Looks great with this sailboat sweater!
Dusty blues like Truth or Flare epitomize the feeling of spring for me. Here in Ohio we tend to get a lot of rain in the springtime, and this color reminds me of a sky that's either threatening rain or that has just cleared up. It is truly beautiful, and I love the color. I didn't really love the formula, though. I bought this one thinking it would be a creme, but it's not. It's sort of that creme-jelly hybrid that Essie does, but like...pretty heavy on the jelly. If I had known that maybe I would have been less surprised, but when I started to use it I was all, what even is this. Taking into account that it's a jelly, though, the formula was okay. My advice is to really load the brush with polish and make sure you have enough on there, and then do thin coats. But also wait between coats. Okay, so it's kind of a pain in the ass. But like I said, the color is divine so it's not that bad. I used three coats here.
Sadly, I think I returned from my trip with a cold (maybe). Yesterday I started to feel crappy once I got home, so I'll have to see how I'm feeling today. If I am sick, this will be the first time this winter. I almost made it. So close, guys. So close. If I am not sick, then I really need to come up with something fun to do this week, because Ben is taking a trip with a friend to Vegas, about which I am very jealous. Because more arctic air is blowing through here in the next couple days, and it's going to be incredibly cold AGAIN. I don't begrudge him a trip with a pal because he works really hard and deserves a break, but I'm totally aching for warm weather and I kind of wish that I could go too. Alas, Remy and I will be here snuggled up together hoping it doesn't snow too much. Speaking of the little fluffernutter, he was on his own for a few days while I was gone (my friend Jenna came over to feed him and visit with him; thanks Jenna!) and when I got home he was glued to me. It was too funny. If I sat down he was on my lap, and if I stood up he was trying to climb my pants to get to me. And he had a lot to say about his time alone. I'm pretty sure most of it was just, WHERE WERE YOU, WOMAN? He's such a good little pal.
Okay, that's all for today. I hope everyone had good weekends, and I'll talk to you later in the week.
