There are some sheet marks on the polish, so for that I'm sorry, but you've got the idea. Delphinium is a lovely, slightly grayed out lavender. I'm not crazy about purples, generally, but throw some murky gray in there and I'm all over it. I think this will be nice on my toes too, since I like to wear muted colors with my crazy sandals. The formula on this was really great and I only needed two coats. I always lament about the brushes on these Sally Hansen polishes, but the more I use them the more I really get the hang of them. All in all, this was worth $6.99 to me...and I'm glad I didn't have to hunt for it ;)
Oh, and just for fun, these are delphinium flowers (I had no idea what they looked like)...
Really pretty, right? I actually made this my desktop (the image is from delphinium.co.nz).
Well, I had exactly one week off from all the pressures of...everything. Starting this week I went back to work at Coffee Inc., began an internship, was officially given the position of co-chair for a big symposium that'll happen in February 2012 and I'm starting my responsibilities as a graduate liaison for yet another symposium. In between making lattes, phone calls to donors and work for the internship, I'm also writing a proposal for an exhibition that would potentially go up in January or May, depending. I also found out that I'm a TA for Art History 101 in the fall, which I think will end up being a lot of work...but at least I don't have to think about that until August. I thought that summer would be a nice respite from the stress of school, but it's turning out to almost be, dare I say, worse. I had to take a lot of deep breaths yesterday while I was in a traffic jam on my way to work and try to tell myself that I am capable of getting everything done. I hope it's true.
BUT at least it's getting warmer. Here's the view from my little balcony.
Everything's greener, but it's still a little chilly.
Anyway, that's enough complaining from me. What do you guys think about Delphinium/the rest of the spring 2011 Tracy Reese polishes? Some look really pretty and some look kind of meh, but I feel like this pretty grayed out lavender is a total win for me.
