First Major Polish Casualty and Turquoise Gradient Manicure

I apologize because even though you don't know it, this post has taken me probably almost two months to write. Why? Well, because I was traumatized by the memories that are associated with these pictures. So imagine this, you just purchase a beautiful white quilt for your bed. Your bed now looks and feels as lush as a cloud.  You are so happy not only to lay on it but also to gaze at it lovingly. Now imagine that, you come upstairs to find that your darling three year old son has taken at least SIX bottles of your favorite (and new, might I add) BLUE nail polishes and poured them all over your BED!!!!!!!! (pause for the blank stare) -_- now can you understand why I haven't posted these pics yet???

Let me take a deep breath... And no, I did not kill him (although in my head I did use a multitude of F-words and other unsavory terms)....But I got over it rather quickly because he is just sooooo adorable. See!

That's him in his phenomenal zebra costume that his teacher made for him for a performance on International Day. Too cute!

Anyway, I promised that I would show pics from a gradient manicure with a mix of turquoise-y blues. This manicure was really pretty and I liked it much better than the darker blue version. Check it out:

I love how the light shines on this pic! Check out my ring finger. Ooh la la! So sparkly!

These are the colors that I used:

Pic sucks- I know. Sorry about that.

  1. WetNWild Fast Dry- Sorry I can't remember the color! And the bottle is GONE.
  2. NYC in East Village
  3. NYC in Turquoise Seas aka 241
  4. WetNWild Fast Dry in Blue Wants to be a Millionaire
  5. Sally Hansen in Calypso Blue (love this color!)

The funny thing is that I don't think that people really noticed that I had multiple colors on my nails. I was in many meetings and not one comment was made. Maybe they thought it was a mistake and felt that the might embarrass me if they brought it up LOL. I don't know. Anyway, I'd love for you to try it and send me some pics.

And BTW, does anyone know how to get blue nail polish out of a white quilt???...Besos, P&P.


  1. are somethin' else, I tell ya. And you're right. Good thing he is a cutie. LOL! You can totally tell that you have on multiple colors. Then again, not all of us are nail polish snobs that can notice these things. :)

  2. Hi B! Im glad you could tell ;-)
