Milani Orchidia

 - by Playing with Polish

I guess I really underestimated how much moving could knock me out of my groove. Mostly in a good way, but it has left me a bit disoriented. It has also taken more energy than I had anticipated getting settled and getting back to doing normal things like blogging. Anyway, Milani’s Orchidia is an orchid purple with a subtle silver shimmer. Yikes! I did not do a post manicure clean-up with nail polish remover, and it really shows in the picture. I hope you will forgive my mess, as I previously mentioned I am totally not in my normal groove! Orchidia is a pretty purple, and a nice beauty fix at a great price. I think I paid $3.49 at Fred Meyer.

Application was very good, but slightly sheer. Three coats and a top coat shown.

PwP Moved to Portland

 - by Playing with Polish

Wow, it feels like it has been forever since my last blog post! Well I’m not dead and haven’t lost interest in blogging. My husband got a new job, and we moved to Portland, OR. The past month has been crazy, but we are really starting to settle into our new home. My nails and cuticles are in bad shape from the move, but I am woking on rehabbing them. I have also picked-up a few polishes since we arrived here just before midnight on April 21st. I am looking forward to blogging again, and having fun with nail polish. Portland is a beautiful place, and hopefully it will provide a lot of inspiration! :-) We have a yard now, and I am looking forward to trying my hand at some gardening. It is likely that I will start wearing my nails a bit shorter so I can better tend to my flowers and veggies. I will need to work on getting a photo tent though, because one thing it will likely not provide is a lot of sunny days for outdoor photo shoots. Anyway, it is so good to be back! :-D
