Meow, kittens. Today I'd like to introduce you to one of my franken creations...Blueberry Sprinkles! Inspired by Rebecca at rebecca likes nails, I decided to play with Wet n Wild Party of Five Glitters and assorted clear, white and colored polishes (the names of which I know I wrote down somewhere but I sure as heck don't remember where) and came up with the "Sprinkle Collection." Trust me, Rebecca's tutorial is far better than anything I could come up with so be sure to click her link to check it out. Anyway, here is a shot of all my sprinkles to date, from left to right, Strawberry, Lemon, Kiwi and, today's star, Blueberry Sprinkles. Now, on to Blueberry Sprinkles indoors: and outdoors: I am soooo in love with this color. Application was a bit tricky, with the polish being a little thick in places, but I think it's worth the effort. I applied base coat and three coats of Blueberry Sprinkles. I love how it looks like a jelly sandwich but achieved with just one polish. The depth of the layers fascinates me and I can't stop looking at my nails, despite the fact that I cracked my left thumbnail at the tip of my finger, hence my new nubbins. *Tear.* I am eternally grateful to Rebecca for inspiring me and I'm super-excited to try out the other colors I made.
On a more serious note, I'd like to share that I polished my nails baby blue to show solidarity with a friend who tragically lost her infant son. Several friends of hers are joining in on this effort to honor him on July 4th. I won't name her here as her story is her own to share but if she is reading this, please know I am thinking of you and will definitely have you and your boy in my heart tomorrow, as always.
If you are American, as I am, I wish you a very happy and healthy Independence Day and to my friends around the globe, I hope tomorrow will be a lovely day for you, as well.
