Sally Hansen Blue-Away

Hi guys! I hope everyone is having a good week! I've spent the last week coloring more eggs than I will ever be able to eat! My sons hands despite baths and scrubbing are almost as colorful as the eggs! It's fun to do these things with him that I have such great memories of when I was little. Anyway that's what I've been up to! I searched my house for my camera the last two days, only to find it right where I left it in the kitchen! So now I can finally get you some pictures. I had this blue on but it was starting to wear, so I decided to stamp it.

This is Sally Hansen Blue-Away which is one of the Inst-Dry Polishes. This color is so pretty, but this brush....Grrrrrr! I actually cursed out the person who designed this bottle/brush the entire time I did my nails! Its like a big wide paddle on a flat stem that you cant scape the excess off in the round hole! It makes absolutely no sense! This covered in two coats, so that finally ended my frustration. The formula on this is actually pretty nice, its your standard creme.
Over this I stamped the full nail floral pattern from BM 225, with white polish, then used a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust. The FD obscured the design a bit, but I like the result. Its very springy and subtle. I'm trying to plan my easter mani next, I have a few ideas, but we'll see:-)
