I would have posted sooner but I rediscovered an old love and have had a hard time dragging myself away from my old flame.... TENNIS! LOL. I started playing back in the 3rd grade and I loved it. It was the one sport I picked up naturally. I even spent a month in Florida one summer at a tennis camp with a TON of kids from the US and other countries. I haven't played in a LONG time. Possibly 2003? I took it in college for a PE credit.
My husband and I went to the courts last Wednesday and played for only half an hour due to the oppressive humidity. We took the kids and they were our ball girls! Friday we played for 2 hours, Saturday and Sunday an hour each. And I feel GREAT.
But back to the polishes. :)
These 2 polishes are the start of an ongoing series that I will be releasing based off of one of the most awesome TV ladies, ever.... Penelope Garcia on Criminal Minds. I love her. A lot. She has some of the best lines on the show, she's the comic relief, and have you seen the outfits? TONS of color and big chunky rings (my favorite kinds)!
Each polish will be named Penelope. But how will you know which is which? Simple. The season and episode number will follow the name.
This is the first Penelope polish, named Jones.
(Season 2, Ep 18)
|Purple, pink, light blue, and weeee bit of black.|
I made this to match (as close as possible) what she was wearing in that episode:
And the 2nd polish in this series is JJ:
(Season 6, Ep 2)
(Season 6, Ep 2)
|Cobalt blue, yellow, and black glitter|
And I made this one to pay homage to her outfit in the episode:
I have a few swatches but before showing them, please be aware that I was having a hard time photographing this week.
|LtoR: Jones over Sally Whirlwind White, OPI Black Onyx, Zoya Pippa, China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada, and Wet-N-Wild Saved By the Blue|

|Macro of Jones|
And I apologize for not having hand swatches of JJ yet. I hope to have that done in the next day or so. But until then, I have a nail wheel shot and macro.

That's what I have for you right now. The new shades will make their way into the shop by sometime next week, if not sooner. So stay tuned!
Have a great week!
