Sweet Peacock Friday!

Howdy Folks! I can't believe it's Friday already, and the last Friday in August, to boot!! Where has Summer gone?! The upside is... well there are two upsides. One upside is that now that Fall is here we can start reaching for the new Fall colors. Not to say there has to be a certain time of year to wear a certain color, but there is just something about the smell of pumpkin and spices in the air, leaves changing colors on the trees, and darker, smokier colors on one's nails. The second upside, is that even though Fall is coming, I will not be stuck dealing with another winter of cold, snow, and ice!!! :) And for that, I am grateful!

 Today I have a color from Orly's Birds of a Feather collection. I only picked up two polishes from this collection, Fowl Play, and Sweet Peacock. I am excited to use Fowl Play, (and compare it to Merry Midnight), but last night I decided to wear Sweet Peacock. And I am so glad I did. It. Is. Gorgeous. It's one of the most amazing blue foils with micro glitter I have ever seen. I have most of my nail polish packed already, but I'm anxious to compare this to Swimsuit... Nailed It! from the OPI Miss Universe collection. Anyway, it was a little streaky upon first coat. Like if you put polish down, and then went back over that section, it would totally drag the first layer of nail polish off. If you can work fast and not repeat sections too much on the first coat, you'll be fine, and the second coat applies wonderfully and hides any mishaps from the first go-round. Topped with Seche Vite and it was dry in a few minutes! Off to bed I went, and no sheet marks in the morning! Now that is a good start to Friday!








Have a great weekend!!
