I apologize for the title of this post. I was trying to come up with something both relevant and clever,  but...*sigh*

This is Sand Dolla Make You Holla from the Sea Goddess collection by China Glaze. It's a ridiculous name for a nail polish, but it's a pretty unique and interesting polish.

It's a white texture polish with multicoloured glitter mixed in. I have to say that I was pretty excited about this one. White texture and multi coloured glitter just SCREAMED frosting and sprinkles to me! 

Admittedly, I did not love this polish as much as I thought I would. It took 3 coats to get it to be somewhat opaque, and it probably could have used one more. The white base actually pulled a little pink once it was on the nail. I still enjoyed the concept of this polish, and it did remind me of sprinkles (yum), it just didn't meet my expectations formula wise. I might wear it again,  if I'm ever in a sugary mood :)

I did pick up 2 other shades from this collection that I haven't worn yet, but I'm sure I'll be getting around to doing so come summer.

After a long absence,  I HAVE RETURNED! My computer has been running at a snail's pace (at best), AND I seem to have misplaced my camera's charger in my move last fall, so I'll be continuing courtesy of the Blogger app on Android.

Life has been hectic in general, and I have just recovered from a bit of a funk...I'm convinced it was seasonal affective disorder because I've been feeling much better now that the weather is a bit nicer.

To go with that, we have my first attempt at nail art in a very long time!  I got this idea from cutepolish on YouTube. Don't you just love her nail art videos (and her soothing voice)?

The colours I used were Pistache by Sinful ColorsHamptons Peach by NYC, and Ahoy by China GlazeThe green of Pistache is much less vibrant in real life - it has more of a dusty feel to it. It's a particular shade of green that I've been looking for for quite some time: deeper and more yellow toned than mint,  but still of a pastel quality. I assume that this is the colour of pistachios,  but since I'm allergic to nuts, it's not a colour that I'm particularly familiar with.

The time seemed right to jump back into blogging with the change of the seasons, finally,  after such a long and brutal winter. We'll see how well I can keep up what with work and such...

Until next time!  :)
