from a Holiday collection.
All my photos here are indoor lighting. I'm right at my desk and just loved the light at the moment.
Now for the flakies. I was going to do this all with Sally Hansen's 'Hidden Treasure.' But as I dug in my unswatched stack, I found an Essence's 'Space Queen'. I know they are not even close, but I wanted to see what they'd look like side by side.
You've heard that song by The Stones, 'Paint It Black'? It goes, "I see a red door and I want to paint it black." Just what in the hell does that mean??? Well, I see a pretty color and I want to paint it matte.
Sparkles or matte? Hidden Treasure or Space Queen?
And, I would like to share with you, my Ultimate Favorite Christmas song: Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Canon.
