I've Got the Blues, and I like it!

You know, back in the day, there was a time when I only wore red or pink nail polish. Of course back then (you don't want to know how long back that was!), I don't think there was many other colors besides pink or red! And that was ok, I mean, who doesn't love a good red or pink? Pink is after all one of my very favorite colors! You wouldn't know it though, if you happen to follow my Instagram account. I was going through it the other day and said to myself, yeah I sure have the blues goin' on...and the teals... and the greens... you get the picture...

I never thought I would develop such a love affair with blue, turquoise, green, or any variation on my nails but honestly, I just can't get enough! Whenever I see a new shade that's been released, I say, oh, just this one more. Who knew there could be so many shades of blue and turquoise and what the heck, why don't we just throw purple and green in there too?

I wanted to share a couple of my favorites here because even though I post regularly on Instagram, sometimes these beauties need a blog post of their own...

One of my favorite manis is the one I am wearing right now. It is the beautiful combination of  Liquid Sky Lacquer's Bird of Paradise and Twilight Hummingbird.

I just adore these polishes! The holographic green/pink in Twilight Hummingbird is amazing and Bird of Paradise is such a gorgeous blue/red multichrome. No matter which way you move your hands, the colors change continuously, it really does remind me of the hummingbirds we are so fortunate to have here in Southern California year round.

Look at the color shift!
Check out the color difference between my index finger and pinkie, amazing!

Plus, I had ordered a variety pack of nail vinyls from and have been dying to try them out. If you haven't tried them yet, you must! Especially if you are clumsy with nail art like I am, these are so easy peasy, even I can do them! I can't wait to try more! And I am so in love with Liquid Sky Lacquer, I am definitely going to be adding more of Carolyn's polishes to my stash soon! You can check out her shop here.

One other recent favorite mani I wanted to share is one that combines my favorite things - glitter, holo goodness and blues! I received my first Joss Nail Lacquer in Caribbean Holiday and oh my, it is definitely full of holo goodness!

I added piCture pOlish's Lagoon by Fashion Polish as an accent on my ring finger. I've been wanting this polish by piCture pOlish ever since it was first released as a collaboration polish last year. It is a pure turquoise delight! Oh the shimmer and glitter! Between the two, I stared at my hands all day long... for a solid week! I bought both of these at but you can buy piCture pOlish direct at their web site plus they have a full network list where you can purchase as well.

Do you have one particular favorite colo(u)r of polish that you tend to lean towards?
