Crappy cellphone pic again :/ first time trying a colored French tip not sure how I feel about it... Looked a bit plain so tried a leopard print on the thumb. Needs work. I really like this midnight blue color its just a bit overwhelming on the whole nail

Oooh, Caitlin is pretty!
Based on a phone the reflection looked more suited to your skin tone. I love bright colors as long as skin tone is taken into consideration for flattering ones!

OPI's Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

It's a really pretty, bright pink but I hate that it takes me 4 coats to get even coverage.

I only do my toes. I just took off Opi's Suzi Loves Cowboys and put on Opi Nicole You're S-teal the One.

It's quite a change.

Some flower-power style stick on "Salon Effects" from Sally Hansen. I did an okay job of applying, so will wait until tomorrow to apply a topcoat in hopes that rough edges will either flatten or fall off overnight.

So much easier than painting!

Toes are a turquoise color that is supposed to change color depending on the temperature. I don't see any change but I like the color and the satin finish. A sparkly butterfly decal on one big toe.

Fingers are Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Rapid red, a perfect shade of red. A sparkly flower decal on one thumb.

It's just some cheapo polish my sister bought me. Possibly from LTD Commodities. It comes in pink, turquoise, and purple (sparkles). I have only tried the turq color and love the matte/satin finish. I'll take a pic when I get a chance.

I cut mine down about all the way and left them plain. My fingers feel short now, lol.

I really don't want to do much color until I buy a base coat that will prevent the yellowing I got a few weeks ago.

Okay, I want that stuff.

Pita just had to get in the pic, didn't she?

Your feet are tan? Your feet are tan!

I also have a tattoo on my foot, btw.

Here they are. $8.95 for all 3 plus shipping.
They also have them on ebay but for a higher price.

I got that tat a few years ago. The most painful one of all of mine. I said no more of that. Then a month later got the other foot done. : )
Pit was waiting for our daily lunch time on the porch.
I'm tan all over. Yes I still go in the sun.

Oh no! Look at all these color changing polishes!! Dang it. Now I want them.http://cgi.ebay.com/LOT-7-mood-chang...item2565743bef

I also noticed the Revlon scented polishes awhile back. I loved the patchouli scented black polish I had in the 70's. Back then it was odd for anyone to wear black polish, but I did anyway.

Did you see the shipping price?

I would have worn patchouli scented polish, too. I have a cuticle oil that's slightly fruity smelling, but I'd much prefer patchouli.

LTDs shipping if prob $4-5. Some of the ones on ebay had free ship but higher prices. I didn't look at them all tho, so there might be some cheaper ones on there.
