The shade of inspiration

To preface this post, I am getting a new camera in T-minus five days, but I did not want to put of my decision to get happy any longer. So, I wanted to share with you the shade that made me decide to make this journey public. I could have gotten happy all on my own, but when I saw this shade on nail, I couldn't help but think "Hey, I might not be as good as my nail idols, VV and Brooke, but from what I've read of them, I think they would encourage me to give it a shot." It is their blogs, after all that helped me to reach my life-changing epiphany.

The shade is Pixel Pretty, by Sally Hansen in her HD polish line and it lights up the room. It signifies everything I wanted to gain from this journey, and what shades I wanted to take along with me. After a perfectly horrendous week at work, I decided one polish would be the beginning, bringing my grand total up to 3 polishes I own, and this was lucky No. 3.

Pixel Pretty is a delightful blue-green that has an alien quality about it, leading me to feel like a fun person again. It's shiny and went on smoothly, and the BF said it was unique, which is what I'm going for.

This took three coats, but it would have been fine with two. I had a dog smudge from a small Shih-Tzu, which was the only reason I did three.

It was a little loose in its formulation from what I was used to using a decade ago, but that could be me just getting loose to the game again. It did, however, go on smoothly and immediately shiny-- no top coat needed!
