Finger Paints Aren't You Glad-iolous? + Carnation Creation

Looove the color!!!

   Hate the name.... But moving on. I'm so madly in love with this look right now. I was craving light and airy Spring-y fun since I have been doing some darker looks lately. This really hit the spot!
I love the rings that come with these :)
  Aren't you Glad-iolous is a lovely cool toned Lavender that is rocking my world right now. This shade has just enough Blue in it to pull it out of that pastel Easter color territory. This is actually very refreshing to look at :). As you all know I have huge lady-wood for anything that is a soft Purple so I had to jump on this shade. The formula is AMAZING. Excellent pigmentation, consistency... etc... I was temped to leave it at one coat but I really like my nails to have a glassy look to them and to achieve that Two coats works best. I am madly in love with the stamping for which I used some of the new ChG Tronica colors.
Truest to color
 Carnation Creation is a bright lighter Teal. This is an awesome happy, vibrant creme. The formula on this one was perfection. I could have left if at one coat but as I said before Two coats gives my nails that glassy look.  With this one I highly recommend double base coat. My camera is not a huge fan of these types of colors and it makes them a bit more neon looking than they really are but this is a lovely shade of Teal that will brighten anyones tips and day!

  These may not be the most unique colors but they jumped out at me and I really love wearing them, they make my eyes happy. I'll be wearing these a lot this Spring!  I'm ready for Spring and tanning now... 

Are you?
