The Lacquer Ring – Baby Blue

Oh boy…how do I explain a month-long absence? Well, I am not going to try to–at least not in this post. I can tell you that I have tons of swatches that I will be getting up in the next couple of weeks. I know that I still haven’t picked a winner for my last giveaway so thank you all for your patience–I will pick one this weekend, I promise! Anyway, I am posting today with my gals from The Lacquer Ring and today is Lesley’s choice: Baby Blue. I really wasn’t expecting Lesley to choose such a delicate color but I’m glad that she did because it gave me a chance to pull out one of my favorite light blues in the whole wide world.

12This is Jessica Barely Blueberry from the amazing Gelato Mio! Collection. I applied 3 thin coats for full opacity–isn’t it pretty?!

34I didn’t want to just show you a blue swatch so I added a thick coat of OPI Muppets World Tour (press sample) and ended up matttifying it all with a coat of OPI Matte Top Coat (press sample). It kind of looks icy…it reminds me of a snow cone for some reason. Is that weird?

It feels good to be posting today. I would have gotten my post up sooner but I had no electricity for over a day. Some asshole who was high on something crashed his car into a utility pole. It took SoCal Edison forever to fix it and they shut down my whole street. Fun times. It was weird not having any power but I ended up not caring THAT much and  just read  with my flashlight until I fell asleep. I’m really looking forward to my weekend so I’m happy it’s almost Friday!!! Yay! Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend? Anyway, thanks so much for the visit, and I will talk to you soon.

  1. I love that blue! I only have a few Jessica’s, need to change that. Such creamy, lovely formulas and the colors flatter!

  2. Having no power is so normal over here. In fact, we regularly have rolling blackouts because the company that provides electricity to us can’t handle the demands, so they systematically switch off the power area by area for a few hours. We even have an app to monitor when our power will be off. Fun times.

  3. You don’t have to explain your absence…you just come right on back and make us buy shit, lol.
    What are you saying? AM I NOT A DELICATE FLOWER? LMAO! I originally had the idea to pick this because I read some magazine that said baby blue was “in,” and I of course thought of using it for TLR, haha.
    It kind of reminds me of snow, but LittleMonsterx14 is right that it’s also Cinderella. Glad you got to bust out a pretty from one of your favorite collections of all time. 😉
