China Glaze “Calypso Blue” (A.K.A. the class-monster)

I got a huge Transdesign haul the other day, and the ration of blues to EVERYTHING ELSE evidences my exploration of my possible love for blues.

This polish affirmed my love, and will take me to the next level of my obsession.

This is China Glaze “Calypso Blue.” Like Calypso (the nymph) in mythology, this polish brought me to it fairly innocently, but trapped me inside of it (not for seven years, but who’s going to nitpick? not me!). It’s so pretty. In the sunlight (which didn’t exist in my life while I was taking these pictures) it’s a dusty navy blue creme, that reminds me of these awesome corduroy pants that I had as a kid. The good thing about it, though, is that even in the lack of light, it doesn’t turn completely black, it still has some light to it. I put in some flash photos so you can see the base color, even though it is never (AND I EMPHASIZE NEVER) that color. It’s a beautiful polish. And I have to apologize for the chipping and tipwear, I’ve had this on for three days (GASP! I think that this is the longest I’ve worn one color of nail polish since the summer!!!!)

So here are the gorgy pictures!

love,

Frida

Patience is a virtue (that i do not posses)

So, I was walking around the downtown of my hometown, thinking about green nail polish, and how strongly I feel about it. And then, what appear before me but a walgreens! (or maybe I walked two blocks out of my way to find it… Anyways! Haha) of course I found myself in the nail polish aisle, where what would be happening other than a sale of sinful colors! And what kind of nail polish addict would I be if I didn’t snatch some up right there and then! And then of course pick up some sally Hansen just to round it out! And as this post from the comfort of my iPhone may suggest, I am impatient and swatches them right here on San Francisco public transportation! So here are the three beauties in my mini drug store haul! From left to right: sinful colors show me the way,¬†sinful colors nail junkie,¬†Sally hansen gunmetal.
