I'm Blue Over You

Happy Monday, Kitschies!  I had a pretty good weekend.  I got to have some alone time with the hubs on Friday night.  We went to dinner then a bar to see one of his favorite bands (Mr Gnome) perform.  It was a super small place, so no matter where we were, we had good seats.  I enjoyed their set and it's always nice to "find" a new group.  Then Sunday, I got to skate!  WOOT!!  I was supposed to go to practice on Saturday but I didn't have my helmet and the woman who has it wasn't at that practice, so I got caught up on some of my shows.  I ended up skating about 9 miles and my legs feel really good despite not having been on my skates a lot lately.  I fell on my butt trying to walk down a hill instead of skating it and now I feel like I have whiplash (FUN!), but other than that, it was a good outing!  LOL

I have a mani that's been sitting in my pending folder for a LONG time.  I couldn't tell you when I wore this.  If I had to guess, I'd say July-ish?  I know...I'm bad.  I'm trying my best to get all my pics prepped - I'm getting there!!  On to the pretties, k?

This is OPI Austin-Tatious Turquoise from their Spring Texas collection.  It's a gorgeous glass-flecked turquoise with a faint shift of purple.  Sorry this pic is so blurry, but it's the only one I got that captures the purple flash.

Here's a flash pic.  It's such a pretty, pretty color.  The downside?  It's super sheer!  I ended up using a base color (LA Colors Static Electricity - a blue creme) and then using at least 2, if not 3, coats of ATT.

Natural light.  I like that this polish changes a bit depending on the light source.  It looks a lot more blue in this pic than turquoise, but no matter what way you look at it, it's great!  It kind of reminds me of a sparkling blue pool.

What do you think of this blue beauty?  Do you own it?  I only picked up this one and Do You Think I'm Tex-y from the OPI Texas collection.  Though I'm thinking about picking up the orange "sorbet", too.

Have a great rest of your day!

Pretty. I might have to do a similar color on my nails soon. Maybe tomorrow.

That's a lot of skating girl!!!

I LOVE that color! It's so pretty. When you were colors on your nails, do you coordinate your outfits with that color? Inquiring minds want to know. =)

9 miles? That's far!

I can't remember if I got this one or not; I think so, but I sure haven't worn it if I did. I have worn Houston We Have a Purple and that made me want to get the rest of the jellies but I haven't gotten around to that yet.

I confess that I don't know how to skate. I'm so bad at balancing. It is seriously annoying. :(

I don't think I have this polish but the shade looks pretty. I think that I have a similar shade but it has more shimmer on it. I will have to take another look at my stash. :)

Not sure what I'm more impressed with – the blue or the flash was able to capture the blue. :)

I'm not too crazy about this one. The colour looks pretty and everything, but it just looks to sheer for me. I almost picked it up once, it's much prettier in person. But there is just something that bugs me about this polish, don't know what it is.
