This is a suggestion by Lucy who tempered my dislike of Lime Lights. She said why don't you put it over black? She really liked it and thought my whining had something to do with my mood. I totally agree.

I chopped my nails off in a fit of pique last night so this morning I put on a dark color because I love a really dark color on really short nails.

Rescue Beauty Lounge - Dead Calm. I love this blue. I'm pretty sure it's like Orly - Star of Bombay, although that might be slightly darker from what I can tell. I don't have that one.

I put the Sally Hanson Hard As Nails Extreme Wear - Lime Lights over it because my application was truly horrific. I had cotton threads stuck in my index nail and everything.

Here are the two bottles. They look really cool layered!

Like a peacock, in fact.

Pretty bird.

It is so humid today that my pictures look foggy!

Again, serious bad application, but I didn't want to smear the blue all over the place and layering requires a bit smaller bottom layer.

Thanks Lucy, good idea - I hope you like it!

If you're horrified by my nail chopping, I am too. I cut them with clippers and everything, no filing!! I think it's because I was frustrated and working late and really tired and I started destroying them so I just cut them off. I was surprised how long and strong they were getting, so I'm sure I'll be back there again soon. They feel weird when they're longer than a millimeter anyway!


  1. that is a very nice combination.

  2. Very pretty colours! Love how it looks layered! : D

  3. Hi Kaybee! I love the shade you came up with. It does look like peacock feathers. I'll have to try the same thing. I know that I do the same thing with my nail. If I break one I get so annoyed I chop them all off. I cut them really short. Dead Calm is gorgeous also. I have that on a list to get.
