Ah, happy Saturday. I just got back from dropping my mom off at the airport. I was up at the crack of 6am. I deliriously put my contacts in, put on a hoodie and some giant sunglasses and drove to the airport with my mom chattering in my ear the entire time. Ugh, so tired. Then I stumbled into Starbucks an hour later, still wearing my giant sunglasses. Then I stumbled into the grocery store clutching a soy latte and wandered the aisles picking up random stuff I thought I might need. You know, InStyle, nail polish, a new mascara...plus other non-essential items like bread and milk. Now I'm home and I'm watching Sex and the City on DVD. I don't usually post on Saturdays or Sundays, but I thought I might as well since I'm relaxing.
Wet n Wild Craze Maui
Maui is a really nice sky blue creme. Originally I thought it might be identical to what I would consider to be the epitome of sky blue, Essie Shelter Island, but after comparing the bottles I decided that Maui was a couple shades darker and therefore an on-nail comparison was unwarranted. The best way I can think to describe this color is...crisp. I'm not sure why, but that's the word that comes to mind. The formula on this was quite good. It wasn't too thin or too thick and this only required two coats.
And here is Maui again topped with one thin coat of its accompanying shimmer polish Kauai. Kauai is this blue-ish iridescent shimmer that kind of looks like it flashes green in the bottle. It reminds me of a mermaid. Again I will tell you that this would probably look kind of awesome over black. I think I'll probably have to do a skittles manicure after I'm done with these Wet n Wilds of the shimmers over black. Anyway, this blue is nice, but not really me. I like a more subdued blue. If you'll remember, though, I usually like to wear blue when I see my boyfriend because he normally has positive reactions to it. He probably won't notice, but that's alright. Ugh, I can't believe I have to go back to the airport tonight. Torture, I swear.
Anyway, how do you guys feel about this blue combination? Love it, hate it? I'm going to pick my giveaway winner in a bit, after I print out my little Excel spreadsheet ;) Have a great weekend, everyone!
