Whats on my toes?!?

Happy Monday Everyone!! 

I hope everyone had a great start to the week! 

I guess I sort of did. Yesterday was a nice warm sunny day and it really made me want to paint my toenails (hence the "whats on my toes?" title...)

So while spending some quality time with the bf, who left yesterday for Vancouver for a week, and watching some Cougar Town (PS - if you do not already watch this show you have to start!!) I decided I would paint my toesies!!!

I originally wanted something really springy and bright, but then I changed my mind and went with these polishes:
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Flashy Fushia
  • Joe Fresh in Prune (I think that's the name, the sticker came off)
  • Borghese Nail Lacquer in B125 Cristallo Shimmer (for a little extra sparkle!)
So of to work painting I went! I started with the Joe Fresh Prune color and did all my toes!!
Then I took a toothpick (also to paint my little toe) and put two Flashy Fushia dots on my big toe, and then pulled the dots together to form a heart. It kind of worked, but this plan was a lot easier in theory, hence the two different sized hearts. Oops.

Then I waited for the big pinky heart blobs to dry. 

I waited a little longer...


And just a little more...


Then, the most EXCITING part, Christallo Shimmer for SPARKLE!!!!!! I used this color just to lightly go over everything to give it a little sparkle! And less of a dark prune-y winter-y depressing shade. I love the color, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't really scream "Its summer! Look at my pretty toes" but with some sparkle is sure does!!!!

So here is the "It's Summer and Warm and I can wear Flip Flops so look at my Pretty Toes" picture!

Q:  Do you paint your toenails with seasonal inspirations? Or just a favorite go to color?
