This is taking FOREVER!


This is still the first side of the collar!  I've still got another one to do, plus the belt and sewing the whole thing together!    Gah!

Let's distract ourselves with some pretty nails:


This is Zoya Cho, from the spring 2012 True collection.  It's a very pretty French vanilla with just  a hint of shimmer.  Not quite enough shimmer - so I added CND Jade Sparkle.


When I put this on last night I really had trouble with the application.  It went on streaky and patchy.  I wasn't sure the second coat evened it out, but this morning everything looked OK, so maybe it was the light.

I added the Jade Sparkle this morning, as I've found that I can get away with adding other polishes and quick-dry topcoats to Zoya on the second day without getting shrinkage.  I was surprised that it doesn't flash as green against this color as it does against darker colors - it's flashing more yellow.  Still pretty though!

  1. Nice layering! I wouldn't have guessed that was Jade Sparkle; interesting.

    I just read last night {GOOD HOUSEKEEPING} that Coral is the color of the season and I thought of you!

  5. I love that combo! I didn't get Cho because it looked really yellow in every photo I saw. It looks really, really good on you! It must be your skin tone.

    1. It is quite yellow, and I wasn't sure it would work on me, but I'm glad it does!
