4Blues Water Marble

Happy Monday, everyone.

I banged out a new water marble last week, this time marbling all 10 fingers. And I was pleased to no end that none of the nails needed a re-do. Woot!

Polishes used:
China Glaze Up All Night
China Glaze Electric Beat
OPI Blue My Mind
Essie Bikini So Teeny

Two Manicures and Possibly a New Polish

Hey all,

I haven't been doing a lot with polish lately. I apologize for that.
I've had a lot going on here.
I mentioned months ago that there was something going on here at home and it was taking a lot of my focus. And it was causing a little bit of nerves and stress because I'm impatient.

Well, it's over.
And I have been meaning to make an announcement here...

I adopted my stepdaughters! I'm a momma, officially!
Our "Family Birthday" is May 23.

From the time we started filing all of the papers (lots of papers), it was almost 6 months.
And I had a knot in my left shoulder that just got worse as the months went on.
We are sooo excited and we've all been walking on cloud 9 for the last week.

For court, I went with nails that matched my dress. LOL. I didn't get around to posting this yet on the blog because I was preoccupied.

Colors used:
OPI Ogre the Top Blue (pointer)
China Glaze Aquadelic (middle)
Elevation Polish Pic de Sotllo (pinky)
China Glaze White on White (marble)
China Glaze Liquid Leather (marble)

Left hand!!

And since the weather in MN is starting to trudge towards summer, I wanted to do something fun and happy. Something bright. So I sponged some China Glaze neons and then stamped some fun swirls on top.

Colors used:
OPI Alpine Snow for the base (neons POP on white)
China Glaze Pool Party (pink)
China Glaze I'm With the Lifeguard (green)
China Glaze Splish Splash (blue)

I used Konad Black for the stmaping.
Plate: LeaLaC XL Plate B

Also, I'm thinking of making a limited time only polish to commemorate the adoption.
If I do this, it will be limited quantities and it's going to be free form... not based on any show or movie. I have an idea in mind, something that encompasses my family and it should be pretty.

Stay tuned for news on that.

Until then, the store is stocked and open.
Stop by and grab up a polish or two!

And of course, the green on my thumb, middle, and pinky is Lifeguard
while my pointer finger is Pic de Sotllo

What do you think?
I love this one. It's SO bright outside.

Question for Polish People

Hey all.

I posted a question on the FB page and I thought I would post it here, as well.

Would anyone be interested in the shop carrying mini bottles?
I was thinking mini duo sets, you pick the polishes out of the ones available.

What do you think?
Anyone down with this?

Let me know in the comments, or on FB.

Shop Update 4/15

For those of you that have read the blog lately, you know that I have been super excited about the fact that there is going to be a Veronica Mars movie. And I was more than happy to become a backer for the project. (I was hoping some polish peeps would donate. No one emailed me, though.)

What I haven't posted about is how irritated and depressed I am that Spring seems to have forgotten about us and we are still getting snow. In mid April. *insert massive amounts of swearing here*

The excitement from the Veronica Mars campaign is about the only thing lifting my spirits right now. My mood tends to shift when the weather is bad Mother Nature is drunk.

So, in honor of the movie getting the green light from Warner Bros. and due to begin filming this summer, I have made a new discount code for the shop.

At checkout, enter code NEPTUNE14 for 10% off of your entire order.

Also, I am working on some new stuff. (Think jelly.) I will update the blog and FB when I have swatches for you all. But since it's still in the testing phase, it could be a few weeks.

Let's see, what else?

Oh. I am toying around with new labels for the polishes. I am hoping to get some clear labels made because I am just not excited about the white ones anymore. Look for a logo change when this happens.

I think that's all for now.

See you in the shop!
