For Pi Day I stamped over A England Whispering Waves using Hehe plate Hehe-053 and Colour Alike “a Venus”. Only had time to do a couple of nails with the Pi-themed stamping plate…
Here is Whispering Waves on its own; two coats plus top coat.
Happy Pi Day!
Happy New Year! This beautiful, bright blue polish is Pookie from the Pretty Serious Well Meaning But Ultimately Quite Awkward Pet Names collection!
Two coats plus top coat, great formula! Love this unique shade of turquoise blue!
Now, Pookie is one of the nicknames of my cat Possum – actually, The Lady-Pookie is her full nickname. Because Pookie was a nickname of one of my parents’ cats (may he rest in peace) who was an orange tabby, and Possum is also an orange tabby but a female orange tabby. I tried to take a “my nails and my cat” pic here but she wasn’t too thrilled with the flash!
I stamped over Pookie using Kleancolor Metallic Orange and these cute little roly-poly cats that remind me of Possum, from Hehe plate Hehe-023!
Here’s Possum still at the top of that cat tree, still not looking too thrilled!
Sometimes she likes to roll around on the floor and show off her super fluffy belly!
I had better share this fall-themed manicure before the snow flies, which fortunately hasn’t happened yet here!
The base for this mani was Emily de Molly Copper Patina and Femme Fatale Infamous Riddle.
Copper Patina is a turquoise creme with pink-to-gold duochrome shimmer. I used two coats plus top coat.
Infamous Riddle is an olive-leaning green jelly with strong red-to-gold duochrome shimmer. I used three coats plus top coat for this one.
I really love both of these polishes!
I stamped fall leaves and trees on them using Kleancolor’s Metallic Orange, Metallic Mango, and Metallic Brown.
The plates used were Bundle Monster BM-04, Hehe 048, and Born Pretty BPL-015 for the tree.
So happy with how these turned out! Here are approximately a zillion more photos, heheh. 😉
Black Dahlia Lacquer Lace Aloe is a beautiful turquoise linear holo with blue glass flecks. Two coats plus top coat. With flash:

I found these swatches from a while ago when my nails were nubs so I thought I would post them! This is Indigo Bananas Event Horizon, a mainly teal/turquoise/blue multichrome flakie. Three coats. In late afternoon sun:

Teal Hydrangea is a gorgeous turquoise/teal creme polish. I used two coats plus top coat; the formula was great.
Here’s a comparison with a couple of other turquoises: left to right/top to bottom are BDL Teal Hydrangea, China Glaze Aquadelic (2 coats plus top coat), China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle (3coats plus top coat).
Picture Polish Calm is like the turquoise/teal version of Autumn that I posted the other day. Jelly-based light teal blue with Picture Polish’s signature scattered holo flecks, two smooth coats plus top coat used here. Photos with flash.
I compared Calm to Picture Polish Lagoon and to LA Girl Teal Dimension. Lagoon and Calm are fairly similar but Lagoon has more creme to its base; as you can see in the bottles this makes it a bit lighter/more turquoise leaning:
Top to bottom: LA Girl Teal Dimension (much darker, obviously!), PP Calm, PP Lagoon, PP Calm. With flash:
Lagoon shows less visible nail line due to the creme in the base, but it and Calm do have a pretty similar shade on the nail. Lagoon also has the addition of medium size hex glitter in it. Lagoon has always been one of my favourite Picture Polishes and now I’m glad to have both of these! In shade:
Again, top to bottom: LA Girl Teal Dimension, PP Calm, PP Lagoon, PP Calm, and the sun came out for these last two pics:
