Monday Blues: Color Club Evolution + China Glaze White Cap

Happy Monday! Here's a random blue NOTD: this is what I was rocking on my Cinderella Hand (aka dominant hand - right hand) while I had my l-o-v-e stitched mani on my left hand... There's no way I'm attempting free hand nail art with my left hand!

Blue Valentine Mani - China Glaze First Mate + Pueen 16 + Color Club Over the Moon

Hi girls today I have a Blue Valentine mani. This was the mani I originally had scheduled for this week's Monday Blues. But then I heard about Nail Polish Canada's Valentines Day Nail Art Contest and ended up doing another mani for that entry at the very last minute. I ended up posting that mani for Monday Blues instead.

This is inspired by the movie Blue Valentine and also by The Polish Playground's blue mani. From the themes in the movie I think maybe I should've put some broken hearts on here instead but I didn't have any on my stamping plates. And I didn't want my nails to be so depressing anyway haha

L-O-V-E stitched mani for Valentine's Day

Today is a holiday in my province so I don't actually have the Monday Blues today... But I still have a blue mani! I also forgot to turn off the alarm I set to go off everyday Monday-Friday... So I didn't end up sleeping in on my holiday haha :p I'm terrible at remembering my morning alarm

Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Valentine's Mani with Pueen 22 and OPI Danke-Shiny Red

First Valentine's Day Mani for the year. I felt like it was a bit too early to go all out with pink everywhere so this is a darker, more subtle Valentine's mani.

Color Club - Alias

Hey girls! I've got some Color Club for you today! Since I bought soooo much Color Club at Winners there's tons more Color Club coming! ...once I get around to swatching them all haha

This is 3 coats of Alias. Alias is from the Alter Ego collection from Spring 2011. It has a smoky gray jelly base with purple and blue glass fleck shimmer and a green duo chrome shift. The green duo chrome is more obvious in the bottle but is still visible on the nails under certain lighting conditions. 

I love the blue and purple glass fleck shimmer going on in here. Personally though, I don't like the green duo chrome shift. Not that I hate duo chromes I just dislike the shade of green it is shifting. Kind of reminds me of moss or something. Call me crazy but this one might be going to the giveaway pile.

This polish shrunk quite a bit :( I used the Color Club top coat (the one that comes with the sets) which is what I typically use... I guess it's probably due to the jelly base. Definitely do not use Seche Vite with this one! I can only imagine the shrinkage you would get :/

Blue Gradient Dotticure - Busy Girl Nails Week 4 Blue / Monday Blues

Is it cheating if I use one mani for 2 challenges? Well I guess Monday Blues isn't really a challenge... more like a theme/prompt... Anyway I didn't want to do 2 blue manis this week... I really wanted to get blue over with so I could get to all the Valentine's Day mani ideas I have saved up! Stay tuned for those later this week/next week :)
