The Color Lilac

Last week I picked up one of the new Finger Paints. I thought I wanted the orange shimmer but when I saw them in person Aren't You Glad-iolous followed me home. I'm not sure what the name is supposed to mean but I laughed a little when I read it. Usually my new polishes sit in storage for awhile but I was anxious to give it a try. It's a thick and gorgeous blueberry-lilac cream.

To my surprise it went on with one coat and dried in about 15 minutes. This is the first time I haven't used a quick dry in months! I topped it off with Essie Matte About You and stamped with one of the old school Sally Hansen chrome polishes, Royal Purple Chrome.


Here she is au naturel. Just lovely!

  5. This color is really awesome on you. I didn't find it that gorgeous when I saw it at the store. I think I'm going to have to re-think that decision. :)

  7. There's a flower called a gladiola, so I'm guessing that's what they're referring to. I love the color!

    @Cherish. Purple is one of my favs also. I really need to do more purple manis.

    @Trincess. Thank you (blush)

    @Tamara. That's what I was thinking.

    @Zara. I've never heard of it before but I just googled it. Very pretty.

    @ABOP. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

    @Kimberly. I already had colors similar to the rest of the collection and I'm supposed to be on a low-buy. I might go back and get Carnation Creation though. The swatches are so pretty.

    Thanks again ladies. I hope you all are having a great Saturday!!!
