Don't know about you folks, but it feels like I've been encased in glitter since 'round about late November. The holidays do that to me. But more than two weeks after the New Year cork's been popped, I was looking to dial down the wattage a bit.
|L to R: Nubar Classic Camel, China Glaze Desert Sun, and Nubar's chocolatey-brown Marabout|
So, I began The Hunt for all things polish-related, that in any way correlated with the third letter of the alphabet.
Have I mentioned that I Have A Lot of Polish?
Much later (strong emphasis on "much"), I reached for three un-tried neutral cremes from within the bowels of my stash (more about that later):
- Nubar Classic Camel, a creamy spiced vanilla;
- China Glaze Desert Sun, a buttery caramel brown; and
- Nubar Marabout, a smooth deep chocolate.
The two accent nails were then stamped with a Bundle Monster image (plate# BM-20) that brings to mind a merging between DNA and Whoppers.
There you have it: Creamy, chocolatey, color-blocked "C" nails!
As an aside, I'm happy to report that my burgeoning stash has now been entered into a sortable database. Thanks to a head's up from my buddy, Diana, I installed this dandy little iPhone app that lets me scan the bar codes on each bottle, making for tres efficient data input.
Are you rolling your eyes?
A couple of years back, I surely would have rolled mine. Of course, that was before I acquired a disturbing amount of smile-inducing lacquer.
So, when next Wednesday's challenge rolls around...
I won't be rummaging through eight color-organized shoe boxes filled with a bazillion little bottles.
Instead, I'll pull out my trusty iPhone; sort by color family, brand or polish name, and scroll down to the letter "D"...
Yowzah, I do love technology :)
Well, that's it for today, folks! Until next time, please join me in checking out...
