Yeah. I've been gone. It's summertime. I have no a/c. I have a daycare kiddo. Plus my four kiddos. After feeling a little guilty for a second about not having posted or, actually, keeping up on most anything nail polish related I needed to reflect for a second.
Honestly I feel a little bit scattered. I haven't done any design in a month or really pursued any of my passions. Mainly it's a little like being on a herd of bucking broncos and hanging on for dear life.
Another thing I noticed. My love of neons seems to have been misplaced. Also my extreme love of bright colors seems misplaced. While we're at it so has my passion for nail art. SAY WHAT?! They are probably with all the sock mates hiding on some tropical beach being personally waited on by a GQ model. Some things get all the luck.
So here in no a/c land, in the trenches, the battle of summer time is being waged one trip to the library, pool, fun event, or fair at a time. With crispy lobster mommy who is so concerned about making sure the troops are drowned in sunblock that she forgets to spritz herself down. What better color to commemorate my desire to end summer and escape blinding brights then Zoya Yara? Below is direct sunlight.
Since I'm a little tired of nail art but love combinations I pulled out my bottle of Brash Copper Crunch (it's a glitter topper packed with copper flakes, and both copper and gold hexes). Below is indirect sunlight.
I also notice I cleaned a little too rigorously on the pinky nail. Ah well - capturing the glitter in Yara with the half gradient of Copper Crunch requires certain angles.
See how pretty? I now feel like I can make it! Till the next sunburn anyhow *cringes*. Please get here start of school!!!
