Green Things

**Notice anything different?  Yep.  I changed things around a little.  New background = new blog button!  Check it out and grab one!**

Good morning, Kitschies!  I hope all of you in the Land of the Internets are doing well.  Can you believe it's almost August?!  Where has the Summer gone?  I remember taking Nate to his first day of Kindergarten and now it's almost time for him to start first grade.  *sigh*

I've been seriously horrible about blogging lately and I'm not gonna apologize!  LOL  I've been skating, reading (a lot!!), visiting with family, eating (probably more than I should), and watching TV (not a lot).  I'm home with Nate today and I thought I'd take advantage of the quiet (it's 7:30 and he's still in bed - that's how you know he's sick) and do some picture prep and maybe get a post (or a few, hopefully) knocked out.  I was reviewing the backlog of pictures and I came across this one that I'd forgotten about.

This is the gorgeous Zoya Midori.  It's a beautiful lime green with a golden flash.  It's bright but not overly obnoxious (say, like CC What A Shock!).

I love how the gold flash makes this green glow.  I'm not usually too partial to green polish, but this one is so pretty - it's a Zoya must have.  I had a bit of a thin spot near the cuticle on a few fingers but I don't think it's the polish's fault - probably more of a rush fault on my part.

Sorry this one's a little blurry.  I used Bundle Monster plate BM04 and ChG Jolly Holly for the stamping.

I don't usually post makeup looks but keeping in the swing of green things, I thought I'd share a look I did for the Albuquerque Comic Expo in early June.

I said I'm not too partial to green nail polish...but I loves me some green eyeshadow!  The gold is Fyrinnae Rapunzel Had Hair Extensions, lime green is from the Maybelline Forrest Fury palette and the dark green is a base of the darker green in Forrest Fury with Fyrinnae Dark Fantasy over top.

I'm off to snuggle with Mr Nate.  Fevers are the worst!  Enjoy your day and come back soon - there will be more things shared on Kitschy Suburbia soon.

Not partial to green polish?! What is this madness? Hehe. And I need more makeup posts, too! I love how you did your eyes. I hope Nate is feeling better!
