Hello, my lovelies!
It’s a scorching hot Friday afternoon in oh, about half of the US. I hope everyone is staying cool! The Big Fluffy Dog, also known as The Rare Tropical Husky, wants to go out and sunbathe and sit under the shed. Mommy (me) says no. So she’s currently snoozing a few feet away, on her back, legs splayed, back slightly arched. I do know other people with Siberian Huskies that prefer heat to cold too so she’s not alone, but it’s a small percentage. She has very poor judgment when it comes to the weather!
So I decided to do some more colorblocking, for Shelley’s Sassy Saturday mani contest! This is only my second attempt, but I used two polishes that have been waiting their turn: Zoya Arizona and Eddie Mojito Madness, both from collections this year.
Arizona is a gorgeous orange crème. You know me and orange! Arizona was part of the Beach and Surf collection this spring. This one truly does make me think of orange sherbet, with its almost-cloudy finish. It seemed more like a jelly with its opacity and took 3 coats to be fully opaque. But it went on smooth as silk, like most Zoya.
Then I added some quarter sections of Essie Mojito Madness. This isn’t quite a Kelly green, but it is a fairly bright and cheerful green. It was part of Essie’s summer line featuring Bikini So Teeny. And it went on nice and smooth too, and needed just one thick coat to be fully opaque.
