Happy Monday, everyone! This is certainly the happiest of Mondays for me. Y'know why? Because I finally have a day off work. I don't even know what to do with myself. I'm using the Blogger scheduled post feature for the first time ever today, so hopefully this works. I got sick of leaving you guys hanging. I keep saying that regularly scheduled posting will resume soon, so this week I actually want to be true to my word.
Here is Ginger + Liz Boy Toy. Now, normally I don't like colors like this. I gave away my China Glaze For Audrey ages ago and I tend to steer clear of turquoise-ish or Tiffany blue colors because I'm just so over them. Then I met Boy Toy. I've got to say...I adore this polish. The tiny microshimmer in this makes it even more beautiful. I guess I would call this a robin's egg blue color; it's not quite Tiffany blue and turquoise doesn't seem like a fitting description. Whatever it is, it's gorgeous. I'm new to the Ginger + Liz brand, so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of quality. I loved the brush. It was just wide enough to get the job done well but not so wide that I got polish everywhere. The application was good; Boy Toy went on just a little sheer and a bit streaky, so I had to use three coats to even it out. I expected that with such a light color, though, so I'm not disappointed.
When I first put this polish on I thought it might match my H&M candy land secret agent sunnies.
I was wrong. My sunnies are much greener than Boy Toy. Ah well. You win some, you lose some. I got a new ring at the arts and crafts fair that I went to with my mom on Saturday! Lookit!
Isn't it neat? It reminds me of waves in a Hokusai painting.
There was a lot of really awesome stuff at that art show, but I'm a sucker for rings lately. This one that I got is sterling silver so it's the type of thing that has to be polished (which is annoying). I usually get a piece of jewelry every year from the show; last year I got a really cool strand of fresh water pearls. My mom got a really pretty aquamarine ring this year too. I've been spending way too much money lately. Eek. I guess I'll try to reign that in. After I buy more makeup :)
Alright, that's it for today. What do you guys think of Ginger + Liz Boy Toy? Does anyone have any other polishes from this brand? They can be purchased for $12.50 apiece at the Ginger + Liz website. I hope you all have a great Monday! I'm going to sleep in, drink lots of coffee, and lounge in the sunshine. Can't wait.
