Retro Chic

I didn't really have much in mind for an idea when I picked these colors.  I knew I wanted to use Icing Laura's Fave since I just got it from Katrina.  And I picked out LA Colors Baby Pink striper to go with it.  After I put it all together, it totally looks 80's fab.  I have to say, I love 80's music and I laugh at the fashion, but I think it was fun and I was part of the era.

This is indoor, florescent light.  3 coats of Laura's Fave, everything topped with 2 coats of Seche Vite.  Inside, the polish looks more blue.  Really it just looks straight blue.  You can see the shimmer better inside too.  Such a pretty color.  It has the subtle icy feel that pairs well with the pale pink.

Outdoor, sunlight.  It looks more teal/aqua outdoors.  Really, when I look at it, I see a color in between these two photos.  A bluer teal.  Who cares, it's an awesome color either way, no matter the light.

And thank you all for the kind words, it's much appreciated.  I'm trying to take every day for what it is and trying my hardest not to dwell on things I can't change.  That's the hardest part really.  I'm a worrier by nature and it takes it's toll.  One day at a time...

PS - When did I get 50 followers?  I should put together a giveaway.  Any requests?
