Forget Me Nots in Fall

Last week I showed you little blue flowers on a nude background. This week, another manicure done with Forget-Me-Nots, on a burgundy background. Of course, last week's was done in April, and this manicure was done in August, which may have had a bearing on the base color chosen!

The blue is definitely Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau, and the yellow looks to be Sally Girl. Banana. My first thought, looking at the base color, is that it is Rimmel Burgundy Flirt, but looking at the swatches online, Burgundy Flirt looks brighter red than this. Now I'm curious and I'm going to make a note to myself to look through my stash when I get home today and find out which polish I used here. ^_^

Little Blue Flowers

My co-worker named this manicure Bluebells in Sunshine. However, the flowers don't look anything like bluebells to me, so I disagree! They're closer to Forget-Me-Nots or Baby Blue Eyes, I would think. Except I put white stripes on some of the petals and a black center, which doesn't quite match either of those. Whatever they may be, I think they came out pretty!

I know I used a base of NYC Fashion Safari, but other than that I'm really not sure which polishes I used. This manicure was done back in April, so your guess is probably as good as mine. I think that green might be Sinful Colors Exotic Green, but I'd have to go through my stash to be sure.

I have no clue what I had in mind when I did this manicure other than I had had DARK colors on my nails for quite a while beforehand, and I wanted *pastel*. I wanted bright and light and fluffy, and this is what came out.

I think I succeeded, anyway. :) My co-worker named it confetti, which I think is appropriate in this case. I don't always agree with her naming conventions, but I always share, but this time I liked it.

I don't remember what polishes I used, other than the pink and green were both Salon Perfect colors.

Red & Silver Glitter Glow

My co-worker named this "Hogalicious", but I think that had more to do with it being a home game weekend when I asked her for the name of it. It wasn't my intention to be team-supportive when I painted my nails with this, I'm quite sure. ^_^ I don't think the Razorbacks would care for rhinestones and glitter, really.

This is one of those mani's where I wiggled my fingers off and on throughout the time I wore it, just to enjoy the sparkle and shimmer as the light played across my nails. Just check out this out-of-focus glow!

No other comments, so enjoy the pretties...
